Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis, IN
- No fireworks - we start with the Rock's entrance
- Big reaction and positive as he enters.
- Rock's completely shaved his head.
- He also has a very large belt buckle
- And a big tattoo on his left arm
- There are two crates on the stage, but as a main eventer, the Rock
pays no attention to angles like that.
- The crowd does start to chant Hogan as Rock poses on the corner
- a few boos but either they aren't miced well or it's not as
present as Cole's making it sound.
- You do hear them better when they cut out the Rock's music, but
there's also a good Rock chant.
- Rock milks the reactions for a while, teasing the opening.
- Director makes sure to get shots of any pro-Hogan/anti-Rock signs they
- By just showing the anti-Rock signs, it comes across as too
- Rock: "Finally...[boos - looks at crowd and stops, teases it
again and is taken aback, tries again] Finally [pauses for reaction one
more, doesn't like the boos, asks for a moment] the Rock said Finally
[boos - crowd chants along the next part] the Rock has come back to
Indianaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...aaaaaaaaa who gives a crap! [boos]"
- Rock assures us that he meant "who gives a crap about what the
Rock has to say"
- Loud Hogan chant.
- Rock says he was going to do his old routine, but has a feeling that
they don't want to hear that tonight.
- In fact, he's got the feeling that they don't want to hear what the
Rock has to say.
- Rock thinks he might have actually heard people boo!
- Rock says he's hearing a lot of different chants, and you can cheer
the Rock or you can boo the Rock, because he shall remain electrifying.
- There's a "YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYboooooooooooooo" noise
coming from the crowd.
- He doesn't get why they want to boo him.
- The Rock is here because of the people - he's focused and committed to
the people and this company and oh wait a cell call.
- The Rock shushes the crowd so he can talk to his personal assistant.
- Rock tells the guy on the phone that he's definitely leaving
tonight - he doesn't want to spend a night with all these hicks.

know what this means?

- The boos clearly win out this time.
- Rock is a little upset.
- Rock says that's fine - it's their decision.
- Rock still wants to know why they're booing out - because he sold out?
- Cheers seem to indicate yes.
- Rock thinks of it as trying to be successful.
- Because he's got too big of a head?
- Rock says, at No Way Out, they're going to get the Rock they want.
- Rock starts rhyming, hitting on "make more money in one day
than you make a year" and beating Hogan.
- This starts another Hogan chant.
- Cole reminds us for the fifth time that Hogan will be here
- Rock: "This can't be Hogan, Rocky - it comes out Rogan, that
- Rock promises to confront Hogan later on and tell him exactly what
he's going to do to him at No Way Out.
- "If you smell what the Rock - whoa whoa whoa whoa you people made
up your mind, you made up your decision, sing-a-long with the Rock is
OVER! Oh, it's over - I'm sorry baby, but it's over, out the window, out
the window. What, you boo the Rock for ten minutes, and all of a sudden,
yea, 'if you smell' no no no no no that ain't happening. What, are you a
bunch of sheep. Have some self respect for [bleep] sakes. The Rock and
only the Rock says this - is cooking.
- Tazz notes that the Rock has more to say in WWE magazine, but Cole's
had his fill.
- Tale of the Tape for Brock Lesnar and Kurt Angle
- Cole says this may be the most anticipated match in the WWE.
- Now that the Rock's not here, let's mention those crates.
- Chris Benoit (Edmonton, AB, 229 pounds) vs A-Train (Boston, MA, 350
- Benoit, not being the Rock, takes a glance at the crates.
- Plug for Sunday Night Heat being moved to TNN this week
- Rey Mysterio vs TBA is your pre-PPV Heat match.
- You know, if Eddie's not doing anything, there could be worse ways
to kill time.
- This is a rematch from last week.
- A-Train wastes no time pushing Benoit in a corner to get this started.
- Knees to the midsection, and then right hands. And then knee.s
- Corner whip, choo choo corner splash is side steppeed.
- Benoit's chops again have little effect on A-Train.
- A-Train pushes him down, then hits a running clothesline.
- Benoit pushed in the corner, set up on the middle rope
- A-Train lifts him up and off, so Benoit's being held in a cradle
vertical suplex position, then drops to his knees.
- Elevated cradle neck breaker is the technical name, but it's not
much good if you haven't seen it.
- I think of it as Damien's neckbreaker, really. A-Train's pulled
out a couple times before
- A-Train covers one two Benoit gets the bottom rope.
- A-Train pulls Benoit into the center of the ring as we watch the
- A-train slaps Benoit on the mat a few times, then picks him up to his
feet with the double choke
- "You ain't nothing, you understand me?"
- Derailer - but Benoit slips out and over for the armbar takedown into
- A-Train stands up out of it quickly, picking Benoit up in a fireman's
- But Benoit just slides down the other side and reapplies the
- A-Train moves towards the ropes, but he moved the confrontation to the
middle and has a long way ago.
- A-Train looks as if he's going to tap, but pulls back and is able to
stand up and get loose a bit
- Benoit manages to get a waistlock - German Suplex, up for another but
A-Train back elbows out.
- Benoit's chop has no effect, A-Train's knee works.
- Whip, no quick reverse into an inside cradle one two three - Benoit
- Crowd and A-Train are surprised this was that quick.
- Cole tries to build credit for A-Train thru his ability to counter the
Crossface so well, but it rings hollow
- This match wasn't nearly as good as last week's, obviously
- A-Train and Benoit gave "this isn't over reaction"
- I guess they're already setting up a WM pairing?
- While kinda doing nothing towards the six man tag.
- SmackDown #1 Announcer Funaki tries to get a word from the Rock
- Sadly, the Rock's security won't let him get by - the Rock is giving
- Rikishi (350 pounds) vs Johnny Stamboli (Brooklyn, NY, 250 pounds,
w/Nunzio, Chuck Palumbo and that hat)
- Rikishi looks at the boxes, yes.
- The Italians aren't as interested in them.
- They've already shot a new entrance video for this group.
- It involves much dramatic walking, and the one week of them being
- Mike Sparks cuts off Nunzio and Chuck, while Rikishi gets the better
of Johnny on the outside.
- Nunzio and Chuck end up getting sent to the back.
- Rikishi has the early advantage.
- Cole says "Johnny 'the Bull' Stamboli" so the nickname
is still around.
- A headbutt works on Rikishi.
- Johnny press slams Rikishi!
- That was quite impressive.
- It took a lot out of Johnny though.
- While we're watching a replay, Johnny botches the leap to the top
- He couldn't get his balance and slipped
- It's half hidden, but on a taped show, why didn't they just go to
a full screen replay and pick up after the mess up?
- Top rope legdrop gets one two no.
- Stamboli with corner shoulders.
- He ends up running into Rikishi punches, though.
- Samoan Drop, waiting for Johnny to get back up, thrust kick. One two
three - Rikishi takes it (1:47)
- I wonder if the non-finishers is a trend.
- Chuck runs in post match but has no effect.
- Nunzio jumps into a goozle.
- Rikishi loads him up into a Samoan drop, but Chuck makes the save with
a Jungle Kick.
- Now, 3 on 1, they take turns beating him.
- Nunzio makes a big show of taking off his jacket and putting it over
Rikishi's head to punch him.
- Backstage, Charlie Haas talks up Kurt while Shelton and Angle warm up
- Angle stops to talk up his match against Brock later.
- As we come back from break, Cole informs us that Chavo and Eddie
are hanging out in Beverly Hills
- Cole says they're a little out of their element.
- We get a (WWE patented) wacky vignette
- "They're Los Guerreros - they Lie, Steal and Cheat!"
- "Hey, doesn't this look familiar?" "Didn't we steal
a car around here one time?
- Chavo and Eddie butter up a women who's pushing a baby carriage
- You know, they aren't good about waiting till they're out of a
hearing range to talk about someone, but it doesn't come back to
haunt them this time.
- The joke is that while Eddie steals the wallet and watch, Chavo
gets the baby's bottle - because that was the only thing left.
- "If you're not cheating, you're not rising.
- Announcers sell them as faces, so that was just weird.
- Rey Mysterio (San Diego, 175 pounds, 2) and WWE Cruiserweight Champion
Thug Life Billy Kidman (Allentown, PA, 215 pounds, 1) vs Matt Hardy (Version
One) & Shannon Moore (415 pounds combined, UR/10)
- You know, it's about time Rey and Kidman defended the WCW
Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles!
- Last Title Match: 03/26/01
- This is your weekly sign that I desperately need a life.
- Matt Facts: Matt is miserable when dieting and Matt fins Shannon very
hard to teach.
- Last time we heard, Shannon weighs 195 - which means Matt must've made
- Sure enough, we see that earlier today he made weight - though it
- Thank god for pixilation.
- Shannon does not enjoy the post weigh-in hug.
- Anyway, #1 and #2 vs #Last and #unranked - I think I know which
way Vegas would go on this one.
- Rey and Shannon to start.
- While Shannon is wearing the normal black/red outfit of late,
Rey's wearing that ugly mustard colored outfit of his.
- But then, I'm not partial to mustard colored outfits.

him with a kick.

shoulder to the midsection

tag to Matt.
- Matt runs and swings, but his punch is blocked and Kidman hits many of

punch him, then turns back into the Side Effect.
- Matt doesn't cover, opting for punches to the head instead.
- Slam, off the ropes, elbow drop. One two NO.

- Up to their feet, with Kidman punching his way out.
- Whip, quick reverse into Twist - but Kidman pushes him off into the
ropes, and Matt bounces back into a dropkick.

which probably makes Hardcore Holly mad.
- Both men are down but Kidman is much closer.
- Tag to Rey, who comes in with a springboard Thesz Press on Matt.

- Whip for Matt, reversed, Rey ducks the clotheslines and hits a

the back. Inverted suplex in, but Rey lands on his feet.

instead! One two NO!

- While Shannon charges Rey on the apron, Brian is finally over to make
the count - one two NO!
- Rey pulls Shannon out of the ring and to the floor as Matt slams
- Second rope, yelling, but Kidman pops up and punches Matt low. Lots of
punches by Kidman.
- Kidman turns away from Matt - to springboard Rey into a running 'rana!
- Rey had a problem getting him over for a second, but smartly
grabbing the top rope for more leverage.
- He might always do that, but that's the first time I've noticed it
- Kidman drags Matt into position and starts to go up, but is
momentarily detained by Shannon - one punch to take care of that.
- Kidman goes back in - to give Rey a little lift on a suicide pescado
to take out Shannon
- But Matt's back up - Twist of Fate! One two three! (5:02)
- NEW CHAMPIONS! GIVE THEM THEIR BELTS!

Shannon gets beat up to the point of distraction, and Matt swoops in for
- Earlier This Week: Michael Cole talks to Nathan Jones.
- Nathan reminds us that he's a reformed criminal.
- He'll be on SmackDown next week.
- Nathan's goal is to be the next WWE Champion.
- But first - he's got some unfinshed business "with the biggest
dog in the yard."
- And then he chokes Michael Cole
- Cole gives a look as if to say "Mick Foley did this a lot
better with JR."
- I think he's doing his crazy guy act here. It's all in the creepy
- The crates are coming to the ring. It is near the top of the hour, after
all. Undertaker is walking.
- Recap of the Paul Heyman/Undertaker feud.
- Theoretically, Big Show's involved. But not in any of these clips.
- Undertaker comes to the ring
- We cut out Paul this week, so this is improved already.
- Cole categorizes this as "mind games" instead of "quite
- Undertaker opens the smaller of the two crates first, and finds a
- Tazz says "A little dog for the Big Dog" the same time I
- We get a "awwwwwww" from the crowd or the heat machine.
- Undertaker hands off the dog to a production person.
- Undertaker eyes the Big Show sized box.
- Kick to the box (breaking the plywood) and pushing part of the door
frame into the box-
- Big Show is quick (for him) into the ring, attacking Undertaker
with a clothesline.
- He must've come from the crowd.
- Somehow, Undertaker thought to turn around and saw the Big Show at
the last second.
- They time this for the top of the hour almost on the dot.
- Show punches and throws him into the box. And swears some.
- Choke slam does not break the ring.
- Play his music.
- Replay of the attack, then Big Show talking trash and leaving in a limo.
- Torrie Wilson vs Nidia (w/Jamie Noble) in a Paddle on a Pole match
- What the HECK
- First one to get the paddle wins, and then they get to use it.
- Why don't the women have hometowns?
- Some of 'em do on the RAW side, but not here.
- Replay of the unsuccessful 2 on 1 from last week, with Torrie spanking
Nidia. Logical progression to this.
- This is really an extended plug for Girls Gone Wild and Playboy.
- Torrie's outfit is very very pink.
- Clothesline for Nidia, snap suplex for Nidia, Dawn Marie gets a
shot for showing up on the apron, but Jamie puts and end to Torrie's run
with a powerslam.
- Torrie did not get all the way around there and got spiked on her
- Nidia climbs up and gets the paddle. (1:49)
- There's the paddle shot. Jamie helpfully comes in to hold Torrie for
- Out to make the save is - SmackDown #1 Announcer Funaki? Okay.
- I guess Kidman was too tired from his match?
- I guess Funaki gave up on trying to get that interview?
- This does explain that vignette on Velocity a
few weeks back where Noble threatened Funaki
- Though I'm guessing that was accidental.
- Clotheslines and right hands for Jamie.
- Inverted atomic drop, and a slingshot takes Noble to the floor.
- Funaki helps Torrie up as the heel trio walks off.
- I guess this sets up Funaki/Torrie vs Noble/Nidia down the road.
- I'd imagine they'd try Dawn/Nidia vs Torrie/??? if they had one
more woman on this show.

- Rock's people say he doesn't want to hear what Hogan has to say.

talking to cut him off with his music.

truck, I bet they could get along.

because of the Rock.
