Page 3 of 5
In a locker room, Chuck was stretching for his title match
on SmackDown! when Billy entered the room. Billy said that
since it was the Fourth of July, they were going to have a
picnic right there. Billy then produced a couple hot dogs and
the two started munching down before Rico showed up. Rico was
furious that the duo were eating junk food and not preparing
for their Tag Team Championship Match against Hogan and Edge.
The Tag Team Championship was on the line, as Billy and Chuck
defended their title against Edge and Hogan, who made his way
to the ring accompanied by his "Real American" theme
song, an American flag and red, white and blue feather boas!
Chuck gained control with a double-arm suplex on Edge midway
through the match. Billy tagged in and followed with another
suplex and got a two-count. Billy held Edge outside the ring
while Chuck distracted the ref, allowing Rico to get involved.
Rico aimed a kick at Edge, who moved and watched Billy take
the brunt of the kick!
Edge continued to fight. He hit Chuck with a facebuster and
managed to tag in his partner. Hogan dropped both Billy and
Chuck with right hands to the head. He then smashed the
champs' heads together and nailed a Big Boot to Billy. Hogan
went to hit the leg drop, but Chuck thwarted the attempt with
a superkick! Hogan struggled to his feet and tagged in Edge,
who leaped off the top rope and hit a double clothesline. Rico
once again got involved, tripping Edge from outside the ring.
This time, the Hulkster grabbed the stylist and planted him
onto the ring apron. Hogan and Edge teamed up in the ring to
each hit a Big Boot on Chuck then crashed down with a pair of
leg drops which allowed Edge to get the pin! Edge and Hulk
Hogan are the new Tag Team Champions! The new champs
celebrated with a waving flag and the arena singing along to
Hogan's "Real American" theme song.
Chris Jericho took on WWE newcomer John Cena, who was
competing in front of a hometown crowd in Boston. Cena took
down Y2J and delivered a series of right hands to the head.
Cena catapulted Jericho into the turnbuckle and smashed him
with a facebuster. Jericho fled the ring to regroup and Cena
followed, only to be struck down with a tough clothesline.
Back in the ring, Cena countered Jericho's axe handle from the
top rope with a drop kick. A bulldog got him a two count. Cena
almost got himself in trouble, but managed to reverse Y2J's
attempt at the Walls of Jericho into a rollup that again got a
two-count. Cena got another two count after a spinebuster soon
after. Cena fought hard, but in the end Jericho cracked Cena
with a Flashback and put his feet on the ropes to get leverage
for the pinfall! After the match, Jericho held out his hand
but smacked Cena when he went to shake it. Cena retaliated by
whirling Jericho into a spinning body slam that caused Jericho
to tumble out of the ring.
