WWF RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Freeman Coliseum, San Antonio, TX.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Jack Doan, Teddy Long & Jim Korderas

Are you ready ? Break it down ! D-Generation X's theme music brought the fans to their feet and San Antonio's own Shawn Michaels down to the ring along with Triple H and Chyna. After some pyrotechnics, crotch chops and a few lewd jokes thrown in for good measure, HBK "reminded" Vince McMahon that "DX runs this show" and that it would therefore be in the company's best interest for he, Shawn Michaels, to be the WWF Champion instead of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Michaels made reference to the finals of the Championship Tournament in which he was pinned by Austin for the title after interference from Mankind. HBK was "tuning up the band" by stomping his foot in preparation for the Sweet Chin Music when Mankind snuck into the ring and flattened him with a Double Arm DDT leading to the pinfall. Michaels neglected to mention, however, that he had eliminated Mankind earlier in the tournament following a 2x4 shot to the noggin which may have precipitated the interference in the final round. HBK then fired up the crowd by suggesting a title match on RAW next week and told McMahon to make it happen !

1. The Brood (Gangrel & Edge w/ Christian) defeated Jim Cornette's New Midnight Express ("Bombastic" Bob Holly & "Bodacious' Bart Gunn) at 6:18. The Brood followed up a ghoulish backstage promo by emerging from a ring of fire during their entrance to add 75 points to their total. On the flip side, Cornette also earned 75 points for his team by being soundly boo'd for snatching the mic away from Howard Finkel and personally introducing this latest version of the Midnight Express. The match itself was a fairly even tag contest that took a drastic turn in the Brood's favor when Edge and Gangrel combined for a dirty double team maneuver on Bodacious Bart while Christian distracted Referee Jack Doan. Gangrel finished off Gunn moments later with his Impaler DDT.

2. Cactus Jack pinned Chainsaw Charlie (aka Terry Funk) in a Falls Count Anywhere Match at 14:16. Apparently Jerry Lawler is not a fan of either competitor. The King quipped to Jim Ross that he hoped that "these two idiots would injure each other so severely in this match that they would put one another out of wrestling for good !" Lawler did not get his wish, though. Far be it ! In fact, both men seemed to relish in the punishment that they were both receiving and dishing out. The path of destruction weaved its way around and around backstage in the Freeman Coliseum and culminated with Cactus shattering a fluorescent light bulb tube over Charlie's head to gain the three count.

Michael Cole conducted a backstage interview with the Jackyl (aka Don Callis) and his Truth Commission stable of Recon, Sniper & Kurrgan the Interrogator. Actually, Cole held a microphone and the Jackyl did ALL of the talking. (Jim Ross doesn't refer to him as "the David Koresh of the WWF" for nothing.) The Jackyl laid out his demented intentions of world domination and served notice to Vince McMahon that his takeover would officially begin here by dethroning McMahon as the head of the World Wrestling Federation. McMahon was then shown watching the promo from a monitor in his office along with his associates Pat Patterson, Gerald Brisco and Head of Security the Big Bossman. McMahon muttered "I've got a message for you, Mr. Jackyl" and whispered something into the Bossman's ear.

3. Kurrgan the Interrogator (w/ Recon, Sniper & the Jackyl) over Test at 4:42. Test was clearly preoccupied by the presence of the Truth Commission in Kurrgan's corner and lost 100 points as a result of the distraction. To make matters worse, the Big Bossman came down to ringside and accidentally laid out Test with a running clothesline during a melee OOR when his intended target, the Jackyl, ducked at the last possible instant. Kurrgan finished off his dazed opponent with the Paralyzer Claw Hold soon after. He refused to release the hold after the bell rang and dragged Test backstage with the Paralyzer still firmly applied.

"Marvelous" Marc Mero did his best Muhammad Ali impersonation during a backstage interview with Michael Cole regarding his upcoming bout with Al Snow. Mero claimed to "float like a butterfly and sting like a bee" as he shadow boxed around the hapless Cole. The promo was then interrupted by Snow, who, after conferring with "Head" (the lady mannequin head that he carries around with him), insisted that Mero had it backwards. "He may float like a bee, Michael Cole, but make no mistake about it - Marc Mero stings like a butterfly!" Marvelous Marc was incensed by the snub and stormed off. He would have been even more irate had he realized that Snow's interruption cost him 50 points.

4. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqueline) beat Al Snow (w/ "Head") at 6:42. "What does everybody want ??" brought Snow out much to the fans' delight. He was immediately pushed off the ramp from behind by Mero during his ring entrance which sent him crashing hard to the floor below. Snow lost 200 points for the bad fall. Once the match got under way, Al caught a break when Jacqueline errantly bashed Mero in the head with one of her high heel shoes. The valet redeemed herself later in the match, however, by slipping Marvelous Marc some brass knucks after Referee Jack Doan had been toppled to the canvas. Mero KO'd Al with a loaded punch to put him down for the three count.

Mr. McMahon ambled down to the ring to his "No Chance !" theme music with Pat Patterson & Gerald Brisco in tow. Patterson and Brisco held the ropes open as the kingpin of the WWF stepped into the ring with a mic. "First of all, San Antonio, thank you for giving us Shawn Michaels - the most pompous, spoiled brat that this company has ever known." (Loud Boos!). "Secondly, your merry little band of degenerates may 'run the show', Shawn, but remember who signs your paycheck the next time you call me out." (More boos!" " And last but not least, Mr. Michaels said earlier this evening that you people want to see a WWF Championship next week on RAW ?" (Loud cheers!). Mr. McMahon seemed genuinely surprised. "Well then, I guess it's true. And we all know that Shawn Michaels always gets whatever Shawn Michaels wants, right ?" (More cheers). "Alright then, there will be a title match on RAW next week..." (More cheers) "except......... Austin will not defend the championship against Shawn Michaels, San Antonio, no .... Austin will face the winner of the next match pitting Jeff Jarrett against Val Venis." Mr. McMahon then left the ring to "No Chance" with Pat Patterson, Gerald Brisco and a smug smile on his face.

5. Val Venis (w/ a towel wrapped around his waist and Ken Shamrock's sister Ryan Shamrock wrapped around his arm) defeated Jeff Jarrett (w/ Tennessee Lee (aka Robert Fuller) at 4:03. Val had the women in attendance swooning when he greeted them with his lecherous "Hello, Ladies" drawl, but the former adult film actor soon found himself in a heap of trouble after Tennessee Lee reached into the ring and tripped him. Jarrett held the advantage until Lee tried to interfere once more. Tennessee may have gone to the well once too often when he tried to trip up Val again but ended up sending Jarrett to the mat instead. Venis quickly followed with The Money Shot (Diving Splash) to win both the match and the title shot against Austin next week.

6. D-Generation X's New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg Jesse James & "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn w/ Chyna) beat the Nation of Domination (Faarooq & Kama Mustafa) in tag team action at 7:32. Road Dogg was barely into his "Oh, you didn't know ??" entrance bellow when the Outlaws were jumped from behind by Nation of Domination members D'Lo Brown and Mark Henry. Gunn and Road Dogg lost 200 points from the attack, but battled back and persevered in the end. Road Dogg scored the pinfall on Mustafa after a Spiked Piledriver with Billy Gunn behind Referee Jim Korderas' back during a distraction by Chyna.

7. "The Big Red Machine" Kane (w/ Paul Bearer) over "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock in the Main Event at 13:00. Kane's points total was bolstered by a great backstage promo from Paul Bearer as well as a roll on his Cheating Modifier, but things looked grim when he became entrapped in Shamrock's trademark Ankle Lock submission hold. The Big Red Machine seemed on the verge of tapping out when Val Venis and Ryan Shamrock suddenly appeared smooching on the Titantron screen as they celebrated Val's victory over Jeff Jarrett. Known for his fierce temper, Ken released the hold and went off on a fit of rage over seeing his sister in the arms of the former porn star. Shamrock's tantrum abruptly ended when Kane grabbed him by the throat and planted into the mat with a thunderous Chokeslam for the three count.

WWF Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Battelle Hall, Columbus, OH.

Commentators: Frank Coutinho & Al Snow w/ "Head"
Ring Announcer: "Columbus Clipper" Frankie Williams
Referees: Mike Sparks, Earl Hebner & Chad Patton

The show opened with Dude Love cutting a goofy promo and delivering some tie dye T-Shirts to Frank and Al at the announcers' table. The Dude even brought an extra one for "Head". We see a close up of "Head" with "Help Me" written backwards on "her" forehead. We also see that Al had put his announcer's headset on "Head". Dude then called a couple of ladies out of the crowd and gave them tie dye T-Shirts as well. He called them his "Dudettes". The gals dance with the Dude to some funky 70's music.

1. The Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff Hardy w/ Michael Hayes) fought Kaientai (Dick Togo & Men's Teioh w/ Yamaguchi-San) to a Double Count Out at 6:05. This high-flying aerial extravaganza ended up on the floor after Yamaguchi-San tried to throw ceremonial salt into Jeff Hardy's eyes. Michael Hayes immediately chased Kaientai's diminutive but fleet-footed manager to the back with Togo and Teioh leaving the ring in hot pursuit to come to his defense. The Hardyz quickly followed. A free-for-all ensued in the aisle with Referee Mike Sparks counting both teams out.

2. Scorpio (aka Flash Funk) pinned Savio Vega of Los Boricuas (w/ Miguel Perez Jr.) at 4:07. This was a case of good intentions gone awry. Miguel Perez climbed up onto the apron to interfere, but Vega was sent crashing into him courtesy of a Scorpio Flying Drop Kick. With both members of Los Boricuas down and out, Scorpio scaled the top rope and delivered a Moonsault onto the dazed Savio for the pinfall.

Droz (aka former Denver Broncos' defensive lineman Darren Drozdov) cut an outstanding promo with Frank Coutinho backstage and announced that he had his eyes firmly set upon winning the European Championship from The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust. Droz said that he hoped a victory over Steven Regal this evening would earn him a title match.

3. "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal (w/ Flannel Shirt & Hard Hat) pinned Droz at 3:49. Regal held up the match to show footage of a lumberjack cutting down a tree in the forest with an axe. Although the lumberjack sported a long red beard and was rather rotund, Regal (in a particularly snobby British accent) insisted the woodsman in the video was him. As it turned out, Regal had as much trouble with his wrestling as he did in trying to convince everyone that he was a "Real Man's Man". Droz appeared to have the match won with a small package, but Referee Chad Patton had taken a bad bump to the canvas and was unable to make the three count. The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust snuck into the ring and reversed the cradle while Patton was trying to shake out the cobwebs. The official finally recovered to find Regal on top and counted the 1-2-3.

4. The New Blackjacks (Blackjack Bradshaw & Blackjack Windham) defeated Southern Justice (Mark Canterbury & Dennis Knight (aka hog farmers Henry & Phineas Godwinn) w/ Tennessee Lee) at 9:05. Commentator Frank Coutinho accurately described this tag contest as a "knock-down, drag 'em-out slobberknocker". Scientific holds were indeed hard to come by in this slugfest. Bradshaw pinned Dennis Knight with a Neckbreaker after Knight had telegraphed a Back Body Drop attempt.

5. The Nation of Domination's D'Lo Brown (w/ Mark Henry) pinned WWF European Champion The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust (w/ Luna Vachon) in a non-title match at 4:56. The champion earned 100 points for his flamboyant "Shattered Dreams" Hollywood production entrance and was in command of the action until Droz returned to ringside. Goldust's attention was immediately drawn to a confrontation between Luna and Droz OOR. Brown capitalized on the distraction by sneaking up from behind and planting the champion with a Bridging German Suplex for the victory.

6. D-Generation X's Hunter Hearst Helmsley (w/ Chyna) defeated Dude Love at 12:42. Helmsley came out on crutches and announced that as much as he would enjoy kicking Dude Love's butt all over Ohio, he couldn't because he hadn't received clearance from his doctor to wrestle this evening. The fans boo'd but Dude Love just shrugged and once again began dancing with his "Dudettes" to his funky theme music. The shady Helmsley, who has more tricks up his sleeve than a magician, dropped the ruse and smacked Dude Love over the back with one of his crutches. The match was on. As with his other personas, the Dude proved that he could take a lickin' and keep on tickin' and slowly gained the upper hand. Sensing a shift in the momentum, Chyna intervened and cracked Dude in the ribs with the other crutch. Although Referee Chad Patton missed the infraction, he sensed foul play and ordered her to return to the back. Nevertheless, the damage had been done and Chyna's interference cost the Dude 100 points. Helmsley suspiciously appeared to be unfazed by her departure for the balance of the bout. Perhaps he should have been because Dude mounted another big comeback. Victory seemed imminent once the Dude applied the Love Handle (Mandible Claw), however one of his Dudettes climbed up onto the apron and blinded him with perfume to the eyes. Dude then stumbled right into Helmsley's Pedigree for the three count. After the bell, the turncoat Dudette took off her tie dye shirt to reveal that she was wearing a D-Generation X shirt beneath it. Helmsley referred to her as "Tori" as the two left the ring together.

The WWF Attitude era was the beginning of what would become the future of wrestling. Wrestling hasn't changed. Only the faces. What was entertaining 60 years ago is still entertaining today. I must say though, The Attitude era was as good as it gets.

Thanks for featuring one of the great jobbers; Frankie Williams. The Columbus Clipper is in the WWE Encyclopedia. It mentions that one of Frankie's 1st matches was against Ric Flair in Madison Square Garden. Frankie may not have set the world of wrestling on fire but he did perform at Great Palaces and also was willing to suffer the indignity of Piper's Pit. Our Saturday Mornings would not have been the same without him.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Tucson Convention Center, Tucson, AZ.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Teddy Long, Earl Hebner & Tim White

1. Super Astros - El Pantera over Mr. Aguila at 4:03. Mr. Aguila was introduced first and took the mic from Howard Finkel to address the Tucson crowd in Spanish. Jesus Castillo, who is a member of Los Boricuas, emerged from the back and entered the ring to join him. The two men shook hands and hugged. The promo was then interrupted by Aguila's opponent, the masked El Pantera, who also had a mic and spoke in Spanish. Castillo became quite agitated by Pantera's comments and gestured to the crowd that he was going to unmask the Mexican star. The bell rang to officially start the bout with Castillo remaining at ringside to be in Aguilla's corner. It didn't take long for him to interfere, but when he did, things didn't go as planned. Aguila was leveled by a Castillo haymaker when Pantera ducked at the last instant. Looking to atone for his miscue, Castillo removed the padding from a corner turnbuckle behind Referee Teddy Long's back. Unfortunately for Aguila, El Pantera spotted it first and rammed his opponent's forehead into the exposed steel. The dazed Aguila stumbled out of the corner and was pinned with a La Magistral Cradle. After the match, Castillo and Aguila had words with one another but seemed to patch things up before returning to the back together.

2. Dan "The Beast" Severn defeated Tiger Ali Singh (w/ Manservant Babu) by Disqualification at 6:27. Singh, a rich playboy from India, has revised "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase's shtick of humiliating people for money. Singh drew big time heat for giving a woman from the audience $100 for kissing Babu's bare feet. The stunt may have earned him 125 bonus points, but it was not enough to bring him a victory tonight against Severn. Babu did his part to assist his master by interferring constantly on his behalf. So much so, that The Beast, fed up with the manservant's shenanigans, apprehended him on the apron and locked him in a Dragon Sleeper Hold. Singh grabbed a chair and smashed it over Severn's back to break the hold and draw the DQ from Referee Earl Hebner in the process.

3. Table Match - WWF Hardcore Champion The Big Bossman vs Prince Albert. There are no pinfalls, DQs, submissions or count outs. The match is won by putting your opponent through a table. The Bossman's Hardcore title was not on the line in this bout. Despite being a relative newcomer to the WWF , Albert was well received by the crowd in Tuscon and earned 75 points for his entrance. The Bossman, who has traded in his prison guard uniform for black S.W.A.T. team attire, drew an even bigger reaction for his ring introduction and added 125 points to his total. Albert was able to match up well against the Bossman in size, but not in ring experience. Thinking that he had incapacitated his opponent sufficiently enough to warrant a high risk maneuver, Albert laid out the Bossman atop a table in the ring and began to climb up top. The former prison guard was playing possum and tossed him off the top rope and through the table to win the match at 14:22.

4. L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal w/ Sunny) defeated the Disciples of the Apocalypse (8-Ball & Skull w/ "Precious" Paul Ellering) in tag team competition at 9:34. Who would have ever thought we'd see the day when the Legion of Doom and Paul Ellering would be in opposite corners ?? Such is the world of professional wrestling. Ellering did a good job of representing his new team by cutting an outstanding promo before the bell and claimed that the D.O.A., a biker gang of thugs, was "much tougher than the over-the-hill Hawk & Animal ever were". As one would imagine, brawling and power moves dominated the action. The bikers hung in there until 8-Ball was dazed by an errant steel Halliburton briefcase smash from Ellering. The L.O.D. immediately capitalized with Hawk scoring the pinfall after the Doomsday Device.

5. Ladies Match - Sable over Jacqueline (w/ "Marvelous" Marc Mero) by DQ at 6:35. Both ladies cut good promos prior to the opening bell to boost their respective points totals, but the contest would ultimately be decided by Mero's actions. There is no love loss between Marvelous Marc and Sable ever since the couple parted ways . Mero's interference backfired when a handful of powder meant for his ex-valet accidentally blinded Jacqueline instead. A pinfall seemed imminent after she sustained a Sable Bomb (Powerbomb) moments later, however Mero pulled Referee Earl Hebner out of the ring by his ankles to break up the three count and draw the disqualification.

6. The Rock (w/ fellow Nation of Domination members Faarooq, Kama Mustafa & D'Lo Brown) beat Vader at 8:23. Although he is a heel, the fans love the Rock's charismatic promos. Michael Cole attempted to interview him backstage before the match regarding his chances against the larger Vader. Cole's query drew the People's Eyebrow and the Rock's contempt. "The Rock says know your damn role, Michael Cole, and shut your mouth !" The Rock dismissed his opponent as a "jabroni" and said that he would "lay the smackdown on Vader's candy-ass !" which gave him 75 extra points to work with. The Rock did indeed win, but not without help from the Nation of Domination. D'Lo Brown hit the Lo Down (Frog Splash) off the top rope on Vader while wearing his controversial chest protector while Mustafa & Faarooq distracted Referee Tim White. The Rock, who was dazed from a collision with Vader that sent both men sprawling to the canvas moments previous, then crawled over to make the pin.

7. Title Match - WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin vs Val Venis (w/ Ryan Shamrock). Venis earned this opportunity by defeating Jeff Jarrett during last week's episode of RAW as per Mr. McMahon. The adult film actor once again wowed the women in attendance with his trademark "Helloooooooooooooo Ladies ......" drawl while twirling the towel off his waist and gyrating his hips for them. Smashing glass then brought out the champion to loud cheers. As always, the no-nonsense Austin was all business and quickly grabbed the advantage. The champ hit a Lou Thesz Press off the ropes which was followed by a flurry of punches on the mat and and a pointed elbow drop. A commotion from the fans caused the camera to cut away to D-Generation X members "HBK" Shawn Michaels, Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Chyna coming down the aisle to ringside. Their presence enabled Venis to mount a comeback until he, too, became preoccupied with yet another distraction. "The Most Dangerous Man in the World" Ken Shamrock also came to ringside and immediately got into a confrontation with his little sister Ryan. Unhappy with her choice in men, Ken hoisted her up over his shoulder and began carrying her to the back with Ryan kicking and screaming the whole way. Venis quickly gave chase. In the meantime, D-Generation X stormed the ring after Austin had flipped off all three members. He held his own briefly, but Michaels & Helmsley eventually overpowered him after a low blow from behind on the Texas Rattlesnake by Chyna. Dude Love then raced in with a chair and cleared the ring of DX to make the save. The match was officially declared a "No Contest" by Referee Teddy Long at 14:38 due to all of the outside interference. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin retains the WWF Championship.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - UTC Arena, Chattanooga, TN.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Mike Sparks, Jim Korderas & Mike Chioda

1. Too Much (Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher & Scott "Too Hot" Taylor) beat the Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff Hardy w/ Michael Hayes) at 7:55. After pre-match and modifier adjustments, the Hardy Boyz were the favorites to win this contest, but Kaientai had other ideas. Yamaguchi-San and his Kamikaze crew have been holding a grudge against the Hardyz ever since their double count out tag team match in Columbus, Ohio. Kaientai's Sho Funaki snuck into the ring and reversed Jeff Hardy's small package cradle on Brian Christopher while Referee Mike Sparks was distracted by Michael Hayes chasing Yamaguchi-San around the ring. The official turned around to find Christopher on top and counted the pin. Jerry Lawler took great delight in Too Much's victory ! The King had showered Christopher with praise throughout the contest and was accused of "blatant bias" by Ol' JR during the commentary. Not only did Lawler deny those allegations, he also denied seeing Funaki reverse the cradle and insisted that Too Much won the match fair and square.

Never at a loss for words, Jim Cornette cut a great promo backstage in support of his New Midnight Express tag team and "Bombastic" Bob Holly in particular. (Holly was scheduled to face Christian of the Brood one-on-one in our next contest.) Cornette's ringing endorsement added 50 additional points to Bombastic Bob's total. Christian chose to do his talking in the ring and walked down the aisle with a microphone to address Cornette's comments. Just as he was about to begin his rebuttal, Mr. McMahon's "No Chance !" theme music suddenly blared over the PA system. The kingpin of the WWF emerged on the ramp along with his bungling associates Gerald Brisco & Pat Patterson. Christian began to speak and was abruptly interrupted.

Mr. McMahon: "You're new here, aren't you, kid ?"

Christian nodded.

Mr. McMahon: "What's your name again? Christopher, is it ?"

Pat Patterson then whispered something into Mr. McMahon's ear.

Mr. McMahon: "Christian ?"

Christian nodded again.

Mr. McMahon: "Alright, Christopher, Here's how it works. When I talk, that means that you shut up and listen. Got it ?"

(Loud boos from the crowd !)

Christian began to speak again and was once more interrupted by Mr. McMahon.

Mr. McMahon: "Cut his damn mic off ! I said cut it off ! "

Gerald Brisco made a slashing motion across his throat. Christian's microphone immediately went silent.

Mr. McMahon: "I'm Vince McMahon, dammit ! You never interrupt me ! If you don't like it, Christopher, then you can go wrestle down south for Uncle Ted !

(More boos from the crowd !)

Mr. McMahon: "I'm going to make this next match a little more interesting. If Christopher here wins, then the Brood get a title match against the tag team champion Headbangers next week on RAW. If Holly wins, then the New Midnight Express get the title shot. And you know what, Christopher ? I think the New Midnight Express get that match because I don't think that you have what it takes to make it in this business ! When I look in that ring, I see nothing but a punk ! I hope Holly kicks your butt !"

McMahon, Patterson and Brisco return to the back to loud boos as Christian motions to "Bring it !"

2. Christian (w/ The Brood's Gangrel & Edge) over "Bombastic" Bob Holly (w/ Jim Cornette & The New Midnight Expresses' "Bodacious" Bart Gunn) at 6:58. In addition to the points he received from Jim Cornette's earlier promo, Holly further boosted his total after a roll on his Cheating Modifier. Christian was easily the fan favorite thanks to Mr. McMahon's tongue lashing and rewarded the fans for their support with some flashy aerial maneuvers. A Missile Drop Kick from the top rope set up Christian's Impaler finisher (Inverted Double Underhook Facebuster) for the three count.

Christian was celebrating in the ring with Edge and Gangrel when Mr. McMahon's "No Chance !" music began playing once more. Mr. McMahon re-emerged on the ramp with Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco in tow to loud boos. Christian immediately grabbed Howard Finkel's mircrophone.

Christian: "Now what ??"

Mr. McMahon (humbly): "I have to admit... you showed me something tonight, kid."

(The fans cheer!)

Christian: "The Brood get a title match against the Headbangers next week, right ?? All these people heard you say it !"

Mr. McMahon: "That's right."

(Loud cheers from the fans!) Christian nods triumphantly as Gangrel and Edge pat him on the back.

Mr. McMahon: "Except that .... "

Jerry Lawler: "Uh, oh, here it comes JR !"

Mr. McMahon: "It'll be Edge & Gangrel wrestling that match for the championship next week and not you, Christopher !"

Jerry Lawler: "What ??"

Christian's jaw dropped in obvious disappointment as the fans boo.

Mr. McMahon (sneering): "And do you know why, Christopher ? BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE YOU, THAT'S WHY !!"

Jerry Lawler: "He sure told him ! You shouldn't get on Mr. McMahon's bad side !"

JR: "This isn't right, King ! Christian's getting a raw deal here in my opinion."

Jerry Lawler: "He's Mr. McMahon ! He can do what he wants !"

"No Chance!" plays again as Mr. McMahon returns backstage with Brisco and Patterson.

3. The Nation of Domination's Kama Mustafa (w/ Faarooq, D'Lo Brown & Mark Henry) over Test by DQ at 4:50. This might as well have been a Handicap Match for Test due to the rampant and relentless interference of Mustafa's fellow Nation members. Referee Mike Chioda did his best, but it was impossible for him to catch everything. Test's patience finally ran out after he was blatantly tripped to the canvas by Faarooq. He made the mistake of pushing Chioda to the mat after the official had refused his demand to send Mustafa's corner men to the back. Chioda immediately called for the bell and awarded the match to Mustafa by disqualification.

4. Dumpster Match - Road Dogg Jesse James of D-Generation X (w/ "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn) vs Chainsaw Charlie. There are no pinfalls, DQs, submissions or count outs. The match is won by throwing your opponent into an open dumpster at ringside. "Oh, you didn't know ?? Your ass better call somebody !" brought out "the D-O-Double G". D-Generation X are heels, but they appeal to some of the WWF's fan base. Like all of the DX members, Road Dogg has his fans who shout his catchphrases right along with him. Chainsaw Charlie (Middle-aged crazy Terry Funk) apparently heard enough and attacked the Road Dogg before the bell to inflict 100 points worth of damage. This bout quickly took on the characteristics of a Hardcore Match with both combatants battering one another with whatever objects they could find underneath the ring. Billy Gunn did manage to help his New Age Outlaw partner out with some dirty double teaming, however Charlie sent him stumbling to the back after spraying the Bad Ass in the eyes with a fire extinguisher. Minutes later, Road Dogg rammed the back of Charlie's head into the dumpster with a Russian Leg Sweep and then tossed him inside for the victory at 8:01.

5. WWF Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart defeated "Lethal Weapon' Steve Blackman in a non-title match at 7:43. Blackman brought a duffel bag of martial weapons with him to ringside, but was never able to use any of them during the bout. Hart was in control for much of the match, helped in part by a missed corner charge in which Blackman jammed his knee hard into the turnbuckle. The Lethal Weapon's miscue was the perfect prelude to Hart's Sharpshooter finisher with Blackman tapping out to the grueling submission hold.

6. Adult film star Val Venis (w/ Ryan Shamrock) over "The World's Most Dangerous Man" (and Ryan's big brother) Ken Shamrock in controversial fashion at 5:50. Ryan nearly cost her man the match when she reached into the ring and accidentally tripped Venis to the mat. Ken Shamrock immediately pounced on the mistake and applied his Ankle Lock on the prone Venis. The former porn star quickly tapped out, but Referee Mike Chioda had taken a bad bump to the canvas and missed the submission as he tried to shake out the cobwebs. Looking to redeem herself, Ryan then raced into the ring and walloped her brother in the back of the head with a loaded purse. It was lights out for Ken Shamrock. Val Venis labored to climb up to the top rope, but delivered The Money Shot (Diving Splash) finisher with the dazed Chioda crawling over to count the pin. When the World's Most Dangerous Man finally came to, he went ballistic and flattened Chioda with a Belly To Belly Suplex before storming to the back in search of Venis & his sister.

7. "HBK" Shawn Michaels & Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X (w/ Chyna) defeated WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & Dude Love in our tag team Main Event at 13:13. Michaels was holding court in the ring and cutting a promo when the Dude & Austin rushed in and attacked before the bell. DX were caught off guard and lost 50 points to start. Once the match officially got under way, Triple H and HBK took control and wore down Dude Love by preventing him from tagging out. Referee Mike Sparks had his hands full trying to keep the over-anxious Austin from entering. All mayhem broke loose, however, once the official was knocked to the canvas. The resilient Dude found his second wind and clamped the Love Handle (Mandible Claw) onto Helmsley prompting Chyna to rush into the ring and break the hold with a chair shot from behind. A succession of finishing moves quickly followed. Much to the crowd's delight, Austin KO'd Chyna with the Stone Cold Stunner, but then turned right into Michaels' Sweet Chin Music Superkick. In the meantime, Triple H had given Dude Love a Pedigree onto the now-dented chair that Chyna brought into the ring. Sparks recovered to count the pin for Helmsley. HBK & Triple H pulled the woozy Chyna from the ring and helped her to the back.

WWF Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Selland Arena, Fresno, CA

Commentators: Michael Cole & Jim Cornette

Ring Announcer: Tony Chimel

Referees: Chad Patton, Jack Doan & Earl Hebner

1. Matt Hardy (w/ Jeff Hardy & Michael Hayes) vs. Kaientai's Dick Togo (w/ Yamaguchi-San & Men's Teioh)

Prior to the match, Michael Hayes was cutting a promo in the ring with Matt Hardy when Terri Runnels came out with a microphone of her own and interrupted them. Runnels, aka Marlena, has been looking for someone to manage after parting ways with Goldust. She praised the Hardy Boyz as an exciting, up-and-coming young team in the WWF and offered up her services to them. Terri said that she would put them on the fast track to tag team gold if they would give her the opportunity. Matt sheepishly declined the proposition, however Michael Hayes was not so kind. "They don't need your services, lady, because they have me ! I know more about tag team wrestling than you'll ever know so take a hike !" Terri just shrugged her shoulders with an "Oh, well," and returned to the back. Fully aware of the bad blood existing between Kaientai and the Hardyz, Referee Chad Patton ordered both grapplers' respective corner men to return to the back before the contest got under way. Togo held the advantage in the early going mainly due to the points that were deducted from Matt's total after Terri's interruption, but a missed Senton Splash from the top rope abruptly shifted the momentum in Hardy's favor. Matt would go on to hit the Twist of Fate (Front Facelock Cutter), but Chad Patton had taken a bad spill to the canvas and was unable to count the pin. Hardy was trying to help the dazed official get back to his feet when the scorned Terri Runnels ran back down to ringside and tossed her microphone to Togo. The Kaientai member then bashed Hardy in the back of the head with it to score the winning pinfall at 7:36.

2. Scorpio vs. Tiger Ali Singh (w/ Manservant Babu)

Singh racked up a lot of points before this bout ever got started. First, the rich playboy from India cost his opponent 50 points by interrupting Scorpio's backstage interview with Kevin Kelly. Then he added 125 points to his own score by drawing some serious heel heat from the crowd prior to the match introductions. Singh selected two people from the crowd to get in the ring and participate in a "Begging Contest" for $100. Whichever fan groveled and pleaded more for the money would be declared the winner. Apparently, Singh was not content that the winner had humiliated themselves sufficiently enough and made them crawl across the ring on their hands and knees to Babu for their money. Singh then added an additional 25 points with a roll on his Size Modifier before finally locking up with Scorpio. As it turned out, the bonus points failed to bring him a victory. Singh was Drop Kicked into his manservant who was up on the apron attempting to interfere. The collision knocked Babu to the floor and sent Singh sprawling to the canvas. Scorpio then hit the Tumbleweed (Diving Corkscrew Sommersault Leg Drop) from the top rope to gain the three count at 6:48.

3. Prince Albert vs. The Nation of Domination's D'Lo Brown (w/ Mark Henry)

Both grapplers boosted their respective totals with good promos before the opening bell, but D'Lo lost points when Mark Henry accidentally blinded him with a handful of powder to the eyes after the match had gotten under way. Things went from bad to worse for Brown once the action moved OOR. No doubt looking for revenge after D'Lo had cost him a match against The Rock on Monday Night RAW a few weeks back, Vader ran down to ringside and laid out Henry with a Clothesline before crotching Brown on the steel barricade railing. Senior official Earl Hebner, who was busy sending Albert to a neutral corner and oblivious to Vader's interference OOR, then put the ten count on Brown. Your winner via Count Out at 3:52 - Prince Albert.

4. Chainsaw Charlie & Cactus Jack vs. Southern Justice (Mark Canterbury & Dennis Knight) w/ Tennessee Lee.

Cactus and Charlie were fired up for this tag contest and anxious to get it on with Southern Justice when Mr. McMahon's "No Chance !" theme music suddenly began blaring over the PA system. The WWF kingpin ambled out with his associates Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco to loud boos. McMahon said that he had something special in mind for this particular contest. He paced a lit bit, rubbed his chin thoughtfully, and changed the match stipulations to that of a Table Match at the last minute - no pinfalls, no submissions, no DQs or count outs. The match will be won when one team puts a member of the opposing team through a table. Satisfied with his decision, McMahon and company then smugly returned to the back. The "No DQ" provision seemed to favor Cactus and Chainsaw who were free to use whatever objects and weapons that they could get their hands on without repercussion, however they soon found out that their burly opponents (formerly known as the Godwinns) were also well-suited to the contest's new conditions. Both teams had several opportunities to win, but the match went 9:04 before Canterbury Powerbombed Charlie through a table for the victory.

The Rock then came down to the ring to get a few things off his chest. "Finally, the Rock has returned to Fresno ! garnered some loud cheers from the crowd before he continued. "Vader, who in the blue hell do you think you are messing with the Nation of Domination ?? You may think you're done with The Nation, but The Nation ain't done with you by a long shot ! The Rock laid the Smackdown on your monkey ass once and don't think he won't do it again ! And now let me turn my attention to that other roody poo jabroni Owen Hart. The Rock is the People's Champion and he's got his eye on your Intercontinental Title ! Be sure to shine up that belt real pretty for me. The Rock will take you down Know Your Role Boulevard which is on the corner of Jabroni Drive and check you directly in the Smackdown Hotel ......... If you smell what The Rock is cookin' !!"

5. X-Pac of D-Generation X (w/ Chyna) vs. Savio Vega of Los Boricuas (w/ Miguel Perez Jr. and Puerto Rican Flag)

Savio earned himself 100 points for a great promo backstage with his Los Boricuas stable. In contrast, X-Pac lost 50 points when his in-ring promo was interrupted by Jacqueline. "Marvelous" Marc Mero's valet demanded that Chyna, who is the WWF Ladies Champion, put her title on the line. It should be noted that Chyna had eliminated Jacqueline during the Ladies Championship Tournament with some help from Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Jacqueline has been seeking a rematch ever since. Chyna stared down at her menacingly but gave no response to the challenge. And now onto the match -

As Michael Cole pointed out, both competitors have "educated feet" and highly effective Spin Kicks. X-Pac also has the Bronco Buster in his repertoire which he was able to execute on Vega in the corner. Sensing trouble, Miguel Perez attempted to interfere. but only made things worse for Savio by reaching into the ring and accidentally tripping him. Chyna immediately rushed over and took Perez out of the picture with a DDT on the floor. Jacqueline then came back down the aisle and got into a confrontation with her. In the meantime, Vega cracked the Puerto Rican flag over X-Pac's back while the two were battling OOR. Savio mananged to roll himself back inside the ring in the nick of time, but X-Pac was counted out by Referee Jack Doan at 6:36.

6. WWF Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart (w/ yellow and black "Danger" attire) vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqueline)

This is a non-title bout. Hart cut a good interview with Kevin Kelly before the match and addressed The Rock with a couple of catchphrases of his own - "Enough is enough !" and "Put up or shut up !" to earn 50 extra points. Owen then got off to a great start in this match by attacking Mero while the Marvelous One was showboating for the fans with his rendition of the Ali Shuffle. To compound that, Jacqueline accidentally smacked Mero across the face with a loud slap when Owen ducked out of the way at the last instant. Everything was going right for Owen until The Rock returned to ringside. He immediately began jawing with Owen and drew him into a heated confrontation. Mero took advantage of the situation by rolling up Hart from behind for the three count at 7:09. The Rock had himself a good laugh as he strutted to the back.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Broom County Arena, Binghampton, NY.


Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler

Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel

Referees: Chad Patton, Jim Korderas & Teddy Long

1. Hardcore Match. Al Snow (w/ Head) vs. "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal (w/ Hardhat)

To prove to Snow and the WWF fans that he was indeed " A Real Man's Man", Regal agreed to participate in this Hardcore match. He got off to a great start by racking up bonus points for being soundly boo'd and jeered by the crowd during his entrance. On top of that, Regal attacked Snow before the opening bell to get the early advantage. Perhaps in the hopes that it would offer him some measure of protection, Regal continued to wear his hardhat. It didn't take long for Snow to remove the hard plastic helmet and bop Regal in the noggin with it. Many other objects came into play during this bout including a sledgehammer, a speed limit sign, Snow's mannequin "Head", a beer bottle and several folding chairs. Regal pinned Snow with a Piledriver onto one of the steel chairs that was lying in the ring at 11:08.

In a backstage segment, Vader is in WWF Commissioner Sergeant Slaughter's office demanding a match against The Nation Of Domination's D'Lo Brown tonight. Vader has had his problems recently with The Nation and D'Lo in particular. Brown's Lo Down Frog Splash enabled The Rock to pin Vader a few weeks back on an episode of RAW. Vader was so irate that he said he would take on the whole Nation in a Handicap Match if need be. The Commish said that he would "see what he could do".

2. WWF Light Heavyweight Champion Taka Michinoku vs. Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher (w/ Too Much tag team partner Scott "Too Hot" Taylor)

This is a non-title match. Taka had a rough interview with Kevin Kelly prior to the contest. The Japanese star struggled with his English and was then interrupted by Too Much who grabbed the mic and cut a promo of their own in hip-hop jargon. Once the action got under way, Jerry Lawler continued to praise Christopher's talent, but once again denied JR's allegations of favoritism or being affiliated with "Too Sexy" in any way. Much to the King's dismay, Scotty Taylor, while performing some new dance moves on the apron for the fans, accidentally bumped into Christopher who was setting himself on the top rope to deliver his Tennessee Jam/Hip Hop Drop (Diving Leg Drop). Too Sexy crashed to the mat and was pinned by Michinoku at 6:04.

Jacqueline cut a promo in the ring with "Marvelous" Marc Mero once again challenging WWF Ladies Champion Chyna to a title match. Chyna had previously defeated Jacqueline during the championship tournament, but not without the help of Triple H. Never at a loss for words or controversy himself, Mero, who wore a long brunette wig in the ring, played the role of Chyna in this little vignette and kept coming up with excuses for why "she" couldn't or wouldn't put the belt on the line. The faux Chyna conceded that Jacqueline was the better wrestler of the two and finally admitted that "she" was afraid of losing the belt in a rematch. Mero cowered in the corner and begged Jacqueline to leave "her" alone.

3. Chainz (aka Brian Lee) with "Precious" Paul Ellering & The Disciples of the Apocalypse vs. Kurrgan the Interrogator with The Jackyl and The Truth Commission

Given all the outsiders milling about OOR, this match was a potential powder keg waiting to explode. Referee Teddy Long had his hands full, but did a good job of limiting the interference until the very end. Kurrgan, who stands 6' 10", literally caught a "big" break by rolling on his Size Modifier to bolster his chances while Chainz was aided by his ring Savvy and experience. Kurrgan was able to get his hands on Ellering's steel halliburton briefcase, but had it sent into his own face with a running Big Boot by his opponent. Chainz then hit a Death Valley Driver to put the Interrogator down for the three count. After the bell, The Truth Commission rushed into the ring with the Disciples of the Apocalypse doing likewise. A wild free-for-all broke loose and required the services of several WWF officials to restore order.

The Nation of Domination cut a promo on Vader backstage featuring D'Lo Brown & Faarooq. Brown said that if Vader wants a match with him, then he needs to go through "this" man first. "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry then walked out to join the duo. Henry stared into the camera with perspiration dripping off his face. "Here's your opponent tonight, Vader, " Faarooq said. "Show me what you got !"

4. WWF Tag Team Title Match. Challengers The Brood (Edge & Gangrel w/ Christian) vs. the defending Champions The Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher w/ Boombox of Marilyn Manson music)

The Brood earned this title shot after Christian defeated "Bombastic" Bob Holly of The New Midnight Express during last week's edition of RAW. Before the bell, the arena went completely dark. The Undertaker came out to eerie music and addressed Gangrel with a proposition. "I can use someone like you and the Brood in my Ministry. Forget about this match and come and join me." The invitation seemed to catch Gangrel and company off guard. The Brood huddled together to discuss and then declined the offer. The 'Taker stood silently and stared at them with cold eyes. "Very well," he finally mumbled in an ominous tone. Restless to get the match underway, the Headbangers attacked, but Edge and Gangrel were ready for them. The Brood held their own and proved to be worthy challengers for the championship. Mosh was flattened with a Double Back Elbow Smash off the ropes and then sustained Edge's Downward Spiral (Reverse STO). Thrasher rushed in to break up the subsequent pin attempt prompting Gangrel to also enter the fray. Things got out of hand in a hurry leaving Referee Chad Patton no choice but to disqualify both teams at 7:23. The battle continued to rage in the ring after the bell. No one seemed to notice the Undertaker walking down the aisle with conviction. The Dead Man was a one-man-wrecking crew. Wielding the Headbanger's boombox as a weapon, 'Taker laid out both Christian and Thrasher with vicious smashes. Mosh was then driven into the mat with a Chokeslam as was Edge moments later. Gangrel then received a Tombstone Piledriver to complete the carnage. The arena went dark once more with the Undertaker returning to the back to his ghoulish music. Though battered and bruised, the Headbangers retain the WWF Tag Team Titles.

Pyrotechnics and "Are You Ready ? Break it Down !" theme music brought Hunter Hearst Helmsley and "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna of D-Generation X down to the ring for a promo on Jacqueline and "Marvelous" Marc Mero. Helmsley called Mero "Johnny" in reference to the Marvelous One's stint in WCW as "Johnny B. Badd". Triple H said that "Johnny" was "a big fish in a small pond down south", and "reminded" him that he's "a small (while pointing to his crotch) fish in the vast ocean that is the WWF." Helmsley went on to say that D-Generation X were the great white sharks of the WWF ocean and that everyone else swam in their wake. Triple H said that Jacqueline will get her title match, but only if she and "her boy Johnny" could beat him and Chyna in a mixed tag match next week on RAW. Helmsley ended the challenge by saying that he had "two words" for them, to which the crowd shouted "Suck it !" while he did a crotch chop.


5. Vader vs. "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry of the Nation of Domination (w/ Faarooq & D'Lo Brown)

Right about now, Vader must be thinking to himself that he has bitten off more than he could chew by engaging in a feud with the Nation of Domination. Badly outnumbered, he has come up on the short end of the stick thus far, but refuses to back down to them. It was more of the same this evening. Vader proved that he could go toe-to toe with Mark Henry just as he has been able to do with other members of the stable in previous weeks, but outside interference once again did him in. D'Lo pulled the top rope down causing Vader to take a bad fall out of the ring and crash hard to the floor below. Henry won the match via Count Out at 5:55 when Vader was unable to get himself back inside the ring in time. The Nation of Domination triple-teamed Vader after the bell until the Legion of Doom (Hawk & Animal) ran down to ringside to make the save,

6. "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn of D-Generation X (w/ the Road Dogg) vs. Jeff Jarrett (w/ Tennessee Lee)

Jarrett has had some history with Road Dogg in the past and was clearly preoccupied by his presence OOR this evening. The resulting loss in points was offset somewhat by a roll on his Cheating Modifier. Using the bottom rope to gain additional leverage, Jarrett was able to inflict damage on Billy Gunn's left knee with the prolonged use of his Figure Four Leglock but could not induce a submission. Tennesseee Lee then tried to lend a hand by tossing one of his cowboy boots into the ring for Jarrett to use but overshot his reach when Road Dogg interfered with his toss. Jarrett was bending over to pick up the shoe when he was driven face-first into the mat and pinned with Gunn's Fameasser finisher (Leg Drop Bulldog) at 7:23.

7. "The Big Red Machine" Kane (w/ Paul Bearer) vs. "The Phenom" Undertaker

Paul Bearer did his best for Kane. He cut a good promo before the match to give the Big Red Machine additional points to work with and then distracted Referee Chad Patton several times during the action to enable Kane to cheat. The Dead Man was simply an unstoppable force tonight. Clearly a man on a mission, the 'Taker brought the same fury with him to the Main Event that he had exhibited earlier in the tag team championship match. Fans were treated to a barrage of corner uppercuts, the Old School rope walk arm twist and clubbing blow from the top rope, a Flying Clothesline that nearly took Kane out of his boots, and a crushing Sideslam before ending things with the Tombstone Piledriver at 9:24. Your winner - The Undertaker.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Arrowhead Pond, Anaheim, CA

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler

Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel

Referees: Jack Doan, Jim Korderas & Mike Chioda

McMahon in the house ! We see Mr. McMahon getting out of a limo in the parking garage and entering the arena. He confers with WWF personnel and then walks down some corriders in search of his office. McMahon spots a door with his name on it and opens it. We can see that it is dark inside. A hand suddenly pushes him in with the door slamming shut behind him. The mysterious hand then rips McMahon's name off the door to reveal that it is a janitor's closet. McMahon goes for the knob but finds it locked. He pounds on the door demanding to be let out.

1. Light Heavyweight Triple Threat Match - Jeff Hardy vs. Kaientai's Sho Funaki vs. Scott "Too Hot" Taylor of Too Much.

All three participants had allies with them at ringside which would play a key factor in the outcome of the match. Jeff had brother Matt in his corner, Funaki had Dick Togo, Men's Teioh & Yamaguchi-San with him while Taylor was accompanied to the ring by tag team partner Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher. Taylor and Funaki added points to their respective totals with good promos before the match. Sporting a Stetson hat and red bandana tied about his neck, Sho Funaki lip-synced to some John Wayne dialogue from "True Grit". It made absolutely no sense but the fans loved it anyway. The bad blood and bitter feud between the Hardy Boyz and Funaki's stable Kaientai continued to escalate this evening. When the time came for Jeff to do his promo, cameras picked up on him being jumped backstage by Kaientai members Men's Teioh and Dick Togo. Hardy lost 200 points for the assault which severely hurt his chances of winning the bout. Jeff was able to get some measure of retribution by catching Funaki with a Twist of Fate (Front Facelock Cutter), but was draw into an altercation OOR between his brother Matt and Dick Togo. While Referee Jack Doan was trying to break up that melee and get Jeff back inside the ring, Scott Taylor was busy setting himself on the top rope to deliver a Diving Elbow Drop onto the still down-and-out Funaki. Yamaguchi-San reached into the ring and pulled Funaki out of the way in the nick of time with Taylor's Flying Elbow missing the mark. Funaki then crawled over to make the cover on Scotty with Jack Doan finally turning around to count the 1-2-3 at 11:21. Brian Christopher tried to enter the ring to break up the pin but was held up by Men's Teioh.

Mr. McMahon's bungling associates Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson are outside the door of the janitor's closet with a ring full of keys. They try one key after another but none of them can unlock the door. McMahon is growing more agitated by the second. He threatens to fire everyone in the company. We can see the New Age Outlaws' "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn and the Road Dogg laughing in the background.

Down the hallway, Droz is in WWF Commissioner Sergeant Slaughter's office asking for a match against European Champion The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust. "Make it a non-title match ! I don't care, Sarge ! I know that I can beat this guy. Just let me prove it to you !" Slaughter informs Droz that Goldust isn't here, but said that he does have an opponent for him. "Let's see how you do against Bradshaw tonight."

2. Droz vs. Blackjack Bradshaw (w/ Blackjack Windham)

Though primarily a tag team wrestler, Bradshaw appeared to be the favorite to win this singles contest after receiving ally interference from his tag team partner Barry Windham. Blackjack Windham distracted Referee Jim Korderas allowing Bradshaw to choke out Droz with his trademark bullrope which he often brings to ringside for the Blackjacks' matches. Bradshaw then added a crushing Powerbomb, played to the crowd a little bit, and lackadaisically draped himself across his opponent for the cover. Droz still had something left in the tank, however, and surprised the big cowboy with a crucifix cradle to get the pin at 4:30.

Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco finally get the door to the janitor's closet open. Mr. McMahon bursts out in a rage and demands to be given a microphone. He sees the Big Bossman preparing for his match against Mankind later in the program and reprimands him. "Where the hell were you ? I'm paying you to protect me !!" McMahon then heads to the ring in a huff.

3. X-Pac of D-Generation X vs. Edge of The Brood

This match never took place. The head of the WWF stormed down to ringside with "No Chance!" theme music blaring over the PA system. Mr. McMahon snarled "Get out of my ring dammit !!" and sent X-Pac and Edge to the back. He then went on a twenty minute tirade about the indignity just done to him backstage. McMahon vowed to find the guilty party, but added that he had a "pretty good idea" of who was responsible. "There's no one that I hate more in this company than "Stone Cold" Steve Austin !" (The crowd cheers !) "Austin, I can't prove it yet, but if I find out that you were the one behind this, I'll have you indefinitely suspended and stripped of your WWF Title !"

The sound of smashing glass then brought the fans to their feet and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin down to the ring with a mic in one hand and a six pack of beer in the other. "Vince, you and I both know that if it were me, I'd have put you in a far worse place than that damn closet..... but here's to the S.O.B. who had the balls to do it !" Austin then pulls a can off the six pack, snaps it open and takes a swig as the fans cheer !

Upon seeing McMahon seething, the Texas Rattlesnake remarked, "You're having a bad night ain't ya, Vince ?" Austin pulls off another can of beer from his six pack and tosses it over to McMahon. McMahon looks to the crowd, gets some cheers of encouragement and snaps it open. Before he can take a sip, however, Austin gives him a kick to the gut followed by the Stone Cold Stunner. The Rattlesnake then pours the rest of his beer on McMahon, flips him off with double middle fingers and walks back to the dressing room to a loud ovation.

4. L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal w/ Sunny) vs. The Nation of Domination (Kama Mustafa & D'Lo Brown w/ Faarooq)

The Nation got off to a great start well before the opening bell had sounded. Faarooq cut a promo on Vader (the Nation's favorite target as of late) to earn his team 100 points. Brown and Mustafa then jumped L.O.D. 2000 from behind during Hawk and Animal's entrance to add to their total. To top it off, the Nation rolled on their Tag Team Bonus Modifier and ran up their score even further. Despite all the extra points, it would prove not to be the Nation's night afterall. Vader ran down to ringside and hit D'Lo Brown with his Vader Bomb (Slingshot Splash from the Apron) while Referee Jack Doan was busy arguing with Faarooq in the Nation's corner. Doan turned around to find Hawk making the cover on D'Lo and counted the pin for LOD 2000 at 7:30.

Meanwhile, Val Venis and his valet Ryan Shamrock are scheming in a back office. Ryan is trying to devise a plan on how to help Dan Severn defeat her big brother Ken Shamrock in tonight's next match. She comes up with an idea and whispers it into Vals' ear. The Big Valbowski smiles and nods. Ready to put their plan into action, the two head for the door only to discover that they, too, have been locked inside.

5. "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock vs. Dan "The Beast" Severn

Both of these men come from Mixed Martial Arts backgrounds and are well-familiar with one another. Severn "reacquainted" himself with his colleague by interrupting Shamrock's backstage interview with Kevin Kelly prior to the match. Severn told Kelly that he routinely kicked Shamrock's butt in MMA and will do likewise here in the WWF. Shamrock was boiling with anger and couldn't wait to get his hands on Severn once the two were finally in the ring together. It came as no surprise that Shamrock attacked before the bell and took the early advantage. Both competitors employed various grueling submission holds on one another during the contest with Severn ultimately tapping out to Shamrock's trademark Ankle Lock at 6:04. Finally extricating themselves from their confines backstage, Venis and Ryan raced down to ringside only to see Shamrock's hand being raised in victory by Referee Jim Korderas.

Hunter Hearst Helmsely is backstage sharing a laugh with fellow D-Generation X members Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. The cameraman asks them "What's so funny?" Triple H tells them "None of your business ! Now take a hike !" and pushes the cameraman out of the way.

6. Mankind (w/ Shirt & Tie) vs. WWF Hardcore Champion The Big Bossman (w/ Black S.W.A.T. Team Attire)

This was not a Hardcore Match so the Bossman's title was not on the line. Mankind cut a great promo in the ring, gleefully cackled "Have a nice day !" and then proceeded to catch the Hardcore Champ with a Double Axe Handle in the back while the Bossman was climbing through the ropes for the match introductions. Watching the action from a monitor in the back and still a bit woozy from the Stone Cold Stunner that he suffered earlier in the program, Mr. McMahon immediately dispatched Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco to ringside to lend the Bossman a hand. The duo initially proved to be helpful by distracting Referee Mike Chioda just long enough to buy the Bossman extra time and enabled him to kick out of a pinning situation after he sustained Mankind's Double Arm DDT. Patterson erred big time, however, when he tried to toss the former prison guard his nightstick and accidentally hit the Big Bossman in the noggin with it. The Bossman staggered around the ring and was pinned by Mankind with a Small Package at 9:14.

Backstage, security personnel present Mr. McMahon with surveillance footage captured by one of their cameras. They inform him that the recording will reveal the identity of the culprit who locked him inside the janitor's closet earlier this evening. McMahon quickly cues up the segment and watches it intently. We see a wicked smile slowly come over his face.

7. Mixed Tag Team Match. D-Generation X's Hunter Hearst Helmsley & the WWF Ladies Champion & "Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero & Jacqueline with the condition that if Mero and Jacqueline win, Jacqueline would receive a title match against Chyna for the women's championship.

The contest was about to begin when "No Chance!" music brought out Mr. McMahon who said that he had a special surprise for Triple H and Chyna. McMahon announced that he had changed the stipulations of our Main Event to that of a "Contract on a Pole Match". A document forcing Chyna to defend the Ladies Title was folded inside an envelope and attached to the top of a pole that WWF attendants were now setting up in a neutral corner of the ring. If D-Generation X reached the envelope first, they could tear up the contract and nullify the title match, however if Mero's team got the envelope first, then Jacqueline would get the title opportunity. Triple H and Chyna protested, but McMahon said that they would lose by forfeit if they refused to wrestle. D-Generation reluctantly agreed. Triple H grabbed Howard Finkel's microphone and insisted that they would still win despite the new terms. Helmsley seemed poised to make good on his prediction after catching Mero with a High Knee Smash off the ropes, but Marvelous Marc recovered in time to give him a Belly to Back Suplex off the top rope with the envelope dangling just inches above Helmsley's fingers. This match came down to Jacqueline and Chyna battling atop the turnbuckle for the contract with the "Ninth Wonder of the World" being knocked down to the mat after having her forehead rammed repeatedly into the steel pole. The envelope now securely in her grasp, Jacqueline won the contest for her team at 10:53 and earned herself a title match against Chyna in the process.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Arco Arena, Sacramento, CA

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler

Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel

Referees: Chad Patton, Tim White & Earl Hebner

1. El Pantera vs. Jesus Castillo of Los Boricuas (w/ Jose Estrada Jr. & Miguel Perez Jr.)

Castillo and his Los Boricuas posse cut a great promo in Spanish at ringside before the bell which went over big time with the Latino fans in attendance at the Arco Arena. Not to be outdone, the masked Mexican luchador El Pantera snatched the mic away from them and added some Spanish of his own. Apparently his response offended Castillo who immediately charged at him. Pantera was ready, however, and sent his opponent face-first into the steel ring steps with a Drop Toe Hold. The bell then rang to officially begin the contest. These two light heavyweights quickly hit some dazzling high spots on one another before the action once again returned to the floor. Castillo's stablemates interfered when the luchador began to get the upperhand OOR. Perez and Estrada combined to give El Pantera a Double Hot Shot onto the barricade railing surrounding ringside while Castillo distracted Referee Chad Pattton. The Mexican star was unable to recover in time to make Patton's ten count. Your winner via Count Out at 3:01 - Jesus Castillo.

Backstage segment in Japanese with English subtitles. Yamaguchi-San is trying to persuade WWF Light Heavyweight Champion Taka Michinoku to join his Kaientai stable. Michinoku emphatically declines the proposition. Taka is then surrounded by Kaientai members Dick Togo, Sho Funaki and Men's Teioh. They are trying to strong-arm him into changing his mind but Michinoku will have nothing to do with them. Yamaguchi-San says "we can do this the hard way or we can do this the easy way, but one way or another, the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship will belong to Kaientai."

2. The Disciples of the Apocalypse (8-Ball & Skull w/ Chainz and "Precious" Paul Ellering) vs. The Truth Commission (Recon & Sniper w/ Kurrgan the Interrogator & The Jackyl)

As with the Kurrgan/Chainz match from two weeks ago on RAW, this one threatened to erupt into a Pier Six Brawl at any given moment. Referee Tim White had his hands full but managed to maintain order to help decide a winner. The Truth Commission's spiritual and inspirational leader the Jackyl provided numerous distractions from OOR which gave Recon and Sniper valuable bonus points to work with enroute to victory. Recon (aka Bull Buchanan) showed some savvy by rolling through on Skull's running Powerslam and grabbing a handful of the biker's pants to secure the winning pinfall at 7:12.

Backstage segment. Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco are in Mr. McMahon's office helping the boss piece together the matches for the WWF's upcoming "Judgement Day: In Your House" pay-per-view. Various wrestlers' names are being bantered about. McMahon writes some of them on a pad; others he ignores. "How about the Big Boss Man ?" Patterson suggests. McMahon shoots him a dirty look. Patterson realizes that he's hit a nerve here. The former prison guard-turned-body guard has been in McMahon's doghouse ever since the WWF CEO was unceremoniously locked inside a janitor's closet while on the Boss Man's watch. "The Boss Man should defend his Hardcore Title against Mankind," Brisco pipes up, "After all, Mankind did beat him in a non-title match." McMahon gives Patterson another dirty look. Patterson knows full well that his blunder led to Mankind's victory in that match. Vince is watching Mankind walking around backstage on a monitor. Mankind is having an animated discussion with his sock puppet "Mr. Socko". McMahon shakes his head and burries his face in his hands. He looks at the monitor again. Mankind walks by Al Snow who is listening intently to his mannequin "Head". Snow holds a finger to the mannequin's lips and whispers "Shhhh !" Apparently Al doesn't want Mankind to overhear their conversation. McMahon shakes his head again. "Tell me he knows that thing is made out of Styrofoam," Vince mutters. Brisco and Patterson are afraid to answer him. McMahon sighs and scribbles something down on his pad. "Let's move on."

3. "Lethal Weapon" Steve Blackman (w/ Bag of Martial Arts Weapons) vs. Gangrel of the Brood (w/ Edge & Christian)

The fans were into Blackman's entrance which featured him wielding glow-in-the-dark escrima sticks and rewarded the "Lethal Weapon" with 100 additional points. Blackman tacked on another 100 points when he attacked Gangrel with the Filipino fighting sticks before the opening bell sounded. Gangrel was in a heap of trouble throughout this contest, but got some much-needed help from his corner men after Referee Earl Hebner had been knocked to the canvas. Christian pushed the "Lethal Weapon" off the top rope while the martial arts star was setting himself to deliver a high-risk maneuver. Edge then snuck into the ring and planted the dazed Blackman with his Downward Spiral (Reverse STO) before dragging Gangrel on top of him for a pin cover. Hebner shook out the cobwebs and crawled over to count the 1-2-3 at 6:42.

After the match, Gangrel remained in the ring to cut a promo on the Undertaker. The Vampire Warrior justified why he and the Brood refused to join the 'Taker's Ministry. "I don't know if this is a good idea, JR !" Jerry Lawler quipped. "Your heart may be black, Undertaker," Gangrel continued, "But we come from the other side of darkness."

The arena suddenly went dark and the Undertaker's eerie music began to play. "This can only mean one thing, King !" Jim Ross shouted. The Deadman slowly walked down the aisle and entered the ring. Gangrel begged off but the Undertaker grabbed him by the throat and lifted him two feet off the mat. "You dare to lecture me about darkness ??" he snarled. The 'Taker seemed poised to deliver a Chokeslam when Christian and Edge snuck up from behind him and gave the Deadman a Con-Chair-To (Double Chair Smash to the head). The Undertaker collapsed to the canvas in a heap. Edge and Christian then assisted the gasping Gangrel get back to his feet and helped him out of the ring. The Brood were heading to the back when Gangrel abruptly turned around and raised a hand to the rafters. In a scene reminiscent from the horror movie "Carrie", gallons of "blood" rained down from above onto the still-prone Undertaker. JR called it a "Blood Bath" and wondered allowed what effect it would have on the Deadman. Completely covered in the mysterious red substance, the 'Taker slowly sat up (as only the Undertaker can) and stared at Gangrel with menacing intent. The Brood then beat a hasty retreat to the back.

4. Sable (w/ "The Grind" Dance) vs. Luna Vachon (w/ The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust)

Luna cut a good promo before the match, but lost her temper when she failed to "Out-Grind" Sable in an impromptu dance-off competition between the ladies. Vachon then tried a sneak attack from behind with Howard Finkel's microphone only to drop it after receiving a Crescent Kick to the gut. Sable maintained the advantage with a series of Running Clotheslines and a Hair Pull Snap Mare, but was tripped by The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust from OOR when she attempted a Body Slam. Goldust struck again moments later when he pulled the top rope down causing Sable to take a bad fall out of the ring. She looked like she might beat Referee Chad Patton's ten count, but Goldust grabbed onto her foot to insure the Count Out. The time of the match was 4:17. After the bell, Luna continued to flail away on Sable with Goldust's help until Droz ran down to ringside with a chair to make the save.

Backstage interview with Kevin Kelly and The Rock.

Kevin Kelly: "We're here with the Rock to discuss the Nation of Domination's big tag team match against Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart and Vader later tonight. Vader has been searching for a partner to ....."

(The Rock puts his hand in front of Kelly's face)

The Rock: "Kevin Kelly, the Rock says shut your mouth and know your role ! Finally, the Rock has come back to Sacramento ! Owen Hart, the Rock will get to you in a minute, but first the Brahma Bull has got to talk about that 450 lb pile of stickin', steamin' Colorado-Grade-A monkey crap, Vader. The Rock says this, Vader - you can get all the help you want - those muscle-headed morons Hawk and Animal ...... Oh no Hart doesn't matter because the Nation is gonna kick your candy ass every damn night from Timbukto to Kalamazoo and check it into the Smackdown Hotel where it belongs ! Owen Hart, come Judgement Day, the Most Electrifying Man in Sports ..... the Great One ..... the People's Champion ....... is gonna walk down the People's Ramp ......... get in the People's Ring ..... give you the People's Elbow ......... shine up that Intercontinental Belt, turn it sideways and shove it right up your roody poo monkey ass ! If you smell ....... what The Rock is cookin'."

5. Road Dogg Jesse James of D-Generation X (w/ "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn) vs. Jeff Jarrett (w/ Tennessee Lee)

There's already a lot of bad blood between Jarrett and the New Age Outlaws and this match only added more fuel to the fire. Road Dogg interrupted Jarrett's backstage promo and then made a big entrance with his trademark catchphrases to add more bonus points to his total. Fans were treated to the Dogg's Shake Rattle & Roll (3 Left Jabs, A Funky Shuffle, and a Big Roundhouse Right) followed by the Shaky Knee Drop. Unable to get anything going in the ring, Jarrett took the battle to the floor but had his problems there as well. Road Dogg was able to reverse Jarrett's El Kabong Guitar Smash OOR and in so doing won the contest by Count Out at 5:26.

In a backstage segment, Road Dogg is celebrating his victory with Billy Gunn in the locker room. Southern Justice (Dennis Knight & Mark Canterbury) suddenly burst in and attack them. Gunn is run head-first into a wall by Canterbury while Road Dogg is laid out by Knight's Problem Solver (Inverted DDT). Tennessee Lee and Jeff Jarrett soon join the fray. The quartet stomp away at the Outlaws until Triple H and Shawn Michaels of D-Generation X burst in to run them off.

6. WWF Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart & Vader vs. The Rock & D'Lo Brown of the Nation of Domination

Although they have never teamed up before and have very different wrestling styles, Vader and Hart meshed surprisingly well together and even received a tag team bonus for working as a cohesive unit. Perhaps it was their mutual dislike of the Nation of Domination ? Whatever the reason, Hart & Vader took the fight to the Nation and seemed poised for victory when the Rock sustained a Vader Bomb (Slingshot Splash from the apron) followed by Owen's Sharpshooter. The Rock appeared to be on the verge of tapping out when all heck broke loose. The Nation of Domination's Faarooq and Mustafa raced into the ring along with L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal). An eight man free-for-all ensued with Referee Earl Hebner disqualifying both teams at 8:43.

Backstage segment. McMahon, Brisco and Patterson continue to work away on the pay-per-view card. The New Age Outlaws suddenly barge into Vince's office despite the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. McMahon is obviously peeved by the interruption. "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn and Road Dogg are demanding a match with Southern Justice at Judgement Day. McMahon looks around the room at his associates. Patterson and Brisco seem to like the idea. "Alright," Vince acquiesces, "But let's make it a little more interesting. The winners will get a title match against the Headbangers on RAW the week after Judgement Day." The Outlaws like the sound of that. "Done!" Road Dogg shouts. He and Billy Gunn turn to leave when Vince continues. "Just one more thing, boys ..." he adds. "What's that ? the Dogg asks. "Oh, you didn't know ? McMahon says both mimicking and mocking Road Dogg's famous catchphrase, "Hillbilly Jim will be the Guest Referee for that match." Billy Gunn and Road Dogg look at one another perplexed. They both simultaneously realize that Hillbilly Jim was Southern Justice's manager when Canterbury and Knight were known as the Godwinns. McMahon smiles as the Outlaws storm out of his office. Pleased with himself, Vince tells Patterson and Brisco, "Now all we need is one more match to wrap this up."

7. "HBK" Shawn Michaels of D-Generation X (w/ Hunter Hearst Helmsley) vs. "The Big Red Machine" Kane (w/ Paul Bearer)

With a quivering voice and ghostly make-up to boot, Paul Bearer cut a ghoulish promo for "The Big Red Machine" prior to the match to earn Kane 100 additional points, but that went for naught when Michaels attacked before the bell with a Double Axe Handle from the top rope to grab the early edge in the match. A Flying Forearm off the ropes was followed by HBK's patented kip up, but Michael's Diving Elbow from up top missed its mark moments later. The momentum abruptly swung in Kane's favor. The Big Red Machine unloaded with a barrage of fists and stomps in the corner. Giving up a great deal in both size and strength, HBK was hoisted up like a rag doll and tossed half way across the ring with a Military Press Slam. Kane then caught him with a Big Boot off the ropes followed by crushing Sidewalk Slam. Looking to lend a hand, Helmsley climbed up onto the apron to interfere but was sent to the floor with a Clothesline from Kane. Triple H did buy the resilient Michaels a few precious moments to recover, however. When the Big Red Machine turned his attention back to HBK, he was met with the Sweet Chin Music which put the big man down like a ton of bricks. Paul Bearer then entered the ring to break up Michaels' subsequent pin attempt and draw the DQ on Kane at 9:55. Still smarting from both his fall off the apron and a bruised ego, Helmsley tossed Paul Bearer out of the ring and went to town on the fallen Kane. He and Michaels were putting a double-team beat down on the Big Red Machine when the lights suddenly went out. JR speculated that the Undertaker was coming to his younger half-brother's aid, but when the lights came back on, we found WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin in the ring instead ! Austin spun the bewildered Michaels around and laid him out with the Stone Cold Stunner. Triple H was then planted into the mat by a huge Chokeslam from Kane. Helmsley and HBK skedaddled, slowly back peddling up the aisle and toward the back, all the while taking stock of the situation and sizing up their adversaries standing tall in the ring. Austin dispatched them with two middle fingers and a few choice expletives.

The Texas Rattlesnake then turned his attention to Kane while Referee Chad Patton assisted Paul Bearer to the back. With his hands on his hips, Austin eyed the Big Red Machine suspiciously and said "I don't know if I can trust you. Hell, I don't know if you can even understand English."

Kane just stood there silently staring at him..

"We got us a fight here with these two S.O.B.s," Austin persisted, "What do you say to that ? Are you up for it ?"

Kane slowly raised his arms and then dropped them quickly by his side. Flames blazed forth from the tops of all four ring posts as the fans cheered !

Meanwhile, Mr. McMahon, Brisco and Patterson are all smiles and patting themselves on the back as they exit Vince's office. McMahon shuts the light, closes the door behind them, and hands a folded piece of paper to Kevin Kelly with these instructions, "Take this to Ross and have him read it before we go off the air." Kelly immediately heads for ringside with the paper.

JR: "I've just been handed the lineup for Judgement Day and it's in Mr. McMahon's own hand writing, King !"

Lawler: "Then it must be official, JR ! Don't keep us hanging ! Read it ! Read It !"

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Stabler Arena, Bethlehem, PA

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Ring Announcer: Frank Coutinho
Referees: Jack Doan, Earl Hebner & Tim White

On the giant Titantron screen the fans watch "Stone Cold" Steve Austin burst through the doors at the Stabler Arena in a huff . He appears to be looking for someone or something. A member of the WWF's backstage crew walks by and the Texas Rattlesnake grabs him by the shirt. "Have you seen him ??" Austin asks. "Who?" the bewildered attendant replies. "Kane, that's who, you damn jackass !" Stone Cold shouts, "He's suppose to meet me here tonight, now where the hell is he ??" "I don't know !" the man answers, "I swear to you I don't know !" Austin points a threatening finger at him and says "If I find out that you're lying to me, son, Stone Cold will be back to kick your sorry ass !" He pushes the attendant out of the way and continues searching for the Big Red Machine.

1. Scorpio vs. "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal (w/ Flannel Shirt, Hard Hat & Classic British Cockney Accent ??)

The flashy Scorpio was well received by the PA crowd which added an additional 125 points to his total. Looking to earn some bonus points of his own, Regal attempted to cut a promo regarding his manly virtues prior to the opening bell. Scorpio was having none of it, however, and sent Regal over the top rope with a Drop Kick from behind. The Real Man's Man lost 50 points for taking a bad fall to the floor, but soon caught a big break when his opponent's 450 Splash from up top found nothing but canvas. The dazed Scorpio was just getting back to his feet when he was driven back into the mat with a DDT by Regal for the three count at 3:17.

Backstage Segment. Dan "The Beast" Severn is talking to Jim Cornette. The two seem to reach an understanding and shake hands to conclude their conversation. Severn is confronted by Michael Cole who asks him about the topic of their discussion. "You'll know soon enough," Severn responds.

In the meantime back at ringside -

Jim Ross: "Fans, I've just been informed that Dan "The Beast" Severn has hired a manager to represent him here in the WWF."

Jerry Lawler: "What ? That's big news, JR ! Who is it ?"

Jim Ross: "An official announcement is forthcoming, King. We'll find out more regarding this breaking development later in the program."

2. The Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff Hardy) w/ Michael Hayes vs. The New Blackjacks (Blackjack Bradshaw & Blackjack Windham)

Both teams demonstrated good mic skills in separate backstage interviews with Michael Cole before the match to increase their respective totals. The Blackjacks also received additional points for rolling on their Strength Modifier, but had trouble contending with their opponents' speed once the contest got under way. The Blackjacks grew noticably frustrated as the match wore on. As JR observed, "You can't hit what you can't catch !" After sustaining the Hardyz' Poetry in Motion (Assisted Elevated Corner Splash), Bradshaw threw the rulebook out the window and began choking out Jeff with his bullrope. Brother Matt quickly raced in with a chair shot from behind to level the big cowboy. Windham then entered the ring and began brawling with Matt. Referee Earl Hebner had enough and called for the bell at 7:47. Hardy Boyz manager Michael Hayes protested the decision, but Hebner's Double Disqualification stood.

Judgment Day Promo

Clips from the Undertaker's Casket Matches over the years are featured. Next, we're shown footage of the 'Taker receiving Gangrel's "Blood Bath" at the Arco Arena last week. Then we see a dark chamber illuminated only by candles. Edge and Christian of the Brood are in the room standing at opposite ends of a casket. They lift up the lid and Gangrel slowly sits up. Edge hands him a goblet of "blood". The Vampire Warrior drinks it down and savors the taste before speaking, "Undertaker, they call you 'The Master of the Casket Match'. You always had the advantage over your opponents because they feared being enclosed inside the casket..... but you've never faced anyone like me before. Do I look as though I'm afraid of being in here ? To you, a casket is just a macabre prop..... but to me, it's home." Gangrel smiles wickedly and lies back down inside. Edge and Christian close the lid as we fade to black.

Backstage Segment. Stone Cold continues his search for Kane and is growing more impatient by the minute. He's tossing chairs around and overturning tables, but his tag team partner for Judgment Day is nowhere to be found.

3. Prince Albert vs. "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry of the Nation of Domination (w/ Faarooq)

Before the match, the Nation of Domination's leader Faarooq held court in the ring and predicted big wins for both the Rock and D'Lo Brown at Judgment Day. He ominously noted that the victories would come "by any means necessary". He also said that the Nation intended to use Vader's buddies L.O.D. 2000 as stepping stones enroute to tag team gold. Hawk & Animal took exception to Faarooq's comments and came down to ringside to confront him. A shouting match ensued with Referee Tim White being pressed into service to keep the feuding factions apart. Once order was finally restored, the bout between Albert & Henry finally got under way. The two brutes put on quite a display of power with Prince Albert gradually gaining the upper hand after catching his opponent with a Two-Handed Overhead Chokebomb. Showing amazing agility for a big man, Albert connected with a Bicycle Kick to Henry's noggin, but missed on a subsequent Elbow Drop attempt. The Strongest Man in the World then mounted a comeback. Henry used a Running Powerslam to set Albert up for his Big Splash finisher and score the winning pinfall at 3:53.

Backstage Segment. Val Venis is watching video of "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock in preparation for their "I Quit" Match at Judgment Day. He sees one opponent after another tapping out to Shamrock's Ankle Lock. Terri Runnels notices Venis looking quite concerned and drops by to console him. She begins to massage his neck and shoulder muscles as the Big Valbowski continues to study the footage. "You're so tense, Val" she observes, "I think I can help you relax. Why don't we go someplace where we can be in private ?" Venis looks back at her and smiles. "I'm all about intimacy," he quips as Terri takes him by the hand and starts to lead him out the door. Just then the Big Valbowski's valet Ryan Shamrock suddenly enters. "What the hell is going on here ??" she demands. "I was just trying to help Val out," Terri answered. "Oh really ??" Ryan snaps, "Well, we don't need your kind of help, tramp, so get lost !" Runnels immediately gets into it with Shamrock. The two women are face-to-face screaming at one another. WWF Commissioner Sergeant Slaughter happens by, hears the commotion, and rushes over to help Venis keep the girls separated. The commish then catches and errant slap across the face from the unstrung Ryan. "If you two have a problem, then settle it in the ring !!" the Sarge orders.

4. Impromptu Ladies Match - Terri Runnels vs. Ryan Shamrock

It might be an exaggeration to suggest that this was an actual wrestling match what with both ladies wearing mini skirts and high heel shoes in the ring. The term "Cat Fight" might, perhaps, be a more appropriate description. There was hair pulling, loud stinging slaps, biting, scratching, clawing and a whole lot of cussing and trash talk mixed in for good measure. Val Venis pulled up a chair at ringside and genuinely seemed to enjoy watching the two blondes battle it out. At one point Ryan pulled off one of her stiletto shoes and tried to hit Terri in the head with it, but swung and missed. Runnels then caught her in a surprise cradle for the pin. The time of the "match" was 4:08.

In Ring Promo

The New Age Outlaws music hits as the crowd stands and cheers !

Road Dogg: "Oh, you didn't know ? Your ass better call somebody !! "

The Outlaws come down to the ring wearing South Park T-Shirts.

Road Dogg: "You damn right. It's me ! It's me ! That D-O-Double G !"

The Dogg climbs up on a turnbuckle and makes an "X" over his head with his arms while Billy Gunn does a couple of D-Generation X crotch chops.

Road Dogg: "Cut the damn music." He looks around the arena eliciting more cheers from the fans. "Bethlehem, welcome to the Dogg House ! You know, them New Age Oulaws like to kick that shiznit Doggy style !"

Jerry Lawler: "I still don't know what 'shiznit' means !"

(The crowd knows what's coming next and mouth the words right along with him)

Road Dogg: "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages ......... D-Generation X proudly brings to you its soon-to-be WWF Tag Team Champions of the Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorld......... The Road Dogg Jesse James ! The "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn ! The New Age Outlaws !!"

Billy Gunn: "Now, if you're not down with that, then we've got two words for ya ......."

Crowd: "Suck it !!"

Road Dogg: "Billy Gunn, how many times have the Outlaws kicked the Godwinns' asses ??"

Billy Gunn (Shaking his head & laughing): "Too many times to count !!"

Road Dogg: "It never got old, though, did it ? I mean, we beat them damn Arkansas pig farmers six ways from Sunday. Am I right ? 'Cause I sure as hell ain't wrong !"

(Billy Gunn nods emphatically.)

Road Dogg: "In fact, we done beat them so many times, they had to go get themselves a new name and a new look with their hair all slicked back now ..... fancy sunglasses and cheap suits.... They look like a couple of Hooterville Hitmen !"

Jerry Lawler: "Hooterville Hitmen ! Huh ??"

Road Dogg: "Well, you know what they say ..... You can clean up a pig farmer, put a ribbon on his tail and spray him down with perfume, but it's still a pig farmer in my damn book !"

Billy Gunn: "So you're called 'Southern Justice' now ? Well, the Dogg and I are a couple of good ol' southern boys ourselves and we got us our own brand of Southern Justice for your asses !"

The fans cheer as the Outlaws depart for Judgment Day with a few more crotch chops !

JR: "The Outlaws sound mighty confident, King."

Jerry Lawler: "They're over-confident if you ask me, JR ! That loudmouth Road Dogg forgot to tell these people that Hillbilly Jim is going to be the guest referee for the match."

JR: "That's true, King. Mr. McMahon did add that stipulation."

Jerry Lawler: "Yes, he did !"

JR: "Fans, we should note that Hillbilly Jim managed Southern Justice when they were known as the Godwinns and led them to the WWF Tag Team Titles."

Jerry Lawler: "And we all know that blood's thicker than water, JR !"

JR: "Mr. McMahon also said that the winners would get a title shot against the Headbangers on RAW."

Jerry Lawler: "There's a lot riding on this match at Judgment Day !."

JR: "What impact, if any, will Hillbilly Jim have on the outcome ? We'll have to wait and see !"

5. L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal w/ Sunny) vs. the WWF Tag Team Champion Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher w/ Boombox blaring Nine Inch Nails & Marilyn Manson tunes)

This was a non-title match. As was often the case during the WWF's Attitude Era, it was difficult to determine which team were the faces and which were the heels. Both the Headbangers and L.O.D. were cheered during their ring entrances and received fan support throughout the contest. The Headbangers showed some ruthlessness once the Nation of Domination's Faarooq and Mark Henry came down to ringside. Hawk immediately got into a heated confrontation with Faarooq who had climbed up onto the apron to stir up some trouble. Referee Earl Hebner was busy ordering the Nation to return to the back when Mosh used the distraction to clobber Hawk in the face with one of the tag team championship belts. Hebner turned around to find Mosh making the cover and counted the pin at 8:00.

Backstage Segment. Ryan Shamrock is looking a little frazzled and disheveled following her tussle with Terri Runnels. She tells Val Venis that she knows just the right person to help him prepare for his match at Judgment Day. The camera follows her around backstage. She nearly bumps into "Stone Cold" Steve Austin who is still searching everywhere for the missing Kane. Ryan seeks out and finds Dan "The Beast Severn". She's hoping to draw upon Severn's bitter rivalry with her brother Ken Shamrock when the two were adversaries in MMA. Ryan asks Severn to work with Val Venis and show him some submission holds to help him defeat Ken at Judgment Day . Severn states that he'd love nothing more than to hear Ken Shamrock say the words "I Quit" in front of a national audience like that, but tells Ryan that she'll have to take it up with his new manager first. He tells her that he's on his way to ringside now for the big announcement and invites her to come along with him.

We cut to the ring where Jim Cornette is expounding upon Dan "The Beast" Severn's numerous awards, titles held and career achievements. Cornette says that we're privileged to have Dan Severn with us now in the WWF. He said that there was no limit to what Severn would accomplish here, and that with the proper guidance, it was just a matter of time before he would be wearing championship gold around his waist. Cornette closed his accolades by stating, "And so, without further ado, it is my pleasure to present to you ................

Beauty and The Beast !"

There was a long pause with JR and Jerry Lawler speculating that the "Beauty" designation might be referring to Ryan Shamrock who had accompanied Severn to ringside. Those notions were quickly dispelled, however, once Terri Runnels came prancing down the aisle to join Severn. The two entered the ring together with Severn officially introduced Terri as his new manager.

Jerry Lawler: "What ?"

JR: "If you think that you're stunned, King, just take a look at Ryan Shamrock !"

Ryan's jaw hit the floor as she watched "Beauty & the Beast" basking in the spotlight.

Severn stated that Runnels, as "Marlena", had made Goldust a star in the WWF and led him to great success. The Beast said he was fully confident that she would do likewise for him. Terri served notice to all of the champions in the WWF and warned them that no one's title was safe. Severn then whispered something into Runnel's ear and pointed to Ryan Shamrock. Terri smirked and said, "I'm so happy that you're here to share this special moment with us, Ryan ! Dan said you have something important you wish to ask me ?"

Ryan bit her lip, stomped her foot and stormed off to the back.

6. X-Pac of D-Generation X (w/ Chyna) vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqueline)

This bout was a prelude to the Ladies Championship Match between Chyna and Jacqueline at Judgment Day. It didn't take long for the fireworks to start. The ladies got into it after Chyna interrupted Jacqueline's in-ring promo prior to the opening bell. X-Pac tried to serve as peacekeeper and pull them apart, but Marc Mero ambushed him from behind with a Double Axe Handle to gain the early advantage in the match. Marvelous Marc continued to control the action until X-Pax was able to flip out of a TKO (Fireman's Carry Cutter) attempt and level his opponent with a Roundhouse Kick to the mush. Mero was then whipped hard into the corner turnbuckle. A combination of karate kicks dropped him there and was immediately followed by the Bronco Buster. Jacqueline jumped up onto the apron and demanded that Referee Tim White send X-Pac to a neutral corner. White complied, thereby allowing the dazed Mero to get back to his feet. As he was doing so, Chyna snuck up from behind him with a Low Blow punch between the wickets. Marvelous Marc crumpled to the canvas and was pinned by X-Pac at 6:32.

7. Cactus Jack vs. Faarooq of the Nation of Domination (w/ "The World's Strongest Man" Mark Henry)

It seemed as though Cactus had signed on for a Handicap Match against the Nation of Domination in tonight's Main Event given all the cheap shots that Mark Henry snuck in behind Referee Jack Doan's back. A loud roar from the crowd alerted us that Cactus Jack's tag team partner Chainsaw Charlie had emerged from the back and was now racing down the aisle to be in his buddy's corner. Chainsaw and Henry quickly got into skirmish on the floor which drew Doan's attention away from the action in the ring. Faarooq took advantage of the distraction by bashing Cactus over the head with a folding chair. He then went for what appeared to be a certain pin, but the official was still preoccupied with the brawl between Charlie and Henry OOR. In the meantime, L.O.D. 2000 returned to ringside and prevented Faarooq from administering a second chair shot. Faarooq began jawing with Hawk and was rolled up from behind by Cactus with Doan turning around just in time to count the pin at 13:19.

In Ring Promo

The sound of smashing glass brought the fans to their feet and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin down to the ring. The Texas Rattlesnake climbed through the ropes with a mic in one hand and the WWF Championship Belt in the other.

Austin: If any of you people want to see Stone Cold and Kane whoop Triple H and Shawn Michaels' asses at Judgment Day, then give me a "Hell yeah !"

Crowd: "Hell yeah !!"

Austin: "That's what I thought, except that ol' Stone Cold might just have to take matters into his own hands and take care of business himself. Kane was suppose to be standing here in this ring with "Stone Cold" Steve Austin tonight, but I haven't seen hide or hair of his ugly carcass. I said last week that I didn't know if I could trust that S.O.B. and I still don't. Hell, maybe he'll show up at Judgment Day, and maybe he won't. Shawn Michaels, Triple H ....... Stone Cold is prepared to go two-on-one with you........ five-on-one with you..... fifteen-on-one ........... it doesn't damn matter 'cause I'll whoop all your asses come Judgment Day and that's the bottom line 'cause Stone Cold said so !"

The fans cheer ! Kane suddenly appears on the giant Titantron and they cheer even louder ! Austin turns around to look at the screen and sees that the Big Red Machine is standing outside the arena in the dark.

Austin: "So you finally decided to show up after all ! What I want to know, and what all these people here want to know, is can Stone Cold count on you to be there at Judgment Day ?"

The camera pulls back to reveal that Kane is actually standing outside the Rosemont Horizon and not the Stabler Arena. We follow the Big Red Machine's gaze as he looks up at the marquee which reads, "WWF Judgement Day - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & Kane vs. "HBK" Shawn Michaels & Triple H"

Stone Cold gives a "Hell, yeah !" and the fans go wild ! An attendant tosses the Rattlesnake a couple of cans of beer. He climbs up a turnbuckle, snaps them open and guzzles them down.

Jerry Lawler: "Mark my words, JR, Austin is making a big mistake taking on Kane as a partner !"

JR: "We both know that Kane's dangerous and unpredictable !"

Jerry Lawler: "Are you kidding me ? Even Kane doesn't know what Kane is going to do !"

Ross and Lawler then plug the "Judgement Day: In Your House" pay-per-view card from the Rosemont Horizon one final time -

WWF Judgment Day: In Your House Pay-Per-View Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Rosemont Horizon, Rosemont, IL

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Mike Chioda, Chad Patton, Mike Sparks, Jack Doan & Teddy Long

Opening Fireworks & Pyrotechnics

"No chance in hell !" theme music brought Vince McMahon to ringside along with his corporate stooges Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson. The WWF CEO basked in the boos and jeers that he received as his bungling associates held the ropes open allowing him to enter the ring. "Thank you for that somewhat "Stone Cold" reception, Rosemont," the Boss smirked no doubt alluding to his most hated nemesis in the company WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. "I'm reminded as to why The Rosemont Horizon wasn't my first choice as a venue for an event of this importance," he mused. "The truth be told, it wasn't even in my top ten. Simply stated, you people don't deserve to even host a hockey or basketball game, much less a WWF Pay-Per-View ..... (Loud boos !) nor are you worthy of the "Big" Announcement and "Big" Surprise that I have in store for you all later this evening. Be that as it may, here we are. There are a lot of titles on the line tonight, including the Light Heavyweight Championship in our opening contest. Speaking of which, I see a bright future in this business for the multi-talented Sho Funaki. He is a worthy challenger and would make a fine champion in my estimation should he be successful in defeating Taka Machinoku. Let's get to it !"

1. WWF Light Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match - Champion Taka Michinoku vs. Challenger Sho Funaki of Kaientai (w/ Yamaguchi-San)

Stipulations: There are no pinfalls, submissions, disqualifications or count outs. The match is won when one of the participants retrieves the Light Heavyweight Championship Belt which is suspended from the rafters above the ring.

It was unclear whether or not Mr. McMahon's comments were purposely intended to snub Taka Michinoku, but his sterling endorsement of Sho Funaki added 75 points to the challenger's total. Funaki also received 50 points for his Ladder Modifier as did the champion Michinoku. The match itself was an amazing highlight reel of dangerous stunts. At one point, Michinoku climbed to the top of the ladder and appeared as though he could have reached the belt to end the contest, but opted instead to leap off with a sommersault Leg Drop to the then-prone Funaki on the mat. In similar fashion, the challenger also had an excellent opportunity to claim the title, but chose instead to give Michinoku a Sunset Flip off the ladder while the champion was climbing up the rungs behind him. The match ultimately came down to both combatants slugging it out while precariously perched on opposite sides atop the ladder. Before either man could grab the belt, the Latino faction Los Boricuas stormed the ring and pushed the ladder over thereby sending both Michinoku and Funaki crashing hard to the mat. Yamaguchi-San tried to enter the ring to check on them but he was laid out by a Spin Kick from Savio Vega. Miguel Perez Jr., Jesus Castillo, Jose Estrada Jr. and Vega stomped away at the injured Funaki and Michinoku until Kaientai's Dick Togo and Men's Teioh raced in from the back with chairs to make the save and clear the ring of the heels. As it turned out, Los Boricuas' interference accomplished three tasks:

a. It spoiled the outcome of what was a terrific Ladder Match for the Light Heavyweight Championship, with the bout officially being declared a "No Contest" by Referee Mike Chioda at 10:56.

b. It turned Kaientai, a previous heel stable, babyface, and

c. It made Kaientai even stronger with Taka Michinoku joining the group. Prior to Judgment Day, Michinoku wanted nothing to do with the stable, but now united in the common purpose of taking down Los Boricuas, the WWF's Light Heavyweight Champion has banded together with them.

2. Vader vs. D'Lo Brown of the Nation of Domination

Vader has been embroiled in a war with the Nation of Domination over the past several weeks. Over that period of time, L.O.D. 2000 and WWF Intercontinental Champion Owen Hart have been swept up into the feud. The conflict has come full circle now with this bout at Judgment Day, for it was Brown who started it all by interferring in a match and enabling The Rock to defeat Vader on an episode of RAW. Ever since that fateful night, the 450 lb Vader has found himself continually coming up on the short end of the stick in his battles with the Nation, so it was a good omen when he rolled on his Size Modifier and bolstered his score by 250 points. It was also in his favor to thwart a sneak attack by D'Lo before the opening bell and tack on another 100 points. Furthermore, the big man from the Rocky Mountains of Colorado was able to yank off Brown's controversial chest protector just before delivering his devastating Vader Bomb (Corner Slingshot Splash) to put D'Lo away for the three count at 4:39. The look of vindication on Vader's face after having his hand raised in victory by Referee Chad Patton was priceless.

Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office

There is a corporate meeting in progress between Mr. McMahon, his cronies Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco, and his personal bodyguard the Big Boss Man. Looking to get back into McMahon's good graces and atone for his security lapse that led to the WWF's CEO being locked away in a janitor's closet in Anaheim, the Boss Man tried to reassure McMahon that he was "on top of things" this evening and that there was nothing to be concerned about. "I'm not so sure," McMahon replied, "And that's why I've taken extra measures to ensure my safety. You might call it a 'Big' insurance policy." Pat Patterson smiled and nodded. "No, Boss Man, I want you to concentrate on defending the Hardcore Title tonight," McMahon continued. "Mr. Mack-man has also taken out a 'Big' insurance policy on that, too !" Brisco chimed in. He and Patterson chuckled while Mr. McMahon leaned back in his chair and smiled.

3. Ladies Championship Match - Champion "9th Wonder of the World" Chyna of D-Generation X (w/ X-Pac) vs. Challenger Jacqueline (w/ "Marvelous" Marc Mero)

Both women cut good promos before the contest to add to their totals. Chyna and Jacqueline also rolled on their Speed Modifiers which helped the challenger's cause, but hurt the defending champion's. By far the more polished of the two wrestlers in technical proficiency, Jacqueline dictated the pace of the action and pressured the champ into several pinning predicaments. Sensing that she might need a little extra help in finishing off the "9th Wonder of the World", Marvelous Marc slid a folding chair into the ring for Jacqueline to use and proceeded to divert Referee Mike Sparks' attention. Unfortunately for the challenger, Chyna spotted the chair lying in the ring first and gave Jacqueline a DDT onto it. Sparks turned around to find the champion making the cover on her KO'd oppponent and counted the pin at 6:19. Chyna successfully retains the WWF Ladies Championship.

4. Triple Threat Hardcore Title Match - Champion Big Boss Man in black S.W.A.T. team uniform vs. Challenger Mankind vs. Challenger Al Snow

There's no telling what may be going through the mind of Al Snow at any given moment. The same can be said of Mankind, but for whatever reason, Al chose to forsake his usual J.O.B. Squad attire and dress as "Shinobi", the ninja gimmick persona that he employed during the mid 90's. As it turned out, Snow/Shinobi was nearly eliminated from the match before it even began. Al was apparently jumped backstage by an unknown assailant who was waiting in the wings for him and sustained 200 points worth of damage. Snow was hurting, but emerged in time for his match introduction. The assault (and subsequent loss of points) would severely hurt his chances of winning the contest, however. Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler speculated as to who would commit such a heinous act and for what purpose. While they pondered the riddle, the Big Boss Man, who had cut an outstanding promo in the locker room just moments previous, came down to the ring next. It should be noted that Triple Threat and Fatal Four Way matches may sometimes lend themselves to some interesting alliances being formed during the spur of the moment. Such was the case this evening when the Boss Man and Snow teamed up to put a clubberin' on Mankind as he was entering the ring for his introduction. Once Mankind was sufficiently incapacitated from the attack, the champ quickly turned on Al and laid him out with a running Yakuza Kick to the jaw. The former prison guard did not use his trademark nightstick during his title defense, but found many other objects to wield over the course of the contest including a 2 x 4, a trash can lid, a traffic cone and his own Hardcore Championship Belt. Ironically enough, his weapon-of-choice to win the match would turn out to be a Kendo Stick that "Shinobi" brought to the ring. The Boss Man cracked Mankind over the noggin with a leaping smash from the top rope to score the winning pinfall at 11:58. The Big Boss Man successfully retains the WWF Hardcore Championship.

Backstage Segment

Unable to swallow her pride and ask Terri Runnels for Dan "The Beast" Severn's help in teaching Val Venis some submission holds for his "I Quit" match against her brother later in the program, Ryan Shamrock decided to take matters into her own hands. She assures Val that she has a Plan B. Bob Backlund then enters the room wearing his familiar grey suit and red bow tie. Fancying himself as a "motivational speaker" now, Backlund goes off on a twenty minute pep talk to try and boost Val's confidence. We can tell by his unorthodox presentation that Bob doesn't quite have all his paddles in the water. He abruptly finishes, pats Venis on the back, and asks for Ryan to pay him. "Are you kidding me ?" she says incredulously, "I'm not paying you for a stupid speech ! You were suppose to teach Val your Crossface Chickenwing submission hold !" They argue over the terms of their arrangement with Backlund storming out after not being compensated for his services.

5. European Title Match - Champion The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust (w/ Luna Vachon) vs. Challenger Droz (w/ Sable)

Droz, a former defensive lineman with the NFL's Denver Broncos, made a huge entrance thanks in large part to having Sable come down the aisle with him dressed up like a Broncos' cheerleader. The stunt earned him an additional 125 points to work with. Goldust then graced the crowd with his customary Hollywood "Shattered Dreams Production" arrival to the ring. Theatrics aside, Goldust is an accomplished wrestler who defeated both Val Venis and Jeff Jarrett during a tournament enroute to becoming the European Champion. He had his problems tonight, however, and needed (and received) some help from Luna Vachon along the way. Droz flattened the champ with a Spear from a three-point football stance and then began to climb up to the top rope to attempt a high risk maneuver, but his progress was impeded by Luna who grabbed onto his foot. Sable then raced over and leveled Vachon with a Clothesline OOR, however the damage was done. Luna's interference bought Goldust some precious time and enabled him to get back to his feet and cut Droz off at the pass. The European Champ then delivered a huge Superplex off the top to put his challenger's shoulders to the mat for the victory at 6:36. Goldust successfully retains the WWF European Championship.

6. The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg Jesse James & "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn of D-Generation X) vs. Southern Justice (Mark Canterbury & Dennis Knight) w/ Tennessee Lee. Mr. McMahon appointed Hillbilly Jim as the Special Guest Referee for this match. McMahon also stated that the winners would receive a title match against the WWF Tag Team Champion Headbangers on RAW.

Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler refreshed our memories and gave the audience a WWF history lesson in Hillbilly Jim's affiliation with Canterbury and Knight. Ross pointed out that Jim had managed Knight and Canterbury to the tag team titles in 1996 when they were known as Phineas and Henry Godwinn respectively. Perhaps looking to remind the Special Guest Referee of their celebrated past together (and influence his officiating leeway), Southern Justice brought the Godwinns' old slop bucket to ringside with them "for good luck". On the opposite side of the ring, the New Age Outlaws got a big pop from the crowd for their typical flamboyant entrance. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn then partook in a quick game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors" in their corner to determine who would start the match for their team with the "Bad Ass" taking the honors. The Outlaws dominated this contest, but Tennessee Lee's shrewd managing kept Southern Justice in it. Lee easily manipulated Hillbilly Jim out of position on several occasions allowing Canterbury and Knight to cheat at will behind the inexperienced Guest Referee's back. Jerry Lawler wondered aloud if Jim was showing favoritism to Knight and Canterbury by intentionally turning a blind eye to Southern Justice's rule breaking. The King's speculation may have been put to rest for good, though, when Road Dogg pinned Canterbury at 12:44 after clobbering him with the Godwinns' slop bucket. Did Jim's personal inclinations affect his officiating during the match ? Only he knows for sure, but he may have tipped his hand in a post-match interview with Michael Cole at ringside. Jim revealed in the discussion that he had been "fired" by Canterbury and Knight immediately after the Godwinns lost the tag team titles in 1996. The Arkansas pig farmers then turned heel and eventually took on the name "Southern Justice" once they hired Tennessee Lee as their manager. Be that as it may, The New Age Outlaws are now the number one contenders to the WWF Tag Team Championship and will face the Headbangers for the titles on the next episode of RAW.

In Ring Segment

The lights go out as the Undertaker makes his way down the aisle and enters the ring. He begins to cut a promo regarding his upcoming Casket Match with Gangrel. The Deadman claims that the darkness in the arena is nothing compared to the darkness that is inside his soul. Before he can continue, though, Mr. McMahon's "No chance in hell" theme music suddenly plays. The WWF CEO makes his way back down the ramp and enters the ring with Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson. The 'Taker gives him an icy stare. "I'm sorry to interrupt you, Undertaker," McMahon explains, "But I have a 'Big' announcement to make." McMahon then introduces his "Insurance Policy" to the fans - "The Big Show" Paul Wight ! Wight then comes down the aisle and enters the ring. He stands behind Mr. McMahon with his arms folded as the boss continues. "If anyone has a problem with me .... including you, Undertaker, then take it up with the Big Show." The Deadman approaches McMahon but the Big Show steps in between them. There is a tense stare down between Wight and the Deadman. Mr. McMahon breaks the tension by telling the Undertaker to "save his energy for the Casket Match". He then departs with his cronies. The Big Show is the last to leave, giving one final glance over his shoulder at the Undertaker standing in the ring, before following McMahon to the back.

7. Casket Match - "The Phenom" Undertaker vs. Gangrel

Stipulations: There is a casket at ringside. There are no pinfalls, submissions, disqualifications or count outs. The match can only be won by putting your opponent inside the casket and closing the lid.

Though known for being "The King of the Casket Match", the Undertaker's attention was clearly divided this evening thanks in "large" part to the tense confrontation that he shared with the Big Show moments ago. The Deadman stood with his hands on his hips and a preoccupied look upon his face as he waited for Gangrel to make his entrance. Fire appeared at the top of the ramp and the Brood's ghoulish music played, but the Vampire Warrior was nowhere to be seen. Suddenly, and much to the astonishment of both Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, the lid of the casket that was positioned at ringside began to slowly lift. Gangrel emerged from inside, snuck into the ring and attacked the Undertaker from behind. Perhaps the Vampire Warrior was playing some mind games with his foe ? Whatever his thinking, the strategy succeeded in giving Gangrel the early advantage in the match. The Vampire Warrior continued to dish out the punishment. A Delayed Verticle Suplex was immediately followed by a Corkscrew Elbow Drop, but the 'Taker thwarted his opponent's attempt to roll him inside the coffin. His focus now properly restored to the task at hand, The Deadman fought back with some vicious corner uppercuts, the Snake Eyes face-first drop onto the turnbuckle padding and a staggering Head Butt. The Undertaker then leveled his dazed opponent with a Leaping Clothesline off the ropes followed by a crushing Side Slam to the mat. The Deadman seemed poised to deliver his signature Tombstone Pilediver next when the Big Show came back down the ramp, entered the ring behind the 'Taker's back and surpised the Deadman with a huge Chokeslam. Gangrel then added his Impaler DDT for good measure before rolling the Undertaker inside the casket and slamming the lid shut for the victory at 11:02.

8. "I Quit" Match - "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock vs. Val Venis (w/ Ryan Shamrock)

Stipulations: There are no pinfalls, disqualifications or count outs. The match is won by making your opponent say "I Quit" into a microphone.

Both men earned bonus points for good interviews with Michael Cole backstage before the contest. Shamrock further increased his total with a fortuitous roll on his Speed Modifier. Using his MMA background and experience quite effectively to his advantage, "The World's Most Dangerous Man" carried the battle to his opponent. Shamrock applied several grueling submission holds during the bout, but Venis refused to "Quit" whenever Referee Mike Sparks held the microphone to his face. To his credit, Val was able to avoid being caught in Shamrock's dreaded Ankle Lock finisher, however he was ultimately done in by a hold that completely caught him off guard. Ironically enough, Shamrock applied Bob Backlund's Crosssface Chickenwing on him ! With a look of both surprise and horror on his anguished face, Venis battled the excruciating pain momentarily, but could not escape the hold and was forced to utter the infamous "I Quit" into Sparks' microphone at 11:17.

9. Intercontinental Championship Match - Champion Owen Hart vs. Challenger The Rock of the Nation of Domination

Never at a loss for words, the Brahma Bull cut a great backstage promo with Michael Cole before the match in which he spelled out the word "Jabroni" as "O-w-e-n-H-a-r-t" for the masses. The Rock refused to acknowledge his opponent's Sharpshooter finisher by name and called Hart's signature moves "the Dispsy-Doodle" and the "Sufferin' Succotash" instead. The bravado earned him 50 extra points to work with before heading to the ring. The Challenger also added an additional 25 points for rolling on his Savvy Modifier. When The Rock set his sights on winning Owen Hart's Intercontinental Title, he did so by the Nation of Domination's credo "By any means necessary". The motto justified an ambush before the opening bell which cost Owen 100 points in damage and gave The Rock the early jump in the match. The Nation's adage might also account for D'Lo Brown's actions late in the bout. D' Lo ran down to ringside and slipped something into the Brahma Bull's hand while The Rock was slumped in the corner. That "something" quickly made its way inside one of The Rock's knee pads in time to catch Hart flush on the chin with it during a corner charge. The Challenger then secured the tainted pinfall with both feet on the ropes for additional leverage to win the title. Your winner with the loaded knee pad at 12:46 and neeeeeewwwwwww (as only Howard Finkel can enunciate properly) WWF Intercontinental Champion - The Rock !

10. WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & "The Big Red Machine" Kane vs. D-Generation X ("HBK" Shawn Michaels & Hunter Hearst Helmsley) w/ "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna

"Are You Ready ? Break it down !" announced the arrival of D-Generation X for the first introduction with big time pyrotechnics and a whole lot of crotch chops. The sound of smashing glass brought Stone Cold down to the ring next with Austin receiving a huge pop from the crowd. The time for Kane's entrance had come. Ring Announcer Howard Finkel introduced him, but the fickle Big Red Machine was a no-show . Austin just stood there shaking his head. A long, awkward pause followed until it became obvious to everyone that Kane wasn't coming.

Jerry Lawler: "I won't say that I told you so, JR, but I told you so ! Kane can't be trusted !"

Jim Ross: "I saw Kane backstage earlier tonight, King ! He's got to be here !"

Jerry Lawler: "Well, he ain't here now !"

Jim Ross: "He's double-crossed the Rattlesnake ! Damn you, Kane !"

Just then "No chance in hell" began playing with Mr. McMahon strolling down to ringside with Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco in tow.

Mr. McMahon: (Looking around in astonishment) "Well now, it looks as though your partner has deserted you, Champ."

Shawn Michaels and Triple H are having a good time with this. Michaels is chewing gum and leaning up against Helmsley with a smart-ass grin on his face.

Mr. McMahon: (With a wicked smile) "And now, I suppose, is as good a time as any for my 'Big' Surprise."

Jerry Lawler: "What ?? So the 'Big Announcement' and the 'Big Surprise' are two different things then ??"

Jim Ross: "Apparently so, King. There's just no telling with Mr. McMahon."

Suddenly, backstage footage from earlier appears on the giant Titantron screen. We see the Big Show doing a number on Al Snow before the Triple Threat Hardcore Title Match. Then we watch the Big Boss Man and the Big Show put a double-team beat down on Kane in the locker room before the Tag Team Main Event.

Mr. McMahon: (Very smug and proud of himself) "You have a couple of choices here, Austin. You can either forfeit the match to D-Generation X, or wrestle them in a Handicap Match."

Without hesitation Austin tells the timekeeper to "Ring the damn bell !" as the fans cheer.

Mr. McMahon: "Alright, have it your way then you bald S.O.B. ! A Handicap Match it is ! But you know what, Austin ? I'm buying a front row seat at my own damn pay-per-view because I want to watch you get your ass kicked by DX !" (McMahon says this with real venom and hatred for Austin. He practically spits the words out.) The boss then takes a hundred dollar bill out of his pocket and stuffs it in a ring attendant's hand. "Put that in the box office till and get me a damn chair !"

The attendant sets up a folding chair for Mr. McMahon on the floor beside the announcer's table and the boss takes a seat.

Referee Teddy Long informs the participants that D-Generation X must wrestle under tag teams rules. Only one man is allowed in the ring at a time with both partners tagging in and out. Riding a rush of adrenaline (and perhaps taking advantage of DX's initial over-confidence), Stone Cold dominated the early going and forced HBK and Triple H into careless errors. Ever the ring general, Michaels slowed down the tempo of the match which allowed DX's advantage to slowly and patiently materialize. Helmsley and Michaels began to wear down the Rattlesnake. Quick tags enabled DX to stay out of trouble and keep a fresh man in the ring at all times. Several near pinfalls on Austin had Mr. McMahon jumping out of his chair eager for a DX victory. At one point, Stone Cold sustained Helmsley's Pedigree finisher and barely mustered the wherewithal to get a foot on the bottom rope. Mr. McMahon quickly pushed the foot off, but Referee Teddy Long had seen it and stopped the pin count. McMahon was furious and jumped into the ring to argue with the official. A commotion from the crowd alerted us that something was a foot. The camera quickly cut to Kane hobbling down the ramp toward ringside ! HBK, Helmsley and Mr. McMahon all stood frozen in shock. Austin then spun Triple H around and nailed him with the Stone Cold Stunner. Teddy Long was rushing over to count the pin for the Rattlesnake when Michaels threw the ref over the top rope and out of the ring to draw the DQ at 12:13. Degeneration-X quickly high-tailed it out of there leaving Mr. McMahon alone in the ring to fend for himself. "I'll get you for this, Michaels !" the boss snarled. McMahon then turned around to find himself cornered by Kane and Austin. He dropped to his knees and begged for mercy as they closed in on him. The Corporate Cavalry then came to the rescue ! The Big Boss Man and the Big Show rushed the ring and brawled with Kane and Stone Cold allowing Mr. McMahon to skedaddle. Amidst all the chaos, no one seemed to notice the Undertaker rolling the casket back down to ringside. The 'Taker entered the ring, grabbed the Big Show by the throat and planted him into the mat with a Chokeslam to return the favor from earlier in the program. In the meantime, Austin and Kane battled the Boss Man up the ramp and to the back. With the crowd on its feet and cheering him on, the Deadman planted the Big Show with a Tombstone Piledriver. He then rolled him into the casket and slammed the lid shut before returning back up the aisle himself. The camera panned back to the coffin with Big Show's fist punching through the lid over and over again. The coffin fell apart like match sticks from the mighty blows. Big Show then got up and stormed to the back as we fade to black with the WWF logo.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Compaq Center, Houston, TX

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviews: Michael Cole
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Earl Hebner, Mike Sparks & Chad Patton

Backstage Segment - Compaq Center Parking Garage

We watch Mr. McMahon arrive at the Compaq Center in his Lincoln Town Car on the jumbo Titantron. He pulls up to his "Reserved Parking" space only to find "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's pickup truck already parked there. (The crowd cheers !) McMahon is furious and beeps the horn constantly. He realizes no one is coming to help him and drives on looking for another spot. His car goes through level after level, climber higher and higher in the parking garage. There are simply no parking spaces to be had. McMahon ends up at the highest level on the roof of the garage and finally finds an open space. After parking his car, he walks over to the elevator only to find it "Out of Order". He begins descending the stairs, all the while muttering under his breath with words being beeped out.

1. Kaientai (WWF Light Heavyeight Champion Taka Michinoku & Sho Funaki) w/ Yamaguchi-San vs. Los Boricuas (Miguel Perez Jr. & Jose Estrada Jr.) w/ Savio Vega & Flag of Puerto Rico

Los Boricuas drew some serious heat (and bonus points) when they were soundly boo'd by the capacity crowd at the Compaq Center during their ring entrance. The fans' animosity was no doubt fueled by Los Boricuas' interference during the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match between Michinoku and Funaki at the Judgment Day pay-per-view in which the latino faction attacked both participants. The assault by Los Boricuas led to Taka Michinoku joining the Kaientai stable. Michinoku & Funaki were able to achieve some vindication this evening. With Referee Earl Hebner spilled to the canvas, Savio Vega gave Miguel Perez a chair to use. The strategy backfired in a big way, though, when a charging Perez had the chair driven into his own face courtesy of a Michinoku Drop Kick. Hebner shook out the cobwebs to find Taka making the cover on the KO'd Perez and counted the 1-2-3 at 9:24.

Backstage Segment - Michael Cole Interviews "Beauty & the Beast" (aka Terri Runnels & Dan Severn) about the WWF Judgment Day Pay-Per View

Terri said that Judgment Day would have been better had Dan "The Beast" Severn been included on the card. She guaranteed that under her management, Severn would not only be in the next pay-per-view, but that he would also win his first championship belt. Cole asked Runnels if there was a specific title that she was interested in, but before she could answer, the WWF's European Champion The Artist Formerly Known As Goldust interrupted the discussion. "What good are your guarantees, Terri ??" he scoffed. Goldust then told Severn to "Watch your back and your money when dealing with her !" and then added, "There's a reason why I fired her !" before walking off the interview set. (Runnels, as Marlena, had previously managed Goldust. They were quite successful together, but had a falling out followed by a bitter separation.) Terri told Severn to "just ignore him", but we could seed by the expression on the Beast's face that the seed of doubt had been planted.

2. Dan "The Beast" Severn (w/ "Beauty" Terri Runnels) vs. Tiger Ali Singh (w/ Manservant Babu)

Before the match, Terri addressed the crowd to "get a few things off her chest and set the record straight" regarding her break up with Goldust. She stated that she had never been fired by him, but had quit on her own volition because he was just "too weird for words". She further stated that he "got what he deserved" by hiring "that skank" Luna Vachon to be his valet. Terri was just beginning to expound on how Dan Severn was going to defeat Goldust for the European Title when Tiger Ali Singh's music began to play. The rich playboy from India then made his way down to the ring with his manservant Babu. The vile Singh loves to humiliate Americans for money. He eyed Terri Runnels lecherously in the ring and said "How much do you charge ?" "Excuse me ??" the flabbergaatted blonde responded increduously. "How much ?" he persisted. Babu handed his master a wad of cash. "How much do you charge to show my servant a good time after the show tonight ?" Singh fanned out the bills for Terri. "What is your price ?" Runnels was incensed and slapped Singh across the face as the crowd roared in approval. The stinging blow sent the playboy's money scattered all over the mat. Singh was rubbing his cheek when he felt a tap on his shoulder from behind. He turned to find Dan Severn, who immediately planted him into the canvas with a Belly to Belly Suplex to officially begin their bout. This was strictly a one-sided contest. Severn transitioned from one grueling hold to another to keep his opponent on the defensive before finishing off the over-matched Singh with a Kesa Gatame (Rolling Headlock and Arm Trap Pin) at 4:30.

Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office

Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco are making inquiries to determine Mr. McMahon's whereabouts. They're obviously concerned that the boss hasn't shown up at RAW yet. McMahon suddenly bursts through the door gasping for breath. Brisco and Patterson rush over to check on him and find out what happened. "That damn bald S.O.B. Austin parked in my spot again !" McMahon shouts, "Get a tow truck down here right now and have that heap hauled away ! Make that Priority No. 1 !" Patterson immediately gets right on it and starts making phone calls.

3. Ivory vs. Tori of D-Generation X (w/ X-Pac)

Tori made a favorable impression upon Hunter Hearst Helmsley to gain admission into the DX stable. The former "Dudette" helped Triple H defeat Dude Love during a match in Columbus, OH. Ever since then, Tori has been training to become a professional wrestler. WWF newcomer Ivory took her inexperienced foe to school this evening. She dominated from the onset with Tori unable to generate any offense whatsoever. X-Pac tried to lend a hand and climbed up onto the apron to interfere, but Tori was sent crashing into him. The force of the collision knocked X-Pac to the floor and sent Tori staggering backward into a roll up to give Ivory the victory at 4:35.

Backstage Segment

The Jackyl (Don Callis) is on a pay phone. He appears to be "on hold" and keeps nervously peeking at his watch. When he sees the cameraman approaching with Michael Cole, he yells for Kurrgan the Interrogator to "keep them back !" Kurrgan is clearing a space for some privacy when we hear the Jackyl say, "Hey man, where you've been ?? I've been on hold for like twenty minutes now ! ....... I know we're an hour behind, but you said to call at 9:00 ..... Well, it's 9:00 here ...... Are we still on for tonight or what ??" We're too far away now to hear any more of the conversation, but knowing the nature of the Jackyl, there is something nefarious afoot. Jim Ross refers to him as "the David Koresh of the WWF" and it's not just because he bears a striking resemblance to the long-haired leader of the Branch Davidians in Waco, TX. The Jackyl may be the spiritual leader of the Truth Commission (Kurrgan, Recon & Sniper), but he has much higher (and sinister) aspirations. The Jackyl would love nothing more than to oust Vince McMahon from power and take over control of the WWF.

4. Steel Cage Match. Vader vs. "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry of the Nation of Domination

The match is won be either climbing out of the cage or exiting through the door.

Given the massive bulk of both competitors (Vader 450 lbs and Henry 360 lbs), Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler commented that neither of these big brutes were likely to win by climbing out of the cage . The Nation of Domination must have thought so as well, for they stationed a rather funky looking Kama Mustafa outside the cage door to help insure a Mark Henry victory. Rather than donning his traditional Nation attire, Mustafa was decked out in some fancy, colorful threads, including a fedora hat with a bright orange plume and a cane with a gold handle. To complete his new look, Mustafa sported some flashy bling and puffed away on a large cigar as he watched the action intently. Vader looked to exit the cage after delivering a devastating Splash onto his adversary, but had the door slammed into his face by Mustafa. Dazed from the blow, Vader stumbled right into a ring-shaking Running Powerslam by Henry who was then able to escape through the door to win the contest at 12:11. In a post-match interview with the Nation, Mustafa informed Michael Cole that he now wished to be referred to as "The Godfather".

5. Test vs. The Big Show (w/ Mr. McMahon)

Signed to provide additional security for Mr. McMahon, the Big Show made a memorable WWF inception at Judgment Day. Not only did he attack Al Snow to assist the Big Bossman in defending his Hardcore Championship, he also joined the Bossman in dishing out a double-team beat down on Kane prior to the Main Event. Perhaps his biggest moment came at the conclusion of the program, however, when he sustained a Tombstone Piledriver from the Undertaker and was stuffed inside a coffin as payback for helping Gangrel defeat the Deadman in a Casket Match. This evening marked the Big Show's wrestling debut with Test drawing the short straw as his opponent. Too new to have his own entrance music and video, the Big Show came out to Mr. McMahon's "No chance in hell" track with the boss himself escorting the newest member of his Corporation to the ring. Just as he did at Judgment Day, McMahon pulled up a chair at ringside to watch the action firsthand. Test's eyes were as big as saucers when he heard the WWF CEO shouting "Hurt him, Big Show ! I don't care if you win or not ! Make a statement tonight !" Perhaps McMahon was imagining "Stone Cold" Steve Austin or "HBK" Shawn Michaels to be the Big Show's opponent this evening ? More likely, he was probably hoping that they were watching. The Big Show did not disappoint. More intent on inflicting pain rather than in winning per se, the Big Show kept yanking Test up on two-counts when it was obvious to everyone that he could have had a pin. Test was eventually tossed OOR and then Chokeslammed through the Spanish announcers' table. As it turned out, the Big show won after all - via Count Out at 6:48. Mr. McMahon seemed pleased as he watched Test being assisted to the back. Pat Patterson then came to ringside to inform him that the tow truck has finally arrived. McMahon looked even happier and rushed out to the parking garage.

Backstage Segment - Parking Garage

We see McMahon hurry over to the tow truck. He tells the driver to haul Austin's pickup truck away. The driver takes a swig of beer and asks him where he wants the truck taken to. McMahon says, "You can dump it in the Gulf of Mexico for all I care ! Just get it out out of my damn parking space !" The tow truck driver goes back to drinking his beer. The boss is losing patience and snarls, "Get off your lazy butt and get to work or I'll see to it that you're fired !! I'm Vince McMahon, damn it !" The driver reluctantly gets out to hook up the truck. "It's about time !" McMahon snorts. The tow truck driver suddenly gives him a kick to the gut followed by a Stone Cold Stunner. (The crowd cheers !) He pulls off his wig and glasses disguise to reveal that he's "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, hops back in the tow truck and drives away.

6. WWF Tag Team Championship Match. Champion Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher) w/ Boombox blaring Marilyn Manson tunes vs. Challengers The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg Jesse James & "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn) of D-Generation X w/ Chyna

The Oulaws earned this title match by defeating Southern Justice at Judgment Day. Road Dogg & Billy Gunn made their typical big entrance to earn additional points, but the Headbangers matched them in that regard to offset the advantage. This brings us to Chyna. "The Ninth Wonder of the World" is usually very active in matches involving fellow DX members and tonight was no exception. The Outlaws were the beneficiaries of several cheap shots from Chyna which took a toll on the Headbangers' points total. The Challengers indeed seemed poised to win the titles, but fate conspired against them in an unusual way. ECW's Buh Buh Ray & D-Von Dudley came out of the crowd, rushed the ring, and laid out Billy Gunn with the 3D (Dudley Death Drop, i.e. D-Von Flapjack/Buh Buh Cutter Combination). No one knew what to make of it. Thrasher suddenly rushed over to make the cover on Gunn but Referee Chad Patton called for the bell and disqualified the Headbangers for the outside interference instead at 7:52. Mosh and Thrasher protested and claimed they had nothing to do with the Dudley's actions, but Patton's decision stood. The New Age Outlaws win the match, but the Headbangers retain the WWF Tag Team Titles. In the meantime. the Dudley Boyz made a hasty exit back up the aisle. A cameraman followed them through the lobby and out of the arena. A car with Joey Styles at the wheel and Bill Alfonso beside him in the front seat then pulled up. The Dudleys jumped in the back with the vehicle speeding off into the Houston night. The crowd continued to buzz over the Dudley's unexpected appearance. Some fans even chanted "ECW ! ECW !"

7. Four Corners Match. Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X (w/ Chyna) vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqueline) vs. Jeff Jarrett (w/ Tennessee Lee) vs. The Godfather of the Nation of Domination (w/ Mark Henry)

Not to be confused with a Fatal Four Way Match, the Four Corners Match is an elimination contest. There are two participants in the ring at a time, with the remaining two on the outside. The two on the outside cannot enter until they are tagged in. Competitors can be eliminated by pinfall, submission, disqualification or count out. The match continues until there is only one participant remaining who shall be declared the winner.

Helmsley, Mero and the Godfather all cut good promos before the match to bolster their totals. Jarrett did not get any mic time, however he did roll on his Cheating Modifier to boost his points score. The first elimination came at the expense of Triple H. Helmsley was rolled up from behind for the three count by Marc Mero after becoming embroiled in a shouting match with the Rock who had joined JR and Lawler at the broadcast table to provide guest commentary for the contest. Mero struck again in the second elimination with the victim this time being the Godfather. Outside interference worked once more in the Marvelous One's favor and was a key factor in the result. Looking for a little revenge from his Steel Cage Match loss earlier in the program, Vader returned to ringside and slipped the Godfather's cane into the ring for Mero to use while Referee Earl Hebner was sending Jeff Jarrett back to a neutral corner. Marvelous Marc clobbered the Godfather with his own cane and then scored the pin when Hebner turned around to find Mero making the cover. The Rock threw off his head set and immediately voiced his protest to the official. Oblivious to Vader's mischief, Hebner had no choice but to let the pin stand. Mero's luck finally ran out in the final elimination, however. The Marvelous One was counted out after Tennessee Lee pulled the top rope down causing Mero to take a bad fall to the floor. Your winner at 18:16 - Jeff Jarrett.

Backstage Segment

The Rock is consoling the Godfather over the outcome of the Four Corners Match when they are suddenly joined by a half dozen ladies. The Godfather introduces them as his "hos". The girls immediately begin fawning over the Brahma Bull. The Rock says that he "likes what he sees" and then adds, "Who wants to spend a night on the town with the Rock ?" All the ladies gather around him. "That's what the Rock thought !" he laughs. The Rock walks off with three girls in one arm and three in the other. He looks back over his shoulder and tells the Godfather, "Don't wait up for us !" The Godfather smiles and says, "Another satisfied customer."

Just then, Tiger Ali Singh and Babu approach him. Singh asks, "I heard that you are the man who can arrange female companionship for my servant Babu this evening, yes ?" The Godfather apologizes and tells him that he's all out of girls. Singh leaves in a huff with Babu rushing to keep up with him. The Godfather looks into the camera and shrugs, "Pimpin' ain't easy."

The shows ends with the tow truck hauling Vince McMahon's Lincoln Town Car away. We can see the Gulf of Mexico in the distance as we fade to black with the WWF logo.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Kohl Center Arena, Madison, WI

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviews: Michael Cole
Ring Announcer: Tony Chimel
Referees: Tim White, Jack Doan & Earl Hebner

Backstage Segment

The Jackyl's back is to us as he talks on a payphone. We hear bits and pieces of his conversation including a "so far so good," "are we set for tonight ?" and "it's all coming together !" The discussion then turns to money before he concludes the call with a "later, Paul." The Jackyl turns around and is startled to find the camera in his face. He has an expression that looks like that of the kid who got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. "What did you hear ??" he demands. He listens to Tony Chimel beginning to make the Truth Commission's introduction for the first match and rushes toward ringside.

1. The New Midnight Express ("Bodacious" Bart Gunn & "Bombastic" Bob Holly) w/ Jim Cornette vs. The Truth Commission (Recon aka Bull Buchanan & Sniper aka Luc Poirier) w/ The Jackyl & Kurrgan the Interrogator

Our opening contest featured a rare heel vs. heel tag team match that showcased two equally pompous and irritating managers in Jim Cornette and the Jackyl. As usual, Cornette insisted upon introducing his own team and snatched the mic away from Tony Chimel, but he was interrupted by the Jackyl before he could finish. The intrusion cost "Bombastic" Bob & "Bodacious" Bart 50 points. To make matters worse for the New Midnight Express, their opponents drew big-time heat during their ring entrance and padded their score by an additional 125 points. Adjustments aside, the match itself was a fairly even affair that took an abrupt turn in the Midnight's favor when Kurrgan climbed up onto the apron to interfere. Bart Gunn corralled him into a noggin knocker with Sniper which sent the Interrogator crashing hard to the floor below. "Bodacious" Bart then finished off the dazed Sniper with his Barton Buster Powerbomb to gain the pinfall at 5:03.

Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office

McMahon, Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco are all watching footage of ECW's Dudley Boyz interfering in the WWF Tag Team Title Match between the Headbangers and the New Age Outlaws in Houston during last week's episode of Monday Night RAW. McMahon is peeved and tells his associates, "I'm not paying for that second rate federation's losers to get national airtime on my dime ! Find out what the hell happened and make sure that it doesn't happen again !" Brisco and Patterson leave McMahon's office and immediately begin making inquiries.

2. Jeff Hardy (w/ Matt Hardy & Michael Hayes) vs. "Too Sexy" Brian Christopher (w/ Too Much Tag Team Partner Scott "Too Hot" Taylor)

It was an ominous sign for Brian Christopher when his sneak attack attempt during Tony Chimel's match introductions was thwarted by an alert Jeff Hardy who countered with a quick Mule Kick to the midsection. Things didn't get much better for Too Sexy once the opening bell rang. Jeff connected with a Handspring Back Elbow Smash after reversing's Christopher's corner whip. Hardy quickly followed with a Standing Somersault Leg Drop that sent Christopher scurrying to the floor for a much-needed time out. As it turned out, even that backfired. A Baseball Slide Drop Kick from Hardy drove Christopher straight into his partner Scott Taylor. Jeff then flew over the top rope with a Suicide Dive to the outside and landed on top of both of them. To top it all off, Too Sexy was accidentally tripped by Taylor once the action returned to the ring. Hardy seized the moment with a Swanton (Senton) Bomb from the top rope to finish off Christopher at 6:23. Jerry Lawler was beside himself throughout the contest, but could not contain his temper any longer after the pinfall. The King threw off his headset, got up into Scotty's face and scolded him for his gaffe. Lawler held up two fingers and shouted, "That's twice now that you've cost Brian a match, you idiot !! Christopher stepped in between them to keep the peace. Tony Chimel's microphone appeared to pick up Too Sexy saying, "Stay out of this, Dad !" - a claim that the King would later deny when confronted by Jim Ross. Lawler has been accused of showing bias toward Too Sexy during his match commentary by JR on several occasions, but the King has always refused to acknowledge any affiliation with Christopher.

3. "Lethal Weapon" Steve Blackman vs. D'Lo Brown of the Nation of Domination (w/ "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry)

Once again, Blackman dazzled the fans with his flashy glow-in-the-dark Filipino fighting stick entrance to tack on an additional 125 points to his score. D'Lo attempted to counter with a spirited in-ring promo before the match introductions, but the Lethal Weapon interrupted to earn himself another 50 points. Blackman wasn't quite done yet. A roll on his Technical Modifier increased his total by yet another 25 points, so it came as no surprise that he was the odds-on favorite to win the match. Brown knew he was up against it and pulled out all the stops to scrape out a victory. Senior Official Earl Hebner allowed D'Lo a lot of leeway with the rulebook, but had no choice but to disqualify him at 5:20 when Brown blatantly attacked Blackman with one of the fighting sticks. Mark Henry then entered the ring and joined his fellow Nation member in a post-match beat down on the Lethal Weapon until the unpredictable WWF Tag Team Champion Headbangers raced in from the back to make the save. Mosh and Thrasher walk a fine line between heel and babyface, but tonight they were clearly fan favorites.

RAW Rewind

We see footage from last week's Four Corners Match that featured Hunter Hearst Helmsely, "Marvelous" Marc Mero, The Godfather and Jeff Jarrett. The segment centers around a confrontation that took place during the contest involving Triple H and the Rock. (The Brahma Bull was providing guest commentator at the announcers' table.) We're shown Helmsley being rolled from behind by Marc Mero during the altercation to become the first elimination from the match. We cut to an interview with Michael Cole afterward in which a seething Helmsley (with a stone-faced Chyna standing behind him) promised to make "The Crock" the shortest reigning Intercontinental Champion in the history of the WWF.

4. "Vampire Warrior" Gangrel of the Brood (w/ Goblet of "Blood" & Fiery Entrance) vs. WWF European Champion The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust (w/ Luna Vachon & Hollywood "Shattered Dreams Production" Entrance )

This is a non-title match. Although he got some unexpected help from the Big Show along the way at Judgment Day, Gangrel was gloating over his Casket Match victory against the Undertaker during a pre-match interview with Michael Cole to increase his score by 75 points. The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust was hoping for similar results with his promo, but had his backstage interview interrupted by Terri Runnels. Rather than adding to his score, Terri's intrusion cost him 50 points. Runnels, previously known as Marlena, had once managed Goldust in the past, but the two had a bitter falling out. The repercussions of their separation came into play this evening. Dan "The Beast" Severn, who Terri (aka "Beauty") presently manages, has his sights firmly set upon Goldust's European Championship. The Beast came down to ringside and ambushed both Gangrel and Goldust with the Vampire Warrior's goblet while "Beauty" distracted Referee Tim White. Severn then put the dented cup in Goldust's hand and skedaddled out of the ring. White turned around to find the dazed Goldust holding the dented goblet and called for the bell at 4:39. Luna and Goldust protested vehemently, but the official's disqualification stood.

5. Mankind vs. "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn of D-Generation X (w/ Road Dogg)

They say that lightning never strikes the same place twice, but it did in a way tonight. Mankind and Bad Ass were embroiled in a highly competitive and entertaining battle when ECW's Sabu came out of nowhere to make his presence felt and impact the outcome of the match just as his compatriots the Dudley Boyz had done a week ago on RAW. With Billy prone on the canvas and his opponent setting himself on the top rope to deliver a high risk maneuver, Sabu ran down to ringside and gave Mankind a shove from behind. Mankind crashed awkwardly to the mat and appeared to have injured himself in the process. Oblivious to the mischief, Gunn hooked a leg with the equally oblivious Referee Jack Doan counting the pin at 6:12. Meanwhile, Road Dogg and Sabu were going at it hot and heavy OOR. Seeing his partner engaged in the brawl, Gunn immediately joined in. The New Age Outlaws were putting a clubberin' on Sabu when ECW 's Balls Mahoney raced down the ramp to joined the fray. Several officials and backstage personnel came out to break up the melee. The Outlaws then got back in the ring and invited Mahoney and Sabu to do likewise. Road Dogg grabbed Tony Chimel's microphone and layed down some trash talk on the ECW invaders while Billy checked on Mankind. In the meantime, Mr. McMahon had come down to the ring to see all the commotion for himself firsthand. The Dogg was still barking when McMahon told him to zip it and swiped the mic away to address Sabu and Mahoney. "You chumps are a little lost aren't you ?" the WWF's CEO asked, "Madison, Wisconsin is a long ways from Philly ! This is the Big League of professional wrestling, boys ! Why don't you go back home to your little hick towns of Pennsylvania before you get yourselves hurt !" Mahoney smiled and left with Sabu but not before answering McMahon with a parting shot, "You haven't heard the last of us, Vinny ! We're just beginning !" For one brief moment, the camera caught McMahon, Mankind and the New Age Outlaws standing side-by-side, united as one in the face of the invading ECW faction as we cut away to commercial.

WWF Christmas Promo

We see a montage of various WWF wrestlers hitting one another with chair shots to Bing Crosby's rendition of "Deck the Halls". We see Vince McMahon with bulging eyes and veins popping out of his neck screaming in "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's face to Burl Ives' "Have A Holly Jolly Christmas" followed by more chair shots, wrestlers being put through tables, and giving each other their finishers to Gene Autry's "Here Comes Santa Claus." The segment ends with the Godfather dressed as Santa and surrounded by his entourage of ladies giving us a merry "Ho ! Ho ! Ho !"

6. Owen Hart vs. "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock

We had the makings of an awesome scientific contest here between Shamrock and Hart. The two grapplers did not disappoint once the action got under way, however there was another ugly incident before the opening bell sounded. Owen cut a terrific backstage promo with Michael Cole earlier, but Shamrock chose to do his talking in the ring. While he was addressing the crowd, Taz, another ECW wrestler, stood up from his seat in the arena and began to heckle "The World's Most Dangerous Man" with some inflammatory and derogatory rhetoric. Some fans booed while others chanted "ECW ! ECW !" Harsh words were traded between Taz and Shamrock until security escorted the ECW wrestler out of the building. The confrontation seemed to overshadow the bout itself. The majority of Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler's commentary centered around the escalating situation between the two rival wrestling federations and what JR referred to as "The ECW Invasion". In the end, Shamrock induced a submission from Hart with his Ankle Lock finisher to gain the victory at 7:26.

7. WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & "The Big Red Machine" Kane vs. Big Trouble (The Big Show & The Big Boss Man) w/ Vince McMahon, Pat Patterson & Gerald Brisco

Vince McMahon has dubbed his new corporate tag team combination of the Big Boss Man and Big Show as "Big Trouble", as in, big trouble for whomever their opponents might be. Big Trouble drew big heat in tonight's Main Event. Fans were no doubt recalling their actions during Judgment Day as they soundly booed and jeered the duo during their ring entrance. On the flip side, the crowd was ecstatic to see the somewhat odd pairing of WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and "The Big Red Machine" Kane together once again. Big Trouble were the beneficiaries of some timely interference from McMahon's cronies Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson once the match got under way. The pair continually distracted Referee Tim White thereby allowing Big Trouble to get in quite a bit of dirty double-teaming behind the preoccupied official's back. The Boss Man and Big Show also made several illegal switches in the ring while assuring the confused ref that they had properly tagged in and out. Karma somehow has a way of evening the ledger, though, and the cosmic retribution came to ringside in the form of the Undertaker this evening. Big Show was attempting to give Kane a Verticle Suplex when the Deadman reached in and pulled Show's leg out from under him. The Big Red Machine fell on top of him with Tim White right there in position to count the winning pin at 10:02.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa 1998) - Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, IN

Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviews: Michael Cole
Ring Announcer: Lilian Garcia
Referees: Teddy Long, Tim White & Jack Doan

Company Meeting

The show opens with what appears to be the entire WWF roster assembled in the ring and milling about. "No chance in hell" brings out Vince McMahon along with his associates Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson. McMahon asks if everyone is present to which Patterson nods in acknowledgment.

McMahon: "Alright then, I'll cut right to the chase. There are a lot of people in that ring who don't like one another, but you're going to have to put your differences aside and ......

Just then, DX's music begins blaring over the PA system. McMahon closes his eyes in both anger and frustration and turns around to look back up the ramp. Out comes Shawn Michaels pulling up the zipper on his jeans and jogging down the ramp to ringside. The camera catches Triple H, Billy Gunn, Road Dogg and X-Pac all laughing in the ring.

Michaels: "Everyone relax, the Main Event has arrived !"

McMahon: "Gee, it was awfully decent of you to show up, Shawn. We're not keeping you from something pressing are we ?"

Michaels: "Sorry, Chief, I had to go !"

McMahon: "Here, let me hold the ropes for you, Mr. Main Event."

(McMahon sits on the 2nd rope and lifts the top rope so that Michaels can enter the ring.)

Michaels: "Did I miss anything ?

(McMahon shoots him a dirty look as HBK joins his DX cohorts in the ring. The Boss clears his throat, waits for quiet and then continues.)

McMahon: "As I was saying before Mr. Michaels graced us with his presence .... We are under attack by ECW. You'll notice that I said 'we'. That means you, and me and the entire company. All of us. Over the past several weeks, ECW wrestlers have been invading our arenas, disrupting our events and interfering in our matches. I don't know what this is all about yet but trust me when I say that I'll get to the bottom of it. In the meantime, we're beefing up security at our venues. I need all of you to be on your toes and watch each others backs. It's us verses them and I expect you to represent and defend this company accordingly."

We cut to commercial

1. Al Snow (w/ "Head" and "Help Me" written backwards on his forehead) vs. Savio Vega of Los Boricuas (w/ Jesus Castillo, Jorge Estrada Jr & Miguel Perez Jr.)

"What does everybody want ??" brought the fans to their feet and a loud chorus of "Head !!" in response to Al Snow's entrance. Al had an animated conversation with his mannequin head as he entered the ring and then borrowed Lilian's Garcia's microphone to address the crowd. Savio Vega was having none of that, however, and immediately interrupted the promo to cost Snow 50 points. Despite being badly outnumbered at ringside, Al made a good accounting of himself during the contest. He stunned his opponent with a series of Trapping Head Butts and nearly scored a pinfall with a Springboard Moonsault. The close call prompted Castillo and Estrada to jump up on the apron in preparation to break up the three count. Snow saw them and sent the pair crashing to the floor with a Double Clothesline. The distraction served it's purpose, though. When Al turned back around, he was greeted with Savio's Caribbean (Spinning Heel) Kick to the jaw which put him down for the three count at 7:16. Not content with the victory alone, all four members of Los Boricuas did a number on Snow after the bell until Taka Michinoku, Sho Funaki, Dick Togo and Men's Teioh of Kaientai raced in from the back to drive off the heels and make the save.

Backstage Segment

Michael Cole is interviewing the Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff) when Gangrel, Edge and Christian of the Brood walk onto the set. "You two are interns around here aren't you ?" Gangrel asks the Hardyz. Jeff and Matt look at each other with perplexed faces. "Go fetch my goblet of blood for me," the Vampire Warrior continues, "I'll need it for our match." Jeff attempts to explain to him that they're wrestlers but Gangrel cuts him off again, "Let's go, kid ! We're up next ! Get with the program will you !" Edge and Christian push the Hardyz along as we go back to ringside.

2. Droz & Prince Albert vs. Edge & Christian of the Brood (w/ Gangrel)

Impressed with some ink and piercings that Prince Albert did for him at a local tattoo parlor recently, Droz has not only struck up a bond of friendship with Albert, but has also formed a tag team with him as well ! The duo made their debut tonight against the Brood and were tested right off the bat when Edge and Christian attempted to jump them from behind during Lilian Garcia's match introductions. Albert & Droz were ready for them, however, and successfully staved off the sneak attack to rack up 200 bonus points. The two were able to dominate the early going, however their inexperience as a team began to manifest itself as the match wore on. Using their speed quite effectively, Christian and Edge made frequent tags and were able to prevent Prince Albert from reaching his corner. That all changed once the Hardy Boyz came to ringside with Gangrel's goblet of blood. Matt threw the liquid into Christian's eyes allowing Albert to finally tag out. The blinded Christian then stumbled right into Droz's New Jersey Nap Time (Sit Out Powerbomb) for the pinfall at 7:52.

Backstage Segment

The Big Boss Man is addressing a troop of security personnel who are all dressed in similar S.W.A.T. team attire. They are going over their assignments to guard all the points of entry into the Market Square Arena. The Boss Man hands each of them an ECW program with photos and profiles of all of their wrestlers. He tells his squad to memorize their faces and to be prepared to use force to prevent them from entering. The group immediately deploys to their various stations.

3. X-Pac of D-Generation X (w/ "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna) vs. "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal (w/ Tool Box, Plunger, and Heavy Cockney Accent ??)

Apparently the "Real Man's Man" is a jack-of-all-trades. Rather than donning his customary hard hat and flannel shirt construction attire, Regal wore a Roto Rooter plumber's uniform instead. Steven Regal may indeed be going through an identity crisis of sorts, but the man can wrestle and is undefeated thus far during his tenure here in the WWF. His winning streak will be severely tested this evening, especially after X-Pac fired up (no pun intended) the fans with his "Your ass is grass and I'm going to smoke it !" catchphrase. The promo drew an abundance of "X-Pac 4:20" signs in the crowd and added 150 points to his score. Chyna further hampered Regal's chances. Her cheap shots and frequent interference cost the Real Man's Man an additional 100 points. Desperate times called for desperate measures (and a trip to the tool box while Referee Jack Doan's back was turned.) Regal pulled out a pipe wrench from his tool kit and clobbered X-Pac with it while the official was embroiled in a heated confrontation with Chyna. Doan turned around to find Regal making the cover on his KO'd opponent and counted the pin at 5:17. Regal's winning streak continues !

Backstage Segment

We see two of the security detachment bashing Tommy Dreamer with nightsticks after the ECW wrestler attempted to sneak into the arena disguised as a hotdog vendor. The Boss Man slaps the cuffs on Dreamer and escorts him to a police car that is waiting outside. Mr. McMahon is also there and slams the car door shut after Dreamer is forced into the backseat of the cruiser. McMahon tells the officer, "Get him out of here !" and pats the Boss Man on the back, We watch the police car speed off into the night.

4. Sable vs. Jacqueline (w/ "Marvelous" Marc Mero)

Sable was in the process of cutting a promo on her opponent in the ring prior to their match when Jacqueline took exception to her comments. She swiped the mic away from Sable and proceeded to lay down a promo of her own. The double whammy cost Sable 125 points. It looked like things might go downhill for Jacqueline, though, when Referee Teddy Long got fed up with "Marvelous" Marc Mero's shenanigans at ringside and ordered him to return to the back. As it turned out, Sable would have other issues to deal with from OOR. The Big Boss Man's security force may have been successful in locking down the arena from ECW wrestler intrusions, however they may have let their guard down when it came to the rival federation's valets. Dawn Marie came out of no where and tripped Sable as she was being whipped to the ropes. Jacqueline capitalized on the interference by catching her stunned opponent with a Tornado DDT to score the pin at 5:21.

Backstage Segment

Jacqueline is celebrating her victory with Marc Mero when Sable comes up from behind her and spins her around.

Sable: "That was a cheap win !"

Jacqueline shrugs and smiles. "I take them any way that I can get them."

Sable: "Didn't you hear what McMahon said earlier ?? You're suppose to be a team player ! You're suppose to have my back !"

Jacqueline: "Honey, the only backs that I care about are Marc's and mine. Now run along and find somebody else to be your babysitter."

Sable storms off as Jacqueline and Mero share a laugh.

5. L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal) w/ Sunny vs. Southern Justice (Mark Canterbury & Dennis Knight) w/ Tennessee Lee

L.O.D. certainly had things going their way right from the get go. Hawk's "What a rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrush !" growl drew a huge pop from the fans as did the scantily clad Sunny who's outfit, or lack there of, barely covered anything at all. As a result, Hawk & Animal added 200 points to their score and were heavy favorites to win this contest. To their credit, Canterbury & Knight hung in there and gave L.O.D. all they could handle. This battle ended up on the floor with several chairs and the timekeeper's bell coming into play. Referee Tim White counted the legal men (Animal and Canterbury) out at 6:36, however a Double Disqualification would have also been justified.

Backstage Segment

Michael Cole interviews the Rock and Faarooq of the Nation of Domination. The Rock dominates the entire promo with his catchphrases. Faarooq seems irked that he is unable to get a word in edgewise. The segment ends with the two heading toward the ring for the Rock's upcoming match against Bradshaw. Faarooq grabs the Brahma Bull by the arm and stops him in his tracks. "Don't forget who's in charge here," he says sternly. There's an awkward silence as the Rock gives him a defiant look before they continue on. They pass by Triple H who says, "Hey Rock, keep that Intercontinental Belt nice and warm for me !"

6. WWF Intercontinental Champion The Rock of the Nation of Domination (w/ Faarooq) vs. Blackjack Bradshaw (w/ Blackjack Windham)

This is a non-title bout. Despite the Rock being a heel, the self-professed "Most Electrifying Man in Sports" was well-received by the crowd at the Market Square Arena to earn himself a bonus of 75 points. (It didn't exactly hurt matters any when the Brahma Bull grabbed the house mic away from Lilian Garcia and shouted, "Finally, the Rock has come back to Indianapolis !" The Rock then ambushed his adversary before the opening bell rang to grab the early advantage. More adept to tag team wrestling than singles competition, Bradshaw struggled throughout this contest. Barry Windham tried to lend a hand (literally) by reaching into the ring in an attempt to trip the Rock, but ended up catching Bradshaw's foot instead to cost him another 100 points. The Rock went on to win the match, but the conclusion was not without controversy. With Referee Jack Doan busy admonishing Windham, Faarooq snuck into the ring and appeared to charge at the Rock with a Clothesline attempt. Utilizing some quick reflexes, the Intercontinental Champ ducked with Bradshaw taking the full brunt of the blow instead. The cowboy staggered straight into a Small Package to seal the Rock's victory at 7:06. After the bell, Michael Cole interviewed the Nation members again; this time regarding the somewhat curious ending to the match. The Rock blew it off as a simple "miscommunication" between he and Faarooq, but the look on his face suggested otherwise. Faarooq insisted that he had told the Brahma Bull to duck. The Rock eyed him suspiciously and said, "I did duck ........ but I didn't hear you tell me to."

Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office

McMahon, Patterson and Brisco are all discussing the ECW issue. The boss is pleased that Dreamer was apprehended, but realizes that security still needs to be tightened after the Dawn Marie incident. He says that he suspects there's a rat in the company. Various names begin to be bantered about. Brisco proposes that McMahon's arch nemesis "Stone Cold" Steve Austin may be involved. Surprisingly, the WWF kingpin disagrees with him. Other names are mentioned. Pat Patterson then brings up Shawn Michaels. Again, McMahon differs in opinion, but says Patterson's suggestion reminds him that he still has some unfinished business to attend to this evening. With that, the boss abruptly gets up, excuses himself and leaves the office.

7. "HBK" Shawn Michaels of D-Generation X (w/ Hunter Hearst Helmsley) vs. Val Venis (w/ Ryan Shamrock)

Both combatants bolstered their respective totals by 75 points each with some flashy arrivals to the ring. The former adult film star Venis had the girls swooning with his lecherous "Helllllllllllllooooooooo, Ladies, " drawl as he twirled a towel off his waist and gyrated his hips for them during his introduction. Not to be upstaged, Michaels came out next with his trademark flamboyant entrance complete with "Are you ready ? Break it down !" theme music, pyrotechnics and a generous abundance of DX crotch chops. The points totals indicated that HBK was by far the favorite to win this one, but Val Venis didn't get the memo. He jumped out to the early advantage after catching Michaels with a Spinebuster off the ropes and then served up ten mounted punches in the corner while the crowd counted along. HBK quickly put an end to that with a Manhattan Drop and then went up top to deliver a Flying Elbow Smash. Venis was able to kick out of the subsequent pin attempt and countered a Michaels' Back Body Drop with the Big Package (Bridging Fisherman's Suplex). HBK managed to lift a shoulder to spoil the pin and sent Venis to the ropes. A violent three-man collision left both of the grapplers and Referee Teddy Long sprawled out on the mat seeing stars. Ryan Shamrock tried to assist her man but was chased to the back by Helmsley. Vince McMahon then ambled down to ringside, entered the ring with a folding chair, and smashed it over Michael's noggin just as HBK was getting back to his feet. The boss dragged Val's arm across Michaels' chest just as Teddy Long was shaking out the cobwebs. The woozy official crawled over and counted the pin at 10:38 to give Venis the victory. The cameraman follows McMahon as he walks back up the ramp to the back. The WWF CEO points back over his shoulder and says "He may be the 'Main Event', but I'm the Boss."
