InsidePulse’s WWE Sunday Night Heat Report 1.23.04

And it’s sure as hell not this show.

That crazy guy’s up to it again. If you haven’t done so, please check out the best Smackdown! recap on the web right here. I don’t know how he does it.

Taped from Toronto, Ontario
Hosts are Johnathan Coachman & Todd Grisham

Rhyno vs Steven Richards – Fans chant “ECW.” Rhyno counters a hiptoss with his own, and chops Steven. Rhyno backdrops him to set up the GORE, but Richards rolls out. Richards sends Rhyno out, and works him over there. Richards goes for his own GORE, which is pretty stupid, but Rhyno stops him with a clothesline. Rhyno gets a spinebuster, and it’s the REAL GORE time. He hits it, much to the delight of the fans, and it gets 3 @ 5:03.

Tajiri vs Wavell Star – Wavell gets fresh to start, and Tajiri mocks. Star PUNCHES Tajiri, and gets 2. Tajiri gets a spinning heel kick, and kicks the crap out of him. Kick to the jaw gets 2. Springboard back elbow, but Star gets a pumphandle powerbomb like move for 2. Tajiri gets the Tarantula, but Star ducks the Buzzsaw Kick, only to get his dumbass kicked kicked for real and pinned @ 3:37.
*1/2

Video footage of WWE LIVE.

Video package covers Orton’s bitching from last week. The we cut to HHH talking. Kinda odd. Maybe to cover up some of the boos.

We pick up the Kane/Snitsky match with…Snitsky whipping Kane with a belt, while the fans do the wave. Kane counters a powerbomb, and gets a big boot. He gets a chair, but Gene kicks him in the gut. He beats Kane with the chair, and looks to give him a Taboo Tuesday special, but Kane sits up, and hits Gene. Kane now whips Gene with the belt, and he takes him to the ramp. Gene low blows him to save himself for a while, but Kane gets the Chokeslam off the ramp, onto a stack of tables, which I guess holds wiring.

Christy Hemme struts her fine ass out, which is surprising on Heat. Anyways, Simon comes out, and insults her butt. Hemme turns the Simon System offer down, and Venis comes out.

Simon Dean vs Val Venis – We come back with Dean in control, but Venis coming back with a vertical suplex. Val nmakes him eat turnbuckle, and gets a side Russian Legsweep. Dean beats him with the barrier outside, and gets 2 back in. Odd modified gutbreaker gets 2. Val comes back with some clotheslines, and a spinebuster sets up the Money Shot, but Dean rolls away. He gets some metal thing out of his bag, and hits Venis in the head with it for the win.
****1/2
Sorry, that’s my rating for Christy Hemme.
Match: 1/4*

Don’t miss Orton/Flair tommorow!
