Tuesday Night Fever
Shawn Michaels vs Randy Savage Cage Match
Batista In Action
Rematch: Haas vs Angle
Mickie James vs Trish Stratus
AJ Styles vs Edge
Styles put on a good showing, but a huge momentum shift was the key. Styles went for a diving cross body and Edge caught him with a spear.
After the match, the Hardy Boys attacked Edge in the ring. Matt gave him the Twist of Fate, then Jeff topped it off with the Swanton.
Immediately after that, Randy Orton sent out Priceless, and they disposed of Matt and Jeff with chair shots.
Backstage: Randy Orton was in Shane McMahon's office and demanded payback on Matt and Jeff's attack on Edge. Shane O suggested that the Hardys' attack was a display of hungry challengers. He made a match between the Hardys and Priceless. The winners will compete for the Radical Tag Titles.
Orton was livid. "Im going to Steph with this issue, Shane. And do not forget Edge and I do have a match against the Hardys' at Retribution" Orton storms off looking for Steph.
Alex Shelley vs Batista
Just like his match with Sabin, Batista destroys Shelley in 36 seconds; delivering a spine buster, and a spear for the three count.
As soon as the match was over, The Rock's music hits and he came blazing to the ring. Shane and Batista fled the scene to make sure they do not get hurt.
Kurt Angle vs Charlie Haas
Winner: Charlie Haas
With Kurt Angle furious at the fact Charlie Haas beat him last week, he wanted a rematch. This match turned out to be a better technical showing than the last one.
End result: Karen Angle had the ref distracted while Kurt Angle grabbed brass knucks from his tights. The Red Rooster then came out and nailed Angle in the head with the ring bell. Haas then delivered his new finisher: Charlie's Angel; an angel-like moonsault off the top rope.
Backstage: Randy Orton went into Stephanie's office and explained to her how Matt and Jeff do not deserve tag team gold. He insisted that the titles should be handed to Rated RKO after they slaughter the Hardy Boys.
"You know what Randy, you just gave me a good idea. Since my brother made a number one contender match for the Radical Tag Titles, I will make one as well. It will take place on Thursday Night Fever, and it will include Rated RKO vs The Motor City Machine Guns. Now excuse me, I have announcement to make."
Stephanie's Announcement: Thursday Night Fever has a big main event. It will be John Cena vs the "Icon" Sting. The winner will be the fifth qualifier for the six-man match at Retribution.
Mickie James vs Trish Stratus
A five minute display of quickness and alot of counters. Towards the end of the match, Trish went for the Stratusfaction, but Mickie countered into a back suplex that dropped Stratus on her neck. She added a bridge to the suplex and got the pinfall victory.
Priceless vs Hardy Boys
Cody Rhodes went for the CrossRhodes on Jeff Hardy, but it was countered into Jeff's version of the Twist of Fate, followed by Matt Hardy's leg drop.
Randy Orton then came out with Edge and they attack the Hardys. Edge fed Jeff the spear, and then Randy Orton drove Matt Hardy's skull into the canvas with the RKO.
Main Event: HBK Shawn Michaels vs "Macho Man" Randy Savage: Steel Cage
This was a brutal cage match. Both men were busted open during the course of the match. Savage gave Michaels a DDT on the chair he snuck into the match, and Michaels used the same chair later and hit Savage in the head mutiple times.
Savage delivers a low blow and then a piledriver to HBK. Then he climbed the cage and drops the elbow from 15 feet! One. Two. Three.
