Quotes

The Rock: According to The Rock's Rolex, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Your time is up and judging by the fact your sorry carcass isn't out here, delivering what's rightfully The Rock's, and that's the Intercontinental belt, It just goes to show that you're as gutless as can be. And Stone Cold Steve Austin, you've managed to do something that you shouldn't have done and that's piss The Rock off. And now The Rock and the Nation are coming to get my Intercontinental Belt.
Steve Austin: [...]

Welcome to the Attitude Era!

Live from Durham, NH

It's announced that The Undertaker will face Shawn Michaels for the WWF title at the Royal Rumble. Michael Cole announces it will be a Casket Match. He says he can beat Shawn Michaels at will. He says Shawn has to look in the eyes of the reaper, and he can't beat Taker one on one. He says he's lost only one casket match, and it took 10 people to stick him in the casket. He says he's gonna win the WWF title and that Shawn will rest in peace. Paul Bearer calls Taker a murderer and says Kane's 20 year suffering is Taker's fault. Paul Bearer says Taker must face Kane. Kane slaps Taker. He tries to slap him again, but Taker grabs his hand and simply, walks away.

Jerry 'The King' Lawler Vs Taka Michinoku

Michinoku has the match won the Michinoku driver, but Brian Christopher runs in to cause the DQ. Taka gets the last laugh, though. Lawler is horrible in the ring, wildly overrated at commentary and wrestling. The only thing he was good at was getting crowd heat. I never really saw the appeal.

*1/4 out of 5

The Rock and The Nation of Domination come out. The Rock says he's the undisputed Intercontinental Champion and the best damn Intercontinental Champion, there ever was. Farooq tries to say something, but The Rock politely tells him to be quiet. The Rock says Steve Austin stole the people's Intercontinental Title and calls Austin a "gutless, thief in the night" The Rock demands Austin come out. The Rock gets his wish. Austin says he does whatever he wants, when he wants. He reminds The Nation he ran his truck all over their asses. He says he gave Rock the title, because he was in a good mood and he had mercy on him. The Rock keeps licking his lips, so Austin tells him to stop it before he sows his lips shut. Haha! He says, The Rock will find out where his title is and he's in way over his head. The Rock says Austin has one our to return The Rock's belt or The Nation will come and find him.

Dude Love Vs Road Dog

Dude Love wins with Sweet Shin Music. Afterwards, The New Age Outlaws throw Dude Love off the stage, through a table. Good heat for The Outlaws. Job well done all around. I also enjoyed Dude having an identity crisis and acting like Mankind.

*1/2 out of 5

Mark Henry Vs The Brooklyn Brawler

Henry squashes him with a bearhug. Henry would turn heel soon after this and join The Nation.

Vince McMahon says Owen Hart has endangered the fans with his antics. Vince says Owen is still under contract to the WWF and he orders Owen to the ring. Owen Hart comes out dressed in black through the crowd. A huge "Owen" chant starts up. Vince asks Owen what's up. Owen says he doesn't owe Vince a damn apology or a damn thing. He says he's tired of pleasing everybody else and the BS stops now. He says nobody is gonna run him out of the WWF, not even Shawn Michaels. Owen says he doesn't care about the WWF title and calls it worthless. He says it's personal and he's gonna ruin Shawn Michael's life. He says he can call him the black sheep, he doesn't give a S (the s word) Vince brings in security. Owen grabs Vince by the shirt collar before security takes him away.

The Sultan Vs Tom Brandi

Brandi gets the upset win with a roll-up. Mero low blows Brandi from behind afterwards. Not much to say about this one.

* out of 5

The Rock says Austin has pi*** him off and he's coming to find Austin. Steve Austin appears near a bridge. He throws a snorkel, flippers, goggles, an oxygen tank, a cellphone, a beeper, and a regulator. He says it's gonna hurt him to do this, but he doesn't give a damn about The Rock or the WWF, and throws the Intercontinental Title into the river. Epic moment and a damn classic.

Vince ushers in the Attitude Era and says the viewers are tired of having there intelligence insulted. No longer will their be good vs evil. He takes a huge shot at Hulk Hogan as well.

Steve Blackman Vs Jose Estrada

Blackman wins with a German suplex with a bridge. Blackman debuted with little fanfare.

* out of 5

Shawn Michaels & Triple H Vs The Legion of Doom

The match ends in a DQ after The Outlaws interfere. They destroy LOD with the help of DX. This would be the beginning of The Outlaws teaming with DX. It was a historical moment in a relatively average match.

** out of 5

This is an excellent episode of raw, despite a weak crowd. Everything clicked and there were many memorable moments. It's also the official start of the Attitude Era.

8/10
