We are just six nights away from the hottest event of the summer......we are just six nights away from a landscape changing event.....we are just six nights away.....from Summerslam....and TONIGHT, we're opening the show to a cacophony of boos......because The Hart Foundation are making their way down to the ring, along with their regular running mates Chris Jericho, and the bodyguard Test.....and Bret Hart does not look happy.....in fact to quote Jim Ross, he looks even more of a sourpuss than usual.....

....the four men soak up the boo's, with Jericho seemingly oblivious to them as he jumps up and down posing for his less than adoring public, before the Hitman takes a microphone, telling everyone to sit down and shut up if they want to hear what he has to say......obviously they don't....because the jeers come even louder, coupled with a loud USA chant that makes Bret scowl even harder, before he finally just decides to talk over them.....

"......you know, I've never been much of a braggart.....and I'm certainly not not to say I told you so......but for months now I've been telling you morons that EVERYONE in the World Wrestling Federation is out to screw me over, ESPECIALLY all your little heroes......the Kevin Nash's, the Scott Hall's.....the Scott Steiner's......but the worst of the bunch.....the biggest lowlife here in the WWF, is Stone Cold Steve Austin.....and he proved it again last week......"

.....that comment invokes a loud "Austin" chant from the crowd, which Bret says just proves his point......

"......you people......you American jack-off's, you're nothing but hypocrites.....oh you're quick to jump down MY throat.....down Owens throat, the second we so much as look at somebody.....but Stone Cold Steve Austin can come out here and cost ME a win over the WWF Champion, and you all practically wet your pants in excitement.....last week, Steve Austin SCREWED me out of the chance to become the man around here.......I was going to take that non-title win, throw it in Vince McMahon's face and DEMAND a WWF Title shot.....but yet again, it's the same thing that's been happening since Wrestlemania XII, I get screwed....and nobody does a damn thing about it......."

......Bret says that's fine, because Summerslam is this Sunday, and it's set to be a great night for Canadians everywhere.....Owen Hart is going to walk out with the Intercontinental Championship.....Chris Jericho is going to walk out the LAST Light Heavyweight Champion......

"......and as for me, I'm going to beat the living hell out of Stone Cold Steve Austin at his own game, in a no holds barred, anything goes match.....but that's Sunday night......THIS is tonight.....and if Steve Austin has any guts at all, he'll walk down that aisle right now and face me like a man......"

......Jim Ross says that Bret is a real brave man, calling out Austin when its four on one, Austin would have to have a death wish to answer this challenge.....Rude however simply says that Owen, Jericho and Test are there for moral support, to cheer the Hitman on.....not that it will matter, because Stone Cold is too much of a coward to answer that challenge.......

































.....well if there's one thing Steve Austin ISN'T it's a coward.......he might be slightly stupid however, because there are four men in that ring.....and if you believe Rick Rudes claims that Owen, Jericho and Test are just there for moral support then you'll believe anything.....



.......he marches down to ringside and grabs a microphone from the commentary table....he doesn't get in the ring just yet however, instead telling the Hitman that at Summerslam, he's gonna take his little pink and black ass and beat him like the jackass he is.....

"......see what you need to know son, is that when it comes to whipping your ass, enough is never going to be enough.......I'm gonna whip your ass at Summerslam.....stomp a mudhole in you on Raw......put this boot right between your beady little eyes on Superstars.....you name the time and the place, and I'll be there whipping your ass.......just like I'm gonna do right now......"

......with that Austin tosses the microphone to one side, picks up a steel chair and slides into the ring.....where he's descended upon before he can even get to his feet, as the four men already in the ring begin to stomp him into the mat.....Rude says that this was just a stupid decision by Austin, proving what a dumb redneck he really is......Jericho drags Austin to his feet, but showing why they call him the toughest S.o.B in the WWF, Austin shoves him off before kicking the advancing Test in the gut and dropping him with the Stone Cold Stunner......Jericho charges but gets backdropped over the top rope to the floor, followed in swift fashion by Owen Hart, who Stone Cold sidesteps before tossing him to the outside....Bret looks to make a move, but Austin quickly picks up the steel chair and the Hitman decides to beat a hasty retreat, joining his compadres on the outside......

.....Austin is egging all four men to get back in the ring, but the sight of a chair wielding Stone Cold is enough for them to decide to head to the back, with Bret telling Austin that if he wants a fight so bad, he's got one.......later.......when he can go one on one.....with Test.....before the group turn and head to the back, leaving Austin to toast the crowd with a few Steveweisers as we await our first match.

And that first match features the British Bulldog facing off against Nation of Domination member Kama, just six days ahead of his Summerslam clash with Nation leader Faarooq and Owen Hart, where Davey will be looking to claim the Intercontinental Championship for a third time.....speaking of Faarooq, he's out to accompany his Nation brother for this one, although he spends a good portion of the match on the commentary table, where he hypes up all of the Nation's Summerslam matches, while being sure to mention the unfairness of the stipulations involved in both the Rock and Scorpios Title defences, as well as the attempt by "the man" to get that Intercontinental Championship away from him, by forcing him to defend his title against two men......

......Davey Boy will be looking to pick up a victory here, giving him some momentum heading into Sunday night....and he looks as though he's going to pick up the win too.....especially when he throws Kama up onto his shoulder, looking for that Running Powerslam.....which is when Faarooq flys off the commentary table and hooks the Bulldogs ankle, allowing Kama to wriggle free.....The Bulldog and the official both turn to tell Faarooq to get the hell away from ringside.....which is why they don't notice Kama picking up the Intercontinental Championship that Faarooq had slid into the ring.......he nails the Bulldog right in the back of the head with the gold belt, before tossing the title to the outside and making the cover, just as the official turns around to register the three count.....not a good night for the Bulldog, who's going to have to have eyes in the back of his head if he wants to pick up the Intercontinental Championship at Summerslam.

Winner: Kama

From there we head to the back, where Dok Hendrix is standing by with Dude Love....who in just six short days will be facing off against the Corporate Cannon Brian Pillman....and if you believe anything Pillman says, The Dude has no chance of victory in his current tie-dyed incarnation.....and as Dok points out, if last week is anything to go by, Pillman might just be right, because it was the Cannon pinning the Dude's shoulders to the mat for the one, two, three......

".....well Dok baby, while that fact may be true, you have to look at the big picture daddy-o.....did Brian Pillman pin the Dude last week? You're damn right he did, there's no denying it.....but tell me this Dok, did it take Shawn Michaels kicking the Dude straight in his pearly whites first? A Shawn Michaels that wasn't even in the match? You're damn skippy hippy.....and at Summerslam, I'd say Mr. Heartbreak Kid himself is gonna have his hands too full with a certain seven foot Kevin Nash to be sticking his nose....or his foot.....in the Dude's business......"

......the Dude tells Dok to rest assured, because his main man Big Sexy will be making sure that Shawn Michaels gets his just desserts......while the Dude shows Brian Pillman, that he doesn't need chairs or barbed wire boards to take him down a peg or two......because the Summer of Love is coming.....and it's starting at Summerslam......

"......Owwwwww, Have Mercy........"





























......which is when Brian Pillman smashes a steel chair across the back of the Dude out of nowhere....and as Hendrix bids a hasty retreat, he proceeds to bend the steel in half as he crashes it again and again over the fallen form of the Dude, before finally throwing it angrily across the room with that maniacal wide eyed stare, practically frothing at the mouth as he unleashes a series of kicks......

"......have mercy? HAVE MERCY?....that's exactly the reason you can't win this war Foley.....mercy is for the weak......mercy is for the coward......mercy is overrated......and I have no mercy to give.......this isn't a Summer of Love......it's a Summer of Hate......of Pain.....of Suffering......and for those unwashed masses that chant your name like the Pavlovian Sheep that they are.....a Summer of Disappointment......and after I shatter your illusions at Summerslam, and as you crawl home to your family a broken man......Daddy's little girl is going to be begging for the 'Bad Man' to come back.......because he might be scary.....but at least he isn't a pathetic embarrassment of a father like the tie-dyed loser she has now......I'll see you Sunday Mick......"

......with that Pillman gives the Dude another stiff kick to the ribs, before walking off.....as a disgusted sounding Jim Ross sends us to commercial.

VS.

Last week Psycho Sid took on (and defeated) the Flock's Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels.....but it was the aftermath of the match that was the most surprising, because not only did Daniels directly disobey his masters orders (by refusing to attack Sid post match) he also delivered a second cardinal sin, when he actually offered Sid a handshake as a show of respect....

......Sid will be facing the master of the macabre, Raven at Summerslam.....and has put his WWF career on the line in the process......Raven on the other hand has agreed to disband the Flock should Sid manage to defeat him, with Jake Roberts desperate to atone for his previous sins, he will be in the corner of the big man, claiming that the Flock are an albatross around Raven's neck, not only preventing THEM from fulfilling their full potential, but Raven too......and it's two members of that Flock that Jake and Sid will be going up against tonight, when they face the Dogs of War, Wrath and Crush.....although much like Christopher Daniels, these two seem to be starting to see that Raven perhaps doesn't have their best interests at heart after all.....and in fact, appear to be wondering if a life AWAY from the Flock might be more beneficial to their careers......

.....much like last week, Raven accompanies his two men to the ring....although unlike last week, he's not alone....because he's bought Daniels and DeMott out with him too.....although truth be told, Raven at ring side tonight (much like in Daniels match against Sid) is more of a hindrance than a help, because he's so focused on the Dogs picking up a victory here, that he actually ends up COSTING them the win, because when Wrath takes his eye off his opponent to tell Raven to quit barking orders, Sid is able to catch him and stick him with a Powerbomb that is enough to grant him (and Jake) the victory.

Winner(s): Psycho Sid & Jake Roberts

Raven is furious with the Dogs defeat.....screaming at both Wrath and Crush that they let him down.....that they were failures when he met them and they will continue to be failures until they fully submit to Ravens will.....he tells them to show him why they are HIS Dogs of War, throwing a chair into the ring and telling them to unleash hell.....Crush checks on his partner, who nods that he's ok, before picking up the steel chair.....and tossing it back towards Raven.....who looks on in horror as much like with Daniels last week, Wrath and Crush offer a hand to Sid and Jake in a show of respect, before the two Dogs turn and walk to the back, leaving Raven standing in shock......

.....he turns to Daniels, telling HIM to get in there and assault the pair....but Daniels turns and follows the Dogs of War to the back, as Raven watches the Flock crumble before his very eyes....and Jim Ross comments that the way things are going, Raven won't even HAVE a Flock to wager this coming Sunday......

.....only DeMott remains, thus far the most loyal of all Raven's Followers.....and Raven tries one more time.....telling the giggling big man to get in there and prove his worth....DeMott certainly looks hesitant.....but at least that is more to do with the trepidation of climbing into the ring with a fired up Psycho Sid than it is to do with wanting to disobey his master.....and somewhat reluctantly he does slide under the bottom rope....charging at Sid.....who instantly drops him with a big boot.....before dragging him to his feet and tossing him to the Snake, who delivers that Short Arm Clothesline that has always been the set up for the DDT.....

......Raven screams at Roberts not to do it......telling him that the DDT is his now......but Jake isn't listening.....and as the crowd chant for his signature move, he picks up DeMott.....and DDT's him straight into the mat.....and as Sid unceremoniously rolls Bill to the outside (where he lands at Raven's feet) Jim Ross declares that it looks as though Summerslam could be a very long night for Raven......and a very bad night for the fate of the Flock.

We head to the back now, where Dok Hendrix is standing by with one half of our Summerslam WWF Tag Team Title match, Al Snow, Chris Candido and Harlem Heat.....who will be competing in a fatal four way match this Sunday against the teams of Edge and Christian and the New Age Outlaws......the winners walk out as Champions.....while the losing team walks out of the WWF altogether, because they will be fired......Dok says that's Sunday though......tonight it will be Booker T teaming up with Al Snow, to face off against the combination of the Road Dogg Jesse James and his partner for the evening, Edge......Booker T goes to speak, but Al Snow cuts him off, telling Dok that......

".....that's right Betty.....and tonight, I just can't wait to be a member of Harlem Heat, ya dig Sucka?............what?...........I can say Sucka.......I'm very 'street' I'll have you know.......(Al stops and gives Head a cold stare, obviously not liking whatever it is she has to say).......you take that back........I'm hip...........I AM........I'm cool........I AM!!........I'm cooler than you.........no.......no, you're not wearing it..........you're embarrassing me.........no........NO........fine, fine, you want to embarrass yourself then go right ahead......"

.......Al ducks out of shot for a moment before standing back up.......and now Head is wearing a black Harlem Heat bandana, complete with flame motif.......

".......are you happy now, you look ridiculous.......you look ridiculous.......Booker tell her she looks ridiculous......."

".......hey, she looks good to me dog......"

".....don't encourage her.......her ego is big enough as it is.......Chris, tell her how stupid she looks......."


.......Candido pauses for a moment as Booker and Stevie chuckle away in the background, before telling Al that nothing 'Head' could ever do could embarrass him any more than Al Snow embarrasses him on a daily basis......in fact, the ONLY thing Al Snow could do to not embarrass Chris Candido, would be to pick up the win tonight, and walk out of Summerslam as one half of the NEW tag team champions.......

".....so can we maybe focus on that?....."

......Dok tells the men that they are allied tonight, but in six days it's going to be every team for themself.....and after Billy Gunns victory last week, the advantage is surely in the camp of the New Age Outlaws?......Booker T doesn't agree, he says the Outlaws.....

".....haven't been teaming up but five minutes, and no offence to this crazy cracker right here and his partner, but neither have they.....Edge and Christian, they just a pair of wannabe's.....me and my brother, we been a team our whole damn life.....and we been winning tag team Gold our whole career.....forget about your Steiner Brothers, your Hart Foundations....your Legion of Dooms....what you looking at right here is the greatest team in the history of tag team Wrestling.....and it's just like Biggie said....cuz if you don't know, now you know.....sucka....."

....Chris Candido takes exception to that, telling Booker that he and his brother may have worn tag team gold elsewhere......but they've never worn tag team gold where it matters, and that's here in the WWF.....and while he and Al Snow haven't been teaming all that long, they've racked up some pretty impressive wins along the way......and Sunday night will be the biggest win so far, when they take home those tag team titles.....the absolute BEST result that the Heat can hope for, is that it's neither one of THEM that Candido pins to finish that match.....because they've only been in the WWF "but five minutes" and it would be a shame for their careers to be ended, before they even began.....

.....the interview then soon descends into an argument, with Dok doing his best to remind these men that they still have to co-operate this evening, before Booker, Stevie and Candido finally storm off before they come to blows, leaving an flustered looking Al Snow behind....who looks down at Head......and up at Dok.....before letting out a sigh.....

".....can't we all just get along Betty?....."

.....Al just stands there, as if he's waiting for an answer to that rhetorical question....before Dok reminds him that his match is up next, as he scampers off towards the ring area.....

So that match is indeed next......and unlike last week, this isn't a fatal four way......but a standard tag team match.....but with far from standard partners......the ringside area is somewhat crowded too....because each man is accompanied by his usual partner, meaning that Chris Candido, Stevie Ray, Christian and Billy Gunn are all on the floor.....

.....realistically, every single team involved in Sunday's Title match has the potential to walk out as Champions.....in fact, I can virtually guarantee that each team involved in this match will hold those titles at some point in their career.....or at least I COULD have guaranteed that up until a few weeks ago.....but with the added stipulation, now I can't even guarantee that our CURRENT champions will still have a job come Monday morning......

......interestingly enough (despite the bickering earlier) it's Booker and Snow that are the more cohesive unit here.....with Edge obviously deciding to conserve HIS energy for Summerslam.....because he refuses to even tag into this match, leaving The Road Dogg to face two men alone.....and as Booker finishes Jesse James off with a Missile Dropkick, Edge doesn't even attempt to break up the pin....simply dropping to the outside and heading towards the back with his partner......

Winner(s): Al Snow & Chris Candido

.....not that they actually get far....because Billy Gunn goes running over, spinning Edge around and screaming at him for leaving the Road Dogg in the lurch like that.....both Edge and Christian smirk at that, telling Gunn to "chill"...and to go home and enjoy those titles for six more days......because at Summerslam, there are going to be two new "totally awesome" Champions in Edge and Christian.........the Bad Ass however, is anything but "chill".......which he demonstrates as he punches Edge square in the jaw.....and he's soon joined by the Road Dogg, who smacks Christian......the two young Canadians aren't happy with that.....and soon the two heel teams are flat out brawling in the aisle......

.....you'd think Snow, Candido and the Harlem Heat would be happy with that.....but an argument seems to have developed there too.....as Candido continues his previous argument with Booker and Stevie, while Snow tries to calm the men down......unfortunately for him, as Stevie Ray throws a punch at Candido, the former Bodydonna ducks, and it's Snow that eats the right hand to the jaw......and suddenly we have a brawl IN the ring as well as outside it.....at least until the Snow/Candido/Heat contingent stumble through the ropes....and we suddenly have all for teams (and all eight men) brawling amongst themselves at ringside....and as security comes running out from the back, Jim Ross sends us to commercial.

Fatal Four Way Match

With Chris Jericho now being the only one with his career on the line in Sunday Nights Light Heavyweight Fatal Four Way Match, he has a warm up of sorts here against three other members of the light heavyweight division, who may very well not have a division any more come Summerslam......because while if Chris Jericho does NOT win (and he doesn't even have to be the one pinned to lose) he is out of a job......if he DOES win, not only does he become the NEW Light Heavyweight Champion, he becomes the LAST Light Heavyweight Champion....because the entire division will be retired.....

.....and that fact puts quite the bullseye on his back here tonight....after all, should The Ayatollah of RocknRolla walk into Summerslam with an injury, that would seriously harm his chances of winning.....and he does take quite the bit of punishment here, with all three of his opponents looking to be the one to defeat him......tempers and egos flare however, since this is one fall to a finish.....and after numerous pinfalls are broken up, Jericho's three opponents finally turn on each other, giving him a much needed break.....and opportunity......because after Lynn is back bodydropped high out of the ring, Kidman nails Christopher with a Shooting Star Press.....and WOULD have got the victory.....had Jericho not dragged him off "Jerry's Kid"....tossed him to the outside.....and stolen the pinfall himself......that's one Fatal Four Way down......one to go.

Winner: Chris Jericho

It's hype time now......as we go to a promo package highlighting the storied history between Kevin Nash and Shawn Michaels, with snippets of comments from each man spliced in throughout.....it starts with Michaels smashing Marty Jannette through the Barber Shop Window, followed up by a shot of him capturing his first Intercontinental Championship from the British Bulldog, with a Michaels voice over telling us that he always had a knack for knowing when friends had outlived their usefulness.....he says that he always knew he was destined for greatness.....and he did it all on his own....

.....that's followed up with a shot of Jannetty defeating Michaels for the Intercontinental Championship.....before we see Kevin Nash's WWF debut as Diesel, helping the Heartbreak Kid regain the championship at a house show event, with a Nash voice over telling us that he's been carrying Shawn Michaels since the day he arrived here in the WWF.....followed by shot after shot of Diesel's interference helping Michaels regain the gold.....

.....from there we have a clip of Diesel eliminating seven men from the 1994 Royal Rumble, emphasising the reaction from the crowd that night as they embraced the (then still heel) big man.....as Michaels tells us that he dragged Nash from nothing and made him a star.....before we see Nash's parting shot in the Rumble, where Shawn Michaels appeared to help eliminate him....with Nash telling us that Shawn Michaels has been stabbing him in the back from day one, he should have seen all this coming.....

.....next we see Diesel capture the Intercontinental Championship from Razor Ramon (with an assist from Shawn Michaels) as well as the pairs Tag Team Title victory over the Headshrinkers, making Big Kev a double champion....as Shawn tells us that he's the ONLY reason that Kevin won ANYTHING around here.....before we see Michaels accidentally Superkicking Diesel in the jaw, inadvertently cost Nash the Intercontinental Title at Summerslam 94.....before we see him Superkick him again at Survivor Series 94, before running out on him and tossing the tag team championship down in the process, as Nash tells us that Shawn Michaels is the ONLY reason that he lost ANYTHING around here......

.....there's a shot of Michaels going coast to coast in the 1995 Royal Rumble....telling us that he showed the world how good he was when he finally ditched that seven foot loser.....followed by Diesels squashing of Bob Backlund at Madison Square Garden to capture the WWF Title, with Nash saying that when he was finally free from babysitting Shawn, HE showed the world how good he was.....before we see the pairs only Pay Per View match, when Diesel defeated the Heartbreak Kid at Wrestlemania XI, with Nash telling us that he's defeated Michaels before, he can damn sure do it again.....

.....from there we have flashes of Diesel's WWF Title reign....defeating the likes of Mabel, Tatanka, Bam Bam Bigelow and Psycho Sid in real snore fests, before being defeated for the belt by Bret Hart....as Shawn tells us that Nash held that World Wrestling Federation Championship for a year....and drove the business into the toilet......before we see Michaels WWF Title victory over Bret Hart at Wrestlemania XII (without a shot of the KLiQ's interference that helped him win) as well as victories over the likes of Bret Hart (again), Owen Hart, Brian Pillman, Steve Austin, Chris Jericho etc....as Shawn tells us that HE held the World Wrestling Federation Championship for a year, defeating the man that Nash couldn't......and he took the business to highs it had never seen before.....and he did it all by himself.....

......that's followed up by a repeat shot of Shawn winning the WWF Championship again, as well as all his subsequent title defences....except this time all of the KLiQs interference is included....especially highlighting the fact that it was Nash that helped Michaels win the WWF Title in the first place.....as Nash tells us that Shawn Michaels held the World Wrestling Federation for a year because of HIM.....and it was the KLiQ that revolutionised this business and turned the WWF into a ratings machine.....ALL of the KLiQ....NOT just Shawn Michaels.....but Michaels just couldn't share the spotlight.....he had to let his ego get the best of him.....

....from there we see the deterioration of the KLiQ.....Michaels constantly ripping into and talking down to his friends.....Michaels accidentally Superkicking each and every member at some point or other.....Michaels doing more to COST his so called friends victories than earn them.....with Nash telling us that it was the Wolfpac that carried Shawn Michaels to the top....and all they got for it was to be sh!t on week in and week out.....he says that Shawn Michaels killed the KLiQ.....Shawn Michaels killed the best thing to ever happen to his career.....Shawn Michaels pushed and pushed and pushed.....until Kevin Nash finally pushed back.....

.....that's followed by Kevin Nash's destruction of the Heartbreak Kid.....Powerbombing him through the announce table at the Royal Rumble......ensuring that no one interferes in the Wrestlemania match that saw Scott Steiner become the WWF Champion.....as well as Kevin Nash's vicious assault from In Your House in Canada, which again saw Michaels Jackknifed through the commentary table.....Nash tells us that this has gone on long enough....the WWF just isn't big enough for both of their egos.....one of them has got to go......and at Summerslam, Kevin Nash is going to take out the trash once and for all......

.....from there we switch to Kevin Nash getting his knee destroyed, along with Shawn's some time alliance with Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and Brian Pillman.....followed by shots of Nash with his leg in plaster being pushed around in a wheel chair....and hobbling around on crutches.....with Michaels telling us that sometimes, it's just a case of finding the friends that a right for you.....Kevin Nash's time is up, courtesy of the Heartbreak Kid.....and at Summerslam, he's going to be walking out of the WWF once and for all......"that's IF.....he can walk at all".....

It's time now for a match that was made earlier in the evening, as Stone Cold Steve Austin faces off against the bodyguard Test...a man that has already tasted the Stone Cold Stunner once this evening.....Test might have started off his WWF career impressively, but this is Steve Austin that he's in there with, a far cry from a Jim Neidhart.....although when you factor in the fact that Test has Bret Hart in his corner, his chances of victory go up exponentially....and despite Austins initial flurry, the newcomer does give Stone Cold a run for his money, once Bret inserts himself into the match.....

.....Austin is in a bad, bad mood however.....and with his anything goes match with Bret Hart coming up in just six days at Summerslam, it's going to take more than Test to derail him right now.....which is why, despite a strong showing, Test eats his second Stunner of the evening, as Stone Cold picks up a good win ahead of Sunday.

Winner: Steve Austin

No sooner has the bell rung however, than the Hitman dives into the ring and pounces on Austin.....Stone Cold is fired up however, and even after being blindsided manages to take the fight to his Summerslam opponent.....at least until Owen Hart comes running out from the back.....and Test recovers from the Stone Cold Stunner.....and suddenly it's three against one and Austin is in trouble.....

......with Owen and Test punishing Austin, Bret slides to the outside and picks up a steel chair, which he proceeds to smash across the back of Stone Cold, before driving it into the side of his knee.....and as Rick Rude points out, all of this will be perfectly legal on Sunday night......and as the Hitman drags Stone Cold to the corner, where he locks on the figure four leg lock around the ring post, Jim Ross questions what condition Steve Austin will even be in come Sunday night, as the Hart Foundation and Test finally relent in their attack, as we go to commercial.

So it's main event time.......and probably the only time any time soon that Marcus will be in a main event around here......Scotty isn't in a good mood.....and it's a bad mood that doesn't get any better when it's apparent that neither Goldust, nor Scott Steiner's sh!t as he so tastefully put it, is anywhere in sight......instead it's Marlena that accompanies Marcus to the ring.....

.....Rick Rude claims that Steiner is an absolute moron to have requested this match tonight, knowing full well that his Summerslam opponent Ahmed Johnson will not be competing this evening.....Rude says that Steiner should be resting up and getting ready for the match of his life, not coming out here with a man like Marcus.....a man who's left handed jab can break a jaw out of nowhere.......

......Marcus is more than just a left hand however....and he certainly gives Scotty a good run for his money here.....even Marlena gets in on the action, attempting to blow gold dust in the face of the WWF Champion.....Steiner avoids that however, and the dust goes right into Marcus' eyes, who drops to the mat trying to restore his vision......which means he misses Big Poppa Pump grabbing hold of Marlena....putting her over his knee..........and giving her a good spanking, much to the delight of the crown......and truth be told, judging by the coy smile on her face afterwards, much to the delight of Marlena too.....

......Marcus is swinging wildly in the background, still struggling to see......which is why he doesn't see Scotty come tearing across the ring with a big Steinerline......the WWF Champion flips Marcus over and locks on the Steiner Recliner......and just like that, this one is over.

Winner: Scott Steiner

Marlena grabs hold of Marcus, and the duo bolt quickly up the aisle.....leaving a p!ssed off looking Scott Steiner in the ring......which is exactly the time that Goldust comes swanning out from the back......he has Scotty's chain mail on his head, and Steiner's (apparently "good") lead pipe in his hand......the WWF Champion tells that "yellow freak" to prance his way down the aisle......hand Scotty his sh!t......

"........AND MAYBE.....JUST MAYBE......I'LL ONLY KICK YOUR ASS ONCE.......I WOULD THREATEN TO SHOVE THAT PIPE UP YOUR ASS TOO.....BUT I'D BE TOO WORRIED YOU'D TAKE ME UP ON THE OFFER......"

.....Goldust doesn't look overly concerned....and in fact traces his fingers over the chains adorning his head and letting out a little shudder, before taking hold of the lead pipe and handling it in a rather provocative manner, giving Scotty a little wink as he does so......

......and that's about all Steiner can take.....he looks about ready to explode and Goldust might want to run.....because Scotty looks like he's about to exit this ring and charge at the Bizarre One.........
































..........at least until Ahmed Johnson comes flying out of the crowd, with a huge wooden plank of wood in his hand......which he cracks across the huge back of Steiner, followed by a series of more shots with that wood, until Ahmed finally snaps the weapon in half on Scotty's lower back......

.........Cornette is out now......tennis racquet in hand, which he tosses to Ahmed before collecting the WWF Title from the timekeeper and jumping up and down with it on the outside......

.........Ahmed takes the racquet and backs up into the corner, measuring his Summerslam opponent up......and as Steiner slowly struggles to his feet, Ahmed charges across the ring and nails him right in the windpipe with the sports equipment.....which sends Steiner crashing to the mat, clutching at his throat......

..........Jim Ross is appalled by this behaviour......saying that the tennis racquet of Cornette has already take out Kokina......Rikishi......and even the mighty Undertaker......none of whom have been seen since......how is Scott Steiner possibly going to be in any condition to perform in just six days time?.......and Ahmed doesn't look done either......as he drags the wheezing Steiner to his feet......before planting him into the mat with a Pearl River Plunge.......

.......Scotty is down......Scotty is hurt......and as Jim Cornette joins his client in the ring, Ahmed Johnson is standing tall.......and he has the WWF Championship held high overhead.......and is this the sight that awaits us at Summerslam?........we're going to find out in just six days time folks.......call your cable providers now......
