Match Observations:

Severn beat Jarrett. Close match. VERY close match. It could conceivably gone
either way, and Severn and Jarrett know it very well. Therefore, Jarrett will
get a third chance, at King of the Ring.

Big Daddy Cool is back and better than ever - for lack of a better term. His
victory over Stan Hansen got him a title shot at Yokozuna to be held at the King
of the Ring 2002.

Speaking of Yokozuna, wasn't his victory over Japanese legend Riki Chosyu
atrocious ? Someday he'll have to pay...

Surprise, surprise. Who would have thought the 1-2-3 Kid would recruit none
other the the Great Sasuke. You don't know who Great Sasuke is ? For one, he is
one of the greatest high-flyers ever. Then he hates Hakushi. The only unknown
in this equation is Sasaki San. Who is he ?
