First mention of "the Powers That Be." As part of Vince Russo and Ed Ferrara's arrival, they made themselves the top heels leading to numerous references to the writers from "up North," as Russo and Ferrara had previously worked for the then-World Wrestling Federation. The Powers That Be would grow to a stable comprising Russo, Oklahoma (Ed Ferrara as a hideously unfunny Jim Ross
parody), Creative Control (Ron and Don Harris as "Patrick and Gerald," a reference to Pat Patterson and Gerald Brisco, who played Vince McMahon's "Stooges"), Curt Hennig, Jeff Jarrett, Shane (Mike Jones, aka Virgil, with the name a reference to Shane McMahon) and La Parka. See more
