Non-Televised Match (RAW)
Santino Marella def. "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters via Pinfall
Notes:

Match #1 - Stretcher Match (INTER)
Rob Van Dam def. Randy Orton (14:33)
Notes: OK, this was kind of crap. Orton pretty much dissected RVD the whole time, and yet RVD still managed to win. RVD punched him, and then quickly put him on the stretcher and pushed it across the finish line, which at that time was only a few feet away. A high point here was when RVD flipped over the top rope to the outside, but Orton moved off of the stretcher. RVD was pretty loopy even during the match, and Orton kicked his ass after the bell. He kicked him in the head and delivered a pretty good DDT. RVD won the match, but was carted off to the back on a stretcher anyway.

Match #2 - Six-Man Tag Team Table Match (ECW)
CM Punk
Tommy Dreamer
The Sandman
def. Elijah Burke
Matt Striker
Marcus Cor Von
(7:18)
Notes: Pretty blah match, I thought. Burke was laid out on the table, and then Punk superplexed Striker onto Burke and through the table. At least it was kinda short.

Match #3 - WWE World Tag Team Championship - Ladder Match (RAW)
"The Hardys"
(Matt & Jeff Hardy)
Champions
def. "The World's Greatest Tag Team"
(Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas)
Challengers
(17:18)
Notes: There were some good spots here, but I've seen better in the way of ladder matches. Benjamin got backflipped over the top rope onto a ladder, so that was cool. I wish this match had a little more buildup. The crowd was into the Hardys, but I think they would have been a bit more lively if TWGTT was built up a tad more beforehand. Benjamin jumped off the top of a ladder that was in the ring and landed on Matt, who was laid out on a ladder on the outside of the ring. That ladder had one end propped on a different ladder, and Haas was holding up the other end. Another great move. Hardys pushed the ladder with TWGTT on it over, and Benjamin landed outside on a ladder, and Haas got the Swanton from Jeff while Matt got the belts.

Match #4 - Lumberjack Match (SMDN)
Mark Henry def. Kane via Ref's Decision (9:06)
Notes: OK, the DVD of this match was weird. They must have dubbed over the sound. There was just some cheap, generic music and no crowd noise, no Chimel introducing the lumberjacks, no nothing. Then all of a sudden the commentary starts and we're back to normal. Whatever. I got a nice laugh when Kane was dumped to the outside and Kenny, Chavo, and Carlito just backed off when Kane gave them a hard look. Usual big man offense here. The bad thing was that the ref stopped the match with Kane in Henry's bearhug. Why does Kane always lose? Kane's done more jobs than Jenna Jameson. Lumberjacks: Chris Benoit, Val Venis, Santino Marella, Balls Mahoney, Stevie Richards, Mike Mizanin, Kevin Thorn, Chris Masters, Johnny Nitro, Chavo Guerrero, Kenny Dykstra, and Carlito.

Match #5 - ECW World Heavyweight Championship - Street Fight (ECW)
Bobby Lashley
Challenger
def. Vince McMahon
Champion
w/Shane McMahon, Umaga
via Pinfall (12:24)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- This was pretty much another handicap match, but at least it lasted longer than the last one. Wait a minute, that could be taken as a bad thing. Shane jumped off the top rope and put Lashley through the ECW announce table, but we've seen that before. Shane then went Coast to Coast, but Lashley moved and the trash can hit Umaga. Lashley then speared Vince and made the pin. Yeah, this should've been shorter.

Match #6 - Pudding Match (RAW)
Candice Michelle def. Melina via Submission (2:59)
Notes: Candice won the match by holding Melina's face under the pudding, forcing her to tap out, I guess. I've never seen a submission in a pudding match. And I can't believe this nearly went three minutes. Maria started to interview Candice by the pool, but Melina splashed some pudding on her. So Maria then dove into the pool and attacked Melina. Melina pulled the ref into the pool as well, for good measure.

Match #7 - World Heavyweight Championship - Steel Cage Match (SMDN)
Edge
Champion
def. Dave Batista
Challenger
via Escape (15:37)
Notes: Both men were leaving at the same time--Edge was climbing out as Batista was leaving through the door. Batista was nearly all the way out, but only his hands were on the ground (not his feet) as Edge dropped from the cage and won. OK cage match, I wasn't that into it. Batista was ticked off, though. And the Rated-R Era continues. On a side note, I also like how on these DVDs they kept the SummerSlam ads, but completely edited out the Jackass portion. I hate editing, but in this case, they should've inserted a new SS ad or something.

Match #8 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Falls Count Anywhere Match (RAW)
John Cena
Champion
def. The Great Khali
Challenger
w/Ranjin Singh
via Pinfall (10:29)
Notes: Not the greatest match, but I liked it. The man vs. the monster. Cena managed to have a decent match with the big man. Cena was planted on top of a large, mobile crane. But when Khali got up there, Cena had recovered and then proceeded to FU Khali off the crane to the floor. Khali was down for the count.
