Lesnar rules
By KEN WIEBE -- Winnipeg Sun


Brock Lesnar tapped out again, but it didn't cost him the gold.

Lesnar was able to defend his WWE heavyweight title by applying his patented F5 finishing move after knocking out the referee and smoking Kurt Angle with his championship belt before a crowd of roughly 6,000 fans at Winnipeg Arena last night.

After threatening to vacate the premises without putting his title on the line, Lesnar finally got in the ring and the two WWE superstars -- who endured a one hour marathon match against one another two Thursdays ago -- didn't disappoint.

Late in the match -- after Angle already had Lesnar down for the count with nobody there to count the fall -- the former U.S. Olympian applied the ankle-lock to Lesnar in the middle of the ring and would have reclaimed the championship belt if the referee hadn't been knocked out of commission.

KNOCKED SILLY

Conveniently, the ref came to just in time to deliver the three-count after Angle had been knocked silly.

In one of the most exciting matches of the evening, Los Guerreros successfully defended their WWE tag team titles against the Basham Brothers.

Eddie and Chavo Guerrero showcased their high-flying talents against the up-and-comers and earned a fall after Eddie landed a Frogsplash from the top rope.

Unfortunately the match was marred by an incident involving a fan who spilled a beer on Eddie Guerrero, who had initially been knocked into the railing by one of the Basham Brothers.

The unruly fan was escorted from the building.

Tajiri spit green mist into the eyes of Rey Mysterio to turn the tide of the match and allow him to deliver a Buzzsaw Kick and hold onto his cruiserweight title.

WWE diva Sable opened up the show by saying owner Vince McMahon would not be attending and that she was in charge.

John Cena then came out, grabbed the microphone and launched an attack on the crowd.

His verbal assault included a shot at the departed Winnipeg Jets and prompted Chris Benoit to challenge Cena in an unscheduled bout pitting Canada versus the United States.

Benoit, who calls Edmonton home, failed on a high-risk head-butt from the top rope but eventually regrouped and forced Cena to submit.

Newcomer Orlando Jordan showed some promise and nearly earned an upset victory before he was nailed by a Gore spear from Rhyno, which signalled the end and led to an easy pinfall.

In other matches, Bradshaw connected with a big clothesline that helped him earn a fall over A-Train, Shaniqua took down Dawn Marie and Nidia in a handicapped match, Nunzio gained additional leverage from the ropes as he beat Jamie Noble and Matt Hardy used the Twist of Fate to help him and Jamie Shannon defeat Spanky and Paul London.
