attack Trish. As T&A came to help their manager, the Hardy Boyz came to
ringside to take T&A out of the match. That left Val easy prey for a sit-down splash
and a pinfall at the hands (and butt) of Rikishi. The Hardys soon chased off T&A,
and Too Cool, the Hardys, Rikishi and Lita all danced in celebration!

allowing Road Dogg to push Jeff Hardy off the top rope into an X-Factor! DX then
picked up the 1-2-3.
Dean Malenko was accompanied to the ring by two lovely ladies. His opponent,
Al Snow, poked fun at the Light Heavyweight Champion by bringing two blow-up
dolls to ringside! During the match, Steven Richards came to ringside and brought
both blow-up dolls and both ladies back to the locker room. After Malenko won the

champions attacked Faarooq with the ring bell.
