Todd with Dusty Rhodes. Dusty says that he invented the GAB. Dusty continues to ramble incoherently.
Chavo Guerrero (c) vs. Jimmy Wang Yang vs. Shannon Moore vs. Funaki vs. Jamie Noble – Cruiserweight Open – Cruiserweight Title
I don’t know if Hornswoggle is actually in the match, he did run in the ring at the beginning of the match. They all attack Chavo to start. I guess this isn’t elimination. They pair off and fight. Chavo starts to isolate Wang, and locks on Lance Storm’s Maple Leaf leg lock. Funaki breaks it up, and Moore and Funaki square off. Chavo in, nails the Gory Special on Funaki for 2, when Wang breaks it up. Chavo hits a superplex on Wang, but Noble has Chavo on his shoulders, and they all fall to the mat. Hornswoggle is back, and climbs the ropes and nails a Tadpole (Frog) Splash off the top rope on Noble and scores the pin!!!
Winner and New Champion – Hornswoggle
Hornswoggle celebrates on the floor, while the others stare him down. They go to get him, but he runs under the ring, and runs up the ramp.
Video package on Lashley.
The Sandman vs. Carlito – Singapore Cane on a Pole Match
Sandman comes out first and doesn’t drink any beer. Carlito then comes out and spits apple in Sandman’s eyes. They put the cane on the pole, and it is VERY high. Sandman finally gets to the cane, and swings at Carlito, but Carlito ducks it and nails the Backstabber for the pin.
Winner – Carlito
Todd with Orton. Orton asks if Todd knew that it was HBK’s Birthday. Todd said he didn’t, and Orton says that HBK didn’t know either, ever since Orton kicked his head in!

Melina dominates the beginning of the match. Candice starts to fight back, and hits a top rope cross body for 2. Melina back up, nails a split legged neckbreaker for 2. Melina with a sleeper, but Candice reverses out of it. She sets up for the Unprettier, but pulls it in for a bulldog for the pin. King says that Candice calls it the Candy Wrapper.
Winner and Still Champion – Candice Michelle
Backstage, Matt catches up with his brother Jeff. Matt says not to lose his focus, and he will win. Candice walks up and gets a bottle of water, and starts dumping it all over herself, and it goes really slow with bad porn music. Faarooq comes in for his ‘DAMN’.
Umaga (c) vs. Jeff Hardy – Intercontinental Title
Jeff attacks Umaga to start, but Umaga fights him off and begins to pummel him. Umaga tosses Jeff around from corner to corner and locks on a shoulder nerve pinch. Jeff fights out, goes up for a crossbody, but Umaga catches him and nails a huge Catatonic for 2. Jeff gets some life in him, and knocks Umaga to the floor, and then suicide dives on him. Back in the ring, Umaga clotheslines Jeff and puts him in the corner. Umaga goes for his running ass bump, but Jeff slides out of the way, and hits the Whisper in the Wind, and follows it with a Swanton Bomb for 2. Umaga back up, Thrust Kick sends Jeff sitting in the corner, Umaga then hits the running ass bump, and then the Samoan Spike…all in a very vicious sequence for the pin.
Winner and Still Champion – Umaga
Video package on Cena.
John Morrison (c) vs. CM Punk – ECW Title
In case anyone is wondering, Morrison comes out with the same designs on his tights, and the same ring coat he’s been wearing for months now. This is a very slow and boring match. Morrison’s new name and bad music has just turned me off of him. CM goes for a springboard clothesline but Morrison dodges it, and knees him in the head on the way down for the pin.
Winner and Still Champion – John Morrison
Recap of Dusty/Orton.
Dusty Rhodes vs. Randy Orton – Texas Bull Rope Match

Recap of Edge giving up his title and Khali winning it.
The Great Khali (c) vs. Kane vs. Batista
Kane & Batista double team Khali, but Khali fights back and dominates. Michael Cole responds to the chorus of boos by saying ‘Get used to this SmackDown fans, Khali will continue to dominate.’ They fall to the outside, and Kane & Batista put Khali through the ECW announce table. In the ring, Kane & Batista go at it. Khali comes back in and Kane choke slams him for 2 before Batista breaks it up. Batista hits the big Spinebuster for 2 when Kane breaks it up.

They play a HHH Returns video, and it says that he will be back at SummerSlam.
King Booker and Queen Sharmell come out, and Booker again says that HHH is the King of nobody, and that the only true King is King BOOKAH!! He then turns to Lawler, and tells Lawler to come to the ring and surrender his crown at his feet. Lawler says that if Booker wants his crown, he can come take it. Booker calls it treason and leaves.
