RepoMan Posted April 18, 2018 Share Posted April 18, 2018 WWF 1996: Attitude Adjustment January 1, 1996: "In somewhat of a shock move, World Wrestling Federation owner, Vince McMahon has named magazine editor Vince Russo as the company's new head booker/writer. Sources are reporting that the WWF is in for somewhat of an 'overhaul' moving forth." ~ Wrestling Observer Newsletter 12/17/95 - In Your House 5 results, from Hershey Pennsylvania: - WWF IC Champion, Razor Ramon and Marty Jannetty defeated Psycho Sid and The 1-2-3 Kid at 12:23 when Razor pinned Sid with a bulldog off the middle turnbuckle. During the match, Goldust and his usher watched on from the crowd. Todd Pettengill approached him to get a word to which he said he was keeping his eyes on Razor. - Ahmed Johnson defeated Buddy Landel [sub for Dean Douglas] at the 42 second mark with the Pearl River Plunge. Shortly thereafter, Jerry Lawler and a returning Jeff Jarrett (who after a five month hiatus was invited to do guest commentary, as he was promoting his new album, "Greater Than Great", which Lawler had presented him with a golden CD plaque to commemorate selling 500,000 copies) began insulting Johnson. When Ahmed started to threaten The King, Double J smashed him over the head with his new plaque. Jarrett continued the assault momentarily, before quickly retreating backstage. - Hunter Hearst Helmsley defeated Henry O. Godwinn at 8:58 in an Arkansas Hog Pen match by backdropping Henry into the hog pen. Hillbilly Jim was the surprise guest referee. - Owen Hart defeated Diesel via disqualification at 4:34 when Big Daddy Cool shoved referee Tim White. Diesel opted not to pin Owen after one Jacknife powerbomb, but instead shouted: "This Is For YOU, Shawn!" and delivered another. Shortly thereafter, Diesel motioned that he wanted the WWF World Heavyweight Title back around his waist. - The Undertaker defeated King Mabel at 6:11 in a Casket Match, stuffing both members of Men On A Mission into the casket, locking the door shut. During the match, The Deadman regained the remnants of the urn, and afterwards motioned that he too wanted the WWF World Title. - WWF World Champion, Bret Hart defeated The British Bulldog at 21:09 via pinfall with an Oklahoma side roll after kicking the challenger in the face as he ran towards the corner. During the match it was announced that due to his dominant victory tonight, The Undertaker would be challenging for the WWF Title at The Royal Rumble. Post-match, Todd Pettingill conducted a backstage interview with The Undertaker and Paul Bearer in regards to his upcoming title shot, but then.... Big Daddy Cool came nose-to-nose with The Phenom, outraged he wasn't the one receiving the shot! Hey guys, my name is Nick. I used to post here under a different name that I can't remember many many moons ago. I'm RKOwnage's brother and shall no longer lurk in silence. Was originally gonna play in-game through WrestleMania 12 before dropping this, but feel as if I've evoked enough here to make things at least semi-intriguing from jump. Info, roster and first Monday Night RAW preview to follow. Enjoy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
