Opening Sequence, Music, Fireworks, (Yada Yada Yada, we've all seen it before)
ROSEY vs. STEVEN RICHARDS
Richards and the WWE resident superhero open the match with basic headlocks and armbars. Surprisingly, the first few minutes had some impressive reversals. The two then break into a game of "Rosey is bigger then Stevie". With Richards attempting shoulderblocks, clotheslines and pushes to Rosey's chest, only for the big man to shrug it all off, pushing Richards to the ground with ease. Richards then begins to work on the leg, a good idea against a big man. While in a side leg lock, Rosey clutched, clawed and tried his best to get out. At one point, Richards even booted his opponent in the head to keep him down. Rosey punched his way out, and got to his feet, knocking Richards down several times with punches. Briefly, Richards fought back, mounting the top rope and trying a cross body block. Unfortunatley Rosey caught Steven in mid-air, slammed him to the mat and mounted the second rope himself. Delivering an impressive leg drop and covering Richards for the pin.

RODNEY MACK w/ Jazz vs. MIKE MONDO
Rodney Mack started this match just plain bullying and outpowering Mondo. Mondo tries just about everything to overtake Mack. Even trying a shoulder tackle which sent Mondo himself to the canvas instead. Mondo did have his moments. Using an impressive series of armdrags to take Mack down. Unfortunatly for Mondo, he got thrown from the ring where Jazz got her un-necessary, but stiff none the less shots. Upon his re-entry, Mondo was subject to more bullying and stiff shots from Mack. After kickign out on two occasions, Mack mounted Mondo and rained down with hard punches. Mondo did come back with one last grasp, punching, kicking and dropkicking Rodney, before being cut off. At which point Rodney Mack decided he was done playing with his opponent. Delivered a DDT while Mondo was on his knees and pinned his over matched foe.
WINNER: RODNEY MACK

SLAM OF THE WEEK
Two weeks ago on Raw. Edge steals a win after Shawn Micheals delivers Sweet Chin Music.
From last week on Raw. Triple threat match with Edge-Chris Benoit-Shawn Micheals
-Triple H provided commentary for this match.
-This match is where HBK hurts his knee. And you can certainly tell that Micheals is a step behind on his flying forearm, nip-up, atomic drop and even Sweet Chin Music.
-End comes when Edge misses the spear, Benoit attempts the crossface, tries to roll up Edge who reverses, and holds the tights and top rope to secure the win.
Taboo Tuesday SHAWN MICHEALS vs TRIPLE H
-Still shots of the match. Including Edge attacking Micheals to give HHH the win.
ROBERT CONWAY w/Sylvain Grenier vs. MAVEN
After a feeling out process, culminating with a slam by Conway. Maven handed out a loud and hard slap for Conway's troubles. The two traded kicks and punches, threw in a headlock or two, and each man attempted some quick falls. Conway tried to throw Maven out, but Maven landed on his feet on the apron. Grenier tried to grab Maven, but was thwarted. Conway finished teh job, knocking Maven to the floor while he was distracted. While Conway kept the ref occupied, Grenier attacked Maven, getting the shots he hoped for earlier in. Once back in the ring, Conway clamped Maven down with a chinlock, attempting to wear the Tough Enough champion down. Once up, Maven and Conway exchanged some more punches, culminating with a Maven dropkick and back drop. Grenier took a swipe at Maven with the Quebec flag, but was blocked and had the flag taken away. Maven took a couple swipes at Conway before the referee took it and took quite a long time to put it outside the ring. Grenier ran in attacked and helped his La Resistance partner put Maven down with the "Au Revoir", to gain Conway a victory.
WINNER: ROBERT CONWAYCOUPLE SHOTS OF MOONSHINE
-I'd rather see some more wrestling on Heat. Let it be more of a platform for the under-undercard wrestlers. The guys that you very rarely see on Raw. I liked seeing Stevie, Maven, Rodney Mack and Chuck Palumbo last week. I wouldn't mind seeing more of the guys we may not have even eard of. Give Mike Mondo a match with someone his speed. I'd rather see even matched wrestling then squash matches.
-Speaking of Steven Richards. I'd like to see them push this "GM of Heat" angle. Have him make a trade with Velocity or something. Make him Bischoff's assistant (unwanted or otherwise)
-Rosey (wheather I like the superhero gimmick or not) is one of the best big men going today.
MAVEN - The body is looking tight. And McMahon likes the bodies. Remember, he's an avid body builder himself. Maven WILL get pushed soon enough.
LOOK OUT BELOW
La RESISTANCE - I like these guys. Two good wrestlers who break up the monotny of over the top gimmicks on Raw. But I can't help but see them fading away, like The Basham Brothers on Smackdown. Here's to hoping they don't. But I wouldn't be surprised.
