- We get a video package of the events between Kevin Nash, from his return, to his attack on Triple H a couple of months ago, that have led up to this match between the two men tonight.
Sledgehammer Ladder Match
Kevin Nash vs. Triple H
The sledge hammer is shown hanging over the ring, although it doesn't look to be hung nearly as high as these things normally are. Nash's music hits, and Big Daddy Cool makes his way out to the ring to a bit of a reaction from the crowd. I don't know what it is but they seem to be sitting on their hands during all of the heel intros, and even some of the face intros.
After a bit of a pause after Nash's music dies, Triple H makes his way out to the ring to the biggest pop of the night so far. Hunter makes his way down to the ring, and again, just like during the tables match, the entrance way is lined with ladders on both sides the whole way down. Something tells me they won't need nearly that many ladders for this match.
Nash goes to attack Hunter right off the bat at the bell, but Hunter turns it around, peppering Nash with rights in the corner. Nash responds by hitting Hunter with a couple of big elbows to the side of the head, so Hunter comes right back with huge rights to the side of Nash's face. Nash turns Hunter around and buries his knee in Hunter's gut repeatedly before hitting him with a couple of clubbing blows to the back. Hunter comes back, ramming his shoulder into Nash's stomach before building up steam and hitting Nash hard, sending him crashing to the outside. Hunter follows and slams Nash into the announce table, but when he turns his attention to one of the ladders, he's caught by surprise by Nash with a big boot to the side of the face. Nash picks up the ladder and uses it to charge into Triple H, sending him crashing into the time keeper's area.
Nash slides a ladder into the ring, and when he turns around, Triple H comes at him, leaping off the announce table with a flying forearm and slamming his forearm into Nash's face. Hunter goes over and knocks down one of the ringside ladders before clotheslining Nash over the barricade into the crowd.
Hunter charges Nash, but Nash is able to get his elbow up and Hunter runs right into it. Nash crosses back over into the ringside area, shoulders Triple H, and sends him crashing face first into the barricade before bringing him back and slamming him into the ring steps. Nash tries to whip Hunter into the ring post, but Triple H is able to turn things around and Nash crashes face first into the ring post. Hunter turns to Nash's knee, kicking him hard before sending him back into the ring, grabbing another ladder and bringing it in with him.
Hunter takes the ladder and uses it to slam Nash's knee repeatedly. Nash falls to the mat clutching his knee, and Hunter holds on to the ladder, taking it over and driving it into Nash's knee hard twice. Hunter tosses the ladder to the mat and grabs Nash's leg, sandwiching it in the ladder and stomping away hard at the knee.
Hunter wraps the ladder around Nash's leg and drapes it over his body, locking in a figure four with Nash's legs caught up in the ladder. Hunter holds on to it for a while, but eventually breaks it on his own. He sets up one ladder in the corner, and uses the other ladder to just slam down onto Nash's chest.
Hunter picks Nash up to his feet and Nash fights back, whipping Hunter into the ladder hard enough to send him sailing into the ladder and over the top rope, crashing down onto the floor.
