Ottawa show headlined by Nash, Triple H
By TIM BAINES -- Ottawa Sun


On the heels of a slow-paced Backlash pay-per-view, the WWE action will be hot today at the Corel Centre.

With a 2 p.m. start, the show (which has undergone several changes in the past couple of weeks) will now be headlined by Triple H vs. Kevin Nash.

Other matches include Test (with lovely and leggy Stacy) vs. Chris Jericho with street-fight rules; Rob Van Dam and Kane vs. Chief Morley and Lance Storm; Christian vs. Scott Steiner (we suspect Orangeville's own Jason Reso, Christian, will get the majority of the cheers here); Tommy Dreamer vs. Rodney Mack (with Teddy Long); Spike Dudley vs. Steven Richards; Jackie vs. Victoria vs. Jazz (with Al Snow as ref); The Hurricane and Maven vs. La Resistance (Rene Dupre and Sly Grenier); and Bubba and Devon Dudley vs. Rosey and Jamal (with Rico).

- Here's a scoop: Look for RAW in Montreal July 7 and Smackdown! in Toronto July 8. Montreal is also in line for a house show early in November.

- Miss Elizabeth (Elizabeth Heulette) died suddenly early Thursday morning in Georgia. The former wife of Macho Man Randy Savage was living with boyfriend Larry Pfohl (Lex Luger). Police have ruled out foul play. Luger got into trouble, though, when he was arrested for violation of the controlled substances act, according to The Wrestling Observer's Dave Meltzer.

- Results from Backlash: Goldberg beat The Rock after three spears and a jackhammer; Triple H (with his trusty sledgehammer), Ric Flair and Jericho beat Nash, Shawn Michaels and Booker T; Brock Lesnar beat John Cena; Jazz won the women's title over Trish Stratus; The Big Show beat Rey Mysterio; Kane and Van Dam beat The Dudley Boyz (Bubba was accidentally speared by Morley); Team Angle beat Los Guerreros (who stole the tag titles and raced out of the arena); and Sean O'Haire beat Rikishi, who smashed a coconut over the head of Rowdy Roddy Piper.

- Mr. America made his Smackdown! debut ... and sure enough, it's Hulk Hogan, much to the chagrin of Vince McMahon.

- Stone Cold Steve Austin is back -- as the co-GM of RAW, along with Eric Bischoff.

- Y2J is the maestro of the new RAW weekly Chris Jericho's Hi-Lite Reel. Special guest last Monday was Goldberg. Christian organized an anti-Goldberg faction, which included Jamal, Rosey, Rico, Victoria and Richards, who was speared for his trouble. Booker T threw his support behind Goldberg. Christian taunted the Boston fans on hand: "Your baseball team hasn't won a damn thing since 1918."

- La Resistance made its RAW debut, prompting another gem from Jerry Lawler: "I'm not a fan of France. I don't even eat french fries anymore."

- Props to The Hurricane for mocking Morley's former Val Venis character.

- Morley has suspended The Dudleys again.
