Week 2, December 1997
Rose Garden (Portland, Oregon)
ATT: 12,790
TV: 37.52


Quote:




It's Monday Night, Raw is War, and that "Gong!" can mean only one thing....World Wrestling Federation Champion The Undertaker, is about to make his way out.....

.....the lights dim as The Deadman walks the aisle with a billow of smoke at his feet, before climbing into the ring where he raises the light AND raises a microphone.....

.....he says that he's walked a bleak walk on a lonely road his entire adult life, with the darkness in his heart as his only constant companion.....but it wasn't always like that.....he says that as a child there was always someone by his side, someone that he thought would ALWAYS be by his side.....his baby brother, Kane.....but all of that went up in smoke.....literally.....

.....Undertaker says that on one fateful night he lost everything.....or at least he THOUGHT he lost everything.....until the day a little over eighteen months ago, when Kane walked back into his life.....

.....Kane has always been "troubled" he tells us....he's always had his demons....and it's because of his own brother, that his parents are dead....Kane killed their parents....Kane killed The Undertakers childhood....Kane created the Deadman some twenty years ago....

.....BUT.....

.....it wasn't intentional.....

.....he says that Kane was young, he was reckless.....he needed guidance.....he needed.....he needed his big brother.....but the Undertaker was preoccupied with his own life to worry about his baby brother.....he says that Kane DID kill their parents, but The Undertaker was as much to blame as if he had ignited that flame himself.....

.....he says that when Kane re-emerged all these years later, he bought with him decades worth of pain that the Undertaker had buried.....pain that the Deadman simply did NOT want to deal with.....what he wanted to do, was hurt Kane.....punish Kane.....destroy the baby brother that destroyed HIS life.....but he sees now, that Kane was already destroyed.....

".....my baby brother died in that fire, while Kane rose like a phoenix from the ashes.....I can't destroy you, because you already destroyed yourself....."

.....The Undertaker says he's done.....it's done.....he can't get those twenty years back.....he can't get his parents back.....he can't get his childhood back.....

".....but I want my baby brother back....."

.....Taker says that no more will he raise his hand to Kane, no more will he stand back and watch as Vince McMahon and his Stooges manipulate Kane's fractured mind.....at In Your House: Dead Man Walking, Brian Pillman will Rest in Peace, The Undertaker will STILL be the World Wrestling Federation Champion......and The Undertakers olive branch to his brother will STILL be extended......










.....that brings out Mr. McMahon, who has Brian Pillman and (judging by general body language) a reluctant Kane.....

.....McMahon says that while the World Wrestling Federation certainly embodies good old fashioned family values (pftt, yeah right) unfortunately there will be NO family reunion for the Deadman and Kane.....Vince says that whether The Undertaker likes it, or whether he doesn't, it doesn't matter.....all that matters, is that Kane does WHAT Mr. McMahon says, WHEN Mr. McMahon says to do it, and if the Deadman is going to stand by his promise NOT to raise his hand to his brother, then getting the WWF Title around the Corporate Cannon's waist will be as simple as one, two, three.....

.....Brian Pillman takes the microphone to cackle like a maniac, telling the Undertaker that he may think himself to be the darkness of the WWF.....he may believe himself to be some mythical being....some phenom.....but in reality he is little more than a lost little boy crying out for his Dear Dead Mama...and as far as Brian Pillman is concerned, if The Undertakers Mother wasn't already dead, she would have died of shame.....but since she IS dead, she's probably just rolling in her grave at the worthless offspring she spawned.....

.....even Kane snaps his head around with that comment.....he's clearly not liking hearing his mother mocked, but Brian Pillman either doesn't notice or (more likely) doesn't care, as he continues to taunt the WWF Champion, before Vince McMahon finally brings the segment to a close.....he tells The Undertaker that since he's so keen on "brotherhood's" all of a sudden, he can face a brother team.....when he and Steve Austin join forces again in our main event.....against The Hart Foundation.....and maybe Kane will be there, to snap that olive branch in two.

VS.

Our first match of the evening sees a man who's near enough done it all here in the World Wrestling Federation (two time Intercontinental Champion, former European Champion, former Tag Team Champion) other than win the Big One, The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith, facing off against a member of Ted DiBiase's (recently rejuvenated) Million Dollar Corporation, Rich Steiner.....

.....these two men have certainly met before, in fact it was from The British Bulldog that Rich Steiner captured his first (and only) singles Title here in the World Wrestling Federation , the Intercontinental Championship, back at the tail end of October 1996.....although NEITHER man has seen much Championship action as of late.....

.....obviously with both men looking to get back into the title picture, they would need to start with a victory here, and despite the presence of Ted DiBiase at ringside, it was the Bulldog who was hungrier tonight, taking the victory after planting Rich with the Running Powerslam.

Winner: The British Bulldog
Rating: B

Quote:




Michael Cole joins the Bulldog in the ring as he celebrates his victory, and he has a microphone in hand....he tells the Bulldog that he's been conspicuously absent in recent months, while his former Hart Foundation members have been front and centre week in and week out....is this a return to the spotlight for the British Bulldog?.....

".....yes, I think it is Michael....it is yes....."

.....Bulldog was never a wizard on the microphone.....he gets the gist across though, he's done being the lost puppy of the WWF, and it's time he got back to doing what he does best....taking a bite out of the competition.....and where better to start, than be recapturing the title that he held before anyone else, the WWF European Championship......









.....I don't know if anyone told the Bulldog, but the Million Dollar Corporation have a new business model as of late, and that's the fact that if somebody wants to take the European Title from around the waist of Jeff Jarrett, then they're going to have a hell of a fight on their hands.....

.....Rich Steiner and Ted DiBiase haven't actually left the ringside area yet, and Rich slides into the ring behind the Bulldog, nailing him with a cheap shot as DiBiase calls in the reinforcement.....

.....Jarrett and Southern Justice hit the ring too, and as Deebs snatches the microphone from Cole (reminding everyone exactly what happened to Psycho Sid after he messed with the Corporation) his four clients proceed to stomp the Bulldog into the mat, before Southern Justice head outside to collect a wooden table, and Rich Steiner shoves a (single) dollar bill into the mouth of Davey Boy.....it looks like the Bulldog is going to receive the full "Sid Treatment", table and all.....











.....although not on Ken Shamrock's watch apparently.....as the Worlds Most Dangerous Man (and current #1 Contender to the European Championship) comes rushing out from the back with a steel chair in hand, swinging (and missing) wildly at the Corporation Members, who quickly scatter and evacuate the danger zone.....

.....Shammy helps Davey to his feet, before turning and screaming threats to the Corporation (well, mainly Jarrett) as DiBiase leads his men to the back (much to the dismay of Rich Steiner, who wants his dollar back)....if they are going to do this then it's going to be on the Corporation's terms and on the Corporation's time, and this, is NOT that time.....Ken Shamrock will be dealt with....at Dead Man Walking.

Jim Ross sends us to commercial, but before we go he tells us that there is a situation developing backstage......what is that situation? Well it appears to be a little bit of dissension within the ranks of the Nation of Domination.....

.....the screen switches to a shot (filmed from distance....clearly the camera man is attempting to remain incognito) of the back, where Faarooq is dressing down the rest of the Nation for failing to come to his aid last week when Nelson made his way out during Faarooq's match with Jake Roberts.....

.....he tells the group that they are a NATION.....and a Nation should stand behind their leader, but Kama interrupts him, telling him that actually, a Nation is only as STRONG as its leader, and a leader that runs from battle is no leader at all.....

.....Faarooq is p!ssed at that statement, telling the group that if they want to start a revolution, stage a coup, start a rebellion.....whatever they want to call it.....if they want to question his ability to lead, then he's right here, and he's not going ANYWHERE.....

.....he gets in each man's face, asking them one by one if they think they could do a better job, and one by one they all say no.....to which Faarooq tells them to stop their complaining then, telling them that this is exactly what "the man" wants to see....the Nation fighting between themselves because they KNOW that the Nation won't be stopped.....

.....Faarooq says that he's the head of the Nation, and since none of them want the job then they'd better step in line....he's going to deal with Matt Hardy next, and then at In Your House he'll put Nelson down for good.....

.....with that Faarooq storms off towards the Gorilla Position, while the rest of the Nation follow (very) slowly behind him.....the camera zooms in as close as it can, and it just about catches the tail end of a comment by Scorpio, asking Kama "why didn't you tell him?".....Kama just shakes his head though, telling his team mate that "he'll find out soon enough"....and now we DO go to commercial.

Rating: B+

Quote:


VS.

It takes longer than usual, but the Nation does eventually join their "leader" at ringside for this one, while young Matt Hardy is obviously out here alone.....

.....Faarooq can't be happy with the way he conducted himself last week (getting counted out against Jake "The Snake" Roberts) and he'll be looking to make sure that it's not back to back losses here.....

.....the Nation man has gone from one extreme to another here, last week he competed against one of the oldest current WWF superstars with the 42 year old ring veteran Jake Roberts, while this week he's facing one of the youngest in Matt Hardy, but while Hardy is only 23 year of age, he's no rookie either and in fact (in being a former WWF European Champion) he actually has held more titles here in the World Wrestling Federation than Jake Roberts if you can believe that.....

.....the announcers speculate exactly what it was that Scorpio wanted Kama to tell their "leader" a few moments ago, with Rude trying to downplay it as nothing, while Jim Ross isn't quite so convinced, although he does mention that Faarooq shouldn't be running anywhere this evening, because Nelson is NOT in the building.....

.....Faarooq isn't the only one with something to prove here tonight, because Matt Hardy has made no secret of the fact that he wants another bite at the European Championship that he held not so long back (and to his credit, defended virtually weekly) and a victory here would get him one step closer.....he comes damn close on occasion too.....in the end however, The Nation proves to be the difference maker.....and although seemingly reluctant, Kama is finally convinced to put a stop to Hardy's offence, hopping Upton the apron and shoving him from the top rope (while D'Lo distracts the official) leaving Faarooq to snatch him up off the mat and drive him back down to the canvas with the Dominator.

Winner: Faarooq
Rating: B-

Quote:




Following his victory, Faarooq grabs a microphone and calls the rest of the Nation into the ring.....he tells them that the Nation is stronger United than it is Divided, and he's going to put an end to all this talk of him being afraid of anything or anyone right here, right now.....

.....he calls out Big Nelson, telling the former Nation member to get his "fat ass out here, and let Faarooq show you that when it comes to you, the only thing I'm running from is your body odour boy".....

.....obviously Nelson doesn't show, and Rude uses that as an excuse to point out that maybe now it's Nelson that's afraid of Faarooq....Jim Ross is quick to reiterate his earlier point, Nelson is not here this evening, to which Rude is equally quick to reply that Nelson isn't here because he's running scared of Faarooq.....

.....Faarooq says that he thinks he's proved his point.....he says that he ain't scared of a damn thing, at at In Your House, Nelson really WILL be a Dead Man Walking, when Faarooq......AND the Nation.....take the fat man out for good.....

.....he tosses the microphone down to the mat and raises his fist to the sky, staring at the rest of the Nation until they finally join him in the Nation Salute.....by any means necessary? I guess we will find out at In Your House.

From there we head backstage, where Dok Hendrix is standing by with the WWF Tag Team Champions Harlem Heat, and the team that challenged them for those very titles last week, Al Snow and Chris "Don't Call Me Skippy" Candido.....

.....Dok says that despite the fact that Harlem Heat retained the Championships last week, neither team can be happy with the way that match ended (with the New Age Outlaws being the deciding factor) Booker T begins to agree with Dok, saying that's not the way they wanted the match to go down, but Stevie Ray cuts him off.....he tells Dok (and his brother) that a win is a win, and Booker should know that.....he said that when you're coming up, just a young sukka on the streets of 110 Street, you take your wins however they came, or you die trying.....

".....and we here ain't we?.....so we damn sure didn't die trying.....did we win the match on our own? Maybe not....but do we still got the gold?" Stevie pauses for a second to slap the Title belt that's draped over his shoulder "You damn skippy we do hippy.....so the New Age Outlaws, they WILL get theirs Dok, because that's what the Heat do....but the way I see it, last week was nothing but another victory....."

.....Candido doesn't look particularly thrilled by those words, asking Booker if he's as happy with his tainted victory as his brother is? Reluctantly Booker agree's with Stevie, saying that a win is a win, BUT, the Harlem Heat are nothing if not fighting champions, so anytime he and Snow want another shot at the gold, that's fine by him.....

.....Candido says that they'll take that shot, don't worry about that....but first there's the little matter of the New Age Outlaws to contend with.....he says that he and Snow have been tangling with the Outlaws for months now, and it's time to take them out for good....starting tonight.....

Rating: A

Quote:


VS.

So it would appear that the New Age Outlaws are quite in demand at the moment, with Snow, Candido AND the Harlem Heat looking to settle a score with them (although I don't think Stevie Ray really cares either way if I'm honest with you) and it begins right now, as Booker T faces off with the Road Dogg.....

.....Billy Gunn will be going one on one with Chris Candido later in the evening, but he's out here now (along with Sunny) to support his partner, as is Stevie Ray, making for quite the chaotic ringside area.....

.....Road Dogg is a decent worker, and arguably has more experience as a singles competitor, but Booker T shows that he's more than just a tag team wrestler here, dominating his opponent for a good portion of the match.....

.....in the end however, the Tag Team Titles (obviously) aren't on the line here, so the Outlaws are clearly unconcerned with victory and more concerned with causing havoc....because as Sunny uses her womanly charms to briefly distract Stevie Ray, Billy Gunn swipes a Title Belt from ringside and charges into the ring, nailing Booker right in the back of the head right in plain view of the official.....and this one is over....

Winner: Booker T (via disqualification)
Rating: B-

Quote:




.....Booker is down, and it's only the sound of the bell ringing that finally takes Stevie Ray's attention off Sunny, as he rushes to the aid of his brother.....unfortunately his brother is out cold, so the rescue mission soon turns into a two on one beatdown.....






.....but only briefly.....because the Headbangers of all people come Moshing and Thrashing their way down the ramp and dive into the ring, chasing off the Outlaws who quickly retreat to the outside, where the waiting Sunny frankly looks disgusted at the sight of these two skirt wearing, painted faced oddballs.....

.....the Outlaws have had their fun, and take this cue to leave, heading to the back as The Headbangers quickly grab a microphone, stopping the Harlem Heat before they can leave.....

.....they tell Booker and Stevie that this might not be the best time (what with the two of them just getting jumped) but ever since the Heat won the tag titles they've been saying that they're fighting champions....anyone and everyone gets a shot....and they know that they have Steiner and Nash at In Your House, but that's a few weeks away....so how about NEXT week they put the titles on the line against the Headbangers?.....

.....Stevie is still checking on the condition of his brother, and frankly doesn't have time for this crap.....he tells the pair that if they want a shot they got a shot....but just because they're p!ssing him off right now, Stevie is going to give them an extra special Harlem Ass Whipping next week.....

.....the Tag Champs exit the ring and head to the back, leaving Mosh and Thrasher to Headbang in the ring, bouncing off the ropes (and each other) in celebration.....

.....which is when Goldust's music begins to play.....




.....and then abruptly stop again, before being replaced with some unfamiliar (and frankly more morbid) music.....




.....and MGM Productions make their way out.....
















.....I think.....

.....because while this IS Goldust, Marcus and Marlena, they look very, very different.....

.....there isn't a spot of gold anywhere to be seen, in fact there is more black than anything else, as this much more serious threesome make their way out.....

.....they climb into the ring along with the Headbangers (who have come to a complete stop at this strange interruption) and Goldust grabs a microphone, asking Mosh and Thrasher just what they think they are doing?.....

.....Mosh says they thought that was obvious, they're having a good time and getting Title shots.....the real question should be what do Goldust, Marcus and....well, not Marlena because she's looking fine.....but what are Goldust and Marcus doing?.....

.....it's a fair question, because neither Goldie nor Marcus look anything close to what they looked like a few weeks back.....Goldust is completely paint free, while Marcus doesn't have any make-up on whatsoever, has shaved his long hair down to practically nothing....and appears to be wearing boxing shorts.....

.....Goldust says that what he and his esteemed partner are doing, is exactly what they have to do to succeed around here.....casting off the shackles of oppression.....throwing aside the ridiculous costumes.....and walking free of the "bizarre" world they were forced to live in to get their jobs here in the first place.....

.....he says that Vince McMahon revels in other people's misery.....he finds amusement and joy in ridiculing and embarrassing those that work for him.....but if Mosh and Thrasher truly want to make a mark in the tag team division, they need to discard this ragtag, oddball freakshow that McMahon has lumbered them with.....they need to get serious.....they need to stop being a stereotype.....they need to stop being "Headbangers" and just be themselves.....it's the only way.....

.....Mosh and Thrasher burst out laughing at that, telling Goldust that they don't know what he's been taking, but this IS the real them.....they say that they've been moshing and thrashing their whole lives and they're not about to stop now.....and next week, they're going to Headbang their way all the way to the WWF Tag Team Titles......

".....so no offence, whatever this little pity party is all about, it's not our problem.....leave us out of your midlife crisis, and you just worry about you......because next week, we've got titles to win....."

.....and with that the Headbangers music begins to play again, and they Mosh their way over the guardrail and disappear into the crowd, leaving Goldust, Marcus and Marlena standing in the ring......Jim Ross says that he doesn't know what's happening with Goldust, but clearly the Bizarre One is trying to shed his Bizarre Ways.......

.....time for a commercial.....

VS.

We've already seen Jesse James in action tonight....it's the turn of his tag team partner now, as Billy Gunn goes one on one with Chris Candido.....

.....much like in our earlier match, both men are accompanied by their partners (and in Gunn's case, Sweet Ass Sunny too) but UNLIKE earlier, Sunny's distraction techniques don't work on Snow....mainly because he's in a constant distracted state anyway.....

.....this was a good match, both these men know what they're doing in there, arguably being the "workers" to their partners "entertainers" (after all, neither man has their team mates charisma/mic skills....especially Al Snow, who's "Entertainment" skills skyrocketed after working an extended programme with Raven) so this is more of a traditional match than it perhaps would have been if it was Road Dogg vs Al Snow.....

.....that being said, the New Age Outlaws have never been afraid to stretch the rules....or out and out cheat....which is why it comes as no surprise that the Road Dogg hops up onto the apron as Candido is perched on the top rope (looking for his flying headbutt) distracting the former Tag Team Champion and preventing the attack.....

.....Snow quickly sweeps Road Dogg's legs from under him, knocking him back down to the arena floor, before laying him out with a right hand, but the distraction did it's job, and Billy Gunn was able to knock Candido off the top rope, then quickly finish him off with the Famouser for the one, two, three.

Winner: Billy Gunn
Rating: B+

Quote:




The Outlaws run like thieves in the night (laughing all the way) leaving Al Snow to check on his partner, as we go to a promo for In Your House.....after which we return to the arena, where Jake Roberts is making his entrance.....

.....the ring veteran has been steadily advancing through Raven's Divine Comedy, and after seeing his descent through the Circles of Hell, he's arrived tonight at the latest one.....Heresy.....

.....except he doesn't appear to have an opponent.....

.....usually before these matches we are treated to Raven giving his own twisted reasoning for Jakes opponent that evening, but as Jake stands there waiting, no opponent seems to be forthcoming.....








.....ah here we go.....as the Titantron finally flickers into life to show the Deity of the Damned himself, still at that same undisclosed church.....

.....he tells Jake that tonight's test is not a physical challenge to overcome but a mental one.....because when the word Heretic is bought up, there is only one name that immediately springs to mind.....and that's Jake "The Snake" Roberts.....

".....for in this circle you will find the lost souls damned by their own choices.....because make no mistake, the mere word heresy originates from the Greek word for choice.....choice of lifestyle.....choice of religion.....choice of life.....choice of death.....the choice to believe, the choice not to believe.....but more importantly, the choice WHAT to believe.....

.....once you believed in ME Snake.....once you believed that I was the one to carry your name into a new age.....you placed your faith in me and I was reborn in your image, thrust upon a throne that I never wanted because you were too weak to wear the crown.....once you put your faith in me.....now you put in in another......well what about me?.....WHAT ABOUT RAVEN?....."


.....Raven says that Jakes current obsession with his false idol is the only thing standing between Jake and immortality as a Disciple of the Deity of the Damned.....Jake wants Raven.....Jake wants to hurt Raven.....to make him suffer.....Raven knows that.....Raven accepts that.....and Raven will suffer for Jake's sins with a smile on his face.....and Jake can have that.....he can have that next week.....Raven says that all these trials and tribulations can be forgotten.....the Divine Comedy can laugh it's last laugh tonight, and next week, Raven will meet Jake right there in the middle of the ring.....

".....IF......IF you renounce your false idol right here and right now.....cast your "God" out and embrace the fact that there is only ONE true deity.....the Deity of the Damned.....renounce your god, and receive THE only god that will accept you for the Snake that you truly are....."


.....obviously that's a hard no from Jake.....he tells Raven that he hasn't come this far just to fall at one of the final hurdles.....Jake says that he has spent so much of his adult life on his knee's that he will NEVER fall again....he tells Raven that he's right, there is only ONE true God, and it's certainly not Raven.....he tells Raven that he seems to be under this false assumption that Jake's faith prevents him from unleashing unmitigated horrors upon him, but that's where he's mistaken.....he says that his God is a loving God, but he's also a vengeful God.....and if it means that Jake gets to bask in the glory of paradise, he WILL be his Lords Angel of Death.....his vengeance....his fury.....his wrath will be revealed against the ungodly and the unrighteous, and that means YOU Raven.....

.....so no, Jake will not renounce his God, only embrace him tighter as he continues on his path of revenge.....he tells Raven that he will continue on this Divine Comedy, because nothing can stop him until vengeance is his.....for his god.....for his priest.....for himself.....

".....Trust Me....."

We leave Jake in the ring and head to a brief cut scene in the back, where we find the Wolfpac....and just minutes away from facing off against Chris Jericho and Test, Kevin Nash seems to be down one partner, because once again Scott Steiner is nowhere to be seen.....

.....to say that Kevin Nash looks p!ssed off would be an understatement.....in fact, the former WWF Triple Crown Winner looks positively furious, and his mood doesn't improve any by the arrival of poor Michael Cole, who's obviously been sent to try and get word from Big Sexy.....

.....Cole asks Nash where his partner is, to which Nash gives a humourless laugh, saying that he was hoping that Cole could tell him, because he has no idea.....Cole stirs the pot a little, telling Nash that Scotty abandoned him at Survivor Series, left him hanging a few weeks back against the New Age Outlaws, and it looks like again tonight that Big Poppa Pump is going to be a no show.....with In Your House just two weeks away, is Kevin Nash at all concerned that his Tag Team Title match is going to end up being a Handicap Match?.....

".....you know what, Scotty, he's always been something of a free spirit, and that's fine.....up until it starts costing me money....."

.....Nash says that he's got no problems with fighting two guys on his own, hell, in some cases two guys against Big Sexy is a handicap for THEM, not him.....but In Your House is different, because it's for the straps.....not the straps he WANTS (he wants the WWF Title) but anytime you've got gold around your waist it means extra green in the bank, and Kevin Nash is all about making bank.....

.....Nash says that he'll go out there tonight, if Scotty is there then he's there, but if he's NOT....well, Big Sext has all the back up he needs right here....and he and Steiner, (Nash pauses for a moment to open and close his fist) "we're going to be having a very serious conversation....if you know what I mean Dok....."

Rating: B+

Quote:





.....so we go down to ringside now, to find out will he, or won't he.....appear that is.....because while it's SUPPOSED to be Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner facing Hart Foundation members Chris Jericho and Test, it looks as though Big Poppa Pump has got better things to be doing, because he's nowhere to be seen.....

.....Chris Jericho obviously finds this highly amusing, telling Nash that if he just wants to hobble his broken down old body into the ring, then the Ayatollah of Rock'n'Rolla ("and the TRUE big Sexy of the WWF, Chris Jericho") will promise to make this quick.....

".....Hey Yo.....Chris Jericho, you real good at running your mouth Chico, you a real funny guy.....but the way I see it, Big Kev needs a partner, and I'm right here.....so let's see how funny you find it when the big man(g) and the medium sized man(g) shut your mouth for good....."

.....looks like Nash might have a partner after all.....not the one he was supposed to have, but a partner none the less.....obviously Chris Jericho is incensed by this, screaming at the official that Scott Hall isn't in the match.....the referee it would appear has heard just about enough of Jericho's whining though.....he's going to allow it.....and as Chris Jericho throws a monumental temper tantrum, it's time to get this one underway.....

Ok, so what WAS going to be the team of Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner has changed to the team of Kevin Nash and a different Scott, the Scott that he formerly held the WWF Tag Team Titles with....Scott Hall.....

.....it's interesting that Hall has stepped in for Steiner here, mainly because it puts him in the ring with the man that will be challenging him for the Intercontinental Championship at In Your House, Chris Jericho.....

.....Jericho isn't happy about the inclusion of The Bad Guy in this match, and he pretty much goes out of his way to avoid the Intercontinental Champion, letting Test do most of the heavy lifting....at least until Hall finds himself stuck in the face in peril role, because Jericho is happy to get his hands dirty then.....

.....Jericho and Test control a good portion of the match, working over Hall as Nash paces on the apron, at least until Hall catches a Jericho crossbody attempt, which he converts into the Sack of Sh!t (or S.o.S) Fallaway slam, giving him time to crawl his way towards the waiting Nash.....
















.....before he can make the tag however, the sirens wail.....and Big Poppa Pump (along with the beautiful Sable) makes his way out from the back, and he doesn't look happy.....

.....to be fair, I don't think Scotty is ever particularly happy.....but he's REALLY not happy here, making his way down to ringside and asking Nash and Hall (and Waltman who's there at ringside) just what the hell is going on?.....first they refuse to tag him in at the Survivor Series, now they're just TAKING his matches?.....

.....a rather "spirited" debate breaks out between Nash and Steiner (with Hall and Waltman still rather halfheartedly trying to play peacemakers) and that distraction is all Jericho needs, quickly rolling Hall up from behind (hooking a BIG handful of tights) and securing the one, the two......and the three......

Winner(s): Chris Jericho & Test

.....and with the victory in the bag, Jericho and Test get the hell out of dodge and bail to the back, leaving a rather ugly scene to unveil in the ring.....

.....Steiner was p!ssed when he came out, but now Nash is FURIOUS, and Scott Hall doesn't look much happier after being defeated by his In Your House opponent, and the three men decide to air their differences in the ring, as Waltman does his best to defuse the situation.....

.....Steiner again repeats his earlier question, wanting to know why the hell Scott Hall was wrestling in HIS match, with Nash giving the obvious answer, Steiner was nowhere to be found come match time.....Scotty isn't buying that though.....

".....BECAUSE IF YOU'D REALLY BEEN LOOKING FOR ME, YOU WOULD HAVE FOUND ME....I'M A GODDAMN GENETIC FREAK, I'M PRETTY HARD TO MISS.....ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS FOLLOW THE SOUND OF SABLE SCREAMING MY NAME....."

.....Steiner says that they've been trying to keep him out of the spotlight since Survivor Series, and that's fine, Scotty doesn't want to be a part of their stupid little Kennel Club anyway (that's Wolfpac Scotty) all he wants is what's coming to him....his gold, his peaks.....

".....AND SABLE BETWEEN THE SHEETS........NOW THEY SAY, THAT TWO OUTTA THREE AIN'T BAD.....WELL I SAY THATS BULLSH!T.....BECAUSE AS LONG AS THERES NO GOLD AROUND MY WAIST, SABLE AIN'T HAPPY.....AND WHEN SABLE AIN'T HAPPY, SCOTT STEINER AIN'T HAPPY, AND BOYS.....YOU DON'T WANNA SEE ME WHEN I'M NOT HAPPY....."

.....Steiner says that as far as he is concerned, when In Your House rolls around, Kevin Nash can stay in the back and braid his hair for all Steiner cares, he'll go out there and whoop Harlem Heat on his own.....

.....Nash obviously isn't going for that, telling Steiner that if ANYONE is going to be the one to defeat Harlem Heat, it's going to be him, and if Scott Steiner doesn't like that, then he can just kiss his big seven foot ass.....

.....obviously Mr. Volatile, Scott Steiner isn't going to take kindly to words like that and once again a shoving match breaks out between these two former World Champions.....

.....Waltman and (surprisingly) Hall decide that this is neither the time nor the place, and attempt to separate the pair, but they don't seem to want to settle down anytime soon, and in the ensuing tussle Scotty sends Waltman flying with a huge shove, while Nash actually plants Hall on his ass with a shove of his own, but while Nash quickly realises what he's done and turns to help his Wolfpac partner up, Steiner doesn't seem to give a damn.....he tells Nash to show up at In Your House to collect his half of the tag titles, but other than that....

".....STAY OUTTA MY WAY.....ALL OF YOU....."

.....before marching to the back (with Sable in hot persuit) while Jim Ross and Rick Rude question how in the hell these pair are going to work on the same page at In Your House.....Dead Man Walking indeed.....lets go to a commercial ahead of our main event.

We're back from commercial, and it's back to back tag team matches (and back to back Hart Foundation matches) here on Raw, as the WWF Champion, The Undertaker teams up once again with Stone Cold Steve Austin, to face Bret and Owen Hart.....

.....the Hart Brothers will be looking to continue the Canadians good form this evening, following Chris Jericho and Test's victory a short while ago, and they couldn't pick better opponents if they are looking to make an impact....after all, Bret will be facing Steve Austin at In Your House (with a shot at the WWF Championship on the line) beat Austin tonight and that gives Bret a major momentum booster on his way to In Your House, and should he beat Austin at In Your House too, well.....the current WWF Champion is the Undertaker, his other opponent this evening, so a victory over him tonight would make Bret pretty confident should he move on to face the Deadman.....

.....this was a great match too....while Bret and Austin were keen to resume their near two year rivalry, the Deadman and Bret certainly have their history, not to mention the fact that the Undertaker and Stone Cold are hardly the best of friends....it made for quite the explosive affair.....

.....in the end however, it seems like Bret is more interested in doing damage to his two (potentially future) opponents, because as Austin and Taker begin to take firm control of the match, Jericho and Test make their second appearance of the night.....storming the ring and drawing the disqualification from the official.....

Winner(s): The Undertaker & Steve Austin (via disqualification)

.....and much like last week, a four on two beatdown ensues.....if the Hitman wants to become the next World Wrestling Federation Champion, then injuring the man he has to face for the number one contendership AND injuring the current champion in the same night might not be a bad idea.....and as Owen, Jericho and Test break away to lay a three on one beating on the Undertaker, Bret drags Austin over to the corner, where he gets him (and himself) into position, wrapping Stone Colds legs around the ring post and locking in a brutal looking figure four leg lock.....











.....and that's when the pyro erupts.....













.....and Kane makes his way out from the back (with Brian Pillman snapping at his heels and yapping like a rabid coyote) and marches straight down to ringside.....

.....the Corporate Cannon remains at ringside, but Kane steps right over that top rope and begins throwing sledgehammer blows at the entire Hart Foundation.....Jericho and Owen both eat a big shot that sends them scurrying to the outside, while Test runs right into a Big Boot that wields the same result.....Kane doesn't seem overly interested in either Bret Hart or Steve Austin, but the Hitman breaks the hold he has on Stone Cold to join his fellow Foundation members, as the four men beat a hasty retreat past a cackling Brian Pillman (who is currently hopping up and down in manic glee with spittle flying everywhere) as he waves them off.....

.....The Deadman drags himself back to his feet and comes face to face with Kane, as the two brothers stare each other down for the second week running.....

.....Pillman is screaming at Kane to take his shot....do as he's told, take the Deadman out....but Kane is clearly reluctant....the Undertaker simply lowers his arms to his side, telling his brother that he won't fight him anymore.....do what ever he must, but remember who he is, and that NOBODY can make him do ANYTHING that he doesn't want to do.....

.....Kane is obviously torn, but Brian Pillman's screech is clearly becoming too much, because suddenly his arm snaps out and his hand closes around the throats of his brother.....

.....to his credit, Taker doesn't so much as flinch, staring Kane square in those dead eyes as he tells him that he won't fight back.....he won't raise a hand to his brother.....

.....and now Brian Pillman is beyond frantic, and he climbs into the ring to hurl abuse at Kane, telling him to finish the Deadman....do it now....do it like he did to his dear old mommy.....

.....not the wisest thing to say.....

.....because (with one hand still wrapped around the throat of the Undertaker) Kane's OTHER arm snaps out, and he grabs Brian Pillman right by the larynx.....and the Corporate Cannon's eyes practically bulge out of his head.....









.....until Kane suddenly gets spun around from nowhere, and dropped.....


.....with a Stone Cold Stunner.....


.....Steve Austin is back to his feet (ok, foot.....he's got a bit of a limp) and with Kane on the mat he flips (a still in shock) Brian Pillman the bird, before dropping HIM with a Stunner too.....

.....Stone Cold drops down to the mat to spit venom in the ear of his former Hollywood Blonde team mate, before getting back to his feet again and turning to leave.....only to get spun straight back around by the Deadman, who isn't happy that Austin just Stunned his brother.....

.....Austin could really care less about The Undertaker's family problems, telling him that "this ain't Jerry Springer, and I don't give a damn about your Big Red B@stard Brother either", before again turning to head to the back.....

.....before The Undertaker spins him back round AGAIN.....

.....and gets Stunned for his troubles.....

.....Stone Cold Steve Austin ain't out here to play happy families, and he's certainly not in the habit of letting ANYONE put their hands on him, even if those hands are cold and dead like our WWF Champion.....Austin may be walking out of here tonight on one leg, but at least he IS walking out of here, unlike Brian Pillman, Kane.......and The Undertaker.....all of whom are flat on their backs, and you've got to assume that there's going to be hell to pay, somewhere down the line......we'll see you next week folks.
