Week 3, March 1997
The Pyramid Arena (Memphis, Tennessee)
ATT: 18,848
TV: 28.20


Quote:





It's Monday Night, but there's no time for recaps, welcome's or pyro' tonight.....because the owner of the World Wrestling Federation, Vincent Kennedy McMahon is standing in the middle of the ring.....and he doesn't look happy......but then neither does the man standing at his side, the World Wrestling Federation Champion, Shawn Michaels.......Brian Pillman, pacing the ring behind them doesn't look best pleased either......rounding up the bunch are Kane, who's mask makes him expressionless.......Lance Storm, who's the only man in the ring who looks pretty pleased with himself........and finally, sat far away in the corner of the ring (frankly looking uninterested in this whole situation, but then he's not exactly known for his social skills) is Raven........

.......Vince immediately makes friends by telling the crowd to shut the hell up because he's got something to say, and he wants the whole world to hear it, without these braying idiots drowning out his voice.......obviously that doesn't go down well.......but eventually the crowd is quiet enough that McMahon can continue.........he begins by saying the the events of last week were a travesty......he says that Cactus Jack, put THE most important wrestler here in the WWF......Shawn Michaels......in great risk of not only injury.....but permanent disfigurement, when he crashed a steel chair over the head of the Champion.......FORTUNATELY.......Raven and his Flock were there to ensure the safety of the Champ........at least until "Little" Poppa Pump came out, overcompensating for his minuscule manhood by once again swinging that lead pipe around.........AGAIN, putting the Reason for the Rating's, Shawn Michaels in harms way........you've got Stone Cold Steve Austin coming out here, sticking his nose in matches, costing my Corporate Cannon the opportunity to become the very first WWF European Champion........well enough is enough........

......firstly he tells Cactus that since he is so fond of fighting on the outside and using illegal objects to gain the advantage......then at Wrestlemania, that’s exactly what he’s going to have to do to survive........because not only is he going to be facing Raven......he’s going to be facing Raven in a falls count anywhere, anything goes.....Raven’s Rules match.......

......and Scott Steiner.....since he’s so fond of attacking people with that pipe of his.....and to ensure that he doesn’t go and get himself intentionally disqualified at Wrestlemania to save his Intercontinental Championship (because we all know that HBK is walking out of Mania a double champion) the Title vs. Title match, Shawn Michaels vs Scott Steiner, will also be no disqualification.......which means Steiner can’t take the easy way out.......of course, that also means that Shawn can’t be disqualified either........no matter WHO should happen to play a part in the match......

.......Vince pauses for a moment to let that throw away comment sink in.....the fact that he is basically admitting (while not in those exact terms) that we can expect to see Shawn Michaels using every dirty trick in the books, AS WELL as every wrestler on Mr. McMahons books, in his match against Steiner......

.......as for tonight, since Cactus Jack and Scott Steiner are such good friends all of a sudden, they will be teaming up in our main event......to face The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels.....and Raven........and to ensure that order is kept........we have The Flock sat right there in the front row.......




......the camera pans to ringside, where we do indeed have Wrath, Crush, Daniels and DeMott sat front row.....looking about as interested in the segment as Raven is.......Vince seems pretty pleased with this, and is carries on to his final point.......and that, is what to do about Stone Cold Steve Austin............
















....::::!!!!GLASS SHATTERS!!!!::::....





”........I’ll tell you what you can do about Stone Cold Steve Austin......you can make the damn match official for Wrestlemania.....Steve Austin vs. Brian Pillman, and I’ll whoop that little raspy voiced son of a b*tch’s ass one more time.........”

......Austin says that since he made damn sure last week that the Corporate Kiss-ass got eliminated from that stupid little European Championship tournament, so unless Brian Pillman wants to be facing the Brooklyn Beawler at Wrestlemania, he’d damn well better step between the ropes with Stone Cold Steve Austin.......

.......Pillman is pacing the ring like a caged animal behind McMahon, and doesn’t need much persuading......in face he’s just as desperate to get his hands on Austin as Austin is to get his hands on him......he tells Stone Cold that he cost him the Intercontinental Championship at In Your House.....he cost him the European Championship last week......at Wrestlemania, Brian Pillman is going to cost Steve Austin his career.........his life.......his fuc.......

.......McMahon holds his hand up, stopping the Corporate Cannon from giving the censors a headache......he says that as much as he loathes giving Steve Austin something that he wants, he can think of nothing better than to watch Brian Pillman destroy that bald headed redneck.......so YES.......at Wrestlemania it will be, Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Corporate Cannon Brian Pillman.......BUT........and it’s a very big but......if Steve Austin places so much as one finger on Brian Pillman between now and then, the match is OFF........and Steve Austin won’t be facing ANYBODY at Wrestlemania......

European Championship: First Round Match

It’s time for our first match of the evening, and our next first round match for the vacant WWF European Championship......the British Bulldog and Mr. Perfect have already progressed to the semi-finals of the tournament, tonight Marty Jannetty and Goldust will be looking to do the same......Goldust hasn’t had a taste of....well, gold around here since exactly twelve months ago, when as the reigning Intercontinental Champion he picked up an injury just two weeks before Wrestlemania which forced him to vacate the Championship.......Jannetty on the other hand has gone much longer without gold around his waist.....and after coming up just short at In Your House in his quest to become WWF Champion against Shawn Michaels, the European Championship may be just what the doctor ordered........

........actually, what the doctor would probably order, is for Jannetty to take a few more weeks off......because it was only two weeks ago that the former Rocker took another dive headfirst through a window courtesy of Shawn Michaels.......and despite putting on a good showing, the story of the match was Jannetty not really being at 100%......and if you face the Bizarre One at anything less than full strength, he’s going to defeat you......just like he did here, when he finished Marty off with the Curtain Call.

Winner: Goldust

From there we are treated to an in ring promo from the Million Dollar Corporation, as Ted DiBiase leads his troops down to the ring.....Deebs says that he will be glad to get Wrestlemania in the books, so that he can finally be done with Ahmed Johnson and the Legion of Doom......Ted says that all four of his men SHOULD have been competing in the European Championship tournament, instead they are reduced to having to dirty their hands on that street rat Ahmed Johnson and his two face painted pets Hawk and Animal........

........Rich Steiner and Double J both have their turn on the mic, while Southern Justice stay silent because, frankly they suck on the stick......but no matter who speaks, the message is the same......they won at In Your House, they’ll win at Wrestlemania.....and if they think that either a “mystery partner” or a street fight stipulation will change that, then they are severely mistaken.........











........well what do you know, them fighting words only go and bring out Ahmed and his face painted pets........as the trio make their way into the stage......Ahmed says that if the Million Dollar Morons can laugh it up all they want.....but everyone knows that the only reason Ahmed Johnson didn’t have his hand raised at In Your House, was because Marc Mero wasn’t up to the task........but their partner at Wrestlemania ain’t no Marc Mero........in fact, he’s worth about two Marc Mero’s........and he knows the Million Dollar Man very, very well..........

















.........and he does as well.......and the Corporation look horrified to see the massive seven foot frame of Psycho Sid come stomping out from the back, to a typically hot Sid reaction from the crowd.....and as the Corporation members loudly protest the newest addition to their Wrestlemania opponents, as Ahmed Johnson simply informs them that.......they’re going down.

From there we head to the back, where much like last week, Mr. Perfect is in the midst of a disagreement with his two clients Billy Gunn and Jesse James.......who are informing Perfect that they have specifically requested this match with the Sons of Samoa tonight......and since their Executive Consultant couldn’t be bothered to join them at ringside last week, they don’t want him there tonight......and they don’t want his less than perfect game plans.....because that was what cost them the match last week......

........Perfect disagrees, saying that the only thing costing them matches around here, is their own arrogance.......Perfect says they have the potential to be one of the greatest teams of all time......future WWF Tag Team Champions........but the key word there is “future”......he says that they aren’t quite there yet, which is why they need to listen to his advice.......FOLLOW his advice, instead of running off half cocked, and then maybe.....MAYBE......they will be able to live up to that potential.......

.......Gunn and James aren’t interested however, telling Perfect to focus on what he’s really interested in, winning the precious European Title......and they’ll worry about themselves.......before storming out of the room to meet their opponents in the ring.

We saw this match last week, and it was Rikishi and Kokina, the Son’s of Samoa who came out victorious there......Billy Gunn and Jesse James will tell you that the only reason they lost however, is because their so called mentor was more focused on winning HIS match than he was in the interests of his clients.......tonight they have demanded that Perfect remain in the back and let them wrestle their own match.......and by the looks of things, their “own” match involves copious amounts of cheating to ensure that Kokina doesn’t really get into the match......while they focus their attack on the “smaller” Rikishi (yes quotation marks......I mean come on, Rikishi can hardly be called small)......

........and not only are they happy to bend the rules, they are perfectly content with out and out breaking them.......because after Gunn cheap shots Kokina in the apron, the 600 pounder tries to get into the ring, which draws the official over to his corner to prevent it......that gives Jesse James the perfect opportunity to sneak up behind Rikishi and nail him with a low blow that doubles Big Kish over.....leaving him in prime position for the Famouser from Billy Gunn......this one is over and Gunn and James have their revenge.

Winner(s): Billy Gunn & Jesse James

As we leave Gunn and James celebrating in the ring, we head to the back, where Barry Windham and Justin Bradshaw are watching the display on a monitor.......we see just long enough for Billy Gunn to proclaim loudly into the camera ”......now that......was absolutely perfect.......” with a huge smirk on his face, before Windham abruptly turns the monitor off shaking his head......

........he turns to his partner, telling him that’s exactly the problem with this “new generation” of wrestler.......no respect for those that paved the way for them to begin with.......Bradshaw doesn’t really answer him, instead he gives more of a grunt......Windham gives him a sideways glance before asking him what the problem is?.......

”........well they’re not wrong are they......they’ve got a man there in Mr. Perfect, who’s SUPPOSED to be managing them......consulting them......whatever the hell he’s doing for them.....but instead he’s half assing it because he’s more interested in winning the European Championship for himself.......this week they went their own way, and look where it got them.......”

.......Windham disagrees, telling Bradshaw that Gunn and James need to learn a bit of respect.....they don’t call him Mr. Perfect because he doesn’t know what he’s doing......and he has the chance to become the very first European Champion, why wouldn’t he go for that?.......Bradshaw snorts at that, saying Windham would say that wouldn’t he.......after all, he’s in the tournament too, busy focused on winning his own title instead of focusing on the Long Riders getting a shot at the Tag Titles......

......Windham lets out a little laugh, asking if that’s what’s got his partner acting so salty?.....he tells Bradshaw not to worry, Barry Windham is more than man enough to carry two championships......and that starts at Wrestlemania, when he becomes the very first European Champion.......

”........that’s great, I’m real pleased for ya (he’s clearly not) and what exactly am I supposed to do at Wrestlemania, while you’re off winning titles? Or had you forgotten about little old me......”

.......Windham tries to reassure his partner, but Bradshaw brushes it off, saying that it’s just like Gunn and James said, you worry about you.......I’ll worry about me.......

”.........come on “partner”........YOU’VE got a match after all.......”

......and with that Bradshaw turns and storms out of the room, leaving Windham with a slightly bemused look on his face.

European Championship: First Round Match

So far, The British Bulldog, Mr. Perfect and Goldust have all moved forward to the semi-final stages of the tournament to crown the very first WWF European Champion......right now we have Marc Mero and Barry Windham both vying for that final spot.......and while Mero seems to be particularly fired up, presumably from Ahmed Johnson’s less than glowing opinion of him, Barry Windham appears to be somewhat distracted by the comments made by his partner just a few short minutes ago.......

......it doesn’t stop him from putting on a pretty good performance though, as the veteran puts Mero through his paces.....Mero to his credit doesn’t back down an inch and the two men end up slugging it out in the middle of the ring, when Windham grabs hold of Mero’s tights and launches him through the ropes and onto the floor........where he collides with Bradshaw........who slightly over reacts by taking a few steps back, before turning Mero inside out with a Lariat.......right in front of the official.......who calls for the bell, disqualifying a shocked looking Windham, sending Mero straight into the Semi-Finals.

Winner: Marc Mero
Rating: B

Windham and Bradshaw are having a very public disagreement in the ring, after Barry’s own partner unintentionally (although that’s debatable) cost him the match.......we leave the Texans arguing in the ring and head to the back where Dok Hendrix is standing by with one half of tonight’s main event, Big Poppa Pump Scott Steiner and Cactus Jack......Dok asks both men how they feel about their respective Wrestlemania matches being essentially anything goes matches.....asking Steiner if he thinks the no DQ stipulation will mean that Shawn Michaels will be looking for some.......”assistance” from Vince McMahons cabinet of wrestlers.......

”.........ASSISTANCE?......THERE AIN’T NO ASSISTANCE IN THE WORLD GOING TO STOP SCOTT STEINER FROM RIPPING THAT SCRAWNY LITTLE PRETTY BOY’S HEAD CLEAN OFF HIS SHOULDERS......SHAWN MICHAELS HAS BEEN WALKING AROUND WITH MY WWF CHAMPIONSHIP AROUND HIS WAIST SINCE THE DAY I KICKED HIS ASS AT THE KING OF THE RING......WELL AT WRESTLEMANIA, I’M GOING TO PROVE TO THE WORLD THAT HE AIN’T THE ICON.....HE AIN’T THE REASON FOR THE RATINGS.....OR THE SHOWSTOPPER......HE’S CERTAINLY NOT THE BEST.......IN FACT, BIG POPPA PUMP SCOTT STEINER IS GONNA SHOW THE WORLD, THAT THE BEST PART OF SHAWN MICHAELS, RAN DOWN THE BACK OF HIS FAT MOM’S LEG AFTER HIS DADDY PULLED OUT AND SLAPPED HER DIMPLED ASS........”

.........it’s not often that Dok is going to look to Cactus Jack to be the voice of reason, but sometimes it’s best to get the live microphone away from Scott Steiner before he gets too carried away......he asks Cactus about his upcoming Falls Count Anywhere, Anything Goes, Raven’s Rules match......does that give Raven the edge?

”.......I don’t know how many times I’m going to have to repeat myself around here Dok, until people start to listen.....people should be careful what they wish for......does Vince McMahon or Raven really think that putting Cactus Jack in an anything goes match is supposed to be a punishment? Do you have any idea of the kinds of pain and punishment that I can unleash with no boundaries? Raven wanted the monster......he wanted the darkness......but I don’t think he’s prepared for how dark this is going to get......”

........Dok tells Cactus that with all due respect, Raven is not your average man....the Flock are not your average group.....and Raven’s Rules, is a normal kind of match.......

”.........normal? Normal is just an illusion Dok.....what’s normal for the spider, is chaos for the fly......and Cactus Jack, has always been an agent of chaos........”

......with that Cactus brings a two by four wrapped in barbed wire into shot, resting it on his shoulder.......

”..........and while Scott Steiner has his lead pipe......I’ve always got Old Yeller here by my side.......and She’s got a taste for blood.......Bang! Bang!......”

“............HEY DOK, SPEAKING OF MY PIPE, DOES THIS LOOK LIKE I NEED TO OVER-COMPENSATE FOR ANYTHING TO YOU?.......”


“............oh sweet Jesus man, put that away!.....”


........Scott Steiner has his massive back to the camera, but his hands are pulling his tights away from his waist, giving Dok a birds eye view of Poppa’s Big Pump.....Hendrix shakes his head, telling the camera that they really need to find a new interviewer for Scott Steiner, before signing off and sending us back to ring side.......

We head down to ringside now for some singles action, as Savio Vega goes up against Lance Storm......there’s no real backstory to this one, it’s just a match for pride......and since Lance Storm claims to be the Pride of Canada, you would have to fancy his chances in this one.....in fact he’s doing rather well for himself.....



.......a bit to well for Chris Jericho’s tastes by the looks of it, because the “Embarrassment” of Canada (if you believe Lance Storm) makes his way down to ringside to try and spur Savio on a little bit.......Jericho has developed a rather unhealthy obsession with Lance Storm.....and obsession that sees him desperate to finally put one over on his former Thrillseeker partner........so much so that he actually goes out of his way to interfere in this match........reaching into the ring to trip Storm after an Irish Whip attempt.......unfortunately for Jericho......and Savio......Storm has reversed the attempt, and it was Vega who stumbled to the mat, leaving him easy pickings for the Canadian Maple Leaf.

Winner: Lance Storm

Storm is out of the ring as quick as a flash, smirking all the way up the aisle......Jericho on the other hand his kicking at the steel ring steps in frustration......before rolling under the bottom rope.......not to check on Savio however, which you think would be his intention after costing the man the match, but rather to berate the man still laying on the mat, still clutching at his leg........

..........he screams at Vega, demanding to know what he thought he was doing......Jericho said he was here to help and Savio screwed it all up......before finally snapping and stomping on the already weakened leg of Vegas series of times........Jericho suddenly stops and takes a deep breath, seemingly to compose himself.......but it doesn’t work.......and instead he quickly locks Vega in the Liontamer......wrenching back and screaming out Lance Storms name as Jim Ross sends us to commercial.

We are back from commercial and we find ourselves in the locker room of the KLiQ, where we find Shawn Michaels, Sunny, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman........no Justin Credible to be seen however.....although given the fact that he took ANOTHER ride through the wood last week on Raw that’s probably not a huge surprise........

........Shawn does not appear to be happy.....and is letting Hall and Waltman know in no uncertain terms that they let him down last week.......he says that the two of them not only allowed Cactus Jack to bend a steel chair over his head.......but they were then nowhere to be seen.......instead he had to rely on the Flock to stop that maniac.......The Flock! Have Hall and Waltman seen the Flock? They look like rejects from the local homeless shelter......and that without taking into account the fact that Justin Credible got another ass kicking........

”........and you saw that glove......that hand......you know as well as I do who’s big paw that was.......he’s supposed to be fired, terminated.......gone.......and yet he’s still here causing trouble.......he’s already kicked Justin’s ass twice........kicked your two sorry asses single handedly.......who’s next? ME?......The Champ?.......I don’t think so......so you two need to get with the programme.........”

.......Hall and Waltman have been on one too many of these dressing downs over the last twelve months and get to their feet, snatching their Tag Titles as they do so......Hall tells Michaels that not only does Waltman have a triple threat match tonight to worry about......but they also have a three way Championship match with the Hart Foundation and the Nation of Domination at Wrestlemania to prepare for......so how about for once, Shawn Michaels solves Shawn Michaels problems.......because Hall and Waltman, they’re getting sick of babysitting him........

.......with that the duo storm out of the room, leaving Shawn with a rather dumbfounded look on his face. Sunny tries to comfort him but he shrugs her off, screaming at the open door that Shawn Michaels doesn’t need a babysitter.......he doesn’t need anything.......he doesn’t need ANYONE........before finally calming down and turning to Sunny.....and despite the fact that he’s just claimed that he needs no help from anybody, tells her to make sure Pillman and Storm are at hand later.........

It’s time for a sneak preview of Wrestlemania now.....or more specifically, a sneak preview of our WWF Tag Team Championship match......as one member from each team has a representative in this one.....it’s Owen for the Hart Foundation, vs. Sean Waltman from the KLiQ vs. finally The Rock from The Nation.......

........each man has their respective partner with them.....in fact the Rock has the entire Nation.....which leads to a very crowded ringside area......so crowded in fact that the official finally has enough of the roughhousing on the outside and sends Scorpio, Kama and Nelson to the back in an attempt to limit the carnage on the floor......

.......that leaves the three men inside the ring with less distractions other than each other, and leads to a much better contest......while the Harts certainly earned their way to that Championship bout at Wrestlemania.....and the KLiQ have arguably dominated the Tag Team Division in one incarnation or another for the last twelve months.....it’s actually the Nation that have been slowly building momentum in recent weeks.....attacking both the Harts and the KLiQ a few weeks back on Raw, as well as picking up the victory in the big eight man Tag match a week later......

........and they continue in the same tradition here......although it’s hardly a clean affair......because with Scott Hall and The Hitman engages in a shoving match on the outside, and Owen down after a Rock Bottom, Sean Waltman catches the Rock with a Victory Roll.......before the official can see it however, Faarooq is in the ring like a shot, nailing Waltman in the back of the head with a Big Boot, then reversing the pin, rolling the Rock on top and exiting the ring, just as the official turns around to register the three count.

Winner: The Rock

It’s promo time again.....this time we head to the back where Raven is in his usual darkened room......there is no Flock however, they are still sat front row at ringside......instead he sits alone on the floor with his back to the wall......he looks directly into the camera, saying that he wants to address Cactus Jack......he says he has heard Cactus, week in and week out......

”......’be careful what you wish for’.......except I don’t wish Mick, wishes are for children and morons......I demand......and I receive.......let me make this perfectly clear......I know Cactus Jack.......I know the depths of depravity that Cactus Jack will sink too.......I know that Cactus Jack is the devil incarnate.......but sometimes you just have to dance with the devil.....even when you know exactly what is going to happen.......

It’s main event time now, and if we ever had more contradicting Tag Team partners before, then I can’t remember when......in fact, you could argue that Shawn Michaels and Scott Steiner (if you take away their obvious hatred of each other) would make better partners......while Raven and Cactus Jack’s unique move sets should make THEM the perfect pairing......but of course, this is the WWF.....and we all know by now that anything can happen in the World Wrestling Federation........

.......Shawn Michaels may be playing nice with Raven and the Flock right now, but that’s only because it benefits him.....and the fact that he is having to team with the denim clad Raven......(who frankly looks like he needs a good bath)......clearly irritates him.....but then this IS the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels......everything irritates him.....

........we have a quick shot of the Flock, just to remind us that they are still sat ringside.....before the bell rings and these two “teams” explode, as Scott Steiner makes a beeline for Shawn Michaels.....and Cactus Jack and Raven pounce at each other like wild animals......it takes some time before the official is able to regain some semblance of control in the match, but eventually Michaels and Raven manage to isolate Scott Steiner and take control of the match.....and it’s an odd sight to see Cactus Jack stood idly on the ring apron desperate to get back into the match.......

.........Michaels and Raven do actually work surprisingly well as a team.....and while Raven is known more for his hardcore brawling style of fighting, people forget that he DOES know how to wrestle when needed.....Shawn takes every opportunity going to taunt Big Poppa Pump, telling him that he should have been happy with the Intercontinental Title, because now he’s stuck his nose in the business of The Man.......and The Man is going to take that title too......

........eventually the match breaks down (as they often do) and the action once again descends into a four way brawl.......which is when the Flock slowly, one by one, begin to climb over the guard rail.......Cactus sees them coming and drops to the floor, reaching underneath the ring where he pulls out Old Yeller, his barbed wire covered two by four......and with the officials attention distracted Raven slides into the ring with a steel chair. He spins Scott Steiner around and attempts to smash the weapon over his head, but Steiner blocks the shot, snatches the chair from his hands......and nails Raven in the gut, doubling him over.........Steiner raises the chair once more and turns to find Michaels.........


........which is when Shawn comes flying across the ring with some Sweet Chin Music......kicking the chair right into Big Poppa Pumps head........

.........Scotty drops the weapon, and he’s groggy, but he doesn’t go down.......at least until Raven delivers a brutal Evenflow DDT onto the fallen chair........Michaels makes the cover as Raven drags the official over to make the count......and three seconds later, Shawn Michaels has just pinned his Wrestlemania Challenger........and as Rick Rude points out, had this been the Title vs. Title match, we would be looking at a new Intercontinental Champion right here.

The second the bell rings The Flock charge Cactus as one......unfortunately Cactus still has Old Yeller......and one by one the Flock fall.....first Daniels, then DeMott......Wrath and Crush.......but Raven and Michaels are still in the ring......that’s six men to Cactus’s one.......and Raven nails Jack from behind with a steel chair......he instructs his followers to drag Cactus to his feet, which they do.......and as Wrath and Crush grab hold of an arm each, opening Jack up crucifix style, Raven walks up to face his opponent, before smirking and telling him to ”......be careful what YOU wish for.......” and with Cactus wide open and helpless, Raven swings an almighty blow with the chair, nailing Jack so hard right between the eyes that he dents the steel.......and Cactus Jack collapses in a heap on the floor........


.........back inside the ring Shawn has been raining blows on his Wrestlemania opponent.....but now decides that enough is enough, and begins waving to the entrance way.....presumably for Brian Pillman, Lance Storm and “The Big Guy” (who you would have to assume is Kane)........bizarrely however, nobody shows.........and Michaels is getting more and more frustrated........until the video screen flickers to life..........







..........to reveal the Corporate Cannon, banging wildly on the window of a door backstage.......eyes bugging out of his head because he can’t get out.......he can’t get out because Stone Cold Steve Austin has parked a huge yellow forklift truck right in front of the door, and is currently sat in the driver seat, staring Pillman in the face, screaming at him that ”.......I ain’t laid a damn finger on ya you stupid son of a b*tch.......but here’s two fingers for ya.....” as he flips Brian the double bird..........before the shot abruptly changes..........

........Scotty quickly grabs hold of his trusty lead pipe, and stands tall in the middle of the ring, swinging the weapon wildly at anyone stupid enough to try and get into the ring.....before Michaels has finally seen enough, grabbing his Championship from the time keeper and Sunny by the arm, dragging them both back to the locker room and out of harms way......embarrassed once more by Scott Steiner.......as the show comes to an end.

The road to Wrestlemania is really heating up, and the boys put on a top notch performance this week from start to close.....the triple threat match, considering it involved the......”lesser” members of the respective teams let’s say......came off a lot better than I thought it would, especially when you consider that it was The Rock (who is easily at the bottom of the pecking order when it comes to those three) was the one to pick up the win......

......I have to be honest, I had my concerns about the main event as well, especially considering the clashes of styles involved.....but I shouldn’t have been worried.....all three men worked their tails off......and Raven continued to prove that his recent push to the main event scene was deserved, by putting in the performance of the night......

.....Chris Jericho has really bulked up recently, he’s looking far more muscular than he was twelve months ago.....but then he’s young, twelve months ago he was still carrying a little bit of baby fat......now he’s looking more like a star than ever.....it won’t be long before he’s knocking on my door asking to headline another Pay Per View at this rate......that’s if I’m not knocking at his first......

.......Kane’s contract is up for renewal, and he’s had WCW knocking at his door already.....trying to compete with Turners massive cheque book is becoming somewhat of an irritation now......because I’ve had to offer the Big Red Machine a Big Green Pay rise in his new and improved contract offer.....I’m fairly confident that he’s going to stick with us (he wants to considering I’ve turned him from a jobbing Dentist to a god damn star) but until the ink is drying on that contract there is always a chance he will jump ship.......

.......speaking of jumping ship......are we going to see the Horsemen ride again, this time in the WWF? Well no, because you know.....Copy-write infringement......

........we are however going to see the Nature Boy (Woooooooo) Ric Flair and Arn Anderson limousine riding all the way to Connecticut......I honestly thought it was going to be a tougher sell to convince Vince that the 48 year old Ric Flair would still be relevant in today’s product, but Vince appears to have a soft spot for the Nature Boy, saying that when Flair left in early 1993, Vince told him that he would always have a home in the WWF should he want one.......Arn was a tougher sell, but Ric was adamant that if he was getting out of the shambles that is WCW, he wasn’t going to leave his friend behind to be Bischoffs whipping boy.......Vince begrudgingly respected Flairs loyalty, and so here we are......sadly neither man will be available until after Wrestlemania, but that can’t be helped......

.......the news has generated quite the buzz in the locker rooms, with Shawn Michaels in particular (in a rare showing of humility) telling me that Ric Flair was a huge part of his wanting to get into the business.....Barry Windham was also pleased to hear that his former Horsemen buddies were WWF bound......one former Horseman wasn’t so pleased however......in fact Sid was damn right p*ssed......he and Arn have never made up after the (ahem) “scissor incident”......and he and Flair still aren’t on great terms either as a result of that.......but Sid will just have to suck it up, because I don’t hear anyone else complaining........

.......anyway, we have one more Raw before the Big One.....on with the show.......

OOC: So the people have spoken......and Ric Flair and Arn Anderson are signed (save for the notice period)......in reality both men’s contracts just happened to come up on the very same day, and while obviously I didn’t actually have to sign Arn as well, I figured why not throw a little self made spanner in the works, because I figured if this was all going down IRL, Flair would probably want to take Arn with him on his way out......especially because Flair and Bischoff don’t like each other in this game (go figure) and Bischoff being Bischoff would have probably punished Arn for Flairs leaving......hence the package deal.

Amazing work as always.

I’d LOVE LOVE LOVE to see Raven go after Sunny and HBK, either as a face or heel. With your writing that could make some great reading.

Week 4, March 1997
Key Arena (Seattle, Washington)
ATT: 15,724
TV: 28.09


Quote:




We are just six days away from the biggest event of the year, Wrestlemania 13......and there is an excitement in the air.......an excitement that is soon turned into a chorus of boos.....because Vince McMahon makes his way down to the ring to open up the show, along with the WWF Champion Shawn Michaels, The Corporate Cannon Brian Pillman, and the Big Red Monster Kane. The foursome enter the ring and McMahon cuts right to the chase.....there’s no time to pander to the crowd, he’s got business to attend to, and that business is Scott Steiner......Vince says he’s humoured Steiner's little March to Wrestlemania so far.....he’s tolerated the vulgarity and profanities......he’s turned a blind eye to the toilet humour and penis jokes......but with only six days until his Title vs. Title match at Wrestlemania, he took things a step to far last week, picking Shawn Michaels up over his head and tossing him to the outside like a piece of garbage.......well tonight, it’s Scott Steiner that’s going to be tossed around......because he’s going to be going one on one with the Big Red Monster Kane......

.......Vince hands the microphone to a smirking Shawn Michaels, who tells Steiner not to worry about Kane too much though.......

”........because while he IS going to mess you up tonight........and he is.........he’s promised me that he’s gonna leave just enough of you to make it to Wrestlemania, where the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels is gonna take your title, and finish the job......because let’s face it, I’ve been the World Wrestling Federation Champion for one solid year now.......twelve months at the top of the mountain.....so do you really think that taking the Intercontinental Championship is going to pose ANY problem for the Showstopper? I don’t think so......”

.......Michaels goes on to say that Scott Steiner’s ONLY claim to fame in this business, is picking up a fluke victory over the Heartbreak Kid nine months ago at the King of the Ring........

”........and even THEN you were too dumb to read the fine print on the contract......now sure you’ve improved a little bit since then......you’ve bleached your hair......you’ve been.......taking your ‘vitamins’.......”Brother”.......you’ve even gone and got yourself a shiny new title.....but that’s where the fairy tail ends big boy.......”

.......Shawn says that for the last 365 days (give or take a day) he’s defeated everyone there is to beat.....from the Undertakers to the Marty Jannetty’s......with the odd King thrown in for good measure......and no one.....NO ONE......has been able to take this title from him.......and come Wrestlemania, he’s gonna be wearing one more shiny piece of gold.....Scott Steiner’s WWF Intercontinental Championship.....

.......Vince takes back the microphone to round up the promo, saying that come main event time, he, Brian Pillman......and the Heartbreak Kid himself will be sat right there at ringside.......

”......and before anyone gets any stupid ideas in their head, may I remind you all......especially you Austin......that if Stone Cold Steve Austin lays so much as ONE FINGER on Brian Pillman, that Wrestlemania match that he wants so badly......is off......so Austin, I suggest you remain in the back tonight, no matter WHAT goes down out here......”

European Championship: Semi-Final Match

It’s time for the first of tonight’s two Semi-Final matches, where the winner of each match will be heading to Wrestlemania to compete in the tournament final, where we will crown our very first, WWF European Champion......this match sees The British Bulldog, Davey Boy Smith, going up against the Bizarre One, Goldust.......Davey Boy eliminated Vince McMahons personal pick Brian Pillman to get here, while Goldust eliminated a less than 100% Marty Jannetty.....

.......with a spot on the Wrestlemania card on the line, both men went hard for this one....Goldust is arguably the better wrestler of the pair, but the Bulldog had the strength advantage.......and despite The Bizarre One’s best efforts, it was strength that came out on top tonight, as the Bulldog booked his spot in the tournament finals after a Running Powerslam.

Winner: The British Bulldog
Rating: B

Quote:




With The British Bulldog heading into Wrestlemania to attempt to capture the WWF European Championship, that means that the entire Hart Foundation will be competing in Title matches at the biggest show of the year, because Bret and Owen will be looking to bring the WWF Tag Team Titles home to Canada as well.....of course that might be easier said than done, because not only do they have to defeat the KLiQ, but they have the Nation of Domination to contend with as well......

.......and speaking of the Nation, they are out in force next, as the entire group makes their way down to the ring. Faarooq takes the microphone and says that in just six days, the Nation of Domination are FINALLY going to get a little bit of recognition around here......because at Wrestlemania, not only is Scorpio going to walk out with the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship......because he is officially throwing his hat into the multi-man ladder match......but Faarooq and The Rock are finally going to put the ‘great white hope’ The Hart Foundation, out to pasture......as well as sticking it to the man, when they take those WWF Tag Team Titles away from the KLiQ......

”........because you can only hold a brother down for so long.....and The Nation of Domination has been held down, overlooked, segregated and been treated like second class citizens for too long around here.....we have won match after match.....our record speaks for itself, so much so that we SHOULD have been handed Title opportunity after Title opportunity.....instead we had to sit back and watch The Harts get embarrassed by the KLiQ, week in and week out......get defeated by The KLiQ week in and week out........and STILL get another shot at the gold a week later.......you know why? Because while ‘the man’ knows that the KLiQ can beat the Hart Foundation in their sleep, he knows damn well that the Nation would only need ONE shot.......and that one shot is happening in six days time.......”

Faarooq hands the microphone over to the Rock, slapping him on the back and instructing him to tell these morons what’s going to happen........

”........what’s going to happen, is the Nation of Domination.......The Rock and Faarooq......are going to show the world that the Nation don’t need ANYTHING handed to them.......unlike the Hart Foundation and The KLiQ......Bret and Owen Hart are supposed to be banned from competing for any titles held by the KLiQ.....this was SUPPOSED to be the Nations title shot....but since Scott Hall and Sean Waltman know full well that The Rock could kick their candy asses single handedly if he wanted, they went running back to their sugar daddy Vince McMahon, and got their little whipping boys added into the match to give them a chance of winning.....well The Rock says that The KLiQ and The Harts have about as much chance of walking out of Wrestlemania with those titles, as Justin Credible has of losing his virginity.....it’s just not gonna happen..........

.........three weeks ago the Nation beat the ever loving crap out of The Harts and Hall and Waltman......two weeks ago we beat them both fair and square in the middle of the ring.......and last week, last week the Rock single handedly took Owen Harts head and shoved it straight up Sean Waltman’s ass......tonight, Faarooq is going to do exactly the same thing to Bret Hart and Scott Hall.....granted, not with the same flair and excitement as The Rock, but the result will be the same.......just like the result will be the same at Wrestlemania, when The Rock.........and Farrooq, walk out the new WWF Tag Team Champions........”


......and with that the Nation raise their fists in unison, as we end the promo segment (surprisingly without any interruptions) and head to commercial.

Mark Canterbury makes a rare singles appearance now, as he goes one on one with one with Ahmed Johnson.....these two men will be facing off again in six days time, but under very different circumstances....as Canterbury will be joining forces with the rest of the Million Dollar Corporation, to go to war against Ahmed Johnson, The Legion of Doom.....and Psycho Sid......(all of whom are out at ringside tonight)....in an eight man street fight......tonight is no street fight however.....it's just two big, powerful men, stiffing the crap out of each other......until Ahmed finally puts his opponent away with an impressive (considering his opponents size) Pearl River Plunge.....a good win for Johnson with Wrestlemania right around the corner.

Winner: Ahmed Johnson
Rating: B

Quote:





Psycho Sid and the LoD join Ahmed in the ring, while Johnson stands celebrating like he just won the Super Bowl......(calm down big man, you just beat Henry Godwin after all)......before he grabs a microphone and tells the Million Dollar Chumps to go ahead and climb between those ropes.....because we can start Wrestlemania right here and right now......

......in fairness to the Corporation, they do look as though they are formulating a plan of attack.....at least until DiBiase finally withdraws his troops, telling them to save it for Wrestlemania......that's when the big pay day is.......

.......Ahmed starts laughing at the sight of the Corporations retreat, claiming that it's the smartest thing those fools have done in a long time......he says that there ain't no Marc Mero's in this ring......he says everybody knows that Ahmed Johnson is a winner......and at Wrestlemania he's finally found himself a winning team, that WON'T let him down......

......with that Ahmed tosses the microphone to one side and resumes his rather overly-enthusiastic celebration, while Sid, Hawk and Animal exchange a look amongst themselves.....a look that Jim Ross puts into words for us, proclaiming that Ahmed appears to be very confident heading into Wrestlemania......almost to the point of being rather uncharacteristically cocky.

Rating: B+

Quote:




We leave Ahmed to his celebration and we head to the back, where Mr. Perfect is lacing up his boots ready for his upcoming match with Marc Mero......he straightens up and turns around, walking straight into Billy Gunn and Jesse James.....both men clap their Consultant (rather harder than necessary) on the shoulder, smiling at him and wishing him luck in his upcoming match......Perfect looks sceptical, stating that they appear to have changed their tune since last week......James says that he and Billy talked it over, and the way they see it.....is that if even their manager has a title, it'll only be a matter of time before they are granted a Tag Title shot.....

......Perfect looks less than pleased about Jesse James's thinly veiled insult.....Mr. Perfect is much more than just a manager after all....but Gunn and James smile even wider, before offering their hands to Perfect, telling him "no hard feelings?"....Perfect is hesitant, but finally shakes both men by the hand, telling them that if they don't mind, he has a spot in the European Championship finals to win......

......he turns away from the smiling pair and heads off for his match.....Gunn and James shout words of encouragement, at least until Perfect is out of sight and earshot.....then the fake smiles fade and the two men exchange a look that is far more serious.....almost as if they are formulating a plan of some description.....

European Championship: Semi-Final Match

We know that the winner of this match will be heading into Wrestlemania to compete for the newly minted WWF European Championship against The British Bulldog.....the question is, will it be Marc Mero or Mr. Perfect that is stood across the ring from Davey Boy Smith? Mero has had somewhat of a fire lit under him recently, following the less than complimentary things that Ahmed Johnson has had to say about him.....Perfect on the other hand has got to have the words and actions of his two wards running through his mind, following Gunn and James's declaration that Mr. Perfect is not so perfect when it comes to guiding the careers of others.....

.....when it comes to guiding his own career however, Perfect has no such problems, which is why despite Mero's best efforts, it's the former two time Intercontinental Champion who books his place in the European Title match at Wrestlemania, finishing off his opponent with the Perfect Plex.

Winner: Mr. Perfect
Rating: B

Quote:




Perfect picks up the victory, while Mero looks crestfallen as he heads to the back.....passing Billy Gunn and Jesse James at the entrance way, as the pair have made their way out onto the ramp. They stand at the top of the aisle with huge (obviously fake) smiles on their face, giving their Executive Consultant a rather slow and sarcastic round of applause, before Gunn shouts something along the lines of ".....well done.....absolutely perfect......" before proclaiming that it's nice that ONE of them will be going to Wrestlemania "......WE aren't.....but Mr. Perfect is, so that all that matters right Curt?...."







......which is when The Texas Long Riders music starts to play, as Barry Windham and Justin Bradshaw make their way out for their upcoming match with the Legion of Doom.....Windham pauses beside Gunn and James, telling them that they want to have a bit more damn respect around here.....to which the two men wiggle their fingers at him in mock fear, before laughing and walking to the back.....the Riders hit the ring and Windham congratulates Perfect on his victory, before we head to commercial as the live crowd awaits the arrival of the Legion of Doom.....

Rating: B+

Quote:


VS.

We come back from commercial to the instantly recognisable sounds of the Legion of Dooms music.....as Hawk and Animal come thundering down the aisle......The Road Warriors have a date city the Million Dollar Corporation at Wrestlemania.....a violent date, because they're going to be competing in an eight man street fight......the Long Riders on the other hand don't really have anything to do.....especially since Bradshaw (he would say inadvertently) cost Windham the opportunity to be competing for the World Wrestling Federation European Championship.....

......speaking of that, it only happened last week.....and there is still a little bit of tension between the two big Texans.....so much so that the two struggle to stay on the same page here....in fact Bradshaw doesn't particularly go out of his way to prevent the Doomsday Device that the Legion of Doom use to put Barry Windham away for the three count.

Winner(s): The Legion of Doom
Rating: B

Quote:




The Doomers head to the back with a good victory in the bag heading into Wrestlemania, while Bradshaw reluctantly helps his partner to his feet, reprimanding him for the loss at the same time........which is when Billy Gunn and Jesse James again appear on the entrance ramp.....they double over with laughter, slapping their knees and clutching at their sides....before straightening up and once again unleashing that long sarcastic round of applause, asking Windham ".....how's that respect feeling about now? Pretty painful right?......hey Bradshaw, you need a new partner man, this ones looking a little bit past his prime......" before breaking out in laughter again, slapping each other on the back and returning to the locker rooms, leaving Windham looking less that impressed......and Bradshaw struggling to repress a smirk.

Rating: A (huh?......yeah I have no idea either)

Quote:




From there we head over to Dok Hendrix in the back, who is standing by with the Hart Foundation ahead of Bret's triple threat match with Scott Hall and Faarooq next......it's your basic hype promo.....they say that Wrestlemania is going to be a night to remember for the Hart Foundation......because not only is Davey Boy Smith going to walk out, the first ever WWF European Champion, but Bret and Owen are going to kill two birds with one stone......when they finally shut the mouth of not only the KLiQ, but the Nation of Domination as well.....walking out as your brand new World Wrestling Federation Tag Team Champions......just like Bret Hart is going to walk out victorious tonight.

Rating: A

VS.


Last week it was the partners of tonight's competitors in action.....in what turned out to be a very good match.....it's safe to say however that this match here was even better, because Bret Hart, Scott Hall and Faarooq put on a great showing.....unlike last week there is nobody at ringside, because Gorilla Monsoon has decreed that Owen Hart, Sean Waltman.....and the ENTIRE Nation of Domination are barred from ringside.......which should have ensured we have free from interference.....this is the WWF however, and everyone knows that the KLiQ always have a backup plan......

........which is why the screwy ending should come as no surprise to anyone.....and after the Hitman moves out of the way of a charging Faarooq, (which sees The Nation leader crash with force between the turnbuckles and into the steel ring post, before rolling to the outside to recover) a fan tosses what appears to be a set of Brass Knuckles.....which Hall catches, before using them to lay the Hitman out cold.........and as the "fan" pulls down his hood to reveal that he is actually a bruised looking Justin Credible, Scott Hall makes the cover and picks up a great victory just six days before the KLiQ's epic showdown with the Nation and the Hart Foundation.

Winner: Scott Hall
Rating: A

Quote:




From there it's time for a meeting of the minds......and dark, twisted, depraved minds at that.....because Cactus Jack makes his way down to the ring......inviting Raven to join him......not to fight, because while Cactus would like nothing more than to carve a red path of gore through Raven's face, he's perfectly capable of waiting six days until Wrestlemania.....where he has carte blanche to unleash all manner of torture and torment.....

"......so please, join me.....because before I drag you through purgatory, I think it's important that you know why..........."







.......ask and you shall receive......because here is the man himself......not in person however.....no, instead the videoscreen flickers to life and we are treated to a shot of Raven.....the room is dark as always do it's difficult to determine where in the arena he actually is, but he obviously has something to say.......

".......'be careful what you wish for'......that seems to be some kind of mantra for you recently Mick......'be careful what you wish for'.......but the question is, are you talking to ME when you say that.....or are you talking to yourself? You see Mick, the cactus Jack I know would have no interest in talking.....the Cactus Jack I know, wouldn't be able to wait until Wrestlemania.....the Cactus Jack I know.....would take that barbed wire two by four of his and use it to inscribe his name upon my flesh.........see Mick, those who can control their passions and desires, do so because their passions and desires are weak enough to be controlled.....so I ask you again.....'be careful what you wish for'.......who exactly are you warning?.....

.......see Mick......and yes, I'm talking to Mick Foley.....because for all the bravado, all the warnings and threats.....that is NOT Cactus Jack in the ring there right now......THAT, is Mick Foley......husband......father.......provider..... ..THAT, is Mick Foley, desperately trying to hang on to his last thread of moral fibre.....but you're teetering on the edge of a cliff Mick......and really all I've got to do......is give you a little push........"


......Cactus shakes his head, telling Raven that he couldn't be more wrong.....he wanted the darkness.....he wanted the monster.....he wanted Cactus Jack......well Cactus Jack is what he's got......and at Wrestlemania.....when anything goes......he's going to see exactly what Cactus Jack, the King of the Deathmatch.....is all about.

......Raven chuckles at that.....telling Cactus that he's saying all the right things, but it's just that.....talk.......

"........Cactus Jack doesn't talk Mick.....he just does.......and he's there.....he's knocking at the door.....now you've barricaded that door shut pretty tight....but with each blow he's getting closer and closer to breaking through to the other side.....what's it going to take Mick.....for you to let him free......"

.......with that the camera abruptly pans back.....and we see that Raven doesn't appear to be in the arena at all.......in fact he's sat in what appears to be a front room......but the disturbing part, is he's not alone.........the Flock are gathered behind him in a semi circle, with an attractive blonde lady sat alone in a chair......there is a gag around her mouth.....and her mascara has left long black trails down her face where the tears have obviously run freely.......and when Cactus sees this, he absolutely explodes.....screaming at the top of his lungs that Raven has taken this too far......but Raven cuts him off........

"........see this right here.....this is Collette Foley......and sleeping just down the hall there, we have Dewey Foley and Noelle Foley.......and this blissful little suburban slice of paradise, is exactly why YOU are not Cactus Jack.........YOU are Mick Foley......and I DO NOT WANT YOU.......WHAT ABOUT ME MICK? WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?.......

.......this is what you're trying to hold on to? THIS? I offer you immortality and you choose mediocrity? You choose normality? So predictable........so disappointing......so dull........monsters don't have wives......they don't have children......they don't get to have a happily ever after........all this......it can disappear with a click of the finger.......and then......then I wonder.....who will be walking into Wrestlemania.......Mick Foley? Or Cactus Jack.........'be careful what you wish for'........because Mick, you might just find that Jack......is only one heartbreak away........Quote the Raven.......Nevermore........"


........with that Raven begins cackling maniacally, before standing to his feet and walking towards Collette......just as the screen fades to black......



There is silence for a moment.....as Cactus drops to his knees in the ring, and Jim Ross apologises to everyone at home for that rather disturbing display by Raven, stating that neither he, nor the WWF as a whole condone that kind of behaviour......in the meantime a number of backstage workers have hit the ring, presumably to escort Cactus backstage, where you would hope a car would be waiting to get him home as quickly as possible.......in the blink of an eye however, Cactus goes from passive, to anything but......as he lets out an animalistic scream.....before absolutely decimating the men in the ring with him........before dragging one poor worker to the outside.....where he piledrives him on the floor......not content however, he reaches under the ring......and there is Old Yeller.......Cactus takes the two by four and stares at it for a moment........before finally taking it, and gouging it into the head of the already injured worker.......there are screams......both from the worker AND from Jack, as blood spills down the arm of Cactus......before it finally ends.....as suddenly as it started......and Cactus gets to his feet with a wild look in his eyes.....and storms to the back........it looks like Mick Foley has left the building......I think Cactus Jack is in the driving seat now......and that could spell the end for Raven.......

Rating: A*

VS.

After that rather disturbing turn of events we are treated to an extended hype package for Wrestlemania, to give everybody time to clear the ring area......then, just as promised, Vince McMahon, Shawn Michaels and The Corporate Cannon Brian Pillman make their way out, where Vince and Shawn join Jim Ross and Rick Rude at the announce table, while Pillman just sort of does what Brian Pillman does best.....and that's hop around like a madman, antagonising fans and generally being an obnoxious p*ick......

......the two men involved in this main event, Scott Steiner and Kane, make their entrances....and as McMahon and Michaels proceed to run Big Poppa Pump down throughout the match, this one gets underway.....we have already had one very, very good match tonight, which saw Scott Hall pick up a victory in the triple threat match.....and right here we have another very, very good match.....since breaking away from the Tag Team ranks, Scott Steiner has really found his niche as a singles wrestler....and with the calibre of wrestler that Steiner has been competing with in the last nine months, it's no real surprise that he has improved in leaps and bounds.....he may have been a tag team specialist before, but he's found a new level of psychology as of late that means he really knows how to carry a match......

.......and that certainly helps here, because Kane, while no rookie, certainly doesn't have the ring awareness that Steiner now possesses, not that you would know it with the performance that these two big men put on. Steiner certainly needs all of his ample strength to stand a chance here, because make no mistake, this is a blatant attempt by Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels, to wear the man down just six days before the biggest match of his career.....and wear Steiner down Kane does, putting a punishment on Big Poppa Pump like no one else has been able to......and any time Scotty manages to pull himself back into the match, Pillman is there to cut that off before it begins......in fact, Scott looks to be in deep, deep trouble..........





















....::::!!!!GONG!!!!::::....




.......until the lights go out.......









.........and the Undertaker makes his slow walk out onto the entrance way......he comes to a halt at the top of the aisle, staring a hole through his baby brother Kane......before slowly running a finger across his throat.....and then dropping down to one knee, inviting his brother to come and get him......

........much to the dismay of Michaels, Kane does exactly that......dropping to the floor and slowly stalking his way up the aisle-way towards the Deadman......so slowly in fact, that the official counts to ten before he even gets there......and this one is all over.

Winner: Scott Steiner (via Count Out)
Rating: A

As soon as Kane and The Undertaker come within arms reach of each other (much like last week) they begin hammering blows on to one another, battling their way backwards through the entrance way and deep into the building........unfortunately for Steiner, that still leaves Shawn Michaels and Brian a Pillman at ringside.....and both men storm the ring as one.......Steiner does his best to fight them off.....but these aren't two ham and eggers.....these are two of the best wrestlers alive today....(ok that's a bit of a stretch, but they are my number one and number three Franchise players, so it's maybe not that much of a stretch)......the two men eventually overcome the Intercontinental Champion.....before Pillman holds Scotty in place for a picture perfect Sweet Chin Music by the Champ......before Michaels mounts his Wrestlemania opponent, raining blow after blow on the helpless Steiner......

......HBK drops to the outside, where he picks up Steiner's Intercontinental Championship....he instructs Pillman to hold Big Poppa Pump in place, before grinding Scott's own Championship in his face.....telling him that he should have kept to his own level....because now Shawn's going to take this from him too......Shawn backs up and takes a firm grip on the Intercontinental Title, and it looks like he is about to take Steiner's head off with it..........



















....::::!!!!GLASS SHATTERS!!!!::::....






........when Stone Cold Steve Austin comes marching down to the ring.....the crowd absolutely erupts as Austin looks to make the save......but quite how he is going to do that when he can't lay so much as a finger on Brian Pillman is anyone's guess........and Michaels uses that to his advantage......putting himself and Steiner behind Pillman, who gives Austin a taste of his own medicine with the double bird.........

......that infuriates Stone Cold.....and it looks as though Austin is about to smack the taste out of Brian Pillman's mouth........at least until Vince McMahon picks up a microphone to announce that......


"..........I told you Austin......you lay so much as one finger on Brian Pillman before that bell rings to signal the start of your match at Wrestlemania, then that match is off........so right now......as far as you are concerned.....Brian Pillman is untouchable........"

......Pillman is being about as obnoxious as humanly possible here, shoving his chin towards Austin, begging.....begging his former partner to go ahead and take a swing......and Austin looks seriously tempted......but Vince hasn't finished......declaring that........

"........but while you can NOT lay one finger on Brian Pillman........I never said that Brian Pillman couldn't touch YOU........"

........and Pillman strikes.......beating the holy hell out of Stone Cold Steve Austin.......and with Scott Steiner down and seemingly out, The Heartbreak Kid soon joins Pillman.....and after taking care of Shawn Michaels Wrestlemania opponent, they now do the same to The Corporate Cannon's.......and since it's hard to stop a two on one beating when you can't even touch one of your attackers, it's not long before Steve Austin joins Scott Steiner......a battered and beaten stain on the mat........and as Shawn Michaels raises both the WWF and the Intercontinental Championship high in the air, Brian Pillman grabs a couple of beers from ringside.....mocking the fallen Austin as he and Michaels toast each other.......before pouring the amber liquid over their respective opponents, in one final humiliation, just six nights before the biggest event of the year........
