Non-Televised Match
Sho Funaki def. Simon Dean via Pinfall
Notes:

Match #1 - WWE Tag Team Championship
Paul London &
Brian Kendrick

Champions
def. "The Pitbulls"
(Jamie Noble & Kid Kash)
Challengers
via Pinfall (13:29)
Notes: Kendrick pinned Kash.

IN RING: SmackDown GM Theodore Long came to the ring and announced that Bobby Lashley would not be able to compete against Finlay due to elevated enzyme levels in his liver. Lashley himself came down and said he was ready to fight. Long had none of it, and Lashley headed to the back. On his way, he was passed by Finlay and Regal. Finlay demanded that his arm be raised in victory via forfeit, but instead Long made a U.S. Title match between Finlay and Regal. On a side note, I'm starting to like JBL's commentary. JBL: "As much as I drink I'm glad to even have a liver! I got a liver like Jake Roberts and I've never had elevated enzymes! He's a coward!"

Match #2 - WWE United States Championship
Finlay
Champion
def. William Regal
Challenger
via Pinfall (13:51)
Notes: Regal lunged off the apron at Finlay, but the Irishman pulled the ring skirt from the ring and it went right between Regal's legs when he landed. When Regal got out of that mess, he was missing a boot. A little later, Regal grabbed the shillelagh but the referee took it away from him. While that was going on, the leprechaun came out from under the ring and gave Regal's boot to Finlay, who promptly used it on Regal's head.

Match #3
Gregory Helms def. Matt Hardy via Pinfall (11:45)
Notes: Helms did a pretty badass swinging neckbreaker off the top rope. Aside from that, the match wasn't that great. Matt had Helms in the corner and was on the ropes laying in some shots when Helms grabbed him and then dropped Hardy's face into the turnbuckle. He then rolled him up quickly for the win.

Match #4 - Interpromotional Punjabi Prison Match
The Undertaker
SmackDown
def. The Big Show
ECW
via Escape (21:26)
Notes: The Big Show and Great Khali jumped Undertaker before the match in a setup. As a result, Theodore Long took it upon himself to remove the Great Khali and replace him with The Big Show. I believe the real reason was medical, but they came up with this lame justification. Big Show was the ECW Champion at the time, so I don't know why he'd have to obey Long. But he did the match, and it turned into an interpromotional match. Show and didn't look very excited as Undertaker came down. The structure itself was made of bamboo, and it had some leather straps tied to it for choking out people, and a table of weapons. I think it looked cool, but I doubt we'll see it again any time soon. But there was a cage around the ring, with four doors in it that when opened by a referee, would stay open for only 60 seconds. After that, it was locked. If all four doors were locked, this cage would have to be climbed. There was also an outer cage with no doors, that could only be escaped by climbing over it. The match had to be won be escaping both cages. Both men were bloodied, but there weren't any terrifically freaky spots during the match. Both combatants were in the the second cage when Undertaker climbed up the first cage. He jumped off onto Big Show, and both men crashed through the outer cage. The referee awarded the bout to Undertaker. Khali and Daivari came out at the end but only watched Undertaker walk off in victory.

Match #5 - Fatal Four-Way Bra & Panties Match
Ashley Massaro def. Kristal Marshall
Jillian Hall
Michelle McCool
(5:17)
Notes: Ashley won by stripping off Kristal's top. After the match, Jillian and Ashley celebrated like all girls do when they are happy, by taking each other's remaining clothes off.

Match #6
Ken Kennedy def. Dave Batista via DQ (8:38)
Notes: Wow. Kennedy was really busted open by Batista on the steel steps. After Batista went to work on that cut, Kennedy decided to walk off, but it was a trick. When Batista turned his back, Ken ran back to the ring only to be speared by Batista. Batista stuck a boot in Kennedy's face in the corner, and refused to break it before the ref's count. So the referee DQed Batista. Batista then flipped out and delivered three spinebusters and a Batistabomb to Kennedy. Kennedy was a bloody mess.

Match #7 - World Heavyweight Championship
King Booker
Challenger
w/Queen Sharmell
def. Rey Mysterio
Champion
via Pinfall (16:49)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Finally. Somone finally took out the little shithead. And now Booker T is truly the King of the World. He even delivered the Three Amigos to Rey Rey. After she grabbed Rey, Nick Patrick sent Sharmell to the back. Booker was dominant for most of the match, but Rey Rey battled back. With the referee down, Rey connected with the 619 and the Frog Splash. Booker T was still alive since the ref was down, and he went and grabbed a chair. Rey Rey kicked it back into Book's face, but in the end, Chavo Guerrero ran down to the ring and waffled Rey Rey with the chair. A confused Booker T took advantage and made the pin. The weird thing was that a nice percentage of the crowd counted along with the ref and celebrated the result. Long live the King.
