Episode Summary

Episode 76
(1) Edge & Shelton Benjamin & Tajiri beat Triple H & Randy Orton & Batista when Edge pinned Orton. Edge was being worked over by Evolution as this match started. He battled back and managed to get the better of Triple H before making the hot tag to Tajiri. Tajiri's kicks were awesome and Evolution sold it perfectly as he worked on all three men. Batista managed to counter a hand-spring elbow into a clothesline to the back of the head to end Tajiri's momentum. Tajiri continued to get worked on by all three members of Evolution. They made quick tags and cut him off from making his way to the corner. He did get a quick backslide on Triple H for a two-count, but Hunter quickly pounded him down and tagged out to Orton. Randy locked on a rear chinlock. Tajiri managed to counter a sunset flip attempt by sliding out of it and kicking Orton in the back of the head. Orton's expression was priceless. He then tagged in Edge who went to work on all three men. The match degenerated into a six-man brawl with Benjamin nailing Batista with a splash in the corner and clothesline out of the ring. Meanwhile, Orton set Edge up for the RKO. Tajiri entered the ring, however, and nailed Orton with a kick to the midsection. Batista returned and set Tajiri up for a powerbomb, but he countered with green mist to the eyes. Batista rolled around on the mat, and Orton went to check on him. When Randy turned around, Edge was there with a spear for the three-count Highlights aired of Rob Conway defeating Hurricane last Monday on Raw, followed by Conway's promo against Eugene. Loyd said that Eugene just wanted to have fun with La Resistance, but now he has to be serious as he has his first match on Monday. He said that William Regal put him through a training session last week on Raw. Regal and Eugene were in the training facility in Stamford, CT, when Regal told Eugene that he was going to prepare him for his wrestling match. He demonstrated simple moves, which Eugene had no problem emulating. They then practiced chain wrestling, and Eugene was able to take Regal to the mat and make him tap out. I think it would have been hilarious to save this for his actual "debut" against Conway, but it was still a fun segment. The Eugene character continues to grow on me. He really has lightened up Raw. (2) Chris Benoit pinned Shawn Michaels to retain the World Heavyweight Championship. Michaels was in control as this match started. He nailed Benoit with a flying elbow, but Benoit countered the superkick into a series of German suplexes. After connecting with four, Benoit went up for a flying headbutt attempt, but Michaels moved. Shawn only got a two count as he went for the cover. They exchanged offensive moves, with Benoit ending up on the floor. Shawn connected with a moonsault to ringside, leaving both men lying. Loyd recapped what has occurred in the match, and then plugged it one more time before returning us to the conclusion. Benoit took over offense shortly after the match was rejoined. He locked Shawn in two Crippler Crossfaces, but each time Shawn got to the ropes. Benoit then tried to lock him in the sharpshooter, but Shawn kicked off and Benoit collided with the ref. With the official down, Shawn climbed to his feet and nailed Benoit with a superkick. Before he could make the cover, however, Triple H entered the ring and nailed Michaels with the Pedigree. Benoit crawled over to Shawn and made the pinfall.moreless
