WWF: SuNDAY NiGHT HeAT (12.13.98)

WWF: SuNDAY NiGHT HeAT
December 13, 1998
Vancouver, BC, Canada
General Motors Place

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: The Rock (11/15/1998)
Intercontinental Champion: Ken Shamrock (10/12/1998)
World Tag Team Champions: The New Age Outlaws (8/30/1998)
European Champion: X-Pac (10/18/1998)
Light Heavyweight Champion: Duane Gill (11/23/1998)
Hardcore Champion: The Big Boss Man (11/30/1998)
Women’s Champion: Sable (11/15/1998)

Vince McMahon comes out to a HORRENDOUS amount of boos. He declares there will be no chance in hell Stone Cold Steve Austin will ever be the WWF champion. He knows he said that if Austin wins the “Buried Alive” match tonight against the Undertaker, he would qualify for the Royal Rumble. However, McMahon feels Austin’s hopes of reaching the Royal Rumble will be literally “buried alive” by the Undertaker on the Rock Bottom PPV here tonight. As far as the Rock is concerned and his condition, this PPV tonight will be dedicated to the Best Damn WWF champion there ever has been. Vince asks for the crowd to pay homage to the Rock here tonight and calls for a drumroll. As McMahon points to the stage, fireworks go off and a huge blown up shot of the Rock holding the WWF championship drops and hangs on either side of the entryway. Now that’s out of the way, Vince starts to denigrate Canada just as he did to England a week earlier. Once he’s done slamming Canada for being a bunch of US-wannabes, he brings out Shane McMahon to join Kevin Kelly for commentary.

HOT ENOUGH? Your hosts are Kevin Kelly and Shane McMahon. Read the rest of this entry

WWF: Raw is War (12.07.98)

WWF: Raw is War
December 7, 1998
New Haven, CT
New Haven Coliseum

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: The Rock (11/15/1998)
Intercontinental Champion: Ken Shamrock (10/12/1998)
World Tag Team Champions: The New Age Outlaws (8/30/1998)
European Champion: X-Pac (10/18/1998)
Light Heavyweight Champion: Duane Gill (11/23/1998)
Hardcore Champion: The Big Boss Man (11/30/1998)
Women’s Champion: Sable (11/15/1998)

TONIGHT: Stone Cold Steve Austin teams up with Mankind to battle the Rock and the Undertaker. What will happen when these four superstars COLLIDE?

TIME TO GET RAW! Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. In case you didn’t know, Jim Ross suffered his second Bell’s Palsy attack last night at Capital Carnage (and finished the show!). Michael Cole is your number one PBP man until Ross is able to return to call the WrestleMania XV main event. Not being a “live” broadcast, you’ll catch Jim Ross still sitting at the announce table whenever he appears within the eye of a camera even though the commentary would be completed in Stamford, CT. Essentially, there’s no cutting to Michael Cole or Jerry Lawler during this episode of RAW. Read the rest of this entry

Women’s Champion: Sable (11/15/1998)

We have not really heard much out of Kaientai since TAKA Michinoku lost the WWF Light Heavyweight title to Christian back at Judgment Day: In Your House back in October. Now that Duane Gill from the JOB Squad has managed to capture the Light Heavyweight title away from Christian, now is the time for TAKA Michinoku and Kaientai to win back the gold. We see Yamaguchi-san cutting a short Japanese promo from a stairwell. Standing behind him are TAKA Michinoku and Sho Funaki with their arms crossed looking pissed while Dick Togo and Men’s Teioh stand behind *them* waving Japanese flags.

HOT ENOUGH? Your hosts are Kevin Kelly and Jim Cornette. Read the rest of this entry
