1.) Backstage, Mean Gene chats with Scott Norton. Gene wants an update from the NWO group, which Norton says is doing fine and dandy. Norton says that the NWO group isn’t in danger of anything. He says that he will make sure the NWO is on top, where they belong.
2.) Backstage, Mean Gene chats with former WCW Cruiserweight Champion Billy Kidman. Gene pokes fun that Kidman doesn’t have the championship, which Kidman had stated was a magnet for the ladies. Kidman gets a rematch against Rey Mysterio Jr. at Spring Stampede. Billy agrees that anyone can win the title in the cruiserweight division after one screwup. Kidman is determined to regain the title from his friend Rey Mysterio Jr.
3.) There isn’t much time left in the show as we get to the main event, so it’s going to be a quick one this week. Very little action takes place thanks to Jericho stalling and playing to the crowd. Saturn takes Jericho over with an overhead belly to belly suplex. Jericho drops Saturn throat first across the top rope and taunts the fans again. Jericho delivers a spin kick in the corner and follows up with a delayed vertical suplex. Jericho leaps off the top but Saturn gets his boots up to hit an exploder suplex. Saturn charges the corner to hit a clothesline and puts his dress over Jericho’s head to hammer away on his rival. Saturn sends Jericho into the referee and that allows Jericho to grab a chain. Saturn ducks the shot and clotheslines Jericho with the chain, which causes the DQ. (1/2*. This was really a filler segment with the feud seemingly being advanced between the two. These two work well together, but they weren’t given the time nor booked to look good in the match.) After the match, Saturn hits the referee with the Death Valley Driver.
There wasn’t much going on here this week. A thumbs down for Saturday Night.
