Vinny Mac is back!
Last Thursday on Smackdown, HHH called out Vince McMahon for a chance
at the World Wrestling Federation Championship. At first Vince refused
saying that he was no longer affiliated with WWF business but after
numerous derogatory comments about Vince's wife he could hold back no
longer. The match was on.
A chair shot to the head of Vince drew blood, but with help from arch-rival
Stone Cold Steve Austin, Vince got the three count and came out with the
belt. But for how long?
On Monday night, WWF Raw was led off by the newly crowned champion,
Vince McMahon, coming down to ringside. After telling the world that he no
longer plans to hold on to the belt, Vince told everyone that the winner of
the "Six Pack" match at Unforgiven would be crowned the
Then the sound of breaking glass was heard throughout the arena. Austin
obviously had different plans. Stone Cold told Vince to insert him into the
match since McMahon dropped out. HHH wasn't too keen on the idea and made
his way out also. Helmsley wanted the slot himself but Vince told both men
that he no longer had the authority to sign these matches since he had no
control of the company.
Austin reminded Vince that the only person who could reinstate him in the
WWF was Austin himself. Stone Cold told Vince that he'd let him back in if
he grants him the title shot that he deserves. Austin was granted his title
shot by Vince but not at Unforgiven. McMahon told HHH that he would
be the sixth man in the "Six Pack" match against Kane, Undertaker, Big
Show, Mankind and the Rock. The winner of this match would meet Austin for
In other matches, The Rock and Mankind teamed back up and challenged the
tag team champions, The Undertaker and Big Show, to a title match. They
accepted but said it was to be fought under "dark side" rules. What The
Rock and Mankind didn't know was that these "rules" were that anyone that
believed in the dark side was able to fight in this match. It ended up with
Mideon, Viscera and the Big Show against Rock and Mankind. It didn't phase
either Rock or Mankind as they overcame the odds and won back the belts,
after Kane came in and cleared out the "dark side."
In the main event, Shane and his father Vince McMahon were to face off
against HHH and Chyna. With Vince somehow being locked in his dressing
room, Shane teamed up with future brother-in-law Test. It was a fairly good
fight until HHH decided he'd lose his temper and knock out the ref. A
couple of low blows and Pedigrees later, HHH cleared out Test and Shane. On
his way up the ramp in celebration, Vince made his way out and knocked out
HHH with a chair.
In WCW, the main event featured Ric Flair, a 76 year old man, against
Diamond Dallas Page. Or maybe the main event was Sting against Chris
Benoit. Or maybe it was Goldberg versus Bryan Knobs. It's hard to tell
because they're all so good. Flair won even though Page dominated. Sting
held onto his belt by beating Benoit. Goldberg, well, I think you can guess
what he did.
There were two good things that actually did happen Monday night in the
WCW. Yes, that's right, good things. Goldberg went back to his old music
and Big Poppa Pump, aka Scott Steiner, made his return. Other than that the
WCW was at it's usual no-name, no-attitude, no-fun ways filling up the
longest three hours in my life. I didn't fall asleep this time, however.
That makes the show a success.
Rumor Mill--Chyna is coming out with a video of her own called, Dude
Looks Like a Lady. This will be her second video with the first being
Chris Jericho is rumored to do more than beat Ken Shamrock at this Sunday's
pay-per-view. Rumors are floating around that Jericho will "severely
injure" Shamrock, therefore letting Shamrock have some time off to get
ready for the Ultimate Fighting Championships.
Rock, Mankind regain tag team belts
