Sunday Night Heat Match
Batista def. Maven via Pinfall (3:44)
Notes: Maven was the sacrificial lamb served up to the monster of Evolution.

Match #1 - WWE World Tag Team Championship
Chris Benoit
& Edge

def. "La Resistance"
(Sylvan Grenier & Rob Conway)
via DQ (10:13)
Notes: Grenier was in the Crossface when Kane decided to make an appearance. He gave Benoit and Edge a big boot to their respective kissers, and then gave Benoit a chokeslam. I don't like it when the same guy has to wrestle in two different matches on the same card. Sounds like the card is kind of weak.

Match #2
Chris Jericho def. Tyson Tomko
w/Trish Stratus
via Pinfall (8:04)
Notes: The ink-covered Tomko knocked Trish off the apron, giving Y2J an opening to finish him off. Y2J did the job with relative ease.

Match #3 - WWE Intercontinental Championship
Randy Orton
def. Shelton Benjamin
via Pinfall (15:04)
Notes: Randy cut a promo in the back, but ended up in the ring to show the crowd what greatness really looked like. Benjamin entered to throw his two cents in, and the match began. There were some "Randy" chants going on, so this guy does have his fans out there. Eventually, "Naitch" came down to ringside to get a better view of the match. At one point Flair had to put Orton's foot on the rope while Benjamin went for the cover. This set off Shelton, who dragged Flair into the ring and beat down both Orton and Flair. Shelton then had the audacity to put the Figure-Four on Slick Ric! He then managed to get a near-fall on Orton by rolling him up in a small package while still applying said Figure-Four. But in the end, Naitch was tossed out, Shelton came off the top rope, and Randy rolled through and made the pin. Nice match.

Match #4 - WWE Women's Championship - Fatal Four-Way Match
Trish Stratus
w/Tyson Tomko
def. Victoria
Gail Kim

via Pinfall (4:44)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Before the match, Bischoff had Mr. Matt Hardy removed from the building. And Victoria came out to that lame dance music. What happened? She was much better as the psycho. Lita laid out Gail with a tremendous DDT, but Trish was the one who capitalized by rolling up Lita.

Match #5
Eugene def. Jonathan Coachman via Pinfall (7:39)
Notes: Eugene picked up the win, despite interference from Garrison Cade. But before Cade came out, Coach brought out a lady holding a tray of cookies. That distracted Eugene, but he still recovered. Cade came down and tore up a stuffed animal that Eugene had taken from a lady at ringside, and also attempted to hold Eugene so Coach could go for the knockout blow. Needless to say, Eugene dodged the blow, Cade went flying, and one Rock Bottom later, Coach fell to 2-1 on pay-per-view. William Regal was prevented from being at ringside, so he had to leave Eugene at the entryway.

Match #6 - World Heavyweight Championship
Chris Benoit
def. Kane
via Pinfall (18:14)
Notes: Benoit was aggressive right from the start, taking it to Kane every way he could. Kane was able to dish it right back, countering Benoit's attempted submission holds with pure power. I think Kane had submission counters stuck in his head a little too much, because when he was fighting out of the Crossface at the end, Benoit switched tactics and simply rolled him up for the pinfall.

Match #7 - Hell In A Cell Match
Triple H def. Shawn Michaels via Pinfall (47:22)
Notes: What brutality. Started off as just a match, but then a steel chair was brought in. Then the steel ring steps. Then a ladder, and then a table. The only thing missing was Triple H's infamous sledgehammer, but this match really had something for everyone. And after everything that transpired in the cell, it still took three Pedigrees to put Michaels down. And the length of the match! It was nearly a Hell In A Cell Iron Man Match.
