June Week 4, Year 2

Raw lost both of the cross-brand matches. WCW has taken over the #1 spot.

Match 1. Hardyz vs. Edge and Christian
 Matt and Christian started things off. Each team incorporated double team moves into their attack. After many tags, Edge speared Matt but Jeff broke up the pin. Jeff went for a Twist of Fate but Christian reversed it into the Killswitch. Jeff was able to hit the Twist of Fate on Edge, but he kicked out at one. In a surprise to me, Christian hit Matt with the spear and won.

Match 2. 6-man Tag - X-Pac and New Age Outlaws vs. APA and Godfather
Road Dogg and Godfather started it off, but they both quickly tagged out. The APA and Godfather were keeping their opponents in their corner. DX was causing all types on confusing, having all three members in at once. After much back and forth action, X-Pac scored the pin on Farooq after an X-Factor.

After the match, the ref checked on Farooq.

Match 3. Lawler and Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Angle and Triple H
Scotty 2 Hotty makes his Raw debut. And it looks like The Game is recovered from his injury. Lawler and Angle get things going. Angle quickly tagged in Triple H. If Scotty can win here, he would be launched into Superstardom. Triple H hit Scotty with a running clothesline for the win.

Main Event. Taker vs. Big Show
Show used his strength to dismantle Taker. The match ended up on the outside where show threw Taker into the steps. Taker got very little offense in during the match. Out of nowhere, Taker hit Old School then the Tombstone, but Show kicked out at 2. After a side slam, Taker got the 3 count.

After the match, Austin came in and raised Taker's arm in celebration.

Match 1. Mr. Perfect and Luger vs. Eddie and Rey
Another Superstar debuting as Curt Hennig debuts on Nitro. Eddie and Rey are looking to regain their tag titles. Can this new team of Luger and Mr. Perfect beat the former champs and climb the ranks in the tag division? Rey was able to pin Luger after a roll-up. Perfect and Luger are not off to a good start.

Match 2. Savage vs. Jericho
Two of the greatest go at it, looking to move up in the rankings. Savage hit Jericho with a back suplex and a double ax smash from the top rope. These two put on a classic with Jericho picking up the win after a Codebreaker.

After the match, Hogan appeared at the top of the ramp and attacked Jericho. 

Match 3. Booker vs. Regal
The technical master William Regal was on offense when the bell rang. The match spilled out in front of the announcers. Regal put Booker in a t-bone suplex pin, but he kicked out. Regal hit his powerbomb and scored the victory.

After the match, Regal grabbed a chair to attack Booker, but Scotty 2 Hotty ran down and saved Booker.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Scott Hall
Hall was on offense at first, but Goldberg got some moves in, too. Goldberg hit the Jackhammer, but didn't go for a pin. He picked him a chair and clocked Hall over the head. Hall hit the fallaway slam and then the Outsider's Edge. Goldberg kicked out at 2. Goldberg won after a powerslam.

Recap: Farooq is injured for now. Despite the loss, Hennig and Luger formed a team - Varsity Club. Is Hogan a face? Will he leave the nWo? Damn, Scotty is making it known that he's back.
