The current WWF champs are as follows:

European Champion: Triple H (3/17/1998)
Light Heavyweight Champion: TAKA Michinoku (12/7/1997)

At the start of the show, they air a montage highlighting the main event of last night’s Over the Edge PPV with Vince McMahon narrating his own biased account of what went down. Considering Vince used to narrate the happenings of PPVs past just like he’s doing here for the following night on RAW, this was an excellent attempt at anti-Stone Cold Steve Austin propaganda.

WWF: Unforgiven – In Your House XXI (04.98)

WWF: Unforgiven – In Your House
April 26, 1998
Greensboro, NC
Greensboro Coliseum

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: Steve Austin (3/29/1998)
Intercontinental Champion: The Rock (12/8/1997)
World Tag Team Champions: The New Age Outlaws (3/30/1998)
European Champion: Triple H (3/17/1998)
Light Heavyweight Champion: TAKA Michinoku (12/7/1997)

This is significant for being the first WWF pay per view in the Greensboro Coliseum. Except for West Virginia which will probably never ever hold a WWE pay per view, North Carolina is the last state of the old Mid-Atlantic territory to host a WWF pay per view. South Carolina had the infamous In Your House: Beware of Dog PPV in May 1996 while Virginia held it’s first WWF pay per view in April of last year entitled In Your House: Revenge of the Taker that saw Paul Bearer receive a fireball in his face from the Undertaker.

Old school fans will recognize this building as the “Madison Square Garden of the South” when it came to wrestling. The historic venue held 15,000 until a renovation in the early 1990s. It was reopened in 1994 and could hold a maximum of 23,000. This show is considered a sellout with 21,427 (20,268 paid) in attendance and the biggest crowd in the coliseum since the record-setting Starrcade ’86 show.

Enough trivia, let’s go on with Unforgiven.

They are still using the same movie trailer voiceover guy for these PPV promos. I wonder how many more PPVs they will use him since he has that feel of the old way of doing things for the WWF. Freddie Blassie quotes some of Dante’s “Inferno” to try and set the mood for the upcoming Undertaker versus Kane match tonight.

Your hosts are Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler.
