Maven vs. Steve Fender
This match was a pretty good opener. I think that Maven is getting better every week. Iím willing to admit when Iím wrong, as a few months ago I had no use for Maven. He is still lacking something, but his in-ring work is definitely improving. The local guy looked pretty good in there, as he was able to showcase a little bit of offense.
Steven Richards RULES. He has promoted Al Stoned to the Heat exclusive interviewer! Victoria is getting crazier by the week, as this week she was wearing a shower cap and bathrobe, dancing around the table saying that she was Godzilla. That was a great segment.
Steven Richards vs. Tommy Dreamer
Pretty solid match from the two former ECW performers. Iím a big Tommy Dreamer fan, and anytime he gets to wrestler is a plus. That was a great finish, as he kissed Victoria, but walked right into a Stevie Kick.
Why do they shove Randy Orton down our throats? He has no place being put in the main event at the second biggest PPV of the year. Hopefully he wonít be embarrassed.
Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade vs. Slater Vain and Ken Anderson
Jindrak and Cade need a hook of some sort, because right now they are extremely boring. Maybe they should call themselves, the Worldís Boringest Tag Team. Jindrak is rapidly becoming the king of the dropkick, because that seems to be just about the only move that he utilizes.
Val Venis vs. Test
Wow! This was a really good match, with both guys showing some impressive in-ring work. There was some great story telling from both Val and Test. You know, Iím not really a big fan of Test, the guy just doesnít get over, but this match proved that he does have some really solid in-ring abilities. Oh yeah, and Val rules too.
Overall, Heat was alright tonight. I have to send out a very important e-mail right now, so Iíll have to cut my comments short, so Iím signing off for tonight and Iíll see you all at SummerSlam.
