HOT ENOUGH? Your hosts are Kevin Kelly and Shane McMahon.

VINCE McMAHON comes out and introduces CORPORATE KANE to the ring. Just when we thought we’d never see him again. Make no mistake about it, Vince reminds everybody that Kane is a menace to society. He’s anti-social, has no values, has no morals, and possesses no social redeeming qualities whatsoever. While Kane was away for a while, he was tested to be found to be both a certifiable lunatic and a certifiable idiot. If Kane had any schooling growing up, his report card would read “disruptive in class and does not play well with others”. Kane’s life was a little different growing up (NO KIDDING) after being severely burned as a child. If Vince were to take off Kane’s mask, you would see the most grotesque, gargoyle-like, Frankenstein face that you’ve ever seen. Boy, Vince sure knows how to compliment a guy. Vince then reminds everybody that sometimes “life is a b[beep]ch” and that Kane is a genetically altered, mentally deficient FREAK. Vince is loving this. It’s okay – because now Kane is Vince’s FREAK. As long as Kane does what Vince says when he says, there won’t be any problems. Vince makes it clear that the day Kane defies him is the day he’ll send Kane back to the hell hole sanitarium where he belongs until his dying day. Now that all the conditions are clear, Vince turns him to the TitanTron to watch a clip from last week’s RAW where X-Pac gave Shane McMahon the Bronco Buster. Vince orders Kane to wrestle X-Pac tonight for retribution. Destroy X-Pac! Dismember X-Pac! DISEMBOWEL X-PAC! For shits and grins, Vince gets Kane to speak. He grabs his throat modulator and then verbalizes a thank you to Mr. McMahon. Vince makes Kane say it again – LOUDER this time. Well, wasn’t that nice. Kane’s music hits, he sets the corners on fire, and then the lights go out with a red light shining down on the ring to end this segment.

After the break, Vince is standing around with Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson, and Corporate Kane. Brisco offers to get Vince some coffee, but Vince decides he wants Kane to get him his coffee. Oh boy. Vince likes a little sweetener with his coffee. I’m surprised.

  • Mosh (w/Thrasher) vs. Golga (w/The Oddities)

They take us back to last week on HeAT when George “The Animal” Steele made his WWF return as a member of the Oddities. Golga lands the avalanche and follows up with an elbow drop and a legdrop. As he goes for the Golga Splash, Thrasher grabs an ankle from the floor as Mosh nails Golga from behind. They choke Golga on the middle rope setting up a Boss Man straddle. Getting tired of the double-team, Steele jumps in the ring and uses his foreign object to jab Mosh for the DQ. (1:38) The Oddities end up getting rid of the Headbangers and they do their dance while Steele chews on a turnbuckle pad. N/R

Backstage, we catch Terri and Jacqueline primping in front of a mirror.

RAW, 12/21/98. We go back to see Mark Henry getting tricked by Terri and Jacqueline’s womanly ways to keep him out of a tag match with D’Lo Brown against the Headbangers.

Onto the ring, Michael Cole introduces P.M.S. It’s just TERRI and JACQUELINE. Kevin Kelly explains that both of these women are banning together because they have been in bad relationships as of late – Terri with Goldust and later with Val Venis while Jacqueline has recently broke up with Marc Mero. Shane thinks these two girls won’t have a problem getting sugar daddies as they have major SCHWING factor. Man, his virgin scale is off the charts right now. Jacqueline explains that P.M.S. stands for Pretty Mean Sisters. It’s not much better than premenstrual syndrome, but it’ll do. Cole wants to know what their objective is. Terri explains that there’s a lot of WWF superstars with huge egos – and P.M.S. is here to put them in their place. As she continues to explain what they do, she shows us what they will do by doing it to Michael Cole. They try to embarrass him by pulling his jeans down on TV, but his rock hard cock gets in the way thanks to Terri, so Jacqueline knees him in the balls instead. Cole lays there in the middle of the ring in the fetal position. I LOVE IT. Now Terri slams the mic down onto Cole. Kevin Kelly – “P.M.S. used to only come once a month. Now I guess it’s here to stay!” Look out, men. With how open P.M.S. is about their plans, these girls would make terrible undercover cops.

The Stooges check in on how Kane handled the coffee situation. Gerald tries to order Kane to get him some coffee, but Kane is about to ready to snap. Brisco was just kidding. He and Pat can get their own coffee.

  • Owen Hart & Jeff Jarrett (w/Debra) vs. Supply & Demand (w/”Friends”)

WHO IS THE BLUE BLAZER? Kevin Kelly still doesn’t know. This is the tag team debut of Owen Hart and Jeff Jarrett. Godfather tries to get Debra to join the Ho Train. Debra lets him know she is way outta his league. Back and forth shots traded between Venis and Jarrett. Owen tags in and takes a fun double team. I guess he’s not retired anymore. Jarrett knees Venis from the apron into a belly to belly suplex by Owen. There’s the Spinning Heel Kick to Venis. Jarrett tags in as he and Owen make a wish. Venis elbows out of a sleeperhold and hits a Spinebuster on Jarrett. The match breaks down and Godfather lands the Ho Train on Owen. As they clear out, Venis hits the Russian legsweep on Jarrett. He stands over Jarrett for the Rick Rude pose, but in comes Debra. She starts to show Val the goods when Jarrett catches him with the STROKE for the win. (3:12) Fun little Attitude Era match. *½

Backstage, we catch the ACOLYTES lacing up their boots in the dark.

  • WWF World Tag Team Championship: The Big Boss Man & Ken Shamrock (c) vs. The Hardy Boyz

Kevin Kelly feels the Hardy Boyz are in no way ready for Boss Man and Shamrock. No entrance for the Hardyz, so that’s never good. Shamrock starts out pounding on Matt. Blind tag to Jeff, he flies in on Shamrock with a flying bodypress for two. Jeff flails off of Shamrock during the kickout. It was a bit much. Shamrock destroys Jeff with a clothesline and tags in Boss Man. Hey wait a minute, the Acolytes are backstage WALKING. The BOSS MAN SLAM puts down Jeff, but Boss Man lets go of the pin and tags in Shamrock to apply the ANKLELOCK for the win. (1:57) The Acolytes come out and lay waste to Boss Man and Shamrock. Okay then!

After the break, they take us back to moments ago with the Acolytes.

Kevin Kelly sets up a year-end music video with highlights of 1998. This is a GREAT video package and it’s six minutes long. When you’re this hot, you really can’t do wrong. Right?

We catch Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels walking to the ring with Kane. They look very reluctant and on high alert.

  • X-Pac (w/DX) vs. Kane (w/Vince McMahon & Shawn Michaels)

Commissioner HBK sends DX back to the locker room before the match. Go on, GIT. The Euro title obviously won’t be on the line here. Kane is stuck staring at HBK while Triple H distracts the ref so that X-Pac can hit him in the back of the knee with a chair. He starts kicking at Kane while Vince McMahon joins the commentary table. X-Pac kicks Kane in the nuts to avoid a Chokeslam and lands the X-FACTOR. Slow to cover, 1-2-NO! X-Pac comes off the top into the goozle for the CHOKESLAM. Quicker cover, 1-2-3. (1:24) Shawn Michaels orders Kane to DESTROY X-Pac with more CHOKESLAMS. Shawn wants to see Kane give X-Pac a Tombstone. D-X hits the ring to prevent that from happening. Triple H and Billy Gunn clothesline Kane out to the floor. Vince grabs Kane by the hair like an old school Oliver Humperdink manager and gets his freak under control. DX WILL NOT GO QUIETLY, BUT THE CORPORATION HOLDS ALL THE CARDS. ½*

We’ll see you tomorrow night on RAW.
