World Heavyweight Championship
Chairs Match
Undertaker (c) vs. Batista

There are chairs set up all around ringside (although it looks pretty pathetic in comparison to the ladders earlier), as Tony Chimel explains the rules, apparently only chairs will be legal as far as foreign weapons go. Batista is out first to a bit of a mixed reaction from the crowd (it seems like the crowd is still a bit shocked about the previous title change).

The Undertaker's gong hits and the crowd goes nuts, as expected. Taker makes his way to the ring, amidst very loud cheers from the crowd.

Batista bails to the floor at the sound of the bell and goes right for a chair, but Undertaker doesn't allow him to use it. Back in the ring Undertaker hits a quick clothesline before pounding on Batista in the corner. Taker stomps away at Batista for a bit before sending him head first into the turnbuckle. Batista is able to fight back with a clothesline of his own, but when he goes for the pin, Taker kicks out at one. Taker sends Batista to the outside.

Taker sends Batista head first into the steel steps, but when Taker goes for a chair shot, Batista buries his foot in Taker's midsection and sends him head first into the stairs. Batista tries to send Taker into the barricade, but Taker reverses it and Batista ends up flipping over into the timekeeper's area. Taker tosses a couple of chairs in the ring, but when he goes for a big kick on Batista, Batista ducks and Taker ends up being hung up on the barricade. Batista hits Taker with a big chair shot and uses the chair to choke the Undertaker.

Batista sends Taker into the ring post and he tries to hit him with a chair, but Taker ducks and the momentum shifts. Taker sets Batista up for his big apron leg drop and he hits it. Back in the ring, Taker goes for the cover but Batista kicks out at two. Taker tries for Old School, but Batista counters and Taker ends up sitting on the top turnbuckle. Batista tries for a superplex, and after a little bit of fighting, he's able to connect, but again it's only good enough for a two count.

Batista sets a chair down in the middle of the ring and he tries for the Batista bomb, but Taker counters with a back body drop sending Batista down on top of the chair. Taker and Batista trade blows in the middle of the ring with Taker getting the advantage, but it doesn't last long as Batista fights back with a big spinebuster that's good for a near fall.

Batista wedges a chair in between the top and middle turnbuckle before going back to pounding on Taker. Batista tries for a clothesline, but Taker ducks and comes back with a leaping clothesline of his own. Taker hits a nasty shoulderblock and goes for Old School again, connecting this time.

Taker hits snake eyes in the corner on Batista, but Batista comes right back with a spear. Batista tries for a cover, but he can't hold Taker down for the three count. Batista picks up Taker and drives him down on a chair with a big spine buster. Batista teases the Batista bomb, but he finds himself caught in the Hell's gate out of nowhere. Batista is able to fall over into the ropes and force a break of the submission.

Batista bails to the floor to recover and when Taker tries to follow out after him, Batista hits Taker with a chair shot to the throat. Back in the ring, Batista tries for a spear, but Taker moves and Batista connects with the chair he set up in the corner earlier. Taker tries for a pin but Batista kicks out at two. Taker signals for the chokeslam, and he connects, but again Batista kicks out at two.

Batista tries for the tombstone, but Batista counters out and pushes Taker toward the ref. The ref turns his back and Batista uses the opportunity to hit a low blow. Batista hits a huge chair shot straight to Taker's head. He pins Taker and gets a three count.

Winner and NEW World Heavyweight Champion: Batista

After the match, Teddy Long is out and he says that even though the usage of chairs is legal, a blatant foul is not. Long says he won't allow the World Heavyweight Championship to change hands on such a cheap act, so this match will be restarted.

Batista tries to get a quick chair shot, but Taker gets his foot up. Taker hits a chair shot of his own and follows up with a tombstone. Taker pins Batista and this one is over... again.

Winner and STILL World Heavyweight Champion: The Undertaker
