Denver, Col. at Pepsi Center
We will update the Vengeance PPV on this free-for-all version of PWTorch.com with the basic results as they happen thoughout the night.
My detailed coverage of this event with full match details and star ratings is being posted in "virtual time" at the VIP website (PWTorch.com/members). The Torch staff PPV Roundtable will also be posted at the member's site later tonight, also. Both the PPV Report and Roundtable will also be e-mailed to VIP Email Express members shortly after the PPV concludes tonight.

(1) Eddie Guerrero pinned Chris Benoit at 21:54 to capture the U.S. Title ending when Rhyno gave Benoit a Gore on purpose to cost him the match.
(2) Jamie Noble pinned Billy Gunn at 4:59 to earn a night in bed with Torrie.
(3) Bradshaw won the APA Invitational Barroom Brawl. A bar set was constructed near the stage and over a dozen wrestlers, Brother Love, and the Easter Bunny drank and hit each other with bar stools and other stuff for nearly five minutes.
(4) Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin beat Rey Mysterio & Kidman at 15:01 to retain the WWE Tag Team Titles. Match of the night so far. Outstanding tag match.
(5) Sable pinned Stephanie McMahon at 6:32 after A-Train gave Steph a big boot while the ref was distracted. No nudity, although Steph did rip off Sable's top, but the ref supplied his shirt to cover her.
(6) Undertaker pinned John Cena at 16:06 after a Last Ride. Good match. Taker had Cena pinned early, but lifted his shoulder. That seemed to indicate Taker would be losing later. Then, late in the match Taker kicked out of Cena's finisher after Cena hit him with a chain. That seemed to assure that Cena would eventually win since Taker had two "save face" spots built in to soften any blow from a loss. Yet Taker still won clean with a Last Ride out of nowhere. Taker bled from the mouth, which was part of the storyline of the match with the announcers talking about him having suffered internal injuries during the match.
(7) Vince McMahon pinned Zach Gowen at 14:22. Good match. Zach hit all the spots he showed off in his TNA matches, including springboard flips to the floor and moonsaults in the ring. In the end, Vince looked to get cut hardway after Zach kicked a chair into his face (or else Vince gigged an artery). In any case, Vince had a fawcet flow of blood coming out of his head at the end. Zach missed a moonsault at the end and Vince draped his arm over him for the win.
(8) Kurt Angle pinned Brock Lesnarr in a three-way match with Big Show at 17:38. Very good match. Clean win.
