Winners; Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar.
Kurt and Brock face off. F-5 on Kurt by Brock. Here's Vince on the ramp. Next week - it's him and Brock in the cage.. And Kurt will be the special ref..
Another good show with some good matches. Eddie and Tajiri was well down and using Matt to beat down Zach was a great way for MAtt to generate some heel heat.. The skit with Jamie and Torrie (and Billy and Nidia) was funny. The Cena match with Jordon kind of sucked -too much of a squash - but no real big dissapointments.. It was a good couple of hours..
