Report for 411 by Sean “Beantown” McCluskey
Six Man Tag tonight: Dudz & Tazz Vs Taker, Kane, and Tajiri
Also Angle & Austin Vs Booker T & Rhyno tonight!
Here comes Shane-O Mac to kick off the show. All the WCW cronies are tagging along behind. Now Stephanie, who looks nicely big breasted tonight, Heyman, and ECW head out to accompany Shane & Co. Odd how Shane and Vince can just totally switch places as far as being a face or heel. Shane talks about he and Steph’s investment. Steph has the mic… barf. She asks if we think Freddie Blassie or SCSA could make a difference against them. Blassie got a nicer pop than Austin! Paul says that Vince was the reason his Father died. JR goes off in the middle of Heyman talking, calling him a liar. Heyman says that he wants to bring back wrestling, and wants to take down sports entertainment.
We see Vince watching this in his office. Jericho enters and he wonders if Vince heard what he said to Steph on Raw. Jericho repeats it, and Vince says he’s a little bothered by it. He says you should’ve called her… I can’t remember all of that, somewhere along the lines of a sleazy, dirty, bottom feeding, tramp! HA! The crowd goes nuts! Vince tells Jericho to take care of DDP tonight… “junior”! Vince and Y2J shake hands. Nice segment there.
Commercials… Saw Scary Movie 2 yesterday. I didn’t like it much… Worth seeing once I guess…
DDP Vs Y2J
For those keeping score at home, Nick Patrick is our ref…
