Chris Benoit vs. Booker T w/ Sharmell

Sharmell comes out and thanks the crowd for the ovation, she announces for Booker's entrance, claiming he is the greatest U.S. Champion ever. Benoit follows with a huge pop form the British crowd.

We start with Booker trash talking, both men dance around and finally meet in a classic collar and elbow tie up, back and forth moves early, a slow start as both men know each other very well, they trade a few chops only for Booker to get the upper hand with a knee to the stomach.

Each ref was counting for a different man they argue over who was actually pinned Teddy Long has come down and says he's not sure who one, and wants to see the replay, still unsure, Sharmell grabs the mic and says that when there is a tie, the champion gets to retain, Long agrees and says Benoit is not champion, BUT neither is Booker T, he announces a Best of Seven Series, much like there's from WCW, and the first match will be at Survivor Series.


Backstage a security guard is leading JBL to a van, JBL thinks it is Shawn Micheals and team Raw, he opens it to find the Boogeyman, with a spoon full of medicine, he sings about it for a while and breaks a clock over his head, JBL walks off like he saw, well, the Boogeyman.
