General Motors Place

The current WWF champs are as follows:
WWF Champion: The Rock (11/15/1998)

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

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

WE’RE IN BLOODY OL’ ENGLAND! Your hosts are Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. Unfortunately, this is the last we’ll hear from Jim Ross until WrestleMania XV due to a Bell’s Palsy attack. On the plus side though, at least this time he wasn’t fired. I mean, what company would fire a man due to an uncontrollable medical condition? Can you imagine? Read the rest of this entry

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
