Episode Summary

Episode 72
(1) Chris Benoit beat Rob Conway (w/ Sylvan Grenier) by submission in a non-title match, with Johnny Nitro as special guest referee. Benoit was on offense as this match was joined in progress. Nitro tried to get him to break a hold in the ropes, but Benoit pulled Conway away from the ropes and suplexed him into Nitro, knocking him out of the ring. La Resistance nailed Benoit with a double-team as another ref came to the ring and counted two. Benoit then nailed Grenier off the ring apron and knocked Conway into the Crossface for the submission. This was a decent, but short match, by Benoit. (2) Lita won seven-woman battle royal by eliminating Trish Stratus to become #1 contender to the WWE Women's Championship. Lita was on offense momentarily as this match was joined in progress, but Trish soon turned the tables with a kick to the midsection. She attempted a bulldog, but Lita pushed her into the ropes where Jericho tripped her. As Trish turned to yell at Jericho, Lita dropkicked her from behind for the elimination. Backstage, Trish tried to complain to Christian about what happened, but he blew her off. He told her that she'll be his partner in a match against Jericho at Backlash, and she didn't seem to be too happy to hear that news. Loyd plugged the handicap match at Backlash, as well as the women's title match. (3) Kane pinned Rhyno This wasn't as much of a squash as I had thought it would be. Rhyno did manage to nail Kane with the Gore, but only got a two-count. Kane then locked him in a chokeslam for the pinfall. After the match, Edge came down to the ring with a cast on his left hand. He went toe-to-toe with Kane, but Kane soon dominated. He knocked Edge to the mat and then grabbed a chair to use. Edge surprised Kane with a spear, but Kane sat right up. Kane then took over on Edge again and prepared to break his other hand in the chair. Edge soon countered it with an elbow, and then knocked Kane down with a cast-shot to the head. Edge backed away from the ring as Kane couldn't get up to his feet. (4) Shelton Benjamin beat Triple H (w/ Evolution performing various "official" jobs around ringside) by countout. This was a good match, but too short to be a great match. Hunter was on offense for a majority of the time, occasionally throwing Shelton to ringside where Randy Orton would pound on him. Benjamin soon gained the advantage, however, and nailed him with what I call, The Shelton Splash. Triple H then fell to ringside. Benjamin followed him out there and surprised Hunter with a slingshot into the corner post. He crawled into the ring for the countout victory. After the match, Evolution attacked Shelton Benjamin. Loyd narrated brief highlights, saying it was disturbing for television. Michaels, Benoit, and Foley made the save, chasing Evolution away. Loyd said that Bischoff was upset that they interfered, so he planned to make them pay later in the evening. Loyd recapped the previous angle, saying that Benoit, Michaels, and Foley would have to face consequences thanks to Bischoff. In the ring, Bischoff informed Foley, Michaels, and Benoit that they would have to team with Shelton Benjamin next week against all four members of Evolution. Triple H then came from the back carrying a sledgehammer as the remaining members of Evolution attacked the men from behind in the ring. Evolution soon gained control, with Hunter nailing Michaels with a sledgehammer shot from behind and connecting on Benoit with a pedigree. Loyd plugged Raw in Chicago this week, with the eight-man tag match main event.moreless
