Benoit's no one hit wonder!
on 27 July 2004
This was Chris Benoit's homecoming after defeateing HBK and HHH at Wrestlemania XX. The main event is a repeat of that triple threat match, only now Benoit is the champ instead of HHH. The ppv itself, a Raw one, is in many ways the Wrestlemania rematch event as many feuds festering from there are continued. The matches are:
Shelton Benjamin vs. Ric Flair (3/5)
Tajiri vs. Jonathan Coachman (2/5)
Chris Jericho vs. Christian & Trish Status (4/5)
Women's Championship Match
Victoria(c) vs. Lita (3/5)
Hardcore match for the Intercontinental Championship
Randy Orton(c) vs. Mick Foley (5/5)
#1 contender for Tag Team title match
The Hurricane & Rosey vs. La Resistance (1/5)
Edge vs. Kane (3/5)
Triple Threat match for the Worls Heavyweight Championship
Chris Benoit(c) vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels (5/5)
I won't ruin anything incase you haven't seen this but it's a pretty solid ppv. The main event is great, although not as good as the Wrestlemania XX one, and the Foley/Orton fight is something else. Mick at his hardcore best and Orton proving he could very well be the next Triple H.
Good to see Benoit getting the reception he deserves as well.
