Thanks for the reviews guys. I will give more detail for my matches in my next show. Hollywood Hogan thanks - During that time period Paul Bearer did most of the talking in promos and Taker didn't talk much, just a few lines that's all. Glad you liked the show.

Also tonight Jim Ross will conduct an interview with Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit.

What will Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels do to gain an edge before their Iron Man Match encounter at Backlash?
Christian looks to get the advantage going into Backlash as Eric Bischoff has forced Chris Jericho to compete in a gauntlet match against La Resistance. Will Jericho be able to overcome the odds or will Christian gain the upper hand over Jericho?
We saw Eugene’s debut last week and William Regal’s return but what will Eugene get up to this week?
Plus Lance Storm wants to prove to Ric Flair that last week was not a fluke, tonight Storm will take on the legendary Ric Flair. Will Storm upset Flair or will Flair prove that Lance Storm is indeed a joke.
