MOMENTS AGO: Vince McMahon tells Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson, and Gerald Brisco he’s leaving to go for a “quick work out” to train for the Royal Rumble and leaves his son Shane in charge of tonight’s RAW. He reminds Patterson and Brisco that they are responsible for Shane’s actions. Keep your ego and temper in check, pal. When Vince returns, he’ll bring back a “bonus” for the Corporation to enjoy. Shane heads straight for the building – WITH A PURPOSE – while Patterson and Brisco try to keep up.

Before we go to the arena, we catch WWF champion the Rock making a public appearance yesterday at Planet Hollywood (remember those?) in Vancouver. He reminds us this is the ROCK’s PAY-PER-VIEW aptly entitled “Rock Bottom”. Future ‘In Your House’ PPVs will be named in honor of the Rock and will be named: Rock Solid, Rock n Roll, and of course Layin’ the Smackdown. Because this is a Rock PPV, it will have the finest action in sports entertainment today. Now KNOW YOUR ROLE, SHUT YOUR MOUTH, and enjoy the Rock’s PPV if ya smell.

Your hosts are Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. This is Michael Cole’s debut as a lead commentator on a PPV. Check out the burial site! Over two tons of dirt and a tombstone that weighs 3,000 pounds! Read the rest of this entry

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: The Rock (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.

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
