Week 4, February 1996
Madison Square Garden
ATT: 20,789
TV: 14.28


Quote:


The show opens up but before we have chance to be welcomed by our announce team the lights go out and the ominous music of The Undertaker fills the arena. Vince McMahon informs us that unlike Kevin Nash, The Undertaker actually heeded Gorilla Monsoons decree last week and stayed away from the arena, but he's back tonight. Jim Ross says he's back, but he's not alone.



The Undertaker is indeed not alone, as he is accompanied by his long standing manager Paul Bearer, clearly still the worse for wear following his brutal attack at the hands of Kevin Nash a few weeks back. He is dressed in his usual somber attire, but he is without the Urn as he is using both hands to support his neck which is equipped with a brace.

The two slowly get into the ring, with the Undertaker showing a rare sign of compassion as he holds the ropes open for his manager, before getting a mic. He tells the crowd that last week he played by the rules, Gorilla Monsoon asked him to take the night off under the assurance that Kevin Nash would not be here....so he took the night off and what happened? Kevin Nash took it upon himself to flaunt the orders of the WWF President and show up anyway....."Kevin Nash, you should have followed Monsoons advice, because now, the Deadman is here for your soul." Taker says that Nash made the biggest mistake of his life when he put his hands on Paul Bearer and he's going to pay the price......tonight.

Jim Ross and Vince McMahon question the Undertakers logic, picking a fight with Kevin Nash just 6 days before he's scheduled to step inside a Steel Cage with The Hitman for the WWF Title, but Lawler says that he hopes he sends that big dummy Diesel straight to hell, after Nash left him hanging a few weeks back.

Paul Bearer takes the mic and tells Gorilla Monsoon that "last week, my Undertaker honoured your wish.....this week you're going to honour his, because he wants Kevin Nash, one on one.



Monsoon comes out and reminds the Undertaker about his upcoming title match but says if that's what he wants, then that's what he will get....tonight, it's The Undertaker vs Kevin Nash.....and just so we can all get some answers as to the relationship between Nash and the reigning WWF Champion Bret Hart, the Hitman will be the special guest referee.

The first match of the evening pits the ever arrogant Hunter Hearst Helmsley facing off against The Dumpster, Duke Droese. Helmsley is accompanied as usual by the beautiful Sunny, but neither of them look particularly pleased to be in the same vicinity as the Garbage Man. Droese gets a few good shots in on Helmsley, but Hunter is clearly eager to get rid of the "smelly commoner" as quick as possible, as the stench of garbage is an insult to his delicate (if not larger than average) nasal passages. He finishes Duke off with a Pedigree for the decisive three count.

Winner: Hunter Hearst Helmsley

Hunter gets the mic and tells the officials to get that trash munching moron out of his ring because he's stinking up the place. Sunny says that now Helmsley has made quick work of The Dumpster, it's onwards and.....well, not upwards, because Phatu is nothing but a common street rat, but onwards to In Your House, where Hunter Hearst Helmsley will "make a difference" to his Title aspirations. Because when he's dispatched with Phatu, he's coming for Razor Ramon and the Intercontinental Championship.

It's our first in ring look at the two Texans who have been making life difficult for the Smoking Gunns, Barry Windham we know and Jim Ross informs us that his compadre goes by the name Justin Bradshaw. Their opponents are a young brother team called Matt and Jeff, The Hardy Boys. The two youngsters put on an impressive athletic display, but they are no match for the two burly Texans and it's not long before Bradshaw almost removes Matt's head from his shoulders with a huge lariat which gives his team the win.

Winner(s): The Texas Long Riders

Windham and Bradshaw are celebrating their victory, when in a role reversal of recent weeks, Billy and Bart Gunn come out of the crowd and start laying the boots to their adversary's. McMahon tells us that these two teams will be facing off at In Your House, but it looks like The Smoking Gunns couldn't wait. Before long we get a preview of what's to come in 6 days time, as the four men start brawling at ringside, until security and officials are finally able to separate the two teams. The Long Riders high tail it to the back as the Smoking Gunns recover their stolen Cowboy Hats from ringside.

It's time for the ongoing saga of Chris Jericho vs The Nation here, as after seeing his men fail to defeat the youngster in the last few weeks, the leader of the Nation, Faarooq has decided to take matters into his own hands. Jericho is riding high on a wave of momentum though, and he carries that into the opening minutes of this bout, hitting Faarooq with a flurry of fast and hard offence. As usual though it's not long until the rest of the Nation makes them self know, and Scorpio causes the distraction which gives his leader the upper hand. Jericho shows the crowd why they call him Lionheart though, weathering the beating that's delivered from his larger opponent, seemingly kicking out of everything Faarooq can hit him with. The youngster even manages to turn the tides back in his favour, at least until (with the referee distracted by Kama) Scorpio is able to nail him in the back of the head with a spin kick, the momentum of which staggers Jericho into Faarooqs waiting arms. Faarooq hoists his opponent onto his shoulder and delivers a reverse Powerslam, that he's dubbed "The Dominator", driving Jericho face down into the mat and out for the 1, 2, 3.

Winner: Faarooq
Rating: B-

The Nation have been trying to lay a gang style beat down on Jericho for weeks now, Lionheart has always been too quick for them however and always found away to escape. This week however, he's going nowhere and the Nation of Donination do exactly that, dominate the young man. Jericho is beaten and battered until he can barely move, before big Nelson Knight finally puts an exclamation mark on the beat down with a huge 500lb splash which crushes the life out of him. The five men stand over the fallen number one contender for the Light Heavyweight Championship, fists raised in a salute, as McMahon questions if he'll even be in any state to compete come In Your House.

As we come back from commercial we find the pairing of Razor Ramon and The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels already in the ring. No theatrics, no dancing, no pyro, it's all business this week. Michaels takes the mic and tells Kevin Nash that if he thinks for one second that a little chair shot is going to be enough to put him out, then he's as stupid as he is tall....and he's pretty god damn tall...."big man, in six days time, you've gotta get in this ring with your maker.....you've got to get in this ring with the man that put you where you are today.....you've got to get in this ring, with The Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels....this little reign of terror that you've got going on? It's all coming to an end, because if I have to get this big old boot of mine seven feet up in the air and knock a little bit of Sweet Chin Sense back into your thick skull, then that's exactly what I'm going to do."

He goes on to tell Nash that he's nothing more than a speed bump on his road to Wrestlemania, problem is that it seems like there's more bumps than flat at the minute on this road. He tells Goldust that he hasn't forgotten about what happened last week and that he's told Razor that after he's had his fun kicking the bizarre ones painted tail all over the place, to save just a little bit for old HBK, because they're going to tangle sometime soon.....and last but not least, the final bump in the road, Bret Hart. He tells the Hitman that he doesn't know what little deal him and Nash have worked out, but it won't be enough....and no matter how many chairs you swing at me, it won't be enough....and don't try and play it off as an accident, because both you know Bret, and I know, you saw Nash shove me in front of that chair shot....you could have stopped yourself....but you saw a chance to take me out and you took it. I know I can take that WWF Title from you....these fans know it....but more importantly, you know it, and you'll do anything in your power to keep me from making it to Wrestlemania. "But you know what, it ain't gonna work Jack, because nothing and no one, is going to stop the Heartbreak Kids boyhood dream, from becoming a reality.

Michaels hands the mic to Ramon, who basically cuts the same promo, he tells Goldust that he's going to take him out for good at In Your House, and ain't no police going to save you from an ass kicking this time. He then goes on to say that there's a lot of people lining up for a shot at the Bad Guy and his Intercontinental Championship....from Jeff Jarrett to Ahmed Johnson to Hunter Hearst Helmsley....well boys, you keep lining yourselves up and I'll keep knocking you all down, because Razor Ramon, he ain't lying down for nobody

VS.

After last weeks chaotic events WWF President Gorilla Monsoon decided to pit these six men against each other to try and limit the action this week to a sanctioned in ring variety, but while it WAS sanctioned, it was no less chaotic or physical, especially when you consider the heavy hitters in the ring. Ahmed, Scott and Rick all had power and strength in abundance and used every ounce of both to their advantage, bouncing Jarrett and Hart all over the ring. The Bulldog held his own in the power department, but it was the cunning and underhand tactics of Jeff and Owen that tipped this one in their favour, as Jarrett pulled down the top rope off an Owen Irish whip, sending Ahmed crashing to the floor.

From there the trio of Jarrett, Owen and The Bulldog used every dirty trick in their arsenal, often double and triple teaming Johnson, with Jarrett taking great pleasure in working the leg on the lead up to their match at In Your House. Eventually the Steiner's had seen enough and ended up rushing the ring as this one erupted into a wild brawl. The end came as Scott had Owen up on his shoulders. Rick had headed up to the top rope, looking for his bulldog, but THE Bulldog knocked his legs out from under him, crotching him on the turnbuckle. Scotty dropped Owen and went to check on his brother, which gave Jarrett and Davey Boy the chance to grab Hart and hightail it to the back, clearly deciding to live to fight another day.

Winner(s): Ahmed Johnson and The Steiner Brothers (via intentional count-out)

Dok Hendrix collars the WWF Champion Bret Hart just before he's due to go out and referee the main event. He asks him how he feels about being the referee. Bret says its not the first match he's officiated and maybe this will show everyone that there is no deal been made with Kevin Nash, because everyone is going to see him call this straight down the middle. Dok asks him about Shawn Michaels comments earlier, but Bret brushes it off, he says the chair shot last week was clearly an accident, but if Shawns got something to say then there's two things he can do...."that's say it to my face, or wait till Wrestlemania and do his talking in the ring. Now if you'll excuse me Dok, I've got a match to officiate."

Rating: B

Quote:


VS.

So here it is, the main event that the crowd has clearly been waiting for all night, because they are red hot. Bret comes out to officiate and gets somewhat of a mixed reaction, followed by Nash next and finally The Undertaker, accompanied for the first time in weeks by a clearly injured Paul Bearer. The Deadman cuts his usual lengthy walk to the ring short though, as he comes to a halt halfway down the aisle. He looks at Nash for a moment, before looking at Bearer and telling his manager to go to the back out of harms way. Nash finds this hilarious, shouting at the Deadman that the backs not safe, he was in the back when he had his last little "accident."

The match gets underway and the Hitman does indeed call it straight down the middle....in so far that he doesn't count out or disqualify either man when there was ample opportunity to do so. The King claims that Harts letting them beat the hell out of each other so that he has an easy ride in six days when he has to step inside a steel cage with the Deadman. McMahon says the King might be right, because both men could have been counted out ten times over and there have been numerous infractions of the rules. The two men continue to battle it out on the floor though and the Hitman continues to let it go, telling the time keeper that there needs to be a winner.

As the match nears a close Shawn Michaels makes his way down to ringside....not to interfere with the match however, he has clearly just heard the Hitman's pre-match comments. He gets up on the apron and starts yelling at Hart that "you want me to say it to your face? Bring your face over here Bretty Boy." Hart does indeed take his face over there, and the two get into a war of words. In the meantime Nash and The Undertaker have made it back into the ring. Big Daddy Cool clearly sees an opportunity, and whips the Deadman hard into the back of the Hitman, the force of which sends Hart crashing into Michaels and Michaels in turn crashing to the floor. Taker staggers back into the middle of the ring and with Bret momentarily distracted Nash drops to his knees and hits a hellacious low blow to the Deadman, before picking him up in the Jackknife Powerbomb and slamming him hard to the mat. Hart turns around in time to see Nash make the cover....3 seconds later and we have a winner.

Winner: Kevin Nash
Rating: B+

Quote:




With the victory in the bag Nash slaps Bret hard on the shoulder with a loud "thanks buddy" before climbing out over the top rope, stopping to tell Michaels "I'll see you on Sunday" and heading to the back. Michaels recovers his senses and dives into the ring to continue his war of words with the Hitman, shoving him for knocking him to the floor. The two continue to argue, push and shove until Michaels finally shoves Bret hard enough that he collides with an Undertaker just getting back to his feet. Quick as a flash the Deadman wraps his hand around the throat of the WWF Champion and choke slams him straight to hell. As the show comes to a close we fade to black to the sounds of Vince McMahon yelling at us to buy the Pay Per View.

Before I make my predictions, I just would like to say I really enjoy this style of commentary and am quite curious to know how you'd book '96 or what you'd do with Hall & Nash.


WWF Title - Steel Cage Match
Bret Hart vs The Undertaker

Bret wins, thanks to Kevin Nash shenanigans, and this could help lead to two matches at Mania.

Shawn Michaels vs Kevin Nash

Shawn needs to win this one, though it could be with Taker shenanigans or not.

WWF Intercontinental Title
Razor Ramon vs Goldust

The match we never got at the Rumble, even if Razor shows up pissed out of his mind, he still needs to win. I'd really suggest him losing at Mania if he's not coming back.

WWF Tag Team Titles
Owen Hart & The British Bulldog vs The Steiner Brothers

Call me a little biased, but I love Camp Cornette more than I do the Steiners... I'd prefer them to win.

Savio Vega vs The Ringmaster

Ringmaster needs to just dominate on PPV.

WWF Light Heavyweight Title
Scorpio vs Chris Jericho

Scorpio wins to set up a Mania match with Jericho winning.

Phatu vs Hunter Hearst Helmsley

Trips wins here but ultimately loses at Mania (hopefully not to Warrior though).

The Smoking Gunns vs Texas Long Riders

#1 Contenders Match for the WWF Intercontinental Championship
Ahmed Johnson vs Jeff Jarrett

As much as I dislike Jarrett, he's the right decision here.

Week 4 February, 1996
Foxboro Stadium (New England)
ATT: 51,752
Buy: 1.05


Quote:




After the usual opening video montage which runs down the events leading up to tonight, we head straight to the announce booth where Vince McMahon welcomes us to the show, thanking us for "letting the WWF In Your House tonight." Along with The King and Jim Ross he tells us that tonight, the WWF Title will be defended inside of a 15 feet high steel cage. The King says he can't wait, because after The Undertaker choke slammed Bret Hart straight to hell on Raw last Monday, tonight the Hitman will finally have that smug look wiped off his face...."or should I say ground off his face, because the Undertaker is going to grind Bret Harts face into those unforgiving steel bars so bad, even his own mother won't recognise him....although she's that senile McMahon, she probably wouldn't even recognise him right now hahahaha."

McMahon ignores the jibe, instead saying that on top of that, will we finally see the end of Kevin Nash's reign of terror, as he goes one on one with his now former friend, the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels....but before all that, we are going to decide a number one contender for the WWF Intercontinental Championship as Ahmed Johnson goes up against Jeff Jarrett.

#1 Contenders match for the Intercontinental Championship

VS.

One of these two men will walk out of In Your House with a guaranteed shot at the Intercontinental Championship. Ahmed Johnson is out first, to a good pop from the crowd. Despite the fact that he sounds like he has a mouthful of marbles when he speaks and struggles to string together a coherent sentence, the WWF fans have really taken a liking to Mr Johnson. Jarrett is next out (obviously) and he garners an altogether opposite reaction....I guess there aren't many Country Music fans in attendance tonight.

As far as the match itself, this one was pretty good. These two know each other pretty well by now and despite Ahmed's obvious limitations, Jarrett is a good enough worker to carry him to a decent contest. Ahmed starts off strong with a lot of power moves, which Jeff sells like a champ. Johnson is a (clumsy) house of fire, but his enthusiasm gets the better of him on the outside, as Jarrett is able to reverse an Irish Whip attempt, sending Ahmed crashing knees first into the steel steps.

Seeing the opening that he's been waiting for, Double J goes to work on the legs of the big man. The King has always been a big fan of Jarrett and points out the brilliance in this, because not only does it soften up those knees for when Jeff hooks in the figure four but it also negates Ahmed's big power move, the Pearl River Plunge. Jim Ross agrees, saying the big man is going to struggle to lift Jarrett on two bad wheels.

It's a good plan as well, because Ahmed tries to rally back on a number of occasions, but each time his legs betray him, either buckling under the weight of a big power move, or simply by Jarrett clipping him to regain the advantage. Double J looks to have this one in the bag along with a shot at the Intercontinental Champion, whomever that may be after tonight, but Johnson isn't going down without a fight, even when Jarrett finally locks in the Figure Four leg lock right in the middle of the ring. Ahmed's legs might be weakened, but he still had plenty of power in those thick arms and he is able to drag himself to the ropes, breaking up the hold.

Jarrett looks frustrated as to what it's going to take to keep the big man down....desperate times call for desperate measures and Double J goes to unfamiliar grounds, up on the top rope, looking for a dropkick to knock Ahmed silly. Jarrett leaps and flys, legs outstretched.....straight into the waiting arms of Johnson. Ahmed might not have the leg strength to pick Jeff up for the Pearl River Plunge, but with Jarrett sailing high, all the big man had to do was snatch him mid air and drive him into the mat with a sit down Powerbomb, giving him the victory AND a shot at the WWF Intercontinental Championship.

Winner: and NEW #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship....Ahmed Johnson
Rating: B-

Quote:




As Ahmed is limping his way back up the aisle, Dok Hendrix stops him to congratulate him on his victory. Johnson mumbles something about not congratulating him yet, you can congratulate him when he's wearing Intercontinental Gold around his waist....because with the support of all these great fans, whether it's Razor Ramon or Goldust, one way or another....they're going down.

VS.

Our second match of the night is our first tag team match of the night. There's a quick promo package, recapping the events that have led us up to here, events that mainly (with the exception of this last Monday night on Raw) consist of The Texas Long Riders beating the holy hell out of Billy and Bart. The two Texans come out first, followed by the Gunns (who get a decent reaction).

The former Tag Team Champions start strong in this one, there's no time for collar and elbow tie ups, as both Billy and Bart charge Windham and Bradshaw respectively, swinging rights and lefts that rock their opponents until both of the Long Riders are stunned and propped up against the ropes....duel dropkicks a few seconds later send The Texans flying over the top, crashing down onto the floor.

The Gunns follow them and dish out some more punishment on the floor, but it's not long before Windham and Bradshaw prove themselves the better brawlers, making the most of the outside environment, as Billy winds up getting his head bounced off the steel ring post and Bart is rudely introduced to the safety barrier.

Back inside the ring and we finally have a standard tag team bout, as the Long Riders cut the ring in half, isolating Bart near their corner and punishing him with frequent tags and high impact moves. Windham is clearly the captain of the team, shouting instructions to his younger protege, with Bradshaw clearly a keen learner. Eventually though it's the more inexperienced man that costs them the advantage. As he whips Bart into the neutral corner and charges hard, looking to splash the life out of his opponent, Gunn manages to move out of the way at the last second and Bradshaw hits noting but turnbuckle, knocking the wind out of himself and giving his opponent the opportunity to finally make the tag.

Billy gets into the match and unloads on both Windham and Bradshaw, clearly eager to prove that this cowboy isn't ready to be put out to pasture just yet. He holds his own against the Texans long enough for Bart to gather a second wind and before long we have all four men going at it again. Windham finds himself tackled to the outside by Bart, where Gunn whips him into the steel steps. He turns around just in time to see Bradshaw running at the ropes, ready to come off and take Billy's head off with a big Lariat. Showing his experience Bart quickly trips Bradshaw, who loses his footing for a second, before regaining his composure and turning his attention to the Smoking Gunn on the floor. Seeing the opportunity Billy quickly rolls the Texan up from behind and pins his shoulders to the mat for the 1, 2, 3.

Winner(s): The Smoking Gunns
Rating: C+

Quote:




The Gunns pick up the victory, using their tag team experience over the youngster Bradshaw. Jim Ross calls it great teamwork, where as The King says it was blatant cheating and Billy and Bart should be ashamed of themselves. Whatever it was the Gunns don't get to celebrate for long, as Windham is back inside the squared circle....and he's bought a bull rope in with him that was stashed under the ring.

He nails Bart in the back of the head with the metal cowbell, just as Bradshaw turns Billy inside out with a Lariat. They drag Bart to the side of the ring, hook the bull rope around his neck.....and toss the former tag team champion over the top rope, choking the life out of him. Bradshaw cranks back on the makeshift noose, while Windham stomps on Billy until security and officials finally break up the assault and the Texas Long Riders head to the back, shouting at the Gunns that "this ain't over boys."

After that vicious display of aggression it's time to introduce a little bit of class into the Pay Per View....no not Dok Hendrix, I'm talking about his guest for this interview, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, decked out in an elegant looking long coat and walking cane, accompanied as always by the beautiful Sunny.

Phatu's music can be heard playing in the background as a cut scene shows the big man making his way to the ring for his match against Helmsley. Dok asks Hunter about his chances for this upcoming bout, which causes Helmsley to glance at him with a look of distain. He tells Hendrix that if he goes back and checks the record books he'll see that Hunter Hearst Helmsley has an impeccable undefeated record here in the WWF and a dirty little street rat like Phatu won't be able to do anything to sully that. Sunny pipes in that after tonight is over and done with, her client will be moving on to bigger, better.....and far better smelling things than Phatu. Because this man right here is going to be your next undefeated, undisputed, WWF Intercontinental Champion.

It's the privileged man vs the common man here....and while Phatu might not be a polka dot wearing, son of a plumber, he does have the size advantage thanks to his ample waist size (they grow those island boys big.) Helmsley is obviously proud of his strength and tries to Irish whip Phatu, who roots himself to the spot and doesn't move. When that doesn't work Hunter gets some momentum from rebounding off the ropes and charges Phatu with a shoulder barge. Phatu however is the proverbial immovable object and Helmsley finds himself bouncing off the big man and winds up flat on his back on the mat. A few more power moves by Hunter are thwarted and Phatu looks like he's having fun in there....he has less fun however after he backs Helmsley into the corner and is on the receiving end of a thumb to the eye while the referee is trying to separate them.

Finally finding the advantage he was looking for, Hunter manages to get the big man to the mat with a Ric Flair-esque chop block to the knee, which he follows up with a big knee drop to the skull of his opponent. Obviously realising that lying flat on his back negates Phatu's size and weight advantage, Helmsley does everything in his power to keep the man down. He focuses a lot of his attack on the head of Phatu, which the King points out is smart because these Samoans have notoriously thick skulls, so working the head will now will mean the pedigree has more impact later. Having sufficiently weakened the big man, Helmsley whips him hard into the corner, where he follows up with the classic mounted 10 punch combo. He kicks Phatu in his ample gut and hooks his arms for the Pedigree.....its too soon though....and too close to the ropes, as Phatu is able to backdrop Helmsley up and over the top to the floor.

Hunter just makes it back in the ring at the count of 9 and charges at Phatu....but gets planted on his back with a big savate kick to the jaw. With the advantage back with Phatu, he goes to work on Helmsley and hits him with a big belly to belly and a seated senton splash for the two count. Helmsley looks to be in big trouble, but there's a reason that the Connecticut Blue Blood is undefeated here in the WWF...and part of that reason recently has been Sunny....because as Phatu goes up top to deliver a big splash that would have undoubtedly won him the match, Sunny surreptitiously slides Hunters walking cane into the ring, before hopping onto the apron, which distracts both the referee and Phatu alike. With the referees back turned and with his opponents focus on his manager, Helmsley grabs the cane from the corner of the ring and charges Phatu, driving the point of the cane into the throat of the big man. Phatu crashes to the mat, clutching at his windpipe. One Pedigree later we have a winner and more importantly, we still have an undefeated Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

Winner: Hunter Hearst Helmsley

It's time for our first title match of the evening....or is it? Because after the Nation left Young Chris Jericho laying just 6 days ago, there is serious doubt that the Challenger will even be here tonight. Scorpio obviously don't think so, because the Champion comes out first for this one (don't you just hate that) flanked by the other members of the Nation. The five men stand tall in the centre of the ring, before raising their fist in the salute of the Nation. Faarooq picks up a microphone and tells the crowd that "if you were expecting to see a WWF Light Heavyweight Title match tonight, then you're all even stupider than you look. On Monday night, the Nation of Domination took Chris Jericho and we squashed him like a bug under our heel." He goes on to tell the referee to go ahead and ring the bell.....count to ten....and declare Scorpio the winner of this match by forfeit for failure to compete.

The referee seems reluctant to do so but once the five men surround him and back him into the corner, he appears to change his mind and is just about to signal for the bell, when Chris Jericho's theme music starts to play and the challenger himself makes his way from the back. Walking slowly and with a slight limp, Jericho has his ribs heavily taped (after being on the receiving end of a huge splash from Nelson Knight) and is clearly favouring them, but he's here and he looks ready to compete regardless of his condition. At the sound of his music a look of disbelief washed over Scorpio, but that morphed into a huge grin when he saw how gingerly Jericho was walking.

The Challenger climbs slowly into the ring and tells the referee to ring the bell. The official spends about a minute trying to talk Jericho out of competing in his current condition, but Jericho is adamant that he wants to compete....so the referee does the only other thing he can think of....he ejects the rest of the Nation members from ringside. Faarooq looks like he's going to have a problem with the officials decision, but Scorpio calms him down and tells him to go to the back, motioning to his opponent and telling the leader of the Nation not to worry "this won't take long, look at the chump" as they leave.

The Nation head to the back and the referee rings the bell. Jericho comes in for the collar and elbow tie up, Scorpio however fakes the lock up and kicks Jericho square into his unprotected ribs while his hands were raised. There's no babyface shine to start this one, as its all Scorpio from there on in. Instead of his usual more high flying offence, Scorpio focuses all his attention on the injured midriff of the Challenger. Hard whips into the turnbuckles, reverse back breakers, side suplexes and high back drops....its all high impact and its all seriously hurting Jericho. Scorpio tosses his opponent to the floor and lands a springboard splash, not giving Jericho a second to breath as he picks him up and drops him rib first onto the steel safety rail.

Rolling Jericho back into the ring, he picks him up for a suplex, but instead of dropping him back he drops him forward, doubling him up over the top rope. Jericho slowly pulls himself to his feet with help from the ropes, but he gets caught with a superkick by Scorpio, which is followed up with a top rope leg drop and the cover. Showing why his nickname is Lionheart though, Jericho manages to get the shoulder up at 2. Scorpio looks annoyed but only for a second before the cocky look comes back on his face. He picks Jericho up, only to slam him back down to the mat hard near the corner. He shouts to the crowd that its all over and gives the signal for the 450 splash before heading up top. Standing confidently on the top turnbuckle, he raises his fist and shouts "by any means necessary" before sailing through the air in a 450 degree rotation.....and landing flat on his face on the empty mat....Jericho moved out of the way!!!

Having avoided unquestionable defeat at the last minute, Lionheart tries to rally a comeback, but it's a comeback that mainly consists of right and left hands, after a backdrop attempt left the Challenger clutching at his rib cage. Rights and lefts are enough to rock the Champion though and leave him frustrated enough to make mistakes as Jericho is able to somehow counter a dropkick attempt into a powerbomb, but he's in too much pain to make the cover. He pulls himself to his feet using the turnbuckles just as Scorpio charges and leaps for a splash attempt, but Jericho moves and the Champion collides with the corner pads, giving Lionheart the opportunity to roll him up for the near fall. Back to their feet Scorpio whips the Challenger into the ropes but Jericho ducks a clothesline attempt and surprises Scorpio with a one handed bulldog. Seeing his opportunity and with his opponent down on the mat, Jericho comes off the ropes with a Lionsault, the same move that finished off Bobby Knight.....but it was a move too far as Scorpio gets his knees up, destroying Jericho's ribs even more. The Champion heads to the top and crushes his opponent with a picture perfect 450 Splash which is too much for Jericho's injured ribs to take, this one is over.

Winner: and STILL WWF Light Heavyweight Champion, Scorpio

After that impressive display of heart by Chris Jericho, we head to the back where Dok Hendrix is standing by with comments from the Million Dollar Corporation. Ted DiBiase speaks first, telling Savio Vega that the time for talking has come to an end, it's time for somebody to put their money where their mouth is....."and nobody has more money than the Million Dollar Man" before finishing off with his signature laugh. The Ringmaster is next, he tells Savio that while he shouldn't have turned down DiBiases offer to join the corporation in the first place, tonight The Ringmaster is going to show his benefactor exactly why Savio would have been a bad investment....because this stone cold killer, is going to put an end to you once and for all.

The Ringmaster is out first for this one, accompanied by his manager but without any other members of the Corporation lurking around which makes a change. Savio is out next (obviously) and he's clearly in a hurry to finally get his hands on the Ringmaster, because he's shrugging his waist coat off half way down the aisle and charges the rest of the way, sliding quickly into the ring. The Ringmaster is just as eager to prove his worth to DiBiase and meets his opponent head on. This is an out and out brawl, which is something different than we have seen from the Ringmaster since his debut, (who has been more of a mat based technical wrestler) but he more than holds his own against the man from Puerto Rico. Before long the two men are rolling around on the mat, trading stuff looking blows, eventually tumbling to the outside where they continue to inflict punishment on each other.

They make it back inside the ring before the referee counts them both out, but continue to rain blows on each other, until the official finally try's to separate them as they are locked in the corner. The Ringmaster shows why DiBiase thinks so highly of him though, because while the referee is between them, he plants a kick hard down low, which leaves Savio writhing on the mat. DiBiase barks advice from ringside, telling his client to "slow the match down....make him wrestle your kind of match." To which he replies, "I'm the damn Ringmaster.....every kind of match is my kind of match."

Savio is still down on the mat and is on the receiving end of a number of brutal knee drops to the back of the neck, followed up with a big double elbow drop from the middle rope. The Ringmaster continues to punish Vega, focusing mainly on the neck, which is in theory to set up for the Million Dollar Dream. Savio attempts to fight back, and stings The Ringmaster with some stiff chops, backing him into the ropes, his assault is cut short though as his opponent manages to lift Vega up, dropping him throat first on the top rope with a Stun Gun, again focusing on the neck area. Pinfall attempt but Savio is able to get the shoulder up at 2. This is followed up with a Million Dollar Dream attempt, but Vega blocks it and nails the Ringmaster with a Jawbreaker.

Savio finally fights back with the crowd rallying behind him and again chops his opponent back into the ropes, this time managing to Irish Whip him across the ring and connecting with a spinning heel kick for a near fall. He slams The Ringmaster hard to the mats and runs the ropes looking for a running knee drop, but DiBiase reaches in and trips him from the outside. Vega regains his footing and turns his back to his opponent to yell at DiBiase, but that was his final mistake of the evening as he left himself wide open for The Million Dollar Dream to be applied from behind. Savio tries his hardest to fight out of the hold, but it's not too long before he's unconscious and the official puts a stop to the match.

Winner: The Ringmaster

The match is over but The Ringmaster isn't letting go of the hold, DiBiase wants him to punish Vega some more for daring to turn down The Million Dollar Man. Ted even gets some blows in for good measure, stomping and kicking Savio while he's helpless. A slew of officials storm the ring and finally the Million Dollar Duo stop the assault and head back up the aisle. They stop half way to celebrate, but it's a short lived celebration as out of nowhere a hooded fan at ringside unloads an entire cup of stone cold soda in the face of The Ringmaster. Obviously irate the soaked superstar tries to get to the fan, but security is already hauling them away as we head quickly to a video segment.

The screen fades to back and there is nothing but silence for a moment until slowly a faint squealing sound can be quietly heard. Video flickers to life and we are treated to images of all the atrocities of the world....war, violence, homelessness, crime, all the while the faint squeal remains in the background as a tortured voice begins to speak.

"There is no good on earth, and sin is but a name.....that name is temptation and the only way to rid yourself of temptation is to yield to it....but then there's the guilt....mommy always said to be a good boy....but we weren't....she told us that sin and guilt is its own punishment, eating away at us from the inside....that's why she had to discipline us....because we never felt the guilt....we enjoyed the sin and when we love our sin, then we are indeed damned.....its too late for me...."

The images on the screen fade and blend into the image of a masked man sat cross legged in some dark and dingy cellar, rocking back and forth while petting a rat.

".....and if it's too late for me, then it's too late for you, because if I'm truly damned then I'm taking everyone down with me.....I'm coming to the WWF to make all your heroes fall....to make all your heroes suffer....."

The camera zooms in and we are treated to a close up of a face encased in a leather mask.



"......to make all your heroes pay....for the sins of all Mankind....have a nice day."

With that the masked figure starts to squeal loudly, before maniacally staring to pull out his own stringy brown hair by the roots as the video fades to black.

The Tag Team Titles are on the line here, as the Champions Owen Hart and The British Bulldog face of against the brother tandem of Rick and Scott Steiner. The Brothers have looked strong against the Brothers-In-Law, but Owen and Davey have found a way to outsmart their opponents every step of the way so far. The Challengers are out first to a thunderous ovation, the fans are really getting behind this team, followed by the Champions.

Owen and Rick start the match and it's a surprisingly technical opening. Owen thought he could out wrestle Steiner, who usually focuses on more power based moves, but Rick reminds us that he was quite the prolific amateur wrestler back in Michigan State University, leaving Hart on the mat with a number of takedowns. Owen charges Rick but Steiner is able to reverse it, gets behind his man and tosses Hart halfway across the ring with a release German Suplex. The Bulldog hops into the ring, trying to catch Rick unaware but he runs straight into Scott, who in turn tosses him halfway across the ring, this time with an over head belly to belly. The Champions bail to the floor to regroup while Rick runs around the ring barking, before dropping to his hands and knees as Scott stands over him in the signature Steiner pose.

The match gets going again and the Bulldog is in there, keen to put is power to good use....unfortunately he's in the ring with Scott Steiner. Davey tries to knock Scott down with a shoulder barge but Steiner doesn't budge and the Bulldog winds up on his ass. A second and third attempt wield the same result and the fourth time round Scott catches Smith with a big powerslam for the near fall. Clearly at a loss for what to do to gain the advantage, the champs do what they do best.....cheat. Bulldog Irish whips Scott into the ropes, where he is met to a knee to the kidneys by Owen, followed by a big clothesline to the back of the neck by the Bulldog after Steiner turns and swings at Hart.

Finally in control of the match the Champions grind down Scott with a mix of power and speed. Owen even hits an impressive belly to belly suplex of his own which he celebrates by climbing onto the second turnbuckle and providing the crowd with an obnoxious "woooooooo." In an impressive display of his own, the Bulldog shows off his strength, gorilla pressing Steiner, as well as holding him up for a long delayed suplex. The two men double team the challenger in their corner, with the illegal man often assaulting Scott while his counterpart has the referees attention. This goes on for some time until Scott is finally able to make the hot tag (and it was a hot tag, the crowd were eating the match up) to his brother Rick, who storms into the ring like a madman. Gone is his earlier technical display, he's back to pure smash mouth power.

He clears the ring momentarily until his brother is able to get back in the fight and it's not long until the Steiner Brothers have this one firmly in hand. Owen gets a stiff Steinerline over the top rope and Scott lifts The Bulldog up on his shoulders. Rick climbs to the top rope and Davey Boy gets driven head first into the canvas with a big bulldog on the Bulldog. This one is over, Scott makes the cover and the Referee makes the count, one.....two....thr......no! Owen Hart is back in the ring and he has nailed Scott in the back of the head with one of the Tag Team Titles right in front of the official, who has little choice but to call for the bell and disqualify Hart and Smith.

Rick checks with his brother as Owen drags Davey to the outside. The Champions grab their gold belts and beat a hasty retreat up the aisle and to the back.

Winner(s): The Steiner Brothers (via Disqualification).......however, a title can not change hands as the result of either count out or disqualification, therefore STILL WWF Tag Team Champions....Owen Hart and The British Bulldog

Following that we go to the back, where Mr. Perfect is standing by with comments from Razor Ramon. Perfect tells Razor that he knows a thing or two about holding Intercontinental Gold, seeing how he was a Perfect Intercontinental Champion, then a Perfect Executive Consultant....he's been a Perfect Colour Commentator and soon he'll be the Perfect manager, once he finds a client who is close enough to his standard. In the mean time he's going to be the Perfect Interviewer around here. Razor says nobody is Perfect Chico, not even the Bad Guy....but what will be perfect, will be when Razor Ramon walks that aisle....and finally slaps the paint off that overgrown freak Goldust.

Ramon goes to walk off as his music starts to play in the arena, but he's stopped by Jeff Jarrett. Jarrett says Ahmed Johnson's win tonight was a fluke and if Ramon has any guts, he'll put the IC strap on the line tomorrow night, against him, Jeff Jarrett.....that's J-E-Double F J-A-Double R-E-Double T. Razor tells Jarrett that he's got a match right now, but Ahmed won that fight fair and square, and it'll be an honour to face him for this belt.....as for you? No shot for you Chico.....you're nothing but a loser man....now if you don't mind, the Bad Guy's gotta go do what he does best and that's beat people up.

It's finally time for Goldust to get the title match that was supposed to happen at the Royal Rumble. It's now four weeks later and if Razor wasn't ready to rip Goldust apart then, he certainly is now, especially after the sneak attack a few weeks back. Goldust comes out first, accompanied as always by the beautiful Marlena who positions herself at ringside after an usher brings down her directors chair. The Intercontinental Champion is out next, clad out in the cool yellow trunks that he never wore often enough for my liking. He hits his signature pose in the middle of the ring and a shower of pyro rains down on him.

The official rings the bell to get this one underway, Goldust slowly rubs is hands up and down his own body before blowing a kiss at Ramon......that didn't go down well.....Razor snapped, (sick and tired of the games and innuendos that have been a staple of Goldust's strategy so far) and charges at the Challenger, tackling him to the mat and beating the holy hell out of him. Right hand after right, left fist after left, Ramon beats on Goldust until the official finally drags him off, his knuckles covered in gold paint. He picks his opponent up of the mat and tosses him to the outside to punish him some more. He bounces Goldust's head off the steel ring post, the steel steps and finally the announce table. Goldust looks to be in serious trouble, but is able to move (fall?) out of the way of a charging Ramon, who crashes into the steel ring post himself.

Goldust rolls his man back into the ring and starts his offence....it's a strange mix of brawling and flirting, but it's working for him, he's one of the hottest heels in the business right now, the crowds despise him and they let him know it tonight as they cheer on the Bad Guy. Ramon does rally back on a number of occasions, (usually fired up because Goldust has done something disturbing like caressed his chest), but it never lasts long, Ramon's temper causes him to make mistakes that the challenger capitalises on. The King says that he doesn't know what Goldust's deal is, but if this is all a ploy to get Ramon's head out of the game, then it's working wonders at the minute.

Unfortunately for Goldust, it doesn't work forever and Razor is able to get back on the offence, after reversing a bulldog attempt by simply tossing Goldie across the ring. A cross body attempt is reversed into a "sack of s##t" as Ramon liked to call it for the near fall. Razor even hits his opponent with a "choke slam type manoeuvre" expertly called as much by Vince McMahon. The Bad Guy slaps his hands together in a "he's done" motion, before signalling for the Razors Edge. He hooks Goldust in position, but before he can hit it Marlena is up on the apron, almost as if she was trying to get the referees attention.......it worked too....because with the official distracted by Goldust's Director and VP at Shattered Dreams Productions.....he totally missed Jeff Jarrett running down the aisle, guitar in hand. He slides into the ring behind Razor and blasts him over the back of the head with the acoustic equaliser.....I'm not sure how the referee didn't hear that, but he didn't.....apparently he didn't see all the debris over the mat either. What he did see, was Goldust nailing Razor with a reverse DDT and making the cover.....three seconds later and we have a winner, as Jarrett retreats up the aisle yelling into a camera "who's a loser now boy?"

Winner: ....and NEW WWF Intercontinental Champion....Goldust

Before the next bout we are treated to some pre recorded comments from both competitors taped earlier in the day. Shawn says that tonight he's going to do exactly what he said he would do and that's put an end to Nash's one man crusade....then it's in to Wrestlemania, to fulfil that boyhood dream. Nash says that there won't be any dream fulfilled, because after tonight, Shawn won't make it to Wrestlemania.....hell, he might not make it to the end of the show.

Back in the arena and Kevin Nash's music starts to play, as the man who's been meddling in everybody's business recently makes his way to the ring. He stands in the centre of the mat with his fist raised as pyro explodes around him. The opening bars of HBK's music blasts to life and Nash positions into a fighting pose, yelling at Michaels to "get your pansy ass down to this ring so I can kick it." The crowd gets out of their seat in anticipation for this one, but Michaels makes them wait.....and wait......and wait.....wait, what's going on?

The music stops playing and the fans in the arena aren't happy. The King on commentary says that Michaels is clearly shaking in his boots behind a locked door, too scared to face Kevin Nash. Vince McMahon says that Shawn Michaels has never been scared of a fight. Nash is pacing the ring like a caged animal, when the music starts to play again.....again no Shawn Michaels to be seen. The big screen on the entrance ramp suddenly shows live footage from the back, where we see the clearly unconscious and prone body of The Heartbreak Kid, laid out in a hallway, the remnants of a shattered table scattered all around him. In the ring Kevin Nash has a look of mock surprise on his face, before bursting out laughing and demanding a microphone from ringside. As the big screen shows medical staff and company officials tending to Shawn Michaels, Nash tells the crowd that it "looks like the Heartbreak Kid done broke his neck." Big Sexy says he warned Shawn what would happen, he told him that he wouldn't be going to Wrestlemania.....the only place he's going, is to the hospital.

And it looks like he's right, because they have finally loaded Michaels carefully on a stretch and are wheeling him to a waiting ambulance as we speak. Nash tells the crowd that his work here is done, looks like they won't be seeing Big Daddy Cool in action tonight, so he's going to go to the back and watch the WWF Title match. He drops the mic and goes to exit the ring but is interrupted by some lesser known music....



......its Aldo Montoya....he stops at the entrance with a microphone. He tells Nash that someone needs to teach him a lesson, that you can't just go around putting people through tables.....so tonight, he's gonna kick his ass. Nash tells Aldo that he must be stupid....."you look like crap (he does look rather unkempt, he hasn't shaved in a while by the look of the hair on the only visible parts of his face) and last time I saw you I nearly ended your career.....you wanna fight? That's fine by me, come down here so I can finish the job."

After that chaotic scene it's time for the main event of the evening. The viewers at home are treated to a video recap of the events leading up to this match, while the crowd in attendance get to watch the thrilling action of lots of workers, rushing to assemble the big blue steel cage. With all that out of the way it's time for the entrances. The Deadman is out first, with Paul Bearer by his side. Bearer is still clearly banged up, but he's well enough to at least carry the Urn with him today. The Champion is next out, to a somewhat mixed response. As the two competitors ready themselves for battle, Vince McMahon informs us that Shawn Michaels has arrived at a local medical facility and we will have more information on his condition tomorrow night on Raw.....The King says that they had better make that a double room, because Aldo Montoya will be needing a bed too.

The bell rings and this one is under way. The rules are pretty simple here, because there's only one.....escape the cage and you're the WWF Champion. Bret instantly goes for the legs of the Challenger, trying to take the Deadman to the mat, but the Undertaker is having none of it, hammering the Hitman with stiff clubbing blows to his lower back. It's your basic big man vs little man strategy, as Bret tries to ground his opponent, while the Undertaker relays on his power to punish the Champion. After levelling the Hitman with a big boot, Bret is first to taste the steel, as The Undertaker picks him up from the mat and slams his head hard against the solid bars. Hart shakes off the cobwebs and manages to rock the Challenger with some stiff looking fists, before trying with an Irish whip attempt. The Undertaker however reverses that, and Bret hits the turnbuckles hard, sternum first as only Bret Hart can.

Running out of options Bret finally manages to gain the upper hand with a stiff kick to Takers leg, followed by a knee breaker a-la Ric Flair. With the Deadman finally down Hart works on the knee with kicks and stomps, before wrapping the leg around the bottom rope for leverage and wrenching back on it. Bret climbs the cage in the first escape attempt of the night, but Taker still has plenty in the tank and is able to yank the Hitman down from the wall and to the mat. Bret goes back to the knee and The King says that's how stupid The Hitman is, because there's no submissions in this. Jim Ross remarks that there might be no submission, but it the Undertaker can't walk, he certainly can't climb.

There's no real sustained periods of dominance for either men in this one though, because for all Brets focus on the knee of the Deadman, The Undertaker still had plenty of offence in this back and forth battle for the belt. Bret makes it halfway up the cage, The Undertaker pulls him down, The Deadman climbs the cage and The Hitman pulls him down. Hart charges his opponent but The Undertaker is able to use his own momentum against him and The Hitman slams face first into the unforgiving steel, busting himself wide open. Taker picks up the Champion and drives him hard into the mat with a chokeslam, before climbing the cage. With his face the proverbial crimson mask however The Hitman is able to drag himself up after him, delivering a brutal superplex from the top of the cage.

Both men are down for far more than the usual 10 count, but that doesn't matter in this one. Finally the pair are able to pull themselves to their feet and start slugging it out. Blood is flying from the head of the Hitman with each blow and the Champion is fading, so much so that The Undertaker is able to hit another Choke Slam, before running a thumb across his throat signalling for the end. He picks up Hart, positions him, and drives his bleeding head into the mat with a hellacious Tombstone. If pin falls counted in this one we would have a new champion right there. They don't count though, so the Undertaker makes the slow accent up the side of the steel cage and just about makes it to the top, when a familiar face makes his way down the aisle.....



......Kevin Nash.....shouting insults to The Deadman all the way. The two engage in a war of words which finishes with Nash shouting, "you might think you're safe in that cage, but your fat manager is out here with me." Nash grabs Paul Bearer by the throat and the Undertaker starts to climb over the top, but Big Sexy puts a stop to that, telling him "one more step and I'll snap his chubby little neck like a twig."

The camera pans out to a wide shot and we see Bret Hart on the opposite side of the ring, crawling through the open cage door. The Undertaker notices it about the same time as we do, but it's too late, the Hitman drags himself through the opening and collapses on the floor outside.....this one is over.

Winner: .....and STILL WWF World Champion.....Bret Hart.
Rating: A

Bret is handed his title and his music starts to play, he hasn't even noticed the 7 foot frame of Kevin Nash, who has released Paul Bearer from his grip, but stands, middle finger raise, staring at a furious looking Undertaker who is still perched atop the cage as the Pay Per View comes to an end.

All in all I was really pleased with the way In Your House went down, there was a lot of positive feedback from the dirtsheets, but more importantly the boys were pleased with the show too. There were a few pleasant surprises for me match wise.....Hunter and Phatu had a great match, their chemistry in the ring was off the chart, everything they did clicked. This was only ever supposed to be a throwaway storyline to introduce Sunny as Helmsleys new manager, but if they could rekindle that same chemistry at Wrestlemania then this one may have to continue. The second surprise was the fact that much like Hunter and Phatu, The Ringmaster and Savio just clicked together in their match. I really need to move Austin away from the Ringmaster gimmick though, it's awful....his "stone cold killer" line at the Pay Per View made me sit up and take notice....and as good as his and Savio's match was, there won't be a rematch at Mania, I've got something bigger lined up for Steve.

The biggest surprise for me though was the amount of chemistry between Kevin Nash and Aldo Montoya, even in a throwaway match these two just gelled in the ring.....although the fact that Nash is currently white hot can't have hurt matters either.

I've also offered a contract to one of the competition, we are a little bit light on babyfaces in the midcard....credible babyfaces anyway, so I'm hoping some fresh faces will shake things up.

Speaking of contracts, both Nash and Razors contracts are up as of now.....I've offered them both new deals, both far more money than I would have liked.....especially Nash who wanted both creative control and hiring veto clauses added.....there was no way I was giving him either of those, the pr##k has enough sway around here as it is. Unfortunately not including the clauses meant I had to offer a higher amount. WCW haven't approached either man yet as far as I know, but part of me wonders if keeping them around is worth the hassle they bring.....we'll see.....either way we are 4 weeks away from Wrestlemania.....4 weeks away from MY Wrestlemania, with tonight's Raw being the first step.

On a side note, thanks to everyone that made their predictions, I know the Shawn/Nash match was a spot of false advertising but hey.....there is always a reason lol

I love what your doing with Nash and I can't be the only one wanting him to hold the strap again.

What a great PPV and a few of the results surprised me in the end. I may be wrong but it seems like you're building towards a fatal 4 way in the main event of Wrestlemania which would be great but if it's Taker vs Kevin Nash and Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels then that could be just as good.
