  1. Angle is out for an interview with brother Eric. Kurt talks about the Survivor Series screwjob and he is pleased to announce that the screwjob was avoided this year and for once the good guy prevailed. Taker comes out and beats up Eric before chokeslamming Kurt from the stage through a table at ringside. E&C meet with Foley backstage and even bring out a play urn. They want Mick to apologize on their behalf. Mick instead makes a handicap match with them vs Taker. Taker receives the urn but doesn’t appreciate the gesture. This is the third iteration of Taker vs E&C we have seen so far this year and it was the most frustrating of them all. E&C have proven to be more than comedy players but it seems the company based off the heels of the Conquistador and stuff with Foley, is really doubling down on that aspect and their credibility is going out the window as a result. E&C do have the advantage for the first minute as well they should in a match like this. Edge accidently spears Christian and Taker gives him the Last Ride to pick up the win in three minutes. The crowd heat says a lot here as it was pretty nonexistent. Keep these guys apart WWF. ¼*
  2. Too Cool feels sooooo played out here. That being said, match is fairly decent and plays off a quick formula of Too Cool getting a good bit of offense, a quick FIP sequence and then the finish. I liked Christophers clothesline from the top before he makes the hot tag to Hotty. The worm is still really over and gets a nice response. After the worm, Edge hits the spear and it looks good here and violent. Christian brings in a chair and that picks up the cheap win for E&C. *1/2
  3. Funny segment to set this all up with an interview segment backstage with Conquistadors and E&C. We then cut to another backstage segment where Foley wants to see Edge. When Edge returns, we discover the Dudleys sent Christian through a table and with his hurt shoulder, Edge will have to go about it on his own. Cut to the match and here come the Conquistadors rolling around. One punches back at Edge hardly and he starts speaking English to the South American duo. Something is awry and then all of a sudden we get a twist of fate and Swantom for the win for the Conquistadors. Foley appears at the ramp and explains that the cameras were rolling when E&C admitted to the patsy Conquistadors they were dressed up as them last night. He allows their title change to stand but also awards tonights match to the Hardy's making them the tag champs. Fun conclusion to this portion of the angle. *
  4. Conquistadors seem a lot like E&C here. Hmmm…. I will say that while King has been rough at points on commentary this year, he was funny here having a fun back and forth with Ross. The action as fine and mainly revolved around the shtick of the Conquistadors. They end up sneaking out the win and quickly escape. I liked that the Dudley’s went for the mask when given the opportunity. *3/4
  5. E&C start out making fun of MTV. Tazz has some intel that they are the Conquistadors. It is still really awkward watching them watch the match on a big screen. This was a quick hits tag match. E&C have the heat but it only goes for one minute and Too Cool is able to run through all of their offense. Even the crowd is reacting well to Too Cool still. Scotty hits the worm but gets speared by Edge. The Conquistadors run out to distract E&C allowing Too Cool to get the upset with a roll up. *
  6. E&C are outside and heeling it up now. They charged a little boy for an autograph which is a topical 2017 twitter topic and then jump in front of a fan for a picture. Awesome stuff. The match itself is solid. It felt like E&C were still getting their legs under them as heels but they took the template of southern style formula and kept it throughout much of the match. I have liked the interplay between King and JR bickering back and forth throughout this match. The officiating was a little too inconsistent for me making it seem like he was really against the Hardy’s instead of having to make a judgement call that just went against the face. Hardy offense builds to those big explosive spots and we get that with the Swantom and the Twist of Fate only for Edge to come in with the ring bell and causing the DQ. Dudley Boyz come in and lay the 3D on Christian before retrieving a table. Edge goes through that. A good match to see the development of these guys without relying on the gimmicks. **3/4
  7. This being AJW cage rules is much easier approachable for me in current day than the last time I watched this when it happened in real time. Jeff is out of the match early but remains a big factor throughout the match integrating himself when he could. Matt became very sympathetic and did a blade job. Edge was much better here than in TLC and overall this is probably the most impressive E&C performance in ring as a unit IMO. The finish with the whisper in the wind and Lita’s rana really built up the Hardy’s and based on past history, the crowd was waiting for the rug to be pulled out from under them. That never happened and the pop for the Hardy’s winning was great and felt extremely genuine. **** (7.8)
  8. I don't know what to think of this. I really enjoyed the Tables Match in January because it was an actual violent fight that made sense. This was more just a bunch of people jumping off of stuff. It was cool seeing a more primitive version of the TLC matches and it's hard not to respect the effort involved, but it's just stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. stunt. Gets old after a while.
  9. Edge and Christian do the generic thing of bringing out their opponents dressed as old men this time. That is getting pretty played out in WWF by this point but this was ok enough I suppose. The six man is made by Foley for later and the Hardys and E&C brawl. The match itself is only four minutes long but I think they have done a good job at building up X Pac’s credibility. He gains the victory here again and looks like he belongs in the match vs Jericho. ¾*
  10. Kane is out for commentary showing more personality from him as I can’t recall him doing something like this before. Lawler is disposed from Tazz earlier. Taker challenges Kane from his bike. This match did a lot for E&C. Just a few months earlier, Edge was getting jobbed out to Taker in a singles match in three minutes. Here they are seen as a tag threat and work over Taker as FIP for 5 minutes or so until he makes the tag to Rock. The E&C on top segment was also smothering and kept building properly. Benoit runs out and attacks Taker after he tags in Rock. Rock hits the Rock Bottom on Christian but Edge makes the save. Edge then pastes Rock with a chair that gets a close nearfall. Kane pulls out the referee and brawls with Taker on the floor and E&C give Rock the conchairto. That allows them to get a pin on Rock even though it was tainted. Big moment for them and a fun as hell match overall. ***1/4 (6.5)
  11. Jericho does one of his more memorable and classic promos where he inserts Benoit’s face onto different situations including a jackass. Benoit comes out all serious and presents a picture of his own with Jericho in the crossface. E&C come out for the six man and they have a dig at Ricky Williams and his fumble. The New Orleans Saints in the front row do not look amused. Quick match but a way to preview what is coming up on Sunday. I did like the chair being thwarted by the Hardy’s as it felt like E&C had gotten the upper hand for most of the build. E&C do remain on top as the segment ends against the Hardy’s with E&C hitting a chair against a ladder. The Dudley Boyz come out and hit the wassup drop on Christian. Matt Hardy recovers and dives onto everyone on the outside. Meanwhile, Jericho/Benoit are brawling and eventually both go through the table. These two feuds along with the main event carried the SummerSlam build. *1/2
  12. E&C do have the Hardys beat quite a bit in the promo department even though them going to the little person well as an insult feels way overdone. Jackie is the tag partner here for E&C which feels really shoe horned in. Jacqueline does give a brutal sidewalk slam to Lita. The Hardys get a measure of revenge winning here in convincing fashion. Match was brief but used to keep Matt/Jeff in the tag title scene and to get a nice hometown pop. *
  13. Quick match that you knew were leading to some miscommunication on the face team. That happens soon enough as Jeff hits the swantom on DVon and E&C escape with the win. Afterwards, Bubba gets pissed and the Dudleys and Hardys are clearly not on the same page. ½*
  14. This was mainly used a backdrop to again build to the TLC match upcoming. As a standalone tag match, it was fine and showcased some of the highlights/overness of the teams at this point in time. The build for TLC has been really good with all the weapons being integrated but never all at once like what will happen on the PPV. **
  15. Something about this match coming off the heels of Thunder really projected the difference between WWF and WCW at the moment. We have seen these kind of goal post moments in the deterioration of WCW. The Lance Storm stuff is universally praised from this dreadful period and it was fine and enjoyable but then on SmackDown you have kind of a throwaway match between two characters like Edge and Matt Hardy and it just feels like it has so much more juice just from a presentation standpoint. This match was also short but I liked the angle that played into it with Jeff Hardy being pleaded with to stay in the back due to his concussion. Matt is in trouble in the latter stages of the match and here comes Jeff to help his brother with a ladder. He climbs to the top and loses his equilibrium falling to the ropes below. Edge then completely demolishes Matt with a chair shot right to the head continuing the build to TLC. *1/2
  16. I’m done with RTC. Their work isn’t good and their heat seems to be dropping rapidly once the annoying theme music ends. Jeff Hardy in particular seemed to be on autopilot here until he took off his long sleeve shirt and did some double team moves with Matt. As a result, this was a really pedestrian Survivor Series style match with the ending being a feel good moment for the faces with Jeff lucking into a win and then a post match involving RTC members going through a table. **1/2
  17. Backstage, HHH tells Steph that she cost him the #1 contendership. The relationship here is still rocky. Steph says if she is such a liability, then she shouldn’t be there at all. Angle comes out for his match and talks about how much of a roll he is on. Angle gets in a potshot on Cal Ripken. Angle brings out his pals, Edge & Christian. Match itself is fine with some good comedy involving Too Cool and Rikishi including a stinkface to Kurt. Knowing what is about to come down the pike with Rikishi, it was good to get a six man from him and Too Cool one last time. Finish is an interesting development as Steph runs down and throws Sexay off the top rope and right into an Angle Slam for the pin. Right as Steph leaves backstage, Kurt asks her to be her permanent manager and she says she appreciates that he cares for her and understands her worth. **
  18. This provided an excellent visualization of the depth of the tag roster in WWF at the time but as a standalone match, it never came together. E&C insult the sports of Boston just like Kurt a few minutes before but I will give them props for having a Mookie Wilson jersey. Everything was too compartmentalized. It started with a segment of the Hardy’s vs T&A. Lita and Trish have a scruff which again is a rehash of the Venis vs Eddy match and Chyna and Trish going after each other. E&C and Hardy’s then have their Raw match which is good but brief. Finally it is down to Too Cool and E&C and again the action is fine but not that inspiring and really relies on the big spots of both teams. The finish was goofy to me in that the referee finally decides it is time to restore order not counting a pin when he had done that numerous times before. This allows Christian to slam the tag belt against Sexay and E&C retain the titles. **1/2
  19. This match gets set up by Foley backstage. Funny segment with E&C and Angle strategizing. A really good six man here with Hardcore looking motivated and E&C complimenting them well. I actually am longing for a tag feud. Taker comes in for the finale and lays out Angle with Last Ride for the dominant win and he is riding a lot of momentum heading into Survivor Series. **1/4
  20. Edge and Christian continue to refine their heel act including Angle in the group more and more. The jug band photo op they do here is one of my favorites throughout this run. E&C implement the Arn and Tully corner spot. Rikishi is still over like crazy as the crowd chants his name loudly half way through the match. Angle cutting off the worm was smart in getting heat on him and it allows Scotty 2 Hotty to be FIP for a bit. Solid stuff in the FIP and then we get the finale with Kurt getting the stink face and Rikishi running through his offense. Edge is able to hit the spear on Rikishi and then attempts to do the worm. Scotty stops that and does the WORM proper. To continue the trend, Christian hits a ring bell on Christian and the pinfall but the referee is distracted. This allows Sexay to come down with a legdrop for the top and Rikishi is put on top of Edge to gain the victory. Good opener to get the crowd going and a good way to have E&C lose without dropping the belts. ***
  21. E&C are pissed that Foley didn’t give them the title shot vs. RTC. Instead, they are up against the Hardy Boyz. Good match for four minutes and I like how personal the feud has evolved as they brawl on the entrance way. The match has a quick FIP sequence for Jeff where he does a good job selling underneath and then makes the tag to Matt. Lita gets involved and the Hardy’s are able to pick up the win to a huge pop. **
  22. The kazoo has arrived and they add lyrics to Benoit’s song. Foley interrupts and gives them the rundown for tonight as they have a tables match vs The Dudley Boyz. We get a quick insert to Steven “celebrating” with RTC before the match starts. Quick match with E&C having a bit of success before mocking the Dudley’s and the tide changing. The Hardy Boyz and Lita interfere and that is fine since it is a Tables Match. Lita gives a great rana to Christian and then he gets 3D’d through the table. After the match, Jeff gives the swantom to Edge through a table on the outside. *
  23. The watching on tv gimmick from WWF New York is still really awkward. Good singles showcase from these two and Edge looked more natural here than I seem to recall even a few years later when he was put out there to have 7-14 minute showcase type matches. Christian gets in some cheap shots on the outside. Tazz on commentary is making a late push at being in my bottom three for the year. His “laugh” is putrid and him and Cole spend most of this match talking about everything else but the match that is going on in the ring. Interference with both members have Tim White distracted but the match looks won when Hardy hits the Twist of Fate, Christian is able to pull Matt out and then Christian hits the reverse DDT for a close two count. Jeff hits Edge in a chair right in the face when Edge brings it into the match and Matt gets the win. This was a fun way to integrate the tag partners into the match while giving the two singles competitors some showcase spots as well. RTC interferes to end things and they feel pretty dated by now. **3/4
  24. Great heat for the E&C bit as this came off the 1999 World Series sweep. JR gives a nod to Gordon Solie who passed away during this match. I have liked the way they have built to the TLC with interspersing the three teams against each other. This was up there with the regular best of five match before the ladder match leading to No Mercy 99. The nearfall off of the Swantombomb was especially well done with Edge pulling him out at the right exact moment. Chairs get involved causing a DQ and increasing the violence of the feud. **
  25. This is a funny bit and one instance where I had no problem with the match quality suffering to keep the angle chugging along. E&C do a ton of mat rolls, talk to the Spanish announce team and in general look like generic luchadors. As bad as King was on commentary at some moments of this show, he was strong here still playing the heel role but accidentally saying E&C's name at different points. Them winning was a surprise and well done with them immediately bolting to the back as fast as they can. **
