WWE invades Kitchener
By DEVIN CUTTING - For SLAM! Wrestling


Howard Finkle started the show about announcing that \"Stone Cold\" Steve Austin reinstated The Dudley Boyz. The arena was between 2/3 and 3/4 full. Almost everything got a reaction from the wild fans.

Spike Dudley defeated Steven Richards. After the match, Steven and Rico pounded Spike until The Dudley Boyz made the save. The Dudley Boyz then challenged Rico and 3 Minute Warning to a handicap match.

The Dudley Boyz defeated Rico and 3 Minute Warning. Throughout the match, fans chanted \"We Want Tables\" and \"Rico Is Gay\". After Rico received a flying headbutt to the groin, he held his pants open and talked to his male parts. Bubba Ray possibly suffered some kind of injury, either to his wrist or stomach, as he appeared to be in a lot of pain following the match.

Rodney Mack defeated Tommy Dreamer. The fans did not care about the match at all and even chanted \"boring\" while Mack made his entrance. Teddy Long did his normal pre-match rant and interfered a lot.

La Resistance defeated Maven and The Hurricane. Whomever designed La Resistance\'s ring attire needs to be fired immediately. The tights were black with yellow stripes down the sides and red, white & blue ribbons along the top. Before the match, La Resistance cut a promo in french until they remembered that Ontario is part of english-speaking Canada.

Jazz defeated Trish Stratus, Victoria and Jacqueline in a 4 Corners Match to retain the WWE Women\'s Title. Surprisingly, Victoria got a huge face pop when she entered the arena. The match was short, which the fans did not like.

During the intermission, 2 of the referees signed autographs and posed for photos at ringside.

Rob Van Dam and Kane defeated Chief Morley and Lance Storm to retain the World Tag Team Titles. Fans chanted \"RVD\" many times throughout the match. At one point, Lance tagged out as Kane entered the ring and Morley looked angry about having to face Kane. Unlike when Nitro was held in Kitchener a few years ago, the fans did not pop for Lance, who went to college in Kitchener.

Scott Steiner defeated Christian. Prior to the match, a posedown ensued and Christian fell while trying to climb the ropes. The fans did not care that he is Canadian and booed him.

Test defeated Chris Jericho in a Street Fight. A huge pop welcomed Jericho when he entered the arena, but turned into booing as soon as he opened his mouth. After watching Jericho shout at fans and pose for several minutes, Test surprised everyone by dropping his tights and mooning Jericho. The match went all over the building, including to a part of the arena where the floor was not cover. Jericho took the bare back bump on the ice, then fell again when he tried to stand up. Christian interfered, but was not a factor in the outcome of the match. Stacy Keibler helped Test win by causing distractions. After the match, Jericho said that he will never return to Kitchener and insulted the Toronto Maple Leafs.
