>> RAW IS WAR REPORTBy Joe De Leon
A tribute to Martin Luther King kicked off the show.
Stone Cold Steve Austin Interview.
- Stone Cold Steve Austin did the same exact interview in San Antonio,
Texas on 1/11. Michael Cole attempted to interview Austin at first, but
Austin kicked him out of the ring. Austin said he would give Mick Foley
credit for winning the Heavyweight Title, but there was good news and
bad news. The good news was that Mankind was a good and deserving
Heavyweight Champion, but the bad news was when the bell would ring at
WrestleMania XV, Austin would be in the corner to wrestle Mankind.
Austin admitted he new it was his last chance to gain a shot at the
Heavyweight Title, but there was no way anyone would eliminate him from
the Rumble. Austin acknowleged that Vince McMahon was #2 in the Rumble
and asked the crowd for some "hell yeah's," saying if they wanted him to
beat McMahon's ass all night long and win the Rumble. The crowd gave a
positive reaction. Austin said he would beat McMahon's ass all night
long, win the Rumble, and McMahon would know "Austin 3:16 says I just
whipped your ass" after it was all said and
done. Austin raised his hands on the ropes and drunk some beers on the
Backstage, Jesse James was looking for ammunition for his upcoming
Hardcore Title match with Gangrel.
Jesse James defeated Gangrel with a Chairshot, to retain the Hardcore
- Jesse James said he would be vampire slayer and did The New Age Outlaw
introduction with the mention of the Hardcore Title instead of the Tag
Team Titles. James and Gangrel wrestled in and out of the ring. Both
used tables to their advantage. At one point,
James had to execute three different maneuvers to make the table break
that Gangrel was laying on. After James hit two chairshots to Gangrel's
head, he took the win.
Backstage, Stone Cold Steve Austin remained in the arena for some
reason, and drunk some beers.
Backstage, Ken Shamrock was lacing his boots, preparing for something.
Billy Gunn defeated Test by Disqualification.
- Billy Gunn said if the crowd didn't think he would beat Ken Shamrock
for the Intercontinental Title at Royal Rumble, then he had two words
for them - "Suck It." When Gunn was about to make the pin after nailing
Test with the Rocker Dropper, Ken Shamrock
interfered. Shamrock destroyed Gunn, slamming his head into the table
and staircase, and putting him in the Ankle Lock. Officials tried to put
Shamrock to a stop, but they were unsuccessful. Shamrock snapped, and
destroyed the timekeeper's table, and wanted to hit
someone with the bell hammer.
Backstage, the doctor was attending to Billy Gunn's severe ankle
injury. The doctor had to twist the ankle to get it back where it was
supposed to be. Gunn shouted out in pain.
Backstage, Kevin Kelly interviewed Jeff Jarrett and Owen Hart, along
with Debra McMichael. Both said they would beat The Big Bossman and Ken
Shamrock for the Tag Team TItles the following Monday on Raw is War.
Bossman and Shamrock attacked Hart and Jarrett. They brawled around the
backstage area, and officials attempted to break it up.
Another training video of Vince McMahon was shown, along with Shane
McMahon. Vince said he was ready Stone Cold Steve Austin, and practiced
a match with other people in a ring. He did Austin's moves and gestures
while practicing the match. Vince said
even if he was eliminated from the Rumble, there would be no chance in
hell Austin would win, because he had the $100,000 bounty on the line
for the other superstars.
Backstage, The Big Bossman attacked Mankind. The two would go
one-on-one later in the show for the Heavyweight Title in a Hardcore
Rules match. Mankind fought back and slammed Bossman into the camera.
Steve Blackman defeated Dan Severn by Disqualification.
- Michael Cole said that Mankind and The Big Bossman were still brawling
backstage. Steve Blackman called for the Lethal Kick, but Dan Severn was
disqualified after giving him a low blow. Cole noted that was an unusual
move by Severn, and he was a totally
different person. Severn put Blackman in the Dragon Sleeper, as
officials attempted to put him to a stop.
Backstage, Stone Cold Steve Austin continued to remain in the arena,
drinking beers. Mankind and The Big Bossman continued to brawl
Hardcore Rules: Mankind defeated The Big Bossman by Disqualficiation,
to retain the Heavyweight TItle.
- The match started with Mankind and The Big Bossman already brawling
after coming out of the entranceway. The match was very violent. At one
point, The Big Bossman slammed Mankind's head on a chair that was set-up
and into a steel staircase several times.
After hitting the Double-Arm DDT, Mankind put the Socko Mandible Claw
down Bossman's throat. Bossman was about to submit, but The Rock
interrupted with a chairshot on Mankind. The Rock did brief commentary,
basically saying he would be Mankind in the "I
Quit" Heavyweight Title match at Rumble. The Rock hit Mankind with the
Rock Bottom on a chair, but Mankind's head was the actual body part that
was impacted on to the chair. Jerry Lawler said Mankind's head was like
a rock, because it was completely banged
into everything in the match.
Backstage, Mark Henry begged Chyna not to do something, because his
mother was there. Stone Cold Steve Austin was also shown sitting down.
Backstage, Vince McMahon, along with The Rock and Shane McMahon, told
Kane he would wrestle the match with The Rock later in the show the
exact way he tells him to. Kane seemed angry, when The Rock was
insulting him and McMahon was ordering him around.
- Chyna said that Mark Henry's 24-hour time period to make a decision
was up. She asked, "What's it going to be? Are you going to tell the
truth or am I going to have to humilate you in front of all these people
and your mother?" Henry begged Chyna not to do it, but Chyna insisted
for Henry to tell the truth. Henry admitted he never had sex with Chyna,
like he originally claimed. Henry's mom was shown in the crowd. Chyna
ordered the footage to be rolled anyway. Footage was shown from the
previous Monday on Raw is
War, when Chyna left Sammy and Mark Henry alone in the locker room to
go get some ice, since Henry was hit in the groin by PMS. Sammy locked
the door, and said she would make Henry feel better in a very deep
voice. Sammy kissed Henry, and performed oral sex. In the ring, Henry
was crying and his mom looked in shame. Henry rubbed his hands on Sammy,
and put his hands up her dress, and found out that he/she had a penis.
Sammy took off her wig, and said, "That's why they call me Sammy, baby."
Henry threw up in the restroom. Chyna yelled at Henry, saying she would
never have sex with him if they were the last two people on Earth. Chyna
apologized to Henry's mom that she had to do what she did, as she
low-blowed Henry. Henry's mom spanked him on the rear and directed him
to the back of the locker room.
Backstage, pre-recorded footage was shown of Mark Henry's mom spanking
Backstage, Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson were discussing strategies
for their upcoming handicap match with Chyna. They argued on who should
finish up the match, using their football and wrestling backgrounds as
to why they should finish it.
Al Snow defeated Goldust via Pinfall.
- Michael Cole announced that Billy Gunn's ankle was okay, and even
though it was sore, he would be ready for his upcoming Intercontinental
Title match with Ken Shamrock at Royal Rumble. Jerry Lawler was holding
onto the new Head, and the winner of the match would get it back. Snow
pinned Goldust after a unique pinning combination. Snow continued to
attack Goldust, but the moment he got Head back, he stopped. Goldust got
back up, and nailed Snow with Shattered Dreams. Goldust grabbed head,
hit Snow with
it, and stole it again.
Backstage, Stone Cold Steve Austin remained in the arena.
Backstage, Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco continued to argue over who
would cover Chyna.
Median (Dennis Knight) asked Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole if they
could feel it. He was talking really crazy. The Undertaker made his way
out, with The Acolytes, Paul Bearer, and Median near him. The
Undertaker, sitting in his chair, said Median was once
a forgotten face, but now he sees and feels what we can't. The
Undertaker talked about more evil stuff, and there would be another
victim at the Royal Rumble. The Undertaker's symbol was lit on fire with
Handicap Match: Chyna defeated Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson via
- Gerald Brisco and Pat Patterson made fun of each other once they were
beaten down by Chyna. At one point, Patterson put Chyna in an airplane
spin, but he got dizzy, and Brisco pushed him out of the ring. Patterson
went for a low blow, but it didn't work,
since Chyna is a female. Chyna grabbed both men's groins, and they
argued once Chyna let go. Chyna was pushed by Patterson off the top
rope, to the ground. Sable came out, to even the odds, but was
immediately attacked by Luna. Brisco hit the Stooges Elbow, and had the
pin, but Patterson pulled him out, and wanted to make the pin. Brisco
pulled Patterson off Chyna when he tried to make the pin. Brisco and
Patterson continued to punch each other, and Chyna took advantage of it.
Brisco put powder in Chyna's
eyes. She was blinded, as Brisco and Patterson patted her rear and
breasts (censored). Chyna DDT'd Patterson and Brisco, placed them on top
of each other, and made the pin.
Backstage, Stone Cold Steve Austin was shown walking around.
Backstage, Vince and Shane McMahon talked with The Rock on his
upcoming match with Kane, which Commissioner Shawn Michaels ordered.
Kane and The Rock went to a No-Contest.
- Michael Cole said Sable was fine after the attack from Luna, and she
would be ready to defend the Women's Title against Luna at Royal Rumble.
The entire Corporation was at the ringside area. Vince McMahon said to
Kane he was to fall down once The Rock pushed him with a finger, and a
pin was to be made. McMahon warned Kane not to do anything stupid, but
he flicked off McMahon. Team Corporate members began to attack Kane. The
Rock asked Team Corporate members to leave the inside of the ring,
because he decided to wrestle the match. The Rock wrestled in a $500
shirt, pants, and dress-up shoes. He did his commentary skit when
wrestling Kane on the outside of the ring. Kane took the advantage
inside the ring, but Team Corporate members entered and started to
attack Kane. Mankind made his way down to the ring with a chair, and
took out everyone with it. He went after The Rock through the aisle.
Stone Cold Steve Austin popped out from behind. When The Rock turned
around to see Austin, he was nailed behind with a chair by Mankind, as
the show went off the air.
>> NITRO REPORTBy Joe De Leon
Pre-recorded footage was shown of The Four Horsemen going over Ric and
David Flair's Souled Out match. Flair was going crazy, and throwing
objects everywhere. The Wolfpac arrived in their limousine, and they
were all bragging about the attack they layed out on the Flair's the
previous night. As they made their ways out, they were attacked by The
Four Horsemen. Flair shattered a window, and the limousine speeded off
with The Wolfpac inside.
Ric Flair Interview - (Conducted by Gene Okerlund)
- Ric Flair made his way to the ring, after attempting to attack The
Wolfpac. Flair said that he would not let Hollywood Hogan wander off a
free man. He announced Hogan would wrestle his ass for the Heavyweight
Title at Super Brawl IX. Flair called Hogan a
son-of-a-bitch and it wasn't bleeped out. Flair said after Hogan
attacked his 9-year-old son, he would kill the Heavyweight Champion.
Flair mentioned that Hogan had a life outside the wrestling business and
a family. He said he knew Eric Bischoff was behind The Wolfpac-NWO, and
wanted his ass out right then and there. Bischoff came out, with a
Wolfpac T-Shirt on, and said he had nothing to do with the attack on
Flair and his son at Souled Out. Flair announced Bischoff would wrestle
him again later in the show. Bischoff said there was nothing in his new
contract that said he had to wrestle. Flair said if Bischoff beat him,
he could shave his head. Bischoff refused. But Flair then offered that
Bischoff would also have the company back if he beat him. Bischoff
backed his tracks. David Flair made his way down, and shoved Bischoff
out of the way. David said with anger, he wanted to wrestle Bischoff.
Bischoff accepted David's challenge, instead of Ric's. Ric at first said
Bischoff would wrestle him, but Bischoff said it was too late. Ric
eventually went along with it, but said if David beat Bischoff,
Bischoff's head would be shaved.
Booker T. defeated Chris Jericho (w/Ralphus) with the Missle Dropkick.
- We forgot to mention in our Souled Out report that this match was made
after Booker T. challenged Chris Jericho to a match at WCW's Internet
position, because Booker was disappointed in Jericho's victory over
Saturn. There were also interviews with
Konnan and David Flair. Anyway, Booker and Jericho wrestled a long,
hard fight. After Booker hit a sidekick and the Missle Dropkick, he took
J.J. Dillon Interview - (Conducted by Gene Okerlund)
- J.J. Dillon announced he had suspended WCW referee, Scott Dickinson,
for a month, because of his recent alignment with Chris Jericho and
mistreatment toward Saturn. Dillon said he would do what he could to
have a triangle match between Goldberg, Bam
Bam Bigelow, and Scott Hall later in the show. He was excited to see the
David Flair vs. Eric Bischoff later in the show, where if David won,
Bischoff's hair would be shaved, but if Bischoff won, he would gain back
the ownership of WCW.
Backstage, Gene Okerlund interviewed Rey Mysterio, Jr. Mysterio said
he didn't take off his LWO T-Shirt a few weeks ago on Ric Flair's
request, because red, white, and green were his color. Mysterio said his
mask was still everything to him and it would never been taken off. He
said he wouldn't be intimidated by Lex Luger or anyone else. He said he
was ready for Luger and to bring it on.
David Flair defeated Eric Bischoff via Knockout.
- Referee, Randy Anderson searched David Flair and Eric Bischoff for any
illegal objects. Bischoff at first dominated David, but David came out
with a one-punch knockout for the win. David revealed he had a roll of
quarters when he executed the punch. The Four Horsmen made their ways
down, and Ric Flair shaved Bischoff's hair. It was nothing but gray hair
at the bottom, after the black hair was shaved off. He must of colored
it or something. Larry Zbyszko said, "Eric Bischoff is aging before my
eyes." Bischoff was totally embarrassed and covered his hair with his
hands. It was revealed after the match, with a replay, that Anderson was
the one that gave David the roll of quaters.
Backstage, Chris Jericho complained that J.J. Dillon was not wearing
the dress for 90 days like he was supposed to. Jericho showed Dillon the
dress and the contract. Saturn made his way down the hall, and Dillon
explained to him he had to wear the dress, with Jericho complaining in
the background. Saturn went with it, and went into the locker room to
put the dress on.
- Konnan did his introduction, without mentioning The Wolfpac. He said
Kevin Nash and Lex Luger were in cahoots with Hollywood Hogan the entire
time. Konnan said he spent his entire life with Nash and Luger, and they
would all pay back. He even went on to say that Nash and Luger would
toss his salad and peal his potato.
Tag Team Title Tournament Rematch: The Faces of Fear (Meng and The
Barbarian, w/Jimmy Hart) vs. Bobby Duncum, Jr. and Mike Enos resulted in
- The referee had a lot of trouble controlling the match. During the
match, The Wolfpac arrived. Eric Bischoff and the original NWO told what
Ric Flair did to the former WCW owner's hair. The Wolfpac-NWO made their
ways immediately to the ring. They destroyed
both tag teams. Scott Hall stunned all of them with his taser. Eric
Bischoff made his way down, and was wearing a Wolfpac hat (to cover the
hair and to show he was aligned with the group) and an original NWO
- Kevin Nash hyped up the crowd. Hollywood Hogan accepted Ric Flair's
Super Brawl IX challenge, after what he did to Eric Bischoff. Hogan said
for the next five weeks, The Wolfpac-NWO would make Flair's life a
Disco Inferno defeated Wrath with the Chartbuster.
- Disco Inferno was sporting Wolfpac colors. For some reason, Tony
Schiavone mentioned Alex Wright was scheduled to be at the arena, but
no-showed. Mike Tenay also mentioned when The Wolfpac made their ways
into the arena, Scott Steiner said, "Your knees look good" (referring to
Saturn because of the dress). As Wrath was dominating, Scott Hall made
his way down, with the taser. When Wrath was about to execute the
Meltdown, Hall attempted to stun Wrath, but Wrath just knocked him out.
Disco caught Wrath with the Chartbuster to take a surprising victory.
As The Nitro Girls were dancing, Scott Steiner came out, and harrassed
them. Kimberly argued with Steiner, and told all the girls to leave.
Scott Steiner (w/Buff Bagwell) defeated Saturn by making him submit to
the Steiner Recliner.
- Scott Steiner insulted the crowd and Saturn. Steiner mentioned the
words "queer" and "whore" to Saturn, which made him go crazy. Buff
Bagwell got several cheapshots on Saturn. Steiner drew a lot of head
with the crowd, and a fan even gave him a Michigan State hat - an arch
rival of Ohio State. Saturn was about to execute the Death Valley
Driver, but Bagwell was a distraction. Steiner then strapped on the
Steiner Recliner to take the win. Not sure if it was a Television Title
match, since there was no mention of
Kevin Nash and Lex Luger Interview, with Elizabeth.
- Kevin Nash made fun of Konnan's ring introduction. Nash said he and
Lex Luger thought Konnan had no heart, no endurance, and no soul. Nash
and Luger complimented Elizabeth's looks. Luger went on to discuss
matters on Rey Mysterio, Jr. He said that he would not only beat
Mysterio but take his mask off. Luger gave Mysterio the choice to
wrestle or not wrestle the match.
Backstage, Scott Steiner harrassed Kimberly. The Nitro Girls told him
to leave Kimberly alone. Security came in to put Steiner to a stop.
Psychosis defeated Juventud Guerrera with the Guillotine Legdrop.
- After Juventud Guerrera made a crucial mistake, Psychosis took the win
with the Guillotine Legdrop. Psychosis would get a shot at the
Cruiserweight Title in the near future.
Rey Mysterio, Jr. defeated Lex Luger by Disqualficiation.
- Before the match, Lex Luger offered Rey Mysterio, Jr. not to wrestle
the match. Mysteiro refused, and was brutally attacked by Luger in
return. Mysterio tried to fight back, but couldn't out-power Luger.
Kevin Nash made his way down to the ringside area
during the match. Each time Luger attempted to remove Mysterio's mask,
Mysterio would fight back. Nash finally got frustrated and entered the
ring to attack Mysterio. Both Wolfpac members continued the attempt to
remove the mask, but Mysterio fought back. Nash
and Luger Jack-Knife Powerbombed and Torture Racked Mysterio. Finally,
Konnan made the save, and scared off The Wolfpac with a chair.
Scott Steiner continued to harass Kimberly. Security got on to him
Goldberg defeated Bam Bam Bigelow and Scott Hall (w/Disco Inferno) by
- Bam Bam Bigelow started off the match by immediately attacking Scott
Hall and Disco Inferno as he quickly made his way through the aisle.
Bigelow and Goldberg teamed up for the first time ever, but eventually
went at it. Goldberg at first was set to Jackhammer
Bigelow, but Hall interfered. Goldberg then was set to Jackhammer Hall,
but The Wolfpac-NWO interfered. All teamed up on the attack on Goldberg,
until The Four Horsemen made the save. The Four Horsemen and Goldberg
were the ones left standing in the ring,
while Ric Flair ran after Hogan and his limousine outside of the arean,
as the show went off the air.
>> TERRY TAYLOR QUITS WCWBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
Most of the fans know him as the Red Rooster, the person with a 'lame'
rooster gimmick, always jobbing to other superstars. Then he changed the
gimmick to "Terrific" Terry Taylor, but still, he continued to do the
J-O-B for the others. Although he possessed alot of talent, he never was
given the chance to shine in the World Wrestling Federation.
He moved to WCW, where he got an office job, booker, with Hogan,
Bischoff, Rhodes, Sullivan and others. He was moved to the production
section by WCW lately, instead of letting him stay with the booking
team. For the past few weeks, Taylor has been working with WCW without
any contract, so he was able to get out anytime he wanted to.
That time was yesterday, when he quit WCW right before the Nitro
As of press time, we're not sure if he's going to the WWF or not, but
you can never exclude that possibility, since he's one of wrestling's
best bookers today. I'm sure that Vince McMahon and company will try to
get him back to TitanLand.

- Main event for SuperBrawl is now Hulk Hogan vs Ric Flair for the
- After the cameras went off the air yesterday during Nitro, the Four
Horseman came down to help Goldberg, and they cleaned house. Hogan ran
backstage with some of the members of the NWO. Flair followed Hogan and
the NWO back, as the remaining Horseman fought with the NWO.
- Sting is expected to work all the house shows he's been advertised
for, but won't be on television for several more weeks, because of
personal problems at home. Meltzer
says it usually means drugs, but that is not the case with Sting. Many
are saying Sting will return with a new look. Sting returned to WCW at
the beginning of January at house shows in Augusta and Macon, Georgia.
Crowds, as of late, have been chanting, "We want Sting," which is really
surprising since he hasn't been around for months. The only show I have
down for Sting is 2/7 in Cleveland, Ohio against Scott Hall, but there
are probably more. (De Leon)
- Tommy Boy Records is working on a WCW entrance music album. No word on
when it will be released, but I would imagine in the spring of summer
time. The NWO album will debut in the United States soon as well, which
has already been released in Japan. (DeLeon)
