Sunday Night” Heat had no pyro, no introduction, and no announcers:
Brent Albright and Kevin Fertig (billed as Albright and Fertig) beat a couple of local jobbers.
Rosey beat Russell Simpson
Chris Masters beat Jared (? couldn’t hear his last name)
Viscera beat Val Venis
Gene Snitsky beat Rhyno
Batista called HHH and Flair back to the ring for a handicap match. HBK came to the ring and said that two against one isn’t fair, but not necessarily in favor of HHH and Flair. He superkicked Flair and “announced” a one-on-one match between Batista and HHH.
Batista (with Shawn Michaels) beat HHH (with Ric Flair) with the Batista Bomb. Batista was WAY over with the audience, and after the match he shook hands and signed autographs with folks in the first few rows before finally heading up the ramp and backstage.
Overall it was a fairly decent show – I was expecting a little more action leading up to Wrestlemania, though. People were completely dead for the arm wrestling “contest” and the triple threat tag team match, but the opening six-man tag match got everyone pretty fired up.
