It doesn't matter, it will be a live show to hype Vengeance, so the taped matches won't air.
Mean Gene: "You know, I don't think it's a question - Goldberg, I don't think it's a question of who's next, I think it's a question of who's left?" Goldberg: "No, see, that's where you're wrong. It ain't who's left, it's - WHO'S NEXT?"

I was live at the show. I sent CRZ a brief rundown of what happened. Of course, I sent him that BEFORE checking the slash to see what was up. Anyway...
I forgot it was a PPV Heat so I found it odd there was no pyro or announcers. First match was D'Lo over Crash with a sky high. Crash worked on D'Lo's arm and D'Lo SOLD it. He kept executing all his power moves one handed -- even did his wavy arm taunt with only one arm. Good match. Then Matt Hardy faces Raven. Raven kicks out of most of Matt's stuff, except the Twist of Fate, which he is able to reverse into a DDT that Matt is able to reverse out of. Matt finally hits the Twist of Fate to win. Then Goldust takes on Sean Stasiak. Some guy was standing up in front of me so all I can say is Goldust won.
If anyone cares what happened after the show last night: nothing. Brock and Heyman left. Then Flair and RVD limped out. Then Taker got up, raised his arm, put his belt on his neck, rode his bike up the ramp, raised his arm, got off the bike and left.
They could do a lot worse than Steiner. I'd sure rather see him than Nash, Hogan, or even Hall. As much as I would like to see the WWF give all these indie guys a chance, it wouldn't make sense from a ratings standpoint.
