November 9th, 1997 is forever a date of infamy in the hearts and minds of wrestling fans as reality overtook the usual veil of professional wrestling in a way so blunt, it felt like a kick in the teeth and a stomp on the heart at how it went down. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

It's rather pointless to give yet another recap of the importance, the scandal, and the effect of the Montreal Screwjob had on the business, so it's my pleasure to say this isn't that kind of story.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

This is a "What if?" story of complete fantasy. A "What if?" of factors that more than likely never would've come together, something that would've taken the patience and understanding of too many egos to get past initial talks, let alone actual details and planning of execution.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

Thankfully this is wrestling, and it's a mad, mad world that breaks all expectations in the most surprising of ways. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

So go ahead, think "What if?"</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;">

From the traditional multi-man tag team bouts, to the main event of Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship, there's plenty of reason for all of the WWF Superstars to strive to survive! It's easy to get lost with so many scores to settle however, so let's take a quick look at how we've gotten to tonight!</div></div></div></div></div></div><p></p><p></p><p></p><div

Recently, Paul tried to up the ante by attempting to take Bart Gunn hostage, only for previous victim Shark Boy to try to make the save but ending up getting chokeslammed to hell! Instead, Shark Boy is now the hostage, with the devilish Bearer promising to make a proper example out of him should The Undertaker decide to not appear at Survivor Series!</div></div></div></div></div></div><p></p><p></p></div></blockquote><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div

<p>Memphis Mafia - <em>King helps his boy cheat to take this one.</em></p><p>

Southern Statesmen - <em>Not so much for the Godwinns, but the NAO pick up the win so they can challenge the O-L-D for the titles.</em></p><p>

Team USA - <em>Put the faces over here, because Shamrock or Vader are your most likely next World contender... at least until Austin shakes the IC belt.</em></p><p>

Steve Austin - <em>The feel good story happens as Austin comes back from injury to re-win the belt he didn't lose.</em></p><p>

Nation of Domination - <em>Rocky propels his team to victory, leading him toward taking the group over...</em></p><p>

Shawn Michaels - <em>Shawn takes the win by DQ, not getting the title. Since I'm thinking that Bret is sticking around.</em></p><p> </p><p>

1. No</p><p>

2. Dude Love</p><p>

3. Hall and Nash return to the WWF and join with DX</p>

From the traditional multi-man tag matches to the incoming return of Steve Austin to the high tension main event of Bret Hart versus Shawn Michaels, the theme of survival is really played up as a matter of pride. Once the video ends, we then head to Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler who do their job well as they hype up the night and what it means to survive as things get started with the first match of the night!

style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> When the match begins the two men in the ring are each team's respective leaders in TAKA Michinoku and Brian Christopher, the Japanese flier looking for some early payback against the Southern Son. Unfortunately for TAKA, Brian doesn't want anything to do with him and instead tags in his lacky Scott Taylor to fight for him. Before Scott gets between the ropes, he's slapped on the back by a stern looking Bob Holly, the look on his face enough to quiet any complaints as the two move out the way for Holly's entrance.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Having already been witness to the intensity of Holly's new look and attitude on RAW, TAKA takes a cautious approach towards his new opponent, one that serves him well as he's able to use his size and speed to avoid getting caught by Holly's arms. Holly is a smart veteran however, and manages to drive TAKA toward the enemy corner, leading to the inevitable as Brian and Scott grab him by the arms to keep him still for a high speed forearm smash!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> While the referee admonishes them for the dirty move, the damage is done as TAKA is now in the control of the Mafia and put through the ringer, thanks to the alternating trio of Bob, Scott and Brian. Their fourth member tries to get his own licks in, but when Brian starts yells at him for daring to get in the way, CIMA decides to cut his losses and begins walking away, causing the rest of the Mafia to call after him. Sensing the opportunity, TAKA takes advantage of the distraction and rolls up an unsuspecting and legal Taylor, catching the whole Mafia by surprise as he gets the first elimination!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With TAKA resting in his corner, Taylor eliminated, and the Honky Tonk Man managing to convince CIMA to return to the match, things end up reaching an even state as Flash leads the luchadores into battle against their fragmented opponents. Holly's experience proves invaluable for the Mafia in staying alive though, as the veteran catches Aguila during a moonsault, and Lizmark during a springboard for two big Alabama Slams and eliminations! Flash makes sure to return the favor in the end however, taking CIMA out of the equation during a rest for Holly!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With feet on fire from making things even once more, Flash looks to try to put Brian away with a top rope ending, his usual charisma getting the crowd fired up as he climbs to the top. As he perches and waits to get his balance, he's quickly knocked off by a returning Holly from behind! Seeing the opening made for him, Brian scurries to the top with a wide cocky grin, taking in the boos before leaping off and onto Funk with the Alabama Jam!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's one versus two now for a somewhat recovered TAKA Michinoku, but even if he goes down he'll at least take Christopher with h-and Brian just tagged in Holly again. Arguably the two best wrestlers in the entire bout, TAKA and Bob put on a showcase of desperation as neither man lets the other keep them down for very long. Holly is the least recovered however, and with TAKA's speed he's getting wound down bit by bit...that is until Brian catches him by the foot during a moonsault attempt. With his momentum ruined, TAKA is left wide open for the setup of the Alabama Slam by Holly, the veteran backing up his new attitude with his third and final elimination of the match.</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grade: B+]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/UvlDpo0.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/EoREvpm.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/4v0bipb.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/0lVuWpj.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/WYmqPYr.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/N9xnJjx.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Things go backstage for a few minutes to show the entering Hart Foundation, cameras following the group inside the Molson Stadium as Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler talk about the various matches the Foundation is involved in tonight.

The Black Legion spend their time talking (well shouting in the case of LOD) about preparing the Outlaws for a real beating come next month's In Your House pay-per-view. The Southern Statesmen on the other hand, talk about beating up the wannabes in the Blackjacks and the hasbeens in the Legion, promising to become the new WWF Tag Team Champions of the world with the

style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's the lead rivals once again starting the match, with the Legion of Doom's Animal standing off with "Badass" Billy Gunn of the New Age Outlaws. Standing that is until Billy lets loose a flurry of kicks to Animal's gut, the sudden chain of impact actually bringing down the legendary Road Warrior for a quick Fame Asser! Feeling cocky at bringing down one of their opponents so early, Billy places a foot on Animal's chest for the pin...but it's immediately kicked out of as Animal roars back to his feet! Filled with fury, Animal goes rabid against Billy Gunn, tossing the blond Outlaw all around ring before bringing him down with a crowd pleasing press slam! Animal goes for the pin, but the Road Dogg is quick to stop it with an elbow drop on the head!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Moving quickly to save himself, Billy tags in Henry Godwinn just as Animal is rousing himself. With an instinct that only comes from being family, Henry tosses Animal to his team's corner before tagging in his brother (? Cousin?) Phineas to join in some good ole' fashioned southern stomping. Eventually the two feel like rubbing in their dominance in the face of their rivals, whipping Animal into the ropes facing the ramp. All this does however is give the lone Road Warrior the chance to fight back as he brings down the Godwinns on his return with a double shoulder tackle!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> From there Animal is able to make the tag to his partner Hawk, allowing a repeat of the earlier classic Road Warrior dominance...that is until the Outlaws again stop a pinfall thanks to Billy Gunn kicking Hawk in the skull after he overpowers Phineas. Teams are then rotated once more as Hawk tags in Blackjack Bradshaw, and Phineas tags in Road Dogg, the loudmouth looking very happy he's not facing either Road Warrior. Bradshaw is quick to put fear into Dogg very soon though, going right at his opponent with a well-learned brawling style that could make even Stan Hansen proud at how stiff it is. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> For the next few minutes the match becomes a sort of isolated fight between the Blackjacks and the New Age Outlaws as they tag in their respective partners, which over time apparently causes the Godwinns to get antsy. So antsy in fact, that they decide they want to fight and they want to do it now. So they attack the Road Warriors in their corner, leading to a fight that is quick to spill out up the ramp! At first Referee Chioda tries to get the four men back to their respective corners, but his orders fall on deaf ears as the Road Warriors and the Godwinns disappear behind the curtains in the back.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's at this point that Billy Gunn and Blackjack Windham have actually stopped fighting to witness the brawl make its way into the back, Chioda meanwhile calling for the bell to signal that due to them leaving the match, the Road Warriors and Godwinns have both been disqualified and are thus eliminated! Glancing at each other to see reactions, Billy and Windham share a moment of confusion that is quickly broken by Gunn's same flurry of kicks and Fame Asser ending that was used on Animal at the start. Only this time, there's no kickout.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With a mighty Texas shout that would make even Stan Hansen stop hating humanity and show pride, Bradshaw goes at Billy to get revenge for his partner with a high speed lariat! With what must've been the quickest thinking, Billy gets down and catches Bradshaw by the foot, causing the fired up Texan to go down hard. With whatever momentum he had ruined and with the Outlaws' tricks stopping any chance of fighting back, it isn't too long from there that Bradshaw is put away by Billy with a final Fame Asser.</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grade: B]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/OdZsxjV.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/vrKvKyT.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/RwZbP3r.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> After a quick in-house commercial featuring the Milton Bradley Karate Fighters Holiday Tournament, we're brought to a rather somber scene as Paul Bearer leads Kane to the ring, the limp body of Shark Boy hanging over his shoulder the whole way.

Team Canada start by mocking their rivals for being a group of misfits banding together, sarcastically wishing them luck in trying to pull themselves together to face a real unit! Team USA meanwhile humbly admits to having been coming up short against their opponents, as well as the loss of Goldust definitely being a hit to their prides and gameplan. They say that even with Goldust down and out however, there are plenty of strong Americans ready and willing to take the fight to Canada, and they'll do it

style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> While the earlier promo was just trash talk, there's always a bit of truth when making insults and statements like the ones Team Canada did. Unfortunately for Team USA, Marc Mero proved that there was a bit of a cohesion issue from the very beginning. After shooing off his wife Sable with his robe, Mero began the match arguing with Steve Blackman on who should start the bout. Thankfully for Team USA, team leader Ken Shamrock intimidated Mero back into the corner, leaving Blackman to start off with the British Bulldog!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Surprisingly, the fight between these two ends up in a bit of a power contest as Blackman shows that his strongman strength can hang with the famed power game of the British Bulldog pretty well. Unhappy with this fact, Bulldog makes a whistling noise to Neidhart on the outside, prompting him to attempt to enter the ring! The referee immediately goes to stop him but it turns out to all be a part of the plan as Bulldog hits a low blow on Blackman, the cheap shot allowing him to hit Steve with the Running Powerslam for the first elimination!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With Steve gone, it's now Mero's time to shine for his country! Only instead of entering the ring, he just hops off the apron and walks away entirely...shaking his head and ignoring the calls of Vader and Shamrock as he goes up the ramp...and getting counted out by referee Tim White as he reaches the back. With the numbers of Team USA now cut in half, a laughing Bulldog tags in Doug Furnas to take on a grim looking Ken Shamrock; both Ken and Vader knowing that it'll be a hard fight to victory with their team having fallen apart like this.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> The difficulty is proven in the minutes after the tags, as Shamrock is put through a lesson in tag team tactics by the world traveled duo of Doug Furnas and Phil LaFon. While it's hard for one man to stand against Ken, these two do a pretty good job of wearing him down bit by bit, their success even causing Doug to get cocky as he slaps Shamrock across the face. Unfortunately for them, that proved to be the biggest mistake they could've done.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Enraged by the slap, a furious Shamrock immediately starts suplexing and slamming Furnas all over the ring, his temper having snapped as he holds nothing back in his power. Sensing the danger his teammate is in, Phil rushes into the ring during a pin attempt but gets caught for a Belly-to-Belly Suplex by Ken! The Bulldog and Neidhart try to offer their own support, but Vader leaps into action as he levels Jim and brawls with Bulldog to the outside! Roaring with absolute intensity, Shamrock goes on a roll of eliminations as he makes Phil and Doug tap out within seconds to his Ankle Lock, Neidhart suffering more pain as he's put out right after with a trio of Belly-to Bellys!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With the Canadian crowd loving his fury, Shamrock stands victorious in the middle of the ring but a crashing sound from off camera reminds him that there's still one more challenger left, the British Bulldog. Said challenger is more than eager to meet Ken in the ring, already hyped up from throwing Vader through the barricade on the outside, and meets him right in the middle! What follows is a meeting of muscle as both men try to outpower the other but whenever it seems like one man is in the lead, the other shifts things back to an even balance!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> After whipping Shamrock into Tim White on a reversal attempt, Bulldog gives his second lowblow of the night as he gets Ken from down below....but a returning Vader prevents any chance of capitalizing on it as he distracts him from the apron! A distraction which gives Ken the time and chance to regroup from the cheap shot and turn Bulldog around for a Belly-to-Belly that is followed up right after with the Ankle Lock! With Bulldog screaming in pain and the Canadian crowd screaming in excitement, the seconds pass like years, making it all the more sweeter when Bulldog finally taps out just as Tim White comes to! A victory of payback for the USA in the heart of Canada!</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grade: B+]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/lu22m4Q.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/3lx3Eih.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/0txODZp.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> We go backstage to cool off the crowd a bit following that display of intensity, showing them the rather late entrance of everybody's favorite group of rulebreakers, Degeneration X.

The video then goes into more recent events, with Austin having made his presence known in all of Owen's Intercontinental title matches, attacking Owen to make sure he kept the title warm for his return.

Wanting to keep to his promises of putting Owen through a beating, Austin wastes no time in tossing Hart out of the ring after a heavy right hand keeps him rocked! Unfortunately for Stone Cold, Owen recovers fast and sends him into the guardrail shoulder first!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Outside with plenty of painful surfaces for Owen to toss him into is not where Austin wants to be, but with Owen in control he doesn't have much of a choice as he's sent into the guardrail and even steel steps over and over. Keeping conscious of referee Earl Hebner's count, Hart continuously rolls in and out of the ring to extend the time he has to toss Austin around, only for Steve to get his second wind during one of these rolls as he kicks Hart in the gut upon return and brings him down with a sudden Stunner on the outside!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With Austin in control he makes sure to pay back Hart for the earlier suffering, tossing Owen into a corner of the guardrails before stomping away at him until he's barely sitting up anymore. Stone Cold isn't satisfied just yet however as he pulls Owen up and back into the ring before sending him into the corner for a second set of stompings! Jim Ross pointing out that literally he's living up to his promise of stomping a mudhole into Owen Hart, with Lawler commentating that it looks more like Austin is trying to stomp a hole in Owen's chest instead!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> After being pushed back from the corner by Hebner, Austin decides to bring things to an end as he stands Owen up, but as he tries to hit the Stunner Owen pushes him towards the ropes! Owen catches him on his way back, rolling Steve up and putting his feet on the ropes for that needed leverage, but Hebner sees it and calls off the pin! Hart angrily gets in Earl's face to argue for the pin, forgetting about Austin who reminds him of his presence with a Lou Thesz Press from out of nowhere!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> After a few seconds of pounding away at Owen, Austin again tries to stand him up, but Hart gives a kick to the gut and gets Stone Cold's head between his legs! The commentary team panic at this familiar position, wondering if Owen will truly get his wish of breaking Austin's neck yet again, only for Steve to send Owen right over to a roar of approval from the crowd! Dazed by the impact, Owen slowly makes his way back up and into a boot to the gut from Stone Cold! With a final two fingered salute to his rival, Austin puts Owen down with a final Stunner before covering him to win back his Intercontinental Championship!</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>OOC: Splitting this up into two parts as I feel like the SS post is long enough, and with starting a new diary I don't want to make too long of one continuous post.

Once in the ring he doesn't hold back his excitement, Jim addressing the crowd with an unusual amount of cheer as he explains his absence as of late being due to negotiations taking a bit longer than he would've liked. Negotiations of what you may ask? Why only the number one free agent on the scene today! "Double J" Jeff Jarrett!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><span>http://i.imgur.com/bDnQIQh.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With a full light-up costume (and bonus light-up guitar), Jeff makes his way down the ramp to the sounds of one excited Jim Cornette...and a crowd not exactly too thrilled at the return of the "Hottest Free Agent." Said reaction ends up getting to both Cornette and Jarrett, prompting Jeff to demand that the people of Montreal show him the respect and adoration a "star" of his caliber deserves! This of course only increases the volume of negativity, causing Jeff to rant that if the crowd don't believe in just how big of a talent he is, he'll show them by beating up anybody in the back who wants a piece of THE superstar!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><span>http://i.imgur.com/9R0kLZs.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Accompanied by his usual groovy tune and roar of crowd support, Dude Love comes out and jives his way down the ramp with a mic of his own in hand. As Dude enters the ring Jeff tries to ask him who the hell he thinks he is, but Dude interrupts him with his smooth talk and scolding him for stopping the Dude's walk!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><em>"....you see daddio, I was in the back and showing some fine dime honeys how to groove like the Dude when I heard your cry, your plea.

Not quite able to believe what just happened, Jeff goes for the cover twice more and ends up with the same result for both times as Dude just does not seem to want to stay down! Finally accepting that his favorite method was just not enough, Jeff picks up Dude and talks more trash before slapping him across the face...getting one in return that sends him reeling to the ropes!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's obvious now that while the guitar shot took a lot out of him, Dude is still standing and hanging in there for a fight against the cocky country singer. A fact with Jeff does not appreciate and tries to stop as he comes at Dude with a more serious offense and less showboating. Unfortunately for Jeff every time he thinks he has Dude on the ropes, Dude ends up surprising him and gets off a counter that shocks Jeff at the sheer resiliency Dude holds. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> After a while Cornette begins to shout for Jeff to use the Stroke, the seasoned manager knowing that the longer this goes on, the more openings Dude will find as Jeff gets more frustrated. Thankfully for him, Jarrett isn't too far gone in his anger and gets Dude in the setup for his finishing maneuver, only to get caught with a shot to the gut that allow Dude to lock in and hit his Double-Underhook DDT! Before he can make the cover however, Cornette is on the apron and arguing with the referee to buy time for Jeff! Time that Jeff uses wisely as he waits for Dude to confront Jim before rolling out the ring!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Using the time to rest himself, Dude watches from in-ring as Jeff and Jim have a heated argument on the outside. After a few seconds it seems that an agreement is made as JJ and JC decide to cut their losses and head to the back, Jeff shouting to Dude that he "isn't worth the time" before turning his back on the ring. Dude doesn't seem thrilled about winning this way, but accepts it regardless as he does his dance for the crowd after referee Tim White calls for the count-out!</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grade: C]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/49tP0fo.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/A5EeLJy.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/RTYzIyq.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/kQLMHHM.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/2C9X5Mn.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/n2x9k0r.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> We go to the back for Michael Cole to conduct the first of two interviews for the final and arguably biggest, traditional Survivor Series tag match of the night! His guests are the Nation of Domination and as usual leader Farooq is in an all-business mood as leads the conversation, telling Cole that the Nation is at full force and ready to show that they are the top group in the WWF as they take on the largest group of men in their way to date. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> He also runs down Ahmed Johnson, telling him that he's had many a chance to join the Nation and really take his destiny into his own hands, but instead he wants to run around with their enemies and stay mediocre for the rest of his life. As far as Farooq is concerned, that's fine. Just makes it all the more easier to make him pay for deciding to cross the Nation one time too many.</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grade: C-]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/Q2dFSIs.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/zGalUOp.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/8t0D4Kv.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/SnA5Wi8.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/wSiuM31.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/sXRyq6B.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Kevin Kelly is up next right after with the second of the two interviews, this time with the Nation of Apocalypse as Ahmed Johnson...tries to lead the interview. It's a shouted mess of a threat to beat up Farooq, but thankfully that's as far as Ahmed gets as Brian Adams takes over from there. He says that he and his boys are expecting one hell of a tough fight tonight, but that's just the way they like it. He tells the Nation that they may have gotten the drop on them on RAW with their new member Rikishi, but tonight the NOA promise to return the favor!</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums"

style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> If there's one thing the NOA have to their advantage over the NOD, it's the sheer power game all of their members bring to their team. Thankfully for the NOD they have plenty of muscle to spare as they send out their new member in Rikishi to square off with Skull for the start of the match. For the first few minutes its a typical battle of the brutes as both men begin with a heavy brawl, but Rikishi comes out the winner with a surprise as he drops Skull with a Savate Kick to the...well skull.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Furious at his brother's elimination, 8-Ball dives from his corner and rushes at Rikishi with an arm at the ready! Only instead of his arm connecting, his head takes the shot instead as Rikishi strikes once more with that vicious Savate Kick. He decides to add insult to injury right after as he tags in the Rock to finish 8-Ball off, Rocky more than happy to do so with a bit of trash talk before catching Ball with the Rock Bottom for elimination number two!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> From there the NOA spends the next few minutes in peril as they're already down two members of their team, but Adams is a decent general for the remaining three and keeps up a strategy of constant tagging, one the NOD is happy to copy as well. For the NOA the tagging out becomes more of a method of survival and stopping fatigue, meanwhile for the NOD their switches become opportunities for more cheap shots by members on the outside. An opening comes for the NOA when Ahmed seemingly snaps, leaping like a wild man to the top rope where one D'Lo Brown was perched upon; his plan of a Frog Splash to put away Johnson turning into a Top-Rope Pearl River Plunge that puts him away instead!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Picking up the energy inspired by that elimination, Chainz and Brian Adams do some work of their own soon after, leading to the elimination of Rikishi and Kama as the leaders of the DOA work together to keep them in their corner and away from Nation support! Farooq gets energy of his own because of this however, leading to his Dominator living up to its name as Adams and Chainz get laid out when trying to stand up against his force. He can't stay going forever though, and tells Rocky to "finish him quick" as he tags him in to take on Ahmed.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Unfortunately for the Rock, he's facing an intensely focused Ahmed as the feeling of desperation at being the last man on his team settles in and spurs him on to fight hard. The Rock fights back as hard as he can just as well, with dirty moves like raking the eyes helping hang against Johnson, but Ahmed's power game is at an all time high to his adrenaline pushing him to survive. After whipping Rocky into the corner of the NOD, Ahmed signals to the crowd that the time for elimination has come around again, only for him to miss Farooq tag in from behind! Focusing on eliminating the Rock in the middle of the ring, Ahmed sets him up for the Plunge only to end up dropped to the mat after a surprise lariat from behind by Farooq!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With a shout of victory of his own, Farooq grabs around Ahmed's chest to prepare for the lift portion of his Dominator but Johnson breaks out and strikes back with a flurry of fists! Dazed by the sudden comeback, Farooq is unable to stop Johnson from getting him in position next, Rocky still recovering and forced to watch as Farooq is taken down and out by the Pearl River Plunge! With the crowd cheering his energy, Ahmed turns his attention to the last man left....the Rock. Sensing the danger he's now in, Rocky acts fast as he manages to trip Ahmed face-first into the ropes, giving him enough time to stand and start off strong in another face off!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Like a man possessed, Rocky fires off hard shots to Ahmed in an effort to keep him rocked and under control, but with a roar of defiance Johnson is back in the game as he dishes pain back to the Rock with strikes of his own! Looking for some more high impact offense, Ahmed whips Rock into the ropes and waits for him to return, only for Rocky to come back with a surprise in the form of a Float-Over DDT! Exhausted and worn down, both men spend time on the mat trying to recover but Rock is up first with an impressive kip up! Knowing he has the advantage right now, the Rock waits patiently as Ahmed stirs and rises; the last member of the Nation catching him just as he turns around for the setup and execution in the middle of the mat, of the Rock Bottom! With nobody to stop him and all of Ahmed''s momentum brought to a halt, the Rock covers Johnson for the definitive one, two three!</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>[Grades: A*/A*]</strong></div></div></div></div></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/R1YYGGi.jpg</span><span>http://i.imgur.com/oMGNWMy.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's main event time as the crowd is shown a video that not only hypes the bout, but recaps the animosity and emotions behind the rivalry between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Starting from their Wrestlemania 12 Ironman Match, the video goes down the various comments they've made about each other throughout the years while showing some of the attacks and fights they've had as well. It also spends time highlighting the differences they have toward each other's attitudes and personalities both in and out of the ring, ending with vicious promises between the two to come out of the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Things are then followed by special backstage entrances for the two men, with the crowd getting to see as both men leave their respective locker rooms and make their way through the stadium and to the entryway from the back. Surprisingly enough, neither come out with their respective units to the ring, just themselves and the fire to prove they're the better man...and flags.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Coming out with the Canadian flag under his arm, Shawn does his usual showboat routine for the audience before quickly turning the whole crowd against him as he begins to deface the flag in his dancing. They get a reprieve from the insults soon after thankfully as Bret Hart's own entrance begins, the proud Canadian patriot obviously a hero in his nation and doubly so as he brings a new flag to hang on the side of the ring with pride.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> As the theatrics calm down, both men stand off in the middle of the ring as referee Earl Hebmer holds the title above them both.

Bret continues like a man possessed as he takes his frustration on Shawn with strike after strike, all sense of technical prowess forgotten as months worth of anger takes hold of Hart. Anger that is translated pretty well to Shawn as Bret clotheslines him out of the ring!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> The punishment for Michaels continues on the outside as Bret uses the environment to his advantage, smashing Shawn on every piece of guardrail available. Eventually he decides even that isn't enough and tosses Shawn over the rail and into the crowd before following after! By now it's clear to Earl Hebner just how out of control things might get, and he calls for backup as he tries to get both men back into the ring.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Personnel and officials swarm the area as Bret batters away at Shawn, Vince McMahon being heard over the noise telling Hebner that "things have changed, no count-outs or disqualifications!" An instruction that the commentators repeat for the broadcast and Bret appears to have heard as he takes a chairs and smashes it on Shawn's back! The shot appears to be a jolt to Shawn to keep fighting, as the next time Bret tries to hit him again with the chair, he's sent over and onto the ringside mat with a painful landing!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Looking to not be on the losing end of the brawl, Michaels quickly makes his way back over to pound away at Bret before stopping just to be able to pick him up and send him flying over the Spanish announce table! Setting up the steps next to it like a ramp, Shawn waits for Bret to rise to his feet before running forward and leaping for a crossbody! Bret catches him mid-air first however, and sends him over and to the crowd once again and back first on the audience's chairs!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Climbing over the rail to keep up his offense, Bret is caught by surprise by a sudden strike from Shawn that bends him over! A position perfect for Michaels as he puts Hart's head between his legs and begins lifting for a potential piledriver on the concrete! Bret stops him just in time though as he breaks out and surprises Shawn with shots of his own, dazing Michaels long enough to hit a suplex that lands the both of them in the steel chairs!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Knowing that he can't win in the crowd, Bret rises to his feet and takes Shawn with him over the rail and back into the ring, much to the relief of the still buzzing officials all around them. As he tosses Michaels in the ring however, he's stopped by Vince McMahon, who shouts in his face about "almost ruining the main event" and "crossing the line and possibly injuring Shawn!" All this does however is get Vince a shot to the face from Bret, who looks down at the fallen announcer as he climbs into the ring...and straight into a forearm smash by Michaels!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Shawn takes full control of the match from there, focusing his offense on Bret's leg as he seeks to take out the chances of the legendary Sharpshooter! From slamming down on it with elbows and stomps, to a even a top-rope elbow drop on the leg as its perched onto the ropes, Shawn wants Bret's leg out of the picture. Something he decides to accomplish an even harder way as he locks Bret into a Figure-Four Leglock! Grabbing the ropes for leverage, Shawn forces Bret to cry out in agony as the combined pain gets to him, but with the heart of Canada cheering him on he resists tapping out!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Eventually Bret gets his second wind, forcing a nail-biting back and forth as he struggles to turn Shawn over, the roaring support from his people bolstering his efforts until he finally gets the reversal! For minutes Shawn gets a taste of his own medicine, screaming in pain but refusing to hold on as he struggles to reach the ropes to escape! He does eventually, using the ropes as support to pull away from Bret, leaving both men exhausted and hurting on the mat!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Slowly they both end up rising to their feet at the same time, but Shawn had been playing possum to how much he had left in order to keep Bret' guard down as he strikes out with a Superkick that leaves them both fallen once more! This time around Shawn kips up his way back to his feet, limping over to the flag Bret brought to the ring before breaking the pole that held it high to a new wave of boos. Proud of himself and wanting to add further insult, Shawn goes over to Bret's legs and begins the process of setting him up for his own submission!</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> As Shawn gets it locked in and Bret's screams of pain begin, a recovered Vince McMahon is heard shouting at referee Hebner "NOW! NOW DAMNIT NOW!" The orders prompting Hebner to shout to the timekeeper to ring the bell....but before he can....the bell is ripped away from his hands by a man from the crowd.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><span>http://i.imgur.com/z0L6fKU.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With the World Heavyweight Championship in one hand, and the bell in his other, nobody seems to know how to react to the return of Randy Savage to the WWF...nobody that is...except for Vince McMahon.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> With rage clear on his face and spit flying from his mouth, Vince begins shouting at Randy, questioning what the hell he thinks he's doing as Savage stares at him with just a simple look of disdain. Confused by the lack of ringing throughout the stadium and seeing everybody staring elsewhere, Shawn lets go of the hold on Hart's legs and climbs the turnbuckle to see over the swarm of humanity and sees Savage and McMahon. Furious at seeing Randy hold "his" belt, Shawn begins hurling abuse at the returned "Macho Man" before being pulled back and out of the ring by Rick Rude, the enforcer telling Shawn that it was "time to go." The duo narrowly avoiding a fight as the Hart Foundation rushed out to flood the ring and check on Bret, the champion himself using the ropes to stand as he stared in confusion at what was going on.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> It's at this point Vince notices that he is alone and in between a stoic but obviously restrained Randy Savage, and a confused clan of Harts. Ignoring Bret's questions of "What the hell is going on?", Vince makes a quick exit to the back, giving one final turn to the ring as he reaches the curtain to see Savage still staring at him, and the face on Bret Hart slowly turning into one of fury as he begins to realize what had just happened. With a final order given to "end the show," the commentators awkwardly rush to bid their goodbyes and repeat their confusions as the final scene is shown. A tense staredown between Vince McMahon, Bret Hart, and Randy Savage.</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Attendance:</strong></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> 25,000 - </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>SOLD OUT</strong></div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Location:</strong></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Molson Stadium - Montreal (Quebec, Canada)</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>PPV Buy Rate:</strong></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> 1.63</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><strong>Final Grade:</strong></div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><span style="color:#00FF00;">B+</span></div></div></div></div></div></blockquote>

Filled with competitors such as Curt Hennig, Sting, Scott Hall, Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Lex Luger, Diamond Dallas Page and Kevin Nash; it was a surprising night as not only did Sting make his in-ring return earlier than expected, he actually won the tournament by beating his expected Starrcade opponent, Hollywood Hulk Hogan in the finals to earn a title shot. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> In an interesting way to tease dissension in the nWo, Hogan was booked to face Hall in the quarter-finals and Nash in the semi-finals, only for the New World Order to pull their usual tricks as both men laid down for a fresh Hogan to face Sting in the main event. While it seems like the company pulled the trigger on the Sting/Hogan match a month before expectations, there are reports that a rematch is intended for Starrcade with a stipulation to boost attention to the bout. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Unfortunately for WCW, even this sudden twist in plans wasn't enough to put them ahead of the WWF's pay-per-view buy rate, the quality of the show and controversy surrounding Survivor Series leading to a final showdown of 0.96 vs 1.63 in favor of the WWF.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote><p> </p><blockquote data-ipsquote="" class="ipsQuote" data-ipsquote-contentapp="forums" data-ipsquote-contenttype="forums" data-ipsquote-contentid="44025" data-ipsquote-contentclass="forums_Topic"><div><p></p></div><div style="text-align:center;"><span>http://i.imgur.com/0iPZPFA.jpg</span><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> The biggest story coming out of this Sunday is surprisingly not WCW and WWF's respective pay-per-views going head to head, but rather the controversy and questions surrounding the WWF's Survivor Series main event of Bret Hart versus Shawn Michaels for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship. According to sources within the company, less than eight people apparently knew of the plans for the match and just how chaotic it would, something which has left the locker room and offices in chaos as nobody is quite sure on who to trust about what is and isn't real right now.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Now it's been known for the last few weeks that Vince McMahon had gotten desperate for a solution for the Bret/Shawn match that would appease both men's egos and demands. The recent rumor of information to that however, is that right up to the day of Survivor Series, the most likely plan was to actually double cross Bret in the main event due to the fear that he would take the WWF title with him to WCW. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> At the moment it isn't exactly known what in the match was planned, improvised or just done out of someone else doing business on their own. Unsurprisingly, the Federation has refused to make any statements, the company reportedly trying to put out the fires from within as people within the offices and the locker room are in an uproar at the idea that Vince McMahon tried to legitimately screw over Bret Hart. Many see it as punishment for Bret not laying down for Shawn, and are reportedly worried that their own careers might be next.</div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Bret Hart and the rest of the Hart family have so far also refused to make any comments on the incident. Several reports coming out recently that the punch to Vince was real and that emotions are at an all-time high between the two as Hart has refused any and all communications with Vince despite his best efforts. There are also reports of Bret tearing up parts of the ring set after the match, as well as tossing cameras and other Federation property around while swearing at various officials. After several minutes, Bret's rampage finally ended with him saying goodbye to the crowd and writing out "W C W" in the air before heading to the back with a look of fury, the level of emotion coming from Bret Hart adding to the mystery of what was and what wasn't real last night. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> Also refusing to make comment is Shawn Michaels and the rest of Degeneration X, and referee Earl Hebner who are all unknown in regards to their status of being in or out of the plans last night. </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> </div></div></div></div><p></p><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"><div style="margin-left:25px;"> The only known fact to report in the aftermath is that yes, Randy Savage is once again an official member of the WWF roster. According to a memo released by the company, Randy had been signed just three weeks ago after he activated a clause in his WCW contract that would allow him to walk out at the cost of some of his guaranteed money. It isn't known just yet why Randy decided to activate this clause or if his part in last night's events was planned or not, but it is believed that he will explain it sometime on RAW in the coming weeks.</div></div></div></div></div><div></div></blockquote>

The entire locker room is looking for answers, but with no sign of the World Heavyweight champion or Vince McMahon nobody knows who to to ask for the truth. The only person involved in last night's incident that is willing to talk appears to be Shawn Michaels, the leader of Degeneration X promising to open the show with a break in his silence and make his

Sorry it's been a while with just silence on my end for most things, but to just get this out of the way, no my AWF diary is not dead. It seems to have some sort of an audience and I still have ideas for it, so I'll keep pushing that but for now I'm wanting to get deeper in this one first. I've got a sort of schedule worked out for this to get some momentum going before semester begins again.

 

Secondly, I want to say thanks to everybody whose predicted so far. I'm glad you guys have an interest in this and hope to keep up at it as this is something I've toyed with even from TEW 2013. For now however, I just want to make clear that there isn't a prediction contest until December begins for anybody who likes those sorts of things.

I was being cheeky when making it for that kind of reaction lol. I'm glad ya liked the show however and can't wait to bring you and the others along for the rest of the ride. I've got plans through Summerslam, so we've got a good ways to go here for things.

RAW is WAR #001

The show starts with the opening sounds of the Degeneration X theme, the Canadian crowd welcoming the group with a mix of cheers and boos as nobody is really sure how to react after last night. Shawn's own behavior is different as well, his usual showboating much more toned down and his normal cocky smile replaced with an unusually stern look. Once in-ring the more serious demeanor is even more noticeable as the rest of DX stand behind Shawn in quiet unity as their leader gets a mic from one of the technicians.

 

"Survivor Series 1997...everybody is talking it. How out of nowhere Vince McMahon came out and nearly screwed Bret Hart out of the World Heavyweight Championship...but everybody has apparently forgotten the most important detail about last night, and that is how Shawn. Michaels. Got. SCREWED!

 

Ignoring the crowd's negative response to his statement, Shawn continues by saying that he doesn't care about McMahon's reasons for what he tried to do, he also doesn't care about Bret "Crybaby" Hart running home to Canada, and he most certainly doesn't care about the return of Randy Savage to the WWF. All Shawn cares about is getting the title that should have been his the moment he locked Bret Hart in the Sharpshooter. He didn't need Vince McMahon to make Hart submit...just ten more seconds. So as far as Shawn is concerned, with Bret out of the picture the WWF should just hand over the title to him!

 

http://i.imgur.com/QXe6C7U.jpg

 

It's at this point that Commissioner Slaughter makes his way out to the ring to address Shawn's rant, the usually anti-DX official starting off by surprisingly agreeing with Shawn! He says that last night Shawn and Bret put on one hell of a match that truly could have gone either way, and it's certainly not fair to either Bret, Shawn, or the WWF fans that there wasn't a definitive ending. Unfortunately for Shawn, until further notice the WWF World Heavyweight Championship is still Bret Hart's! Adding on to that, the position of Number One Contender is currently taken by someone else who did pin Bret in the weeks leading up to the Survivor Series!

 

Sensing that he's getting a "no" filled with explanations and excuses, Shawn interrupts Slaughter by demanding a match with the Number One Contender, regardless of who it is! The Commissioner takes the interruption well, nodding as if he expected Shawn to do this before saying that if that's the case, Shawn Michaels will go one on one tonight against the current Number One Contender...Ken Shamrock!

 

http://i.imgur.com/151XlId.jpg

 

As if on cue the theme of Ken Shamrock begins playing throughout the arena, the man himself making a slow walk out to the stage with a look of total determination on his face. Shawn is taken aback at first at seeing who he has to go through, but as he remembers the presence of DX he begins to flash that cocky smile as he stares down with Shamrock to end the segment.

TAKA Michinoku VS Scott Taylor

 

After being denied proper payback against Brian Christopher last night, TAKA goes for the next best thing as he takes on Scott Taylor in the first of the Light Heavyweight Tournament matches. Taylor's also out for some payback of his own in this match, Scott apparently not very happy at TAKA making him the first elimination of the entire 1997 Survivor Series, let alone in their match. In fact, Scott is so focused on righting his elimination that he even comes out to the ring alone!

 

Unfortunately for Taylor, it probably would've helped him so much more against TAKA if he had at least the Honky Tonk Man to play a supportive song or two as the Japanese flier schools Scott in aerial assaults. Scott tries to pull out a dirty trick or two, but he's not able to time them as well as Brian can, leading to TAKA's first step to payback with his Michinoku Driver II laying Scott out for the pinfall.

Things go to a backstage view as Bob Holly makes his way through the arena for his match up next. As he's about to reach Gorilla however, he's stopped by the Honky Tonk Man and Brian Christopher. Without even a hello, Brian gives orders for Holly to run in and bash TAKA around a bit so he and Honky can run in after to keep him out of the tournament for good! Unfortunately for Brian, Holly responds with a stern no.

 

When asked why, Holly tells both men that he only joined them for Survivor Series to get a chance to show off he's nobody's joke anymore. Now that Survivor Series is over, he's going to continue his goal by tearing through the Light Heavyweight Division and become the first ever Light Heavyweight Champion! So Brian can do his own dirty work, and if he tries to do some of it on Bob...well then maybe it'll be Brian taken out of the tournament instead of TAKA.

Bob Holly VS Lizmark Jr.

 

Bob Holly's change of attitude has seen him go from a plucky race car driver to a no-nonsense roughneck with a chip on his shoulder, and credit to Holly for backing it all up. Tonight he goes against one of the men who he put down to showcase his attitude last night in Lizmark Jr, the young luchador having made his debut just a week ago on the RAW before Survivor Series at the invitation of fellow WWF luchador Aguila.

 

Lizmark spends the match fighting hard and fighting as fast as he can, but Holly's hit and moves continuously take the wind out of his breath and stop most chances at recovery. After a picture perfect Alabama Slam in the middle of the ring, Holly lifts up a dazed Lizmark, ordering him to "Fight back!" When his opponent just struggles to stay upright however, Holly brings him back down for the end after a second Alabama Slam.

It's interview time with Michael Cole, who introduces his guests, the victors of last night's 5 on 5 elimination match...the Nation of Domination! Starting with questions about their matches tonight, Cole tries to find out what Rikishi thinks about facing Steve Austin as well as the Nation's gameplan for the Battle Royal. Surprisingly Rikishi gives up the chance to speak, instead looking to his right to give the chance to someone else...that someone not being the leader of the Nation Farooq, but instead his cousin and last night's Sole Survivor, The Rock.

 

"First things first Marshall Cole, you don't speak to Rikishi. Nobody who is a WWF suit or stooge gets to speak to big Rikishi because for years this company has always made him walk and talk like they want. Under the freedom of the Nation however, Rikishi is now able to be the man he has always wanted to be...a proud representative of his Samoan heritage. A heritage he is going to show Steve Austin the hard way as he softens him up for your future Intercontinental Champion...The Rock!"

 

Faarooq rips the mic away from Rocky at this point, questioning who the hell he thinks he is for assuming he's going to be winning the battle royal when there's other members of the Nation involved. Upon seeing how pissed Faarooq is, the Rock apologizes, explaining that he got a bit ahead of himself due to the excitement of being the Sole Survivor last night. While still a bit angry, Faarooq accepts his explanation and reminds him and the rest of the Nation that they all have a role to play in their unit...and to not forget it when the time comes.

As we return to the ring Dude Love makes his entrance for his upcoming match with Jeff Jarrett, the announcers discussing this rematch as Dude makes his way into the ring. After Dude enters the ring a few minutes pass, with both Dude and commentary confused as there's no sign of Jeff Jarrett coming out...that is until the TitanTron lights up with a familiar pair of faces on it.

 

http://i.imgur.com/G5HYq7V.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/EbeVm4i.jpg

 

With the feed apparently coming from their own locker room somewhere backstage, Jeff Jarrett smirks wide in the background as Jim Cornette does all the talking. The loudmouth manager explaining to Dude that the reason neither of them are out there is due to the fact that quite frankly...Dude isn't worth Double J's time. He's common New York street trash that merely caught Jarrett at a bad time last night, but thankfully it won't happen again. However...since their match was scheduled and advertised by the WWF, he had to find a replacement for Double J...someone far less concerned about who they had as an opponent.

The arena glows with a dark, red tinge as Kane and Paul Bearer make their way out and down the ramp, Dude seeming much less playful and much more focused as he realizes how seriously things have changed....

Dude Love VS Kane w/Paul Bearer

 

The moment the bell rings Dude is out of his corner and charging towards Kane but a big red boot sends him right down on his back hard! From there it's Dude at Kane's mercy, the monster tossing his victim from corner to corner before laying into him with heavy strikes and chokes. During one of these corner attacks Kane decides to add to his arsenal a bit, whipping Dude into the ropes and awaiting his return...only to get a sudden DDT that brings them both down!

 

Kane is quick to get up, but thankfully for Dude he's close enough to the ropes to roll out and buy some recovery time of his own, and just in time too as Kane wastes little time in joining him outside the ring! Dude unleashes a flurry of strikes to daze Kane as he gets to the floor, but Kane withstands the assault and stops it by whipping Dude into the steel steeps side first! The commentators hypothesize that Dude is going to need some heavy impact to keep Kane down long enough to survive, and he gets it as he catches Kane mid charge to lift and drop him face first on the same steel steps!

 

With a sense of urgency not usually seen in the Dude Love persona, Dude rushes to the timekeeper's area and grabs himself a steel chair before returning to Kane with a shot to the face! It definitely gets Kane dazed, but the referee isn't having it as he calls for the bell!

 

 

Winner:
Kane by Disqualification

Time Length:
7:33

Finish:
Chair shot by Dude Love to Kane

Grade:
B

 

 

While he may have cost himself the match, Dude knows he has a good chance here to stall Kane's rampage through the company and fires away another chair shot to keep the big monster dazed! He aims and readies a third shot, but Paul Bearer grabs the chair from behind while shrieking at Dude to stop! Love easily pulls his weapon away from Bearer's hands and swings for his third shot, but Kane is ready for it as a big boot smashes it into Dude's own face!

 

Disheveled and angry, Paul screams for Kane to make an example of Dude right there on the floor and orders him to rip up the mats! Following his manager's orders, Kane lifts the mat up and reveals the concrete underneath much to the disgust of Jim Ross on commentary as he knows what's about to happen. With the crowd booing what's to come and Bearer laughing in sick glee, Kane gets Dude Love in position for the Tombstone Piledriver above the concrete...only for the lights to go off....

 

...and return to the sight of Dude Love out of Kane's arms and laying in the middle of the stage, a swarm of officials rushing out to help him to the back quickly! They didn't have to worry much however, as Kane has lost all interest in decimating Dude Love further...and was more focused on the man inside the ring instead.

 

http://i.imgur.com/WdslnOa.jpg

 

In silence both Kane and the Undertaker stare each other down, with Paul Bearer crooning all the while for Taker to answer his brother....something that wasn't going to happen tonight as the lights went off and came back on once more...the Undertaker gone as sudden as he came.

Michael Cole is interviewing a stable in the back once again, only this time it's the pack of degenerates known as DX making fun of his haircut in their locker room. Interrupting their jokes, Cole asks if Shawn regrets demanding for a match with Shamrock so suddenly, adding a questioning statement in there about Shawn's mental state maybe being a bit chaotic due to the events of last night. The statement stops whatever crass joke Michaels had as his smile turns into a grimace, the rest of DX looking as if they're going to make Cole pay for what he said before Shawn answers.

 

"That's what it's all about isn't it? How many times do I have to tell you and all the other idiots in this company that I. Don't. Know. Anything! Maybe I was caught in the crossfire of a plan to kick Bret out of the WWF! Maybe I was the target all along because this company can't stand me! Whatever it was, I don't care! The most important thing to HBK right now is getting back MY World Heavyweight Championship and if I gotta beat up Ken Shamrock and have him follow Bret Hart out of the WWF to win it back, then so be it!"

 

With his piece said, Shawn slumps down in his chair in an exaggerated display of being exhausted, Chyna pantomiming a massage for the "worn" leader of DX. Cole meanwhile gets escorted out by Rick Rude and Triple H, Rude reminding Cole and the WWF that if they aren't down with HBK's destiny to reclaim his World Heavyweight Championship then DX has a two worded official statement for them....a statement Triple H is more than happy to say as he shoves Cole and the cameras out of their locker room with a cheeky "Suck it!"

Double Elimination by The Rock after a Flapjack lift to Marc Mero

Final Four:

Vader VS The Rock VS Marc Mero VS Faarooq

 

What began as fifteen men was quick to fall apart to four over the course of twelve minutes as the Nation took charge and went hard at everybody that wasn't them! D'Lo and Kama rushed Vader to keep him busy as Faarooq went on a spree of eliminations, taking out all of the members of the DOA with the help of the Rock as he watched the leader of the Nation's back.

 

Ahmed meanwhile dealt with Marc Mero on the outside of the ring, the "Marvelous One's" attempt at staying on the outside ending abruptly when Johnson noticed him hiding next to Sable. Around the ring the two of them went in a close chase, but when Ahmed followed Mero in-ring he was caught and put down for the second time in two-nights with a Rock Bottom! With Johnson properly dazed Rocky wastes no time in tossing him out the ring, causing him to miss Faarooq nearly getting eliminated by the Headbangers after sending out the Blackjacks as the Rock celebrates Ahmed's elimination!

 

Noticing his leader's plight in the middle of his celebration, Rocky is quick to help Faarooq out and assist in sending over Mosh and Thrasher...only to get chewed out by Faarooq for almost being too late! As the two get into their argument they miss Vader eliminating D'Lo and Kama, the Rocky Mountain Monster wasting little time before charging towards the two men! With both arms extended Vader's charge connects, sending both men over the top ropes and clinging to the bottom ones in desperation!

 

Vader pumps up the crowd as he waits for both men to get into position for a final charge, the Rock and Faarooq barely able to make to their feet before Vader starts running! As impact is about to be made however, the two remaining Nation members duck the arms and tackle Vader in the midsection before using the moment to grab hold of his head and pull down the ropes in a struggle to get him over! For a few seconds the power struggle keeps the crowd in anticipation, but all of Vader's efforts end up coming to an end as Mero returns to the ring to give the final lift and push from behind!

 

With Vader eliminated and what's left of the Nation recovering, Mero begins celebrating as if he didn't just spent most of the battle royal hiding from the other competitors which leaves his wife Sable less than impressed on the outside. This also leaves Mero unaware of the Rock rolling under the bottom rope and coming back to his feet slightly dazed. It takes a few seconds and a shout from Sable, but Mero finally notices and when he does he goes at Rocky with a clothesline....only to be lifted by his legs and onto the ropes, causing him to bounce and knock off Faarooq on his way down!

As the bell rings a very confused Rock looks around the ring for answers as to how Faarooq got eliminated, only for Faarooq himself to storm back into the ring and angrily inform Rocky how it happened in the first place! Surprised at what happened, the Rock tries to explain things as just Faarooq being at the wrong place at the wrong time and to "watch himself" next time. All this does however, is make Faarooq even angrier and prompt him to call the Rock selfish before storming off to the back to join the other members of the Nation.

As Faarooq makes his way out of the area, the Rock tries calling to get him to return. After seconds pass with him not coming back, the Rock decides to go find him himself, running into Rikishi as he comes out for his match. The two Samoans have a quick conversation that seems to end when Rikishi motions for his cousin to go to the back and try to smooth things out. Nodding with a smile, The Rock makes his way to the curtain and proceeds to make his exit.....

 

 

Only to get tossed back out face first by the man making his way out from behind him.

Seeing that the Rock needed his help, Rikishi rushes out the ring just as Austin hits the Stunner on his brand new contender, giving him plenty of time to meet Rikishi in the middle of the ramp for the start of a brawl! As the two men trade shots we're sent to commerical by JR and Lawler as they promise order upon RAW's return!

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin VS Rikishi

 

When RAW returns we're back in the ring as referees have managed to get both Austin and Rikishi inside and at their respective corners for the bell to ring. As it sounds Austin is right on the offensive, bringing down Rikishi with a sudden Lou Thesz Press while wailing away! When he picks the big man up however, he's taken down with a sudden Savate Kick that brings Rikishi back in the game as he takes his turn to pound away at Austin!

 

After a few minutes of back and forth Austin is in the driver's seat as he tosses Rikishi into a corner to let loose his flurry of stomps, but before he can give a final strike he's preoccupied by the presence of the Rock on the apron! The Rock hurls insults at Austin out of anger at the earlier assault, causing Steve to pull him in for some more stomping! It's in the middle of this that Rikishi manages to recover and rise however, the big Samoan looking to save his cousin with a second Savate Kick to Austin....but hits Rocky instead as Steve ducks at the last second!

 

With Rikishi stunned at his own actions, Austin takes advantage of the moment as he turns him around and plants a foot to his gut before bringing Rikishi down with a Stunner! He's not done there however as Austin picks the big Samoan back to his feet before helping him back down with a second Stunner! With both Rocky and Rikishi down and out, Austin makes the full cover as JR comments on Austin coming and going through them both with all the momentum of a runaway train!

Cole is doing his job once more, this time with a man thankfully much less likely to make fun of his haircut...but all the more likely to choke him if he doesn't like it, it's Ken Shamrock! With his match against HBK just minutes away, Shamrock is showing signs of intensity as he psyches himself up for the bout ahead...something that has Cole a bit nervous as he asks Shamrock his gameplan for tonight.

 

With a stern, slower speed of speech than usual, Shamrock tells Cole that Shawn Michaels and DX no doubt have a trick or two ready to help Shawn win tonight...but Shamrock isn't just an ordinary competitor waiting for that to happen. He's the World's Most Dangerous Man, a title given because of his ferocity and talent in fighting. So if DX want to make some plans they better hope they pull them off fast, because the longer the match goes...the better chance there is of Ken snapping Shawn's ankle in half!

The Legion of Doom VS The Godwinns

 

This is a match born from a brawl that took both teams out of their match during Survivor Series last night, and while WWF officials managed to stop their brawl then, they're still game to continue once the bell rings. At the start of the bout it's the Godwinns surprisingly in control, both men fighting a with fire lit underneath as they're no doubt riding the high of being a team that went toe to toe with the legendary LOD. The Legion keep up with their extraordinary knowledge and experience in tag team wrestling, but as the Godwinns cut the ring in half it stops their full chemistry from being put to use.

 

That being said, one member of the Legion of Doom is just as dangerous a force as two can be. A fact that Animal quickly proves as he battles back both Henry and Phineas in their corner with his tenacity and power! From there it's a showcase for the LOD as they give Canada a show of some of their classic offense that they missed last night. Capping it all off with the always loved Doomsday Device on the HOG for the victory and payback!

The nostalgia pop continues for the Legion of Doom as they pose for the crowd following their victory, the Canadian fans still in love with the LOD even with their feelings towards the company as a whole in turmoil. Unfortunately for Hawk and Animal, their enjoyment is cut short as the theme of their next challengers begins to play.

 

http://i.imgur.com/4H9dia1.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/BP1p7Cr.jpg

 

The New Age Outlaws come out sarcastically clapping along with the crowd, Road Dogg quick to lay it on with further sarcasm as he congratulates the Legion on another "hard fought victory!" He then switches gears to a cockier tone, telling the LOD to enjoy their last few ovations as a legendary tag team because in just a week's time the Outlaws are going to take those titles and render the Legion antiquated!

 

Through this taunting the LOD stand tall upon the turnbuckles and talk trash back to their arrogant challengers, neither man paying attention to behind them as their previous opponents begin to rise...

 

http://i.imgur.com/7QC3WVl.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/mfuHxG7.jpg

 

After a quick nod to each other in understanding, both of the Godwinns charge at the Legion and strike them from behind! It rocks both Hawk and Animal, allowing the Godwinns to pull them off the turnbuckles, but the moment their feet hit the mat is the same moment they turn the tables as the Legion is on their bitter opponents in an instant! The Legion then throw out Henry and Phineas, making sure they stay down this time as they pose once more with a pair of disappointed Outlaws looking on!

"The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock VS "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels

 

Things before the match feel off for everybody involved, as DX not only comes out without their usual enforcer Rick Rude, they go to the commentary table where Triple H joins JR and Lawler with a headset of his own. When questioned why commentary and where Rude is, HHH answers by saying that Shawn told them all he could beat Shamrock alone, so Rude is in the back to tape the match while HHH and Chyna watch it from the best seats in the house! This baffles both JR and the King as they're not sure whether that's a legitimate example of arrogance from Shawn or just HHH lying through his teeth.

 

Whatever the case is with that, it becomes clear in the early minutes of the bout that help might have been a good thing for Shawn as Shamrock starts things off in total control of HBK. With hard hitting suplexes and sudden forearms that either stop Shawn's offense or keeps him from recovering, Shamrock is obviously in the zone and a roar from the man himself gives the crowd full notice of it! That is until he's put down with a sudden Superkick by Shawn that comes out of nowhere!

 

Shaking his head as he gathers himself, Shawn kips up with his usual cocky smile...only to turn into a seething Ken Shamrock who is back up and once again on Michaels with the strikes! Shamrock is hungry for gold, and as he keeps on putting Michaels through hell he shows he'll go through absolutely anybody to get it! But Shawn is always able to pull out surprises and a quick suplex reversal turns into a Superkick party as he finally lays out Shamrock with a sudden shot followed by an elbow drop that only gets him a close two!

 

It's at this point that HHH leaves the commentary table and makes his way to ringside, standing on the apron to trash talk the fallen but slowly recovering Shamrock...referee Hebner not seeing Chyna hand Shawn the European title on the other side! With a smirk full on his face, Shawn swings at Shamrock...only for him to duck and hit a German Suplex from behind! Seeing the plan has fail then causes HHH to try his own shot on Shamrock, the former blueblood running into the ring and aiming at Ken with a lariat but gets just Hebner instead after a quick dodge by Ken!

 

Surprised at who he hit, HHH is left wide open for a Belly-to-Belly suplex from Shamrock, the fighter relentless as he screams in fury before locking HHH in for a vicious Ankle Lock! Seconds pass for HHH in agony, but it's all stopped thanks to the forgotten Chyna after a low blow to Shamrock from behind! With Ken's momentum stopped dead and the referee down and out for who knows how long, Shamrock is left to the mercy of a pissed off DX. Michaels leading a beatdown with Chyna and HHH after he recovers, the commentary team wondering where the hell the rest of the officials were at as RAW comes to a close. The final shot being a very satisfied DX each getting their shots in as JR calls for help before being told to inform the audience to stay tuned for a very sudden special announcement.

 

 

[Grade: A*]
http://i.imgur.com/GKvnEOj.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/o8pkgtC.jpg

 

The announcement begins more like a regular recap video you'd see to convince people to order the pay-per-view replay, showing clips of Bret versus Shawn from last night with selected audio clips from commentary adding to the overall drama. Things get even more interesting however....when it shows both the controversy and the aftermath of Bret's rampage after the cameras stopped showing the event, every single angry word uttered by Bret very audible through the clip. After a final shot on Bret's look of absolute fury before he he heads to the back, the video changes to show the office of a man who is arguably the most hated in the entire company.

From what looks to be his own office in Titan Towers in Stamford, Connecticut, Vince McMahon apologizes to the crowd for what happened during Survivor Series and the resulting silence afterward that no doubt only fueled rumors and hysteria. He says that the World Wrestling Federation does not want to keep secrets as big and as public as this from their fans, and after days of trying to put out fires, worries and emergencies, he feels that it is the time to give the public an explanation. He says that next week he will come out to the audience and explain to them exactly what is going on...and what it means for the future of the WWF.

Final Grade: C+

 

-Shotgun Saturday Night begins with the aftermath of RAW is WAR, showing DX continuing their assault on Shamrock after the cameras stopped rolling. Commentary discusses over the clips about why it took so long for officials to finally come and stop DX, with Michael Cole informing the audience of a rumor that Rick Rude was actually waiting in the back to stop any and all officials from trying to help Ken!
[Grade: A]

 

-In a preview before their own respective tournament matches next week, Aguila took CIMA out of the sky with an impressive Moonsault in 8:33.
[Grade: D]

 

-The Rock & Rikishi are out by commentary to talk to Cole and Kelly about what's going on with the Rock & the Nation. Rock ignores their questions however and instead rants about Austin, prompting Faarooq to arrive and congratulate Rocky for learning humility. He asks if Rock is now ready to remember his role and beat Austin down for good, leading to a very tense stare down as everybody waits for an answer. In the end Rocky nods his head and the two shake hands.
[Grade: C]

 

-With a camera of a much lower quality than that of the WWF's, The Jackal reveals where he has been for the last few weeks by calling his absence a journey of self-discovery. He claims it is his destiny to bring a stranger world to the WWF...to bring outcasts from all over and unite them under one roof...and he has already begun. From out of the darkness behind him comes the massive form of Kurrgan, a smaller man coming in from the right, a man the Jackal introduces as his "Fallen Angel."
[Grade: D]

 

-Chainz puts down young rookie Ron Killings with a vicious Big Boot in 5:21.
[Grade: D]

-The Headbangers put their experience and chemistry to good work as they took out Canadian natives Adam Copleland and Christian Cage in 6:45 after a Mosh Pit!
[Grade: C-]

 

-Marlena tries her hand at interview now that her man Goldust is out on the "injury" list, but unfortunately her first interview with with Ahmed Johnson. True to form, Johnson just screams into the mic with little to no coherence...thankfully Marlena clarifies for him that Mero may have hid from Ahmed during RAW, but he can't next week!
[Grade: C-]

 

-Looking to bounce back after their loss to the Legion of Doom in both their match and after it, the Godwinns work hard to overcome the New Blackjacks in 8:43 after a Slop Drop onto Bradshaw!
[Grade: D+]

<p>24 Hour Warning/Prediction Contest</p><p> </p><p>

Hey all, sorry this has taken a while, work needed me to pick up more hours so I've barely been at my computer lately. Thankfully things have slowed down some so I've been able to finish both RAW, Shotgun Saturday Night and even the beginnings of IYH. However this is mainly a <strong>24 Hour Prediction Warning</strong> as I forgot to mention in my last post that since we are in December in-game, the prediction contest to go along with this diary will now begin. It's going to go from December to January, and end officially at the Royal Rumble, with the prize being that the winner will get to decide what I do with Mike Tyson at Wrestlemania as well as maybe a match or two. Specifics of that will be given at a later date, so for now get in those final predictions and I'll see you all tomorrow.</p>

RAW begins with Steve Austin being filmed as he enters the building, Austin already in the middle of the rant about the Nation's problems as he says that whether they kiss and makeup or not doesn't mean a damn thing to him. All that matters is how many men they're going to send to get their asses whipped by Stone Cold when the time comes this Sunday at the In Your House pay-per-view! Before Austin can continue his trash talk however, he's jumped from behind by the number one contender and his cousin; the two soon joined by the rest of the Nation as they start a five on one assault on the Intercontinental Champion!

For a few seconds Austin does his best to throw his own punches and kicks to fight back, but the numbers difference is too much for even Stone Cold to handle as the Nation beat on him for minutes that seem like hours. After a hard toss into a nearby wall the Nation are finally satisfied, patting each other on the back and giving their own trash talk as they leave a crumpled Austin behind. JR on commentary commentating that it looks like the Nation are stronger than ever!

Funky Flash Splash by Flash Funk on CIMA

Flash Funk VS CIMA

 

Unlike some of the other matches in the tournament so far, this one was a pretty even match as both men took to the sky and battle with the same Japanese Junior style. The differences came in their attitudes behind the offense, as Funk went for more crowd pleasing taunts and moves to rally some support behind his offense. CIMA on the other hand couldn't care less about his reaction from the fans, the young Japanese flier instead seeking to redeem his loss from Survivor Series as he dished out stiff strikes to Funk.

 

In the end it's experience that decides the winner here, as a final chain between the two sees Funk bait CIMA in for an easy strike before dodging it and hitting a Double Underhook Suplex in the middle of the ring! With CIMA dazed from impact Funk takes to the sky, climbing the turnbuckle before heading back down on his opponent with the Funky Flash Splash!

Backstage we're with Michael Cole and his guests for the time being in the Legion of Doom, with Cole asking how they feel about the cocky attitude shared by their number one contenders just days away from their clash at In Your House. Before either Animal or Hawk could answer however, they're interrupted by the booming and usually angry voice of Faarooq as he and the Nation enter the shot.

 

 

 

http://i.imgur.com/GbD2jeY.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/LSJkkhu.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/FFa6Xpf.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/tNLDZac.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/bksHBGE.jpg

 

"Well now...ain't this a damn typical sight! The Nation of Domination open the show with proof of their power...and all the WWF can do is ask these has beens about their punk ass opponents. You know what I think? Those two boys running their mouths know what everybody else is starting to figure out about the Legion of Doom...that they ain't as big and bad as they used to be."

 

This sets the Legion off, leading to a very ticked off Hawk laying down a challenge for any two Nation members tonight to try to prove Faarooq right! Instead of getting even angrier however, Faarooq shoots him smug look and begins giving an answer that sounds like "You ain't the boss of us." Only for the young Rocky on his right to interrupt and give a quick "You're on!" before he's even two words in!

 

Satisfied at getting themselves a fight for tonight, the Legion nod at the Nation before walking away with Michael Cole following after for safety as the rest of the Nation begin to leave in the other direction. As the Rock begins to follow the unit he's stopped by Faarooq, the angry leader of the Nation telling him that since he's the loudmouth that accepted the challenge, he's going to be the one going out there tonight!

Brian Christopher w/Honky Tonk Man VS Aguila

 

In a bit of a surprise for everybody, Brian and Aguila put on the best match of the tournament so far as the two men went in with something to prove about their division. While Brian isn't anybody's choice for favorite or best wrestler, he certainly proved he could have the mind for match psychology like his (not-so secret) old man as he led the young Aguila in a story based match of an exciting high flyer trying to move fast enough to avoid the tricks of the cocky cheater. Excellent selling also added to this, as Brian constantly made the impacts of Aguila's offense look great as well as his facial expressions when any of his tricks failed.

 

Eventually the story began to take a turn as Brian learned from his mistakes, the arrogant youth deciding to stop going after Aguila and instead let him come to Brian first! A solid idea if it wasn't for the fact that Aguila kept catching Christopher with his moves. After a sudden hurricanrana Brian is flat on his back in the middle of the ring, but a distraction by the Honky Tonk Man stops Aguila from pressing forward! Unfortunately for Aguila it's all just a ploy to give Brian time to recover, and recover he does as he catches Aguila for a roll-up when he turns back to Brian, the surprised luchador unable to kick out in time!

We get a backstage view of the Commissioner walking through the halls of the arena when he's joined by Shawn Michaels and Rick Rude, the rest of their DX members surprisingly missing as an even more surprisingly cheery Shawn greets Commissioner Slaughter with a friendly arm over the shoulder.

 

"Sarge! I heard you wanted to see me! Oh wait just turn over there first though, I don't want you to turn the sprinkler on me...anyway I've got Tri and Chyna setting up a party in the locker room right now so let's make this quick. All I need from you, are those magical words to make it official and truly special. Just say it not in my general direction look, "Shawn, you ARE the Number One Contender." Go ahead!"

 

Nodding to himself slowly during Shawn's greeting, Sarge begins to copy the words Shawn laid out for him, only to turn to HBK after "are" and follow it up with a very loud "NOT!" At first Shawn is disgusted at the spittle on his face, but that all turns into red hot fury as he registers what Slaughter just told him. Thankfully Rude decides to step in before Shawn begins ranting, reminding Sarge that the beating Shamrock took last week was more than enough to keep anybody out for weeks on end. So with the current Number Contender out of commission, it only makes sense for the next and what should've been first choice to take his place.

 

Sarge is quick to counter Rude by informing him that in case he's forgotten...Ken Shamrock isn't just anybody. In fact, not only was Shamrock back up and training just days after DX's disgusting assault, he's been dying to get back into the ring with Shawn Michaels. However, the WWF have concerns about if Shamrock is truly physically ready and have decided that he is going to have a trial match tonight...against Triple H!

 

At this point Shawn is shaking with barely restrained anger, but Sarge isn't done there as he goes on to say that if Ken successfully proves he is fit for competition, then he and Shawn Michaels will go one on one this Sunday in a No Disqualification match to finally decide just who will be the Number One Contender! Until then he doesn't want to see any sign of DX for the rest of the night until the main event, and warns that if they step out of line there will be consequences.

 

Shawn isn't able to hold back anymore and snaps at the audacity of Sarge to think he can order him around! Thankfully cooler heads prevail as Rude drags Shawn away from the Commissioner before things get worse, the echoing sounds of Shawn's ranting putting a big smile on Sarge's face.

 

 

 

Winners:
The Rock & Rikishi by Pinfall

Time Length:
9:43

Finish:
Rock Bottom by The Rock on Animal

Grade:
B-

 

 

The ringing of the bell means that it's time for two things for the Nation of Domination, the first thing being a Rock victory celebration....and the second being a four on two beatdown of the Legion of Doom as the Nation return from the back.

 

After Rikishi drags Animal out of the ring and to the floor to join his partner, the Rock begins his personal celebration, the former blue chipper posing on the turnbuckle as he talks trash to fans in the audience. Unfortunately for the Rock his celebrations don't last long as he's joined from behind by the last man he wants to see.

 

http://i.imgur.com/sUPVxgO.jpg

 

With fury in his eyes Stone Cold rips the Rock off from the top of the turnbuckle, the number one contender barely getting a chance to react before he's hit with a swift kick to the gut and brought crashing down with a Stunner! Upon the pop of the crowd the Nation take notice of their fallen brother with a trash talking redneck above him, the group quick to rush in to try to grab Austin for his second beating of the night, but it's too late as he escapes back the way he came through the crowd!

 

With the rest of the Nation checking in on the Rock, Faarooq keeps his eye on the departing Stone Cold, shouting insults and threats as the Intercontinental Champion poses on top of some arena stairs and flips the double bird!

The Rock & Rikishi w/The Nation VS The Legion of Doom

 

While Faarooq might be angry at the Rock tonight, he isn't leaving him and Rikishi to fend for themselves this time around as the Nation take up positions around the ring. Unfortunately for the Rock and Rikishi, LOD are far from intimidated by the display of numbers. If anything, it seems to tick them off even more as the two waste no time in turning their match in a rough brawl with their less experienced opponents.

 

Fortunately for the Rock, the Nation keep a strong front around the ring with Faarooq barking orders to D'Lo and Kama for interference. From grabbing the ankle of Animal to trip him up to distracting the referee to allow Rikishi and the Rock to prolong a beatdown in the corner, the Nation are all over LOD both in the ring out. It's during one of these attempts that things take a turn however, as an attempt by Faarooq to get a shot in on Animal goes bad when he's knocked off the apron by Hawk! Faarooq loses his composure at this however and hops right back up to get in Hawk's face, prompting the referee to say enough is enough and order the Nation to go to the back!

 

Without anybody left to get in their way, the Legion waste no time in taking out all the stops as they bring a heavy impact offense to Rikishi and the Rock to make up for lost time. It comes to an abrupt halt however after a sudden appearance from the crowd by the New Age Outlaws goes from confusing to infuriating as they snatch the LOD's tag team titles! Hawk on the outside makes an attempt to go after the two thieves, but big Rikishi stops him dead in his tracks with a sudden Savate Kick! At seeing his partner go down, Animal is quick to abandon a prone Rock and begin shouting threats to Rikish and the Outlaws, the few seconds of distraction allowing the Rock to recover and get into place to catch a charging Animal with the Rock Bottom!

Things transition to the locker room area, where Dude Love is making a shushing motion to the cameraman behind him as they come up to a door labeled "Jeff Jarrett" in the middle of a sparkly star. After a few quick knocks the voice of Jim Cornette is heard through the door asking whose there, but instead of answering, Dude just knocks once more. After a third set of knocks Jimmy's famous temper is finally set off as he rips open the door with a demand to know who is knocking on his door, but before he can say anything Dude cheerfully makes his way into the locker room with the cameraman and blocks the door.

 

There's a noticeable lack of Jeff Jarrett in the room, and as both men seem to realize this, Jim begins to pale. He quickly stutters out apologies and placating words in a hope to keep Dude calm, but he needn't have bothered as Dude Love greets JC as if he didn't send a sadistic monster after him last week.

 

"Easy Jimmy easy, the Dude isn't here out of any bad blood daddy-o...he's just wanting to find a proper sort of resolution to things between himself and your main man Jeffy-J ya feel me? I mean...after all the Dude feels like he's owed a bit of proper respect after going toe to toe with that big red baddy Kane last week, so the least you and Jeffy-J could do is hear the Dude out in a little pow-wow. This Sunday, at In Your House the Dude wants a rematch with Jeff Jarrett under Falls Count Anywhere rules. The Dude admits it's not his usual style of match, but desperate times call for desperate measures baby! Now Jimmy, feel free to say no...but understand that if you deny the Dude tonight, then the Dude is done asking nice..."

 

Afraid of what would happen if he says no straight up, Jim is quick to tell Dude that he'd have to talk things over with Jeff Jarrett first before making any final decisions; so if Dude really wants a match, he's going to have to wait until Sunday for his answer. This seems to satisfy Dude Love, as he nods and tells Jim that he'll see him this Sunday and leaves the room, but not before turning around at the doorway and wishing a still nervous Cornette to "Have a nice day."

Pearl River Plunge by Ahmed Johnson on Marc Mero

Grade:

http://i.imgur.com/GfQsqB8.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/dCCsJxm.jpg

 

As the bell rings music begins to play throughout the i Wireless Center, but as the lights glow a bright red and the organ sounds it's clear that it's not Ahmed's...but instead that of Paul Bearer's monster, Kane. After a quick order from Bearer, Kane makes a direct beeline down the ramp and into the ring, Ahmed meeting him upon his entrance with a hard lariat that staggers the behemoth as Johnson shows no intentions of becoming a victim. Like a man possessed, Ahmed begins a vicious brawl with Kane, both powerhouses trading strikes with each other in an attempt to declare dominance.

 

Unfortunately for Ahmed, Kane has Paul Bearer on his side to ensure things go their way as the former funeral director interrupts an attempt at a Pearl River Plunge by hopping onto the apron to shriek at Johnson. Ahmed lets go of Kane to grab his manager, only to get grabbed himself as Kane is quick to come to Paul's aid and rock Ahmed with a hellacious Chokeslam! After a second Chokeslam to make sure Ahmed stays down, Kane is presented a steel chair by Paul to setup at his feet; the furious Bearer demanding for Kane to send a message with a Tombstone Piledriver on the steel!

 

With barely a nod Kane begins to follow orders, lifting Ahmed and positioning him above the steel below...only for the lights to go off.

 

http://i.imgur.com/ZenUrxU.jpg

 

When the lights return it is once again with the appearance of the Undertaker, Undertaker this time taking position at the top of the ramp as he gazes down at his brother and former manager in the ring. Kane is quick to abandon Ahmed, dropping his victim as he focuses all his attention at his brother in a silent stare, Paul meanwhile frothing at the mouth as he demands an answer from the Undertaker once and for all!

 

To Paul's fury however, there's again no answer from his former charge, just ominous silence that gets a sudden breaking as Ahmed pops up from behind Kane with a roar! As the crowd roars with Ahmed both Kane and Bearer turn to face their intended victim, but Johnson is too fast and furious as he sends Kane out of the ring with a hard hitting lariat! Kane manages to land on his feet, but it's clear he's dazed as he wobbles a bit before regaining his footing. Paul meanwhile rushes to his monster for safety, the man frantic as he looks between a still staring Undertaker and a pumped up Ahmed with alternating looks of hate and fear!

Ahmed Johnson VS "Marvelous" Marc Mero w/Sable

 

Marc Mero has been making himself a lot of enemies in the WWF as of late due to his habit of leaving matches, and Ahmed is the first man in line who wants to make him pay for his actions. Mero is oblivious to just how angry Ahmed is at first however, and spends more time running off his mouth at fans for trying to talk to Sable. After a few minutes of Mero repeatedly going in and out of the ropes to jaw jack at fans, Ahmed snaps and grabs Marc for a suplex that brings him into the ring!

 

From there it's Ahmed Johnson paying back Mero for the battle royal last week as he tosses the "Marvelous One" into every corner, each landing followed by an impact as he follows up with huge Running Splashes that get the crowd hyped up! Unfortunately for the crowd their hype doesn't last that long as after a series of lariats and failed comeback attempts, Mero decides he's had enough, the former boxer rolling out the ring and dazedly making his way up the ramp. Before Marc can reach the stage however, he's blocked off at the top of the ramp by another man whose had a problem with Mero's cheap tactics...Vader!

 

With a roar and flex of his immense size, Vader successfully forces Mero to return back to the ring where at least if he gets slammed there, it'll be on a mat. Ahmed is waiting however, and he pounces on Mero the moment he gets back inside, dodging a clothesline attempt and catching Marc on his attempt at a second before countering with a ring shaking Spinebuster! With Mero in a proper daze he's left entirely at Ahmed's mercy, Johnson making sure he gets proper payback as he quickly puts things to an end with the Pearl River Plunge!

It's another surprise appearance as RAW returns to the entrance of Degeneration X, the group not showing a single care as they come out with Shawn in a wheelchair despite Commissioner Slaughter's earlier warning. In fact, Shawn addresses the warning by starting off and saying that if Sarge think he can tell Degeneration X what to do, then he's severely mistaken because it's pretty damn well known that if you make the rules, then DX will break them!

 

And speaking of break...Shawn proceeds to address recent talk about Shamrock wanting to break his ankle, the ever arrogant leader of DX proceeding to boast about his intense training regiment with Chyna that has his pain tolerance at an all time high! Of course, this is all assuming Ken will even get past Triple H, something Tri is eager to call a "pipe dream" as he assures Shawn he'll make sure Sunday is just a celebration for DX, all night long!

 

Before they can get to that however, Shawn moves on to addressing the wheelchair, Michaels explaining that he's going to show the world just how ready he is for a potential match with Ken Shamrock! What follows is minutes of DX mocking Shamrock as they twist and turn an obviously fake leg, Shawn doing a great job at pretending to be in pain as DX play along with him.

 

http://i.imgur.com/zQv3g59.jpg

 

Comedy hour comes to an end for DX soon after however, as an irate Commissioner Slaughter comes out to berate the group of degenerates for disobeying his orders! Of course with DX being DX....they just laugh in his face, daring Sgt. "Slobber" to do something about it. To their surprise, he actually proceeds to do so as he calls out security to escort Rick Rude and Chyna to the locker room, leaving just a confused and angry pair of Triple HHH and Shawn Michaels.

 

Before either man can speak, Commissioner Slaughter informs both of them that due to DX not heeding his warning, a few things were going to happen right now. The first being that HHH is going to go to the commentary table and stay there until his match with Ken Shamrock begins! Secondly, Sarge informs Shawn that it has been well over thirty days since he's defended the WWF European Championship, and since he's decided to not stay in the back he is now obligated to defend it right here, right now, against this man!

The ringing of the bell brings with it the returns of Rick Rude and Chyna, the muscle for Degeneration X being followed by security as they make their way out to help their clients. Unfortunately for them, they're slowed enough by security for Vader to exit the ring and meet them at the bottom of the ramp; the new European Champion roaring and flexing as he forces them to backup.

 

iUJVu4F.jpgErKcr86.jpg

 

Meanwhile, Shamrock has just chased an exhausted Triple H into the ring after minutes of a brutal brawl between the two on the outside. Unfortunately for Ken, Triple H's weariness was nothing more than a trick as he catches the entering Shamrock with a low blow to the groin that stops Ken's momentum cold. With Ken down for the moment, Triple H finally gets himself a breather before noticing that referee Tim White is still in the ring after the last match. Still angry at White for not noticing Ken's attack on Shawn, Hunter is more than happy as he approaches Tim to bully him into ring the bell, something the intimidated referee does in heartbeat as Triple H threatens him with violence!

Vader VS "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels ©

 

It was just over a year ago that these two men went to war at Summerslam over the WWF World Heavyweight Championship and while their attitudes and the prize might be different, their opening actions stay the same as they circle and size each other up after the bell. For the first few minutes things are a showing of Shawn having learned from their big match, HBK taking care to not get caught by Vader as the big man makes attempts to grab the champion. Eventually it pays off as Vader lunges just a little bit too far, causing him to stumble a bit and give Shawn enough time to run to the ropes and return with a Flying Forearm Smash!

 

While Shawn may not be big enough for such a move to put Vader on his back, it definitely keeps the big man dazed long enough for Shawn to go for a second that gets Vader on the ropes! A third is in the works, this time with obvious plans for Shawn to send Vader to the ringside floor, but his leap is interrupted by a mid-air catch by Vader! Michaels pleads with Vader to put him down gently, but the big monster doesn't seem interested in mercy as he parades around the ring for the crowd with Shawn in his arms before bringing him down with a mighty slam!

 

What follows are minutes of Vader in control, the man in the mask putting his power game to use as he batters Shawn with tree trunk like forearms and sends him flying around the ring through heavy impact slams. After a particularly nasty series of Body Avalanches in the corner, Vader makes an attempt for the Vader Bomb to put away Michaels. Unfortunately for him, Shawn manages to roll out of the way at the very last second; HBK quick to get up and follow up with a sudden Superkick that puts Vader down! Michaels isn't satisfied just there however, the champion making his own ascent as he climbs to the top of the turnbuckle himself before coming down hard with a Diving Elbow Drop on Vader! Michaels throws a limp arm over for the cover, one, two.....NO! Vader just barely lifts his arm in time!

 

As commentary freaks out over Vader's kickout, an angry Triple H decides to go into action as he leaves his seat and immediately hops onto the apron and argue with referee Tim White. An action that proves to be a great distraction as Shawn Michaels suddenly kips up before rolling out to ringside, the still dazed HBK ripping his European title from the hands of the timekeeper before returning to the ring. With HHH still keeping White busy, Shawn waits for the slowly recovering Vader to rise as he positions himself and the belt in the right spot. Before Shawn can strike with the gold however, he's grabbed from behind and sent overhead with a German Suplex by one Ken Shamrock!

 

Referee White doesn't see Ken's attack, but Triple H sure as hell does and leaps off the apron to do something about it, only to get met with fists instead of words as Shamrock attacks him too! Meanwhile in the ring, Vader has fully recovered and has a stunned Michaels at his mercy as he drags him to a corner. With nobody left in his way and Shawn barely able to move, Vader climbs up the turnbuckle once again before leaping and connecting with the Vader Bomb! White leaps down for the count, and this time it's a surefire one, two, three for a NEW WWF European Champion!

"The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock VS Triple H

 

The moment the bell rings Triple H is upon Shamrock for the cover, but the low blow wasn't enough as Ken kicks out before the count even gets to one! Frustrated, Triple H is quick to pick up Shamrock and position him for the Pedigree, only to be flung right over Ken's back as he lifts Hunter with a shout of intensity and rage! Triple H recovers quick as he rises back to his feet, but Shamrock is on him immediately as he grabs him for a sudden Belly to Belly Suplex! Shamrock isn't interested in pinning Triple H just yet however, and he proves it as lifts Hunter up once more before bringing him back down with a second Belly to Belly!

 

For the next few minutes Ken Shamrock takes Triple H on a trip through suplex city as the accomplished fighter takes out his rage toward DX by putting Hunter through every suplex in his repertoire. Belly to Back, Vertical, Fisherman, German and once again even the Belly to Belly Suplex all get hit, but still Ken doesn't want to make the pin. Fortunately for Triple H, he's able to roll out of the ring after the last Belly to Belly for a few seconds of rest on the outside. Unfortunately for him, Ken follows him right out and is back on him as he reaches out for his hair...only to get got in a toe hold and driven face first into the steel steps!

 

With Ken stunned after his impact with the steps, Triple H is quick to follow up by whipping him into the post opposite from them to keep him stunned. From there it's a return to the ring for the two men as Triple takes the reigns and puts Shamrock through his own offense. Hunter even mocking Shamrock at one point after some ground and pound as he copies Ken's usually intense pose of spread arms a shout to the sky. On commentary the King loves this display, but JR mentions that Triple H will end up paying for that if Ken has anything to say about it. As it turns out Triple H doesn't have to wait long for that prediction to come true, as Ken counters another Pedigree attempt and turns it into an opportunity for his Ankle Lock to be applied!

 

For minutes it's a tease on the crowd's emotions as they see Triple H's resiliency crumble to the pain of the Ankle Lock, Shamrock making sure they're not bored as his face ramps up in intensity each passing second. In a sudden surprise, a previously forgotten Shawn Michaels leaps onto the apron with the timekeeper's bell in hand and a livid look on his face as he glares at the man who cost him championship gold. Without wasting any time Shawn rushes into the ring and aims for Ken's skull, but Shamrock is in the zone as he lets go of Hunter's ankle before dodging and catching Shawn from behind for a picture perfect German suplex! With Shawn out of the way Shamrock returns to his previous submission, the reapplication of the hold proving to be too much for Triple H as he finally taps out in the middle of the ring!

After a shot of Ken Shamrock standing tall over the fallen DX and a quick commerical, we're back to the final segment of the evening as Vince McMahon already awaits the audience in the ring. Vince begins by thanking the crowd for joining the WWF tonight for another great episode of RAW is WAR, but he's quickly drowned out by chants of "You screwed Bret!" and the echoing boos that follow. To Vince's credit he took it all in stride, the owner of the WWF letting the crowd get the majority of their negativity out before continuing.

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, let me be the first to make it clear to you all that I do not blame any of you for your feelings right now. I am a man who is more than willing to take responsibility for my actions, and it is with a heavy amount of personal shame that I admit to you all that myself and my company did not handle the aftermath of Survivor Series properly. Instead of giving out official statements, I had the company keep silent as we worked to control damage within our doors. Instead of making sure we squashed all and any malicious rumors or false journalism, we let them grow and fester in our fanbase and offices. For that ladies and gentlemen, I apologize."

 

"However, I am here now to clear up any and all misconceptions about what happened that cold November night in Canada...and I think it's only appropriate to cut to the heart of the matter and inform you all why it happened. You see, in this business there are a number of obstacles for anybody to get over in order to be successful, and one of the largest obstacles is that of ego. However getting over those egos can be one of, if not THE, hardest thing for anybody in sports entertainment to do and unfortunately for the WWF, our fans, and our employees it was egos that caused the near disaster in Montreal."

 

"Now notice that I said near disaster, not "Screwjob" like the media and some of the more toxic members on the world wide web have been labeling the incident...and that is because quite frankly, there was no screwjob in the first place at Survivor Series. What happened then was an unfortunate clash of egos and emotions causing what was...almost the worst decision of my life both personally and professionally, however thanks to the timely interference of one man...one legend...we were able to avoid the worst. Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you...Randy "Macho Man" Savage!"

The last time we saw Vince McMahon and Randy Savage together was at the Survivor Series, and back then Vince was anything but happy when he laid eyes on just who "stopped him from making the worst decision of his life." Tonight however, Vince is all smiles as the crowd gladly welcomes back one of the company's greatest stars...the only issue is...Randy Savage isn't smiling. There's no sign of the usual "Macho Man" energy, no sign of the enthusiasm of being welcomed back home so graciously...just a stern face that appears to tighten as he enters the ring with Vince.

 

If Vince is bothered by the lack of expression from Randy, he certainly does a good job of not showing it as he moves on to thanking Savage for taking things in his own hands at the Survivor Series. Somewhere in the speech Vince makes a mention of Randy also preventing the total destruction of his relationship with Bret and the rest of the Harts, as a matter of fact...just yesterday Vince was able to sign the entire Hart Foundation to brand new contracts that will see them be a part of the WWF for years to come!

 

The crowd pops at that announcement, happy to see Bret not leaving the company....but then Randy Savage rips the mic from Vince's hand. For a few seconds afterwards it's just silence from both men, Vince simply stunned while Randy's look of disdain from Survivor Series returns as he stares at McMahon.

 

"Vince McMahon...when Bret Hart signed his new contract...did you tell him to his face...how he was no longer a worthwhile investment to you? How much you hated him for daring to say no to you? Or did you decide you were going to save that piece of information for a little press conference, yeah...
after
screwing him over?"

 

The accusation settles in for a few seconds before Vince snaps out of his shock and begins to angrily deny Savage's claims, the Macho Man having none of it as he keeps the mic from Vince's grasp.

 

"Vince McMahon it is out of the upmost respect for what you've done for me that I'm not telling these people
EVERYTHING
, yeah...but I know you Vince. I know you'll hide the truth for as long as possible, yeah...so I am giving you three weeks! Either you tell these people the truth...or
