Sunday Night Heat 4/10/98

X-Pac (W/DX) VS. Owen Hart

The former Euro champ D-Lo comes out to hype up his Euro title shot against Pac on Raw. The story of the match is that Owen is so upset over having injured Dan Savern by accident with a botched piledriver on raw (clearly a reference to Owen's real life botch at Summerslam 97) that he is not in the right frame of mind to wrestle. Pac wins easily. Nothing match and lame storyline. Fuck you Russo:mad:



Some nerd who looks about 15 tries to interview Stone Cold for WWF.com:lmao

We get a Raw recap of Vince's leg injure at the hands of Taker/Kane. From his hospital bed Vince sells his injuries, lays on the melodrama and says he's gutting it out:lmao


Matt Hardy VS. Funaki
Funaki looks for pay back from his team's tag loss the previous week. They have a solid match but it should have been longer. Matt's crucifix into a powerbomb looked good. Funaki turns the tables with knees up from a Matt moonsalt. A fisherman surplex and elbow off the top gets Funaki his win. **


Headbangers VS. The Oddities (W/ICP)
Throw away match. The Oddities get the win with help from the Clowns. *1/2



We get an early Steven Regal "Real Man's Man" video:mark:

Ken Shamrock & Mankind VS. D.O.A. (W/Paul Ellering)
The tension between Shamrock and Mankind goes on. Maybe Ken's sharper than he looks! He attacks the DOA in the dark from Mankind's entrance.:mark: The heels soon take over with a double team. Later Mankind tags himself in which pisses Ken off. During the match with see Austin break into the production truck with a axe! Break in the match Shamrock is not too keen to tag in. A Mankind double arm DDT gets a big pop. When Paul Ellering grabs his leg Mankind locks the mandible craw on the manager:mark: Shamrock grabs a chair and seems to be about to hit Ellering with it but instead strikes his partner. The DOA get the win. **

Austin cuts the wire linking the satellite to Vince's hospital room:lmao

The Rattle Snake join Shane and Cornette for the main event. During the match Vince calls in on a cell phone and has heated words with Austin who has fun intimidating Vince's kid.

Jeff Jarrett (W/Southern Justice) VS.The Rock
These two click from the off and have a very watchable main event. Credit to the Rock who really sells for Double J. The People's Champ gets a near fall from a Samoan drop. Jarrett responds quickly with a clothesline and shows his aggression putting the boots to the Rock. The number one contender side steps a Jarrett drop kick, but then takes a swinging neck breaker. Dennis Knight clotheslines the Rock on the floor and runs him into the steps. A Jarrett crossbody off the top is smoothly reversed for a near fall. Double J again responds quickly. The Rock catches a breather by reversing a surplex on Jarrett. He then scores two and an half. Moments later the Rock hits a DDT followed by a low blow, a slam and a people's elbow. Before the three count Knight breaks up the count. The heels double team the Rock. Austin makes the save stunning both heels. The show ends with a stare down between The Rock and Austin. This is impressive forward thinking. Planting the seeds for a future main event feud. ***

Sunday Night Heat 11/10/98

Women's Title match Jacqueline (c) (W/Marvelous Marc Mero) VS. Starla Saxton

What's this a women's jobber match? Wait that's no jobber! That's pre-Molly Holly, Molly Holly!:mark: A quick sidebar. This early in Molly's career when she was still working her way up the indie circuit. Molly signed for WCW in 99 and appeared as part of Macho's Entourage. It was upon returning to the WWF around 2000-2001? when her career started to get going. More on that in future reviews.

Good for Corny putting Molly/Starla over as a promising local talent. Jacqueline is wearing streaks of Sable's hair. Which I like a lot!:D Corny says she looks like a skunk:lmao Molly give the champ a run for her money with some stiff shots and a nice hip toss. They exchange some chain wrestling holds, before Jackie takes over with a nice spinning heel kick and a double under-hook surplex for a two. Starla steals a near fall from a roll up after a mix up with Mero and Jackie. The challenger also scores a two from a over head surplex bridge. Jackie counters a move off the rope and gets the pin with a nice looking DDT. A few years later these two would have a more stand out match. Post-match the overrated Bimbo Sable comes out and decks Jackie with some naff kicks. **


Kai En Tai (W/Yamaguchi-San) VS. Too Much & The Hardy Boyz
Having the heels Too Much team up with faces the Hardy's was probably a give away to how this one might end?;) Its another rush job which was watchable because of the talent. Scotty's pump handle slam into a surplex looks good. Christoper does his annoying/entertaining heelish laugh. He's so impressed with his face plant on Tanka he laughs again:lmao Jeff's tilt til whirl legdrop off the ropes is a bit sloppy. The Handy's double team leads to a Matt pin, but the ref's out of position. All eight brawl. Too Much double team leads to a Christoper top rope leg drop. Tao miss times a save but the heels reverse the pin to steal the win. Predictably the Hardy's and Too Much have a bust up post-match. **


In a Raw flashback Vince is visited in the hospital by Mankind. He thinks its Austin. Foley tries to cheer the boss up with "entertainment";) Says he has a second guest. Says its "female entertainment";) Well he wasn't lying its a female clown!! How progressive of them!!:D Vince kicks them both out.

Vader VS. Edge
The shackles are off Vader for a change. He feels a bit like the old Vader. Dominates Edge in the corner. Awesome splash in the other corner:mark: He hits a powerbomb which Edge kicks out off. Now I get they are trying to put Edge over strong, but if that was WCW it would have been a win for Vader. Or at the very least it would have been made a big deal of. Edge reverses Vader into the steps. To show his aggression he picks up the ring steps but the ref stands in his way. Edge hits a nice spin wheel kick. Then his a top rope clothesline for two. Vader catches him coming off the top with a power slam for a near fall. Edge hits the downward spiral for the win. If WWF weren't jobbing Vader out at this point they could have made this a proper feud. The two could have met at Judgement Day the following week. Vader could have put the rookie over properly. **1/2


Ken Shamrock VS. Al Snow (W/Head!:mark:)
Who is the nuttier of them all?!:lmao Ken quickly hits a belly to belly and hooks in an ankle lock. Snow makes the ropes but Shamrock holds on and gets the DQ. The sick puppy Al is he loves the pain!:D Scorpion tries to pull Shamrock off before Foley comes out with a chair to force him off. Good ol' Al is still grinning like a madman biting the rope.


Another fun Regal "Man's Man" video:mark: This time he's squashing oranges!:D

Road Dog VS. Double J Jeff Jarrett
Top work from Corny again selling their past heat. They are still selling a Outlaws bust up? Since its Vinnie Ru writing no doubt it will soon be revealed as a trick and dropped. Typically solid, puch, kick, brawl back and fourth. Road Dog does a good job of working crowd. It ends in a hurry when the face gets himself DQ'd (yes another one) after hitting Jarrett with his own gutiar.


The second Raw recap video from the hospital is of course a classic. Its Austin dressed as a doctor attacking VInce:mark: He hits him with a bed pan and gives him a bit of a shock:lmao Its a hoot once again!:D


D-Lo Brown (W/Mark Henry) VS. Stone Cold Steve Austin
We get highlights of Brown winning the Euro title back from X-Pac. During the match Henry gives Chyna a love lettero_O Its been years since I've watch this storyline. I know I'm even going to love it or hate it:hmm: Austin runs through Brown in a quick main event. He gives Henry a stunner for good measure. *1/2

WCW would sign her shortly after this. They really missed out not capitalizing on some of the women talent they began to hire around this time.
