LOD went to a no-decision with William Regal and Paul Burchill when it turned into a brawl involving other teams.
Booker T beat Chris Benoit to win the US Title. Sharmell hit Benoit in the jewels (which Booker didn’t see) to set up the pin. After the match, Booker and Sharmell were celebrating when Benoit came up and asked her why she did what she did. She blew him off and of course, Booker didn’t think she did anything.
Bob Orton claimed his back was injured so he couldn’t work in the tag match with his son against Batista and Eddie Guerrero later in the night. Teddy Long said Randy better find a partner or he’s gonna wrestle the two men by himself.
Matt Hardy debuted on Smackdown by beating Simon Dean. Hardy just wrestled, no promo.
Rey Mysterio and JBL went to a no contest when Edge interfered. Chris Masters came down too. This was to set up the Raw vs. Smackdown feud.
Bobby Lashley crushed Vito.
Palmer Cannon did a bit with Long where he introduced Mexican luchadors for the new division.
Bob Holly beat Sylvain.
Randy Orton picked Mr. Kennedy to be his partner for the main event. The heels lost by DQ when Bob Orton came out and helped them beat down Eddie and Batista, so next week it will be the three heels vs. the two faces, plus Roddy Piper.
Batista then beat Orton in the TV main event.
