Earlier tonight, Steve Austin showed up to the arena with a big smile on his face.

Your hosts are Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. I will say, unlike in WCW, there’s not a ton of thought put into the PPV sets in 1998 outside of the now “Big Five”. Every WCW PPV set in 1998 looks like there was at least some artistic thought put into them. Read the rest of this entry

We get a great video package highlighting the last month of issues between Steve Austin and Mr. McMahon. Austin ain’t through with ya, Vince. Not by a long shot.

Earlier tonight on RAW, Mr. McMahon drives himself to the building in his beautiful white Corvette. I would be just kidding you if I knew what year model. Anyways, the security guard takes his sweet time opening the garage door. Once he drives past the door, Vince gives him the riot act. Commissioner Slaughter, Pat Patterson, and Gerald Brisco are there to meet Vince and help him out of the car. McMahon vents about the “idiot” at the garage door. He wants the guy to keep the door open for when Steve Austin arrives. Oh boy. Trouble is a-brewing. Vince has a nice Titan Wheelchair, by the way.
