Non-Televised Match
Val Venis def. Rob Conway via Pinfall

Match #1 - Interpromotional Match
Randy Orton
def. Kurt Angle
via Pinfall (12:45)
Notes: Kurt Angle's new theme sucks. They edited and remixed it so the "You Suck" part is gone, and it just sounds terrible. It was an OK match. Not either's finest efforts, but solid. Kurt Angle nailed a ton of suplexes, but due to an exposed turnbuckle, Randy landed the RKO and defeated Kurt. Angle needs to get the hell out of ECW.

Match #2
w/Armando Alejandro Estrada
def. Eugene
w/Jim Duggan, Doink, Kamala
via Pinfall (1:36)
Notes: Geez. You blinked and you missed this one. Umaga put down the 'tard in record time, and the "legends" (well, one is) Eugene brought to ringside didn't help much. Umaga took down Hacksaw and Doink, but left Kamala in the ring.

Match #3 - 2-out-of-3 Falls Match
"Nature Boy" Ric Flair def. Mick Foley via 2-0 (7:00)
Notes: Hah. Foley pulled out Mr. Socko, and he was dressed like Ric Flair, robe and all. Flair grabbed Foley's balls before Foley could use Mr. Flair-O. So if you hit a low blow, you will get DQed. But if you're Ric Flair, apparently you can grab a handful of balls and that's OK. Whatever. Foley went for a Figure-Four and Flair rolled him up for a pin at 3:08. Things only got worse, and the spots were pretty sloppy. Flair was able to lock Foley in the Figure-Four, but Foley grabbed a trash can that he had previously thrown in the ring and hit Flair with it, causing the DQ. He then did a number on Flair with the barbed wire baseball bat.

Match #4 - WWE Intercontinental Championship - Triple Threat Match
Johnny Nitro
def. Shelton Benjamin
via Pinfall (12:04)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- I wish Carlito would get a bigger push. He did a pretty bad-ass springboard off the top rope to the outside onto both other men. Carlito had another great move later on in the match, and he was the MVP of this bout. The best stuff was when Carlito and Benjamin were going at it. Nitro is just pretty lame. MNM was a great tag team, but they shouldn't have broken them up. At least they could have done something better for Nitro. It just doesn't work for me. Another great maneuver involved all three men and the top rope. Shelton suplexed Carlito off the top, and Nitro ended up grabbing Benjamin and tossing him in a reverse Powerbomb. Anyway, Carlito connected with the Backcracker, but Nitro pulled Carlito out of the ring and pinned Benjamin.

Match #5 - WWE World Heavyweight Championship - Interpromotional Match
Rob Van Dam
def. Edge
via Pinfall (17:53)
Notes: Dumbass RVD, both the WWE and ECW Champion, wore both belts to the ring, and I've never seen two more uglier belts on the same man at the same time. Then again, I've never seen two uglier belts period. This match really sucked. Lita held a chair in the corner, but RVD dodged Edge's spear and Edge hit the chair. RVD hit the Frog Splash and made the pin.

Match #6
"Imposter" Kane def. Kane via Pinfall (7:07)
Notes: Kane was on a roll when he came off the top rope right into a chokeslam. Imposter Kane then made the pin and fired off his pyro. The crowd was dead for this, and I can't blame them. This whole storyline fell pretty flat.

Match #7 - Extreme Rules Lumberjack, Interpromotional Match
John Cena
def. Sabu
via Submission (6:48)
Notes: The ECW lumberjacks consisted of many WWE washouts like Al Snow, Stevie Richards, Justin Credible, Little Guido, Tommy Dreamer, and a couple of other humps like Sandman, Balls Mahoney, and Roadkill. The RAW lumberjacks were Val Venis, Matt Striker, Charlie Haas, Viscera, Rob Conway, Snitsky, Lance Cade, and Trevor Murdoch. Man, Sabu looks like a slightly melted and scarred Randy Savage. To quote Arnold from Predator, he is "one ugly motherf----er." Sabu started out tossing Cena to the outside several times, allowing the ECW jags to work him over. But Cena battled back and FUed Sabu from inside the ring through a table on the outside of the ring. He then put on the STFU and Sabu tapped. Kind of short, kind of lame. But ECW lost, and that's always nice to see.

Match #8 - Handicap Match
"DeGeneration X"
Triple H
Shawn Michaels
def. "The Spirit Squad"
via Pinfall (17:50)
Notes: Johnny's nose was pretty bloodied, maybe even broken. But he went in there and put on some sort of karate headband, and tried harnessing his chi or some crap, but was put on his ass by Trips. Triple H pinned Kenny, and Michaels pinned Mitch. I don't know why Michaels pinned anyone, since HHH and Kenny were the legal men. Whatever. Nothing too special to write home about here. If you've watched Raw around the time of this pay-per-view, you've pretty much seen this match. DX cleared the ring except for Mitch, and then HBK shoved Mitch's face into Triple H's exposed ass.
