The show opens with Joey Styles and Jerry Lawler talking about Ric Flair's arrest this past week in a case of road rage. They also hype Ric as the first guest of Edge's new segment, The Cutting Edge.
Vince McMahon's music hits, and we watch as he drives a garbage truck out to the ring. Once in the ring, which has an executive chair on a podium and a pair of podiums, he talks of taking out the trash, with regards to Eric Bishcoff's failure last week. He introduces Bischoff to the ring, who makes his way slowly down the entrance way. Vince pleads for his job, claiming to have such love for the business. Vince then says tonight is the Trial of Eric Bischoff, with himself as judge. Eric's defense is to be performed by Jonathan Coachman. Coach tries to allay any fears Eric may have. Coach then makes his opening statement, calling Eric an @$$hole. Saying that he has to be that way in order to deliver the finest in sports entertainment. The prosecution is Mick Foley, who comes down all in black, carrying a Batman lunch box. Mick states that Eric helped Raw back in WCW, when he gave away the finish to a Mankind championship match, which signified a change in the ratings war.
Match 1 is a tag team championship match. Kane and The Big Show defend their belts against The Heartthrobs, Viscera and Val Venis, and Tyson Tomko and Snitsky in a Fatal Four Way. The match opens with a big brawl with everyone in the ring. Kane and Show dominate everyone. It ends quickly with a triple chokeslam performed on Tomko, Romeo, and Venis.
Scene shifts to the Trial of Bischoff. Vince calls the session to order. Chris Masters is the bailiff. Mick calls his first witness, Stephanie McMahon. She is asked about Bischoff's conduct, she states that she and Shane believe he should be removed. She then presents a video segment, Exhibit A. It goes back to a 2002 show where Eric, after removing a Vince mask, lands a big kiss on Stephanie.
They come back from commercial to hype their annual Tribute to the Troops. The WWE has been going to the Middle East each year to visit with and perform the troops. A very good thing, if you ask me.
The second match is a a woman's match pitting Mickie James, with Trish Stratus, against Victoria, with Torrie Wilson and Candace Michelle. Mickie gets the early lead, landing a big drop kick. Victoria gets the advantage, throwing Mickie to her wolves. Back into the ring, Victoria hits a nice slam, then lands punches to the head, followed by another body slam. She then stands on Mickie before hitting a standing moonsault. She goes for the first pin, 2 only. Mickie is just being dominated at this point in the match. Mickie breaks free and lands a few punches, but is quickly slowed by a big clothesline. In the corner, Victoria is the victim of a big head scissors, followed by a pair of clotheslines. Mickie pulls Torrie in and lands some stomps to the back. Candace serves as a distraction as Victoria rolls Mickie up for the pin. Mickie is in the ring looking at Trish in a very disappointed way.
