    Pacific Northwest Wrestling

    "And a great empire fell and crumbled, and all of the other, smaller dynasties were destroyed in it's wake. The emperor himself disappeared, and was never seen again. Or was he?" -- Anonymous "He can't be killed! There is nothing that can stop him! He keeps coming back!" -- Anonymous victim, Friday the 13th part (choose one) From the ashes of the professional wrestling industry, which imploded almost overnight, comes Pacific Northwest Wrestling. Surrounded by a ton of mystery, little is known about the organization that has formed in a lonely corner of the United States. Undeniably, Vince McMahon had at one time been the most powerful force ruling over the most successful wrestling organization of all time. Many of the industry's biggest names not only passed through the doors of the former WWF/E but also were created there. Nurtured. Grew into forces that in some cases, transcended the entire industry. But once said industry was shattered to pieces, the former owner, chairman, and evil incarnate himself (to some) vanished into thin air. His re-emergence at Sea-Tac airport, under a heavy disguise but unmistakably him, has led a number of people to believe that he is the mastermind behind the burgeoning wrestling company that has filed for a business license and seems to be creating a stronghold in a small area of North America. Word is, he has his own finances mostly intact, but he also has financial backing from a faceless entity. Which has led many to speculate on some of the biggest names in the industries history and if they may be setting up shop to perform in the Northwest. More to come soon as we unravel this mystery. Hopefully, we can locate Mr. McMahon and get a few words from him ...

    Thanks, guys. And jpchicago, I really hope they were wrong.

    Another great show full of tremendous wrestling action. I think matches 4 and 5 were the two I would be all over. I am still learning some of the guys on your roster but some of the names are now sticking out and becoming more familiar as I read your shows. I like Ken Shamrock's confidence that he is going to run the tournament, but some of these guys seem stiff as hell and might have other thoughts. Should be interesting to see who emerges.

    So long Tenryu, we barely knew you! Nice sendoff for a great talent. I am really following Mikey Whipwreck's underdog storyline and I like the way it is going. He can win, no doubt, but can he win when it really counts. I don't think York and Matthews had Stan Hansen in mind for a fight. I wouldn't have lol. Your shows trade match quantity for match quality. You strike a good balance between pleasing the smarks while still maintaining just enough sports entertainment feel to keep more casual fans interested.

    Hey guys. I know I have been a pretty prolific producer (alliteration!) so far in our game, but I just found out yesterday that my dog (who is my best friend and beloved kid for the last 12 years) might have a tumor on her thyroid that could be cancerous. We are going to see a veterinary oncologist but my appointment is not until next Friday. This news devastated me, but I plan to try to keep some semblance of normalcy and routine until that day, so it may or may not effect my output here. But in case I slow down with my shows that is why. Also applies to my feedback for all of you and your incredible promotions. I pride myself on giving feedback to everyone on each show, but that may or may not slow down, too.

    Pacific Northwest Wrestling

    Pacific Northwest Wrestling Episode 5 9-13-00, Morse Event Center, Eugene, OR (1,203 Sellout) The opening strains of “No Chance” are the backdrop for Tony Schiavone to welcome us to Pacific Northwest Wrestling as well as to welcome the majority (storyline) owner of the company, Vince McMahon. Schiavone offers a refresher on the Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart feud over their portion of ownership in the company, as well as Vince McMahon's continuing vendetta against Kane and Paul Bearer in which he has Albert as his hired gun. McMahon struts to the ring waving his arms as only he can, entering the ring with the smuggest of smug grins. McMahon: (To the mixed response) Yes, yes, thank you, thank you, I appreciate the warm welcome. To MY show being put on by MY company. The world has been waiting with baited breath as we have watched Bret Hart and Hollywood Hulk Hogan spewing fantasies about one of them besting the other to achieve an equal partnership with me in this company. But the fact is that I am the controlling owner of this company, and therefore, I am able to dictate and have final say over the terms of their match if it is to be sanctioned by Pacific Northwest Wrestling, unless they both disagree with my ruling, and then we have a stalemate. But imagine that, those two getting on the same page right now. (Laughs his smarmy laugh). So yes, as principal owner of this company, I am now officially announcing that Pacific Northwest Wrestling will sanction that match, and I will determine the site and venue and event in which it will take place. I will also be adding a further stipulation to be announced next week. Now then, on to other news. A number of people have addressed me as far as championships go. Believe me when I tell you there will be champions in PNW. But instead of rushing to put a belt on someone in order to create rivalries, we are allowing our roster to shake itself out. Rivalries are being created on an organic basis, and we do not want to crown our champions lightly, or give someone credit for being a champion after having wrestled one match in our company, or even 5 matches. Our titles will be earned through blood, sweat, and tears, and will be given to wrestlers who have fought long and hard for the right to receive such a distinction as being our champion. So in early spring of next year, we will have the biggest show in the history of professional wrestling. By the end of winter, we will have seen our talent sufficiently to make a valid determination of who among them are the ones that deserve a chance to become champion. And make no mistake, whoever emerges holding the title belts will have earned it the hard way. And that is MY final decision for MY company. And one final thing. Kane and Paul Bearer have survived the challenges I have set forth for them. So next week, Kane will be running the gauntlet. And if he does not survive to the end, if he loses in any way, including count out or disqualification, then Kane and Paul Bearer are FIRED from Pacific Northwest Wrestling! Now, hit MY music. No Chance fires back up as an arrogant McMahon marches back up the aisle and Schiavone recaps the announcements here tonight, focusing on the championship situation and pitching it hard as this is why PNW is the best wrestling federation right now, with the titles meaning something, and the rivalries being real and not invented. McMahon stands at the entryway as Albert's music hits and McMahon gives him a pep talk as he heads to the ring for our first match of the night. Handi-cap Match: Albert vs. Van Hammer and Horace Despite being fodder for the monster heel, Horace and Hammer (Double H?) get a tiny bit of shine after regrouping from an initial onslaught from Albert. But it does not last long as the man known in the past as ol' 8 3/8 recovers and decapitates them both with a double clothesline. A handful of power moves and Albert bodyslams Hammer on top of a prone Horace and pins them both, much to McMahon's delight up at the top of the entrance ramp. Winner by pinfall at 4:02 … Albert!! We cut to the back where we see The Maestro and Symphony leading Shawn Stasiak and Glacier through a corridor. Maestro is talking them up, coaching them that this is their chance to put the off pitch notes of their former selves away and create beautiful harmony as a duet. Stasiak and Glacier seem to be buying in, a contrast to the dubious looks they had when Maestro first recruited them. ~Commercial~ We return directly to our next match. The Varsity Club (Rick Steiner and Mike Rotunda) vs. Shawn Stasiak and Glacier (w/The Maestro and Symphony) On commentary, Schiavone presents this as a great opportunity for Stasiak and Glacier, making their television debut as a team, to make a statement in the tag team division, while also reviewing The Varsity Club's issues with Al Snow and Head. Schiavone also says Snow was supposed to be in this match with a partner against VC but when he was unable to attend the event, Maestro signed up his charges for the chance. In the ring, Stasiak and Glacier start off slow as VC begin a systematic dissection, but then they begin to work together, showing some decently timed double team moves and cohesion. Maestro is making a pest of himself at ringside as well, and VC ignore Symphony's attempts to distract them. After a couple hope spots, Steiner gets the hot tag and wipes out Stasiak and Glacier, ultimately leading to Rotunda returning and getting Glacier to tap to a Boston Crab. Winners by submission at 7:41 … The Varsity Club!! We cut to footage from last week's show when Booker T. was leaving the locker room where he had been conversing with DDP and Kimberly for his match and was ambushed by Jeff Jarrett with a guitar shot. The clip highlights the long pause before DDP and Kimberly come out to check on him, allowing JJ to get away and go wrestle the match for Booker. We return to DDP taping up for his match later tonight in the locker room with Kimberly, and Booker walks in. DDP: Hey Book, what's up, you all right after last week? Booker: (Overtly suspicious) Yeah, I'm a'ight. How you feeling, you feel like you might have a slow reaction time out there tonight? DDP: And what is that supposed to mean? Booker: What it means is I thought you had my back. Seems like Jeff Jarrett got my back with his guitar and I don't know where my “friend” was until he was long gone. DDP: Hey man, cool it, it wasn't like that at all. We heard something and weren't sure what it was, but we got out there, bro, quick as we could. Jarrett is fast, he struck and dipped. Don't let him play you like this. Booker: (Still suspicious, but decides to trust his friend and offers a fist bump, which DDP reciprocates and then pats him on the shoulder.) All right, then. We good. Good luck tonight. DDP nods and as Booker leaves, DDP and Kimberly exchange a glance that says something, but not what. ~Commercial~ We return to Tony Schiavone reviewing how The Headbangers have tried and tried to get in the APA's good graces and have bungled it up every time. That brings us to our next match as this rivalry slowly percolates and is the comedy foil feud for now in PNW. Ron Simmons vs. Thrasher This one is pretty much the expected formula, Simmons is dominant at first, and Thrasher battles back but can't quite get a decently length segment going. Oh, there was also the Headbangers asking for a handshake at the beginning and the APA refusing it. Schiavone emphasizes how the Headbangers did get their shot in a couple weeks ago, but that largely, the APA has put them down with extreme prejudice in every segment. Thrasher has opportunities to cheat for an advantage, but he and Mosh are over doing playing by the rules. Mosh goes over to talk to Bradshaw on the outside, and Bradshaw is annoyed, but Mosh is pushy. Bradshaw finally cold cocks him, and Simmons is distracted watching the outside shenanigans. It allows Thrasher to take advantage and attack him from behind, finally getting a little heat segment, but ultimately is just pisses Simmons off and Thrasher is caught with a sudden spinebuster to end the match. Winner by pinfall at 6:02 … Ron Simmons!! After the match, the APA put a little stomping on the Headbangers and then pour a couple beers over them. Insult to injury. But the camera focuses on the beaten Headbangers lying in the ring, and they have really pissed off looks on their faces, staring at the APA as they head through the curtain. We cut to Vince McMahon sitting at his desk in his office. He is on the phone with someone, discussing how he is finally going to rid himself of Kane next week, and how he has a foolproof plan. Suddenly, the lights go out and McMahon angrily yells for his assistant. We hear the door open and close and McMahon starts to light into her about the power being out. But suddenly the room fills with red light, and reveals Kane is standing directly behind McMahon, who is oblivious as all he sees is Paul Bearer standing in front of his desk, nodding and grinning and “Ohhhhhhh Yesssss”ing. McMahon starts to seethe and berates Bearer for parlor tricks and that he won't stand for it, and he is about to send Kane a message. Vince stands up menacingly, as Paul Bearer acts terrified, but as Vince pushes his chair back, it runs into something awfully solid. Vince adopts his classic “Oh shit” expression, complete with the adam's apple bobbing swallow. He slowly turns around, and puts his hands up as he sees Kane right on top of him. Vince begins to beg, but Kane shoots his hand out, and goozles McMahon, who looks like he is crapping himself. But then the red lights go out, and a moment later, the lights come back on normally revealing McMahon in his office by himself. His assistant then walks in and asks what he wanted. McMahon turns to her and angrily yells at her to get out. He is seething as we fade out to commercial. ~Commercial~ We return directly to the ring for our next match. Crash Division Match: Doink the Clown vs. Ron Harris Tony Schiavone pushes on commentary how the Crash Division has really taken off, and how Brian Knobbs and Balls Mahoney are the frontrunners in the division as both remain undefeated. He points out that Doink is a relative newcomer and reminds viewers of his haunted promos and says he has made himself known to the others and is really wrestling with a nasty chip on his shoulder. The match itself is elementary as Doink and Harris use the usual chairs and trash cans, but in addition, Doink adds “some kind of acid water” (as Schiavone calls it) from the flower on his lapel and a loaded boot, which when he takes it off, reveals another boot underneath, and there is a funny moment when he is using both the loaded boot in his hand to hit Harris up high and the loaded boot on his foot to kick him down low. Harris gets some offense in, but this is a Doink feature, and he wins after knocking Harris upside the head with a 2x4 and then putting on the stump puller. Winner by submission at 5:12 … Doink the Clown!! We cut to the back where we see Billy Kidman and Lash Leroux are in conversation with Bret Hart. Bret is giving them both encouragement as up and comers, and is telling Kidman how he could be the future of this business if he keeps working at it and stays the course. Chris Jericho happens to be walking by and hears this as Bret shakes Leroux and Kidman's hands and leaves the scene, and Leroux leaves as well. Jericho: Excuse me, did I just hear someone say that you are the future of this business? Listen up, Junior, you are wrestling in Pacific Northwest Jericho now, which means you can ride my coattails to get as close to the top as you can, but ultimately, you will be right behind me. I am the present and the future of this business. Get used to it. Kidman: All due respect, Chris, but I've taken you to the limit a few times since we've been here. It's only a matter of time as I am improving day by day, and your spot is the one I want. It's what I crave, it's the reason I wake up every … Jericho: (Cutting him off with a “talk to the hand” gesture): Calm down, Willie Kidman. I have heard it a million times, perseverance, dedication, fight to the last, blah, blah, blahbity blah. I lived and breathed that in the old WCW and look where it got me. It got me Ralphus. So Mr. Nice Guy is gone. I have the spot I have here because I am the greatest pure in ring talent that EEEEEEEEver set foot in Pacific Northwest Jericho. You are second fiddle. Fodder to my greatness. So don't ever let me hear you talk about being the best ever agayn! As Jericho puffs himself up and walks off, Kidman mutters “It's called Pacific Northwest Wrestling” and offscreen Jericho yells “I heard that!” Kidman shakes his head and walks off. ~Commercial~ We return to the ring for our next match, and it features the debut of David Flair to PNW. Schiavone refers to him as a “legacy” wrestler while carefully not mentioning The Nature Boy by name or any other identifiers. We also feature the television debut of Dave Taylor, whom Schiavone pimps as a true tough guy, a no nonsense English brawler with skills. Dave Taylor vs. David Flair The match is pretty much a joke. Flair struggles to mount any kind of offense as Dave Taylor just toys with him. Flair lands a couple punches and a forearm but otherwise this is all Taylor. After softening him up, Taylor lands a brutal European uppercut and that is all she wrote. Winner by pinfall at 2:44 … Dave Taylor!! After the match, Taylor stops by the announce desk where Schiavone is starting to talk about the main event, but Taylor interrupts him and tells him that he has come to the Northwest to tame The Beast and no one, not even Tony, better get in his way. Schiavone is a little shaken up but soldiers on. Our main event is a huge one as we have our first ever televised 6-man tag match in PNW. Schiavone sells the big time brewing rivalry between monster teams Kronik and Rikishi and Haku, reiterates DDP/Booker/Jarrett stuff and touches on how Big Boss Man has been mentoring Bull Buchanan. 6-man Tag Team Match: Diamond Dallas Page (w/Kimberly) and Rikishi and Haku vs. Kronik and Bull Buchanan (w/ Big Boss Man) With so many heavy hitters in there, this match is almost pure power, although Rikishi and Haku are both very underrated workers and they get some good heat segments with DDP playing face in peril as only he can, complete with his penchant for perseverance and intestinal fortitude, which Schiavone plays up, calling him a survivor. Everyone gets some time in, but the Kronik and Rikishi/Haku time together is limited to brawling and throwing soup bones mostly. Buchanan holds his own, but is over matched by the end, with Boss Man railing at him to perform better from ringside. The match breaks down and ends in complete chaos as Kronik and Rikishi and Haku are in a full pier 6 brawl outside the ring. Boss Man gets taken out in the crossfire, and as Bull, who had a big advantage over DDP, goes to help him, Boss Man screams at him to get back in the ring. Bull does, and walks directly into a Diamond Cutter and gets pinned. Winners by pinfall at 10:52 … Diamond Dallas Page, Rikishi, and Haku!! After the match, with the two heavyweight teams battling up the aisle and Boss Man berating Buchanan for losing his focus as they walk past the brawling behemoths (which provides a kind of funny contrast), Jeff Jarrett flies in from the audience, wielding his guitar. Kimberly sees him and warns Page, and Booker comes down the ramp at the same time. Booker slides in the ring just in time for Page to heed Kimberly's warning and duck, and Booker takes the guitar shot. Jarrett smiles and nods at Kimberly, who looks appalled, and DDP gives chase but Jarrett is back through the crowd. Kimberly and DDP come to Booker's aid and a pissed off Booker shoves DDP away. Kimberly is trying to make peace as the two men argue and we fade out.

    Lol I ignored that and just figured they decided on a name change and went with it.

    RAGE Wrestling 2000

    I liked the ending of the tag title match a lot, the visual of Henry obliterating Steiner with a clothesline followed immediately by the spear on Bagwell was a pretty cool sequence. Sometimes the simple ones are the best ones. The first women's division in RAGE is here, and that is a big enough story, but the question now is who is going to present a challenge for Chyna? The coming weeks will tell, I have a feeling. I did not like the Untouchables chances going into that match, but they certainly proved that the numbers matter and Triple H is known as the cerebral assassin for a reason. Flair taking the fall was probably the right thing to do and was very generous of him to give those guys a rub. Fun match. I feel like the pairing of Gail Kim with Misawa and Kobashi is going to stay in the upper midcard for awhile. I like it. Wow! HBK! Talk about a guy with history with Triple H, and it seems the initial reaction from The Game is less than happy, but the end of the match makes me slightly suspicious. I look forward to seeing how all of this unfolds, including Kobashi seeking revenge on Chono. Awesome main event!

    Pro Wrestling International

    The whole opening segment made me think Foley was a little naive. The way Kurt Angle has forced himself into every situation so far to this point, I think he should be taking more of a hard line stance with him. And he didn't, and Kurt made him pay, which was exactly what he said he would do. If nothing else, Angle is a determined man of his word! I like the role reversal of the Impact Players living up to their name. It's usually those chasing the belts that go on the attack, but the Impact Players doing a pre-emptive strike is pretty badass, and shows they take the threat seriously. Sting/Mutoh is one of my all time favorite feuds that went on for so long. I like that it is still alive here. I am particularly interested to see where you take Dustin Rhodes. I love the idea of Luger and Windham getting the band back together, and I hope this feud with the Outsiders percolates for awhile, because I think you can really get a lot out of it. Although I will say I am not sure which team is the heel team, it sounds like you are leaning towards Luger/Windham, but I actually like the ambiguity of it. I could even see both teams having support from different schools of fans. Man, Kurt Angle is just running amok in PWI! Good main event until the interference, but I am glad to see The Rock put Angle down. Someone needs to stand up to him and do it effectively, and we know The Rock won't take his shit. Good show with a lot of interesting things brewing!

    U-COSMOS

    We all have our own different styles of shows and presentation, and I have to say U-Cosmos is the most purely wrestling driven promotion we have. There is a very no-nonsense approach to your shows, and you continue to develop your characters primarily through their in-ring behaviors. That is not neccessarily an easy thing to do. Kudos.

    Another great show with interesting combinations and good wrestling. I am really intrigued by the Mike Awesome promo considering Stephanie and Rhino are making themselves at home with the title in RAGE right now. I think Tanaka and Kamala are one of my favorite tag teams in all of our federations.

    Pacific Northwest Wrestling

    Pacific Northwest Wrestling Episode 4 Rose Garden Arena, Portland, OR (9,996) 9-6-00 We are welcome in by Tony Schiavone and just as he is about to continue his intro, Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) kicks in and Hollywood Hulk Hogan begins to air guitar his way down to the ring to a mixed but mostly positive response. Schiavone recaps that Hogan is a 25% owner of PNW along with Bret Hart also owning 25%, and that last week Bret challenged Hogan to a match, winner buys the losers share for $1. He also reminds us that Bret has been claiming for weeks now that Hogan had always ducked him. Hogan enters the ring, cups the ear in a more Hollywood Hogan style than red and yellow style, and gets a mic and we are off. Hogan: So Bret Hart wants to challenge Hollywood Hulk Hogan, huh? A winner takes all match. Brother, I have been in so many main events in my life, that this one will just be the next chapter in the legend that is Hulk Hogan. So I accept. (Cheers). But I want to address a couple things. Bret Hart likes to claim I was ducking him. Let me tell you something, Bret Hart, I have wrestled massive giants, King Kong in a cage, the best technical and most 'Savage' wrestler you could imagine, turncoats, legends, rookies, and everyone else in between. And you know something, brother, every one of them was staring at the lights as the ref counted 1 … 2 … 3. So Bret, your little idea of me ducking you doesn't carry any water, dude. I faced, and beat, the best there ever was, is, and will be, and you will be the next prey to Hulkamania (cheers for the old school reference). But here's the thing, Bret. I didn't duck you. I was waiting for you to climb to the level of Hulk Hogan, brother. And you did good, Bret, you got yourself a couple world title runs once I was out of the picture. You headlined some shows, even wrestled a few top guys. But you didn't become a legend like me. You made it to the top of this business, credit where it's due, and you are a great wrestler. But I transcended this business and made it what it is today. You can't even approach me, dude. So you want a match with Hulk Hogan? Put our share of this little company on the line? You got it. Just don't try to claim anything about being screwed when you sign your rights over to me. So … Portland … Whatcha gonna do … when Hulk Hogan becomes the half owner of this company and runs wild on youuuuuuu! Voodoo Child hits and Schiavone sells the Hart/Hogan match hard on commentary. Crash Division Match: Al Snow vs. Horace Horace, is Horace Hogan, but there is no mention of this made on commentary or by the announcers. Al Snow is at his most insane here, carrying on dialogues with Head, which are the only times that Horace manages to get an advantage. The use of weaponry is limited to chairs, a rake, and a microphone for the ever popular noise it generates when jammed into someone's head. Horace sells great for Snow, who wins it with a crucifix of all moves, while Schiavone sells that a Crash Division match can end in any number of surprising ways. For good measure, as Horace is starting to get up after the match, Snow gives him a Head shot which comically sends him over the top rope. Winner by pinfall at 7:12 … Al Snow!! ~Commercial~ We return to Tony Schiavone informing us that Vince McMahon will be responding to the exchange between Hogan and Hart next week from the show in Eugene, OR. We head straight to the ring for our next match. Bradshaw (w/Ron Simmons) vs. Mosh (w/Thrasher) This match is just here to keep the ongoing backstage shenanigans between the APA and Headbangers front and center. There has been no clear face/heel delineation in this feud so far, but the APA get more cheers for their actions. It is pretty much paint by numbers, Bradshaw gets the early advantage, Mosh takes advantage of an error and help from Thrasher to get his time on top, and it ends with a sudden lariat by Bradshaw that comes out of nowhere. Afterwards, the Headbangers offer a handshake to which the APA answer with a Simmons spinebuster and Bradshaw cold cock. Winner by pinfall at 5:49 … Bradshaw!! We cut to the locker room where we see Bull Buchanan getting ready. Big Bossman walks in and mentions that Bull has a big match tonight against a formidable opponent in Diamond Dallas Page. Bossman reminds Bull that he offered to mentor him, but Bull again hesitates. Bossman starts to hype up DDP big time, and finally Bull blows a gasket and gets in his face. Bossman just smiles and says that is what he is looking for. We cut back to the ring for our next match. Dan Severn vs. Van Hammer A little tougher competition for Dan Severn who has steamrolled everyone he has faced under two minutes so far. Or so the bookers thought. Severn and Hammer lock up, but Hammer breaks it and attempts to land a couple blows. Severn blocks them all and then does a single leg take down of Hammer who looks stunned and starts to try to get up but Severn is on him with a stiff side headlock. Hammer makes it to the ropes, but the moment he lets go, Severn locks on a dragon sleeper in one fluid motion. That is all she wrote. Winner by knockout at 2:02 … Dan Severn!! Schiavone pimps Severn as an unstoppable beast as we go to break. ~Commercial~ We return directly to the ring for our next matchup. The Varsity Club vs. Greg Rink and Jason Hill This is a systematic squash as Rick Steiner and Mike Rotunda use amateur wrestling techniques to dismantle the jobbers. Rink actually has a little bit of a chain wrestling segment with Rotunda but it doesn't last long. Mid-match, Al Snow and Head make their way back down to the ring, and are engaged in a dialogue in which it appears Head is claiming to have lost something from earlier in the night at ringside. They argue as they search around ringside, much to Varsity Club's annoyance. Schiavone reminds us that Snow attacked Varsity Club backstage last week. Rotunda comes down to confront snow as Steiner pins Rink in the ring. They get into a shoving match, and Steiner comes down from behind and levels Snow. Rotunda laughs while Steiner stomps on Snow. Rotunda kicks Head, enraging a beaten down Snow. The VC walk back up the ramp victorious in more ways than one. Winners by pinfall at 3:38 … The Varsity Club!! We cut to a dark carnival funhouse, the same one we saw in the inaugural show when Doink the Clown cut his first chilling promo. We go past decrepit rides covered in vines and other ruinous elements of a creepy theme park and center on the funhouse and the camera enters. A huge spider crawls past and Doink comes around a corner and looks surprised to see us. Doink: Oh! So you came back for a little more fun time, did you? You see what I've done? I've left them guessing! (Laughs uproariously). They don't know whose side I'm on, or where I might show up, or who I might … tell a joke to! The fun has only just begun. Now you see, ol' Doink here has decided to set up shop in this Crash Division that they came up with. How crazy. What an opportunity for me to … wait for it … clown around! (laughs uproariously again, but then suddenly stops and adopts a wicked and evil face that would make Pennywise proud, while also lowering his voice an octave or two). But here's one you won't have to wait too long for. All these dangerous men in the Crash Division are going to end up a shell of the men they are, while I will be the last man laughing. (Now breaks out into an eerie wicked laugh, and then stops suddenly and stares into the camera menacingly until it fades out and we cut back to Schiavone). We return to the ring for our next match. Kronik vs. Kyle Staples and Brett Titan This is simply another of a line of obliterations to keep Kronik and Rikishi and Haku as strong as possible. No appearance from the islanders this time but Schiavone puts over the absolute dominance of both teams on commentary and alludes to a reckoning coming when they finally meet head on. Winners by pinfall at 3:14 … Kronik!! ~Commercial~ As Tony Schiavone talks up Booker T. for our next match, we cut to Booker lacing up his boots in the locker room. DDP is there with Kimberly and they are pumping Book up even though he is ready to face a jobber. So obviously, this is going somewhere. As Booker starts to head out of the locker room, DDP calls him back, telling him he forgot something. The moment Booker turns his back on the corridor and starts to head back into the locker room, Jeff Jarrett clobbers him from behind with the guitar, taking him out. After a beat, DDP and Kimberly rush out to check on Booker, but Double J is long gone. Jarrett is then seen coming down the aisle and declares he is taking Booker's spot. Jeff Jarrett vs. Bob Goss Completely one sided squash as a cocky Jarrett gives Goss zip, zero zilch. He ends it with the figure four, making Goss tap. Winner by submission at 1:58 … Jeff Jarrett!! Tony Schiavone talks up Big Bossman mentoring Bull Buchanan as we go straight to our next match. Diamond Dallas Page (w/Kimberly) vs. Bull Buchanan Bossman doesn't accompany Bull down to the ring for this one, and DDP carries Bull to a pretty solid match. The story is Buchanan's power constantly keeps Page from getting a long stretch on top, but Page's plucky resilience and dogged determination keeps him going. After a lot of back and forth in which Bull has the advantage for roughly 75% of the match, he seems about ready to put Page away, but Page hits a sudden Diamond Cutter and that is that. Winner by pinfall at 6:16 ... Diamond Dallas Page!! ~Commercial~ Before we get to our main event, Tony Schiavone recaps that next week we will be hearing from Vince McMahon regarding a few things, but most pressing, the issue brewing between Hulk Hogan and Bret Hart in regards to ownership of the company. He recaps that Hogan has accepted Bret's challenge for a match to determine who buys out the other for $1, in Canadian if Bret wins, in American if Hogan wins. He also pimps Chris Jericho vs. Billy Kidman next week and that Al Snow wants to issue a special challenge to the Varsity Club. Schiavone finishes up by reviewing the simmering feud going on between Kane and Vince McMahon's chosen one to dispatch him, Albert, and how both men have looked absolutely indestructible. Albert has won several handicap matches against jobbers, while Kane won Hell's Battle Royal and looks to send Albert a message here tonight. Handi-cap Match: Kane vs. The Harris Brothers Paul Bearer emphasizes before the match that Albert better be watching this. It's one thing to take out two local no-names, but Kane rises to the challenge of a formidable duo. The match itself is rather paint by numbers for a handi-cap match. The Harris Brothers work hard at both putting Kane over without making themselves look too weak. They get double-team advantages over Kane, but cannot seem to put him down or hurt him for any reasonable length of time. The story portrays Kane as an unstoppable force, they can slow him down but can't put him down. He finally wins with a double goozle into a chokeslam on Ron and a big boot to Don. Kane hits the tombstone on Ron, and Don gets in one last hope attack from behind, but he is quickly caught and tombstoned right next to his brother, and Kane gets the pin. Winner by pinfall at 6:22 … Kane!! After the match, Albert seemingly out of nowhere storms into the ring and clobbers Kane from behind. The momentum sends Kane tumbling through the ropes to the floor, where he lands hard but quickly gets up. Albert picks up the remains of the Harris Brothers and gives them each a headbutt before tossing them out. Paul Bearer looks concerned and Kane steps up to the apron as the two behemoths have a faceoff as we fade out.

    RAGE Wrestling 2000

    Great opening setting up next week before we even get to the action here tonight. High Society X is a great faction, but they certainly seem to be in a little bit of trouble here. Kip Allen Frey made major waves. Damn, Rhyno got nasty with Dean Malenko. Idk if Chris Benoit is really going to want a piece of that! Rhyno is looking scary as hell and pretty strong right now. He was a good choice for this title, it doesn't look like it will be easy to pry it off of him. A women's division coming to RAGE. I am curious to see which direction you take it in, more like today's or more like the era. That was a great main event, and I like that you are featuring the Japanese contingent in RAGE in such a prominent role. Gotta say I am pumped for next week's show already!

    It is a testament to your writing style that I actually, after the second round, chose Takaiwa as my darkhorse to win the whole thing. You write for a lot of wrestlers I know in name only, but represent who they are efficiently and make it easy to like/dislike them (which is what any good promoter does) and develop a feel for who they are. I think this is by far your best show yet. Every match was compelling and captivating.

    I like Rodman's declaration at the end of the press conference. This tournament should be decided strictly on the merits of wrestling, and it will add real legitimacy to BCP if it works out that way. Pretty good 1st round of the tournament. A good mix of styles. I am curious what the hell Onryo was doing. I am thinking it was a work but not 100% on that so that character has already piqued my interest. I can't decide how I feel about Ultimo Guerrero, either. Time will tell as this thing progresses. Round 2 is already looking pretty compelling!

    U-COSMOS

    And the long road to the U-Cosmos Crown is off and running! Good show, your matches always have drama and almost always have some ambiguity as to who is going to win. Let's hope Tully has it in him to keep Lesnar's temper under control. I wonder if a seed is being planted here.

    RAGE Presents: SUDDEN IMPACT 2000!

    Damn, time for the big show already! Idk if I am ready! That was a great tag team turmoil gauntlet thing. I will poke you a bit and say that was a cheap way to get the two Japanese teams out of the tournament lol, but it worked to bring us the great ending with E&C and the Dudleyz! I was torn on who would win, either would be good, and I like the way you had it end. It kept the Dudleyz strong and showed E&C are crafty. This was a good display of your tag division, which is a little top heavy, but a fun group of teams. Man ... those Rage Rules Match rules sounds oddly familiar ... like someone else's Crash Division. All good, different names, same idea, and we both put our own spin on it! I didn't see Viscera coming as Flair's opponent. The way you built up Viscera makes him the perfect guy in this position. I now see the method to your madness. But holy shit, that AA appearance had to blow the roof off the arena with the pop it got. I know it got me excited as all hell. The loyal brother coming back to Flair's side. I loved it. The way you built the guys up, all 5 had a legit chance at Ultimate Survival but I figured Rhino or Benoit were going to win, and I picked Benoit. But I like the Rhino choice better anyway. And then damn, Dean Malenko wins the runner up slot! Great bluff positioning Benoit so strongly and putting the other guys over. You caught me off guard and I think Malenko has a shot to topple Rhino. I am SO happy Mark Henry caught Bagwell and destroyed his dumbass with the WSS. I was so afraid Steiner and Bagwell were going to win that. The main event was great, and I think you put the right guy over here. Undertaker is great chasing a smarmy asshole Triple H as champion. This is going to be a fun ride! This was an awesome show, up to your usual standards that I have come to expect over our years of writing together. You never fail to bring it for the big shows. Every match was interesting and meant something, either as a blowoff or continuation of a feud I want to see continued. Can't ask for much more than that.

    Pro Wrestling International

    First off, never apologize for no pics. I haven't used any yet, and I might some day, but your words do the drawing just fine. First line in, and I was hooked by the main event. Angle and Nash going at it is really big considering the build, and both guys have been positioned strongly but I can't see Angle losing, so I am curious to see where you go with this (I read these shows as a stream of consciousness thing and make my comments as I go so I haven't read who won yet!) Midnight Bodies would have made a great name for a raunch flick lol, but I love the Heavenly Express concept. I always thought the Heavenly Bodies were such a great team saddled with a bit of a crap gimmick. I like this move. And almost going down to the up and coming rooks is typical of a Midnight Express match. Great work here. Wow what a big win for D-Lo. I sense a team-up happening from a couple former Horsemen, though. D-Lo might want to find some backup! Great win for Kurt Angle and he is smarmy and an asshole in doing it. And of course, cheated his ass off. But he still looks good in the win. Kurt Angle really makes his statement ending the main event prematurely. This show was very Rock and Kurt Angle heavy, but you achieved a really good balance and started building up your midcard strongly. Nice work.

    Can-Am Pro Wrestling

    Yeah, for me, I am still working on getting my feet on the ground with PNW before I start doing anything on the outside, just a matter of timing. I like the idea, though.

    Can-Am Pro Wrestling

    Another solid show, which is impressive considering the card reshuffling. Interesting match for Erik Watts to want to get a peek at. I still want to see where you are going with Jannetty. In a previous fed I ran, I was going to give him a pretty big push but it never materialized. I like the dichotomy between the two tag matches. Completely different styles in each. And I think both would be really fun to watch.
