Supposedly we're getting a couple King of the Ring qualifying matches tonight! Just think -- I might be recapping the future King of the Ring, joining such wrestling luminaries as Ken Shamrock, Viscera, and Mr. Ass! The thrill is UNDERWHELMING.
Yes, that's right, there are three number one contenders. I expect we're gonna hear this about a million times tonight.
CHyNA (with EDDiE GuERRERO, roses, and rocket launcher) vs. GoDFATHER (with DeAN MaLENKO and prosti... er, ho's) in a KiNG OF THe RiNG QuALIFYING MaTCH
Godfather does the usual bit. He'd offer Chyna the ho's, but he knows Chyna doesn't really care about them... so he's just gonna have to kick her ass!
So we've got Rikishi, Angle, Buchanan, and Crash Holly in the tourney already, anyone know when we're gonna get brackets on wwf.com?
Our hosts are MiCHAEL HaYES and KeVIN KeLLY.
Coming up -- Al Snow vs. Val Venis in a KotR qualifier, Benoit defends his belt against Rikishi, and the Dudleys meet the Bossmen in a table match! Well, I'm psyched about the first two at least...
Ooooh! They didn't mention this one...
ESSa RiOS (damn! No Lita!) vs. PeRRY SaTURN
I do hope we'll be seeing Lita in a run-in or something...
Dragon suplex... we see Lita watching the match backstage.
BaCKSTAGE, LiLIAN GaRCIA interview RiKISHI. She asks him if a stinkface is in Benoit's future. Rikishi says that when an ass needs backing up, you got to back that ass UP! Plus, it's not like Benoit's never gotten the stinkface before...
Well, I guess it's about time for a ReCAP. We learn, if we didn't know already, about the Rock/Undertaker lumberjack match, Kane's return, and the three number one contender's matches.
BaCKSTAGE, AL SNow is meditating. BLaCKMAN gets him out of it, and asks him if he needs help for the KotR match. Snow says he doesn't need help, and puts on a Burger King crown. (It doesn't actually SAY BK, but that's what it is) Blackman grabs it away from him, and mutters something about he could've been a doctor, but instead he ended up here...
EaRLIER ToNIGHT, in case you weren't watching, Chyna advanced to the next round of the tournament.
VaL VeNIS (with TRiSH STRaTUS and new techno music) vs. AL SNoW (with his heel music) in a KiNG OF THe RiNG QuALIFYING MaTCH
Now THIS should be a good match.
Hey, wasn't Val Venis in the IC title hunt just a week or two ago?
(Val Venis, 4:28)
Interesting... the Great American Bash ad says that "Kevin Nash will get a surprise that will change WCW forever." Did they announce that Bish's "big surprise" had anything to do with Nash?
The WWF SLaM OF THE WeEK, brought to you by SNiCKERS, from RaW - LaST MoNDAY, was Joe C costing Edge and Christian the Tag Team Belts. Hungry? GRAB A SNICKERS!
BiG BoSS MaN AND BuLL BuCHANAN vs DuDLEY BoYZ in a TaBLE MaTCH
Let's see how badly the Bossman can stink up this sucker... I've gotta wonder, did Bull's punches and elbows look really weak before, or is this something he's learned from his partner?
UP NeXT... something happens involving Kid Rock.
Ahhh! THe PLaYS OF THe WeEK, set to AMeRICAN BaD ASS, by KiD RoCK.
BaCKSTAGE, RiKISHI'S ASS is walking down a hallway. Oh he's with it. And BeNOIT is... also walking down a hallway.
THe WWF ReWIND OF THe WeEK, brought to you by PeOPLE WHo DoN'T LiKE CiGARETTES, from SMaCKDOWN - LaST THuRSDAY, was Benoit's win over D'Lo Brown. Tobacco is wacko... IF YOU'RE A TEEN!
RiKISHI vs. WWF INTeRCONTINENTAL CHaMPION CHRiS BeNOIT for the INTeRCONTINENTAL CHaMPIONSHIP
Calling for the stinkface... but a low blow stops it! Ref missed the ballshot, Benoit up... GERMAN SUPLEX WITH BRIDGE! 1... 2... 3! (Benoit, 4:02)
Okay, that was pretty cool. WWF trademark logo is up, and we're out of here...
Not sure how next week's report is gonna work. I'm graduating from college on Sunday (yaaay!) so we'll see if I'm sober enough to tape the show...
I am, as always,
