KANE (w/Lita) Defeated Viscera (w/Trish) at BackLashTwo of RAW’s most powerful Superstars matched brut force in Manchester, N.H. on Sunday Night - and it was KANE that proved to be more forcefully brutal as he chokeslammed Big Vis for the win.
Backstage: Lita was shown backstage watching the TV monitor with a smile and then Kane showed up. Lita asked if he was ready, and he said he was. She said she was ready to see him take out both Viscera and Trish. Lita started going on about Viscera and Trish in bed together, and Kane said that was disturbing. Lita said she likes what Kane has in mind much better. They then started to kiss. I smell a Lita heel turn soon.
Kane vs. Viscera
Referee: Chad Patton
The music of Kane hit in the arena as he made his way to the ring with Lita, and he is set for action against Viscera who was accompanied by the Women’s Champion, Trish Stratus.
The start: Kane and Viscera locked up and Viscera challenged him to try and knock him down but he didn’t budge. Viscera knocked Kane down with a clothesline but then missed a splash in the corner. Kane knocked Viscera to the outside and then went up top and jumped off with a double axe handle onto Viscera to knock him down. The “We Want Matt” chants started up again as Kane hit a series of elbow drops on Viscera, and then a big leg drop for two.
Mid-match notes: Kane hammered on Viscera but then walked into a spinning heel kick from Viscera. Viscera chopped the chest of Kane and then gave him a huge body slam. Viscera missed an elbow and then Kane grabbed Trish by the hair on the outside but Viscera squashed him in the corner and then hit the Embalmer on Kane and made the cover but Kane kicked out! Kane fought back with some uppercuts but then Viscera hit a big side walk slam for two.
Viscera gave Kane a head butt and then Kane came back with DDT. Kane went up top and came off with a clothesline to knock Viscera down. Kane signalled for the Chokeslam and went for it, but Viscera elbowed out and then clotheslined Kane to the outside. Viscera followed him out and sent him headfirst into the apron. Lita came over to stop Viscera but he shoved her out of the way. Kane then sent Viscera into the ring post and Trish went to hit Kane with a chair, but Lita whacked the chair into the face of Trish with her crutch!
The Finish: Back inside, and Kane went for another clothesline from the top, but Viscera caught him and hit a sit out powerbomb but Kane got his shoulder up. Viscera grabbed Lita and brought her into the ring and went to kiss her in the corner but Kane knocked him down with a big boot and then hit the chokeslam and made the cover for the win!
Winner - Kane
The Aftermath: Trish got on the mic after the match and called Viscera pathetic. Viscera grabbed her and shook her around in a bear hug and dumped her on the mat. Viscera went to get out of the ring but stopped and then smiled, and got back inside and squashed Trish with a Big Splash! The EMT’s then came down and put a neck brace on Trish and got her onto a stretcher.

KANE Advances with Lita at His Side
RAW GM, Eric Bischoff, announced tonight would host the first round of an eight man “Gold Rush Tournament” for a chance at being the No. 1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Captain Charisma seemed especially confident of his chances … until he learned his first-round opponent was Kane. Christian tried to avoid Kane’s power assault and stay on offense, but with the lovely Lita cheering him on at ringside, the Big Red Monster eventually caught him. What followed was a chokeslam and three-count, which even “Problem Solver” Tyson Tomko was powerless to prevent, or escape himself.
The semifinal brackets will feature Edge vs. Michaels in the renewal of a bitter rivalry and Chris Benoit vs. Kane as brute force matches up with technical ring prowess. (from WWE.com)

Viscera vs. Kane, Masters vs. Richards, Edge vs. Benoit
(6) Kane beat Viscera. Pre-match interview for Big Vis saw the line of the night when he said to Kane, "Maybe after I squish your guts I can squish Lita's guts if you know what I mean." Kane got a nice pop during his entrance and post match. Match was short and sweet, with Kane finishing Viscera with a chokeslam.
