"Rock and Roll All Nite" entrance.

Opening match: "The Crippler" Chris Benoit and "The Iceman" Dean Malenko (w/"The Horny Little She-Devil" Terri Runnels) vs. T&A (Test and Albert) (w/Trish Stratus)

JR explains that T&A demanded this match as a response to Ric Flair's insinuations about Trish at the last show.

LG: "The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall."

(T&A's music plays)

LG: "Introducing first, being led to the ring by Trish Stratus and representing Stratusfaction Inc., at a total combined weight of 632 lbs., from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Test, and from Boston, MA, Albert, T&A!"

Crowd boos

("Rabid" plays)

LG: "And their opponents, being led to the ring by 'The Horny Little She-Devil' Terri Runnels and representing The Four Horsemen, at a total combined weight of 432 lbs., from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 'The Crippler' Chris Benoit and from Tampa, FL, 'The Iceman' Dean Malenko!"

Benoit and Albert start, and the battle of skill and technique versus size and power commences, with Albert dominating. Benoit comes back with chops and suplexes, drawing good face heat. Benoit slams Albert and works him over with his usual great matwork. Benoit tags in Malenko, who begins working over Albert's legs, both to set up the Texas Cloverleaf, and to negate Albert's power stuff. Test breaks up a pin attempt off a DDT. Albert comes back and takes over with his power offense. Albert tags in Test as Malenko gets to play face-in-peril for a while. The crowd starts getting restless at T&A's domination of the match. Malenko escapes the punishment and tags in Benoit, which gets a huge face pop. The crowd chants "Benoit! Benoit!" as the Crippler takes apart both big heels. Benoit hits the Rolling German Suplexes on Test, but Albert breaks up the pin. Benoit chops Albert hard and knocks him off the apron. Test runs to hit the Big Boot, but Benoit ducks, grabs Test's arm, and locks on the Crippler Crossface. Trish is distracting the ref, but Terri attacks her and a catfight ensues. Malenko runs over and gets the ref back into the match. Test is about to tap out when Stratusfaction Inc. members Kanyon and Lance Storm run in to make the save for the heels. Ric Flair and AA run in to join the brawl, and referee Tim White just throws the whole match out.

LG: "The referee has declared this match a double-disqualification."

The Horsemen clean house after the match.

Kevin Kelly interviews Bam Bam Bigelow and the Shooters in the back. They say that they are united against the evil, poisonous influence of the Clique. They intend to destroy every member of the Clique and run them out of the JWL.


Back to the ring area, as "Revolution" by the Beatles brings out The Revolution (Ivory, Molly Holly, Riot, Roxy Powers, Jungle Grrrl, Caliente, Boom Boom the Volcano, Paradise, Caged Heat, the Disciplinarian, Beckie the Farmer's Daughter, and Selina Majors).

Ivory takes the mic.

"We know that soon the JWL will be having tournaments to determine a new Women's Champion and new Women's Tag Team Champions. You are looking at the best group of women wrestlers in the JWL. That's right, I said wrestlers. These titles won't be defended in evening gown matches, in gravy bowl matches, in egg nog matches, in swimming pool matches, or any of that stupid T&A crap. Sorry to disappoint you perverts out there, but we are the Revolution, and we take women's wrestling seriously."

The Revolution leaves.


Norman Smiley vs. "Badass" Billy Gunn (w/"The 9th Wonder of the World" Chyna)

LG: "The following contest is scheduled for one fall."

("Ass Man" plays)

LG: "Introducing first, being accompanied by 'The 9th Wonder of the World' Chyna and representing the Clique, from Orlando, FL, weighing in at 275 lbs., 'Badass' Billy Gunn!"

Crowd boos

("Hypnotize" by the Notorious B.I.G. plays)

LG: "His opponent, representing the Shooters, from London, England, weighing in at 240 lbs., Norman Smiley!"

Crowd chants, "Norman! Norman!"

The match starts with Gunn stalling and posing. Smiley surprises Gunn with a quick rollup for two. Smiley uses his technical skills and toughness to counter Gunn's lame offense. Chyna trips up Smiley, but Gunn only gets a one-count out of it. Smiley continues to control Gunn with ease. Gunn comes back with power stuff and goes for the Fameasser, but Smiley catches the leg and turns it into that painful-looking rolling kneebar he used as a finisher before the Norman Conquest. Gunn is so blown up and exhausted that he has no choice but to tap out.

LG: "Here is your winner, NORMAN SMILEY!"

Chyna attacks Norman after the match, but Bigelow and Vader run the heels off.

End of show.
