This is the new WWF Metal! More highlights we've seen on every other of WWF programs - and two matches like last week? We'll see. Your hosts are the patronising Kevin Kelly and Tom Prichard.

CHESTBANGER MOSH -vs- "THE RATINGS KILLER" MIDEON. Mideon starts off the fun with rights. Yes! Mosh throws him to the outside. Pascato to the outside by Mosh. Rights. Whip reversed twice to the buckle, Mideon hits the steps. Rights. Back in the ring. Arm twist by Mosh - Mideon counters with the clothesline. Backbreaker. 1, 2... "You shut the hell up" - what a WONDERFUL line! Mosh back with rights. Whip to the buckle, rusn into a boot. Mideon out with a clothesline. Oh god this city just loves Mideon! 1, 2... Whip, clothesline misses, cross body block by Mosh - 1, 2... Irish whip, Back body drop attempt by Mideon - into a DDT! Mosh with a drop toe hold into the ropes - rope choke. Mosh to the top - vertical splash! 1, 2, 3 (4:04). That brought flashbacks of the first bout of Wrestlemania 13.

Smackdown highlights. Kurt Angle, Edge & Christian are the real American hero's.

GANGREL -vs- TAKA MICHINOKU (w/ Funaki & Flags). Gangrel with kicks. Rights. Kick. Rights in the corner. Hiptoss all the way across the ring. Taka with a drop toe hold. Kick. Chops. Whip, Gangrel counters a back body drop attempt with a forearm. Choke with the boot. Whip to the buckle, up and over - waistlock, elbow to the face. Suplex into a pin! 1, 2...

Off the ropes, spin kick into a belly to back suplex counter! Double underhook - belly to belly suplex. Whip to the buckle. Splash in corner. Taka to the top - dropkick from the top! Michinoku driver? Nah, Gangrel counters it with the Impaler DDT (4:43).

Raw highlights. Triple H. The Rock. The Undertaker. Kane. Lotsa brawling. Rock into the announcers table by Taker. Into the ring. Clocks Triple H. The question: "Who is the face?" Triple H comes back with a steel chair - but it freezes in mid-air. Yep, you betcha. Rock Bottom on Kane. You betcha, Rock and Triple H are getting tied up for the MILLIONTH TIME. Triple H then faced the Rock - Rock should have won, but it resulted in what appeared to be whole locker room coming out and brawling. Undertaker chokeslammed Rock. Then on Smackdown, Undertaker, Kane and The Rock faced X-Pac, Road Dogg and Triple H. When X-Pac is the most talented man in the ring, you're in trouble. Undertaker pinned X-Pac after a chokeslam.

Al SNOW & STEVE BLACKMAN -vs- D'LO BROWN & PERRY SATURN. Al and D'Lo in the ring. Al with arm twists - D'Lo reverses it. Wristlocks. D'Lo with shoulder blocks. Runs into a hiptoss.

Saturn with rights in the corner. Whip reversed to the buckle. Dropkick by Blackman. Whip reversed, Al grabs Saturn - face first into the steps. Double clothesline on the outside. This is getting pretty tricky. Teddy Long gets to 2 when Snow covers Saturn. Saturn with a suplex of some sort on Snow. D'Lo with dropkicks. Al back with rights. Whip to the buckle. D'Lo said "punk". Sidewalk slam. Rights. Whip, Snow catches the ropes, tag to Blackman nearly makes it - D'Lo grabbed the leg and pulls him to his corner. Tag to Saturn. Suplex. Tag to D'Lo again. D'Lo gets clocked. HOT TAG to Blackman - who eliminates everyone. Loads of kicks. Which heat things up. D'Lo catches D'Lo. Shit, this is getting heavy. Saturn gets clocked with a kick. D'Lo is on the outside. Stage dive? Snow gets crotched by D'Lo. Roll up by Saturn, and clocks D'Lo in the process - 1, 2... Spinebuster and a roll up - 1, 2.... This is getting real good. Blackman with a fishermans suplex - 1, 2... D'Lo pulls Teddy Long out. Eh? Why's the bell ringin' then (6:30)? A double DQ? Bah - well, it was a great match.

Well, three matches this week then - better than last week.
