MANKIND BECOMES REGAINS THE WWF TITLE WITH THE AID OF A FORKLIFT: We start tonight’s program with highlights from the “Empty Arena” match between the Rock and Mankind.

SHANE McMAHON is in charge again tonight because his father Vince McMahon is away on special assignment in Victoria, Texas to provoke and confront Stone Cold Steve Austin. Last time Shane was in charge, that worked out real well. He is backstage talking to the BIG BOSS MAN, KEN SHAMROCK, and TEST. Shane knows that the Rock is on his way, but wants to know where Kane is at. Nobody wants to travel with that big red retard (Shane’s words, not mine!), so nobody knows where he’s at. Shane taps on Chyna’s dressing room door alerting her it’s time to go to the ring when Boss Man bumps into TERRI and JACQUELINE. He points his finger in Terri’s face and calls her a “bitch”. Whoa! Now hit that RAW intro.

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. Read the rest of this entry
