[2000-05-18-WWF-Smackdown] The Rock vs D-Von & Bubba Ray Dudley (Handicap Lumberjack Tables)


Recommended Posts

Another non match of sorts as Rock and Dudley Boyz battle for about two minutes and then go after the lumberjacks. Test gets put through a table. It doesn’t look like Rock can overtake the odds when he puts Bull through a table. HHH is able to regain the advantage with an assist from X-Pac and they Rock Bottom Rock through the table as our final signoff before Judgment Day. ½*

Backstage interview where we learn that disqualifications and count outs will count as falls in the Iron Man match at Judgment Day. Rock then alludes that Shawn Michaels might be in collusion with Triple H, as he reminds everyone that the last time he was in the ring with him HBK cost him the WWF title. He goes on to warn him that whatever he’s got planned, whatever he’s thinking of doing, The Rock never forgets!


D-X are out followed by the rest of the lumberjacks; Test, Albert, Big Bossman, Bull Buchanan, Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson and finally Vince and Shane McMahon. Brisco is like Tim Sylvia at a UFC event, proudly wearing the Hardcore title around his waist! Rules of this one, the brainchild of Mr McMahon to try and weaken the Rock before Judgment Day, are that you have to put your opponent(s) through a table to get the win. Rock whips Bubba into the ropes and T&A grab his ankle distracting him. He clotheslines him over the top rope to the floor, but instead of throwing Bubba straight back into the ring, all the lumberjacks are around to beat and stomp on him. Eventually they roll him back in, and Bubba reverses the Irish whip before hitting a side slam. ‘Wassup’ and Mr McMahon is liking what he’s seeing. Rock ducks a lariat, clotheslines D-Von over the top and he gets the same treatment as his partner. As Bubba rushes in, Rock sends him to the floor again where he receives more of the same. Rock decks Triple H, but gets pulled to the floor by X-Pac and then attacked by the lumberjacks. When the three of them are back inside they all look at each other and decide to forget the match and go after the lumberjacks instead. Double suplex by the Dudleyz to Albert on the metal ramp way, as Rock uses an electrical cable to choke HHH. Road Dogg and X-Pac are around to help their leader, while on the opposite side D-Von puts Test through a table with a splash off the top to the floor. As Bubba is about to come off the middle with a splash to X-Pac, Tori ow blows him and Pac with an ‘X-Factor’ through the table. It’s D-Von’s turn next as an assisted powerbomb sends him through one. The five on one odds are too much for the Rock, and finally Triple H uses his own move against him, ‘Rock Bottoming’ ‘the Great One’ through a table as Mr McMahon declares D-Generation X the winners.


Only a couple of minutes of action before the match breaks down with the participants going after the lumberjacks. Probably more angle than match to be fair, with Triple H and ‘the Regime’ looking strong and leaving their opponents laying going into Judgment Day.
