WWF Sunday Night Heat Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Breslin Arena, East Lansing, MI



Commentators: Michael Cole & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviews: Kevin Kelly
Ring Announcer: Tony Chimel
Referees: Mike Chioda, Chad Patton & Jack Doan



Backstage Segment

Jim Cornette opened the show by touting his New Midnight Express to the masses during a locker room interview with Kevin Kelly. Matt Hardy, who was in the background prepping for his upcoming match with Christian later this evening, couldn't help but overhear the unwarranted hype. Apparently Matt wasn't buying what Cornette was selling and interrupted the promo to tell the motormouth manager as much. Hardy pointed out that this latest variation of the Midnight Express paled in comparison to it's famous predecessors, "Well, nobody cares what you think !" Cornette retorted, but the damage had been done. Cleared ruffled by the disruption, Cornette lost his focus and was forced to cut the segment short all of which resulted in the New Midnight Express losing 50 points for tonight's opening contest against L.O.D. 2000.




1. L.O.D. 2000 (Animal & Hawk) w/ Sunny vs. the New Midnight Express ("Bodacious" Bart Gunn & "Bombastic" Bob Holly) w/ Jim Cornette


Jim Cornette was still fuming over Matt Hardy's intrusion by the time he and the New Midnight Express made their way to ringside. Cornette usually makes the match introductions for his team, however he was so flustered by the botched interview that he allowed Tony Chimel to do the honors instead. On the opposing side, Hawk's "What a rrrrrrruuuuuuuushhhhhh !" growl pumped up the fans and added 100 bonus points to L.O.D.'s total. Hawk and Animal tacked on another 75 points for rolling on their Strength Modifier with the New Midnight Express countering somewhat by earning 50 points of their own for Savvy. When all the numbers were crunched, L.O.D. 2000 were heavy favorites to win the match, and win they did (with a little unexpected help from Mr. Cornette himself). The Louisville Loudmouth was both off his game and off his mark tonight. He accidentally clobbered Bombastic Bob with an errant tennis racquet smash enabling Animal to score the winning pinfall at 8:25.





Backstage Segment


Kevin Kelly attempted to interview Matt Hardy about the Hardy Boyz recent feud with Edge and Christian of the Brood when Jim Cornette burst onto the set to stir up trouble. Matt was taking no guff from him, however, and rhetorically asked how the New Midnight Express fared against L.O.D. 2000 tonight. The confrontation became heated with Cornette challenging the Hardy Boyz to face his team on next week's edition of RAW. Matt gladly accepted, but lost 50 points for having his promo interrupted.




2. Matt Hardy (w/ Jeff Hardy & Michael Hayes) vs. Christian of the Brood (w/ "The Vampire Warrior" Gangrel & Edge)


Referee Chad Patton had the unenviable task of maintaining order in this contest given the frequent outside interference of the respective corner men. Patton allowed a lot of leeway, but was ultimately forced to call the match and disqualify both competitors at 6:09 when Edge and Jeff Hardy entered the ring to join in the fray. Cornette's New Midnight Express then compounded the chaos by racing in from the back and attacking Matt Hardy. Oddly enough, the Brood then began brawling with Gunn and Holly. "No chance in hell !" theme music soon brought an end to the mayhem. Mr .McMahon came out with his cronies Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson and told the warring parties to save their energy. The Boss said that he was ratcheting up the Hardy Boyz/New Midnight Express contest to now include the Brood in what will be a Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match on RAW with the winning team getting a title shot at the Headbangers. "Did y'all hear what Mr. Mack-man said ?" Brisco chimed in. The teams disbursed with the understanding of both the opportunity and danger that had been presented to them by the owner.





Backstage Segment - The Kiss of Death


The roving WWF camera man comes across a rendezvous between Test and Stephanie McMahon backstage. There clearly seemed to be some flirting and romantic chemistry going on between the two. Stephanie thanked Test again for the Valentine's Day sweets and flowers. The two lovebirds then begin discussing Test's upcoming match against Chainz. The conversation was suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Pat Patterson who seemed antsy and uncomfortable being in the couple's presence. Patterson informed Stephanie that her father wished to speak with her in his office. He looked away as she gave Test a peck on the cheek for good luck tonight. Stephanie then departed with Patterson. Neither seemed to take notice of Big Trouble (the Big Boss Man and Big Show) who were walking with conviction in Test's direction. No sooner had Patterson and Stephanie turned the corner that we witness Big Trouble putting a brutal clubberin' on Test.





3. Test vs. Chainz of the Disciples of the Apocalypse

This match never took place. As a result of the beating that he had just sustained at the hands of Big Show and the Big Boss Man moments ago, Test had to receive medical attention and was unable to compete. The void was filled by an impromptu in-ring promo from Bret "The Hitman" Hart who spoke his mind regarding a variety of subjects including Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels, Montreal, and his subsequent departure from the company. It was about this time that Stephanie entered her father's office backstage and found Vince watching Bret's monologue on a monitor.




Mr. McMahon: "He's not under contract yet, but I think we can get him to appear at the Royal Rumble."




Stephanie: 'Who are you talking about ?"




Stephanie turned to look at the screen and was surprised to see Bret Hart in the ring.




Stephanie: "Wait, is this live, dad ?"




Mr. McMahon: "Sure it's live. I'm going to let Hart speak his piece and get it all off his chest. Hopefully we can put the past behind us and bring him back onboard."




Stephanie: "Yeah, but Test is suppose to be wrestling Chainz right now. Is their match over already ??"




Mr. McMahon: "Not exactly."




Stephanie: "Not exactly ? What's that suppose to mean ? You didn't cancel the match for Hart's promo did you ?"




Mr. McMahon: "We had to. Test wasn't fit to wrestle tonight."




Stephanie: "Wait .... what ?? I just saw him like ten minutes ago and he was fine."




Mr. McMahon: "Well, something ..... happened."




Stephanie was in disbelief and grew angry with her father for ignoring her with his vague answers. She then deliberately stood in front of the screen to blocked Vince's vision.




Stephanie: "What's going on ??"




Mr. McMahon: "Stephanie, please ! I'm trying to watch this !"




Stephanie: "I know that you know, dad ! Is Test alright ?? "




Mr. McMahon: "We'll talk about it later !"




Stephanie had enough and stormed out of Vince's office slamming the door behind her.





4. Ladies Tag Team Match - "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna & Tori of D-Generation X (w/ Hunter Hearst Helmsley) vs. WWF Ladies Champion Sable & her enforcer Nicole Bass


Despite being on the mend, Triple H was still on crutches as he made his way down to ringside to cut a promo. Helmsley assured the crowd that he would be ready for the Royal Rumble and vowed to defeat the Rock for the Intercontinental Champion. He then began to expound upon Chyna's participation in the Rumble and how she was cheated out of the Ladies Title when Sable pinned Luna Vachon with the help of Nicole Bass in a Fatal Four Way Championship Match on RAW. Hunter's speech was cut short, however, by Owen Hart who came out on the ramp with a microphone to question the validity of Helmsley's hyperextended knee injury. Triple H contends that he was intentionally injured by Hart's Sharpshooter; a charge that Owen emphatically denies. "You take care of your business tonight little Owen," Helmsley said, "And I'll take care of mine." (Triple H was no doubt referring to Hart's match later this evening against "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn.) Hart may not have the same mic skills as Helmsley, but he succeeded in costing the ladies of DX 50 points by his interruption. Nicole Bass then tried to use the confrontation to her advantage by attacking Chyna before the bell, but "The Ninth Wonder of the World" was ready for her and caught Sable's enforcer with a Military Press Slam. Sable has undergone a noticeable attitude change ever since appearing in the recent issue of Playboy magazine and seems to relish in her newly found heel status. She and Bass cheated often in the match and employed several illegal tags and dirty double team maneuvers. Karma would come back to haunt them in the end, though. Bass cradled Chyna in a Small Package, but Referee Mike Chioda was busy sending Tori and Sable back to their respective corners. This allowed Ivory (who was injured by Bass in the aforementioned Fatal Four Way Match) to sneak into the ring and reverse the cradle. Chioda finally turned around to find Chyna on top and counted the pin for DX at 6:53.




Royal Rumble Promo





The commercial hypes Chyna as the first woman to ever compete in a Royal Rumble. There's a montage of clips featuring "the Ninth Wonder of the World" in action from various matches. They demonstrate her ability to more than hold her own against her male counterparts. The segment ends by reminding us that the winner of the Rumble gets a title shot against WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania.




5. "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry of the Nation of Domination vs. WWF European Champion The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust (w/ Luna Vachon)


This is a Non-Title Match. Both competitors had good interviews with Kevin Kelly prior to the contest to add bonus points to their scores. The European Champ increased his total further by rolling on his Cheating Modifier. The real story of this match, though, was the complete absence of Nation of Domination members in Mark Henry's corner. Michael Cole speculated if the Nation had abandoned him and left Henry to fend for himself tonight. That question was answered soon enough when Ahmed Johnson came down to ringside in Nation attire and pulled Goldust's foot out from under him on a Verticle Suplex attempt. Johnson's interference caused Henry to fall on top and gain the pinfall at 7:37. After the bell, Henry and Johnson gave the Nation of Domination Fist Salute to the crowd to dispel any lingering doubts. This signifies the second time that Ahmed Johnson has interfered to help the Nation win a match. The Pearl River Powerhouse has apparently taken Faarooq's vacant place within the stable.




Backstage Segment


The New Blackjacks are stewing over their recent lack of success within the tag team ranks. Bradshaw contemplates whether or not they should dissolve the tag team and just go their separate ways. Barry Windham, the veteran of the duo, tries to persuade him to stick with it. Bradshaw reluctantly agrees, but we can see that his heart is not in it. Windham gives him a reassuring pat on the back and walks off. Bradshaw turns around to find Faarooq in his face. Apparently the former leader of the Nation of Domination has been eavesdropping on the New Blackjack's conversation. "You can do better," Farrooq said. "Is that a proposition ?" Bradshaw asked. "That depends," Faarooq answered, "Do you like playing cards and drinking beer ?" Bradshaw responded with an emphatic "Hell yeah !" Faarooq nodded and said "So do I. Let's talk."




6. "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn of D-Generation X (w/ Road Dogg) vs. Owen Hart (w/ Bret "The Hitman" Hart)


Things continue to heat up between the Hart Brothers and the New Age Outlaws after disparaging remarks were made by DX regarding the Hart family. The feud featured a singles match tonight pitting Billy Gunn against Owen Hart in our Main Event. Both competitors made big entrances to boost their points totals and received help from their corner men after the action got under way. At one point, Road Dogg snuck into the ring and planted Owen into the mat with a DDT while Referee Jack Doan was arguing with the Hitman. Bret then got involved by reaching into the ring and tripping Billy as he bounded off the ropes. All heck broke loose once the Dogg slid a folding chair into the ring for Billy to use. The Hitman and Road Dogg went at it OOR which drew Doan's attention momentarily away from the match. Looking to capitalize on the distraction, Gunn charged at his opponent with the chair but had it sent into his own face by a Spin Kick from Owen. Doan then turned around to find Hart making the cover and counted the pin at 10:15.




Backstage Segment - Trainer's Room


Unbeknownst to Stephanie who has been searching for him backstage, Test is in the trainer's room with a big bandage on his forehead after having a gash stitched up by the ringside physician. Pat Patterson enters to see how he's doing. He notes the puffiness around Test's left eye and tells him that he's going to have a nice shiner in the morning. "Vince was behind this wasn't he ?" Test asks. Patterson just shrugs. "Maybe he was ......... and maybe he wasn't." Test ponders Patterson's comment and adds, "I'm not good enough for his daughter, is that it ??" Patterson hands him an ice pack. "Love hurts, kid," he says and exits the room. And with that we fade to black with the WWF logo.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Muskogee Civic Center, Muskogee, OK. Att: 5,195.

Announcers: Jim Ross & Michael P.S. Hayes
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referee: Ronnie West, Carl Fergie & Tommy Gilbert

1. The always entertaining Mike Boyette did not take kindly to a fan’s derogatory sign and ripped up the poster as he made his way down to ringside to take on “Raging Greek” Mike Pappas in our opening contest. As it turned out, the drama did not end there with the audacious spectator. Boyette allowed himself to be drawn into a shouting match with the rowdy fan and turned right into a Missile Drop Kick from the 2nd rope to give Pappas the victory at 5:26.

2. Brickhouse Brown cut a great promo with Jim Ross to earn himself extra bonus points before taking on “Gorgeous” Gary Young. Unable to get anything going inside the ring, Young took the battle to the floor where he hoped to have the advantage. Brown continued to get the better of Gorgeous Gary with a reverse head smash to the wooden steps before tossing him back inside the ring just as Referee Carl Fergie’s ten count was running out. Brickhouse could not believe his misfortune when he failed to make the count himself. Your winner by Count Out at 5:38 – an extremely fortunate Gary Young.

3. Kortsia Korchenko had two things going for him in his match with Steve Cox. The big Russian not only gained a substantial bonus for rolling on his Size modifier, but he also had tag team partner Vladimir Petrov in his corner for the contest. It was the second factor that proved to be the most pivotal. Petrov got in numerous illegal cheap shots along the way to provoke Cox into a confrontation on the floor. Vladimir took a beating OOR but succeeded in getting Cox counted out in the process. The time of the match was 9:32.

4. Representing the First Family of Professional Wrestling, Rick Steiner (w/ “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert & “First Lady” Missy Hyatt) beat Chavo Guerrero at 13:16. Steiner received a rather rude reception (and bonus heel points) when he was doused with a cup of beer by an over-zealous fan during his ring entrance. Outside interference would determine the outcome of this bout. The crafty Guerrero was able to catch his opponent in a surprise Small Package only to have the cradle reversed by Eddie Gilbert while Referee Ronnie West was being distracted by Missy Hyatt. The official finally turned around to find Steiner on top and counted the 1-2-3.

5. The Ugandan Giant Kamala (w/ Handler Friday) attacked before the bell to get the early jump on his opponent Sam Houston. The lanky Cowboy persevered, however, and was eventually able to turn the tide in his favor after side-stepping a corner charge. The dazed Kamala stumbled into Houston’s Diving Cross Body Press from the top rope, but the momentum of the maneuver put the Ugandan Giant on top for the winning pinfall at 4:18.

6. “Gentleman” Chris Adams & Sting made a spectacular entrance and rode the bonus points all the way to victory over the tandem of Ted Dibiase & “Timekeeper” Mike George at 11:35. Dibiase was dipping down into the tights for his controversial black glove when he caught an Adams’ Superkick right on the button. Mike George ran in to break up the pin with a clock smash but drew the DQ from Referee Tommy Gilbert when the official spotted the flagrant foul.

7. Steve “Dr. Death” Williams defended his UWF Heavyweight Championship against Number One Contender Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy in the Main Event. The Champ was at a huge disadvantage when Buddy Roberts & Michael P.S. Hayes accompanied Gordy to the ring to be in the challenger’s corner. Both would play a significant role in the finish. The flamboyant Hayes used his motormouth to distract Referee Ronnie West enabling Buddy Roberts to toss the UWF Championship belt into the ring to Gordy. Bam Bam walloped Williams in the head with his own title and scored the winning pinfall at 21:31 when West finally turned around to count the tainted 1-2-3. Terry Gordy is the neeeeeeeeeewwwwww UWF Heavyweight Champion !

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Monroe Civic Center, Monroe, LA. Att: 2,939.

Announcers: Jim Ross & Magnum T.A.
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referee: Edward Falk, Tommy Gilbert & Carl Fergie



1.Veteran Art Crew has been showing his dark side as of late in the UWF. Crews further cemented his heel status in the eyes of the fans by tearing up a youngster’s program when the lad asked him for an autograph. The bonus heel points came in handy during his victory over Perry Jackson in our opening contest. Jackson was caught in a Swinging Neckbreaker when he telegraphed a Back Body Drop attempt and pinned at 6:55.

2. “Mr. Superb” Steve Doll offered a dubious handshake toward opponent Bobby Fulton after the opening bell sounded and was promptly tossed across the ring with a Flying Arm Drag for his trouble. Fulton continued to dominate the action until his Drop Kick to Doll’s kisser inadvertently sent Referee Tommy Gilbert crashing hard to the canvas. The dazed Gilbert chastised both men for the bump and called for the bell at 3:03. The official decision was a Double Disqualification.

3. Brad Armstrong over the Angel of Death by DQ at 6:36. The Angel attempted to get the upper hand with a sneak attack before the bell but Armstrong was ready for him. Brad thwarted the preemptive strike with a well placed crescent kick to the midsection and then took his adversary off his feet with a Drop Toe Hold. Armstrong applied a prolonged and grueling leg lock to keep the Angel grounded to the mat for several minutes. Once back up to a verticle base, Brad retained the advantage with a wrenching side headlock. The Angel’s answer to escape the hold was to send Armstrong crashing into Referee Carl Fergie. The official wasted no time in calling for the disqualification.

4. Michael P.S. Hayes was the beneficiary of some outside interference from fellow Freebird Buddy Roberts in a Count Out victory over UWF Rookie of the Year Shane Douglas at 14:10. Douglas was on the verge of pushing Hayes to the 15:00 Time Limit when Roberts wrapped a chain around his fist and clobbered the youngster with a loaded punch to the jaw during OOR action. Shane was out cold on the floor as Referee Edward Falk’s ten count expired.

5. It appeared obvious right from the get go that the bout between “Gentleman” Chris Adams (w/ Sting in his corner) and Bad Leroy Brown of Devastation Incorporated (w/ General Skandor Akbar and “Wild” Bill Irwin in his corner) was destined for chaos. Before the opening bell had even rung, Irwin and Sting were brawling in the ring right alongside Adams and Brown. UWF Commissioner John Ayers quickly took charge and changed the bout to an impromptu tag team match instead. Despite Ayers best intentions, the match degenerated into a four man free-for-all. Unable to restore order, Referee Tommy Gilbert had no choice but to call for the bell and disqualify both teams at 7:47.

6. The Okies (Steve Cox & former UWF heavyweight Champ Steve “Dr. Death” Williams) defeated the First Family of Professional Wrestling (Terry Taylor & UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert) at 13:21. As always, Gilbert and Taylor drew tremendous heat from the crowd to earn bonus heel points, but it was not enough to help carry them to a victory. Hot Stuff was in the process of hoisting Cox up for a Body Slam when Dr. Death snuck in with a Drop Kick that sent his partner on top of Gilbert for the winning three count.

7. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan received some pearls of wisdom from Magnum T.A. at the announcers’ table prior to his Main Event bout against Ted Dibiase. Magnum must have warned Hacksaw to be aware of Dibiase’s mysterious black glove because Duggan was able to block any would-be-loaded punches. Duggan could not avoid a head smash into a hot dog vendor’s cart, however, once the action spilled OOR and into the concession stands. Hacksaw gamely tried to get himself back inside the ring, but it was not in time to make Referee Edward Faulk’s ten count. The time of the match was 12:31.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) – East Park Recreation Center, Houma, LA. Att: 2,215.

Commentators: Jim Ross & “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Ring Announcer: Reeser Bowden
Referees: Alfred Neely, Jerry Usher & Ron West

1.”Cuban Hitman” Gustavo Mendoza defeated Davey Haskins via Count Out at 7:53. Haskins employed his speed and finesse quite effectively against the Cuban Hitman in the ring. Looking to turn the momentum in his favor, Mendoza took the battle to the floor where he sent Haskins crashing into the steel barricade railing. Davey was then slammed through the time keeper’s table and unable to make Referee Alfred Neely’s ten count.

2. Brett Sawyer cut an excellent promo with Jim Ross prior to his match with “White Lightning” Tim Hoerner and said that he was very much looking forward to a good clean scientific contest. He got just that and then some. Hoerner and Sawyer put on a wrestling clinic and traded holds and counter holds as the bout’s time limit rapidly approached. Unfortunately, controversy would mar the ending of this terrific contest. Brett became trapped in White Lightning’s Bridging Belly to Back Suplex, but was able to grab the bottom rope with his left hand to break the pin count. Referee Jerry Usher missed it completely and counted the pin anyway at 9:06. Sawyer was visibly upset and argued with the official to no avail. In an effort to placate the situation, Hoerner suggested that he and Sawyer meet again next week for another match with Brett taking him up on the offer.

3. Devastation Incorporated’s One Man Gang was DQ’d in his match with “Missouri Tiger” Jeff Gaylord at 6:27. Standing 6’ 3” and weighing some 280lbs, Gaylord is no small man but he was certainly dwarfed by his 6’ 9”, 450lb opponent from Halstead Street in Chicago. The Gang rolled big on his Cheating modifier, but breaking the rules would come back to bite him in the end. Referee Ron West caught OMG slugging Gaylord with a chain wrapped around his fist and immediately called for the bell.

4. “Freebird” Buddy Roberts wrestled Chavo Guerrero to a Double Count Out at 6:41. Chavo was well received in Houma and signed autographs for youngsters as he made his way to the ring to earn bonus points. Guerrero would become increasingly frustrated by his adversary who constantly bailed from the ring at the first sign of trouble. Roberts was taking yet another “time out” on the floor when Chavo went out after him. The two battled back up the aisle and into the Food Court as Referee Alfred Neely’s ten count expired.

5. Things were looking good for Tommy Rogers of the Fantastics when his opponent Terry Taylor came to the ring without his usual contingent of First Family members. Alas, his good fortune proved to be short lived. UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert and “First Lady” Missy Hyatt made their way to ringside mid-match and would figure prominently in the bout’s outcome. Rogers sent Taylor hard into the turnbuckle on a corner whip, but his subsequent Monkey Flip attempt was met with a faceful of powder courtesy of Gilbert while Missy Hyatt distracted Referee Jerry Usher. Taylor then pounced on his blinded foe with both feet on the ropes for leverage to gain the tainted pinfall at 13:13.

6. The Jive Tones (Shaska Whatley & Tiger Conway Jr.) over General Skandor Akbar’s Devastation Incorporated (“Wild” Bill Irwin & Bad, Leroy Brown w/ Eli the Eliminator) by DQ at 9:26. The Jive Tones stated in a pre-match interview with Jim Ross that they were going to use this match to springboard them into the Number One Contender’s slot for a crack at the Sheepherder’s UWF Tag Team Championship. It looked like curtains for Wild Bill after the Tones combined for a Double Russian Leg Sweep on him, but Eli ran in and broke up the pin to draw the disqualification from Referee Ron West.

7. Sting defeated Big Bubba Rogers in the Main Event at 17:42. Rogers got off to a fast start by using his ample bulk to wear down the Stinger, but endurance took its toll on the big man as the bout progressed. Fatigued and fading fast, Bubba brought a folding chair into the ring but had it sent into his own face by his adversary’s Drop Kick. Sting quickly hooked a leg on the dazed Rogers to gain the three count.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) – Kemper Arena, Kansas City, MO. Att: 2,116.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Magnum T.A.
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referees: Tommy Gilbert, Edward Faulk & Carl Fergie

1.”Mr. Superb” Steve Doll over Art Crews in our opening contest at 6:52. Doll’s win/loss record in the UWF has been anything but “superb”, but he did manage to eke out a shady victory here tonight. Crews attempted to sling shot himself into the ring with a Sunset Flip from the apron, but Doll sat on his chest and held onto the top rope for leverage to score the tainted pinfall.

2. Rick Steiner of The First Family of Professional Wrestling defeated “Raging Greek” Mike Pappas. Steiner lost points while cutting a pre-match promo with Jim Ross when Savannah Jack abruptly interrupted the interview. Steiner was clearly caught off guard by the intrusion. Savannah took control of the segment and said that he was sick and tired of the First Family. He vowed to take the UWF Television Championship Belt from “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert even if it meant having to go through Steiner and Terry Taylor to get the title shot. Unfortunately for Pappas, the flustered Steiner took his wrath out on him. The Raging Greek could have been pinned several times, but Steiner kept yanking him up to inflict more damage. A Powerslam off the ropes finally ended things at 6;12.

3. “White Lightning” Tim Hoerner bested Brett Sawyer in a rematch from last week. Sawyer, who was pinned with a Bridging Back Suplex despite grabbing the bottom rope to break the count, came to the ring in a foul mood this evening. Tim Hoerner’s handshake offer to kick things off was declined to set the tone of the bout. Sawyer wrestled a much more aggressive style and walked the thin line of breaking the rules on several occasions. Controversy once again came into play at the conclusion of the contest. Taking a page from Art Crews’ repertoire, White Lightning caught Sawyer with a Sunset Flip into the ring from the apron, however Brett was able to maintain his balance by grabbing the top rope until Referee Carl Fergie kicked his hand off. Hoerner was then able to complete the maneuver for the pinfall at 7:20. Sawyer was furious and stormed out of the ring in a huff.

4. Michael P.S. Hayes beat Brickhouse Brown with a little help from fellow Freebird Buddy Roberts. Brown quickly took control of this match after thwarting a sneak attack immediately following “Jolting” Joe Bryan’s ring introductions. Hayes remained on the defensive until Roberts interjected himself by yanking Brown’s foot out from under him while Brickhouse was perched on the second rope and administering ten punches in the corner. Brown fell backward to the canvas and was greeted with a Bulldog as he tried to get back up. Referee Tommy Gilbert added the 1-2-3 to seal the victory for Hayes at 5:04.

5. Savannah Jack defeated Kortsia Korchenko at 13:34. Still seething from Savannah’s disruption during an interview segment earlier in the program, Rick Steiner returned to ringside to be in the big Russian’s corner. Looking to give Korchenko an edge in the action, Steiner attempted to toss a foreign object into the ring to him but overshot his reach. Korchenko bent over to pick up the weapon and turned right into a Superkick from Savannah leading to the three count.

6. Hailing from the City of Angels, the Fantastics (Bobby Fulton and Tommy Rogers) beat the tandem of Ted Dibiase & “Timekeeper” Mike George via DQ at 9:21. Both teams showcased their technical prowess in a refreshingly scientific and fairly even tag contest that is until the Timekeeper missed a corner charge and ran full steam into the turnbuckle. Looking to capitalize on the opportunity, the Fantastics quickly combined for a Rocket Launcher on George (Fulton Assisted Splash from the top rope), however Dibiase yanked Referee Carl Fergie out of the ring by his ankles to break up the pin count and draw the disqualification.

7. Lord Humongous was disqualified in the Main Event against “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan. In an interesting turn of events, General Skandor Akbar offered his managerial services to Humongous during a pre-match interview with Jim Ross and gave him an open invitation to become a member of his Devastation Incorporated stable. Akbar was not done yet. He also slipped a chain to Humongous during the match which was used to choke out Duggan right in front of Referee Tommy Gilbert. The official wasted no time in calling for the bell and awarding the bout to Hacksaw at 14:02. The program concluded with Jim Ross and Magnum T.A. speculating as to whether or not Humongous would take on Akbar as his manager.

AWA Results (Circa Mid 80’s) - Minneapolis Auditorium, Minneapolis, MN. Att: 8,823.

Announcers: Rod Trongard & Verne Gagne
Ring Announcer: “Dapper” Dave Prill
Referees: Rich Frisk, Gary DeRusha & Larry Lisowski

1.”TNT” D.J. Peterson put away veteran Pete Sanchez at 3:02 of our opening contest. D.J. was welcomed with hugs and kisses from the female fans during his ring entrance. The bonus points he earned put him firmly in control and made for a rather one-sided victory. Sanchez was stunned after having his face rammed several times into a corner turnbuckle. He staggered around the ring and right into Peterson’s TNT Finisher (Diving Shoulder Tackle from the 2nd rope) for the pinfall.

2. Brandi Mae over “Sensational” Sherri Martel via Count Out at 6:34. Sherri got off to a good start after tearing up a youngster’s cardboard sign as she made her way to ringside to take on Brandi Mae. Thinking that she would have an edge OOR, Martel took the battle to the floor but ran full steam into the ring post when Brandi side-stepped her charge at the last instant. Sherri was clearly in a great deal of pain and favoring her shoulder as Referee Gary DeRusha put the ten count on her.

3. “Slick” Nick Kiniski (w/ “Mr. Magnificent” Kevin Kelly & Madusa Micelli) defeated Jake “The Milkman” Milliman by Count Out at 5:15. Kiniski brought the Milkman’s three match winning streak to an end thanks in large part to the interference of his tag team partner Kevin Kelly. Slick Nick tossed Milliman out of the ring and proceeded to distract Referee Larry Lisowski while Mr. Magnificent laid out Jake with a Running Clothesline (Kelly’s Cannon) on the floor. The Milkman gamely tried to get himself back inside the ring but it was not in time to make Lisowski’s ten count.

4. “Z Man” Tom Zenk and Alexis Smirnoff were both DQ’d by Referee Rich Frisk at 12:17. While he may prefer to showcase his technical skills and aerial prowess, Zenk allowed himself to be drawn into a prolonged slugfest with his Russian counterpart. Frisk issued repeated warnings for the combatants to open their fists and abide by the rulebook, but was simultaneously pushed down to the mat by both grapplers who were intent on duking it out. The official had enough and wasted no time in calling for the bell.

5. The Long Riders (“Wild” Bill Irwin & Scott “Hog” Irwin) defeated the Top Guns (Ricky Rice & Jon Paul Demann) in tag team action at 10:26. The Irwin Brothers endeared themselves to the Minneapolis fans be berating the city in a pre-match promo with Larry Nelson. The rugged bikers used a dirty double team behind Referee Gary DeRusha’s back to gain the upperhand. Wild Bill cut Ricky Rice off the pass as the Top Gun was going up top to attempt a high risk maneuver. Rice sustained a Superplex from Bill followed by a Running Leg Drop buy the Hog moments later. DeRusha, who was busy sending Demann back to his corner, turned around to find Scott making the cover and counted the 1-2-3.

6. Crusher Jerry Blackwell defeated Mr. Saito at 10:43. Saito was having a great deal of success with his repertoire of martial arts skills, but became distracted by “Polish Prince” Steve Olsonoski who was being interviewed by Larry Nelson at ringside. Blackwell managed to reverse a corner whip on his preoccupied foe and followed up with a huge Running Corner Avalanche that pushed the ring back by two feet. Jerry sealed the deal with a 474lb Big Splash to gain the winning pinfall.

7. AWA Heavyweight Champion Rick Martel defended the title against Curt Hennig in tonight’s Main Event. In a pre-match promo, an extremely confident Hennig vowed to beat Martel “at his own game” and “bring home the gold”. What ensued was a half hour marathon of wrestling holds and counter holds with neither man being able to gain a distinct advantage over the other. Perhaps the more hot-tempered of the two, Hennig lost his cool and turned to roughhouse tactics. The challenger soon discovered, however, that Martel could literally match him punch for punch in the brawling style as well. Both men were counted out by Referee Rich Frisk at 32:54 while they battled in the aisle OOR. Rick Martel retains the AWA World Championship !

Commentators: “Dapper” Dave Prill & Nick Bockwinkel
Ring Announcer: Al DeRusha
Referees: Robert Warren, Marty Miller & Scott Ledoux

1.”Beach Boy” Sonny Rogers opened the show with a DQ win over Rick Gantner at 7:21. Rogers made his entrance to the Beach Boy’s “Good Vibrations” but failed to generate any support whatsoever from the indifferent crowd. Sonny persevered despite the loss of points and was awarded the victory by Referee Robert Warren after Gantner tossed the Beach Boy over the top rope.

2. The Magnificent Mimi defeated Candi Devine via Count Out at 10:32. Mimi wasted no time in gragging the advantage by landing a Double Axe Handle to her opponent’s back while Devine was handing her ring jacket down to an attendant after the match introductions. The Magnificent One continued to take the battle to her foe and employed a great deal of rule-breaking along the way. Candi was dropped throat-first across the barricade railing during OOR action and was unable to answer Referee Marty Miller’s ten count.

3. “Pretty Boy” Doug Somers (without “Playboy” Buddy Rose & “Sensational” Sherri Martel) pinned Buck “Rock & Roll” Zuhoffe at 10:20. Somers threw a fit when Referee Scott Ledoux sent Martel and Rose to the back, but was resourceful enough to find a way to victory. Of course “the way” involved a little cheating and chicanery. The quick-thinking Pretty Boy grabbed the top rope to thwart Zumhoffe’s Slingshot Sunset Flip pin attempt from the apron. Somers then took a seat on Buck’s chest and continued to hold onto the top rope for extra leverage to score the three count.

4. Baron Von Rascke over “Mr. Electricity” Steve Regal (w/ “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin & Precious) at 13:11. The Baron returned from a brief haitus to loud cheers as he goose-stepped his way down the aisle with his famous claw grip held aloft for all to see. Although Regal would benefit from the distracting presence of Garvin and Precious at ringside, it would be Gorgeous Jimmy’s interference gone awry that would ultimately cost him the match. Garvin reached into the ring and errantly tripped Mr. Electricity as Regal was bounding off the ropes allowing Von Raschke to gain the winning pinfall.

5. “Olympian” Brad Rheingans beat “Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko by way of Count Out at 9:08. Rheingans earned himself some valuable bonus points by signing autographs for some youngsters who flocked around him during his ring entrance. To his amazement, Zbyszko wrestled a fairly clean and scientific match against him. All that changed once the action moved to the floor however. The Living Legend was enjoying the advantage OOR with some roughhouse tactics until Brad side-stepped a wild charge that sent Zbyszko sailing over the railing and into the crowd. Larry became entangled in some folding chairs and could not extradite himself in time to make Referee Marty Miller’s ten count.

6. AWA Television Champion Greg Gagne & his legendary father Verne Gagne defeated Boris Zhukov and his manager Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee by disqualification in our Main Event at 12:47. Verne stepped out of retirement to help his son get some payback on the vile Zhukov and his equally devious manager. Greg was busted open by a Zhukov foreign object during a recent TV Title defense and is still sporting a bandage on his forehead to protect the wound. It didn’t take long for the heels to go right back to work on the laceration. Despite the gash being re-opened once more, this bout was largely dominated by the Gagnes from start to finish. The fans were on their feet when Verne caught the Sheik in his famous Sleeper, but Nord the Barabarian raced in from the back to break up the hold and draw the DQ in the process.

AWA Results (Circa Mid 80's) - The Cow Palace, San Francisco, CA. Attn: 7,607.

Commentators: Doug McCleod & Larry "The Axe" Hennig
Ring Announcer: "Dapper" Dave Prill
Referees: Larry Lisowski, Rich Frisk & Gary DeRusha

1.D.J. Peterson topped Tom “Rocky” Stone in our opening contest at 7:37. D.J. was certainly popular with the youngsters at the Cow Palace this evening and was happy to autograph their programs during his ring entrance. Once the bell rang, though, Peterson quickly found out that his veteran opponent was no pushover. Stone used an assortment of dirty tactics to take charge of the bout but lost his advantage when a Verticle Suplex attempt was blocked and reversed. Tom was just getting back to his feet when he sustained Peterson’s TNT finisher (Flying Shoulder Tackle from the 2nd Rope) which led to the three count.

2. Pat Tanaka beat Jake “The Milkman” Milliman at 9:40. Tanaka cut a great promo with “Dapper” Dave Prill prior to the match, but had his problems with the pesky Milkman. Jake had a counter for anything that the increasingly frustrated Tanaka threw at him. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Tanaka sent Milliman crashing into Referee Rich Frisk who tumbled to the mat. Oblivious to the mischief, the woozy official disqualified the Milkman for the bad bump. Jake pleaded his case to Frisk after the bell but it fell on deaf ears.

3. There was no winner in the tag team contest pitting Madusa Micelli’s tandem of “Mr. Magnificent” Kevin Kelly & “Slick” Nick Kiniski against the Top Guns (Ricky Rice & Jon Paul Demann). Both teams had their chances but were unable to finish off their opponents. The bout eventually degenerated into a pier six brawl with all four men battling it out in the ring. Unable to restore order, Referee Gary DeRusha signaled for the bell and DQ’d both teams at 14:13.

4. The match between Mr. Go the Ninja (w/ “Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko) and Tom Zenk (w/ Brad Rheingans) also yielded no winner. As it turned out, there was as much action OOR as there was in. The grapplers’ respective cornermen got into a tussle on the floor which quickly escalated into chaos. Referee Larry Lisowski threw the match out at 12:56 when Zbyszko and Rheingans took their brawl into the ring and incorporated Zenk and Go into the mayhem. AWA Commissioner Stanley Blackburn, who was in attendance at ringside, ordered a tag team contest with the four combatants next week.

5. Big Scott Hall over Soldad Ustinov (w/Teijo Khan & Russian Flag) via disqualification at 11:28. The bad blood began immediately in this one when Hall interrupted Ustinov’s pre-match interview with Doug McCleod. Ustinov’s loss of points for the blown promo was offset by a roll on his Cheating Modifier as well as the frequent interference of Teijo Khan. Teijo went too far, however, when he bashed Hall from behind with his flagpole. Referee Rich Frisk caught him in the act and immediately signalled for the DQ.

6. Nord the Barbarian (w/ Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee & Boris Zhukov) defeated “The Mountain from Stone Mountain, GA” Crusher Jerry Blackwell by way of Count Out at 7:02. There is no love lost when it comes to Blackwell and the Skeik and his stable of henchmen. El-Kaisee, who once managed Jerry, got in several cheap shots but was unsuccessful when he reached under the bottom rope and attempted to trip up his antagonist. Fed up with the interference, Blackwell bailed from the ring to give the Sheik his comeuppance. Crusher did manage to rock El-Kaisee with a Head Butt on the floor, but was clobbered from behind by Zhukov and his Russian Chain while Nord distracted Referee Gary DeRusha. Blackwell was unable to answer DeRusha’s subsequent ten count.

7. “The Mercenary from South Africa” Colonel Debeers over “The Wildman from Borger, TX” Stan “The Lariat” Hansen in a Main Event Lumberjack Match at 12:01. Lumberjacks included Jon Paul Demann, Larry Zbyszko, PatTanaka, Scott Hall, Tom Stone, D.J. Peterson, Kevin Kelly, Nord the Barbarian, Tom Zenk, Jake Milliman, Mr. Go, Ricky Rice, Crusher Blackwell, Nick Kiniski, Brad Rheingans and Soldad Ustinov. Hansen, by far, had the better of the fight in this latest chapter of his bitter feud with the vile Colonel. Thanks to the assistance of the lumberjacks surrounding ringside, the so-called “Champion of Apartheid” Debeers was unable to escape Stan’s clutches. Things were indeed looking good for the Wildman from Borger, TX until he got into a confrontation with lumberjack Nord the Barbarian. Nord climbed up onto the apron and took a wild swing at Stan but missed. Hansen reciprocated in kind and connected with his haymaker which sent the Barbarian tumbling to the floor. The devious Debeers capitalized on the incident by sneaking up from behind and grabbing Hansen in a surprise School Boy Roll Up for the winning pinfall. The Colonel immediately headed back to the locker room with Nord leaving everyone to speculate as to whether or not Debeers had now joined Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee’s stable.

AWA Results (Circa Mid 80’s) - Dane County Coliseum, Madison, WI. Att: 4,495.

Announcers: Rod Trongard & Lord James Blears
Ring Announcer: “Dapper” Dave Prill
Referee: Doug Gilbert, Jim Bunning & Marty Miller

1. The newly formed tag team of “Beach Boy” Sonny Rogers & “California Kid” Tommy Jammer debuted with a victory over veterans Dennis Stamp & Tom “Rocky” Stone at 4:30. Things were going just fine for Jammer and Rogers until “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin and his valet Precious came down to ringside to have a looksee. Their presence OOR proved to be a major source of distraction. Stone and Stamp were able to execute several double team maneuvers to keep themselves in the match, but were whipped into one another from opposite corners of the ring. Rogers surprised the dazed Stamp with a Sunset Flip off the 2nd rope to score the winning pinfall.

2. “Playboy” Buddy Rose (w/ manageress “Sensational” Sherri Martel) topped “Jamming” Mitch Snow at 3:24. As always, Rose took exception to Dave Prill introducing him at a weight of 271 lbs and insisted that it should be 217 lbs. The Playboy also had his problems with several hecklers in the crowd who chanted “Pillsbury Dough Boy” throughout the contest. The preoccupied Rose was caught in pinning predicaments time and time again but managed to allude the three count. The Playboy finally got down to business and put Snow away with his Las Vegas Jackpot DDT to gain the 1-2-3.

3. Leon “The Baby Bull” White over Alexis Smirnoff at 8:14. Big Leon offered his opponent a polite and gentlemanly handshake to begin the match to which Smirnoff responded with a vicious eye rake. The Russian continued to hold the advantage until he jammed his shoulder into the turnbuckle on a botched corner charge. White plowed in with a huge Running Avalanche that pushed the ring back some two feet and then finished off Smirnoff with a Big Splash moments later.

4. Ricky Rice pulled off the upset of the night with a win over “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin at 6:07. Garvin discovered that what goes around comes around. Sonny Rogers and Tommy Jammer returned to ringside to take in the bout and diverted Gorgeous Jimmy's attention . It did not take long before Garvin’s valet Precious got into a heated altercation with the duo. Gorgeous Jimmy became caught up in the confrontation and was rolled up from behind by Rice for the pin.

5. In a special international contest, Jumbo Tsuruta beat Mr. Saito (w/ Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee) at 9:42. Fans were also treated to a special appearance by the legendary Giant Baba prior to the bell. The Japanese Superstar bowed to both grapplers, but was snubbed when Saito turned his back on him. Baba then gave Tsuruta some last minute advice which bolstered Jumbo’s points total. This evenly matched contest was decided when Tsuruta flipped out of his adversary’s Atomic Knee Drop attempt and caught Saito from behind in a Bridging Belly to Back Suplex for the three count.

6. “Olympian” Brad Rheingans & “Z Man” Tom Zenk defeated “Living Legend” Larry Zbyszko & his Ninja bodyguard Mr. Go at 13:27. This tag team match was ordered by AWA Commissioner Stanley Blackburn as a result of some bad blood between the four participants stemming from a recent card at the Cow Palace in San Francisco. Zbyszko tried to take advantage of Referee Marty Miller being toppled to the canvas by tossing his nunchuks into the ring for Mr. Go to use, but overshot the Ninja’s reach. Brad Rheingans quickly snatched them up off the mat and smashed Go in the noggin with them. Tne woozy official recovered in time to count the pinfall. (Zbyszko tried to intervine and break up the pin but was intercepted by a Tom Zenk Drop Kick).

7. Stan “The Lariat” Hansen over Nord the Barbarian in the Main Event at 6:56. The Wildman from Borger, Texas may be a fan favorite now, but his roughhouse style remains the same. Hansen has a personal grudge against Sheik Adnan’s stable after Nord interfered to give Colonel Debeers a win over the rugged cowboy in a Lumberjack Match at the Cow Palace. The Barbarian’s points total took a hit when he lost the services of his manager. El-Kaisee was ordered to the back by Referee Doug Gilbert prior to the bell, but the devious Sheik snuck back down ringside late in the bout disguised as a peanut vendor. Ironically enough, Nord was sent crashing into him when El-Kaisee climbed up onto the apron to interfere. The dazed Barbarian stumbled right into Hansen’s trademark Lariat finisher for the winning three count.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Hartford Civic Center, Hartford, CT



Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviews: Michael Cole
Ring Announcer: Kevin Kelly
Referees: Mike Sparks, Earl Hebner & Mike Chioda





Backstage Segment




Michael Cole opened the showed by addressing the situation between Jerry "The King" Lawler and Too Much (Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher & Scott "Too Hot" Taylor). While the King did admit to having a "soft spot in his heart" for young Christopher's career, he stopped short of acknowledging that he is, in fact, Brian's father. Cole pressed the issue, but Lawler steered the focus of the discussion back on the tag team's success or lack there of. Taylor, who seemed apprehensive throughout the conversation, suddenly piped up and predicted that Too Much would "get on a roll" beginning with a victory over Kaientai tonight. Lawler merely rolled his eyes at the boast. The King clearly has little patience for Taylor and even less confidence in his abilities. "If you really want to win tonight," Lawler responded, "then just stay out of Brian's way and let him wrestle the bulk of the match, okay ?" Taylor was peeved at the snub and walked off the set to end the interview.







1. Kaientai (Sho Funaki & Men's Teioh) w/ Yamaguchi-San vs. Too Much (Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher & Scott "Too Hot" Taylor)


Things got off to a shaky start this evening for the Oriental stable of Kaientai. Manager Yamaguchi-San was cutting a promo backstage in broken English when Jose Estrada Jr. of Los Boricuas barged in. The Latino faction has been feuding with Kaientai ever since the Judgment Day pay-per-view several months ago. The confrontation became heated with Estrada spouting off in Spanish and Yamaguchi-San countering in his native Japanese. Neither man could understand the other which made for a rather confusing and comical exchange, but Estrada's interruption did succeed in reducing Kaientai's score by 50 points. The real story of this match, however, was whether or not Scotty would heed the King's advice and let his partner carry the load. As we would soon discover, the answer to that question would not be to Lawler's liking. Too Much grabbed the early advantage thanks in large part to some flashy aerial maneuvers from Christopher, but the momentum abruptly swung in their opponents' favor once Taylor tagged in. Rather than maintaining the intense tempo that his partner had established, Scotty played to the crowd with his Hip Hop theatrics instead. The lapse in judgment allowed Teioh and Funaki to wrest control away. To compound the situation, Taylor refused to tag out when he had the opportunity to do so. No doubt intent on proving himself to Lawler, Scotty only made things worse by committing one gaff after another. The King himself ended up bailing Too Much out of their predicament. Men's Teioh was perched on the top rope and set to deliver what appeared to be a decisive Diving Splash when Lawler jumped from his seat at the announcers' table and pulled Scotty out of harm's way. Teioh crashed to the canvas and was pinned by Taylor moments later at 8:41. Scotty's subsequent exuberance and post-match celebration was cut short when the King entered the ring to chastise him. The two quickly came to blows with Christopher and Referee Mike Sparks being pressed into action to separate the combatants.







Backstage Segment - The Higher Power




Faarooq is speaking with a hooded figure in a dark room. The identity of the specter is concealed within the blackness of the chamber. "Have you spoken with Bradshaw yet ?" the phantom asks. Faarooq confirms that the meeting has taken place, but adds that he hasn't received an answer as of yet. "Give him an ultimatum," the mysterious figure instructs, "He is either for us, or he's against us. There is no middle ground." Suddenly another brawny figure enters the room whose identity is also cloaked in the darkness. The brawny hulk stands behind the hooded apparition. "Understood," Faarooq responds and then exits the room.







2. Falls Count Anywhere Match. Al Snow (w/ "Head" ) vs. "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal (w/ Hard Hat, Red Flannel Shirt and a highly noticable British Cockney Accent ??)


This feud has escalated over the past several weeks and has been surprisingly dominated by Regal thus far. It should be pointed out that Al was advised by doctors to postpone this match after sustaining a neck injury at the hands of the Real Man's Man during a house show last week from Corpus Christi, Texas. At that event, Snow sustained a Regal Neckbreaker. The injury was further aggravated by Tiger Ali Singh's Camel Clutch finisher. Revenge is a strong motivating factor, though, and Snow was intent on getting some. Despite being less than 100%, Al wrestled the match anyway and earned himself 100 bonus points right from the get go by spoiling his opponent's sneak attack attempt during his ring entrance. The injury would flare up once the match got under way. Cruel but effective, Regal centered his attack on the neck and wore Snow done by inflicting additional damage. The match ended up in the TV Crew Truck with Referee Earl Hebner scrambling to get himself into position and make the three count at 10:44 after Regal clobbered Al with a video monitor.







Backstage Segment




The ugliness between Scott Taylor and Jerry "The King" Lawler has reached it's breaking point. Despite all efforts to smooth things over and reconcile the two, Brian Christopher was unable to precipitate an amicable solution. Taylor challenges the King outright to a match at the Royal Rumble with the following stipulations: If he wins, then Lawler must come clean to the public regarding his relationship to Christopher, but if he loses, then he will quit Too Much to let Brian pursue a singles career. The King gladly accepts the terms.







3. Droz vs. Blackjack Windham


There is trouble afoot in the Blackjacks' camp these days. Blackjack Bradshaw has made some noise recently about disbanding the Texas tandem with each man going their separate way. To add to the drama, Faarooq, who was recently discharged from the Nation of Domination stable following a loss to the Rock at the Bad Blood pay-per-view, has expressed some interest in teaming up with Bradshaw in the future. If Barry Windham is, indeed, on the verge of being replaced, he is not going quietly and said as much to Michael Cole during a pre-match interview. The veteran from Sweetwater, Texas takes a lot of pride in following in his daddy Blackjack Mulligan's footsteps and reforming the famous Blackjack tag team legacy. Windham accentuated his position with a convincing win over Droz this evening. The winning pinfall came by way of a Flying Cowboy Lariat at 4:41.







Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office




Sitting across from Mr. McMahon's desk is none other than Bret "The Hitman" Hart ! The Boss thanks him for coming by this evening to meet with. "Let's not pull any punches, Bret," McMahon says. The remark draws both a nod and a smirk from the Hitman who might, perhaps, be recalling the last office encounter that he had with the WWF Chairman & CEO in Montreal. "I want you to be in the Royal Rumble," McMahon states. Hart quiet ponders the request for a moment, and then gives his answer. "No." Undeterred, the Boss continues, "Just think of the ratings ....... and the money that we'll both make if you were in it !" Bret looks around the office and then returns his attention to McMahon. "It's not about the money, Vince. It was never about the money. It's about you." McMahon refuses to back down, though, and persists, "You'll get a title match against Austin at WrestleMania if you win the Rumble. You can be the WWF Champion again ! What better way to make your return ?" Hart smiles. "I know that you're a man who is use to getting his way, but my answer is still no." McMahon sits back in his chair obviously disappointed. An awkward silence follows until Bret speaks up again. "I won't be in the Rumble, but I'll tell you what I will do. Put me in a tag match with my brother Owen against those two clowns the New Age Outlaws. That, I'll do." McMahon smiles. "Deal." The two men stand up and shake hands on it.







4. X-Pac of D-Generation X (w/ "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna) vs. "Lethal Weapon" Steve Blackman


Both of these competitors have had their problems recently with outside parties. X-Pac has been immersed in feuds with both Owen Hart and Tennessee Lee's stable of Southern Justice and Jeff Jarrett. On the flip side, Blackman has had his hands full contending with the "Precious" Paul Ellering's biker gang of thugs the Disciples of the Apocalypse. All of the aforementioned hostilities manifested themselves once more tonight to impact the outcome of this bout. Owen Hart interrupted X-Pac's pre-match promo to cost him 50 points, while Skull and 8-Ball of D.O.A. did likewise when they disrupted Blackman's popular glow-in-the-dark Escrima fighting sticks entrance. Jeff Jarrett's interference would ultimately prove to be the deciding factor. He raced down the aisle late in the match and shoved X-Pac off the top rope leading to a pinfall for Blackman at 5:12.







Backstage Segment - Mr. McMahon's Office




McMahon is still beaming over Bret Hart's upcoming appearance at the Royal Rumble even if it's not in the capacity that he had originally intended. The Boss knows that it's a big step in rebuilding a working relationship with the Hitman and bringing him back on board with the WWF. Vince's reverie is soon shattered by the arrival of his angry and distraught daughter Stephanie who accuses him of masterminding the Big Show and Big Boss Man's brutal assault on her boyfriend Test backstage at the Breslin Arena on last week's episode of Sunday Night Heat. Vince neither confirms nor denies the allegations. His attempts to console Stephanie, however, only succeed in making her more upset. She states that Test wants to face the Big Show at the Royal Rumble. The request is granted. Vince then asserts his authority by informing her that he stands behind the Big Show and that he will be in his corner for the match. Undaunted, Stephanie folds her arms defiantly and responds by telling him that she will also be at the Royal Rumble - in Test's corner !







5. Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chairs Tag Team Match. The Hardy Boyz (Matt & Jeff) w/ Michael Hayes vs. Edge & Christian of the Brood (w/ "The Vampire Warrior" Gangrel) vs. the New Midnight Express ("Bodacious" Bart Gunn & "Bombastic" Bob Holly) w/ Jim Cornette


This match was ordained by Mr. McMahon to determine the number one contender's position for a title match against the WWF Tag Team Champion Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher). A briefcase is suspended from the rafters above the ring containing an open contract for the championship match. The first team to collect the briefcase wins the match. All three duos bolstered their respective points totals with good promos. Ladder Modifiers also came into play with the Matt & Jeff Hardy benefiting the most in that regard. Oddly enough, the outcome of the match would come down to some outside interference gone awry. Hardy Boyz' manager Michael Hayes may have had the best of intentions when he snuck into the ring and pushed over a ladder that Edge was climbing in an effort to retrieve the briefcase, however it collided with Matt Hardy's ladder thereby also sending him toppling to the canvas in the maelstrom. Bodacious Bart capitalized on the chaos by scaling a third ladder in the rubble and procuring the briefcase enroute to victory at 12:18. The New Midnight Express will challenge the Headbangers for the tag team titles on the next episode of RAW.




Royal Rumble Promo










The ad boasts 30 competitors; 28 from the current roster including Chyna, the first woman to ever compete in a Royal Rumble, as well as 2 from the WWF's illustrious past. The winner will face "Stone Cold" Steve Austin for the WWF Championship at WrestleMania.

WWF Intercontinental Championship Match - Challenger Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X vs. the Rock of the Nation of Domination




6. "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqueline)


Mr. McMahon did not appreciate nor forget being trapped in Shamrock's grueling Ankle Lock finisher on the last edition of RAW. The Boss dispatched his corporate team of Big Trouble (Big Show & the Big Boss Man) to ringside to insure that Shamrock would pay for his actions. McMahon's plan was short-circuited, however, by the arrival of Test and Val Venis who raced down the aisle to take out Big Trouble in a wild free-for-all on the floor. Amidst the melee, Ken's little sister Ryan also got into it with Jacqueline OOR. In lieu of the disorder, the World's Most Dangerous Man was able to maintain his composure and win the match with an Ankle Lock submission at 6:25.







Backstage Segment




DX members Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Chyna and X-Pac are all conversing backstage about the Royal Rumble. Despite being in street clothes and still on crutches, Triple H assures his cohorts that he'll not only be ready to go, but that he'll also defeat the Rock for the WWF Intercontinental Championship. Ahmed Johnson, who is on his way to the ring to face Mankind, overhears him say this. Johnson stops, looks at Triple H, and laughs. "Are you talking about this year's Royal Rumble, Helmsley, or next year's, because you sure as hell don't look ready to me !" A silent but intense standoff ensues between the two. "Get out of my face," Johnson mutters, "Unlike you, I've got a match to wrestle tonight."







7. Mankind (w/ Mr. Socko) vs. Ahmed Johnson of the Nation of Domination


Johnson, the newest member of the Nation, tried to set the stage for a successful debut in this evening's Main Event by disrupting Mankind's promo before the match. The interruption did cost Foley 50 points, but that paled in comparison to what D-Generation X had in store for Ahmed. Triple H, Chyna, and X-Pac all jumped Johnson backstage and inflicted 200 points worth of damage. The assault was capped off by a devastating Pedigree from Helmsley on the concrete. Johnson wrestled the match nonetheless, but his performance was clearly impaired by the battering that he had sustained beforehand. D'Lo Brown tried to lend his fellow Nation stable mate a hand by distracting Referee MIke Sparks during the match and allowing Johnson to cheat, but Mankind prevailed in the end by rolling through Ahmed's Running Powerslam to gain the winning three count at 9:41.




After the match, an irate Johnson closed the show with an ominous message for Triple H that including the Nation's trademark motto. "Helmsley, you think that you're ready for the Rock at the Royal Rumble ? Well, you better be more than ready ! In fact, you better have eyes in the back of your head because you're going to need them ! I'll be there, and I'll personally guarantee that the Rock leaves that ring with the WWF Intercontinental belt - By Whatever Means Necessary !" And with that we fade to black with the WWF logo.

WWF Royal Rumble Pay-Per-View Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Joe Louis Arena, Detroit, MI


Commentators: Michael Cole & Jim Cornette
Interviewers: Kevin Kelly
Ring Announcer: Howard Finkel
Referees: Mike Sparks, Jack Doan, Tim White & Mike Chioda



1. Scott "Too Hot" Taylor vs. Jerry "The King" Lawler


Over the past several months, Jerry Lawler has been resoundingly critical of Taylor during his commentary from the announcers' table. Furthermore, the King has found Scotty to be less than a worthy tag team partner for Brian "Too Sexy" Christopher of whom he thinks quite highly. The situation reached its breaking point last week in Hartford, CT when Taylor and the King came to blows following a tag team match between Kaientai and Too Much. After the scuffle, Scotty issued a challenge to Lawler to face him in a match at the Royal Rumble with the following stipulations: If the King won then Taylor agreed to quit Too Much and let Brian pursue a solo career, however if Scotty won then Lawler would have to come clean with the public regarding his relationship to Christopher. Too Sexy himself was at ringside to take in the match, but stayed in a neutral corner so as not to show favoritism to either man. That being said, the King looked a little rusty coming out of retirement to grace the ring once more. Although he had a wealth of knowledge and veteran savvy to draw from, Lawler chose instead to rely upon cheating. The King came with an eyelash of scoring a pinfall, albeit a tainted one, with the assistance of the ropes and a handful of tights, but Taylor managed to kick out. In the end, Scotty pulled out a victory by rolling through Lawler's Flying Cross Body at 6:25. After the bell, the King reluctantly took the microphone and admitting to being "related" to Christopher. Neither member of Too Much was satisfied with that explanation and insisted that Lawler elaborate further. Grudgingly, the King stated that he was, indeed, Brian's father and said that he "only wanted the best for his son." The crowd, who had boo'd Lawler during the contest, quickly forgave the King and cheered when father and son hugged in the ring.




2. Test (w/ Stephanie McMahon) vs. The Big Show (w/ Vince McMahon)


Mr. McMahon had made it quite clear that he does not approve of Test courting his daughter. Test was suspiciously jumped in the locker room by Big Trouble (Big Show & the Big Boss Man) during a broadcast of Sunday Night Heat after sending a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates to Stephanie for Valentine's Day. In spite of her meddling father's objections, Stephanie has defiantly chosen to stand by her man. Right from the get go, something seemed amiss in the Corporation's camp. A roving cameraman caught a backstage argument between the Big Show and the Boss before the match. The Show said that he didn't want to be involved in McMahon's "family business" which drew a tongue lashing from the CEO. McMahon scolded Big Show and reminded him that he was "already involved". The rebuke and infighting cost the Show some points, as did a pre-match attack by Test who clobbered him with a chair shot during his entrance. The bout itself ended without resolution when both competitors were counted out by Referee Jack Doan at 7:50 as they battled on the floor around ringside.




3. Owen Hart & Bret "The Hitman" Hart vs. The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg Jesse James & "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn)


The Hart brothers were clearly the favorites in this tag match tonight. The crowd went bonkers when the Hitman's music came over the PA and brought Bret and Owen down to the ring together. The fans have waited a long time for Bret to return to the WWF. This evening mark's the Hitman's first appearance in the ring since the infamous Montreal incident. Road Dogg and Billy Gunn are no strangers to big entrances themselves, however theirs was interrupted by yet another skirmish between Mr. McMahon and the Big Show. The Boss was obviously seething over the inconclusive results of the last match and had no problems voicing his disappointment to the Show. While the pre-match hoopla may not have gone the Outlaws' way, the Match Modifiers did. They received 50 points for Savvy while the Harts received no points for Strength. Gunn and Road Dogg also benefited from the presence (and interference) of fellow DX member Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Triple H kept his word and returned with a vengeance from his hyperextended knee in time for the Royal Rumble. Helmsley clearly had an axe to grind with Owen Hart and has pulled no punches in blaming him for the injury during his absence. Triple H blinded Owen with a handful of powder leading to a Billy Gunn roll up and a victory for the New Age Outlaws at 9:45.




4. WWF Intercontinental Title Match. Challenger Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X vs. Champion the Rock of the Nation of Domination


Helmsley cut a great backstage promo with Kevin Kelly beforehand to earn himself 75 extra points to work with, but gave it all back and then some when the Rock thwarted his sneak attack attempt during Howard Finkel's ring introductions. The real story of this match, though, was Ahmed Johnson. The newest member of the Nation of Domination was looking for a little payback after being jumped by Triple H and his D-Generation X cohorts on last week's edition of Monday Night RAW. During his injury hiatus, Helmsley grew fond of interferring in DX matches with his crutches, so perhaps it was karma when Johnson raced down to ringside and smashed Triple H over the back with one while the Rock distracted Referee Mike Chioda. The Brahma Bull then added the People's Elbow for good measure to score the pinfall at 14:43. Your winner and still WWF Intercontinental Champion - the Rock !




5. The Royal Rumble.


While similar to a Battle Royal in nature, the Royal Rumble begins with only two competitors in the ring rather than all 30 at once. The remaining 28 competitors enter in two minute intervals as determined by a lottery. Participants are eliminated by going over the top rope with both feet touching the floor. The last wrestler remaining in the ring shall be declared the winner and receive a title match against WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania.


The match began with Al Snow and D'Lo Brown of the Nation of Domination. Order of entry thereafter:


Owen Hart, Christian of the Brood, Edge of the Brood, Chyna (the first woman to ever compete in a Royal Rumble), Prince Albert, the Big Show, Kurrgan, Hawk of L.O.D. 2000, Jake "The Snake" Roberts (!), Val Venis, 8 Ball of the Disciples of the Apocalypse, the Undertaker, Skull of the Disciples of the Apocalypse, Irwin R, Shyster (!), Scorpio, Dick Togo of Kaientai, Recon of Armageddon, WWF Intercontinental Champion the Rock of the Nation of Domination, Vader, "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock, Blackjack Windham, the Big Boss Man, the Godfather of the Nation of Domination, "A Real Man's Man" Steven Regal, Blackjack Bradshaw, WWF Tag Team Champion Thrasher of the Headbangers, Test and "The Vampire Warrior" Gangrel of the Brood.


Order of elimination:


D'Lo Brown by Owen Hart, Edge by Owen Hart, Kurrgan by Owen Hart, Jake "the Snake" Roberts by Owen Hart, Hawk by Al Snow, Prince Albert by 8 Ball, Christian by Scorpio, Recon by Owen Hart, Vader by Recon, Big Show by the Rock, 8 Ball by Val Venis, Skull by Dick Togo, Irwin R. Shyster by Blackjack Windham, Owen Hart by Blackjack Windham, the Big Boss Man by Steven Regal, Val Venis by Steven Regal, Scorpio by Blackjack Windham, Chyna by the Undertaker, the Rock by Test, Al Snow by Steven Regal, Steven Regal by Ken Shamrock, Test by Blackjack Bradshaw, the Undertaker by Blackjack Bradshaw, Thrasher by Dick Togo, Dick Togo by Ken Shamrock, Blackjack Bradshaw by Ken Shamrock.


Final Four: Ken Shamrock, Blackjack Windham, Gangrel and the Godfather


Order of elimination:


Blackjack Windham by the Godfather, the Godfather by Gangrel, Ken Shamrock by Gangrel.



The winner of the Royal Rumble at 37:59 - "The Vampire Warrior" Gangrel of the Brood !



Having the coveted "30 Slot" in the lottery certainly helped Gangrel, as did Edge who slunk back down to ringside and pulled the top rope down to assist in Ken Shamrock's elimination. (Note - though gone from the WWF for quite some time, IRS was soundly boo'd - and relished every minute of it !) And with that we fade to black with the WWF logo.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Corestates Center, Philadelphia, PA


Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler

Interviews: Michael Cole

Ring Announcer: Lilian Garcia

Referees: Tim White, Teddy Long, Jim Korderas & Chad Patton




1. Jeff Hardy (w/ Matt Hardy) vs. Mr. Aguila (aka Essa Rios)


This bout never took place. Jeff Hardy dropped a bombshell when he disclosed to Michael Cole in a pre-match interview backstage that he and brother Matt were firing their manager Michael Hayes. Hayes gained a wealth of tag team knowledge and experience from his storied history with the Fabulous Freebirds, however his success as a wrestler has not carried over into his managerial career. Hayes blundered in a big way during the Triple Threat Tables, Ladders and Chairs match on the last episode of RAW. The contest determined who would be the number one contenders to the WWF Tag Team Champion Headbangers and featured the New Midnight Express, Edge & Christian of the Brood and the Hardy Boyz. As the match reached its conclusion, Hayes pushed Edge's ladder over into Matt Hardy's thereby eliminated them both and enabling Bart Gunn to retrieve the briefcase containing an open contract with the Headbangers that dangled above the ring from the rafters. Apparently Hayes was skulking in the wings and eavesdropping on the interview. The former Freebird suddenly rushed onto the set and clobbered Jeff with a couple of vicious chair shots. "You didn't fire me, Hardy !" Hayes shouted, "I fired you and your loser brother !" Hardy was too badly injured from the assault to wrestle Aguila tonight. He is expected to be out of action for a couple of weeks.




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


Mr. McMahon made an unexpected appearance on the ramp after the match introductions. The Chairman & CEO of the WWF berated Prince Albert for his "poor showing" and "lack of effort" in the Royal Rumble. (Albert was the 6th man to be eliminated from the ring). McMahon said that he "expected a lot more from a 6' 7" 330lb monster". The Boss then talked about "Ruthless Aggression" (one of his favorite terms in the wrestling business) and declared that Albert was sorely lacking in that department. McMahon closed with an ominous warning. He reminded Albert that there were "a hundred other wrestlers out there who would gladly take his place on the roster" and told him that he had better "shape up fast". The reprimand cost Albert 75 points for this contest, but more importantly, it seemed to throw him out of sync for the entire match. On the other side of the ring, the wealthy Indian Playboy Tiger Ali Singh bolstered his total with a huge in-ring promo that earned him 100 points. Singh's chances were further enhanced when Babu landed a blackjack shot from behind on Albert. The worst was still yet to come. The Big Boss Man was dispatched to ringside by Mr. McMahon and laid out Albert with his trademark Sidewalk Slam while Referee Teddy Long was busy arguing with Babu. Long finally turned around to find Singh making the cover and counted the 1-2-3 at 5:28. After the bell, Test raced in to run off the Boss Man.




3. WWF Tag Team Title Match. The Challengers, the Midnight Express ("Bodacious" Bart Gunn & "Bombastic" Bob Holly) w/ Jim Cornette vs. the Champion Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher)


The New Midnight Express were awarded this opportunity by Mr. McMahon after winning the afore-mentioned Triple Threat Tables, Ladders & Chair Match. The Champs brought their A-Game with them to Philly and racked up valuable points with a great backstage promo prior to the contest followed by a sneak attack on the Express during Lilian Garcia's ring introductions. Cornette was able to connect with a tennis racquet smash along the way to assist his team, but it was not enough to bring them a victory. Thrasher pinned Holly after Bombastic Bob sustained the Stage Dive (Mosh Powerbomb/Thrasher Leg Drop from the top rope combo) at 7:59. The Headbangers successfully retain the WWF Tag Team Championship.




4. The "World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock vs Edge of the Brood (w/ Christian)


Shamrock has been chomping at the bit to get his hands on Edge ever since the Royal Rumble. Edge's interference helped Gangrel eliminate the World's Most Dangerous Man and win the contest to get a title shot at WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania. Everything went Shamrock's way tonight. It all began when "Lethal Weapon" Steve Blackman interrupted Edge's pre-match interview with Michael Cole backstage. The intrusion cost Edge 50 points. In contrast, Shamrock gained 50 points by rolling on his Technical Modifier. Shamrock tacked on an additional 100 points by thwarting his opponent's sneak attack before the bell. Things went from bad to worse for Edge when Christian tried to toss Brass Knuckles to him in the ring after Referee Chad Patton had been spilled to the canvas. The Knucks sailed over Edge's head and right into the fortuitous hands of Shamrock who wasted no time in delivering a loaded roundhouse right. Patton shook out the cobwebs to find Shamrock making the cover on the KO'd Edge and counted the pin at 6:07.




5. Faarooq vs. Blackjack Windham


To honor his father Blackjack Mulligan's legacy, Barry Windham has been trying to keep the Blackjacks tag team in tact despite Faarooq's constant meddling. The fans' seemed to be behind Windham and cheered when he disrupted Faarooq's in-ring promo to deliver one of his own. The real drama began when Blackjack Bradshaw ambled down to ringside and camped out in a neutral corner so as not to cast his support to either man. Bradshaw may have tipped his hand, however, when he distracted Windham after Barry delivered a crushed Superplex to Faarooq from the top rope. Rather than going for a pin, Barry bailed from the ring to confront Bradshaw on the floor. Faarooq soon followed to join in the fray. He and Windham slugged it out around ringside while Bradshaw returned to the back. Referee Tim White counted both competitors out at 6:22.




6. Dude Love vs. "The Big Red Machine" Kane (w/ Paul Bearer)


Despite being the heel in this match, the fans went wild (and rewarded the Big Red Machine with 125 bonus points) when flames blazed forth from all four ring posts upon Kane's command during the match introductions. Dude Love tried to counter with a comical promo, but trouble was afoot when "HBK" Shawn Michaels came out and insisted that it was his mic time instead. The two tussled over the microphone with Dude Love eventually prying it from Michaels' grasp. The incident would come home to roost at the conclusion of this match. HBK slipped into the ring and rang the Dude's bell with a microphone shot to the noggin while Referee Teddy Long was being distracted by the macabre Paul Bearer. Long turned around to find Kane making the cover on the dazed Dude and counted the pin at 11:35.




7. Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X (w/ "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna) vs. Ahmed Johnson of the Nation of Domination (w/ D'Lo Brown & "The Strongest Man in the World" Mark Henry)


Helmsley demanded this match after Ahmed Johnson's interference helped the Rock retain the Intercontinental Championship at the Royal Rumble. Triple H was pinned by the People's Elbow after Johnson bashed Helmsley over the back with a crutch. D'Lo Brown set the tone immediately by interrupting Helmsley's interview with Michael Cole before the introductions. (Brown would have an even greater impact on the proceedings later on.) As it turned out, Johnson also had his problems delivering a promo. Vader, who has has been a constant thorn in the side of the Nation of Domination, got into it with the newest member of the stable backstage. The confrontation sparked a tense standoff with both parties issuing challenges to one another before going their separate ways. Perhaps Johnson was preoccupied by what had transpired with Vader earlier, but he struggled mightily against Helmsley in tonight's Main Event. Triple H carried the fight and appeared as though he might achieve his revenge when he planted his foe with a Spinning Spinebuster off the ropes. Unfortunately for Helmsley, Referee Jim Korderas was toppled to the mat by the maneuver and unable to make a count on the subsequent pin attempt. Mark Henry then entered the ring and was able to deliver a crushing Powerslam to Triple H before being KO'd by a chair shot from Chyna. D'Lo Brown followed with his (loaded ?) chest protector enhanced Lo Down (Frog Splash) from the top rope on the prone Helmsley. Ahmed Johnson crawled over to make the cover with Korderas shaking off his stupor to count the pin at 14:30. The controversial finish precipitated a flurry of run-ins. Shawn Michaels, X-Pac, "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn and Road Dogg joined the fray for DX as did the Rock, and the Godfather from the Nation. The program ended with an all-out Pier 6 Brawl between D-Generation X and the Nation of Domination in the ring as we faded to black with the WWF logo.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Market Square Arena, Indianapolis, IN


Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler

Ring Announcer: Kevin Kelly

Interviewer: Michael Cole

Referees: Tim White, Teddy Long, Earl Hebner & Jim Korderas




1. Hardcore Match. Al Snow vs. Chainsaw Charlie


This bout never actually took place. Al Snow was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time when he inadvertently walked in on a clandestine meeting backstage between the Undertaker and Faarooq. The Deadman has been covertly trying to add members to his Ministry as of late and is particularly interested in recruiting Faarooq and Bradshaw to join the stable. Snow realized that this conversation was not meant for his ears and quickly turned to leave. Unfortunately for Al, his escape was thwarted by a massive roadblock named "Viscera" who bore a strange resemblance to that of former Men on a Mission tag team member Mabel. Viscera lifted Snow off the ground in a double overhead chokehold and tossed him away like a rag doll. Al sustained a neck injury in the process and was unable to compete against Chainsaw Charlie tonight. He is expected to be out of action for two weeks.




2. L.O.D. 2000 (Hawk & Animal) w/ Sunny vs. Armageddon (Recon & Sniper)


Both teams took turns spoiling each others pre-match promos before the contest ever got under way. Once it did, L.O.D. 2000 quickly took charge. Aided by a roll on their Savvy Modifier, Animal and Hawk used their wealth of tag team experience to great advantage. The Legion of Doom seemed poised for victory when Shawn Michaels and Hunter Hearst Helmsley of D-Generation X suddenly raced in and laid out both members of Armageddon with their respective finishers. The attack was no doubt in response to Armageddon helping Mr. McMahon defeat HBK in a First Blood Match at he Bad Blood pay-per-view. Recon, who sustained Michaels' Sweet Chin Music, was covered by Hawk for a pin attempt however Referee Teddy Long called for the bell and disqualified L.O.D. 2000 for the outside interference. The time of the match was 7:25.




3. Blackjack Bradshaw (w/ Blackjack Windham) vs. Chainz of the Disciples of the Apocalypse (w/ Manager "Precious" Paul Ellering)


Desperate and determined to keep the Blackjacks tag team in tact, Windham interfered frequently to help Bradshaw win this evening. Chainz was finally able to corral the two big cowboys together in a "meeting of the minds". The mighty noggin knocker sent Windham flying off the apron and crashing hard to the floor below. "Precious" Paul Ellering was then able to sneak up from behind and clobber the already dazed Bradshaw with a Halliburton smash to the back enabling Chainz to gain the pinfall at 6:15. After the bell, Windham went to check on his partner but Bradshaw wanted nothing to do with him and abruptly left the ring.




4. "The Ninth Wonder of the World" Chyna of D-Generation X (w/ Hunter Hearst Helmsley) vs. Nicole Bass (w/ WWF Ladies Champion Sable)


Since her arrival in the WWF, Bass has had an immediate impact on the Ladies Division. She was instrumental in helping Sable win the title from Chyna during a Fatal Four Way on an episode of RAW several weeks ago and injured Ivory in the process. The Ninth Wonder of the World was looking for a little payback tonight, and managed to achieve it to some degree. Wrestling holds were virtually non-existent in this contest. Chyna out-brawled her opponent and appeared to have the match sewn up after delivering a devastating Pedigree to Bass, but Sable had other ideas. The Ladies Champ ran in and broke up the subsequent pin attempt by bashing Chyna with her Championship Belt to draw the DQ from Referee Jim Korderas at 5:37.




5. Steel Cage Match. Test (w/ Stephanie McMahon) vs. WWF Hardcore Champion The Big Boss Man


The Hardcore Title was not on the line tonight. Mr. McMahon dispatched his bungling associates Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco to ringside to insure a Boss Man victory, but their meddling would prove to have the opposite effect. Although the Boss Man didn't appear to need any help, Brisco was determined to lend some anyway. He tried to toss the Boss Man his nightstick, but the weapon ricocheted off the side of the cage and hit Pat Patterson in the head. Brisco immediately checked on his dazed buddy allowing Stephanie to confiscate the nightstick from off of the floor. She then tossed it into the ring, and more importantly, into the waiting hands of Test who clobbered his adversary with it and escaped the cage to victory at 12:33.




6. European Title Match. Challenger Jeff Jarrett (w/ Manager Tennessee Lee) vs. Champion The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust (w/ Valet Luna Vachon)


Both competitors cut great promos before the match to boost their respective points totals, but this match would, for better or worse, come down to outside interference. Luna erred in big way when she reached into the ring and accidentally tripped up Goldust to turn the momentum in the challenger's favor. Tennessee Lee then did his job by distracting Referee Teddy Long to allow Jarrett to clobber the Champ over the noggin with an El Kabong Guitar Smash. Long turned around to find the challenger making the cover and counted the pin despite the guitar debris strewn about all over the ring. Your winner and neeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwww European Champion at 9:11 - Jeff Jarrett !




7. Mankind vs. "HBK" Shawn Michaels of D-Generation X (w/ Hunter Hearst Helmsley)


Mankind demanded this match after HBK cost Dude Love a loss to "The Big Red Machine" Kane on RAW last week due to a microphone smash to the forehead. Michaels tried it again this week but with far less successful results. HBK cut a promo in the ring prior to the bout and then rushed at Mankind with the mic, but was met by a boot to the midsection followed by a Double Arm DDT. Michaels rebounded to take control of the contest but had difficulty putting his adversary away. To make matters worse, Bret "The Hitman" Hart and Owen Hart came down to ringside which proved to clearly be a distraction for both HBK and Triple H. It did not take long for Owen and Helmsley to mix it up on the floor. In the meantime, Michaels, bolstered by a big roll on his Savvy Modifier, turned another would be Mankind Double Arm DDT into s Small Package Cradle. With Referee Earl Hebner distracted by the melee OOR, Bret Hart snuck in and reversed HBK's cradle. Hebner turned around to find Mankind on top and counted the winning pin at 13:02. After the bell, Michaels sat up and smiled at Bret who did likewise as he was returning to the back. Those two weren't the only ones who were grinning at the finish. Mr. McMahon was apparently watching the match on a monitor in his office and was beaming from ear to ear at the outcome. "Priceless !" the Boss exclaimed, "I smell a match ........ and lots of money!" And with that we fade to black with the WWF logo.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) –Thibodaux Civic Center, Thibodaux, LA. Att: 3,702.

Commentators: Jim Ross & “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Ring Announcer: Reeser Bowden
Referees: Joel Armstrong, Alfred Neely & Jerry Usher

1. Brett Sawyer over Johnny West at 8:15. Sawyer brought a bad attitude to the ring with him and took it out on his opponent. This match would have been over much sooner had Sawyer not kept yanking West up to break Referee Joel Armstrong’s pin counts and administer additional punishment. West was out on his feet by the time he caught a Flying Drop Kick to the mush for the 1-2-3.

A post-match interview between Brett Sawyer and Jim Ross was interrupted by “White Lightning” Tim Hoerner. (Hoerner has beaten Sawyer twice over the past couple of week with both matches ending in controversial fashion.) White Lightning suggested that the two meet again inside the squared circle but his offer went unaccepted. Sawyer insisted that Hoerner had “paid off” the referees in their previous bouts prompting a heated exchange between the two.

2. Tommy Rogers of the Fantastics was well received by the fans and responded with a convincing victory over “Broadway” Joe Malcolm. As usual, Broadway Joe’s ego proved to be far superior to his actual wrestling ability. Rogers dominated this contest from start to finish before putting Malcom away with a Flying Body Press at 4:43.

3. Despite playing the heel in his bout against the Angel of Death, Perry Jackson of Texarcana could generate absolutely no heat whatsoever and was penalized accordingly. A Flying Clothesline from the 2nd rope was good enough to put Jackson’s shoulders to the mat for the three count at 3:06.

4. There was no winner in the contest pitting Buddy Roberts (w/ fellow Freebird Michael P.S. Hayes) and Shaska Whatley who was seconded by his Jive Tones tag team partner Tiger Conway Jr. The respective corner men refrained from interfering until the action moved to the floor. Hayes combined with Roberts to administer a Double Verticle Suplex onto Whatley OOR prompting Conway to join the fray. All four men were battled it out around ringside when Referee Joel Armstrong’s ten count ran out on both Whatley and Roberts. The time of the match was 7:04.

5. Devastation Incorporated’s “Wild” Bill Irwin upset “Gentleman” Chris Adams with some help from his shady manager. Adams was setting himself on the turnbuckle to deliver a high risk leap when he was suddenly shoved from behind by General Skandor Akbar. Adams crashed awkwardly to the mat and was pinned by Irwin moments later. To make matters worse, Referee Alfred Neely employed a rather fast count to seal Adam’s fate.

6. The First Family of Professional Wrestling’s Rick Steiner & Terry Taylor defeated Savannah Jack & UWF Rookie of the Year Shane Douglas in tag team action at 8:53. Credit TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert for this tainted victory. Gilbert blinded Douglas with a handful of powder to the eyes while Shane was perched atop the second rope and dishing out ten punches to Terry Taylor in the corner. Taylor then added a foot on the ropes for additional leverage to gain the pinfall on Douglas.

7. Former UWF Heavyweight Champ “Dr. Death” Steve Williams beat “Ugandan Giant” Kamala in the Main Event at 21:41. This was a nip and tuck battle all the way with neither man being able to perform their finishers (Williams’ Oklahoma Stampede Running Powerslam & Kamala’s Ugandan Splash) . The bout came down to a missed corner charge with Kamala crashing into the ringpost and staggering backward into a Schoolboy Roll Up for the winning three count.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Tulsa Convention Center, Tulsa, OK. Att: 3,714.

Commentators: Jim Ross & "Cowboy" Bill Watts
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referee: Carl Fergie, Tommy Gilbert & Edward Faulk

1. Brett Sawyer & “Gorgeous” Gary Young defeated Bobby Perez & Johnny West in our opening match. Apparently the fans didn’t care much for Sawyer’s new attitude nor his choice of tag team partners. Young and Sawyer drew big time heat in Tulsa and were rewarded with a nice bonus of heel points as a result. Their opponents could muster little in the way of competition in a very one-sided contest. Sawyer pinned Perez with a Diving Cross Body Press from the top rope at 4:33.

2. Devastation Incorporated’s Eli the Eliminator (w/ General Skandor Akbar) beat “Raging Greek” Mike Pappas at 3:49. The veteran Pappas had way too much savvy to fall for Eli’s phony handshake offer to kick off the bout. In fact, the Raging Greek proved to be quite a handful for his much larger adversary. Enter Skandor Akbar who slipped some sort of foreign object into Eli’s hand while the two were conferring in the corner. Eli inserted the object into his right arm pad while Akbar distracted Referee Tommy Gilbert and pinned Pappas with a Loaded Clothesline off the ropes moments later.

3. The tag team contest pitting the Lightning Express (Brad Armstrong & “White Lightning” Tim Hoerner) against the Cuban Hitmen (Gustavo Mendoza & David “Fidel” Sierra) yielded no winner. “Gorgeous” Gary Young and Brett Sawyer returned to ringside to stir up some trouble. Sawyer, who has been engaged in a feud with Tim Hoerner as of late, baited White Lightning into a confrontation on the floor. The situation quickly escalated into a wild six man free-for-all around ringside. Referee Edward Faulk threw the match out and officially declared it a “No Contest” at 4:53.

4. Chavo Guerrero bested the big Russian Kortsia Korchenko at 7:54. Both grapplers received favorable rolls on the modifers. Chavo’s points total was boosted by his speed while Korchenko received a bonus for his strength. In the end, Guerrero would win out and pin his foe with a Moonsault Body Block off the top rope.

5. The Super Ninja (w/ General Skandor Akbar) defeated Tulsa’s own Steve Cox via DQ at 11:35. This fairly even match up featured a lot of twists and turns before finally being decided in rather dubious fashion. The Ninja appeared to take a few running steps and throw himself over the top rope following a Flying Back Elbow Smash from his opponent. Citing the Top Rope Rule in the UWF, Referee Tommy Gilbert called for the bell and disqualified Cox amidst a chorus of boos from the crowd.

6. Introduced by Joe Bryan as hailing "From Every Girl's Dream", the First Family of Professional Wrestling’s “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert (w/ Missy Hyatt) resorted to devious means to retain his coveted Televison Championship against Savannah Jack. Gilbert threw a fireball into his challenger’s face while Referee Edward Faulk was arguing with Missy Hyatt. Faulk finally turned around to find Savannah writhing in agony on the mat. Unaware of what had happened, the official deemed him unable to continue and awarded the match to Gilbert at 9:22.

7. In the Main Event, Lord Humongous over Sting via Count Out at 17:42. Recent rumours of Humongous joining General Skandor Akbar’s Devasatation Incorporated may have finally been dispelled after the heel stable interjected themselves and altered the outcome of this bout. Eli the Eliminator and the Super Ninja returned to ringside and milled about on the floor waiting for an opportunity to strike. The Ninja directly caused Sting’s count out with a Low Blow Mule Kick during OOR action while Eli kept Referee Carl Fergie occupied. Humongous may have had his hand raised in victory, but he was clearly unappreciative of Devastation Incoporated’s help. He planted the Ninja with a Powerbomb and then flattened Eli with a Chokeslam when the heel duo entered the ring to recruit him for their stable. Skandor Akbar then raced in from the back and also received a Chokeslam for his trouble as the fans roared in approval.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Muskogee Civic Center, Muskogee, OK. Att: 3,223.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Michael P.S. Hayes
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referee: Ronnie West, Alfred Neely & Jerry Usher

1. Veteran Art Crews defeated Mike Boyette in our opening contest at 6:03. Crews was cutting a brilliant promo with Jim Ross prior to the match when “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan suddenly walked onto the set. Hacksaw praised Crews’ talents and encouraged him to keep up the good work in the UWF. Art received a nice bonus for Duggan’s endorsement, but seemed a little annoyed to have his interview interrupted. The always colorful Boyette showed everyone what he thought of Hacksaw’s comments by plugging his nose and waving a hand in front of his face. Crews curiously used a couple of running tackles from a three point stance (ala Jim Duggan) on Boyette to set up a Swinging Neckbreaker for the pinfall.

(Note - Michael P.S. Hayes suddenly left the announcers’ table at this juncture of the program to go backstage leaving Jim Ross to handle the commentary duties by himself for the next couple of matches.)

2. “Cuban Assassin” David “Fidel” Sierra (w/ “Cuban Hitman” Gustavo Mendoza pinned “UWF Rookie of the Year” Shane Douglas at 6:00. Sierra wasted no time in trying to gain the advantage by attacking his opponent while Douglas was climbing through the ropes for the match introductions. The real story of this bout was Mendoza who bashed Shane from behind with his Cuban Flag while Sierra distracted Referee Alfred Neely. The Cuban Assassin then pounced on the dazed Douglas to pull off the upset.

3. “Time Keeper” Mike George bolstered his points total by berating both the city of Muskogee and opponent Tommy Rogers of the Fantastics in a scathing pre-match tirade with Jim Ross. In customary fashion, the Timekeeper ended his remarks by boldly predicting that he would defeat Rogers in five minutes or less. While his timing may have been a bit off, George did go on to beat Tommy via Count Out at 11:08 thanks to a Low Blow OOR.

4. The dubious duo of Brett Sawyer & “Gorgeous” Gary Young beat their arch rivals the Lightning Express (“White Lightning” Tim Hoerner & Brad Armstrong) by Count Out in tag team action at 8:20. This feud began with a couple of controversial victories by White Lightning over Sawyer in singles competition that ultimately turned Brett heel. Young and Sawyer combined to slam Hoerner through the time keeper’s table while Referee Ronnie West was sending Brad Armstrong back to his corner. White Lightning was too badly injured to make West’s subsequent ten count after the dirty double team.

5. We have a war on our hands between Lord Humongous and General Skandor Akbar’s Devastation Incorporated ! Humongous, who spurned Akbar’s attempts to woo him into joining the heel stable, was scheduled to take on the Libyan but the bout never took place. Eli the Eliminator, Bad Leroy Brown and “Wild” Bill Irwin of Devastation Inc. all rushed the ring and joined their stablemate the Libyan in putting a beat down on Humongous prior to the bell. Sting and “Gentleman” Chris Adams raced out with folding chairs to make the save and chase off the heels. Since the match never officially started, Referee Alfred Neely had no choice but to call it a “No Contest”.

6. Nothing was settled in the latest battle between Terry Taylor and “Gentleman” Chris Adams. These two former friends and tag team partners have been embroiled in a bitter feud ever since Taylor joined UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert’s “First Family of Professional Wrestling” and placed a $5,000 bounty on Adam’s head. Taylor was by far getting the worst of the action and was the first to be busted open after his rival reversed a head smash with Terry’s brief case of bounty money. Taylor got some unexpected held from Devastation Incorporated however. No doubt looking for some payback after Adams meddled in the Lord Humongous incident earlier in the program, “Wild” Bill Irwin snuck back down to ringside and clocked Chris with a cowbell to open a big gash on the Gentleman’s forehead. Oblivious to Wild Bill’s interference, Usher stopped the match at 12:59 and deemed both Taylor and Adams “Too Bloody to Continue”.

7. UWF Heavyweight Champion Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy of the “Fabulous Freebirds” successfully defended his title against number one contender “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan in tonight’s Main Event. There was controversy-a-plenty in the ending to this otherwise clean and scientific championship match. Michael P.S. Hayes seemed suspiciously over-confident in his fellow Freebird’s chances of winning this bout during his commentary with Jim Ross at the announcers’ table. With both Referee Ronnie West and Gordy spilled to the canvas after the two inadvertently collided in the ring, Art Crews came out of nowhere and laid out Hacksaw with Bam Bam’s Championship Belt following a charge from a three point stance. Gordy crawled over to drape an arm across his KO’d challenger’s chest with a woozy West then adding the 1-2-3. Terry Gordy retains the UWF Heavyweight Championship.

“Cowboy” Bill Watts’ UWF Results (Circa Late 80's) - Irish McNeil Boy's Club, Shreveport, LA. Att: 2,351.

Commentators: Jim Ross & Magnum T.A.
Ring Announcer: “Jolting” Joe Bryan
Referees: Carl Fergie, Tommy Gilbert & Edward Faulk

1. ”Mr. Superb” Steve Doll (w/ Missy Hyatt, UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert & Terry Taylor) defeated Davey Haskins in our opening contest at 8:36. Looking to make a favorable impression upon the First Family of Professional Wrestling as a possible future member, Doll made a big entrance to Motley Crue’s “Girls, Girls, Girls !” and proceeded to completely dominate young Haskins right from the opening bell. Mr. Superb could have pinned his opponent on several occasions, but kept yanking Davey up at the count of two despite Referee Carl Fergie’s repeated warnings to the contrary. Doll finally finished off Haskins with a Flying Forearm off the ropes and dedicated the victory to Terry Taylor. The First Family members talked amongst themselves afterwards with Taylor seeming quite impressed.

Jim Ross called Art Crews’ actions last week “reprehensible” during a ringside interview segment with the veteran grappler. Crews, one might recall, clobbered “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan with Terry Gordy’s UWF Championship belt during a title match last week in Muskogee. Crews was visibly upset with Duggan after Hacksaw interrupted his promo earlier in the program. His interference enabled Gordy to retain the title. Crews showed no remorse for his doings; to the contrary – he claimed to be “proud” of costing Duggan his title shot and even went so far as to refer to Hacksaw as “over-rated”. Ross pressed the matter further and questioned as to whether or not there was any collusion between Crews and the Fabulous Freebirds. Art objected to the suggestion and was threatening to haul off and smack the announcer when he was suddenly run off by Duggan and his trusty 2x4 much to the delight of the fans.

2. Our second match pitting Kortsia Korchenko against “Raging Greek” Mike Pappas never took place. Jim Duggan decided to stick around ringside after the interview segment and led the crowd in a loud “U.S.A.!” chant while Korchenko made his way down the aisle. The big Russian took exception to the rowdy reception and got into a heated confrontation with Hacksaw on the floor. Several wrestlers ran out from the back to separate the two combatants.

3. Steve Cox beat “Cuban Hitman” Gustavo Mendoza (w/ “Cuban Assassin” David “Fidel” Sierra) at 4:34. Cox appeared to be at a distinct disadvantage with Sierra lurking around ringside. While the Assassin did prove to be a constant source of distraction, his interference would ultimately lead to Mendoza’s downfall. The Cuban Hitman was stunned by an errant smash from Sierra’s Cuban Flag and stumbled right into a Bridging Back Suplex to give Cox the victory.

4. “Gorgeous” Gary Young (w/ Brett Sawyer) topped Brad Armstrong at 9:44. Sawyer may have led the cheers from Young’s corner with his spirited encouragement and advice, but otherwise refrained from directly interfering in the contest – that is, until the very end. An inadvertent collision with Referee Carl Fergie left Gorgeous Gary dazed and sprawled out on the mat. Armstrong immediately scaled the top rope to attempt a Diving Splash but was pushed off the turnbuckle by Sawyer before he could properly set himself. Brett then ran in and dragged Young on top of Armstrong just before Fergie recovered to count the tainted pin.

5. Michael P.S. Hayes (w/ Moonwalk and fellow Freebird Buddy Roberts) over Chavo Guerrero via Count Out at 12:41. Chavo caught a huge break when Referee Tommy Gilbert ordered Roberts back to the dressing room following the match introductions. Without his compatriot in his corner, Hayes resorted to devious means to pull out a win. Guerrero was given a DDT on the floor once the action moved OOR and was unable to recover in time to make the official’s subsequent ten count.

6. The tag team bout between bitter rivals the First Family of Professional Wrestling (UWF TV Champion “Hot Stuff” Eddie Gilbert & Terry Taylor w/ “First Lady” Missy Hyatt) and the duo of “Gentleman” Chris Adams & Sting ended in a Double Disqualification. Sting and Adams had a surprise for their adversaries with valet Sunshine camped in their corner to help keep the unscrupulous Missy Hyatt at bay. This bout degenerated into a four man free-for-all with the teams’ respective ladies also running into the ring to engage in a hair-pulling cat fight. Referee Edward Faulk had enough and called for the bell at 13:35.

7. Lord Humongous and Devastation Incorporated’s One Man Gang (w/ General Skandor Akbar) were both counted out by Referee Carl Fergie in tonight’s Main Event at 10:53. Humongous, who spurned Devastation Incoporated’s attempts to woo him into their stable, has had his hands full with Akbar’s henchmen ever since. Jim Ross appropriately referred to this battle as a “slobberknocker”. The match was decided when a running clothesline by Humongous sent both men toppling over the top rope and crashing hard to the floor below. The combatants continued to brawl back up the aisle toward the dressing room as Fergie’s ten count expired.

AWA Results (Circa Mid 80's) - Municipal Auditorium, Minot, ND. Att: 4,328.

Announcers: Rod Trongard & Lord James Blears
Ring Announcer: "Dapper" Dave Prill
Referees: Larry Lisowski, Robert Warren & Gary DeRusha

1. The opening bout pitting Jake “The Milkman” Milliman against Rick Gantner was declared a “No Contest” by Referee Larry Lisowski at 8:05 when “Pretty Boy” Doug Somers and “TNT” D.J. Peterson entered the ring and began brawling. Peterson was cutting a promo with Dave Prill at ringside regarding his upcoming match against Somers later this evening when the Pretty Boy snuck up from behind with a folding chair. Peterson thwarted the sneak attack by landing a Crescent Kick to Somers’ breadbasket, but the incident sparked off a wild melee that eventually ended up in the ring.

2. Boris Zhukov (w/ Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee) and Anthony “Earthquake” Ferris were both counted out by Referee Robert Warren at 5:02. Zhukov and El-Kaisee drew some major heat (and “USA!” chants) from the crowd to rack up bonus heel points for this contest. The devious Sheik also got in several cheapshots along the way to draw the wrath of big Anthony. Fed up with all the outside interference, Ferris bailed from the ring to give El-Kaisee his comeuppance. Boris Zhukov immediately rushed to his manager’s defense and brawled with Earthquake on the floor. Both men missed the count as they traded haymakers in the aisle leading to the dressing room.

3. “TNT” D.J. Peterson and “Pretty Boy” Dog Somers picked right up where they left off in the Milliman/Gantner match from earlier and battled to a Double Count Out at 11:17. D.J. was getting the better of the fight until Somer’s tag team partner “Playboy” Buddy Rose and Manageress “Senastional” Sherri Martel came down to ringside. The heels managed to put a double-team beatdown on Peterson OOR while Martel distracted Referee Gary DeRusha. The Pretty Boy continued to stomp away on his fallen foe and was oblivious to DeRusha who had finally begun counting. Tom Zenk raced down to ringside from the back to make the save for Peterson.

4. “Mr. Electricity” Steve Regal & “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin (w/ Valet Precious) over The California Connection (“Beach Boy” Sonny Rogers & “California Kid” Tommy Jammer) in tag team action at 6:24. Garvin was looking for some payback on Tommy Jammer after the California Kid had helped Ricky Rice defeat him last week in Madison, WI. Gorgeous Jimmy let his partner Steve Regal do most of the wrestling while he covertly worked on loosening the padding from the turnbuckle in their corner. Once he had accomplished his mission, Garvin quickly tagged in and dazed Jammer with a forehead smash into the exposed steel leading to the three count.

5. Curt Hennig beat “Z Man” Tom Zenk at 6:50. Hennig has turned his back on the fans in recent weeks and broke the rules quite fragrantly tonight. Hennig pulled a foreign object from his tights and stunned his adversary with a loaded punch to the chops. Zenk staggered around the ring and was pinned with a Missile Drop Kick from the top rope moments later.

6. AWA TV Champion “High Flyer” Greg Gagne defended the title against his close personal friend Brad Rheingans in a highly scientific match. Rheingans disclosed to Rod Trongard in a pre-match interview that he had a new finishing maneuver called “The Bullet” and was hoping that he would have an opportunity to use it on Gagne tonight. He was even introduced to the audience as “Bullet” Brad Rheingans by Ring Announcer “Dapper” Dave Prill. A missed Drop Kick by the champion set the stage for the maneuver to be unveiled. Rheingans hopped up to the second rope and leapt off with a Flying Shoulder Tackle into the woozy Gagne who had just gotten back up to his feet. The challenger hooked a leg and Referee Gary DeRusha counted the 1-2-3 at 9:20. Brad Rheingans is the Neeeeeeeewwwwwwwww AWA Television Champion. After the bell, the two competitors shook hands as the fans applauded them both.

7. “The Mountain from Stone Mountain, GA” Crusher Jerry Blackwell over “The Mercenary from South Africa” Colonel Debeers via DQ in the Main Event at 10:48. Debeers knows how to draw heat to bolster his points total and did so by frightening a youngster as he made his way down the aisle for the match introductions. It had been unclear in recent weeks as to whether or not Debeers is a member of Sheik Adnan El-Kaisee’s stable of heels, however that question may have been answered this evening. The Sheik came down to ringside mid-match and ran in to break up what appeared to be a certain pinfall after “The Champion of Apartheid” was pulverized by a Big Running Splash from Blackwell. Referee Larry Lisowski wasted no time in calling for the disqualification. Debeers managed to roll himself OOR and was helped to the back by El-Kaisee while favoring his ribs.

AWA Results (Circa Mid 80's) - Waukesha County Expo Center, Waukesha, WI. Att: 3,700.

Announcers: Larry Nelson & Nick Bockwinkel
Ring Announcer: "Dapper" Dave Prill
Referees: Marty Miller, Scott Ledoux & Rich Frisk

1. Jake “The Milkman” Milliman defeated “Alaskan” Rick Renslow by way of disqualification in the opening contest at 9:26. Renslow was in a particularly foul mood after his pre-match interview with “Dapper” Dave Prill was interrupted by Brandi Mae. Brandi, who is facing Candi Devine in tonight’s second bout, was overly excited by the prospect of earning a title shot against Ladies Champion Madusa Micelli should she be victorious over Devine this evening. Renslow let his temper get the better of him when he bashed the Milkman with his Alaskan War Club as the 10:00 time limit was rapidly approaching. Referee Marty Miller saw the infraction and called for the bell.

2. Big Otto Wanz pinned Dennis Stamp at 6:19. Stamp jumped on the offensive right at the get go with a flurry of roughhouse tactics. He went to the eyes often despite repeated warnings from former boxer-turned-referee Scott Ledoux. The tensions between Stamp and the offical escalated into a full blown shouting match. The incident was just what the doctor ordered to enable Wanz to turn the momentum in his favor. The preoccupied Stamp was spun around and whipped into the turnbuckle. Big Otto quickly followed with a crushing Corner Avalanche and finished off his dazed foe with a Big Splash.

3. Candi Devine beat Brandi Mae in controversial fashion to become the number one contender for the Ladies Championship. Rick Renslow had clearly not forgotten nor forgiven Brandi for upstaging him earlier in the program. Devine appeared to be out cold after becoming entrapped in her opponent’s Sleeper Hold, but Referee Rich Frisk had been accidentally bumped to the canvas during a collision with the women moments earler. Enter the spiteful Renslow who came off the top rope with a Double Axe Handle to Brandi’s back to break up the Sleeper and then dragged Devine’s limp body on top of her before high-tailing it out of the ring. Frisk shook out the cobwebs and made the three count at 6:32 to give Candi the win.

4. “Mr. Magnificent” Kevin Kelly (w/ Madusa Micelli) beat Marty Jannetty at 9:05. Jannetty, who is one half of the AWA Tag Team Champion Midnight Rockers along with Shawn Michaels, was victimized by some shady shenanigans from Kelly’s valet. Micelli slid her Ladies Championship Belt into the ring and proceded to incite an argument with Referee Marty Miller. The ruse allowed Mr. Magnificent to smash his adversary in the noggin with the title belt behind the official’s back. Miller finally turned around to find Kelly making the cover on the KO’d Jannetty and counted the 1-2-3.

5. “Playboy” Buddy Rose & “Pretty Boy” Doug Somers defeated the duo of “Z Man” Tom Zenk & “TNT” D.J. Peterson in tag team action at 9:43. The Modifier rolls for the respective teams had a significant impact on the outcome of this bout. Peterson & Zenk padded their points total with Speed, but Rose & Somers did them one better with their Cheating. The Playboy was able to toss a handful of powder into Peterson’s face while Referee Scott Ledoux was ushering Zenk back to his corner. Doug Somers caught the blinded D.J. in a Backroll Press to score the winning pinfall.

6. David Sammartino over Alexis Smirnoff via DQ at 8:22. The big Russian drew major heat (and relentless “U.S.A.!” chants) from the crowd to earn himself bonus heel points, but they were offset by a roll on his opponent’s Technical Skills Modifier. Sammartino seemed to have a counter for everything that Smirnoff threw at him. The frustrated Russian resorted to clobbering David with a folding chair to draw the disqualification.

7. “High Flyer” Greg Gagne pinned “Gorgeous” Jimmy Garvin (w/ Valet Precious) in the Main Event at 13:55. This bout was decided by outside interference gone awry. Precious attempted to spray Gagne in the face with her can of aerosol air freshener but ended up getting Gorgeous Jimmy with it instead. Garvin staggered into a Backslide to give Gagne the victory.

WWF Monday Night RAW Results (Attitude Era Circa Late 90's) - Crown Coliseum, Fayettville, NC



Commentators: Jim Ross & Jerry "The King" Lawler
Interviewer: Kevin Kelly
Ring Announcer: Lilian Garcia
Referees: Earl Hebner, Chad Patton, Teddy Long & Jack Doan



1. Scorpio vs. Pantera

Scorpio cut a great promo prior to tonight's opening bout, however the bonus points that he earned were offset by Mr. McMahon who endorsed Pantera as a goodwill gesture toward the international talent pool within the ranks of the WWF. To reinforce his conviction, the Boss dispatched his associates Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson to ringside to insure a Pantera victory. McMahon's strategy nearly backfired, however. Rather than help the cause, the bungling duo nearly cost the Mexican star the match. Patterson attempted to clobber Scorpio with a folding chair but ended up decking Pantera with it instead. The masked luchador barely managed to get a foot on the bottom rope to prevent a pinfall. The contest eventually got out of hand with both competitors bashing one another with Patterson's chair. Referee Earl Hebner had enough and ruled a Double Disqualification at 6:51.


2. Matt Hardy (w/ Jeff Hardy) vs. "Bombastic" Bob Holly of the New Midnight Express (w/ Jim Cornette)

Though more accustomed to tag team competition, Matt Hardy went the singles route this evening after brother Jeff sustained a concussion at the hands of their former manger Michael Hayes a few weeks ago. Despite the injury, Jeff accompanied Matt to the ring much to the delight of their fans. The Hardys are very popular with the younger crowd and rewarded Matt with an additional 125 points to work with after the brothers made a big entrance. Not to be outdone, Cornette bolstered Holly's heel score by 75 points by snatching the house mic away from Lilian Garcia and performing the ring introduction for Bombastic Bob. This highly competitive bout was ultimately decided by some outside interference gone awry. Jeff meant well when he stole away Cornette's tennis racquet and tossed it into the ring for his brother to use, however Holly spied it first. Bombastic Bob whalloped Matt from behind while Referee Chad Patton was arguing with Cornette. Holly then finished off his dazed opponent with a Falcon Arrow (Sitout Suplex Slam) to gain the 1-2-3 at 7:00.


3. Droz & Prince Albert vs. Big Trouble (Big Show & the Big Bossman)

Mr. McMahon has made it clear that Prince Albert is in his doghouse. The Boss was not pleased with Albert's early departure from the Royal Rumble a month ago and threatened to fire him if he didn't see a better effort from the big man in the future. To emphasize his point, McMahon came down to ringside to witness this tag team contest first-hand. As one might imagine, his foreboding presence proved to be an endless source of distraction for Droz and his partner. Once they got him in the ring, Big Trouble isolated Albert and prevented him from reaching his corner to tag out. At one point, the Bossman held the battered Prince from behind while McMahon chewed him out and slapped him across the face. The former prison guard from Cobb County, Georgia then finished Albert off with the Bossman Slam (Spinning Sidewalk Slam) to give Big Trouble the victory at 6:35.


4. Savio Vega of Los Boricuas (w/ Miguel Perez Jr. & Jesus Castillo) vs. Dan "The Beast" Severn (w/ "Beauty" Terri Runnels)

The story of this match was what took place before it even started. Severn was jumped backstage by former UFC rival Ken Shamrock before the contest and sustained 200 points worth of damage. Though he was considered to be the underdog going into the match, Vega's chances suddenly looked considerably better. Severn pulled this one out in the end, but not without help from his valet. Terri sprayed Savio in the face with a fire extinguisher thereby enabling the Beast to cradle his blinded foe in a Small Package for the winning pinfall at 5:16.


5. Road Dogg Jesse James of D-Generation X (w/ "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn) vs. The Godfather of the Nation of Domination (w/ Entourage of "Hos" )

Both men scored points with the fans for their respective entrances. The Pimp Daddy came to the ring first with a half dozen of his ladies of the evening. The scantily clad girls then proceeded to dance and prance their way into the crowd's heart to some funky 70's jam. Road Dogg's music then hit followed by his trademark "Oh, you didn't know ? Your ass better call someone !" howl. In a comical moment, the Godfather offered the services of his gals to the New Age Outlaws for the evening if Road Dogg agreed to forfeit the match to him in return. After careful consideration and contemplation, the Dogg declined the suggestion with a rather disparaging remark. Apparently offended by the snub, one of the ladies (who suspiciously resembled that of future WWF diva Lita) slipped the Pimp Daddy one of his gold chains during the action. The Godfather wrapped the bling around his fist and clocked Road Dogg with a loaded punch to the kisser. Referee Chad Patton caught the infraction, however, and awarded the match to the Dogg by disqualification at 6:41.


6. Val Venis (w/ Ryan Shamrock) vs. "Marvelous" Marc Mero (w/ Jacqualine)

Mero drew some serious heat during his entrance to pad his score by 125 points, and then tacked on another 100 points with a sneak attack from behind on the former adult film star while Venis lecherously twirled a towel from off his gyrating hips during his introduction. The double-whammy was simply too much for Val to overcome. Ryan Shamrock must have sensed it, too, and climbed up onto the apron to lend her man some help. The quick-thinking Mero sent his opponent crashing into her and then caught Venis in a Schoolboy Rollup as he staggered backward from the collision to score the pin at 8:14. After the bell, Ryan and Val had words in the ring as to who was to blame for the defeat.


7. "The Most Dangerous Man in the World" Ken Shamrock (w/ Unpredictable Temper) vs. "The Vampire Warrior" Gangrel of the Brood (w/ Edge & Christian)

Shamrock is a man on a mission ever since Edge and Gangrel conspired against him to help the Vampire Warrior win the Royal Rumble. As a result, Gangrel was awarded a title match against WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin at WrestleMania. Shamrock has sworn revenge on the Brood and beat Edge in a match on RAW the Monday night following the Rumble. It was an ominous sign for the Vampire Warrior when Referee Teddy Long ordered both Edge and Christian to return to the back following Lilian Garcia's match introductions. Assisted by a roll on his Speed Modifier, the World's Most Dangerous Man dominated this bout and got Gangrel to tap out to his Ankle Lock finisher at 8:10. At first Shamrock refused to release the hold, but finally relinquished when Long threatened to disqualify him. Shamrock was then confronted by Dan Severn after he had exited the ring. The two battled back up the ramp and to the back with several officials racing in to break up the melee. And with that we fade to black with the WWF logo.
