8-Ball gets a nice pop. Shamrock gets some major heat. 8-Ball brawls with Shamrock on the rampway and suplexes him on the ramp. Shamrock holds his back in agony. 8-Ball picks a trash can from under the ring and the crowd errupts. 8-Ball cracks it on Shamrocks head putting a major dent in the bin. Shamrock is bleeding and is thrown back in the ring and covered for 2. 8-Ball whips Shamrock to the ropes but Shamrock comes back and chops out 8-Balls leg. Shamrock controls the leg for about 10 minutes! but cannot put 8-Ball away. This frustrates Shamrock who waves to the back and out comes Buff Bagwell, and the wrestling returns of the Big Bossman and Test! They all mug 8-Ball until the old DOA( Disciples of Apocalypse ) music hits and out come Chainz, Skull and Crush on motorbikes, armed with lead pipes. They enter the ring and clean house. 8-Ball and Chainz deliver a double DDT on Shamrock as Skull and Crush watch to make sure no one hops back in to interfere. 8-Ball covers 1-2-3!

Roger- Jericho how do feel being entered in the WIWA Heavyweight Tournament, but you still hold the International title? Whats going on?
Y2J- Well you see Rog, Y2J is going to become the first ever dual champion in our buisness, and all the Jerichoholics will be behind Y2J all the way!
Y2J walks off

Orton gets a huge pop, Angle gets some major heat and the usual you suck chants as well. Both men lock it up and Orton gets the advantage and takes down Angle with an armbar. Couple of armdrags then back to the armbar. Orton flips up and Angle rolls out of the ring. Angle looks in disbelief as Orton tanuts and the crowd goes wild. Angle comes at Orton from behind but Orton has it scouted and whacks Angle with a clothesline. 1-2- Angle gets the shoulders up. Orton hits a german suplex on Angle, then a second, then a third with a bridge, it almost gets the 3! Orton then does a suplex and then a belly to belly and Angle rolls out of the ring again holding his back and staring at Orton in disbelief! Orton taunts Angle to come get him some and Angle says NO and starts to walk up the ramp. The ref counts to 10 and Orton wins via count out. As Orton climbs the buckle and taunts Angle comes back down with a steel chair and viciously assaults the leg of Orton, crushing it with another chair, then putting on the angelock before giving Orton the Olympic Slam! Angle walks up the ramp with an evil smile on his face as the EMT's come down to attend to bloodied and bruised Orton.
Match Time: 3m 18s
WINNER: Randy Orton via countout
Orton is put on a stretcher and taken backstage for further treatment. The crowd is dead silenced and give Orton a standing ovation as he is stretchered off.
JR: I cant believe that Kurt Angle, just because someone out wrestles you at the start of a match dosent give you the right to do what he did to Orton, Orton may not make it Friday in his condition!
King: I'll agree with you there JR, but why did Angle get counted out in the first place, he had a chance to win that match and advance.
JR: Its just poor sportsmanship and the lack of goodness inside that man.
