July Week 3, Year 3

The final week before Money in the Bank. I hope the participants in the ladder match are good.

Match 1. Benoit vs. Shelton Benjamin  Intercontinental Championship
About three and a half minutes into the match, Benoit had Shelton locked in the Crossface. He then hit two northern lights suplexes, but Shelton kicked out both times. After an armbar, Benoit pinned Shelton to retain his belt.

Match 2. Steiner vs. Booker T
Matt Hardy walked out and stood at ringside. These two former WCW champs took out all the stops. Booker landed his scissors kick at 6:55. The match spilled to the outside where Steiner landed his belly-to-belly. Steiner won with a pinning northern lights suplex.

After the match, Matt entered the ring and raised Steiner's hand in celebration. He then turned him around and clotheslined him.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Michaels
Jericho was in control when RVD ran down to the ring. He helped out Michaels with a heel kick. Jericho came back and landed his own heel kick on HBK. He then hit the Codebreaker. Jericho went for another one, but Michaels countered it and hit a Sweet Chin Music and got the 3 count.

Main Event. Batista and Orton vs. Kane and Goldberg
Evolution was working well together, keeping Goldberg away from Kane. After breaking out of a full nelson, Batista speared Goldberg. He then hit the Batista Bomb. Kane eventually came in and chokeslammed Batista. Batista lifted Goldberg up for a two-handed chokeslam. He then tagged in Orton who pinned Goldberg for the win.

Match 1. Miz and Morrison vs. Too Cool
We saw Miz debut last week. He is now teaming up with Morrison to add more competition to the tag division. Rikishi was putting a beating on JoMo. He landed a bulldog and a DDT. A minute later, he hit the Rikishi Driver. Miz came in and received a Rikishi Driver of his own and lost.

Match 2. Taker and Edge vs. Lesnar and JBL
This match went a little over 15 minutes and I didn't want it to end. JBL hit Edge with his powerbomb. Taker was tagged in and hit JBL with the Last Ride. Lesnar hit a fisherman suplex on Taker and almost won. Lesnar then hit Taker with the F5 and won.

Match 3. A-Train vs. Kurt Angle
Scotty walked down to the ring and stood at ringside. Around the 6-minute mark, Angle connected with the Angle Slam. After a spine buster, Angle pinned A-Train but it was only a 2. Angle continued the attack with two German suplexes. Angle hit another Angle Slam and won.

After the match, Angle grabbed a chair and went to attack A-Train. Scotty ran in and stopped the attack. 

Main Event. John Cena vs. Mr. Kennedy
Another week, another Cena/Kennedy match. Kennedy attacked Cena from behind as he was walking down the ramp. Kennedy landed the Mic Check on Cena. Cena made a comeback with a flipping face buster. He then landed the AA. After a Lou Thesz Press, Cena pinned Kennedy to win. 

Recap: Matt turned heel.
