Full WWE Sunday Night Heat Results - 5/11/03
Hosted by: Jonathan Coachman and Al Snow
Reported by: Dave Missert of WrestleView.com

Happy Sunday everyone, and welcome to Sunday Night Heat. I know it’s been about two weeks since my last recap, and I apologize. Two weeks ago was the PPV and not much happening on Heat, and last week my cable was out. But I’m back and ready for another episode of everyone’s favorite ‘B’ show. Let’s get to it.

This is my first time hearing Al Snow as a replacement for Lita, so I’m anxious to hear how he does, and now onto the show.

HEAT RECAP

Victoria (w/ Steven Richards) vs. Jacqueline
Fit Finlay’s trainees start off with some basic mat maneuvers as Victoria goes on the offensive early. Victoria with a snap suplex followed by a missed top rope jump roll move. Vicky with a powerslam and a kick out by Jackie. Jackie turns the tides with a flying head scissors and a flapjack. Jackie with some kicks to the chest of Victoria as she falls out of the ring. Stevie tries to interfere but Jackie nails him. Sunset flip by Jackie that gets reversed by Victoria, and with some help from Stevie, gains the pinfall victory over Jacqueline.

Winner by pinfall: Victoria

Steven Richards (w/Victoria) vs. Maven
As soon as we return from commercial, Steven Richards is still in the ring, and his match with Maven is next.

Collar-elbow tie up to start, followed by a slam from Maven. Richards is selling some back pain, and then the two exchange slaps. Roll-up by Maven comboed with a deep arm drag. Woo-chop by Stevie as he takes the lead with a neckbreaker and a cover for a two count. Sitting full nelson by Steven, but Maven breaks the hold with some elbows to the jaw. Maven takes control and hits a nice spinning heel kick for a two-count cover. Richards dodges some punches from Maven and lays on the Stevie Kick. He places Maven on the top rope, and here comes Jackie? Jackie takes out Victoria and Steven Richards as Maven hits the missle drop-kick for the win.

Winner by pinfall: Maven

- Highlights from RAW
Highlights of Chris Jericho’s highlight reel are shown, complete with the street fight between Kevin Nash and Triple H.

Chris Nowinski vs. Mark Bartolucci
Nowinski steps into the ring and picks on Bartolucci and tells him that he has no chance of beating him tonight. Mammoth clothesline by Nowinski to start the match, followed by a two count and some kicks to the head of Bartolucci. Spine buster by Nowinski for the three count.

Winner by spine buster: Chris Nowinski

Chris Jericho vs. The Hurricane
The match opens with Hurricane extending his hand to Jericho in a show of sportsmanship. Jericho declines and they lock up. Arm bar by Jericho followed by a punch from the Hurricane. Hurricane goes on the offensive and hits a nice clothesline. He tosses Jericho over the top rope and leaps over the top rope onto Jericho, who was waiting on the floor. Jericho backs himself into a corner, and pulls the ref in front of him. Hurricane removes the ref from Jericho’s clutches and goes on the offensive. Jericho distracts the ref by attempting to remove the turnbuckle cover, and then chokes the Hurricane with his wrist tape. Jericho locks on a rear chinlock, but the Hurricane breaks the hold and rolls up Jericho for a two count. Clothesline by Jericho, and he tells us that he is the King of the World. Tilt-a-whirl head scissors by Hurricane, followed by a neckbreaker and a two count. Hurricane attempts the shining wizard, but Jericho dodges, hits a bulldog, misses the Lion Sault, tries to lock on the Walls of Jericho, but Hurricane rolls him up in a small package for a two count in some extremely fast action. Hurricane hits the Hurra-Slam and goes for the cover, but Jericho gets his foot on the rope to break the pin. Hurricane tries for a high cross body, but Jericho rolls him over, and locks in the Walls of Boston Crab as Hurricane taps out.

Winner by submission: Chris Jericho


HEAT COMMENTARY

Victoria (w/Steven Ricahrds) vs. Jacqueline
Not a bad match for a women’s opener. These ladies really are improving everyday as far as I’m concerned. Victoria has a great look, and really plays the roll of the crazy chick to a tee. I think her having to use Steven Richards to help her win didn’t do much for her, as I think it’s far more believable if she were to gain a clean win.

Steven Richards (w/Victoria) vs. Maven
Nothing too spectacular in this one, as it was mainly mat maneuvers with no real spots. Not much to get excited about, and I don’t understand why we had to introduce Jackie into this one. Are she and Maven going to start a budding romance? I’m really digging Al Snow as an announcer. I like the way he’s been busting on Coach about getting fired and Stunned last week on Raw.

Highlights from Raw
The confrontation between Kevin Nash and Triple H are shown. I can’t believe that they wasted 15 minutes on this crap. Triple H must have been taking blading lessons from Ric Flair, as he made sure that blood was all over his hair during this street fight piece of garbage. This was so awful I choose not to discuss it anymore. Austin was pretty funny when he was talking to Jericho at the end though. I really like his new on screen role.

Chris Harvard vs. Mark Bartolucci
Very very short and useless match that was finished in less than two minutes. Al Snow talked about how cocky Nowinski is and how he doesn’t listen to him. I’m also very curious as to why these Tough Enough kids aren’t given real finishers. Come on, Maven gets a missile dropkick and Nowinski gets a spinebuster? That’s just horrible.

Backstage
Terri for some reason is wearing a flight suit. She’s interviewing the Hurricane and he cuts a very funny promo about fighting crime and the forces of evil. When he says, “stand back” and puts his arms out, he grabs a handful of Terri’s silicon booby. Lucky boy. That was pretty funny stuff.

Highlights from Raw
Goldberg’s match from Raw is shown, and he shows his dominance by destroying the interference from Rico and Three Minute Warning. Austin’s beer bash is also shown, in a surreal moment where he stood face to face in the ring with Steve Austin and shared several Molson Exports together. I really enjoyed the beer bash, especially since they were drinking the product that I sell everyday. How great was it to see Austin drinking beer again? It was especially cool when he was swimming in the beer on the mat.

Hurricane vs. Chris Jericho
Wow that was a great match. I can’t believe that a match of that quality was relegated to Heat. Hurricane has looked really good in these last few months, and I’m really happy that they are bringing back the IC belt. I think Helms will make a good IC champ someday, and will really give him something to work towards. Jericho was on his game as usual, proving that along with Kurt Angle, he’s among the best in the business. That was a damn good match, and was definitely the best thing we’ve seen on Heat in a very long time.

All in all, Heat was decent this week, and was made extra decent with the main event, featuring a match that should’ve been shown on Raw. The women’s match was good as far as women’s matches go, the two Tough Enough matches were alright, and the main event was spectacular. Al Snow impressed me throughout the show, and I think he’ll make a great addition to the announcing staff. That’s all for this week, I’ll see everyone on Saturday for a special Dave Miz review of Velocity. We’ll call it the two week Dave Miz weekend recap tour. Until next time……
