You know the drill.
We do a ten-bell count for the Fabulous Moolah
(Video package of Nitro and Melina in WWE)
Johnny Nitro (w/Melina Perez) vs. Mikey Whipwreck
(Note: Johnny and Melina get the whole red carpet and paparazzi entrance that they had in WWE.)
Solid wrestling to start, with Johnny being the arrogant jerk and drawing great heel heat throughout. Johnny controls for the most part, though Mikey gets in some good offense too. They go back and forth until Mikey sets up for the Frankenmikey, but Melina distracts referee Chad Patton enough for Nitro to lowblow Mikey and hit the Moonlight Drive corkscrew neckbreaker for the pin at 7:00.
LG: Here is your winner, JOHNNY NITRO!
The crowd boos as Johnny and Melina strut to the back.
"The Japanese Buzzsaw" Yoshihiro Tajiri and Psicosis vs. Kaientai Deluxe (TAKA Michinoku and Shoichi Funaki)
Psicosis and TAKA start, and some brilliant, fast-paced action ensues. Both guys get two-counts on each other. TAKA controls, putting Psicosis in the face-in-peril role. TAKA and Funaki control, drawing great heat. After several minutes, Psicosis finally escapes the beating and makes the HOT tag to Tajiri. Tajiri comes in and whomps ass on his opponents, especially using his vicious kicks. Finally, Tajiri hits the Buzzsaw Kick on TAKA for the pin at 9:00.
LG: Here are your winners, the team of 'THE JAPANESE BUZZSAW' YOSHIHIRO TAJIRI and PSICOSIS!
"The Hardcore Chair-Swinging Freak" Balls Mahoney (w/"The Hardcore Legend" Terry Funk) vs. Dennis Knight (w/"The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes)
Brawl to start, of course. Balls controls as JR references the past issues between Funk and Rhodes, as Balls and Knight have no real history with each other. Knight actually puts forth a decent effort and draws some heel heat. Finally, Balls, in an impressive show of strength, lifts the near-300 lbs. Knight and hits the Nutcracker Suite for the pin at 7:00.
LG: Here is your winner, BALLS MAHONEY!
Balls gets no chance to celebrate, since DUSTIN RHODES ambushes him with a chair! Dustin embraces his father, drawing boos. Dusty announces that the family is back together. The Rhodes collect Knight and leave to major heel heat.
JWL World Tag Team Championship: The Faces of Fear © (w/"The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart) vs. The Dudley Boys (w/Tori)
A good, solid, rough battle, which is what the fans have come to expect from these two teams. Bubba plays heel-in-peril, showcasing his bumping. D-Von interferes to turn the tide. The Dudleys take over, putting Barbarian in the face-in-peril role. After a few minutes of this, Barbarian fights off and makes the hot tag to Meng, who tosses Bubba and eventually gets the Tongan Death Grip on D-Von for the pin at 8:00.
LG: Here are your winners, and still the JWL World Tag Team Champions, THE FACES OF FEAR!
Rhino attacks after the match, but is interrupted by an Undertaker video that says that he is coming to get Rhino at Vengeance.

JWL Women's Championship: "The Female Fighting Phenom" Jazz © vs. Poison
Jazz controls, just tossing Poison around. Poison gets in some good offense, drawing face pops. Both women get two-counts on the other. Finally, Jazz hoists Poison up in the Bitch Clamp (double chicken-wing) and drops her to the mat. This leads to the STF for the tapout at 6:00.
LG: Here is your winner, and still JWL Women's Champion, 'THE FEMALE FIGHTING PHENOM' JAZZ!
