>> RAW IS WAR REPORTBy WWF.COM
With the capacity crowd on its feet, RAW IS WAR kicked off live from
Pittsburgh. The action started immediately, as the New Age Outlaws
defended their Tag Team Championship against the team of Al Snow and
Steve Blackman. Prior to the match, Al Snow unsuccessfully attempted to
give the duo a team name - both Snow Storm and Snow Balls were rejected
Also before the match, Chris Benoit, Perry Saturn, Eddy Guerrero and
Dean Malenko were spotted sitting in the front row of the arena. Jim
Ross quickly questioned what the four athletes were doing there, as they
are not under contract with the World Wrestling Federation.
Before a decisive winner could be named, Road Dogg took it upon himself
to attack the four radicals in the front row. In a matter of minutes,
Benoit, Saturn, Guerrero and Malenko destroyed the Tag Team Champions in
the middle of the ring. After the assault, the four free agents walked
up the ramp towards the backstage area. It was later learned that Cactus
Jack invited them to the show.
After the break, Pittsburgh's own Kurt Angle, in Rock fashion, announced
that he had finally returned to his hometown. Needless to say, Angle did
not get the response in which he was looking for. After berating the
crowd, the Olympian announced that he would later be taking on the
Backstage, the New Age Outlaws were seen arguing with Triple H and
Stephanie about what had just happened in regards to the beating they
had received. Triple H and Stephanie both agreed that the Outlaws were
on their own on this one.
D-Von Dudley then took on Christian. The pace was both fast and furious.
It came to an end when, behind the official's back, Edge delivered a
devastating kick to the back of D-Von's head. The impact proved to be
enough, as Christian rolled D-Von up for the pin. After the match, the
Dudleys attempted to dismember Edge and Christian, but Matt and Jeff
Hardy hit the ring and absolutely destroyed the unexpecting Dudleys -
highlighted by a Jeff Hardy centon bomb onto Buh-Buh Ray Dudley, as he
sat motionless on a table.
Federation cameras then caught up with the four guests of Cactus Jack as
they did a number on the Mean Street Posse.
Next up, the dancing duo - Too Cool - took on the new look Big Show.
Despite his mammoth size, Big Show had some trouble with the talented
tandem in the early going. It appeared as though Too Cool would be able
to score the victory when Show turned it up a notch, and choke slammed
his way to a win. After the match, The Rock appeared on the TitanTron.
In typical Rock fashion, the Great One verbally abused both Big Show and
Kurt Angle, while the sell-out crowd waited on every word.
Kurt Angle entered the ringside area to a deafening round of boos. The
jeers quickly turned to cheers, as The Rock's music hit the arena and
the most electrifying man in sports entertainment made his way to the
ring. The Rock wasted no time in attacking the supposed undefeated
superstar. The tide shifted back and forth several times before the
match finally came to an end. When it was all said and done, it was The
Rock scoring the victory via pinfall after Tazz threw a runaway Angle
back into the ring.
After the commercial break, Chris Jericho, who was accompanied by Chyna,
battled X-Pac, who was seconded by his new love affair, Tori, in a
non-title bout. As expected, the pace was lightning quick, and the
momentum of the match swayed in the favor of both superstars a number of
times. After nearly 15 minutes of action, X-Pac was able to score the
victory over Y2J - give the assist to Tori, as she clobbered the champ
with the Intercontinental Championship belt.
Next up, The Kat defended the Women's Championship against Intercourse,
PA, native, Hervina, in the first-ever Lumber Jill Snow Bunny Match.
With the exception of her manly appearance, not much was know about
Hervina going into the match. The match, and The Kat's title reign, came
to an end when Hervina was able to keep The Kat down for the 1-2-3.
After the match, it was revealed that Hervina was in fact Harvey
Before the next match got under way, Cactus Jack was seen backstage
asking Triple H and Stephanie if they would be interested in signing
Benoit, Saturn, Guerrero and Malenko. Both Triple H and Stephanie said
they would think about it.
The Holly cousins then took on Viscera in a two on one encounter. The
one-man advantage proved to be too much for Big Vis, as the Hollys were
able to defeat the big man via pinfall.
After that, highlights were shown from Halftime Heat's live interview
with Stone Cold Steve Austin. The interview could be seen in its
entirety on StoneCold.com.
Reporting from the World Wrestling Federation's site based entertainment
complex - WWF New York - Lilian Garcia broke the news that later in the
week, the Federation will hold a press conference from the complex
concerning football. Specifics were limited. WWF.com will keep you
posted as this situation develops.
Matt Hardy then took on Buh-Buh Ray Dudley. Buh-Buh Ray was accompanied
to the ring by the APA - the Acolytes Protection Agency. Earlier in the
evening, the Acolytes were hired by the Dudleys to make sure they were
protected. Buh-Buh was awarded the match after Matt was disqualified for
using a chair. After the match, the APA and the Dudleys outnumbered the
Hardys. Christain quickly ran to ringside in an attempt to help the
Hardys. His effort was all for not, as the Dudleys powerbombed Jeff onto
Matt onto three tables.
Backstage, Triple H and Stephanie informed Benoit, Saturn, Guerrero and
Malenko that their services were not wanted by the World Wrestling
Federation. The quartet was then asked to exit the building.
In the final match of the evening, Federation Champion Triple H defended
the title against Kane. Still hurting from his Street Fight with Cactus
Jack at the Royal Rumble, a heavily bandaged Triple H waited in the
middle of the ring while Kane's music blared throughout the arena.
However, Kane was nowhere to be found. The Champion gave Kane 10 seconds
to come to the ring. Again, Kane was nowhere to be found - but Cactus
Jack wasn't. As Triple H completed the 10 count, Cactus emerged from
backstage to confront the McMahon\Helmsley Era. After offering Triple H
his opinion of him, Cactus attacked. Soon thereafter, so did Chris
Benoit, Perry Saturn, Eddy Guerrero and Dean Malenko. When it was all
said and done, the five competitors absolutely decimated Triple H,
leaving him helpless in the middle of the ring.
>> NITRO REPORTBy WCW.COM
The fans of Wilkes-Barre were in for a treat. And they knew it. The
Internet was abuzz all week with the news that Nature Boy Ric Flair was
making his return to Monday Nitro. Flair hadn't been seen in a long
time, and the fans as well as WCW wanted to know where he stood. He
came, he spoke, and in the end, he proved that, without a shadow of a
doubt, the Nature Boy is still the dirtiest player in the game.
Backstage, the nWo spoke with Kevin Nash via telephone. Nash told
Jarrett that he would be the acting commissioner for the night.
The nWo made their way to the ring with Jeff Jarrett wearing a sport
coat, dressed for his new role. Jarrett told the crowd that Nash
wouldn't be in the building and that he, The Chosen One, would be in
charge. Steiner got on the mic and trashed the crowd. He officially
inducted The Harris Boys into the nWo, giving them the black and silver
shirts. Jarrett announced that he would be facing Sid for the WCW
Heavyweight Title at SuperBrawl. The Chosen One said the main event
later in the night would be himself and The Harris Boys against Sid and
two partners he would name later. Jarrett ended the interview by telling
all the boys in the back that he would be accepting bribes.
Tony Schiavione, Mike Tenay and Mark Madden (filling in for an under the
weather Bobby Heenan) talked about the upcoming matches on the show.
Outside, Nature Boy Ric Flair arrived at the arena in a limousine.
Backstage, J Biggs spoke with Stevie Ray and Big T.
Backstage, Terry Funk asked Arn Anderson with concern where Ric Flair
was. Arn told Funk he didn't know and walked away.
Cruiserweight Title Tournament
Lash LeRoux d. Evan Karagias with 3 Count
Karagias attempted to sing before the match, but LeRoux put a stop to
it. Evan took exception and attacked Lash with a vengeance. Lash did a
dive on Moore and Helms on the outside, but took the steam out of
himself in the process. Back in the ring, LeRoux scored the pinfall
out of nowhere, advancing in the tournament.
Backstage, the nWo turned the caterer away, demanding lobster and filet
Interview: David Flair, Crowbar and Daffney Unger Mean Gene attempted to
interview David, but Flair just laughed uncontrollably. Gene then turned
the mic to Crowbar, who did his best Gordon Solie impression. Soon the
interview was interrupted when Big Vito and Johnny the Bull attacked.
WCW World Tag Team Title Match
Bensonhurst Street Fight
The Mamalukes with Disco Inferno d. David Flair and Crowbar with Daffney
The fight quickly took to the outside as Flair and Crowbar backdropped
Vito into a snow bank. Once into the arena, Disco Inferno joined the
announcers at the table as the two teams fought in and out of the ring.
Miss Hancock from Standards and Practices came to ringside to take
notes. Tables, chairs, road cones, etc. were introduced into the match,
and used frequently. As Crowbar attempted a dive off the top, Disco
pushed his leg off the ropes. Big Vito put Crowbar on a table in the
ring and, after climbing to the top himself, splashed him through the
table, scoring the three-count.
Backstage, Brian Knobs showed up with a handful of money, asking Jarrett
to book Fit Finlay in a match against The Total Package.
No Contest: Booker T vs. Big T
Booker T made his way to the ring, ready for a battle. Halfway down, his
music stopped. J Biggs came to the ramp and told Booker that the music
was property of Harlem Heat, who now consisted of Stevie Ray and Big T.
Biggs then said they had some new music for Booker, proceeding to play a
cheesy rock instrumental. As if that wasn't bad enough, Booker was told
that the T in his name and the flames on his pants were also property of
Harlem Heat. As Biggs continued his tirade, Midnight grabbed him and
threw him in to Booker, who laid him out. The New Harlem Heat came in,
dropping Booker and Midnight to the ground.
Backstage, Norman Smiley was confronted by 3 Count, who attacked Smiley
until he ran away, screaming down the hall.
Backstage, Jeff Jarrett told Fit Finlay of Knobs' plan. Jeff said he was
booking Knobs against Package, and that Fit would be the referee. In
another dressing room watching on a monitor, Knobs went nuts, throwing
chairs around the room.
Backstage, Norman found The Demon's casket to hide in. As he stepped
inside, it started to close, and Norman screamed on.
Billy Kidman with Torrie Wilson d. The Wall
The Wall charged into the ring after Kidman, but the youngster stepped
aside, sending the big man crashing into the corner. Soon however, The
Wall's power overtook Kidman, and Billy was in trouble. Kidman threw a
dropkick from the top rope and followed it up with a huracanrana. The
Wall stopped the momentum and, as he went for his patented chokeslam,
Vampiro came out and delivered a leg lariat from the top turnbuckle, as
Torrie distracted the referee. Three seconds later, Billy Kidman was the
Interview: Ric Flair
The Nature Boy styled and profiled to the ring as only he can do. He
named off every pro and college team in the area, said to put them all
together, and that still didn't equal Ric Flair. Flair said he was
asked to be the commissioner, but turned it down. He stated Terry Funk
must have some misconceptions and wanted Funk out to the ring to
straighten things out. Funk came out, calling Flair a "banana-nosed,
horse-tooth goof." He said Ric was jealous of him and said he should get
some control of his son, David. The Nature Boy told Funk he has been
from Starrcade to WrestleMania back to Starrcade, becoming the 14-time
champion. As the Funker entered the ring, he and Flair immediately came
to blows with WCW security quickly breaking up the ruckus.
Backstage, Jeff Jarrett said it was now clear who Sid's tag team
partners would be - Funk and Flair.
Interview: Sid Vicious
As Mean Gene told Sid who his partners were for later in the night,
Vicious said he didn't care who it was... someone was getting
powerbombed straight to hell.
Backstage, Miss Hancock asked Standards and Practices why they weren't
wearing their suits again. S&P told her that WCW just dressed them up to
get her over, and they were going to try to get their names back.
Backstage, The Total Package and Elizabeth were shown walking down the
hall, toward the ring.
No Contest: The Total Package with Elizabeth vs. Brian Knobs
Fit Finlay served as the special referee for the match. The Hardcore
Champion went right to work against Package, bringing him to the floor
and sending him back first into the guardrail. Back inside, Finlay
nailed Knobs as he was coming in, swaying the advantage in the direction
of The Total Package. As Knobs went to the second rope for a dive,
Finlay stood in his way, allowing Elizabeth to come from behind and lay
Brian out with the baseball bat. Fit left the ring as Package destroyed
Knobs' arm in the steel chair.
Backstage, Norman Smiley came out of the Demon casket, dressed in KISS
Backstage, The Demon told police where his gear was hanging when it was
"Screamin" Norman Smiley d. Shane Helms
Norman came to the ring, donned in his full Demon garb. Helms delivered
a frogsplash early, but Screamin Demon kicked out. Shane applied an
airplane spin, to which Norman retaliated with a giant swing. Smiley
nailed both Karagias and Moore off the apron and won the bout with the
Norman Conquest. After the match, The Demon and Wilkes-Barre's finest
came out to confront Smiley, who took off into the crowd, with Demon hot
on his heels.
Interview: DDP and Kimberly
As Mean Gene talked with Kim and Dallas, The Mamalukes and Disco came
down the hallway, with Big Vito pinching the rear end of Kimberly. As
she turned around, Disco was standing there and was slapped for the
pinch. DDP attacked Inferno, starting a brawl throughout the backstage
area and out into the crowd.
Diamond Dallas Page with Kimberly d. Disco Inferno
The fight finally made its way into the ring and Disco took control with
a swinging neckbreaker. He pounded Page around the ring, kicking him
into the corner. When Disco decided it was time to dance for Kim, DDP
decided it was time for some revenge. A Diamond Cutter later, and
Diamond Dallas Page took the win over Inferno.
Jeff Jarrett and The Harris Boys d. Sid Vicious, Terry Funk and Ric
This pier six brawl started outside the ring and remained for some time.
Only one problem, Ric Flair didn't come out for the match, making it a
three-on-two advantage for the nWo. Sid didn't let that stop him as he
pounded on Ron Harris in the corner. Vicious attempted to powerbomb
Jarrett, but one of the Harris boys quickly broke it up. The nWo trapped
Funk on their side of the ring, beating on him relentlessly. The Funker
fought back against the evil trio, finally making the tag to big Sid.
Flair made his way to ringside, only to grab Funk, running him into the
broadcast area. As the referee tried to get Flair and Funk under
control, Jarrett brought in his sweet six string, drilling it over the
head of the WCW Champion, and gaining the pinfall win for the nWo.

>> RAW IS WAR REPORTBy WWF.COM
Less than a week away from No Mercy, RAW began live from the Joe Louis
Arena in Detroit, MI, the very same arena that saw Rikishi run over
Stone Cold Steve Austin one year ago!
Intercontinental Champion Eddie Guerrero came to the ring to address his
situation with a number of World Wrestling Federation Superstars. He
said he was tired of Chyna's moaning and crying, and that she was a
whimpering pain in the ass! Then, Guerrero told Mr. Ass he would find
his right foot kicking his ass, just like what would happen to Chyna if
she came begging for forgiveness! Eddie ended his tirade by yelling at
Mick Foley about his poor skills as Commissioner, and he said that he
would take on anyone Mick wanted him to face! Immediately, Chris Jericho
rocked the arena and challenged Guerrero to his Intercontinental Title!
After the match began it looked as if Guerrero injured his leg, and the
referee called for the bell. As Jericho stood over the fallen Guerrero,
X-Pac ran out and attacked Y2J! As X-Pac celebrated, Mr. Ass came out to
get him some of X-Pac! After a Fame-Asser, Jericho and Mr. Ass watched
as X-Pac and Guerrero retreated to the back.
A limousine pulled up with in the parking lot, and Kurt Angle eagerly
greeted it. His new business partner Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley got out,
and told Kurt to grab her bags, which he eagerly did!
Earlier on Monday, Jonathan Coachman sat down and interviewed Rikishi on
his thoughts about why he ran over Stone Cold.
Immediately, Rikishi said that his admission of his crime has been
positive. He said that his people are proud that he stood up to make a
change. When Coach told Rikishi that The Rock wasn't proud, the Phat Man
said that The Rock seemed confused; that deep inside, Rock was happy
with what he had done because they are family. Rikishi expressed no
remorse at all - he meant what he did. In the past, his people were held
back and he didn't want to see it happen again. Rikishi said he doesn't
care one bit about Stone Cold, and that he would crush Austin at No
In a match set up on HEAT, T&A took on the very angry Acolytes. The
match was a slobberknocker, with both physical teams brutalizing each
other. Test threw punch after punch at Faarooq and Bradshaw hammered on
Albert. The beating finally stopped when Trish got up on the ring apron,
distracting Bradshaw. Faarooq saved his partner and Bradshaw pinned
Albert after a clothesline from hell.
In the McMahon-Helmsley locker room, Triple H asked Stephanie why she
was still assisting Angle. She said that when they had talked about it
at home, she told Hunter she'd reconsider - like he told her he would
do. But since he won't, she would continue to help Kurt. The Game asked
what would happen if she was hurt. Steph just told him that it was a
chance they'd have to take. The Game said he wouldn't be able to control
himself if she got hurt somehow, and he walked away.
Kurt came in and Stephanie guaranteed Kurt would win the title at No
Mercy. The Game came back in and asked Stephanie to leave!
In a European Title match, goodwill Ambassador William Regal took on
Champion Al Snow, who was representing the United Kingdom, complete with
a portrait of Regal! Regal, in great condition, took Snow from rope to
rope. After Al missed a moonsault, Regal locked him in a submission
hold, forcing Snow to tap out! William Regal waved graciously to the
crowd as he accepted his new European Title!
In his locker room, Triple H told Kurt that Stephanie was his
responsibility - if she got hurt, it was Kurt's fault. Secondly, Triple
H said, if Angle tried to make it anything other than a business
relationship, it would be the last thing he ever did! Angle said okay,
but smirked as the Game walked away!
As Triple H was set to battle Kane, Chris Benoit came out to offer guest
commentary. His entrance distracted the Game, who was immediately
hammered by Kane. As Triple H was getting brutalized, Stephanie, who was
watching in the back, told Kurt she needed to help Hunter because she
knew Benoit would interfere. Before she could leave, Angle convinced her
to stay in the back.
In the ring, Kane continued to beat on Triple H. But after being down
for most of the match, the Game came back and started throwing punches
at the Big Red Machine. While Kane lie prone, Triple H went and attacked
Benoit at the announce table!
Then, Hunter gave Kane a Pedigree, only to get nailed by Benoit with a
chair! After getting Triple H back in the ring, Benoit locked him in the
Crossface, which the Game immediately tapped out of!
Michael Cole introduced Stone Cold Steve Austin, who came out to a
rousing ovation from the Detroit crowd. Cole then asked Austin how he
felt returning to the scene of where he was hit by Rikishi, and Stone
Cold said he was happy to be there, but upset because he couldn't whoop
Rikishi's ass right then! Austin said he had Rikishi's picture
everywhere, and every time he saw that picture, he was looking at a dead
man! Cole asked Austin what he was going to do to him at No Mercy, and
Austin said he was going to stomp a mud hole in Rikishi's huge ass, no
matter how long it took!
Rikishi interrupted from the parking lot - from the very spot he hit
Austin! Then he said he may not be allowed in the ring, but he called
Austin out to the back! Austin ran out to confront Rikishi, where he
tried to run over Stone Cold again! As he drove away, Rikishi smiled and
said that on Sunday, there would be No Mercy!
X-Pac came out to the middle of the ring and called out Mr. Ass! When
Mr. Ass came out, he laughed at X-Pac, only to be hit from behind by
Eddie Guerrero, who had a huge wrap on his leg! As X-Pac beat on Mr.
Ass, Chris Jericho ran out and started pounding on X-Pac with fists and
a steel chair! Finally, the referees were able to restrain Y2J!
Mr. Ass ran in to Commissioner Foley's office and demanded a piece of
Eddie Guerrero. Foley replied by making a match for Mr. Ass against
Eddie Guerrero at No Mercy!
The Dudley Boyz took on Los Conquistadors, who J.R. said reminded him a
lot of Edge and Christian. The match was surprisingly even, with the
mysterious men in gold really taking it to the Dudley Boyz. After D-Von
testified with a flying headbutt to the groin of one of the
Conquistadors, Buh Buh called for a table! Before the table came out,
one of the Conquistadors hit Buh Buh from behind and rolled him up for
The Road Dogg faced Right to Censor member Mr. Val Venis in a physical
affair. The D-O-Double G really took it to Venis, but Val came back and
started stomping on Road Dogg with his white shoes. After being locked
in several submission holds, the Dogg came back and beat Mr. Venis when
Naked Mideon ran out and distracted Val, allowing the Dogg to get the
pin! Mideon even helped the Dogg out and laid out Mr. Steven Richards!
Stephanie pounded on Kurt Angle's locker room door, telling him he
wasn't focused. Angle looked overwhelmed and sighed deeply when
Stephanie kept telling him he needed to focus more so he could beat The
Stephanie then introduced next Sunday's HEAT host, the man who will
interview The Rock and then beat him for the Federation Title, her new
business associate, Kurt Angle!
Angle said it was that the Joe Louis arena was famous, but not because
it was where Stone Cold was ran down, but because it is the arena that
Kurt Angle made his debut in! Stephanie said she would lead Kurt to the
title, just like she led her husband there! Then Kurt went to the ring,
where he would team with Edge and Christian against the Hardy Boyz and
The three-way tag team main event was action-packed. The Rock came out
with his fists flying, nailing Edge and Christian and begging Kurt Angle
to get into the ring. Angle got the tag and pummeled The Rock, as Triple
H watch on from his locker room. As The Rock continued to be held back
from making the tag, Edge came in and mocked the Hardys! The Rock was
finally able to make the tag, and Matt Hardy entered the fracas and took
out both Edge and Christian, even nearly pinning Edge! Again, Angle got
the tag and had several near-falls on the isolated Matt Hardy. After
recovering from some severe blows, Matt was able to tag in The Rock! The
Rock was a house on fire, and had Angle pinned, but the referee was
distracted by the Hardys and Lita fighting Edge and Christian on the
outside of the ring. When the ref turned around to make the count,
Stephanie pulled The Rock's leg, ending the count. Then, Jeff Hardy went
to hit Angle with a Swanton Bomb, but Stephanie hit him in the knee
before he could! Lita saw what she did, but Stephanie took the Women's
Champions and slammed her into the ring stairs!
When all was said and done, Kurt Angle pinned The Rock for the win, with
a lot of help from his partner Stephanie! The two celebrated as RAW went
off the air!

Mark Jindrak and Sean O'Haire d. The Boogie Knights
The show started out with a match for the WCW World Tag Team Titles.
DISQO and Wright talked smack on the mic before the action got underway.
The challengers came out strong, sending their bigger opponents around
the ring with quick, double-teaming maneuvers. After the patented double
leapfrog, Jindrak and O'Haire took over on DISQO, with Jindrak bringing
the Knight off the top with a huge Frankensteiner. Mickey Jay was
knocked to the canvas as DISQO delivered the Chartbuster. Kronik ran in

little overzealous and booked a match with Kevin Nash against Sting.
Miller went one step further and made it a Lumberjack Match.
Team Canada with Major Gunns d. Lieutenant Loco, Sgt. A-WALL, and
Storm said the country of Australia was wearing thin on his nerves. He
demanded that the Canadian national anthem play, but it was interrupted
by the music of The MIA. A-WALL, Cajun, and Loco came to the ring, but
conspicuous by his absence was their leader, General Rection. As the
match got underway, Rection ran in from the crowd, pulling Storm off the
apron to brawl, before WCW officials took the General to the back. Loco
made a hot tag with A-WALL, who cleaned house on the entire Team Canada.
With Loco back in, the Canadians once again gained the advantage. All
six men hit the ring, with Duggan and A-WALL fighting up the aisle.
Prime Time was put through a table on the outside. Major Gunns slid a
chair into Cajun, but it backfired as it was dropkicked into his face.
In the end, Storm took the win for his team after applying the single
No Contest - "The Franchise" Shane Douglas with Torrie Wilson vs. The
Douglas bragged to the crowd that the United States defeated the
Australians in every event in the Olympics. He challenged Konnan and the
rest of The Animals to come to the ring for a handicapped match. The
Filthy Animals came out and accepted, with Konnan promising to show
Torrie what a real man was all about. In the ring, The Animals
brutalized Shane as Tygress and Rey gave him a dual "face full of
stuff". The Franchise pulled out mace and sprayed Konnan and Mysterio in
the eyes before he and Torrie ran Tygress into the metal guardrail. With
Konnan handcuffed to the ropes, Rey was destroyed, with only Charles
Robinson there to try and cover him from more punishment.
Backstage, as Palumbo and Stasiak argued about their loss to Goldberg
last week, Kevin Nash arrived, telling them to shake hands and get over
Backstage, Billy Kidman arrived and helped the medics load Rey Mysterio
into an ambulance.
"That 70's Guy" Mike Awesome and Crowbar d. The Perfect Event
Big Sexy sat down with the announcers to add color to the commentary.
Crowbar and Awesome worked over Palumbo early, squashing him with a
moonsault and big splash combo for a near fall. That 70's Guy took to
the air with a dive over the ropes to the outside, bringing Stasiak and
Palumbo to the floor. Crowbar was in trouble as the Perfect Event
doubled on him on their side of the ring. "Perfectshawn" delivered a
superplex off the top turnbuckle on Awesome, but dropped the ball as he
hit Palumbo on accident after Mike ducked a punch. Awesome got the
pinfall on Stasiak for the win, prompting "Coach" Nash to enter the
ring. He forced his two men to hug in the ring, even though they were
hot at each other.
Backstage, Shane Douglas challenged Booker T to a match for later in the
show. Torrie called Pamela a bitch before walking away, to which Pam
replied that it "took one to know one."
Backstage, David Flair asked Mike Sanders to book him in a DNA Match
against Buff Bagwell. Sanders said he would at Havoc, but told Flair
that he had a different job for him later in the show.
Kwee Wee with Paisley d. Johnny The Bull

out with a monkey flip. The Bull seemed to have injured his ankle on the
move, giving Kwee Wee the opportunity to cover and score the quick win.
Interview: The Cat
Miller came out and immediately told Mark Madden that he "hated his fat
ass." The commissioner and Ms. Jones proceeded to dance all over the
ring, before Miller called for the music to stop. He called Mike Sanders
to the ring, saying that they needed to put an end to the "dual
commissioners." Sanders said that he would not fight The Cat on Nitro,
but would face him for the commissioner's job at Halloween Havoc. After
an exchange of insults, Kronik came out to take out The Cat. Goldberg's
music played, and as Adams and Clark turned around on the stage to face
him, he came through the crowd and headed into the ring. Goldberg told
Kronik that they were both "next."
WCW World Title Match
Booker T d. "The Franchise" Shane Douglas with Torrie Wilson
Scott Steiner joined the announcers at ringside, putting Torrie Wilson
down. Backstage, Konnan told Tygress to wait in the back, as he had
something to take care of. Booker started off on the offense, dropping
Douglas to the mat twice with two big sidekicks. T brought Shane to the
outside, but was reversed on a whip to the guardrail, slamming into it
himself. Douglas focused on the upper body and neck of Booker, slowing
the champion down. Booker fired back with a scissors kick, a sidekick,
and a spinarooni. Kidman came out and grabbed Douglas, but was knocked
off the apron and into Midajah at ringside. Steiner took exception and
blasted Kidman from behind. Konnan and Jarrett joined the brawl outside
the ring, as Booker hit the Bookend for the win over Douglas.
Pamela Paulshock Interview: Scott Steiner with Midajah and Jeff Jarrett
Midajah berated Billy Kidman in a different language, as Steiner echoed
her sentiments in English. Big Poppa told Kidman that he would pay for
running into Midajah. Jeff Jarrett told Konnan that he would put him in
the hospital next to Mysterio.
Goldberg d. David Flair
The Nature Boy Ric Flair joined the commentators at ringside, as David
awaited his opponent. Goldberg's music played, and the mystery was over.
The young Flair jumped Bill from behind, but was immediately speared to
the canvas. One Jackhammer for the road, and the streak continued. After
Goldberg left the ring, Flair got up to help his son.
Pamela Paulshock Interview: Billy Kidman and Konnan
Kidman said he would take the challenge from Steiner. Konnan told
Jarrett that he was going to take out his anger for Douglas on The
"Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner with Midajah d. Billy Kidman
Big Poppa beat up an Australian fan at ringside before locking up with
Kidman. Steiner used his power to his advantage, whipping Billy hard
from corner to corner. After delivering a Samoan drop from the top rope,
the Steiner Recliner was all that was needed to give Scott Steiner
another check in the win column.
"The Chosen One" Jeff Jarrett d. Konnan with Tygress
As Konnan went through his pre match ritual on the mic, Jarrett
attacked, getting this challenge match underway. The Chosen One brought
a chair across Konnan's back several times on the outside, before
heading back in. Tygress set up to deliver a "face full of stuff" on
Jarrett, but Douglas came out and grabbed her by the hair. She slapped
Torrie and Shane across the face, before getting blasted by Jarrett's
guitar after Konnan ducked out of the way from Jeff's attack. The Chosen
One brought K-Dogg down with The Stroke to get the 1-2-3. Jarrett
applied the Scorpion Deathlock after the match in yet another attempt to
get under Sting's skin.
A clip was shown of Kevin Nash's visit to one of Australia's brewing
companies. At the end of the day, the higher ups designed Big Sexy his
very own Bottle label for "Big Sexxxxy Brew."
"Big Sexy" Kevin Nash d. Sting
Nash backed Sting into the corner on the first lockup, delivering a
series of big knees and elbows. The Stinger slid down the back of Nash
on a bodyslam attempt, throwing some heavy punches to the head of the
"coach." Sting was able to turn Nash over in the Scorpion Deathlock, but
The Natural Born Thrillers pulled their mentor to the ropes for the
break. On a splash attempt, Sting was caught with a huge boot to the
face, swinging the match back into Big Sexy's hands. Scott Steiner ran
to ringside and jumped on Booker T, prompting the entire locker room to
brawl from ringside to the back. Charles Robinson was knocked down in
the ring, as Jeff Jarrett snuck up to ringside with his guitar. When
Sting ran in for another splash, Nash ducked and Jeff took the
six-stringer over The Stinger's head. Big Sexy fell on top of Sting just
as Robinson awoke to count the tainted three-count.
