Non-Televised Match
Sgt. Slaughter def. Muhammad Hassan
w/Khosrow Daivari
via DQ
Notes: Apparently the fans got to decide Muhammad's opponent. The choice was Slaughter or one of two jobbers. The fans chose Slaughter, and he won via DQ. Damn, I wish I would have gone to this event, since it's in my neck-of-the-woods. I've always wanted to see Sarge wrestle.

ON STAGE: Jonathan Coachman was hosting things from the "Control Center." He brought out the Divas to announce which "fantasy outfit" they would wear during their match later in the evening. Online Votes: Schoolgirl (53%), French Maid (30%), and Nurse (17%). For this stipulation, as with all the others, the live crowd was asked for their opinion via applause, but those results pretty much mirrored the online numbers.

Match #1 - WWE Intercontinental Championship
Shelton Benjamin
def. Chris Jericho
via Pinfall (10:57)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Y2J waited in the ring while his opponent was determined. Online Votes: Shelton Benjamin (37%), Batista (20%), Jonathan Coachman (7%); Christian, Rodney Mack, Chuck Palumbo, Steven Richards, Rosey, The Hurricane, Tyson Tomko Maven, William Regal, Rhyno, Tajiri, and Val Venis were lumped under the heading "Other" (36%). Benjamin through Jericho into the corner, but Y2J vaulted to the second rope and attempted to counter. But Benjamin caught Chris coming off the ropes and took him out with a T-Bone Suplex.

BACKSTAGE: We heard closing statements from HBK, Edge, and Benoit before the voting results were announced. Online Votes: Shawn Michaels (39%), Edge (33%), Chris Benoit (28%). Edge was pissed.

Match #2 - WWE Women's Championship - Battle Royal
Trish Stratus
def. Molly Holly, Stacey Keibler,
Victoria, Gail Kim, Jazz, Nidia

Notes: All women wore schoolgirl outfits for this match. Nice. Nidia went out first at 0:37 (by Jazz), Jazz at 1:00 (by Victoria), Gail Kim at 1:24 (by Victoria), Victoria at 3:36 (by Molly and Trish), Stacey Keibler at 5:28 (by Molly), and Molly Holly was gone at 5:36 (by Trish). Once Molly got rid of Stacey, she talked some trash to her, allowing Trish to come up from behind.

Match #3
Gene Snitsky def. Kane
via Pinfall (14:17)
Notes: Online Votes: Steel Chain (41%), Steel Chair (30%), Lead Pipe (29%). As a result, the steel chain was a 'legal domestic object' in this match (as opposed to the usual 'illegal foreign object'). Ha ha ha. When the bell rang, the two men stood there gazing at each other, and I couldn't help but think of what Bobby Heenan said during the same situation at the start of the Piper/Hart match at WrestleMania VIII. "Two ugly people staring at each other, that's fun." That line fit this match perfectly. Match was pretty pedestrian until the end. Snitsky used a chair as well as the chain to do damage to Kane's neck, although the chair was illegal. Snitsky put Kane's head through the chair and then jumped off the second rope onto the chair, causing blood to spew from Kane's mouth. The match was thought to be over because Snitsky walked off, but he came back and wanted the pinfall. And when Kane was tied to a gurney, Snitsky came back to dish out some more punishment. Snitsky really did a number on him.

Match #4
Eugene def. Eric Bischoff via Pinfall (2:12)
Notes: Bisch started off with some swift kicks to Eugene's head. Eugene quickly recovered and finished Bisch off with a Hogan-esque leg drop. Once it was done, Coach announced the winning stipulation. Online Votes: Head Shaved (59%), Wear a Dress (21%), and Be Winner's Servant (20%). Coach acknowledged these results and then went to the ring to ask the Milwaukee audience. They overwhelmingly chose the head shave, but Coach said it was disputed between the servant and dress options. He eventually announced that Eric would be Eugene's servant for five minutes. Suddenly, Vince McMahon's music hit and Vinnie-Mac came to the ring. He forced Bischoff to sit down after threatening to fire him, and Eugene went to work. For Coach's part, Vince made him strip off his clothes and put on the dress. Quite entertaining, and the crowd loved it as well. I was tempted to insert something political here, but I'm going to stay out of that.

Match #5 - WWE World Tag Team Championship
Chris Benoit
& Edge

def. "La Resistance"
(Rob Conway & Sylvan Grenier)
via Submission (16:15)
Notes: Since Edge and Benoit lost the World Championship voting, they had to team up and face La Resistance. At a crucial point in the match, Benoit tagged in Edge, but the referee didn't see it. He disallowed the tag and forced Edge to go back to his corner. Edge went, but didn't stop at the corner--he kept on going, all the way through the back and into his car. A few minutes after he drove off, Benoit took out Grenier and, after a few Germans (an American French sympathizer taken out by a German Suplex delivered by a Canadian...whew!), locked Conway into the Crippler Crossface. Conway had no choice to tap out, and the longest tag reign in seven years was ended. I always hoped Sgt. Slaughter would be on the team to end it. Maggots.

Match #6 - Lingerie Pillow Fight
Christy Hemme def. Carmella DeCesare via Pinfall (1:50)
Notes: This was almost longer than the Bischoff/Eugene fight. The two women had to wait onstage while Coach announced the results. Then they went behind screens to change their clothes. Online Votes: Lingerie Pillow Fight (57%), Evening Gown Match (33%), and Aerobics Challenge (10%). Well, at least it was better than the lame "Miller Lite Catfight Girls" match back at WrestleMania XIX.

Match #7 - World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H
def. Shawn Michaels
via Pinfall (14:05)
Notes: Shawn made a go of it, but he really had no chance. He had a bad wheel going into the match, and Triple H went to work on it. Shawn still had an opportunity, though. He connected with an elbow from the top rope and was striking up the band when Batista showed up. Shawn laid him out, and hit Triple H with Sweet Chin Music. The referee was subsequently distracted by Batista, and the little bitch known as Edge returned to deliver a spear to HBK. Triple H crawled over to make the cover.

Match #8 - Steel Cage Match
Randy Orton def. "Nature Boy" Ric Flair via Pinfall (10:36)
Notes: Online Votes: Steel Cage (68%), Falls Count Anywhere (20%), and Submission (12%). Well, the old man still has it in him. It started out being vintage Ric Flair. The two men were bloodied right away, and both faces were raked against the cage. Slick Ric also had his bare butt exposed to the crowd, and Hebner had to hitch up Ric's shorts. In the end, Flair was trying to go out of the door, but Orton grabbed his leg and pulled him back in. But Ric grabbed the steel chair that the referee was sitting on. He swung at Randy but missed. And that's when Randy connected with the RKO and got the pinfall.
