February Week 3, Year 3

This is the final week before Extreme Rules.

Match 1. Ric Flair and Orton vs. RVD and Shawn Michaels
Orton and RVD fought for most of the match. Orton hit RVD with an Angle Slam-type move. RVD tagged in Michaels but he received an RKO. Michaels tried to fight back. He went  for a suplex but Orton reversed it into a neckbreaker. Flair was in the match for about a minute. HBK tagged in RVD. He received his own RKO and was pinned.

Match 2. Benoit w/ Batista vs. Stone Cold w/ Jeff Hardy
Batista and Jeff were fighting each other on the outside. Austin hit the Stunner. He then hit a clothesline and some mounted punches. He tried pinning Benoit, but Batista distracted the ref. Benoit caught Austin in a school boy but Jeff distracted the ref. In about 20 seconds, Austin hit two more Stunners on Benoit. The ref threw both managers out and Benoit caught Austin in another roll-up and won.

Match 3. Kane, Edge and Christian vs. Rhino, Rock and JBL
Again, I say I hate six-man tags, yet I book one here. I was right, this match took forever. 29 minutes to be exact. JBL hit a huge powerbomb on Kane. All six men entered the ring and all hell broke loose. After a power slam, Rhino pinned Christian but got only a 2. Christian hit the Killswitch on Rhino at the 26-minute mark. After an inverted DDT, Christian pinned JBL to score the win.

Main Event. Triple H vs. Scott Steiner  #1 Contender's Match
If Steiner wins, can he become the first man in my Universe to hold the WCW and WWF titles? We will have to wait for that as Triple H dominated Steiner. He hit a side slam then a spine buster. He then taunted Steiner and hit the Pedigree to win.

After the match, an announcement was made that the match would be restarted as a submission match.

I feel that the restart favors Steiner more than The Game. Triple H must feel like he was robbed of a title shot. Steiner had Triple H in a single-leg Boston crab, but Triple H was able to reach the ropes. Triple H locked in a full Nelson, but Steiner broke out of it. Both men are hurting really bad. They spent most of the restart fighting outside of the ring. Steiner began bleeding and received hit 4th, or even 5th, Pedigree. After the 7th Pedigree, Triple H locked in a rear naked choke and Steiner tapped.

Match 1. John Cena vs. Lesnar
Cena hit the AA pretty early but Lesnar was able to kick out. Goldberg ran down to the ring and hit the Jackhammer on Cena. Lesnar hit an overhead belly-to-belly after Goldberg left. Lesnar then hit an F5 and a military press. He then pinned Cena and won.

After the match, Cena was carried away on a stretcher.

Match 2. A-Train and Big Show vs. Hollywood Hogan
These two big men took it to Hogan. Show hit Hogan with multiple right hands. Goldberg ran out from the audience and hopped over the guardrail. He then attacked A-Train. After the interference, Hogan attempted a comeback. Show hit Hogan with a military press and pinned him for the win.

Match 3. Bubba and Jericho vs. Angle and Scotty
Jericho and Bubba attacked their opponents from behind as they were walking down the ramp. Bubba hit the Bubba Bomb and the Death Valley Driver on Angle right in from of Scotty. After some elbows to the side of Scotty's skull, Bubba scored the win.

After the match, Bubba and Jericho each grabbed a chair and attacked Scotty and Angle. 

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Nash Hall
Nash walked out and introduced Hall as Goldberg's opponent. Goldberg was confused and Hall went right on the offensive. At the 5-minute mark, Hall hit the Outsider's Edge. He almost won, but Goldberg was able to kick out. Goldberg was able to hit some moved but Hall hit another finisher and got the victory.

After the match, Hall continued the beatdown on Goldberg.

Recap: Benoit and Batista have formed a team. The restarted submission match took just as long as the 6-man tag, but Triple H was able to defeat Steiner not once, but twice. Jericho has now aligned himself with the Dudleyz.
