[1999-08-23-WWF-Raw] HHH, Jim Ross and Mankind

Recommended Posts

Jim Ross is set to interview Mankind when HHH and Chyna come out. HHH goes on and on pissed off about not getting his moment in the sun the night before. Great heat for this. HHH ends up attacking Jim Ross since Austin and Foley are his "boys" and he wants Mankind out immediately or he'll break Jim Ross's arm. Mankind agrees to the title shot tonight if HHH lets him go. HHH gets his match, then breaks Jim Ross's arm anyway. While this was executed great, I hated this angle because I think they needed Jim Ross calling matches too much to sacrifice him to run angles. Shane McMahon comes out to make clear that the match is on.

HHH doing his best Shane Douglas impersonation. This is a WWF staple of big time heel attacking friend of babyface champion. Mankind looked like such a idiot here. Not a fan.

I really liked this as HHH using the same tactics Mick used to gain a match vs. Rock on 1/4/99. HHH does feel entitled and is the heel here but he also raises some valid points.

I like Triple H better as a guy fighting for a spot rather than Lord and Master of All. Good segment and good angle, though the arm break sound effect is way worse than I remember it being.
