Recap of last weeks Evo and Orton conflict, including Eugene’s victory over HHH.
Bischoff is in the ring, he informs us that the scheduled Eugene vs. HHH match for tonight, will be in a STEEEEEEEEEL CAGE. Bischoff says that no one can help Eugene. He then addresses the issue with Edge’s torn groin. He says that he will be out a minimum of 4 weeks, so the 30 Day Mandatory Defense can’t be honored, so he has striped Edge of the IC Title. Christian comes out and says that he should be the new Champ, and then Jericho comes out and says that they should fight for it. Bischoff makes the match for Unforgiven, but Jericho wants a twist. Bischoff says that they can go at it in a STEEEEEEEEEEL CAGE, but Christian doesn’t like that idea, since he was out for 4 months after the last Cage match they had. Christian then wants a NO COUNT OUT MATCH!! HAHA. Jericho then suggests a Ladder Match, and Bischoff goes for it. Jericho then jumps Christian, and goes to put the Walls on him, but Tomko comes out and saves Christian.
La Resistance, Ric Flair & Batista vs. Rhyno, Tajiri, Chris Benoit & William Regal
Flair and Benoit start. Back and forth, then Tajiri and Greiner tagged in. Tajiri gets a stiff kick in, and goes for a 2 count, but all 3 other heels get in to break it up. 8 Man Melee as they head to commercials.
Regal and Flair going back and forth, Rhyno and Batista in, and Batista DRILLS Rhyno with a spinebuster. Conway in, and he tosses Rhyno around a bit, then tags in Greiner. Greiner stuffs Rhyno in the corner, and distracts the ref, so they can get some 3 on 1 action in on Rhyno. Flair in, and goes toe to toe with Rhyno. Rhyno KOs Flair, but Flair hooks Rhyno’s leg, and tags in Conway. Crowd starts chanting ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“USA, USA’ and here is the conversation that JR and King have.
King: Where is Regal from?

King: What about Tajiri?
King: Well why are they chanting USA then?

Eugene nails a Tornado Punch, and goes to get out the door. HHH stops him, and shuts the door to issue more punishment. Eugene then slams HHH’s head in to cage, and goes to climb out, but HHH crotches Eugene on the top turnbuckle. HHH then grates Eugene’s forehead on the cage, then sets him in the Tree of Woe. Eugene fights back, attacking HHH’s injured ribs, but HHH locks on a sleeper. Eugene runs HHH into the cage, then tries to crawl out, but HHH grabs him again, and nails a Pedigree. HHH goes to leave the cage, but comes back in. He then picks up Eugene, goes to the corner, and grabs Eugene’s arm, and falls off the top rope, with his knee being driven right into the mat. Eugene looks to have separated his shoulder. HHH then walks right out of the ring to win.

Vignette for the returning Shelton Benjamin. His music is bad. They call him Mr. Benjamin”¦let’s hope that doesn’t stick”¦remember Mr. Hughes?
Randy Orton (c) vs. KANE (w/ Lita)
Anyone know who does Orton’s new music? It kind of sounds like Saliva.
Orton is all nimble around KANE, and getting the best of him. KANE starts to get frustrated, and brings in a chair. Orton sees what is coming, and he gives KANE a low blow, right in front of the ref, and gets DQed.

KANE then big boots Orton’s head into the cage. KANE then puts a neck wrench on Orton, and HHH is screaming for KANE to break his neck. KANE continues to toss Orton around the cage. Orton fights back, grabs KANE, and nails the C+ (according to WCWidro, that was the name that Above Average Mike Sanders called that back/neckbreaker move). KANE is back up, but Orton has a chair, seems like the same one that KANE brought in the ring earlier, and drills KANE”¦really hard. Orton goes to get out of the cage, but HHH grabs the door, but before he can do anything, Orton kicks it in HHH’s face! Orton then drops out to win.
