1998 was a huge year for the WWF. Having trailed WCW in terms of television ratings and pay-per-view buys for some, the company was finally starting to get its act together. Although top star Bret Hart had exited the company at the 1997 Survivor Series on the very worst of terms, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, for a number of reasons.
WWE was able to push their tyrannical owner Vince as the evil Mr. McMahon based off the fact that he had screwed Hart. It was money. In Hart’s absence people like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and Triple H were able to step up and fight for the top spots, too. Hart, who had publicly objected to the increasing sexuality of WWF programming, couldn’t stand in the way of the Attitude Era any longer.
The company laid down the gauntlet in January »

Stephen Merchant is one of the original lip-syncers, helping to bring it to its current form on Jimmy Fallon, where he did a very memorable rendition of DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mr. Pinkett's "Boom! Shake the Room." This is to say that Malin Akerman (Rip, Trophy Wife) has a lot of work cut out for her. How do they fare? Battle 1: Malin Akerman's "Pour Some Sugar on Me" vs. Stephen Merchant's "Hero" I'm going to start off by saying, Malin Akerman, I think you have a lot of potential! Your rendition of Def Leppard is solid and by-the-book, and would certainly have put you over the top against Hoda Kotb or Mike Tyson, but Stephen Merchant's "Hero" is a thing of beauty, and easily my favorite performance on this show yet. It's weird, kooky, and does exactly what I think a lip sync should do, which »
