Taboo Tuesday

Tuesday, October 19, 2004 in Milwaukee, WI

(1) Intercontinental Championship

It’s all about the Benjamin.

After taking 37 percent of the vote, Shelton Benjamin certainly didn’t disappoint his fans, defeating seven-time

Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho at Taboo Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Benjamin dictated much of the action, connecting with a superplex from the top turnbuckle and hitting a flying clothesline on Jericho. He even escaped the Walls of Jericho during the match.

The lack of preparation time for Jericho may have cost him in the end as Benjamin converted his T-Bone Suplex to get the three-count and the championship.

It certainly didn’t take long for WWE fans to have an impact as a championship changed hands on the very first match of Taboo Tuesday.

Final voting results:
Benjamin 37.48%
Batista 20.11%
Coach 7.01%
Christian 6.69%
Rhyno 5.77%
Maven 4.23%
Regal 3.81%
Hurricane 3.77%
Tyson Tomko 2.49%
Tajiri 2.36%
Steven Richards 2.24%
Val Venis 1.69%
Rosey 1.10%
Chuck Palumbo 0.68%
Rodney Mack 0.58%

(2) Fulfill Your Fantasy Battle Royal

Molly Holly felt pretty good about knocking Stacy Kiebler out of the Diva Battle Royal at Taboo Tuesday.

The problem was Women’s Champion Trish Stratus was still in the ring. And Trish took advantage of Molly’s lapse in judgment and tossed her to the arena floor to retain her championship.

All seven Divas wore Schoolgirl Outfits as determined by the WWE fans’ voting.

Nidia, Jazz, Gail Kim and Victoria went out in that order before the final threesome were left in Milwaukee.

Final voting results:
Nurse Outfit 16.87%
French Maid 30.03%
School Girl 53.10%

(3) Kane vs. Snitsky

It appears Kane will have to wait to get his ultimate revenge on Gene Snitsky.

In a bloody and hard-fought Weapons of Choice Match, the uncaring newcomer used a chain and steel chair to leave Kane in a stretcher as Lita watched in horror.

WWE fans selected the chain as the weapon of choice, but Snitsky did most of his damage with the chair, securing it around Kane’s neck before jumping on it, crushing the throat of the Big Red Monster.

But Snitsky wasn’t done. As Kane was being escorted out, Snitsky kicked the stretcher, sending Kane face-first onto the metal ramp.

Final voting results:
Lead Pipe 29.24%
Steel Chair 29.93%
Chain 40.84%

(4) Eric Bischoff vs. Eugene

Eric Bischoff lost the match, nearly lost his job and then officially lost his hair.

It didn’t take long for Eugene to punish his uncle and RAW General Manager with a convincing win, capped by Hollywood Hogan-esque leg drop.

It was soon revealed that WWE fans decided the loser would have his head shaved by the winner. But with the prospects of Bischoff losing his beloved hair staring him in the face, Coach stepped in and decided the choice of the fans wouldn’t be honored.

That didn’t go over too well with Mr. McMahon, who came to the ring and demanded Bischoff take his haircut like a man. Moreover, Coach was ordered to wear a dress for his trouble as GM and assistant left Milwaukee a quite humiliated duo.

Final voting results:
Shave Bald 58.73%
Wear Dress 20.77%
Be Servant 20.50%

(5) World Tag Team Championship

The reign is over.

Nearly five months after capturing the World Tag Team Championship, La Resistance lost to the very team they beat for the championship back on May 31.

Since Shawn Michaels was selected by the fans to take on Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship, Edge and Chris Benoit had to settle for facing La Resistance.

But the consolation prize didn’t go over too well with Edge, who brooded over the fans? choice all night and ultimately walked out on the match and actually jumped in his car outside the arena, leaving Benoit to fend for himself.

But the Rabid Wolverine mounted a fierce comeback, eventually applying the Crippler Crossface on Rob Conway, who tapped out after he couldn’t get to the ropes.

Carmella is still second fiddle to Christy.

After losing the $250,000 RAW Diva Search, Carmella also lost her first WWE match in a Lingerie Pillow Fight to Christy.

WWE fans selected the Pillow fight over an Aerobics Challenge and Evening Gown Match at Taboo Tuesday.

Final voting results:
Lingerie Pillow Fight 56.48%
Evening Gown Match 33.22%
Aerobics Challenge 10.30%

(6) Christy vs. Carmella

Lingerie Pillow Fight 56.48%
Evening Gown Match 33.22%
Aerobics Challenge 10.30%

(7) World Heavyweight Championship

It would have been one of the most remarkable victories in Shawn Michaels’ career.

Battling a serious knee injury, the fans’ choice to face Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship never succumbed to the pain, battling The Game with one good leg and a giant heart.

But before HBK could put Triple H away with Sweet Chin Music, Edge, who had previously walked out on his tag team match with Chris Benoit and seemingly left the arena, suddenly reappeared and speared the Showstopper, helping Triple H retain his championship.

Edge, still furious after losing his shot at glory, muttered over and over “It should have been me,” as he left the ring.

Final voting results:
HBK 38.72%
Benoit 27.86%
Edge 33.42%

(8) Randy Orton vs. Ric Flair

There’s no argument now, Randy Orton is indeed a Legend Killer.

In a Steel Cage of all places, Orton avoided a chair shot and then connected with the RKO to pin Flair at Taboo Tuesday.

Both Superstars were covered in blood by the time the historic match ended. WWE fans decided the match would take place in a Steel Cage instead of a Submission or Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Orton showed Flair the ultimate respect after the match, shaking Flair’s hand and hugging the 16-time former World Champion.

Final voting results:
Steel Cage 68%
Falls Count Anywhere 20%
Submission Match 12%
