That's right. This pay-per-view is Souled Out. With some WCW guys still left on the roster, I needed to have a PPV in their honor. Like I said, there will be no title matches. Foley, Show and Angle are the newest members of the WCW roster.

Match 1. JBL vs. Chris Benoit
JBL hit a back suplex on Benoit. Chris came back and hit a snap German suplex in return. Benoit clotheslined JBL over the top rope. He then hit the Three Amigos and put him in the Crossface. Bradshaw was going for the powerbomb but Benoit rolled out. Benoit went to capitalize, but JBL caught him in a school boy and won.

Match 2. Extreme Rules - Foley vs. Flair
These two men literally hate each other. So, I put them in a match where they can exude the most pain on each other. Foley fell to the outside. He grabbed a garbage can and began chasing Flair. Later, Flair pulled a ladder out from under the ring. More weapons were added to the match. Foley locked in the Mandible Claw to win.

Match 3. RVD vs. Lesnar
Holly walked down to the ring holding a chair. Lesnar hit the F5 but RVD kicked out at 1. RVD hit the 5-Star Frog Splash but Holly distracted the ref from counting. Brock hit another F5 but RVD rolled out of the ring. RVD reversed Lesnar's two attempts at a back breaker. RVD missed a springboard splash and Lesnar capitalized for the win.

Match 4. Chavo vs. Ultimo vs. Jericho vs. Rey
Again, this is a non-title match. Chavo hit Jericho with a tilt-a-whirl back breaker. Ultimo was taking a break outside the ring. Jericho returned the favor with a snap suplex. Rey hit Chavo with an unorthodox sunset flip and got the 3 count.

Match 5. WWE vs. WCW - Kane, Triple H and Test vs. Show, Scott Hall and Warrior
Once enemies, Hall and Warrior are teaming up for the greater good against WWE tonight. This is not an elimination match; one fall to a finish. Hall and Triple H were the legal men. They looked like they didn't want to face each other. They eventually did as Triple H hit him with the Pedigree. All 6 men got involved throughout the match. Triple H hit a Pedigree on Show and got the win.

After the match, Test and Kane shook hands. It looks like they are an official team.

Main Event. Undertaker vs. Stone Cold
Sting attacked Austin on his way to the ring. Austin reversed Taker's back breaker and hit the Stone Cold Stunner. Austin was going for another Stunner but Taker pushed him away. He turned Austin around and hit him with the Tombstone. Taker pinned him and won.

After the match, Triple H, Angle and X-Pac came out. HHH signaled that he wants Taker's title.

Recap: That may have been the longest 6-man tag ever. Survivor Series is going to be a good PPV.

One match that never happened. Rock hit Bret with a Samoan drop. Edge ran down to the ring. Rock hit Bret with the spine buster and Rock Bottom. Edge just stood there, not attacking either man. He eventually left without doing any harm. Bret put Rock in the Sharpshooter and he immediately tapped.

After the match, Angle continued the attack on Nash outside the ring. He crushed Nash's skull between his boot and the steel post.

Road Dogg attacked Hall on his way to the ring. First Mr. Ass, now Road Dogg. It looks like Dogg turned to Gunn's point of view. Warrior hit a running powerslam on The Bad Guy. Warrior then hit a running shoulder tackle and the military press for the 3 count.

After the match, Road Dogg entered the ring and attacked Hall. Warrior turned around and made the save.

Recap: What are the WWE Superstars doing on Nitro? Nothing else news worthy to report.

Recap: Hernandez on Raw?! Two WWE Superstars fought on Nitro. All hell has broken loose this week.


This is one of my surprise PPVs this month.

Match 1. Falls Count Anywhere - nWo vs. New Age Outlaws  WCW Tag Team Championship
What would happen if the Outlaws capture the WCW Tag Titles? Scott Hall grabbed a chair. Nash hit the Jackknife on Road Dogg on the chair. Hall then hit the Outsider's Edge on Dogg. Mr. Ass hit a military press as Dogg reversed a second Jackknife. Nash hit the Jackknife on Mr. Ass and scored the pin.

Match 2. Extreme Rules - Rikishi vs. Holly vs. RVD vs. Big Show  Hardcore and European Titles
The winner will unify these two titles and be solely the Hardcore Champion. For a moment, Holly and RVD teamed up and hit a double dropkick on Rikishi. Holly then hit Rikishi with the Falcon Arrow. Show hit Rikishi with the Showstopper and knocked him out.

Match 3. Ladder - Christian vs. Ultimo Dragon  Light Heavyweight and Cruiserweight Titles
This is another unification match. Both men climbed the ladder early. Christian hit Ultimo with a sunset flip off the ladder. Christian then hit him with a tornado DDT and busted him wide open. Later, both men were on the ladder again. Ultimo hit a modified RKO from the top. He climbed back up and pulled down both titles.

Match 4. 6-pack Challenge - Rock vs. Austin vs. Triple H vs. DDP vs. Goldberg vs. Sting
These six men are, in my opinion, six of the top 20 Superstars in modern wrestling times (1996-now). Austin was the first eliminated as Rock flipped him over the top. Sting was busted open from Triple H's knee smash. Rock pushed HHH out of the ring. Rock then tossed out DDP for his third elimination. Goldberg was on the apron and Sting punched him off. Rock then eliminated Sting. He took out 4 of his 5 opponents.

Match 5. Cage - Steiner vs. Warrior  WCW Championship
Both men went at it during the early part of the match. Neither man was able to build momentum. Steiner hit his overhead belly-to-belly. He then hit a German suplex and began climbing. Warrior pulled him down and then received a back suplex. Steiner went to escape again but Warrior brought him back in. Steiner hit Warrior with a pinning belly-to-belly and retained his title.

Main Event. Last Man Standing - Angle vs. Undertaker  WWF Championship
This match is going to be brutal. I'm guessing it will go 15 minutes. About a minute into the match, JBL ran down and attacked both men. Taker hit Angle with two fall away slams. About two minutes later, he hit the Last Ride. Angle was able to hit the Angle Slam. Taker wasn't affected as he hit a Tombstone to win. The match lasted 5:59. I was way off.

After the match, Angle low blowed Taker.

Recap: I was looking forward to seeing both tag titles with WWE teams. The cage match was really good. The LMS match was too short.

October Week 1, Year 2

Match 1. RVD vs. Rey Mysterio
RVD is making is first appearance on Raw. Rey is back on Raw for one night only. About four minutes into the match, Rey hit a Lous Thesz Press. RVD hit a heel kick and the 5-star Frog Splash. RVD then hit a belly-to-belly suplex which led to a pin and won.

Match 2. Angle and Mr. Ass w/ Triple H vs. Jeff and ??? JBL
This is an odd pairing of Angle, Gunn and Triple H. Angle and Triple H were partners, then enemies and now it seems like they are on the same page again. JBL is Hardy's partner! JBL was brought to the outside and went after Triple H. Mr. Ass hit the Fame-Asser on JBL but only a 2 count. Triple H distracted the ref on multiple occasions.

After the match, Austin was taking out of the arena on a stretcher. Sting wouldn't let that happen as he continued the attack.

Main Event. Test vs. Foley
Ken Shamrock ran down to the ring. Test was asking for a double team on Foley but Shamrock turned on Test. Foley grabbed a chair but it backfired as Test used it against him. That turned Foley on as he destroyed Test. Foley hit a Russian leg sweep on the chair and won.

After the match, Foley stuck his hand out and Test accepted the hand shake.

Match 1. Goldberg vs. Steiner
The champ vs. former champ. Steiner hit a German suplex. Sting ran down to the ring and hit Goldberg with the Scorpion Death Drop. Goldberg recovered and hit a modified pump handle slam. Steiner hit his finishing belly-to-belly and won.

Match 2. Lesnar vs. Hogan
What?! Brock Lesnar is on WCW Nitro! Why is he facing Hogan? Hogan mounted Lesnar and hit him with a couple of left hands that busted open. Lesnar was getting his ass kicked so he grabbed a chair. Jericho walked down the ramp with a chair. Steiner then ran down. Jericho hit Hogan over the head. Lesnar hit the F5 and won.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Vader
It started out as a vicious back and forth match. Jericho hit the Codebreaker after receiving a belly-to-belly. He then hit a high-angle suplex. Vader fought back and hit an intense German suplex. Vader hit the highest moonsault ever and won.

Main Event. Scott Hall vs. Kevin Nash vs. Warrior  #1 Contender's Match
All three men were going at it. They all wanted to become the #1 contender. Warrior brought a chair into the ring to make things interesting. Scott Hall ended up bleeding after having his face smashed on a turnbuckle. Hall hit the Outsider's Edge on Nash. Nash won by knocked Warrior out with a big boot.

After the match, Angle ran down and hit Nash with the WWF Title.

After the match, Mr. Ass and Triple H came in and stomped all over Jeff. They then hit him with a chair.

Match 3. Stone Cold vs. Holly
Sting walked out and sat with the announcers. Stone Cold hit his powerbomb. Austin then hit a Stunner, but Holly rolled out of the ring. Holly grabbed a chair and hit Austin multiple times. Holly hit a delayed suplex. Austin reversed him and hit another Stunner. Again, Holly rolled out. He came back in, hit the Falcon Arrow and won.

After the match, Jericho was leaving but Vader stopped him and kicked his head against the ring post.

Main Event. Iron Man - Scott Hall vs. Scott Steiner
It's the battle of the Scotts here. I'll only be documenting the points scored. 5 minutes in and no points were scored. Hall hit the Outsider's Edge at 9:40 to score the first point. Steiner tied it up a minute later with a belly-to-belly. Hall hit another Outsider's Edge to go up 2-1 with 4:30 left. He hit another one 15 seconds later. Hall hit a front slam to extend his lead. Steiner scored his second point with 50 seconds left. The match ended 4-2 Scott Hall.

After the match, Mr. Ass attacked Hall with a lead pipe.

Recap: Angle, Mr. Ass and HHH as a team? The iron man match was really entertaining. 

Sunday, April 22, 2012


Before the pay-per-view begins, I have more roster news. Vader and Buff Bagwell have been released from the WCW roster. I am editing the roster to make sure every match is a title match.

Match 1. Extreme Rules - Rikishi vs. RVD vs. Foley  Hardcore Championship
We saw RVD on WCW in a losing effort against Sting. RVD brought in the first weapon - a crutch. Rikishi added to it with a chair. Rikishi hit a sit out powerbomb on The Whole F'n Show. Foley hit the double-arm DDT and Rikishi went for a pin. Rikishi hit RVD with the Rikishi Driver to retain.

Match 2. Table - New Age Outlaws vs. Hardys  WWF Tag Team Championship
Two of the best tag teams in all of pro wrestling. There are tables surrounding all four sides of the ring. As if the tables weren't enough, a chair was laying in the middle of the ring. Jeff hit the Twist of Fate and then the Whisper in the Wind on Mr. Ass. Jeff is on fire! He hit the Swanton Bomb on Dogg. Matt set up a table and Jeff slammed Mr. Ass through it to win the titles.
Match 3. Ladder - Chris Jericho vs. ??? Macho Man  United States Championship
Jericho issued an open challenge with his US Title on the line. Savage is the lucky one! He gets another shot at the US Title. Each man brought in a ladder. Jericho hit Savage with a suplex from the ladder. Later, Savage hit one in return. Jericho put him in the Walls of Jericho. He tapped, but this is a ladder match. Savage received a chair shot and began bleeding. After about 10 minutes of neither man climbing a ladder, Jericho pulled down his title to retain.
Match 4. nWo vs. 4 Horsemen  WCW Tag Team Championship
Benoit and Nash start the match, but Hall was quickly tagged in. Benoit and Malenko were double teaming Nash outside the ring. After receiving a long beating, Hall tagged in Nash. Benoit hit the Three Amigos. Nash hit the Jackknife on Malenko but instead of going for the pin, he brought in the steps. Malenko reversed the second Jackknife. Benoit had Nash in the Crossface but he broke out. Nash hit a swinging neck breaker on Benoit and won.

Match 5. Hell in a Cell - Taker vs. Angle vs. Triple H  WWF Championship
Since both men won #1 contender's matches, they are both getting a title shot. All three men got their shots in. Taker hit Triple H with a Tombstone. Angle then hit HHH with three German suplexes and then an Angle Slam. Taker was going for a chokeslam but Triple H reversed it. Triple H hit Angle with the Pedigree. After the finishers, it went back to a grapple fest. After another round of finishers, Angle knocked Triple H out with the Angle Slam.

Main Event. Cage - Goldberg vs. Steiner  WCW Championship
I'm hoping that Goldberg retains. He hit Steiner with a military press. Steiner returned the favor with a running power slam. Steiner was climbing the cage and Goldberg went to bring him down twice. Both times Steiner threw him down. He finished climbing and won the belt.

Recap: The WWF tag match was really good. The finish was underwhelming. The ladder match took so f'n long. They didn't even attempt to grab the title for about 10 minutes. I thought that the Four Horsemen were going to win the tag titles on multiple occasions. The Hell in the Cell was the greatest AI-fought match I've seen. That was a quick cage match.

September Week 3, Year 2

Besides the default Christian/HBK vs. Clay/Bourne match, the Raw card seems pretty good. We are six days away from Clash of the Champions

Match 1. Christian vs. X-Pac vs. Scotty too Hotty  Light Heavyweight Championship
This may be the first time this title is being defended. It obviously won't be defended at the PPV, so why not now? Chrisitan hit a hurricanrana on Scotty. X-Pac hit the X-Factor but got only a 1 count. Christian's bleeding! It's the first blood sighting in my Universe. Towards the end of the match, there were many pin attempts. Christian retained with a roll-up on Pac.

Match 2. JBL vs. Jeff Hardy
This is a "remarkable match" but I don't know why. Mr. Ass attacked JBL from behind. Jeff immediately brought a chair into the ring. Jeff then got a sledgehammer but JBL knocked him down. He then hit a back breaker. JBL went for the powerbomb but Hardy reversed it. Jeff hit the Twist of Fate and won.

After the match, Angle, Triple H and Mr. Ass were at the top of the ramp staring down Jeff.

Match 3. Sting vs. Austin
Austin was waiting for Sting but he snuck up from behind and clotheslined him. Slowly, Austin was making a comeback. Sting hit a flipping bulldog and busted Stone Cole open. Austin could not recover from that. Sting hit the Scorpion Death Drop to win.

After the match, Sting went to hit Austin with a chair but Holly ran out. Sting left, but Holly hit Austin on the head.

Bubba brought in a chair then a garbage can. Rey hit the 619 on D-Von. I haven't seen the 619 in ages. D-Von hit a running clothesline to Eddie in the corner which knocked him out.

Match 2. Cena vs. Orton vs. Batista vs. Mr. Kennedy
What is going on in WCW? Why are these four on Nitro? Cena and Batista were battling on the outside. Cena hit a belly-to-belly onto a chair. Orton went for an RKO, but Cena pushed him away. Cena hit the FU on Batista. Batista hit the Batista Bomb on Orton but he kicked out at 2. Orton pinned Batista after a DDT.

Y2J was completely dominated Vader in the early going. Vader squashed Jericho in the corner. Jericho wasn't fazed has he hit a bulldog. Hogan ran down to the ring. Jericho hit the Codebreaker on Hogan and then one on Vader. Vader needed some insurance so he grabbed a chair and clocked Y2J two times on the skull. Jericho put the Walls of Jericho on Vader outside the ring. He tapped out.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Nash
Could this be a preview of the PPV match? Steiner was shown in the front row with a ticket. Goldberg brought in a chair and clocked Nash over the head. Nash hit a huge right hand to Goldberg's jaw. Nash went to grab another chair, but Goldberg followed. Nash flipped Goldberg over his head and pinned him.

After the match, Nash was celebrating but Mr. Ass ran down and hit Nash over the head with his tag title.

Recap: I was thinking, Al Snow returned from injury but he's not officially off the "DL". Maybe he got re-injured. Everyone is back but him. I don't mind, I'm just curious. Keep watching this. There are going to be more surprises in the next couple of months. Nash pinned the champ. Mr. Ass is STILL attacking the nWo.

September Week 2, Year 2

Goldust and Steve Blackman have also announced their retirement. I hope them the best in their futures.

Match 1. JBL vs. Farooq
Bradshaw turned heel and with the heel turn came JBL's cockiness. Farooq is looking to get some revenge on his former partner. JBL hit a powerbomb. Farooq hit the Dominator on JBL soon after. Farooq hit a back breaker then a pin but only got a 2 count. JBL hit another powerbomb and the Clothesline from Hell and won.

Later, Austin flipped off Pac and hit a DDT. The match spilled to the outside where Austin hit the Stunner and won.

After the match, Sting came out and attacked Austin with a pipe.

Main Event. Steel Cage - Angle vs. Kane vs. Test  #1 Contender's Match
I will be controlling Test to make sure he doesn't win. I do remember myself controlling HHH and winning a contender's match. Kane was kicking my ass while Angle German suplexed him out of nowhere. Test somehow got on the top rope but Angle pulled him down. He hit the Angle Slam on Kane and began climbing. I, as Test, kept Kane occupied so he didn't pull Angle down.

Match 1. Varsity Club vs. nWo  WCW Tag Team Championship
Hennig and Luger have been on a tear since losing their first match. Varsity Club was dominating the nWo individually but then they began double teaming. Mr. Perfect pinned Hall but Nash broke it up and all four men were going at it. Nash hit two Jackknifes on Luger but he began his comeback. He tagged in Mr. Perfect. Hall pinned Luger in the middle of the ring to retain.

Match 2. Savage vs. Jericho
This is a non-title match. Savage already used his title shot. Jericho tried making Macho Man tap with a sleeper hold but to no avail. Savage clotheslined Jericho over the top to the outside. He hit a sidewalk slam in front of the announcers. Jericho dropped Savage and locked in the Walls of Jericho, but he broke out. Jericho hit the Codebreaker and scored the victory.

After the match, Vader came out and attacked Jericho with a pipe.

Match 3. Warrior vs. Jarrett
If Jarrett loses, then he will be fired. Since Vince controls both brands, he can do what he wants. I hope Double J loses because I have something in store with him in the future. Warrior held Jarrett over his head and dropped him. He pinned him after and won.

After the match, Jarrett raised Warrior's arm in celebration.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Sting
These two were going at it back and forth. Steiner ran down and attacked Sting. Goldberg was shocked. Since the attack, Sting could not recover. He was getting destroyed by Goldberg. The match finally ended with a short-arm clothesline by Goldberg.

After the match, Sting low blowed Goldberg.

Recap: I wonder if HHH and Angle will both challenge for the WWF Title. Jarrett turned face. Too bad he's fired. 

September Week 1, Year 2

Match 1. 6-man Battle Royal - Rock vs. Triple H vs. HBK vs. Show vs. Edge vs. Bradshaw
This is an over the top battle royal. Bradshaw tossed Rock out first. Michaels was eliminated next by Bradshaw. Show tossed out Triple H. Edge was eliminated. Show and Bradshaw remain. Bradshaw and Show could not eliminate each other. Show finally tossed out Bradshaw to win.

Match 2. Sting vs. Stone Cold
Another dream match for Austin. Stone Cold was on his way to the ring when Sting came out from under it and stomped on him. Sting was going for the Scorpion Death Drop but it was reversed. The match finally made its way into the ring and Austin woke up. Sting dropped his elbow across Austin's neck and pinned him.

Edge ran down to the ring and attacked Test. Angle hit two more Angle Slams and pinned Test on the ramp.

Match 1. Varsity Club vs. Eddie and Rey
With Nash in a match each week, I can't put the tag titles on the line. The ref was knocked out. I didn't see how it happened. Eddie went for a chair but he was met by Mr. Perfect. Rey was taking care of Hennig while Eddie went for the chair again. Rey was put in the Torture Rack and he had no choice but to tap.

Match 2. Booker vs. Jarrett
During the commercial, Regal announced his retirement from WCW. Booker hit his spine buster. Jarrett hit the Pedigree. Was that his finisher at one point? He then hit The Stroke, but Booker kicked out at 2.9. Booker brought in two chairs. Jarrett hit another Pedigree and knocked out Booker.

Match 3. Goldberg vs. Nash w/ Steiner
It looks like Nash will only face Goldberg if he has Steiner at his side. Goldberg picked up a chair and took out Nash and Steiner. Nash recovered and hit a chokeslam. Goldberg was thrown out of the ring and Steiner threw him into the turn post. Nash hit the Jackknife and got a 2-count. Nash pinned Goldberg after a running neck breaker.

What?! The Whole Damn Show is on Nitro? Why? There were reversals in the early part of this match. Sting was going for the Scorpion Death Drop but RVD reversed it. RVD hit the Five Star Frog Splash, but Sting got up. Sting hit the Scorpion Death Drop and got the victory.

Recap: Austin and Kane were once enemies but now they are saving each other from the WCW invader. This Taker/Kane match was awesome. So much back and forth. Kane is now a face, ugh. Raw was awesome! 

August Week 4, Year 2

This is the long stretch between PPVs - 5 weeks.

Match 1. 6-man Tag - The Outlaws and X-Pac vs. Hardys and Scotty too Hotty
Scotty and the Hardys worked well as a team. They kept their opponent isolated in their corner. X-Pac hit Scotty with the X-Factor but he kicked out at 2. There were a lot of double team moves. This 20-minute match ended with Mr. Ass hitting Scotty with the Fame-Asser and pinned him.

Match 2. Kane vs. Austin
About a minute into the match, Sting ran down and attacked both men. After the interference, it was a back and forth match. Stone Cold went for the Stunner but Kane pushed him away and hit the chokeslam. Austin kicked out at 2. Kane received a Stunner but was right back up. Out of nowhere he hit the Tombstone. Kane was going for a sidewalk slam, but Austin reversed it into a Russian leg sweep and pinned him to win.

After the match, Sting entered the ring as Austin was leaving. Austin turned around and clotheslined Sting out of the ring.

Match 3. Taker vs. Holly
This is a strange match that Universe booked, but it is champ vs. champ. Holly was in control early as he hit a couple of suplexes. Taker hit a side slam. Holly came back with the Alabama Slam. Holly went for an elbow drop to the outside but Taker moved. Taker won as he knocked Holly out with the Tombstone.

Main Event. Triple H vs. Test  #1 Contender's Match
I will controlling Triple H because the winner will face Taker for the WWF Title. X-Pac made things a little easier as he attacked Test from behind. I was dominating Test for most of the match. He did get some offense because I couldn't reverse. I hit him with the spine buster then the Pedigree to win.

After the match, Triple H grabbed a chair and put it on Test's ankle. Then, HBK's music hit! He ran down to the ring and attacked The Game.

Match 1. Warrior vs. Flair
Warrior hit a back drop. Flair did his patented nut grab. Neither man was willing to lose. Warrior picked Flair up over his head and dropped him. He pinned him right after. This match was all Warrior. Flair looked weak tonight.

Match 2. Regal vs. Bret vs. Chavo
A very unorthodox triple threat. The only thing I don't like about 3-way matches is that the guy not involved in the pin breaks it up. I know that's the point, but the match takes forever. Chavo hit the Gory Special on Bret and he immediately left the ring. Bret won with the Sharpshooter on Chavo.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Hogan vs. Vader
For some reason, blood was off in my options. So I turned it on. Lucky for Vader that he got involved in this storyline because he was close to being future endeavored. Vader hit a German suplex on Jericho. Hogan was taking on Vader and Jericho brought in a chair. This match took forever for the reason I mentioned above. Hogan won by knocking out Vader with some right hands.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Steiner
Looks like Nash is taking a break from Goldberg. Steiner was hitting Goldberg with all types of suplexes. There was a t-bone, then a belly-to-belly and a standard one. The match spilled on to the outside. Goldberg hit the Jackhammer and took control after that. They made their way to the ramp. Goldberg knocked Steiner out with the spear.

Recap: So much for Kane and Sting being a team. HBK is back! What a way to return.

August Week 3, Year 2

Goldberg introduced the new WCW Title. It's a new day in WCW.

Match 1. Extreme Rules - Rikishi vs. Foley vs. Blackman vs. Bradshaw  Hardcore Championship
This is the first step in Bradshaw's heel run. Rikishi grabbed a title from a fan and Blackman brought in a ladder. Rikishi is bringing in weapon after weapon. First it was a chair, then a garbage can. There must have been a glitch in the match because for about three minutes, Foley picked up and dropped the title without doing anything with it. Rikishi retained after a belly-to-back suplex on Foley.

Match 2. Austin vs. Kane w/ Sting
Sting making his second appearance on Raw. Why? Sting was on the apron while Kane and Austin were fighting. Austin took a break and went after Sting, but that wasn't a good idea as Kane regained control. Austin hit a powerbomb on Kane. Austin went for a Stunner but Kane blocked it and went for a chokeslam but Austin blocked that. He was able to hit two Stunners, but no pin attempt. After a back body drop, Austin got the win.

Match 3. New Age Outlaws vs. Corporation
Despite being a face, Test was teaming up with his heel partner. Shamrock went to grab a chair and Road Dogg followed but he got caught in a double team. There was a lot of tag team action. The Outlaws tried building some momentum, but the Corporation had their number. Test pinned Mr. Ass for the win.

Main Event. TLC - Taker vs. ??? Al Snow
Could HBK be returning? Nope, it's Al Snow. Now, I'm kind of bummed. Taker was climbing the ladder but Snow pushing the ladder and Taker fell through a table. Taker got sat right up. Taker seemed pissed as he hit Snow with a Tombstone out of nowhere. Austin ran from the crowd and entered the ring. Austin hit Snow with a Stunner while Taker grabbed the briefcase. 

Match 1. Pink Slip Match - Jarrett vs. Saturn
The loser will be fired. Both men were making a case on why they should be kept. Jarrett hit a Pedigree, but Saturn wasn't affected. Jarrett hit The Stroke but Saturn kicked out at 2. Jarrett kept the attack strong as he hit a pump handle drop to win.

Match 2. 4 Horsemen vs. Varsity Club
This is a tornado tag match. Two technical wrestlers going at it with two showmen. Perfect and Luger dominated Benoit and Malenko. Hennig pinned Malenko with a swinging neck breaker. The Varsity Club is working their way up in the tag ranks with a win tonight.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Hogan
Before the match started, Vader took a seat next to the announcers. Each man had their run on offense. Hogan used his strength when Jericho was using his speed. Hogan hit a huge back breaker and then reversed Jericho running into a power slam. After a clothesline in the turnbuckle, Hogan scored the pin.

After the match, Vader entered the ring and attacked Jericho. Hogan made the save and tossed Vader out of the ring.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Nash w/ Steiner
Nash ran to the ring and took down Goldberg. I thought this feud was over at Summerslam. These two were in the corner fighting. Steiner hopped up in the apron and suplexed Goldberg to the outside. This match picked up right where the hell in a cell left off. Nash won with the Jackknife.

After the match, Steiner grabbed a chair and hit Goldberg. He then handed the chair to Nash who hit him another time.

Recap: Raw was very entertaining. I'm curious to see where the Sting/Kane pairing is going. Jarrett survives another week on Nitro. WCW is a little more tame than WWF right now.


Wow, this card is horrible. Besides the two title matches, I have to change the other four.

Match 1. New Age Outlaws w/ X-Pac vs. Edge and Christian  WWF Tag Team Championship
The newly-turned Edge and Christian get a title shot. I wonder if X-Pac will interfere in the match. Edge and Christian were working well as a team. X-Pac made his first appearance as he gave Mr. Ass some advice. A few minutes later NAO were in control, beating down both Edge and Christian. Gunn made the hot tag to Dogg and Edge did the same. The Outlaws retain after a double gut buster to Christian.

Match 2. WWF vs. WCW - Stone Cold vs. DDP
The dream match that never happened. Stone Cold hit the Lou Thesz Press on DDP. Austin hit a Stunner then a piledriver. Austin reversed DDP into a bulldog and pinned him for the win.

Match 3. Arn Anderson vs. Booker T vs. Chris Jericho  United States Championship
This match was going to be tough for Arn. Jericho left the ring to take a breather while the other two beat each other up. When Jericho got back in the ring, he received a Book End and a DDT by Anderson. Anderson hit Booker with a running neckbeaker and Jericho capitalized by pinning Booker to win the title.

Match 4. WWF vs. WCW - Triple H vs. Bret Hart
The Game had Hart in the Figure Four, but Hart reversed it. Triple H hit a Pedigree but Hart kicked out at 2. To make sure he wouldn't get up, Triple H pulled out a table. Hart was in control, but it didn't last long. Triple H came back and hit another Pedigree to win.

Match 5. Inferno - Undertaker vs. Kane  WWF Championship
How appropriate is it that these two are in an inferno match? The temperature reached 500 degrees a couple of times early in the match, but nothing happened. The fourth time it reached the high point, Taker threw Kane through the fire to retain the belt.

Main Event. Hell in a Cell - Nash vs. Goldberg  WCW Championship
This is the payoff of weeks of build for this match. Nash hit two chokeslams but no pin attempt. Goldberg hit a Jackhammer and got a long 2-count. Goldberg was taking out all the stops trying to win the belt. Nash hit him with the Jackknife. Out of nowhere, Goldberg hit the spear but Nash reversed the Jackhammer. Goldberg then reversed the Jackknife. The match ended with Goldberg hitting a side belly-to-belly at the 3 count.

Recap: That was a great triple threat match. Hart and Triple H put on one hell of a match. The inferno match was ho-hum. That was the best main event my Universe I've seen.

Saturday, April 21, 2012

August Week 2, Year 2

The leader of the 4 Horsemen is a heel. But why?

Match 1. Cage - Test vs. Christian  Intercontinental Championship
Test was surprised when he heard he had to defend his IC Title. Christian made a couple of early attempts to escape. Since he couldn't escape, Christian hit the Killswitch and tried pinning Test but he kicked out. Test pulled down Christian for the 4th time. He hit a swinging neckbreaker and got the 3 count.

After the match, Christian raised Test's hand in victory. What class shown by Christian. 

Match 2. Holly vs. Edge
Unlike his partner's match, Edge will not be fighting for the title. Austin ran down to the ring and went after Holly. Austin hit him with the Stone Cold Stunner. Despite that, Holly hit Edge with the Falcon Arrow and the Alabama Slam. Holly reversed Edge's spear from the top rope. He hit another Falcon Arrow and pinned Edge for the win.

Match 3. Stone Cold vs. Kane
These two have had some epic matches earlier in the year. They are both looking to get back to the top and face Taker for the WWF Title. Taker made his way to the ring and took a seat with the announcers. Kane hit a pump handle drop. Austin went for a powerbomb, but Kane reversed it and pinned him to score the win.

After the match, Kane was celebrating like a mid-carder. He did grab a chair to punish Austin, but Sting ran down! He took the chair from Kane, yet he hit Austin himself.

Main Event. Undertaker vs. Triple H
With the previous match and this one, I'm seeing a preview of the Brothers of Destruction vs. The Power Trip. Taker hit Triple H with the Tombstone but got a 2 count. Road Dogg ran down to the ring and hit Taker with the pump handle slam. Triple H made his comeback and hit the Pedigree for the win.

After the match, Triple H was going to leave the ring, but he turned around and continued stomping. 

Match 1. DDP vs. Scott Hall
DDP still hasn't hinted and when or where he's going to cash in his title shot. Scott Hall was in complete control over WCW's People's Champ. He hit two Outsider's Edge in a row, yet no pin attempt was made. Hall dropped an elbow to the back of DDP's head and scored the pin.

Match 2. Vader vs. Bagwell
I couldn't think of a match so I just hit random for each superstar and this is what came out. I'm not expecting much from this match. Just a filler leading into the pay-per-view. The match ended with Vader hitting the Vader-bomb.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Hogan
After being held apart for a week, these two are going back at it for the final time before Summerslam. Before the match started, Vader was seen in the front row with a ticket. Didn't he just fight? Couldn't he watch from the back or next to the announcers? This was a very good, back and forth match. The match ended as Hogan was going for a big boot but Jericho reversed it into a roll-up and won.

After the match, Vader ran in the ring and attacked both men.

Main Event. Nash vs. Goldberg
Goldberg was walking down the ramp when Steiner appeared and knocked him out. This match was mostly controlled by Nash. It ended after he hit a sidewalk slam on the outside of the ring.

After the match, Nash grabbed a chair and hit Goldberg a couple of times.

Recap: With Summerslam six days away, there has been a lot of invasion between the two shows in the past couple of weeks. Christian is a face. Sting is officially back and turned heel. Raw is short on heels while Nitro is short on faces. Well, I put Vader in a match for the first time in weeks and he shows up during an important rivalry. 

August Week 1, Year 2

There has been another retirement. Mr. McMahon will no longer compete for the WWF. Summerslam is next Sunday. What will the matches be?

Match 1. Rikishi vs. Foley
Champ taking on former champ. Goldust ran out from the stands with a chair and hung around ringside. He eventually came into the ring and hit Foley with the chair. Foley hit Mr. Socko and the double-arm DDT, but it wasn't enough. Rikishi won after hitting the Rikishi Driver.

Match 2. X-Pac and Bradshaw vs. Test and ???
A random tag match if I say so myself. Even though he had a mystery partner, Test came out alone. This match was mostly a singles match between Pac and Test. X-Pac pinned Test with a hurricanrana roll-up.

After the match, Goldust was in the ring checking on Test. Pac and Bradshaw grabbed chairs and hit them both.

Match 3. Stone Cold vs. Triple H
Edge ran down to the ring, but didn't do anything. As Edge was leaving, Austin hit the Stunner. Triple H hit the Pedigree on Austin, then hit his third piledriver. Triple H hit the knee smash and the spine buster. He hit another Pedigree and won.

Main Event. Kane Test vs. Angle vs. Undertaker
Kane walked down and introduced Test as his replacement. Test and Taker hit Angle with weapons. Taker hit Test with a full nelson slam. Taker then hit Angle with two Tombstones.

After the match, a WWF official checked on Angle.

Match 1. Benoit vs. Jericho vs. Eddie vs. Chavo
A four-way match featuring four of the best technical wrestlers. Jericho hit the Codebreaker on Chavo. Benoit hit the three German suplexes on Eddie. Benoit made Eddie tap out despite Jericho's attempt to break it up. 

Match 2. Ultimo Dragon vs. Rey Mysterio
This is a non-title match. Both cruiserweights were taking a lot of risks to help them win the match.  Ultimo reversed Rey into a double underhook powerbomb. Rey hit a frog splash from the top and pinned Dragon.

Match 3. Savage vs. Hogan
The Mega Powers are going at it tonight. It was supposed to be Jericho and Hogan, but the four-way match caused a change in the card. During the match, Flair came out and attacked Savage. Flair helped Hogan! Even with Flair's help, Hogan hit Savage with a chair. Hogan pinned Savage after his "Hulking Up" punches.

After the match, Hogan grabbed another chair and put Savage's ankle in it. He was interrupted by the returning Farooq.

Main Event. Nash vs. Hall vs. Goldberg
Hall was making his way to the ring when Mr. Ass hit him from behind. I thought they were done with that. To put everyone else at his level, Hall grabbed a sledgehammer and hit both Nash and Goldberg. Nash hit Goldberg with the Jackknife, but Hall broke up the pin. Hall hit Goldberg with the Outsider's Edge but Nash broke up the pin. After a chop block, Goldberg pinned Hall.

Recap: Bradshaw is a heel. Farooq returned. Angle is injured. Al Snow, Angle, and HBK are all injured on Raw. The Sheamus/Show match is still a remarkable match on Nitro despite neither man on the roster. What was Flair's motive to help Hogan?

Friday, April 20, 2012

July Week 4, Year 2

I regret to inform you that after losing the United States Title, Steamboat has decided to retire.

Match 1. Rock vs. Big Show
Rock was able to hit a superplex early in the match. Show returned the favor with a huge powerbomb. Rock hit another superplex a little later. Despite that, Show hit Rock with the WMD, but he got up. After the alley-oop, Big Show pinned Rock for the win.

Match 2. Triple H vs. Christian vs. Mark Henry
The Game and Henry were teaming up on Christian, but it didn't last long. All three men began fighting for themselves. Christian hit HHH with a running heel kick then hit Mark Henry with a front suplex. Henry won by making Triple H tap out with a bear hug.

Match 3. Edge vs. Kane vs. Austin
Austin was heading to the ring, but Kane came out from under it and beat him down. During the match, Austin and Edge teamed up for a short period of time and punched out Kane. Austin received a thunderous chokeslam by Kane. Edge won by hitting Austin with a German suplex pin.

After the match, Edge and Austin shook hands and raised arms in celebration.

Main Event. Taker vs. Angle
The WWF champ is taking on a possible challenger. Taker beat his brother, Kane, at Money in the Bank. Taker hit the Tombstone but only got a 2 count. Taker won the match after hitting a running DDT on Angle.

After the match, Kane ran down and hit Taker with the WWF Title.

Match 1. DDP vs. Scott Hall
Mr. Money in the Bank taking on one half of the WCW Tag champs. In case you missed it, Hall celebrated with Nash after his victory at the PPV. Hall tried to cheat his way to victory by putting his feet on the ropes during a pin. Halfway into the match, DDP hit the Diamond Cutter. Page pinned Hall after a mudhole stomping in the corner.

Match 2. Eddie and Rey vs. Varsity Club
For those of you who didn't see, Mr. Perfect and Lex Luger formed the team Varsity Club. This was a tornado tag team match. Hennig hit a swinging neckbreaker on Eddie. Rey fell victim to the Torture Rack and no choice but to tap.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Hogan
Behind the referee's back, Hulk took out brass knuckles and hit Jericho in the jaw. The match spilled out in front of the announcer's table. Jericho hit an enziguri then a Codebreaker. Jericho reversed Hogan's back body drop into a roll-up and got the 3.

After the match, Hogan and Jericho continued their fighting on the ramp. They were broken up by several referees and officials

Both men went back and forth during the early going. Steiner ran down to the ring. Nash reversed the Jackhammer. Steiner then hit a belly-to-belly on Goldberg. Nash hit the Jackknife but got a 1 count. Goldberg finally hit the Jackhammer and won.

Recap: Edge has turned face after his post-match actions with Austin. Damn,WWE is losing heel after heel. 

Thursday, April 19, 2012


Besides a couple of the non-title matches, the card looks pretty good.
Match 1. Money in the Bank Ladder - Rock vs. Austin vs. Christian vs. Flair vs. DDP vs. Chavo
This could be a very interesting ladder match. Austin was the first one to bring a ladder into the ring. Flair brought the second ladder in the ring. Christian made the first attempt at grabbing the briefcase. Austin took his shot at it, but Chavo pulled him down. While everyone was fighting each other, Rock tried being sneaky and climbed up the ladder. He was caught by Christian who brought him down. Out of nowhere, DDP was able to climb the ladder and pull down the briefcase.

Match 2. Angle vs. Test  Intercontinental Title
Angle won the belt last month. Can Test reclaim it? To wear Angle down, Test put him in two bear hugs. Test hit his finisher on Angle outside the ring. Angle returned the favor with an Angle Slam in the ring. Angle hit a German suplex but only got a 2 count. Test got up, hit a running knee to the skull and got the win.

Match 3. New Age Outlaws vs. Hardys  WWF Tag Team Championship
Road Dogg hit a superplex on Matt Hardy. The Hardys hit Poetry in Motion on Road Dogg. The match got out of control as the steps were brought into the ring and all four men went at it at the same time. During all the chaos, Jeff hit the Twist of Fate on Road Dogg. The NAO retained the titles after Billy Gunn low blowed Matt Hardy and pinned him afterward.

Match 4. Ricky Steamboat vs. Arn Anderson  United States Championship
Just two days after defending his title against Macho Man, Steamboat does it again. Anderson was giving an old school beat down to The Dragon. Double A hit a single-leg corkscrew and then pinned Steamboat to win the US Title.

Match 5. Kane vs. Taker  WWF Championship
Kane was dominating his brother through the early going. Taker brought the match the outside and hit a leg drop across Kane's throat. Taker broke out of Kane's chokeslam and in turn hit the Tombstone. Kane received a big boot and a leg drop, then was pinned 1-2-3.

After the match, Taker was leaving the ring but Triple H's music hit. The Game ran down and threw Taker into the steps.

Main Event. Last Man Standing - Nash vs. Goldberg  WCW Championship
How fitting that after what Nash did to Goldberg on Nitro that they are in a LMS match. As Goldberg was heading to the ring, Steiner attacked him from behind. I guess Nash had to make sure we retained the title. Soon after the match started, Nash hit the Jackknife but Goldberg got up at 2. Nash hit a back body drop and then a big boot. Goldberg couldn't get up from that and Nash retained.

After the match, Scott Hall came in the ring and hugged Nash.

Recap: Triple H returned and it looks like Taker has his next opponent. Overall, this was a great card with a couple of titles changing hands. It looks like all is well with the WCW Tag champs.

July Week 3, Year 2

Money in the Bank is this Sunday. I wonder who will be in the ladder match.

Match 1. Taker and HBK vs. Test and Shamrock
An odd pairing of Mchaels and The Deadman taking on members of the Corporation. HBK and Test started off the match. HBK hit Test with two consecutive piledrivers. Taker and Michaels were working well as a team. Michaels chased Shamrock out of the ring but was trapped by Test as well. Taker hit the Tombstone on Test but Shamrock broke it up at the last minute. Shamrock pinned HBK after a running neckbreaker.

After the match, an EMT checked on Michaels. He wasn't moving. 

Match 2. Foley vs. Al Snow
Foley was dominating Snow for the first couple of minutes. These two will have future shots at the Hardcore Title in the next month. Foley locked Mr. Socko on Snow. Foley won after the double-arm DDT.

After the match, Al Snow was carried away on a stretcher.

Match 3. Stone Cold and Edge vs. Holly and Kane
This is the rematch from last week's tag match. Austin came down to the ring along. No one knew where Edge was. Holly and Kane both had their way with Stone Cold. Kane hit Austin with a chokeslam then pinned him.

After the match, Edge checked on Austin but Kane hit him with a chair.

Main Event. Angle vs. ??? Triple H
Triple H is his opponent! After weeks of teaming up, Triple H turned on Angle. Angle was taken by surprise when Triple H's music hit. Angle went for a moonsault, but HHH put his knees up to block it. Triple H hit a hard back drop on Angle then took out his left leg to score the pin.

Match 1. 4-man Battle Royal - Warrior vs. Regal vs. Jarrett vs. Booker
Warrior and Jarrett went for eliminations very early. They succeeded as Regal and Booker were tossed out simultaneously. Warrior and Jarrett remained. Warrior eventually kicked Jarrett out of the ring to win.

Match 2. Savage vs. Steamboat  United States Championship
Savage is cashing in his title shot that he won at King of the Ring. This match should be a classic. Macho Man hit a couple of neck breakers. Steamboat fought back with a combination of kicks. Steamboat retained the title by hitting a powerful missile dropkick off the top rope.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Hogan
Before the match started, Hulk put his hand out for a handshake. Jericho fell for it as Hogan kicked him in the stomach. Hogan hit Jericho with a suplex. He then went for a body slam, but Jericho reversed it into a suplex of his own. Outside the ring, Hogan hit Jericho with the "Hulking Up" punches and pinned him to win.

After the match, Jericho was leaving the ring but Hogan continued the assault.

Main Event. Nash vs. Goldberg
The ref was checking Goldberg for a weapon while Nash was putting on brass knuckles. He hit Goldberg in the jaw with them and down he went. Scott Hall ran down to the ring while Goldberg hit the Jackhammer. When he was done, Hall hit him with the Outsider's Edge. Goldberg went after him. Even after receiving another Jackhammer, Nash was able to pin Goldberg after he hit a back drop.

After the match, Nash grabbed a chair and hit Goldberg a few times.

Recap: Michaels is injured. Sucks man. Al Snow is also injured but I'm not too concerned with him. Why did Triple H decide to face Angle? However, Triple H is still listed as injured.

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

July Week 2, Year 2

Match 1. Gauntlet - Big Show vs. Jeff, Matt and Steve Blackman
Show will face each man individually. Can he defeat all 3? Jeff proved to be a challenge to Show in the first match. Jeff won the match by hitting a Twist of Fate after reversing the Showstopper.

Match 2. Rock vs. Undertaker
The People's Champ vs. The Deadman. Taker was putting Rock in a bunch of different holds. This match was all Taker. He hit the Last Ride and Tombstone, but didn't pin Rock. He went outside and grabbed a sledgehammer. Taker hit another Tombstone to secure the win.

Match 3. Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Angle and Triple H
Scotty was waiting for his opponents, but Angle attacked him from behind. Triple H was tagged in, hit the Pedigree and pinned Scotty.

After the match, Triple H grabbed a chair just like last week. However, Lawler ran in and made the save.

Main Event. Kane and Holly vs. Edge and ??? Austin
Edge's partner is Stone Cold! Kane and Edge started the match. Kane hit Edge with a chokeslam surprisingly early. However, Edge was able to get up and tag in Austin. Holly and Kane continued to double team Edge, with Austin having to break up pin attempts. Holly hit Austin with the Falcon Arrow suplex and then a double underhook back breaker to knock out Stone Cold.

Match 1. Chavo vs. Ultimo Dragon vs. Rey  Cruiserweight Title
It was every man for himself as soon as the bell rang. I wonder what Eddie thinks of his partner going for a single's title. The champ was at risk of losing his title many times. Chavo hit Ultimo with the Gory Bomb. Rey hit Chavo with the 619 and senton splash. Dragon brought in a chair for some insurance. Dragon hit Chavo with an inverted float-over DDT to knock the champ out. Dragon is the new champ!

Match 2. Eddie vs. Steamboat
If Rey can compete in singles action, so can Eddie. This is a non-title match. Eddie hit Three Amigos on the champ. He then hit another high-angle suplex and pinned Steamboat.

Match 3. Jericho vs. Savage
Hogan attacked Jericho as he was making his way to the ring. Savage has a title shot for any belt in WCW after winning the battle royal. Despite the attack, Jericho was showing The Macho Man his technical skills. Savage took his turn on offense. Jericho won after a Codebreaker.

After the match, Vince came out to announce Jericho had another opponent.

Match 4. Jericho vs. Hogan
Hogan took advantage of Jericho's weaken state. Surprisingly, Jericho was still on top of his game, putting the hurt on Hogan. Out of nowhere, Jericho hit the Codebreaker, but Hogan kicked out at two. A couple of minutes later, Jericho caught Hogan in a roll-up and won.

Main Event. Nash vs. Goldberg
No Scott Hall this week. It looks like Goldberg is the #1 contender for Nash's WCW Title. Nash hit Goldberg with a chokeslam and a tilt-a-whirl slam. Goldberg turned it up and hit Nash with a side kick. Nash hit Goldberg with a Jackknife but it was only a 2 count. Goldberg hit the Jackhammer and pinned the champ in the middle of the ring.

Recap: I'm liking this team of Angle and Triple H. Lawler is a face because of his alliance with Scotty. First McMahon, then Test and now Lawler? What a strange turn of events in WWE. Vince runs WCW? Jericho won two matches in the same night. He's moving up in WCW.

July Week 1, Year 2

Match 1. 4-Way - Shamrock vs. Holly vs. Blackman vs. Jeff Hardy  European Title
Holly and Shamrock went at it while Blackman and Jeff locked up. Jeff hit a springboard DDT on Blackman. Blackman was going for his finisher on Holly, but Jeff broke it up. Jeff had Blackman pinned but Shamrock broke it up at 2.9. Holly tried his shot at pinning Blackman and he was successful. Holly is the new European Champion.

Match 2. Test vs. Rikishi vs. Henry
This is a non-title triple threat match. Test stayed away while Rikishi and Henry went at it. That didn't last long as Rikishi trapped Test in a bear hug. The match ended with Henry hitting Rikishi with the World's Strongest Slam and knocking him out.

Match 3. Lawler Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Angle and Triple H
This doesn't seem fair for The King. I wonder if he has something up his sleeve. Lawler came out holding his arm. Scotty 2 Hotty replaced him. Be careful Scotty, you could get injured. Early on, Scotty hit Angle with a super hurricanrana. As if the 2 on 1 advantage wasn't enough, Angle brought in a chair. He hit an Angle Slam to knock out Scotty.

After the match, Triple H brought in a chair and continued the attack on Scotty 2 Hotty.

Main Event. Stone Cold vs. Edge
Edge was on his way to the ring, but Bradshaw attacked him from behind. Without Farooq, I guess Bradshaw needs to do something. Edge was able to wake up and defend himself. Austin stomped a mudhole in Edge then hit the Stone Cold Stunner. Austin pinned Edge after a running clothesline.

After the match, Kane hit Austin in the head with the WWF Title.

Match 1. Benoit and Malenko vs. Steiner and Bagwell
This tornado tag match could determine the next contenders for the WCW Tag Titles. The representatives of the 4 Horsement are showing their skills to Steiner and Bagwell. This match was mostly Benoit and Malenko. It ended with Benoit pinning Steiner after a knee to the gut.

Match 2. Bret Hart vs. Chris Jericho
Two submission experts going at it in the ring. Hart and Jericho went back and forth with grapples and strikes. Jericho hit Bret with the Codebreaker but Bret kicked out at 2. Bret knocked Jericho to the outside, then went after him. Bret won after an arm drag leg drop combo.

Match 3. Sting vs. Vader
Sting was having a hard time getting Vader off his feet early. But he was able to reverse some of Vader's moves. Vader used his strength to hit a huge powerbomb on Sting. Vader went for a chokeslam but Sting reversed it. After the third powerbomb, Vader pinned Sting.

After the match, a WCW official checked on Sting, who was face down in the ring.

Main Event. Nash vs. Hall vs. Goldberg
Nash hit the first move, hitting Scott Hall with a back drop. I thought this would be a handicap match, but Hall and Nash were going after each other. Goldberg brought a chair into the match to even the odds. Goldberg hit a spear on Nash and won the match.

After the match, Nash threw a temper tantrum and punched Michael Cole.

Recap: Is the nWo slowly falling apart? Sting is injured. His return is questionable.

June Week 4, Year 2

Raw lost both of the cross-brand matches. WCW has taken over the #1 spot.

Match 1. Hardyz vs. Edge and Christian
 Matt and Christian started things off. Each team incorporated double team moves into their attack. After many tags, Edge speared Matt but Jeff broke up the pin. Jeff went for a Twist of Fate but Christian reversed it into the Killswitch. Jeff was able to hit the Twist of Fate on Edge, but he kicked out at one. In a surprise to me, Christian hit Matt with the spear and won.

Match 2. 6-man Tag - X-Pac and New Age Outlaws vs. APA and Godfather
Road Dogg and Godfather started it off, but they both quickly tagged out. The APA and Godfather were keeping their opponents in their corner. DX was causing all types on confusing, having all three members in at once. After much back and forth action, X-Pac scored the pin on Farooq after an X-Factor.

After the match, the ref checked on Farooq.

Match 3. Lawler and Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Angle and Triple H
Scotty 2 Hotty makes his Raw debut. And it looks like The Game is recovered from his injury. Lawler and Angle get things going. Angle quickly tagged in Triple H. If Scotty can win here, he would be launched into Superstardom. Triple H hit Scotty with a running clothesline for the win.

Main Event. Taker vs. Big Show
Show used his strength to dismantle Taker. The match ended up on the outside where show threw Taker into the steps. Taker got very little offense in during the match. Out of nowhere, Taker hit Old School then the Tombstone, but Show kicked out at 2. After a side slam, Taker got the 3 count.

After the match, Austin came in and raised Taker's arm in celebration.

Match 1. Mr. Perfect and Luger vs. Eddie and Rey
Another Superstar debuting as Curt Hennig debuts on Nitro. Eddie and Rey are looking to regain their tag titles. Can this new team of Luger and Mr. Perfect beat the former champs and climb the ranks in the tag division? Rey was able to pin Luger after a roll-up. Perfect and Luger are not off to a good start.

Match 2. Savage vs. Jericho
Two of the greatest go at it, looking to move up in the rankings. Savage hit Jericho with a back suplex and a double ax smash from the top rope. These two put on a classic with Jericho picking up the win after a Codebreaker.

After the match, Hogan appeared at the top of the ramp and attacked Jericho. 

Match 3. Booker vs. Regal
The technical master William Regal was on offense when the bell rang. The match spilled out in front of the announcers. Regal put Booker in a t-bone suplex pin, but he kicked out. Regal hit his powerbomb and scored the victory.

After the match, Regal grabbed a chair to attack Booker, but Scotty 2 Hotty ran down and saved Booker.

Main Event. Goldberg vs. Scott Hall
Hall was on offense at first, but Goldberg got some moves in, too. Goldberg hit the Jackhammer, but didn't go for a pin. He picked him a chair and clocked Hall over the head. Hall hit the fallaway slam and then the Outsider's Edge. Goldberg kicked out at 2. Goldberg won after a powerslam.

Recap: Farooq is injured for now. Despite the loss, Hennig and Luger formed a team - Varsity Club. Is Hogan a face? Will he leave the nWo? Damn, Scotty is making it known that he's back.
