Sunday Night Heat Match - WWE World Tag Team Championship
The Hurricane
& Rosey

w/Stacy Keibler
def. "The Heart Throbs"
(Romeo & Antonio)
via Pinfall (5:06)
Notes: Hurricane pinned Romeo. The Throbs had Rosey singled out for most of the match, but he eventually made the tag to the Hurricane.

Match #1 - WWE Intercontinental Championship
def. Shelton Benjamin
via Pinfall (12:49)
Notes: Thank God that the IC title means something again, now that it is off the lame and boring Shelton. Carlito is such a ring general, he knew Shelton would go for that retarded stinger splash. So he took the turnbuckle pad off. When Shelton charged in, one quick sidestep, and Benjamin was on the receiving end of some steel to the head. Now that's cool.

Match #2
Victoria def. Christy Hemme via Pinfall (5:06)
Notes: This match should have lasted about 5 seconds. Well, at least I got to look at the smokin' hot Victoria for five minutes. And Christy got another beat down. Does anyone take that dumb Diva Search winner seriously? And what's worse, there will be another one running around by summer's end.

Match #3
Kane def. Edge
via Pinfall (11:13)
Notes: I never used to be much of a fan of Lita, but in recent months she seems to have gotten a whole lot hotter. But I digress. Kane came off the top rope and landed right into an Edge dropkick. Kane was able to recover and had things going his way when Snitsky ran in. Kane disposed of him, but then Lita tried to get involved. Kane stuck her head through a steel chair, but the ref helped her, allowing Snitsky to kick Kane in the face. A few moments later, Lita distracted the referee and Snitsky came off the top rope. Kane was about to chokeslam him when Edge charged from behind with his briefcase. Kane stepped out of the way and Edge clocked Gene. Finally, Kane connected with the chokeslam and it was all over.

Match #4
Shawn Michaels def. Kurt Angle via Pinfall (26:10)
Notes: I had a bad feeling about this one, and I was right. Not about the match itself, understand, but the outcome. It was another classic from these two, with many reversals and near falls. And in the end, it took TWO superkicks to drop Kurt Angle for the 1-2-3. Kurt did some damage though, because HBK had to hobble out of the ring and to the back.

IN RING: Lilian Garcia came to the ring, and was positively radiant. She introduced Viscera, told him some sweet things, and then sang a song for him, which was pretty good. After the song, Lilian got down on one knee and asked him to marry her. Viscera no sooner finished saying that he would take it into consideration when the familiar music of The Godfather hit. Godfather came out and said, with no offense to Lilian, that a man with Viscera's sexual appetite could not settle down with just one woman for the rest of his life. So Viscera had a decision to make. He looked at the ho's that came down with the Godfather, and of course, he chose the whores and ditched Lilian. Lilian looked so shocked and heartbroken, and she even started crying. My heart went out to her. You need a shoulder to cry on Lilian? Right here, baby. I'll make it all better.

Match #5 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Triple Threat Match
John Cena
def. Chris Jericho

w/Tyson Tomko
via Pinfall (15:18)
Notes: Cena pinned Christian. God, I hate Cena. I hate his face, I hate his music, I hate his moves, and I hate that atrocious title belt. Ooo! It spins!! How thug and ghetto cool! I wish he would die, and I can't believe people go so apeshit over him. And now he goes around saying shit like "homey". He never used to say that. His whole gimmick is turning into a joke. OK, I take back the part about wishing he would die. Because that would deny me the pleasure of seeing Cena crash and burn. I want to be there when someone--I don't care who--takes him out. It could be JBL, Triple H, Christian, Booker T, hell even RVD--OK, I take that back, too. I think RVD is even worse than Cena. But when this guy loses that God-awful title belt, I'll be the happiest man alive. And whomever takes it from him, I hope they invite JBL over so he can blow it up just like Cena's hideous U.S. title belt.

Match #6 - World Heavyweight Championship - Hell In A Cell Match
Dave Batista
def. Triple H
w/Ric Flair
via Pinfall (26:51)
Notes: Triple H was busted wide open in this match. And he turned things up a notch when he brought out a steel chair wrapped in barbed wire. And Batista took two shots to the back from that thing. Trips took a shot to the head, and then Batista rubbed it across Triple H's face for good measure. A few moments later, he was then powerslammed onto it. But he turned the tables on Batista, and Batista was DDTed onto the chair. I'm surprised either man could see, there was so much blood in their eyes. Things progressed as you'd expect, with a sledgehammer, a chain, and stairs coming into play. Batista was able to kick out of the Pedigree, and then delivered a spinebuster to Triple H right on top of the steel steps. One Batista Bomb later, it was over. Triple H had grabbed the sledge on the way up, but he was already on the way down before he could use it.
