Guest columnist: Matt Davis


Hey, just got back from a pretty good show at the Fleetcenter. It was almost full. Empty seats in the balcony.

Boston, MA

Tony Chimel came out and ran down the guidelines. Announces that Commisioner Foley has made the main event a no-DQ match. The national anthem is played. Pyro means we're underway.

Off to a bad start as RTC's music is played but quickly shut off.

1. European Championship
Perry Saturn vs. Al Snow

Nice pops for the hometown boy and Al. Lots of We Want Head chants. Early on Snow hit the Bareback/Franchiser. Saturn took over working the arm. Snow came back with the Snowbomb for 2. After a series of reversals the Rings of Saturn is locked on. Snow gets to the ropes. Shortly after Al locks on the Dragon Sleeper for the submission win.

2. Tag Team Championship
Edge and Christain vs. Lo Down vs. Dudley Boyz

E&C worked the crowd before the match making fun of Boston. Edge speared Buh-Buh right away. 'We want tables" chant. 3-D on Chaz for the pin. Lo Down eliminated. Headbutt to graun spot on both Edge and Christain. " D-Von get the table" They do but get it baseball slide dropkicked in thier face. D-Von is face in peril. He hits a modified slop drop and makes the hot tag. They go for 3-D on Edge but Christain hits Buh-Buh with the belt and gets the pin. Afterwards, the Dudleys attack. 3-D on Christain.
