No Way Out 2003
This was a very good PPV indeed. The return of 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin was arguably the greatest thing that happened on this event.
The first match sees Chris Jericho taking on Jeff Hardy in a fine match, although Jeff looked awful. This was meant to be Chris Jericho vs Test, but in real life Test and Stacy Keibler ignored warnings of severe weather in Baltimore and they were late for the previous Raw, so WWE management punished them in this way.
Next up Matt Hardy V1 challenges Billy Kidman for the worthless Cruiserweight Championship in a very good match. Then The Undertaker battled The Big Show in a boring match. Taker won by a Dragon sleeper.
Next up Team Angle and Kurt Angle battled Chris Benoit and Brock Lesnar in a fantastic 3 on 2 handicap match! Edge was supposed to be in Lesnar and Benoit's corner, but had to drop out because of a severe neck injury. Benoit and Lesnar won. Next up WWE demonstrates it doesn't give a monkeys about the WWE Tag straps as Kane and RVD take on William Regal and Lance Storm in a boring contest. One interesting note is that Kane body slammed Regal and this knocked him out for 30 seconds. William and Storm won.
Next up Scott Steiner takes on Triple H for the Heavyweight gold. This was only a slight improvement on the pairs crap match at Royal Rumble 2003, but the running in of Ric Flair, Batista and Randy Orton spoiled things. Obviously HHH won.
Next up Eric Bischoff gets his ass whipped by the returning 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin in an hilarious contest. Jim Ross, Jerry Lawler and The Coach were enjoying themselves when this happened, as were about half the roster, which included Test, Al Snow, Rey Mysterio and The Hurricane! Next up The Rock defeated Hulk Hogan in a p*ss poor match. I mean it was bad. Their Wrestlemania 18 confrontation was way better than this. The only enjoyable thing about this match, was when referee Sylvain Grenier pretended to be knocked out, and he gave the chair to Rock to use on Hogan. Other than that the action was boring! Overall not bad! I give this PPV a 8/10
