Batista vs. Chris Benoit
Evolution Int, Gene Snitsky Int, Edge/Eric Bischoff Int
Edge vs. Chris Jericho
Randy Orton Int
Sylvan Grenier vs. Shelton Benjamin
Debate: Muhammad Hassan and Khosrow Daivari vs. Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross- For the first 8 minutes or so, I was thinking that this was going to be a way better debate than the forgettable Scott Steiner/La Resistance debate a couple years ago, mostly because nobody believed Steiner. But then the segment cut a little short and they went to the, attack the announcers card and it went kind of lame from there. Hassan is getting a reaction from the crowd though.
Trish Stratus vs. Victoria- After the match, Lita comes to brawl with Trish and then Kane’s pyros go off. I’m thinking they were not meant to because Lita stopped to look around like, WTF? Then she continued pounding on Trish until Gene Snitsky came out, then Kane returned after 3 months away and chased Snitsky off.
Elimination Chamber Highlights- From SummerSlam 2003.
Christy/Eugene/William Regal Segment

Shelton Benjamin vs. Maven

Triple H/Batista Int
Edge vs. Rhyno
Edge/Shawn Michaels Interview/Brawl- Some fans start chanting “You Screwed Bret” at Michaels!! In Florida, not Canada. Shawn Michaels then mentions that some people have made their way here from Canada and then he breaks off with what will probably be the Quote of the Year, “What is it with you people coming to Florida, stay in your own country!” Any reference to Survivor Series 1997, I will mark out big time.

Randy Orton and Shawn Michaels vs. Christian and Edge- Exciting tag team match on Raw with lots of action at the end. We almost get an E and C “Conchairto” but Michaels ducks out of the way.
Chris Masters vs. Steven Richards- Masters makes his debut. To me, he looks like Peyton Manning on steroids.
Batista/Triple H Highlights
IC Title Match: Gene Snitsky vs. Shelton Benjamin
Stacy Keibler/Chris Benoit/Christian/Chris Jericho/Wrestlemania Commercial
Triple H/Ric Flair Segment- Triple H reveals his plan for Batista to Flair but little does he know that Batista is outside the door, listening to the conversation.

Chris Benoit vs. Muhammad Hassan
Batista Int, Triple H/Ric Flair Int
Christy Hemme Segment- Her Playboy spread previews.
IC Title Match: Gene Snitsky vs. Shelton Benjamin
Smackdown Rebound
Chris Masters vs. Scrub- I know this is only “The Masterpiece’s” second match on TV, but so far he is a dud in the ring.
Batista Interview- Triple H plays his bitch part and pouts on the ramp like a pussy while Batista is beating on Ric Flair. Batista says here that Raw is all about Triple H, which has been true the last several years and I look forward to the day when he isn’t the focal point of the show.
Chris Jericho vs. Maven
Trish Stratus/Christy Hemme Interview/Brawl- Trish kicks Hemme in the head, gets out the spray paint, and paints on the back of Hemme, “N W O” not really, she paints “slut”.
Billy Graham/Randy Orton Int
Edge Int
Street Fight: Edge vs. Shawn Michaels- With Michaels’ face is covered with blood, Kurt Angle comes in after HBK pins Edge and attacks Michaels. After, he accepts his challenge for Wrestlemania. Shawn Michaels vs. Kurt Angle at WM 21.

John Cena Interview
Tag Team Title Match: Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns vs. Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero
Diva Segment, Teddy Long/Carlito Int
Be Cool/Rock Promo- OK Vince, do what you have to do to get The Rock back because some people such as myself want to see him again on WWE TV.
Booker T vs. Heidenreich
Kurt Angle Interview- Kurt says he is going to beat Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania, or something like that until Shawn Michaels actually shows up as a camera man to attack Angle. ‘Ah Ha! No wonder you finally watched Smackdown, Aaron’
Dawn Marie and Rene Dupree vs. Michelle McCool and Big Show- No No NO! The reason is finally watched Smackdown after being away from it for almost 8 months isn’t because Shawn Michaels was going to be on, but because it’s the wrestling debut of Michelle McCool!! Not to knock Michelle McCool, but in wrestling, the only thing worse than most wrestler’s wrestling debut is a Diva’s wrestling debut. Well, most diva matches also. Those Divas are only hired to show skin, so why don’t they just do that? Only 2 or 3 out of all the divas actually have skills in the ring. “Girls only like guys with skills. Nun-chuck skills, Bow hunting skills.”
Justin Hawk Bradshaw Interview- “I am your WWE Champion”- Bradshaw. Must he remind me why I stopped following Smackdown in the first place?
Joy/Big Show/Funaki Int- Joy is by far the hottest Diva in wrestling. At least Smackdown has that going for them but if she tries to get in the ring as a wrestler… :(
Raw Rebound
US Title Match: Orlando Jordan vs. John Cena- During the match, Cena is nailing 10 “punches” to the top of Jordan’s hair in the corner of the ring. Orlando then just powerbombs Cena. Well John, if you actually tried connecting with his face instead of his hair, he might not have been able to deliver that powerbomb. Anyways, Orlando wins the US title with help from JBL and The Basham Brothers. So now on Smackdown, we have JBL as champ and Orlando Jordan as US champ??? At least it has Joy Giovanni..
3/7/05 Raw in Raleigh, NC

Shawn Michaels/Kurt Angle Interview- “Just remember Shawn, it’s hard to deliver Sweet Chin Music when your ankle is snapped in two”- Kurt.

Chris Jericho vs. Edge
Randy Orton/Eric Bischoff Interview- Orton Challenges Undertaker to a match at Wrestlemania to kill the legendary WM winning streak but the crowd doesn’t like it.
Wrestlemania Card Video
Chris Benoit vs. Shelton Benjamin- Benoit gets Shelton to tap out. This makes me wonder, shouldn’t Benoit get an IC Title shot seeing how he just beat the Intercontinental champion in a non-title match?
Eric Bischoff/Coach/Muhammad Hassan Int, Smackdown Rebound
Christy Hemme/Trish Stratus/Lita Interview/Brawl- Lita has been gone because of knee surgery for several months now but the story goes that she has been training Hemme how to wrestle. Hemme gives Trish a Twist of Fate.
Triple H/Ric Flair/Eric Bischoff Int
Batista vs. Ric Flair- Batista breaks Triple H’s Sledgehammer in half over his knee.
3/10/05 Smackdown in Roanoke, VA

JBL/Orlando Jordan Interview- They destroy John Cena’s custom US title belt with an explosive inside of a garbage, which I liked but then Michael Cole whines that it was John Cena’s prize possession and it meant so much to him. If JBL doesn’t like Cena, why would he care? No wonder the original DX punked Cole so much when he first came to the WWE, because he’s a little biatch!
Booker T vs. Heidenreich
Teddy Long/Carlito Cool Int
Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio/Chavo Guerrero Int- “What’s wrong with him?” – Eddie about Chavo. “I don’t know, he’s your nephew” – Rey. “Well that’s not my fault.”
Luther Reigns vs. Mark Jindrak
John Cena/Teddy Long Interview
Ladder Match: Kurt Angle vs. Mark Haywood- Hay who? Exactly but, Angle does win his first ladder match!! After, he talks trash on Shawn Michaels and claims he has arranged a match with Marty Jannetty on Monday. Not sure exactly what he means.
Big Show Int, Wrestlemania Card Video
Carlito/Undertaker Interview- Undertaker accepts Randy Orton’s challenge for Wrestlemania and then gives Carlito a nasty tombstone piledriver. Damn, no wonder the move was banned.
Tag Team Title Match: JBL and Orlando Jordan vs. Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio
3/14/05 Raw in Atlanta, GA

Highlight Reel with Randy Orton/Jake the Snake Roberts- Jake the Snake!! Was nice to see him but ladies and gentlemen, if you smoke for a long time, you may end up with a raspy voice just like the Snake. The WWE might not have wanted it but Randy Orton probably turns heel because he RKOs Jake here and he is going after The Undertaker.
Kane vs. Christian and Tyson Tomko
Ric Flair/Gene Snitsky Int
Lita/Christy Hemme Int/William Regal/Tajiri Segment
Shawn Michaels/Marty Jannetty Int- Jannetty!! Wow, 2 old school guys return on one Raw! I’m marking out big time.
Shelton Benjamin vs. Edge- Edge attacks Shelton before the match starts.
Rockers vs. La Resistance- Rockers one night reunion! Nice.
Triple H/Ric Flair Int, Trish Stratus Int, Gene Snitsky/Ric Flair/Batista Int
Chris Benoit vs. Triple H- WWE is having a WCW moment. They are claiming Triple H has never beaten Chris Benoit but my Smackdown from 2/3/00 clearly shows Triple H pinning Benoit after the pedigree.

Big Show Interview
Orlando Jordan/JBL Int
JBL/John Cena Interview
JBL and the Basham Brothers vs. John Cena, Eddie Guerrero, and Rey Mysterio
3/21/05 Raw in Birmingham, AL

Shawn Michaels vs. Rob Conway- Michaels wins with his old school, flying forearm, kick flip up, elbow drop, then Sweet Chin Music. Segment would have been complete if he took the French flag that Conway brought out, put it in his nose, and acted like he couldn’t get away.
Kurt Angle Video
Christy Hemme, William Regal, and Tajiri vs. Maven, Simon Dean, and Molly
Triple H Interview
Chris Jericho and Shelton Benjamin vs. Edge and Christian- Edge gets some nice crowd reactions. He should go back to face and turn Randy Orton heel.
Ric Flair int, Batista/Eric Bischoff Int, Randy Orton, Stacy Keibler Int
Randy Orton Interview- As expected, Orton turns heel by RKOing Stacy Keibler who according to JR was his girlfriend. Why was she his girlfriend, because they were on TV together for 5 weeks in a row and finally kissed once?
Tyson Tomko vs. Chris Benoit
Shawn Michaels/Muhammad Hassan Int- Match between these two next week on Raw.
Wrestlemania Taxi Driver Commercial- Funniest one yet. Lots of superstars try the line, “you talkin’ to me?” Standouts were Candice Michelle when she seductively spun around (hot!), Big Show being too big for the set, Batista asking what his line is and the director saying, “you talking to me” (Batista is like, Yea I’m talking to you), and Snitsky. When Gene Snitsky says the line, a pan drops and he says, “that wasn’t my fault”. Good segment but WTF was Joy??
Lumberjack Match: Batista vs. Kane
3/24/05 Smackdown in Memphis, TN

Big Show/Luther Reigns Interview- Big Show pushes over a Jeep. I just had flash backs of The Rock saying “Meep Meep!”.

Dawn Marie vs. Michelle McCool
Carlito Int, Wrestlemania Taxi Driver Commercial
Booker T vs. Rene Dupree
JBL/John Cena Interview- Bad bad interview. JBL stands there while Cena paints on Bradshaw’s car, his suit, cuts off his tie, just really weak. Makes me appreciate the Rock/Austin interviews before their Wrestlemania matches.
3/28/05 Raw in Ft. Worth, TX

Highlight Reel- The following stars talk about winning the “money in the bank” match at Wrestlemania…
Chris Jericho, Shelton Benjamin, and Chris Benoit vs. Christian, Edge, and Tyson Tomko- OK, everyone but Tomko who isn’t in the WM Ladder Match.
Batista/Eric Bischoff Int
Arm Wrestling Match: Christy Hemme vs. Trish Stratus
Randy Orton Interview- Orton says he isn’t scared of the Undertaker until a video plays showing clips of all 12 Undertaker victories at Wrestlemanias.
Randy Orton/Kane Int
Tag Team Title Match: La Resistance vs. Maven and Simon Dean vs. Tajiri and William Regal
Triple H/Eric Bischoff Int, Smackdown Rebound
Shawn Michaels vs. Muhammad Hassan- Out comes Kurt Angle to attack Shawn Michaels.
Face to Face with Triple H and Batista- This was a good segment for Batista, for the most part. I liked the way he looked, the way you acted calm during Triple H’s rambling, his quick line of “are you talking to me?” was nice and he didn’t look like he was trying too hard on the mic. I could get with that, I can get with wrestlers who seem natural out there, who don’t look like they are trying too hard. But then he kind of lost some of the momentum when Triple H slapped him and he dropped on Triple H, throwing these weak, sissy looking punches to the side of Triple H’s dome. He could have made it look like he was really hitting him a bit more but hey, I do see some potential in Batista and he should be a great star in 2005.
3/31/05 Smackdown in Houston TX

Eddie Guerrero vs. Danny Basham- Rey Mysterio “accidentally” causes Eddie to lose the match. I put that word in quotations because probably a few weeks from now, Mysterio will say that he did it on purpose. That’s Wrestling!
JBL/Teddy Long Int
Cruiserweight Title, Battle Royal Match: Paul London wins by eliminating Billy Kidman. I thought Kidman would win with all the old WCW cruiserweight guys rumored to be coming to the WWE.
Undertaker/Dirty Hairy Wrestlemania Commercial
Carlito/Teddy Long Interview- Carlito wants back in the ring tonight so tonight, he gets John Cena.
Rey Mysterio/Eddie Guerrero Int
Luther Reigns vs. Booker T
Cowboy Bob Orton/Teddy Long Int
Bob Orton/Undertaker Interview- Randy Orton comes out to give the Dead Man the RKO as the Orton twins set up the Undertaker. Randy looks just like his old man.
Rey Mysterio vs. Doug Basham
Kurt Angle Interview- Angle beats up Josh Matthews, followed by a Kurt Angle Video. If the WWE tried, they could easily do something with Josh in the following weeks with Kurt Angle and make Josh a big face announcer, not that I am promoting making announcers heel or face.
Big Show/Akebono Weigh-In- After they weigh in and say they respect each other, Akebono has a squash match with some jobber.
Carlito vs. John Cena- Carlito’s return match but it’s spoiled when Justin Hawk Bradshaw comes down to have Cena arrested. The “Arrest him, he assaulted me” card has been over played and I don’t need to see it for at least another 5 years.
4/4/05 Raw in Las Angeles, CA, Night After Wrestlemania

Wrestlemania Highlights
Triple H Interview- Triple H will get his rematch with Batista and knowing Triple H, he will get his title back at Backlash.
IC Title Match: Chris Jericho vs. Christian vs. Shelton Benjamin- I’m not big on 3 way matches but this one was good with some innovative stuff.
Edge/Eric Bischoff Int
Randy Orton/Eric Bischoff Interview- Orton claims he has no respect for Batista.
Christy Hemme/Trish Stratus/Lita Segment
Eugene/Hulk Hogan/Muhammad Hassan/Khosrow Daivari/Wrestlemania Highlight
Shawn Michaels/Muhammad Hassan Interview- DON’T SCARE ME SHAWN!! I thought for a few seconds that Shawn might say he was hanging up his boots but never did. *phew* He does some classic HBK stuff like lay on the top rope, some facial expressions, and stuff like that until Hassan comes out to attack him.
Edge vs. Chris Benoit- Two great wrestlers going at it the night after Wrestlemania. Benoit wins but after the match, Edge attacks Benoit with 2 chair shots to Benoit’s injured arm.
Simon Dean/Maven/Steve Austin Interview/Brawl- Steve Austin sighting! Some lines by Austin, “look at me when I’m talking to you, you little purple Bastard.” “Wipe that stupid look off your face. Oh wait, you were born like that, nothing you can do about that.” Maven knocks Simon Dean’s drink out of his hand and all over Austin. Austin stares while the crowd chats, “you fucked up, you fucked up!”. Austin then does what Austin does best.
Randy Orton vs. Batista- Batista finally pins Orton after Orton has pinned Batista twice this year. Where was a Batista interview though? He did just win the title last night for his first time.
4/7/05 Smackdown in San Diego, CA, Show After Wrestlemania
JBL/Eddie Guerrero/Booker T/Rey Mysterio/Kurt Angle/Big Show/Teddy Long Interview- Everyone wants a title shot. Cole and Tazz say that they have never seen anything like this. Short term memories because back in 2000/2001, every other show started with a 6-8 man interview.
Cruiserweight Title Match: Billy Kidman vs. Paul London

Triple H/Hurricane Interview
Triple H vs. Hurricane and Rosey
Chris Masters vs. Seth Skyfire- Chants of “boring” confirms my feelings that Masters sucks.
Shawn Michaels vs. Khosrow Daivari- Thanks to Muhammad Hassan, Daivari pins Michaels.
Shawn Michaels/Eric Bischoff Int
Highlight Reel with Shelton Benjamin- Good segment with a brawl looking as real as they can get. Jericho says that he has been the IC champion, 7 times (record). Shelton says that his fist can create more hits than a Fozzy CD.
Kane/Lita Kiss- Ewwwwww.
Shawn Michaels Interview- Michaels wants Hulk Hogan to be his tag team partner at Backlash! Coolies.
Chris Benoit vs. Christian
Batista Interview- OK, we don’t expect a Steve Austin or Rock type interview but Batista was doing fine, we didn’t need Triple H to come down to “help out” this interview.
4/14/05 Smackdown in Chicago, IL
Booker T vs. Orlando Jordan
Torrie Wilson vs. Dawn Marie
Carlito’s Cabana with Rey Mysterio- Carlito debuts his new talk show and tries to stir things up between Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero until MNM makes their debut and attacks Mysterio while Carlito sits back and watches. Carlito is cool. MNM is Johnny Nitro and Joey Mercury with Melina as their manager. Melina is a hottie but with all these tits and asses running around, it’s only a matter of time before the WWE puts out a porno or becomes one itself.
JBL Int, Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio Int
John Cena/JBL Interview- Cena shows the new WWE Title belt. Cool looking title with a spinning WWE logo in the center.
Heidenreich vs. Scrub- After the match, Heidenreich says a poem about farting.

Viscera/Trish Stratus Int
Tag Team Title Match: The Heart Throbs vs. Tajiri and William Regal- Heart Throbs make their debut.
Triple H/Ric Flair Int, Muhammad Hassan Int
Muhammad Hassan vs. Shawn Michaels- Man, Hassan and Daivari are over, even if they use cheap 9/11 tricks. Hulk Hogan makes a save at the end which shocked no one but may still become a classic moment as Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels are in the ring together for the first time ever, I believe.
Chris Masters Segment- Masters proves that no one can get out of his “Masterlock” but putting it on a “fan”. Yeah nice, that sure shows us how tough he is. I guess if a fan can’t get out of his hold, no one can.
Simon Dean vs. Shelton Benjamin
Smackdown Rebound
Christian/Vince Interview- Another draft coming in a month.
Triple H Int
Triple H vs. Jim Ross- Horrible main event. Triple punches JR about 20 times but takes about 6 minutes to do so. Batista finally shows up to attack Triple but this segment sucked. Hopefully Triple H is drafted to Velocity so I don’t have to watch him anymore.
4/21/05 Smackdown in New York, NY (MSG)
Big Show vs. Booker T
Carlito’s Cabana with Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio- MNM challenge the tag team champions to a tag team title match. MNM should get over quickly.
Matt Morgan Int- Morgan returns, this time with a sta sta sta studder.
Orlando Jordan/Basham Brothers Int
Matt Morgan vs. Scrub
JBL/Kurt Angle Int
JBL and Kurt Angle vs. Big Show and Booker T
Heidenreich/Brooklyn Brawler Segment- Brawler basically says New York sucks, rips off his Yankees shirt revealing a Red Sox shirt and hat, and says he wants to now be known as the Boston Brawler! Great heat reaction from this.
Tag Team Title Match: MNM vs. Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio- MNM pick up the tag titles in their wrestling debut as Eddie and Rey argue after.
Orlando Jordan vs. John Cena- 2 weeks in a row now Smackdown has put on a better show than Raw. The draft will be interesting to see which big names make the switch.
4/25/05 Raw in United Kingdom
Batista/Triple H Interview- Batista cuts off Triple H 3 times during the interview.

Cruiserweight Title Match: Chavo Guerrero vs. Paul London
Sharmell/Booker T Int, Chavo/Eddie/Rey Mysterio Int
Tag Team Title Match: Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio vs. MNM- Eddie gets mad at Rey and leaves him to get beat down by the chocolate covered candies that melt in your mouth and not in your hands. That’s bull BTW because I was eating some the other day with about 10 in my hand and they slowly start to leave traces of their colored shell on my hands.
John Cena vs. Rene Dupree
Matt Morgan vs. Mikey Whiplash- Morgan has a neat looking finisher.
JBL/Big Show Int, John Cena Music Video Segment
Elimination Match: Big Show vs. JBL vs. Kurt Angle vs. Booker T- OMG, JBL is the number one contender and we will have another Wrestlemania Rematch. I’m shocked as this hit me totally by surprised *sarcasm off*.

Triple H/Eric Bischoff Int, Shelton Benjamin/Chris Jericho Int
IMO Chris Candido
Shelton Benjamin vs. Shawn Michaels- Awesome match between these two. I think this is their first singles match against each other but I’m not sure. Get these two guys on a ppv, please! The end of the match where Shelton jumps from the other side of the ring, right into a superkick was awesome.
Edge Int
Tag Team Title Match: La Resistance vs. Hurricane and Rosey
Smackdown Rebound
Chris Jericho vs. Edge- Nothing against Boston, but some of the people here were lame by chanting boring. This was a decent Raw match with two big names and some chanted boring? Either some of the Bostonians were spoiled with the Benjamin/Michaels match, or they’ve been attending too many Boston tea parties and spiking the drinks.
Chris Masters Segment
Triple H vs. Chris Benoit- Benoit wins and Triple H is out of the tournament!!

Orlando Jordan vs. Booker T
Sharmell/Kurt Angle Int
JBL/John Cena Interview- When Cena says that their match will be an “I Quit” match at Judgment Day, Bradshaw has one of the most stupidest looks on his face that I have ever seen on anyone. I can’t stand him.
Kurt Angle Segment
WWE in England Highlights
Eddie/Chavo Guerrero Int
Carlito vs. Hardcore Holly
John Cena Music Video- “Bad Bad Man”. I was looking forward to this but was let down a little but. Too much fighting and not enough seeing Cena actually rap the lyrics.

John Cena Music Video- “Bad Bad Man”.
Shawn Michaels Int
Edge vs. Shawn Michaels- Funny spot here when Michaels is coming down to the ring. He does his usually kneel with the fireworks but as the camera shows the crowd, it comes back and Michaels is laying down because one of his metals from his entrance gear gets caught in the ramp. He tries to get up but has a little trouble doing so, then laughs about it until the match starts.

Pillow Fight: Candice Michelle vs. Christy Hemme- After this waste of time segment, it leads to …
Viscera/Lilian Garcia Segment- Viscera hits on Lilian. I want to say I hate this and that it’s lame but I can’t. It’s not bad and neither was his singing.
Chris Jericho/Shelton Benjamin Int
Tag Team Title Match: Simon Dean and Maven vs. Hurricane and Rosey
Smackdown Rebound
Randy Orton/Vince Interview- Orton returns for a promo about the draft and even though he got a good reaction, he still kept his heel status until Vince comes out and bashes him. Vince also explains how the draft is going to work.
Kane vs. Edge- In a strange twist of fate ….. Lita screws (wow, puns all over the place) Kane and now is teaming up with Edge. They then make out on stage and somewhere, Matt Hardy is a little steamed I would think.

Steve Austin/Longest Yard Segment
ECW Rules: Chris Benoit vs. Tajiri
Batista/Ric Flair Int, Kane Interview
Maria/Viscera/Lilian/Coach Interview
World Heavyweight Title Match: Edge vs. Batista- No amount of cleavage from Lita was going to help Edge win the title tonight. After Ric Flair teases a face turn, he low blows the champion and here comes….guess who? It’s a surprise! Ready!??! HERE COME … Triple H. That’s when most people probably stopped watching and went to bed.

John Cena and Big Show vs. Carlito and Matt Morgan
6/6/05 Raw in St Louis, MO, (G)

Eric Bischoff Int
Highlight Reel with John Cena/Christian- Cena is Raw’s first pick in the draft. It’s kinda cool actually because it means new Main events, even though I’m not a huge Cena fan. Good move IMO but we’ll see how it works out.

Dudley Boys/Paul Heyman/Eric Bischoff Int
ECW/Eric Bischoff Segment- Big Brawl breaks out as several ECW stars including Sandman, Balls Mahoney, Axl Rotten, Rhyno, and others come down to brawl with Raw stars. This show hyped ECW more than the draft.
6/9/05 Smackdown in Kansas City, MO

Teddy Long/JBL/Chris Benoit Interview- Benoit returns to Smackdown and is Smackdown’s first pick of 2005. Not as big as Cena going to Raw but a big name with a resume nonetheless.

6/13/05 Raw in Binghamton, NY

Steve Austin/Muhammad Hassan Interview- “Stone Cold Court” they call it. Hassan complains about how he has been treated unfairly so Austin gives him the following match…
IC Title Match: Muhammad Hassan vs. Shelton Benjamin- Hassan tries to get a cheap win but Steve Austin doesn’t allow it and causes a DQ.
Eric Bischoff/Coach/Chris Jericho/Triple H Int- Can Triple H not see that he is hurting Raw by always being in the main event slot and getting title shots when he isn’t champion? I loved the line Paul Heyman said to JBL last night at the PPV, about how the only reason JBL was champion for a year was because Triple H didn’t feel like working Tuesdays. So true, isn’t it?
Masterlock Challenge with Sgt. Slaughter
Triple H/Batista Highlights- Who is actually going to buy the next PPV just because of this hell in a cell?
Christian and Tyson Tomko vs. Chris Jericho and John Cena- Cena wrestles on Raw for the first time … and I use the term “wrestles” very loosely. After several weeks of teasing a heel turn, Jericho does as he attacks Cena after the match.
Eric Bischoff/Christian/Chris Jericho/John Cena Int/Brawl
Diva Search Highlights
Viscera vs. Maven- Lilian Garcia walks out to the ring with Viscera.
Ric Flair/Triple H Int
Kane vs. Sylvan Grenier- After Kane wins, Lita, Edge, and Gene Snitsky come out to run smack on Kane.
Triple H/Ric Flair/Kurt Angle/Batista Interview- Angle is now on Raw!! Holy shit, one of my favorite Smackdown guys coming to Raw! Not to mention, Shawn Michaels returns to challenge Angle to a rematch. Then they start to brawl and the show ends… I finally want to see a brawl and they cut it short. Still, good segment.
6/17/05 Smackdown in Hershey, PA

Heidenreich/Divas/MNM Segment- They go with a chocolate bar/kisses segment here when MNM come and give Heidenreich the Snapshot.
JBL vs. Undertaker- Undertaker finally has a match. Good TV match when Randy Orton appears at the end, and gives Undertaker a RKO and then says that he (Orton) is the second draft pick for Smackdown.
6/20/05 Raw in Phoenix, AZ

John Cena/Muhammad Hassan/Eric Bischoff Interview
Eric Bischoff/Shelton Benjamin Interview
IC Title Match: Carlito vs. Shelton Benjamin- Holy sheet. Probably my two favorite Smackdown stars have come to Raw in the last two weeks. Now all we have to do is send Triple H to Smackdown and Raw will be perfect … almost. Carlito wins the IC title here on his Raw debut. “That’s cool” but I think everyone was starting to enjoy Shelton Benjamin as the IC champion.
Carlito Int- For those who don’t like Carlito coming to Raw and winning the IC title, I can’t agree with you. We shouldn’t always be able to predict when a title is going to change hands so the occasional surprise is always welcome.
Viscera vs. Simon Dean- Lilian Garcia gives a half-ass kiss to Viscera after the match.
Diva Search Highlights
Chris Jericho/Christian Interview- Christian cuts a good quick promo here and rips on Jericho. Let’s hope Christian isn’t leaving Raw.
Triple H/Batista/Hell in a Cell Highlights
Eric Bischoff/Kurt Angle Int
Edge/Lita Wedding- Now these two kiss like they mean it. When the “priest” asks if anyone objects, the music of Matt Hardy plays and the crowd goes crazy. Edge and Lita then laugh and said that they had to do it. Kane then comes out from under the ring to destroy the wedding and gives the priest a tombstone piledriver.
Kane Int, Christy Hemme Int
WWE Title Match: Muhammad Hassan vs. John Cena- Hassan finally gets pinned.
Diva Search Segment, Vengeance Music Card Video

John Cena/Shawn Michaels/Maria Int- Michaels and Cena together for the first time.
Kane/Lita Int
Masterlock Challenge with Tajiri
Carlito’s Cabana with Rob Van Dam- Wow, RVD on Raw now? Are they making Smackdown the next Heat or Velocity? Or the minor leagues? Raw has all my favorite old Smackdown guys now.
Ric Flair vs. Kurt Angle- Everyone’s favorite match of the night. No disrespect to Ric Flair, but is there anyone that Angle can’t make look good?
Diva Search/Viscera/Sgt. Slaughter Segment
Batista Int, Chris Jericho/Christian/Tyson Tomko Int
John Cena, Shawn Michaels, and Hulk Hogan vs. Chris Jericho, Christian, and Tyson Tomko- Past, present, and future. That’s Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and John Cena. Damn good show.

Michelle McCool vs. Melina
Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio Interview
JBL vs. Muhammad Hassan vs. Undertaker vs. Chris Benoit vs. Booker T vs. Christian- Christian goes to Smackdown but loses his first Smackdown match. JBL wins making him the number one contender to … Batista! Batista comes down after the 40+ minute match and is the last Smackdown pick. Smackdown now has a champion.
7/4/05 Raw in Sacramento, CA

Carlito’s Cabana with Hulk Hogan/Kurt Angle- Carlito wants some action with Hogan’s daughter but Hogan doesn’t like it and attacks him until Shawn Michaels evens the sides.

Highlight Reel with John Cena
Bootcamp Diva Search Segment- D – U – M – B.
Val Venis vs. Rene Dupree
Carlito/Kurt Angle Int
Kurt Angle and Carlito vs. Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan- If it wasn’t for the shocking ending, this would have been a forgettable Raw. Instead, Shawn Michaels superkicks Hogan after the match and turns heel. He hasn’t been a heel since 1999 so this is a huge moment and one that people will always remember. I will always remember it as the show that I couldn’t go to, because my friends were too cheap!!
7/7/05 Smackdown in Sacramento, CA

JBL/BWO Interview- BWO return but now mock the Cabinet’s characters. Blue Meanie wants a match with JBL.
Chris Benoit vs. Booker T- Benoit wins and is the number one contender to the US title.
Eddie Guerrero/Rey Mysterio Int
Muhammad Hassan/Teddy Long Int
JBL vs. Blue Meanie
Tag Team Title Match: Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero vs. MNM
Raw Rebound, Christian Int
Matt Morgan vs. William Regal- Match never happens because the Mexicools come out to attack Matt Morgan (who just got fired 2 days after this show was taped).
Undertaker vs. Daivari- After the match, Muhammad Hassan sends what people on the ‘net are calling “terrorists” into the ring to assault the Undertaker. People everywhere are bothered by this angle, especially because of the Terrorist attacks in London earlier today. WWE could have edited this out and should have known that people would be sensitive to something like right now. But do you think Vince and the WWE cares? Hell no. I bet if a wrestler died at a ppv, they wouldn’t even stop the show… Oh wait… NVM.
Batista vs. Christian- Match was almost a squash match to me with Batista going over easily in a longer then needed match. Why is this a non-title match if Christian is going to lose anyways?
7/11/05 Raw in East Rutherford, NJ

Carlito/Chris Jericho/Rowdy Roddy Piper Interview- All three battle for talk show supremacy and the chance to interview Shawn Michaels.
Chris Masters vs. Tajiri
Edge/Lita/Gene Snitsky Int- Snitsky has a foot fetish and makes some nasty noises while Edge waves Lita’s feet in Snitsky’s face.
IC Title Match: Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito- Carlito finally has a good match but keeps his title when he gets himself counted out. Good way to win and get some heel heat.
John Cena/Chris Jericho/Eric Bischoff Interview- Jericho vs. Cena at SummerSlam
Diva Search Segment- This second Diva search is actually worse then the first one.
Kurt Angle Invitational- Angle faces Matt Striker who is a former teacher so he has an apple on his tights. The dreaded teacher gimmick will strike (no pun intended) fear in the hearts of students everywhere.
Edge/Kane/Matt Hardy Segment- Matt Hardy attacks Edge backstage! WOW, Hardy has resigned? I guess money will make anyone sell out but I don’t blame him.
Edge vs. Kane- Again, Matt Hardy comes in to attack Edge as the WWE and everyone involved make it look as real as possible, like Hardy invaded out of nowhere. Matt throws out some potty words to show how angry he is.
Piper’s Pit with Shawn Michaels- Michaels says that he superkicked Hogan because he wants to challenge him and prove that he is better or something like that. A bit of a letdown from last week as I’m really hoping this heel turn by Michaels sparks something more interesting then Hogan vs. Michaels at SummerSlam
7/14/05 Smackdown in Worcester, MA

Eddie Guerrero Interview- Eddie is stopped by his family and doesn’t reveal the dreaded secret… yet.
Eddie Guerrero/Hardcore Holly Segment
Mexicools vs. Scotty Too Hotty, Funaki, and Paul London- Juvi hits is trademark 450 splash but his knee nails London in the side of the head. You can see Juvi checking on him right after he pins him.
Candice Michelle/Christian/Booker T Int, Batista Int, Melina/Torrie Wilson Int
MNM/Heidenreich/Animal Segment- I can’t believe this Heidenreich character is getting over but it is. He and Animal are teaming up at the next ppv for a tag team title match.
Eddie Guerrero vs. Hardcore Holly
Undertaker Segment- Undertaker destroys some dude who is speaking on behalf of Muhammad Hassan.
Christian vs. Booker T
Great American Bash Video Card

Kerwin White/Eric Bischoff/Chris Jericho Int
Shawn Michaels Int
Masterlock Challenge with Rosey/Big Show- So we have this, and the Diva search to sit through huh? Plus the Kurt Angle Invitational? 3 segments of Raw every week to go to the bathroom.

7/25/05 Raw in Cleveland, OH

Kurt Angle Invitational with Eugene- Eugene returns and lasts over 3 minutes with Angle, earning him Angle’s Olympic medals.
John Cena/Eric Bischoff Int
Heart Throbs and A Midget vs. Viscera and a Midget- This midget thing was insanely stupid. Bringing in “the little people” stopped being funny after the 345th time they did it.
Lord Alfred Hayes Video- RIP.
Shelton Benjamin/Eric Bischoff Int, Maria/Chris Jericho Int
John Cena Performs Bad Bad Man- Was supposed to be a battle of the band, Cena vs. Fozzy but Chris Jericho comes out and backs out. No, it’s ok. He did us a favor.
Eric Bischoff/Carlito Int
Shawn Michaels Interview- Thank You! This should have happened the week following Michaels superkicking Hogan. Michaels cuts one of those new found “Shoot interview” type things, even though it’s something ECW figured out tons of years ago, that we actually like those kinds of interviews. Michaels bashes Hogan but not everyone was booing him, probably because everyone agreed with what he was saying about “the old fossil”.
Chris Masters and Gene Snitsky vs. Shelton Benjamin- Benjamin can’t break the Masterlock, put on by Payton Manning (on steroids).
Diva Search Segment- Hot dog eating contest… If they want us to care, why not just have them come out topless and let us vote?? Otherwise, this is all so pointless because no one cares. Just cut everyone but Layla and the girl to her left every time and save us this 6-8 weeks of pointlessness.
Stretcher Match: Kane vs. Edge- Edge wins and then Matt Hardy attacks Edge again. OK, that’s 3 weeks in a row now. Do they have anything else that they can have Matt Hardy do?
Kane/Lita Segment, Hulk Hogan Tribute Video
John Cena vs. Carlito- Chris Jericho is the referee and helps Carlito win the match. I agree with most people though, Raw has been loosing steam in the past few weeks. It’s the same show every week. Kurt Angle invitational. Chris Master’s Masterlock Segment, Diva Search bathroom break segment, Matt Hardy attacks Edge (like security is that weak that he can “break in” every time), etc etc. Come on guys, let’s step it up and think of something new.
7/28/05 Smackdown in Rochester, NY

Teddy Long/JBL Interview
Christian and Orlando Jordan vs. Booker T and Chris Benoit
Animal/Heidenreich Int
Animal and Heidenreich vs. Scrub s
MNM Int- Melina brings in some blonde with really huge breasts to help them. Then as the girls walk out, Mercury asks Nitro, “would you?” Lol funny, quote of the night.
Rey Mysterio/Eddie Guerrero Interview- Eddie says that Dominic is Eddie’s son, not Rey’s. Like no one saw that one coming.
Melina vs. Torrie Wilson- Match was no good but Tazz was talking about Jillian’s face dis-figuration and asking if it was filled with puss or if it was hairy. Michael Cole was getting grossed out but I have to admit, Tazz was making it sound disgusting.
William Regal/Scotty Too Hotty/Mexicools Segment/Brawl
Raw Rebound
Undertaker vs. JBL- Randy Orton comes in to give the Undertaker the RKO, allowing JBL to get the pinfall and a title shot at SummerSlam.

Eugene Invitational with Tatanka
Kurt Angle Int, Chris Jericho/Carlito Int
Vince/Matt Hardy Interview- Matt Hardy explains the backstage situation with him, Edge, and Lita but he never explains that he was fired by Vince, then rehired. I guess only to make Vince look better but we all know how it went down.
Kerwin White/Vince Int
Val Venis vs. Rob Conway- New ring outfit and entrance music for Conway. You know what they say, you can polish a turd but in the end …
Shawn Michaels Segment- Hilarious segment with Michaels impersonating Hogan. OK, who hasn’t done a Hogan impersonation but this was different than the others by far, in my opinion. I won’t get into detail but it’s surely worth watching.
John Cena/Carlito/Chris Jericho Last Week Highlights

Matt Hardy vs. Gene Snitsky
Matt Hardy/Edge Brawl
John Cena Right Now Music Video
Face to Face Interview with Shawn Michaels and Hulk Hogan- If anyone gives a damn about this match, it’s because of the great promos by Shawn Michaels. Hogan mentions Bret Hart and of course we get “You Screwed Bret” chants.

Eugene/Renee Dupree/Kurt Angle Segment/Brawl
Lita/Edge/Matt Hardy Highlights
Chris Jericho/Eric Bischoff/Carlito Int
Chris Jericho and Carlito vs. John Cena
Diva Search Segment- Ashley beats out Layla to win the contest. Couldn’t we save 6 weeks or so of this crap and just make these two the finalists to begin with like I said would happen way back when? But good, now it’s over, let’s move on. Oh, and Ashley cheated by the why with wearing a dress that had her boobs falling out so she could get last minute votes.

8/22/05 Raw in Hampton, VA, Night After SummerSlam

Shawn Michaels/Chris Masters Interview/Brawl- Michaels appears to be heading back to the familiar face role but he still has the heelish type interviews. I would prefer the heel role but if he keeps these types of promos, then it doesn’t matter to me because he continues to show that he is the best right now, and I have no clue who is 2nd. Masters tries to get some rub from Michaels.
Chris Jericho/Eric Bischoff
Kurt Angle vs. Shelton Benjamin- Wow, where did this come from? They could have sold it on ppv but we got a good one for free here.
Gene Snitsky/Maria/Big Show Int
Matt Hardy vs. Rob Conway- WTF?? Hardy came back to job to Edge and then this jobber?? Edge then comes in to beat Matt up some more.
Carlito’s Cabana with Ric Flair
Big Show vs. Gene Snitsky
Eric Bischoff/John Cena Int
Lance Cade/Trevor Murdoch Promo
Torrie Wilson/Candice Michelle/Ashley Interview/Segment- OK, Torrie Wilson and Candice Michelle are now on Raw but turn heel by attacking Ashley but the question is, who cares? The crowd is quite here.

Johnny Nitro vs. Heidenreich
Raw Rebound, Chris Benoit Int
Christian and Booker T vs. Mexicools
Teddy Long/Stacy Keibler/Christy Hemme Segment
Mr. Kennedy vs. Funaki- Ken Kennedy wins his Smackdown debut with a nice finisher off the top rope and then announces himself as the winner. On my “Make it or Flake” scale for beginners with 10 being Make it, I’d give him a 7. He has more potential then the guys Smackdown debuted around this time last year.
JBL, Orlando Jordan, and Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit, Rey Mysterio, and Batista
8/29/05 Raw in Tampa, FL

Carlito’s Cabana with Shawn Michaels/Chris Masters- The young guys attack Michaels until Ric Flair shows up and helps out Shawn.
Eric Bischoff/Chris Masters/Carlito Int
Big Show vs. 2 Scrubs
Torrie Wilson/Candice Michelle/Ashley/Victoria Segment- Basically, all the girls gang up on Ashley and Victoria beats her in a 30 second match. I gave the Diva search a lot of crap BUT, I do like Ashley and think she could be something that Christy Hemme will not be and that’s a somebody that fans actually care about.
Lance Cade/Trevor Murdoch Promo- Lance Cade goes Waylon Mercy and finishes the promo off with , “know what ah mean?” Yes Lance Mercy, we do know what you mean. What your brother Waylon meant when he said that phrase was, I suck and I’m only going to have a month long WWF career. Now what YOU might mean Lance Mercy, brother of Waylon, is you might make it a couple of more months but not much longer and if you do, you’ll be stuck in jobber land. How ya like that, Lance Mercy? Oh, and say hi to your brother for us.
Edge/Alter bridge Int- Too bad Alter bridge didn’t get interviewed because Mark Emotion is the guitar king as far as I am concerned. Edge has been rippin Matt Hardy hard recently.
Matt Hardy/Lita Segment- Lita unzips her top showing massive cleavage and I have to say, even though I think Lita has a fairly unattractive face, she has an incredible looking rack!
Ric Flair/Shawn Michaels Segment- Brief segment showing Flair covered in blood as it appears someone attacked him backstage.
Street Fight: Edge vs. Matt Hardy- Really physical match, best street fight on Raw in a long long time. Matt Hardy slams Edge off the ramp and they use up about 15 minutes of the show to sell the injuries.
John Cena/Kurt Angle Interview/Brawl
Tyson Tomko vs. Rosey- You know when the tag team champions get torn apart by Tyson Tomko, that the WWE is shouting to us that they have the worst tag team division that they have EVER had.
Shawn Michaels vs. Carlito and Chris Masters- Ric Flair finally shows up but too little too late.

Women’s Title Match: Torrie Wilson vs. Trish Stratus
Trevor Murdoch vs. Hurricane
Edge/Eric Bischoff Int- In two weeks, Hardy vs. Edge in a ladder match. Winner gets the money in the bank contract and loser has to leave Raw. So if you want to see Matt Hardy after Raw Homecoming in 2 weeks, be sure to catch Smackdown on Friday Nights @ 8pm.
Tyson Tomko vs. Eddie Craven- Sad, but they are pushing Tomko (are at least trying to).

New LOD vs. 2 Scrubs
Sylvan/Bob Holly Int
Sylvan Grenier vs. Bob Holly
Randy/Bob Orton/Undertaker Interview/Segment
Ken Kennedy vs. Rey Mysterio- Kennedy picks up the win against Mysterio and is looking good on Smackdown. I think the only thing that will hold him down is his size (Vince likes big men) but he is no scrub in the ring like most new people and he has very good mic skills.
Raw Rebound, Teddy Long/Palmer Cannon Int, Eddie Guerrero Int
Simon Dean vs. Bobby Lashley- For no hype, Lashley gets a pretty good reaction on his WWE debut.
US Title Match: Orlando Jordan vs. Chris Benoit
Batista/Eddie Guerrero Int
MNM vs. Eddie Guerrero and Batista
9/26/05 Raw in Waco, TX, Final Raw on Spike TV (old TNN)

Vince/Kurt Angle/Shawn Michaels Interview- Vince tries to tell us that this is the final Raw on Spike TV and that they are moving back home to the USA channel but Spike TV censors out the mentioning of the USA network. Classy yet they advertise TNA during Raw’s broadcast the last month. Shawn Michaels does some more funny faces here.
Women’s Title Match: Victoria vs. Trish Stratus
Street Fight: Big Show vs. Gene Snitsky- Big Show’s smile that he wears on his way to the ring is way too big. I suppose if he was on his way to have sex with Eva Longoria then I could understand but just to wrestle Snitsky?
Ric Flair Int- Flair shows a highlight video of his best friend, Triple H, who comes back next week.
John Cena/Eric Bischoff Int
Shelton Benjamin vs. Kerwin White- Kerwin debuts his new caddy, Nick Nemeth.

Raw Highlight Video
Piper’s Pit with Mick Foley/Randy Orton- The Ortons interrupt the interview and then attack both of the “legends”.
30 minute Iron Man Match: Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels- Great match of course but it ends at 2 scores apiece.
Vince/Eric Bischoff Int
Vince/Steve Austin/McMahon Family interview/Segment- Austin has lost a lot of weight. Just as this segment was getting lame, Austin stuns the family one at a time. The “Stunner” on Linda was horrible; Linda basically just falls down as Austin is trying to grab her.
Ladder Match: Edge vs. Matt Hardy- Edge wins surprising no one and Matt Hardy is gone from Raw.
Carlito and Chris Masters vs. Ric Flair and Triple H- Triple turns on Flair after the match.
Triple H/Ric Flair Brawl- More like a Triple H assault on Flair.
WWE Legends/Rob Conway Interview- Many legends like Arn Anderson, Dusty Rhodes, Ted Dibiase, Jim Duggan, Jimmy Superfly Snuka, and so many others are in the ring until Conway comes down to get beat up.
Bra and Panties Match: Victoria, Torrie Wilson, and Candice Michelle vs. Ashley and Trish Stratus

Doink vs. Rob Conway
Ric Flair/Triple H Last Week Highlights
Carlito’s Cabana with Kurt Angle/Shawn Michaels/Big Show/Edge/John Cena- Everyone wants a title shot. John Cena finally rips on everyone with one of his flows, something that made him big to begin with. He needs to do it more often to really keep him from getting boring.
Chris Masters vs. Tajiri
Triple H Segment- Triple H walks backstage and some of the stars are upset with him for attacking Flair. Good segment as we see him together with John Cena for the first time.
Triple H Interview- Now he explains why he attacked Ric Flair.
Women’s Title Match: Victoria vs. Trish Stratus- Mickie James makes her debut after the match to attack Victoria. She’s hot, has a big rack, and looks athletic; basically what the WWE is looking for in their Divas these days.
Carlito, Kurt Angle, Edge vs. Shawn Michaels, Big Show, and John Cena
McMahons/Raw Announcers Interview/Segment- The McMahons fire Jim Ross and Linda kinda sticks her leg out half-assed and JR falls down like he was kicked in the balls. So last week, she just falls down instead of actually taking the stunner, this week she can barely get her foot up to JR’s crotch… so what’s next week? Will she attempt a people’s elbow but fall on her ass as soon as she finds the ropes? Memo to Linda, don’t try any physical activities because the “BORING” tag is already on you whenever you pick up a mic; don’t bury yourself even further or you’ll become Raw’s ultimate channel changer, with that title currently held by Rob Conway.

Ortons/Rowdy Roddy Piper Int, Simon Dean/Juniors Int/Segment
Short Sleeve Sampson vs. Pitbull Patterson- This midget wrestling was lame in 97 and is lame in 05. It’s even worse when the referee Nick Patrick notices that he isn’t in the right position for one of the midgets to jump off him so Patrick just falls down out of no where.
Booker T/Sharmell/Chris Benoit Interview- Not that we couldn’t see this happening as the segment went on but Booker T turns heel.

Ric Flair Interview
Rob Conway vs. Eugene- Jimmy Snuka, Kamala, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and Jerry Lawler all come to the ring at the end.
Todd Grisham/Mick Foley Int- Grisham actually does something worth mentioning here by dressing and sounding like Ol’ time Cub announcer Harry Carey.
Maria/Eric Bischoff Int
Carlito/Mick Foley Interview- Foley gives us a flash from the past as he does interviews from all 3 of his old characters with the Mankind interview sounding the best. He looks exactly the same behind that mask.
Coach/Vince/Funaki/Batista Interview/Segment- Steve Austin is out of the match tomorrow at the ppv and Batista is in. Coach has back up though with Goldust and Vader at his side. Yes, you read those names right as they all 3 attack Batista. Vader falls down as he exits the ring, which is pretty funny.
Viscera vs. Triple H

Bobby Lashley vs. Orlando Jordan
Edge/Lita/Teddy Long Int
Eddie Guerrero vs. Ken Kennedy- Classic Eddie as he fakes a chair shot to get Kennedy DQ’d as Eddie would win his last match. I wrote this about a week later after Eddie has passed and I still can’t believe he is gone and this was his final match. It’s something that I would like to forget but I can’t. I’m too hardcore of a wrestling fan and a great piece of that is gone, which makes me feel a little incomplete right now and possibly forever as has the loss of Owen. I still haven’t forgotten Owen, especially every time I pop in a tape and see him and I’m sure I will feel the same every time I see Eddie on TV. Gone but not forgotten.

Edge then gets in Michael Hayes’ face and Hayes fires back with some shots too. They then brawl but this was a very good segment. I love the “shooting” stuff in wrestling and I think it’s starting to catch on and hopefully, Edge’s new talk show will have plenty of it.
Tajiri vs. Triple H
Shawn Michaels and Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito and Kurt Angle- Is Shelton turning heel? He needs something to get him going, he is a very talented wrestler.

Vince/Shawn Michaels Interview- Starts out to be a segment where Vince reviews Bret’s DVD but then Michaels comes out and asks Vince to move on.

That’s actually a good thing.
