Backstage Interview with Vampiro:
Vampiro said that it really didn't matter who came out on top during the hardcore royale. No one was going to be good enough to take down the only hardcore man in the ICW.

Backstage In NEO's Locker Room:
Edge stared down at Chris Kanyon, Victoria, Chris Candido, Tammy, and the Big Bombs, Mike Awesome and Vader.
Edge: NEO has always been about being elite, about being above the cuff, above the bar. Tonight, I'm making a decision for NEO's future. Chris Candido, you are first. You have DONE absolutely nothing to help my cause as Universal Champion. Your live-in wife and fiancee is just in the way, and sorry to say, you're DONE! Get out of my locker room you waste! Get out now!!!!!
Candido and Tammy leave out the door way very quietly.
Edge: Now, onto other matters, Vader and Mike Awesome. You guys are big, and you are the masters of the power bomb as far as I'm concerned, however, where are you tag team titles? None? Have you even bothered to win? Have you really even tried? No! Kanyon and I have decided that we will no longer be needing your services for NEO.
Awesome: Not that you can fit anyone past your big ego Edge. Take the BJ Queen and go be a leader, you're not worth following!
Mike Awesome leaves out the door. Vader stares at Kanyon and then leaves behind Awesome.
Edge: Good, now that it down to the two truly elite members of NEO, things will take shape. Kanyon and Victoria get ready for your match with HHH inside the cage. Chastity and I will assure I walk out of tonight as the Universal champion!
Chris Kanyon and Victoria make their way out the door as Edge shoots a smile at Chastity.
Chastity: All starting to take shape isn't it?

Crowbar: Look I appericiate you guys trying to look out for me, I can handle it myself though. I'll see you all later, Ash take care.
Crowbar leaves as Amy stares at the cut on Ash's forehead.
Amy: You don't look good.
Ash: Don't worry about it, besides you've got Chuck Palumbo and the American title match to worry about. Get going and get ready.

Daffney walked over to Lita and the two exchanged a deep and passionate kiss!!!! The fans were stunned.
Daffney: That's right, we play both sides as we feel like and only those worthy enough get to be with us. None of you fans are worthy enough.

HBK hit the mat and laid down 1...... 2..... and thre NO!!!!! DDP KICKED OUT!!!! Edge was pissed. Edge sent DDP off the ropes and DDP fought back with a spin around DDT! Chastity again jumped on the apron and clawed at DDP. HBK jumped over the ropes and ripped her down from the ring. With HBK distracted HHH clocked DDP in the head with the sledgehammer and then once in the side as well. Edge got up and hit DDP with a huge spear sending DDP's head crashing to the canvas. HBK slide back in as Edge hooked the leg and got the 1.... 2...... 3!!! Edge had retained the title!

Match with Special Referee Shawn Michaels:

(Edge retained the ICW Universal Title.)
Edge celebrated with Chastity and HHH as he entered the ring. Test came down to the ring with Stacey Keibler and they all embraced.
"Perfect- ICW Remix"- ICW Commissioner Curt Hennig made his way down to the ring. Hennig looked pissed.
Hennig: I think I've figured it out. Test and HHH and Edge all together, what could be better then that right? Well, Edge since both of your title defenses tonight were given to you by outside interference, let me be the first to congratulate you on retaining your title.
Edge: Not that should surprise anyone.
Hennig: Also let congratulate you on defending your title for a THIRD time tonight!!!
A referee appeared from the back and headed to the ring.
Edge: No way, not going to happen.
Hennig: Oh it will, in the ring, WITH SHAWN MICHAELS!!! RING THE BELL AND GET THE MATCH STARTED!!!!
The bell rang and Edge tossed the title to the outside of the ring.
ICW Universal Title Match:
Shawn Michaels vs Edge (c) w/Chastity
Michaels and Edge tried locking up several times but it appeared that neither was ready to get the other one into the match. Edge was distracted by Chastity screaming and HBK took advantage hitting Edge square on the jaw with a punch. Edge hit the mat and HBK dove to the mat to make the cover. The referee laid down the count 1...... 2.... and 3!?!!!
Shawn Michaels pinned Edge w/Chastity after a punch in 0:00:39.
(Shawn Michaels won the ICW Universal Title.)
HBK helped Edge up from the mat and gave him a hug!!! WHAT THE HELL!!! Chastity came in and HBK hugged her as well. HHH, Test and Stacey all joined together in a group hug that was disgusting as the fans weren't sure what was going on.
Hennig: Wait, wait! What could be better then HHH, Edge and Test together? I know! HHH, Edge, Test, Stacey, Chastity, your ICW Commissioner and HBK together!!!!
Hennig jumped into the ring and shook HBK's hand.
Edge: You see you fans are idiots. You never saw it coming! The ICW never saw it coming as HHH likes to say. I used NEO to get myself the title so the true showstopper HBK could reign supreme like only he can in the ICW! NEO was a joke, Kanyon was used. Candido was trash, Tammy was a crack whore. And Vader and Awesome were merely pawns to get me my title! The title that now is around the proper owner's waist.
HHH: That is right and it doesn't stop there, because that's right, the Game helped eliminate Kanyon and made sure that Edge took out DDP!
Test: And I made sure that Edge took care of Booker T as well. It was easy as 1... 2... and 3!
Edge: But it doesn't stop there, Commissioner Hennig knew all about, plotted and with his power made sure it all went down.
Hennig: Always glad to help out my boys!
HBK: You see, the ICW is the future of wrestling and that future belongs to me! That future one day belong to Edge, HHH and Test as well, but as for right now, I am your Universal Champion whether you like it or you don't like it and there isn't anyone that can do anything about it. You see, like HHH says, you idiot fans and idiot ICW wrestlers didn't see it coming. Well I take that back, Ash Eversoll saw it coming. It only cost him what, his friends, his wife. That's right Ash, I did intentionally superkick Amy when she wrestled Edge for the title because that title belonged to me! I am the champion of champions! I am the ICON! I am the showstopper! And I am the main eventer! Something you will never, ever been in the ICW again. And as long as we rule the ICW, and trust me, we rule it all ready, you will never see the inside of this ring again. And the fans of the ICW can weep and cry and complain all they want but the fact of the matter is this, NEO DX IS HERE AND WE'RE HERE TO STAY!!!
"OHHHH OHHHH SHAWN!" plays over the speakers and HBK poses with the Universal title as Edge, Chastity, HHH, Hennig, Test and Stacey all show off as well. The fans are erupting in boos and garbage is being tossed at the ring like never before.
