> JBL KEEPS TITLE AT NO MERCY- John 'Bradshaw' Layfield survived yet another pay-per-view with the
WWE title as he defeated the Undertaker with help from John Heidenreich.
Undertaker tombstoned JBL on the steel steps and the champ was bleeding
pretty badly. After trading some shots the action moved on the
announcer's table where once again the Spanish announce table was the
victim of a 'Holy Sh!t' moment. Taker chokeslammed JBL from the
Tazz/Cole table onto the Spanish table which looked pretty nice on TV.
The ending came when Heidenreich came out from the hearse and attacked
the Undertaker and shoved him in the hearse but Taker fought back, only
to receive a clothesline from hell by Bradshaw. Eventually he was once
again placed in the hearse and taken backstage. Paul Heyman was the
driver of the hearse and later Heidenreich rammed an SUV into the parked
hearse then fled the scene with his manager.
In other matches, Eddie Guerrero opened the show against Luther Reigns.
Guerrero won the match after hitting Reigns with a baton that was
'stolen' from a police officer at ringside and then hit the frogpslash.
Spike Dudley retained the Cruiserweight title against Nunzio after some
help from his Dudley brothers; Kidman and London had a good match which
saw Kidman getting out on top. Kidman hit the shooting star press and
London bled from his mouth. After trashing the fans on the mic, Kidman
did another shooting star press on London who was strapped to a
stretcher; Kenzo Suzuki and Rene Dupree held on to their tag team gold
by defeating RVD and Rey Mysterio; The Big Show got his revenge on Kurt
Angle by pinning the former champ cleanly. The ending was a good looking
chokeslam off the top rope; John Cena regained the US Title by pinning
Booker T after an FU; Rico, Charlie Haas and Miss Jackie defeated the
Dudley Boyz and Dawn Marie with Rico pinning D-Von. Dawn Marie wrestled
most of the match in her bra. I know, useless point, but still. Hah.
> PPV FINISH TAPED IN AFTERNOON- The ending of the pay-per-view where John Heidenreich rammed the SUV
in the hearse was filmed earlier in the afternoon yesterday after all
the Superstars and crew were in the building. The feed was switched to a
tape when the hearse appeared backstage and obviously it didn't have
anybody inside. The blood that appeared on Heidenreich which was
supposed to be from the effect from the crash was also fake.
> WWE ANNOUNCES NEW 5 YEAR DEAL WITH BSKYB IN UK- Today WWE and BSkyB announced a 5 year agreement between the two

> NEW ANNOUNCER JOINS WWE- A new announcer has joined World Wrestling Entertainment this week.
Todd Romero, a former Channel 41 sports anchor in Kansas City is the
latest addition to the WWE announcing family. It's not known yet what
show he'll be on. Romero was let go by Channel 41 in February of 2003
and said the WWE offer couldn't be refused.
> GROUP PROTESTS BEFORE RAW LIVE EVENT- A group of protesters this past Saturday stormed into Burlington in
front of the Memorial Auditorium to protest against WWE, saying that the
company promotes violence on women and homophobia. Fans who were waiting
to get in the building met with the protesters outside the arena however
no incidents were reported. The show took place and no disturbances
