    Wow! What a match! RVD is the new IC champ, but look what a show these 2 guys put on!
    Both RVD and Guerrero almost breaking their necks several times, falling on ladders chest first, a fan running in knocking the ladder over!! Wow. Why did I not have my VCR running?
    RAW has be AWFUL the past few weeks and ratings have dropped. This was obviously an attempt to spark more interest, and man, did it work.

    At first I thought the fan run in was some old ECW guy but when I saw RVD go from being knocked out to looking in shock I was freaked! That was hilarious!!

    Best match on TV in a long time. I'm glad to see Eddie getting some spotlight because he is one of my favorite wrestlers.

    It's been a long time since I've seen a match like that
    on RAW or Smackdown.
    What a match!!!
    It's unbelieveable what these athletes put themselves through.

    Was the fan running in staged? Can someone who was there live tell us?
    Either way it was a good show[​IMG] [​IMG]

    As awesome as this match was , i still think it was nowhere near the quality of any of RVD's ECW matches. This was the first match in MONTHS that RVD wasnt going in slow motion. If you want to check out a great 30 minute RVD match , check out RVD Vs Jerry Lynn 2 on the Extreme Evolution DVD.
    Plus , Benoit was so over at the end , why do the turn??.

    I don't think the fan was staged. What would be the point? WCW had many fans jump over the guard rail. I remember one of their referees put a hold on a fan until security took over.

    I didn't notice any improvements in RVD. He worked at the same pace and performed the same moves with the exception of the ladder frog splash which he missed. Eddie, however, was awesome. That may have been the best match he's had since the one at Halloween Havoc with Rey Mysterio Jr.

    The fan running in was NOT staged.
    Earl Hebner grabbed the "uninvited guest" right away and held him until security could snatch the dumb a$$ up.
    He'll be spending a few hours in jail and getting a hefty couple thousand dollar fine I'm sure.
    Eddie did a great job playing it off though...
    When Earl had the idiot in the corner, Eddie started "kicking" the guy so it almost looked like it was staged for a second there.
    The problem is, the guy didn't even realize he could have seriously injured Eddie, RVD, Earl or himself.
    What a piece of work that jerk is. [​IMG]
    I'd tell Vince to throw the book at em!
