    One Night in Montreal



    November 9, 1997. A date that will live in infamy for wrestling fans worldwide. The beginning of an era. The true beginning of a war.

    As everyone will certainly know, Survivor Series 1997 marked the ending of Bret “The Hitman” Hart’s WWF career, in very controversial fashion. Now colloquially referred to as The Montreal Screwjob, Vince McMahon screwing Bret Hart (or if you asked Vince, Bret screwing Bret) started a course of events that would alter wrestling history in ways that nobody could ever believe. On that evening, Shawn Michaels would lock in Bret Hart’s patented Sharpshooter maneuver and Vince McMahon would immediately force referee Earl Hebner to call for the bell, thus ending the match and awarding the WWF Championship to Shawn Michaels. Following the controversial ending to the match, Bret Hart would spit in Vince McMahon’s face before knocking him unconscious in the backstage area, away from the cameras.

    This moment in wrestling history sparked what is now known as the Attitude Era which would see more edgy storylines and saw the rise of stars such as The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Triple H and many more but what if things were different? While in this universe, the Montreal Screwjob does occur, the events taking place afterword are significantly different. Some of the Attitude Era’s biggest stars will remain as such but there will be other stars that rise and some that fall all because of that One Night in Montreal.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    November 10, 1997 – March 29, 1998

    Off the heels of the controversial Survivor Series event, the new WWF Champion Shawn Michaels relinquished the European Championship to his partner Triple H who proclaimed that DX would run roughshod over WWF for the foreseeable future. Owen Hart took exception to this and would attack DX week after week until Commissioner Slaughter announced that Hart would get a WWF title shot at In Your House with Triple H and Chyna barred from ringside!

    Meanwhile, Intercontinental Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin would be shockingly attacked by Ken Shamrock who would seemingly snap Austin’s ankle with the Ankle Lock leaving him on the shelf for several months. A tournament would commence and the deciding match would come down to Ken Shamrock and The Rock who would face off at In Your House to determine the new Intercontinental Champion. Also involved in the tournament were: Vader, Goldust, Davey Boy Smith, Ahmed Johnson, Steve Blackman and Jeff Jarrett.

    Formerly known as The Interrogator, Kurrgan would branch out on his own by attacking his partners in The Truth Commission, Sniper and Recon. The two men would challenge him to a handicap match at In Your House, obviously accepted by Kurrgan.

    The tag team division was all over the place, however, the New Age Outlaws stepped up and along with antics unbecoming of WWF superstars, they defeated the Legion of Doom for the WWF Tag Team titles before being attacked by all of the tag teams on the roster leading to Commissioner Slaughter booking a tag team turmoil at In Your House.

    Mankind began stalking Sable which infuriated Marc Mero to no end leading the two to have a hardcore match at In Your House in which if Mero was victorious, Mankind would be barred from WWF…for life!

    Kane would run through the roster in an attempt to face his brother The Undertaker but instead of him, it was Yokozuna who assaulted Kane and a match between the two was scheduled for In Your House. The Undertaker promised to be watching.

    Jerry Lawler turned on his son Brian Christopher, calling him a disgrace to the Lawler family.

    --

    In Your House – December 7, 1997

    Kurrgan defeated his former partners The Truth Commission (Sniper and Recon) in a 2-on-1 handicap match

    Kane defeated Yokozuna with a monstrous Chokeslam and following the match his brother, The Undertaker laid out Kane with a Tombstone Piledriver

    Brian Christopher beat his father Jerry Lawler in an emotional affair

    The New Age Outlaws retained the WWF Tag Team Championship beating 6 other teams in the tag team turmoil match, last beating the Legion of Doom who turned on one another

    Ken Shamrock forced The Rock to submit to the Ankle Lock to begin a dominant reign as the Intercontinental Champion

    Marc Mero defeated Mankind in an absolutely brutal hardcore match and as a result, Mankind was banned from the WWF for life!

    Shawn Michaels retained the WWF Championship against Owen Hart despite interferences by Jim Neidhart and Davey Boy Smith, after the match Steve Austin returned and hit the Stunner on Michaels

    --

    Steve Austin made it clear that he wanted Shawn Michaels’ WWF Championship but Shawn Michaels, Triple H and Chyna were not going to let him get it that easily as they triple-teamed him but they were all hit with Stunners. A match was scheduled for the Royal Rumble where Shawn Michaels would defend his WWF title against Steve Austin…in a Texas Street Fight!

    Commissioner Slaughter decided to strip Triple H of the European Championship due to him not defending it within 30 days of winning it, causing him to be furious and attack the Commissioner, leading to a match between the two at the Royal Rumble.

    Davey Boy Smith won a battle royal to become the new European Champion, last eliminating Crush. Following the match, Jim Neidhart shockingly attacked Smith and stated that he wanted the European title!

    Kurrgan continued to destroy the WWF roster, defeating the likes of Taka Michinoku, Brian Christopher and Leif Cassidy before declaring that he would be a competitor in the Royal Rumble match, who will be able to stop him!

    Kane and The Undertaker would battle back and forth for weeks, both men hitting each other with their signature maneuvers with Paul Bearer cheering them on and encouraging them to fight and both men declared their intentions to be in the Royal Rumble match.

    The Rock blamed the Nation of Domination for his loss to Ken Shamrock at In Your House, specifically targeting Farooq as the reason which led to the implosion of the stable with all the men brawling, however, D-Lo Brown sided with The Rock and the debuting Mark Henry made it clear that he was also with The Rock leading to a 3-on-2 handicap match being booked for the Royal Rumble.

    Marc Mero celebrated his victory over Mankind by declaring for the Royal Rumble match before being assaulted by Cactus Jack who also declared for the match!

    --

    Royal Rumble – January 18, 1998

    Davey Boy Smith retained the European Championship by defeating long time friend Jim Neidhart

    Triple H soundly defeated Sgt. Slaughter in a match that saw Triple H bloody Slaughter and after the match, Vince McMahon announced that Slaughter was not fulfilling his duties as Commissioner and was therefore…fired!

    The Rock, D-Lo Brown and Mark Henry won a 3-on-2 handicap match, defeating Farooq and Kama Mustafa

    Shawn Michaels retained his WWF Championship by defeating Steve Austin in a Texas Street Fight, throughout the course of the match, both Triple H and Chyna got involved on Michaels’ behalf

    Owen Hart made his return to the WWF after a month’s absence to win the 1998 Royal Rumble match last eliminating Marc Mero to earn a shot at the WWF Championship at WrestleMania 14. Notable moments saw Kurrgan eliminate Yokozuna single handedly as well as Kane and The Undertaker eliminating one another.

    --

    Owen Hart would form The New Hart Foundation with European Champion Davey Boy Smith, Phil Lafon and Jim Neidhart (who apologized to Smith for attacking him) and the team would challenge D-Generation X to a 4-on-3 handicap match at No Way Out, which would be accepted with a huge Superkick to Owen Hart.

    Ken Shamrock broke Savio Vega’s ankle before laying out the remaining members of Los Boricuas and claiming that there was absolutely no one in the back that could take the Intercontinental Championship from him which spurred on a challenge from Farooq.

    The New Age Outlaws’ run as the WWF Tag Team Champions continued after a win over The New Blackjacks which saw the team break up with Blackjack Bradshaw hitting Blackjack Windham with a Clothesline from Hell. In the aftermath of this match, The Headbangers would stake their claim at a tag team title shot.

    Hawk and Animal returned to the WWF seemingly as a cohesive unit but that quickly broke down as the two brawled throughout the arena.

    Marc Mero put out an open challenge to anyone to face him at No Way Out and it was Goldust who accepted the challenge.

    Kurrgan, with his new manager The Jackyl, continued to run roughshod over the lower card of the WWF until running into Cactus Jack who put up a good fight before losing but that did not stop him as he kept coming back, over and over again until Jackyl stated that there would be No Way Out…of Texas for Cactus Jack when he faces Kurrgan inside a steel cage!

    The Rock made it clear that 1998 was going to be his year and that there was absolutely no one that could stop him and both Mark Henry and D-Lo Brown agreed with him but Kama Mustafa stated otherwise and challenged him to a match!

    --

    No Way Out – February 15, 1998

    The New Age Outlaws once again retained the WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating The Headbangers, following the match they were assaulted by a team of masked men

    Animal defeated Hawk in a match that was deemed as the Battle of Brothers

    With help from Sable, Marc Mero defeated Goldust but after the match Goldust and Luna chased Mero and Sable to the back

    Ken Shamrock retained his Intercontinental Championship by forcing Farooq to submit to the Ankle Lock

    The Rock easily defeated Kama Mustafa

    Kurrgan defeated Cactus Jack in a steel cage match, however, during the course of the match, Terry Funk made his WWF debut attempting to help Jack but being beaten down by Kurrgan

    The 4-on-3 handicap match between The New Hart Foundation and D-Generation X went to a no contest when it broke down in a brawl which ended with Owen Hart submitting Shawn Michaels with a Sharpshooter while the rest of the members brawled

    --

    Owen Hart and the New Hart Foundation continued to humiliate D-Generation X, however, the week after, Phil Lafon was assaulted and thrown into a dumpster, never to be heard from again. Owen Hart and Shawn Michaels exchanged heated words leading to a contract signing and brawl between the two.

    The New Age Outlaws seemingly had no competition for the WWF Tag Team Championship heading into WrestleMania 14, until a battle royal featuring several new teams including Too Much (Scott Taylor and Brian Christopher), The Quebecers (Jacques and Pierre) and Mark Henry and D-Lo Brown was held which was won by 8-Ball and Chainz of the Disciples of Apocalypse earning them a shot at the WWF Tag Team Championship, however, the lingering attack by the mystery team at No Way Out terrified them.

    Steve Blackman, who up until this point was undefeated, set his sights on the Intercontinental Champion Ken Shamrock and the two engaged in several matches, all of which went to a no contest until the rubber match was scheduled for WrestleMania with the Intercontinental Championship on the line.

    Marc Mero and Sable were terrified of Goldust and Luna as they stalked them throughout the course of the weeks leading up to WrestleMania.

    The Undertaker and Kane’s feud continued to heat up as the two fought back and forth until The Undertaker challenged Kane to a Casket match at WrestleMania and stated that Kane would rest in peace…forever!

    Davey Boy Smith’s reign as European Champion continued to be relatively uneventful until Jeff Jarrett made his return to WWF by hitting Smith over the head with a guitar and calling him a paper champion.

    The Rock continued to call himself the next big thing in the WWF and say that 1998 was going to be the year of The Rock until Triple H confronted him stating that 1998 was the year of Triple H and D-Generation X! The two engaged in several wars of words before a match was scheduled between the two for WrestleMania.

    Kurrgan and The Jackyl would say that Cactus Jack and Terry Funk were no match for the dominating Kurrgan and the two would not like that very much as the two challenged him to a 2-on-1 handicap match which Jackyl accepted on his behalf!

    --

    WrestleMania 14 – March 29, 1998

    Jeff Jarrett won the European Championship by defeating the incumbent champion Davey Boy Smith

    The New Age Outlaws retained the WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating 8-Ball and Chainz and were attacked post-match by the debuting Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley, THE DUDLEY BOYZ!

    Cactus Jack and Terry Funk finally got revenge on Kurrgan when they beat him to a bloody pulp to score the victory

    Marc Mero and Sable dominated Goldust and Luna and scored a relatively easy victory and following the match Goldust removed his gold suit and left it lying in the ring

    Steve Blackman shockingly defeated Ken Shamrock to win his first Intercontinental Championship and remain undefeated in the WWF

    Triple H managed to defeat The Rock in a heated match which saw Mark Henry and D-Lo Brown get involved several times

    The Undertaker won the Casket match against Kane thanks to help from Paul Bearer who hit Kane over the head with the urn before Undertaker Tombstoned him and placed him in the casket and following that, lightning hit the casket and it erupted in flames

    Owen Hart got revenge on Shawn Michaels by forcing him to submit to his brother’s Sharpshooter finishing move to win the WWF Championship!

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    March 30, 1998 – June 28, 1998

    The feud between the new WWF Champion Owen Hart and Shawn Michaels was not done yet as D-Generation X continued to run roughshod over WWF by attacking Hart week in and week out until Vince McMahon scheduled the rematch at Unforgiven and the losing man would be forced to leave the WWF!

    The new European Champion Jeff Jarrett made it clear that he was not planning on losing the championship any time soon and that there was really no one in the back that could defeat him and that’s when Marc Mero attacked and staked his claim for a title shot.

    The New Age Outlaws called out The Dudley Boyz and the two teams had a huge brawl which saw The Dudley Boyz put Billy Gunn through a table. The teams would continue to have several brawls over the next few weeks which saw Cactus Jack and Terry Funk get involved to help out The Dudley Boyz and they formed a new stable entitled Extreme Violence. A match was scheduled for Unforgiven pitting the New Age Outlaws against The Dudley Boyz for the WWF Tag Team Championship.

    New Intercontinental Champion Steve Blackman would put out a series of open challenge matches for his championship which he would all be victorious in against the likes of Crush, Doug Furnas, The Patriot and The Sultan until he was viciously assaulted by Vader who accepted Blackman’s challenge for Unforgiven!

    The Rock called out Mark Henry and D-Lo Brown and told them that he no longer had any use for them because they were losers and did not help him to defeat Triple H at WrestleMania. Henry would step up and challenge The Rock to a match at Unforgiven which would be quickly accepted!

    Former Intercontinental Champion Ken Shamrock stated that he was actually pleased that he lost the title because now he could move on to bigger and better things…like destroying The Undertaker! The two men would engage in a war of words and mind games over the coming weeks and a match would be scheduled for Unforgiven between the two!

    Tiger Ali Singh made his WWF debut by putting out a fifty thousand dollar open challenge to anyone for the upcoming Unforgiven pay-per-view. The challenge was accepted by Bradshaw!

    --

    Unforgiven – April 26, 1998

    Marc Mero managed to defeat Jeff Jarrett by disqualification after Jarrett hit him with a guitar and thus Jarrett remained the European Champion

    The Rock defeated Mark Henry despite interference from D-Lo Brown

    Tiger Ali Singh defeated Bradshaw in the 50,000 dollar open challenge match to keep his money

    The Dudley Boyz defeated The New Age Outlaws to win the WWF Tag Team Championship, during the match, Cactus Jack and Terry Funk got involved on the Dudleys behalf

    Steve Blackman stunningly retained his Intercontinental Championship by knocking Vader unconscious with a thrust kick to the temple

    Ken Shamrock and The Undertaker fought to a no contest as both men brawled to the back

    Owen Hart successfully retained his WWF Championship against Shawn Michaels despite several interferences from both Triple H and Chyna and as a result, Michaels is forced to leave the WWF

    --

    Following Unforgiven, there were several new challengers that stepped forward to demand an opportunity at Owen Hart’s WWF title and they were Triple H, The Rock and surprisingly Owen’s friend Davey Boy Smith. The four would engage in heated wars of words until Vince McMahon said that enough was enough and booked a fatal four-way at Over the Edge for the title!

    The Extreme Violence stable continued to have a stranglehold on the tag team division as they defeated The Headbangers, The Godwinns and The Quebecers among others but the New Age Outlaws were not done and they wanted their titles back and said that they’d face The Dudley Boyz in a tables match if it meant they got a title shot and the Dudleys accepted for Over the Edge!

    Ken Shamrock and The Undertaker continued their feud with both men making it clear that the other was going to burn in hell. The Undertaker played increasingly violent mind games with Shamrock, including making his car burst into flames in the parking lot. Shamrock proceeded to challenge The Undertaker to a Last Man Standing match at Over the Edge and The Undertaker accepted but stated that he is no mortal man!

    The mysterious Tiger Ali Singh cut a promo stating that he comes from a country in which he was a prince and that he was going to make sure everyone in the WWF knows it! Jerry Lawler interrupted him and told him that being a prince was no match for being a king! Singh challenged Lawler to a match for his crown at Over the Edge which Lawler accepted!

    Marc Mero demanded a rematch for the European title and was granted it but was pinned (clean) by the champion Jeff Jarrett. Mero said that there is a conspiracy against him in the WWF and that he will not stop until he is the European Champion. Jeff Jarrett would call Mero a sore loser and tell him that he lost fair and square and that he (Jarrett) is the greatest European Champion of all time. Bradshaw would involve himself in the feud and shockingly side with Jarrett and lay Mero out with a Clothesline from Hell. Jarrett introduced Bradshaw as his insurance policy and agreed to put the European title on the line at Over the Edge!

    Intercontinental Champion Steve Blackman seemingly had no challengers for his title but cryptic video messages began playing a few weeks prior to Over the Edge and most thought that it was Kane but it soon became clear that it was not but nobody knew who it was yet Blackman agreed to put his title on the line against this mystery opponent!

    Vince McMahon announced that at Over the Edge, there would be a showcase of the Light Heavyweight talent in the WWF which would include Taka Michinoku, Aguila, Brian Christopher, Scott Taylor and the debuting Sho Funaki. McMahon promised that if this match went well, there could be a bright future for this division.

    --

    Over the Edge – May 31, 1998

    Sho Funaki impressed everyone by winning the Light Heavyweight Showcase match in his debut, defeating Taka Michinoku, Aguila, Brian Christopher and Scott Taylor

    Tiger Ali Singh soundly defeated Jerry Lawler to gain possession of his coveted crown, which he would destroy after the match!

    Jeff Jarrett, with the help of Bradshaw, once again retained his European Championship by defeating Marc Mero

    The debuting Gangrel shockingly ended Steve Blackman’s undefeated streak to win the Intercontinental Championship

    The Undertaker defeated Ken Shamrock in a Last Man Standing match after Chokeslamming him off the stage into the electrical equipment

    Owen Hart defied the odds and retained the WWF Championship by defeating Triple H, The Rock and Davey Boy Smith

    --

    Vince McMahon applauded Owen Hart’s fighting spirit and decided that he wasn’t going to make him defend the WWF Championship at King of the Ring and that the focus of the pay-per-view would be the tournament itself!

    The King of the Ring hype began with Triple H and The Rock both declaring their intent to enter the tournament, however, they were forced to win qualifying matches which they were successful in, defeating The Patriot and The Sultan respectively.

    Tiger Ali Singh qualified for the tournament by defeating Jim Neidhart and after the match he promised that he would become the true king of the WWF!

    Jeff Jarrett and Bradshaw would be the next two to qualify for the match when they were victorious in a tag team qualifying match against Marc Mero and Doug Furnas.

    Fresh off of losing his Intercontinental Championship, Steve Blackman would soundly defeat Savio Vega to cement his place in the King of the Ring tournament!

    Stone Cold Steve Austin made a stunning return to the WWF after a six-month absence to defeat Davey Boy Smith and qualify for the King of the Ring tournament, Jim Ross and Michael Cole called him the odds on favorite to win!

    Mark Henry won a last chance battle royal to earn his spot in the King of the Ring tournament.

    Meanwhile, The Undertaker and Ken Shamrock’s feud was not over as Shamrock was looking for vengeance and stated that he was ready to take The Undertaker to hell and challenged him to a Hell in a Cell match which was accepted!

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    June 29, 1998 – August 30, 1998

    Following his King of the Ring tournament victory, Steve Austin began assaulting various members of the WWF roster in an attempt to get to the WWF Champion Owen Hart but Hart sent his cronies (Davey Boy Smith and Jim Neidhart) to attack Austin week in and week out. Austin challenged them to a 3-on-1 handicap match at Fully Loaded and of course, Hart accepted without hesitation.

    After assisting his brother at King of the Ring, Kane teamed up with The Undertaker to face The Dudley Boyz for the WWF Tag Team Championship on the July 5, 1998 edition of Raw, a match which they would win. It seemed as though there was not a single tag team that could take the titles from them but The Dudley Boyz wanted their titles back and the New Age Outlaws wanted another shot so Vince McMahon scheduled a triple threat match for the titles at Fully Loaded!

    Intercontinental Champion Gangrel continued to spook the WWF roster with his strange vampire antics and stated that he had a premonition that he would remain the Intercontinental Champion for the rest of time! That’s when The Rock stepped up and proclaimed that he was not afraid of Gangrel and that he was going to be the new champion come Fully Loaded!

    Vince McMahon, who was impressed by the Light Heavyweights on the roster, decided that it was time for a new championship and introduced the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship. He scheduled a battle royal for Fully Loaded which would include: Sho Funaki, Taka Michinoku, Aguila, Scott Taylor, Brian Christopher, Jesus Castillo, Flash Funk as well as 3 mystery participants to be announced at the event!

    European Champion Jeff Jarrett and his insurance policy Bradshaw continued to parade around the WWF acting as though nobody could beat them or Jarrett to win the European title and that appeared true as Jarrett defeated the likes of Vader, The Patriot and The Sultan, with the help of Bradshaw of course but Tiger Ali Singh stepped up to the plate and challenged Jarrett to a match for his title at Fully Loaded, Jarrett accepted but not until after Bradshaw assaulted Singh and beat him to a bloody pulp.

    Kurrgan made his WWF return by calling out anyone in the back to face him one-on-one, a challenge that was accepted by none other than Triple H who would shockingly lose. Triple H was none too pleased with this loss and along with Chyna, he attacked Kurrgan the next week and challenged him to a Street Fight at Fully Loaded which was accepted!

    Fully Loaded - July 26, 1998

    The Rock captured his second Intercontinental Championship by defeating the vampire known as Gangrel, although there were several interferences from two mystery men

    Triple H beat the holy hell out of Kurrgan in a Street Fight to claim the victory

    Brian Christopher won a battle royal to become the first ever WWF Light Heavyweight Champion by last eliminating Taka Michinoku. The match was notable for the debuts of X-Pac, Tajiri and Kaz Hayashi

    Jeff Jarrett, with the help of Bradshaw, managed to retain his European Championship by defeating Tiger Ali Singh

    The Dudley Boyz surprisingly won the tag team triple threat match against The Undertaker and Kane and the New Age Outlaws by pinning Billy Gunn to become the new WWF Tag Team Champions

    Steve Austin overcame all the odds when he won a 3-on-1 handicap match against Owen Hart, Jim Neidhart and Davey Boy Smith by pinning Neidhart after a huge Stunner

    --

    Steve Austin stated that his victory at Fully Loaded proved that he was going to become the next WWF Champion, something which did not sit well with Owen Hart who attacked Austin with a chair and targeted his knee, something he would do several weeks in a row leading to some speculation that Austin would not be medically clear for SummerSlam but those doubts went out the window when Austin showed up in his pickup truck and jumped Hart and hit him with a thunderous Stunner on the go-home episode of Raw!

    Gangrel introduced his two mystery men as Edge and Christian and called the stable The Brood and proclaimed that they were going to drain the blood from the WWF and that at SummerSlam, his disciples Edge and Christian would become the new WWF Tag Team Champions. However, the Extreme Violence stable would assault The Brood but Gangrel would summon some sort of force to fight them off. Vince McMahon decided that instead of a tag team match it would be Extreme Violence versus The Brood in a 4-on-3 handicap match for the WWF Tag Team Championship!

    Tiger Ali Singh was absolutely livid that Bradshaw got involved at Fully Loaded and demanded a rematch for SummerSlam but that he wanted to ensure that there would be no interference, so he wanted a Steel Cage match! European Champion Jeff Jarrett reluctantly accepted the challenge and promised that his reign as champion was not over quite yet!

    The new Intercontinental Champion The Rock celebrated his championship victory by calling himself the greatest product of the Nation of Domination and disrespected all of the other members including Farooq, D-Lo Brown, Kama Mustafa and Mark Henry who would all come to the ring. The Rock stated that none of them deserved a shot at the title but Vince McMahon thought otherwise and told The Rock that at SummerSlam he would run the gauntlet!

    Brian Christopher’s historic first reign as Light Heavyweight Champion kicked off on the Raw after Fully Loaded with him parading around calling himself the greatest wrestler in the history of the WWF. X-Pac was none too pleased by this and assaulted Christopher several weeks in a row before challenging him to a match at SummerSlam, which he would accept!

    Fresh off his victory over Kurrgan, Triple H would somehow embroil himself in a feud with The Undertaker and Kane who would play brutal mind games with him. Triple H stated that he would face them in a handicap match but Chyna advised him otherwise and he would be forced to go to his enemy…Kurrgan for backup. The Undertaker promised that the two would rest in peace at SummerSlam!

    Steve Blackman, in the midst of a shocking losing streak, would become increasingly frustrated with how the way his career was going and it would only be made worse by Marc Mero who insisted on making fun of him for losing week after week. Blackman took great offense to this and told Mero that he wanted him in a match at SummerSlam and if he lost, he would quit the WWF immediately! Mero accepted and told the fans that they better enjoy Blackman while they still can!

    SummerSlam – August 30, 1998

    X-Pac won the Light Heavyweight Championship by scoring a surprisingly easy victory over Brian Christopher

    Steve Blackman broke his losing streak to keep his WWF career by defeating Marc Mero

    The Brood defeated Extreme Violence in a 4-on-3 handicap match to become the WWF Tag Team Champions

    The Rock successfully ran the gauntlet against Farooq, D-Lo Brown, Kama Mustafa and Mark Henry to retain his Intercontinental Championship

    Kane and The Undertaker defeated Triple H and Kurrgan after Ken Shamrock returned to the WWF and shockingly sided with Kane and The Undertaker to cost Triple H and Kurrgan the match

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    August 31, 1998 – November 15, 1998

    The Austin era kicked off with a celebration which saw new WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin celebrate with his fans in the ring before being assaulted by Owen Hart who demanded his rematch. Austin called him a no good for nothing loser from Canada and said that he didn’t deserve a rematch but Vince McMahon reminded Austin that the rematch clause was in his contract and that at Breakdown the two would face off for the WWF Championship.

    New European Champion Tiger Ali Singh called himself the greatest wrestler in the history of the WWF and stated that he would be the European Champion for many years to come, however, he was assaulted by Bradshaw who beat him down and said that he was sick of being a lackey for other people and that it was his time to shine in the WWF. Former champion Jeff Jarrett got himself in the feud and a triple threat match was booked for Breakdown.

    Paul Bearer introduced Ken Shamrock, Kane and The Undertaker as The Unholy Alliance and said that they were here to take over the WWF and plunge it into deep darkness. Triple H was none too pleased at this new alliance and stated that he was going to save the WWF and called upon Steve Blackman to help him and a 3-on-2 handicap match was scheduled for Breakdown!

    Tajiri won a fatal four way match to earn the right to challenge X-Pac for the Light Heavyweight Championship at Breakdown.

    The Brood continued to spook and scare the WWF roster but Cactus Jack and Terry Funk were not pleased that they lost and they attacked The Brood with steel chairs and beat them down. They proclaimed that they were next in line for a shot at the titles but The Dudley Boyz said that Cactus and Terry were the reason they lost at SummerSlam. The dissention in the ranks of Extreme Violence allowed the New Age Outlaws to once again insert themselves in the WWF Tag Team Championship picture and a fatal four way, sudden death match for the title was scheduled for Breakdown!

    Intercontinental Champion The Rock proclaimed that after he defeated the entire Nation, there was absolutely nobody that could defeat him. He stated that he was going to take the month off from competition but newly debuting Val Venis said otherwise when he attacked The Rock and demanded a shot at the title which was granted.

    “Bullet” Bob Armstrong made his WWF debut by introducing his new protégé, a man he calls “Bullet” Bob Holly. Holly would score a number of victories over the likes of Blackjack Windham, Flash Funk, and Crush, all with the help of Armstrong of course, before becoming embroiled in a feud with Goldust who would stalk Holly and Armstrong and show up at their homes. Holly eventually got fed up and challenged Goldust to a match!

    --

    Breakdown – September 27, 1998

    Jeff Jarrett regained his European Championship by defeating Bradshaw and Tiger Ali Singh in a triple threat match, Jarrett pinned Singh

    The Dudley Boyz became 3-time WWF Tag Team Champions when they won the fatal four way match against Cactus Jack and Terry Funk, the New Age Outlaws and Edge and Christian of The Brood

    The Unholy Alliance was victorious in a 3-on-2 handicap match against Triple H and Steve Blackman

    Steve Austin retained the WWF Championship by successfully defeating Owen Hart and after the match, The Unholy Alliance beat Austin to a bloody pulp

    --

    Steve Austin called out The Unholy Alliance and said that he was not afraid of them and that he would defeat each and every one of them. The Alliance assaulted him and destroyed him once again. De-facto leader Ken Shamrock would stake his claim for a shot at the WWF Championship at Judgment Day and Paul Bearer claimed that Austin would rest in peace at the event.

    The mystery assailant at Breakdown was revealed to be the debuting Test who stated that he’s heard enough of The Rock and challenged him to a match for the title later that night which The Rock accepted and Test was victorious in to become the new Intercontinental Champion. The Rock was none too pleased and invoked his rematch clause for Judgment Day!

    The Headbangers surprisingly won a tag team battle royal to become the new #1 contenders to the WWF Tag Team Championship. Cactus Jack and Terry Funk, however, would brutally assault them and injured them and claimed themselves as #1 contenders and challenged The Dudley Boyz to a hardcore match at Judgment Day…which they accepted!

    Bob Holly continued his undefeated streak in the WWF, all thanks to his manager Bob Armstrong by defeating Vader, The Sultan, The Patriot and Savio Vega but Goldust was not done with either of them and continued to stalk them and make their lives hell and a loser leaves town match was scheduled for Judgment Day.

    European Champion Jeff Jarrett introduced his newest insurance policy in Kurrgan and stated that nobody would want to mess with them, however, former champion Tiger Ali Singh wanted his title back and challenged Jarrett to a rematch with Kurrgan locked in a shark cage which Jarrett accepted.

    X-Pac lost the Light Heavyweight Championship to Kaz Hayashi on the October 12, 1998 edition of Raw and a rematch was scheduled for that Sunday at Judgment Day.

    Bob Holly defeated Goldust in a loser leaves town match forcing Goldust to lave the WWF

    The match between Steve Austin and Ken Shamrock for the WWF Championship ended in a no contest when Kane and The Undertaker got involved and Triple H, Steve Blackman and The Rock hit the ring and an all-out brawl started between all the men

    --

    Triple H formed his team for Survivor Series to face The Unholy Alliance at Survivor Series with his team consisting of himself, Steve Blackman, The Rock and the WWF Champion Steve Austin! Paul Bearer and The Unholy Alliance introduced a new member to the alliance which turned out to be the man formerly known as Mabel, Viscera! The two teams would engage in huge brawls each and every week leading up to Survivor Series.

    Intercontinental Champion Test set his sights on Jeff Jarrett and the European Championship and proclaimed that it was time to unify the two belts. Jarrett and Kurrgan would stay away from Test at first but Jarrett would eventually set Kurrgan loose on Test but he would get his ass handed to him. Jarrett was reluctant at first to accept Test’s challenge for a European Championship match at Survivor Series but would eventually accept!

    X-Pac and Christian’s feud would get pretty intense when The Brood kidnapped X-Pac and seemingly make him vanish. However, two weeks later X-Pac would stagger out of the boiler room of the arena, disoriented and Christian would take advantage of this by defeating him for the Light Heavyweight Championship on the November 2, 1998 edition of Raw. X-Pac would then disappear from WWF programming (he had suffered an injury at Judgment Day). Brian Christopher would make his presence felt as he would attack The Brood and challenge Christian to a match for the Light Heavyweight title which would be accepted.

    Meanwhile, Gangrel and Edge would become embroiled in another feud with The Dudley Boyz in which they would be granted a WWF Tag Team Championship match at Survivor Series.

    After being successful in his feud with Goldust, Bob Holly would move into a heated feud with former WWF Champion Owen Hart in which both men would put on a series of classic matches all of which were won by Holly thanks to interference from Bob Armstrong and Hart challenged Holly to a match in the Hart Family Dungeon and Holly accepted with hesitation!

    Kama Mustafa, who had recently changed his gimmick to The Godfather, began feuding with Val Venis over one of his “hos” who turned out to be none other than Terri Runnels. The two wanted her managerial services and a ladder match for such services was scheduled for Survivor Series!

    Bradshaw realizing his singles career had stalled, began looking for a new tag team partner and failed at first until he teamed up with D-Lo Brown and the two instantly clicked and began a winning streak and were placed in a tag team turmoil match at Survivor Series with the winner getting a future shot at the WWF Tag Team Championship.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    November 16, 1998 – January 24, 1999

    Following their victory at Survivor Series, The Unholy Alliance began a series of cryptic promos stating that there was a puppet master behind the scenes that was going to help to destroy the WWF! WWF Champion Steve Austin claimed that he was not afraid and that he would take on any member of The Unholy Alliance at Rock Bottom and the four members then fought in a fatal four way match which was won by Viscera, giving him the chance to take the WWF title from Austin at Rock Bottom.

    Val Venis, with his new manager Terri Runnels, began a winning streak that spanned for several weeks before stating that he was going to take the European Championship from Test and challenged him to a match at the Rock Bottom event which was accepted!

    Meanwhile, “Bullet” Bob Holly and his manager Bob Armstrong continued to run through the WWF roster defeating anyone who stood in his way. He proceeded to call out the Intercontinental Champion, Test and challenge him to a match at Rock Bottom for the title, stating that one of their undefeated streaks had to come to an end and Test accepted, saying that there was no way he would lose either one of his titles that night!

    Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown invoked their WWF Tag Team Championship shot for the Rock Bottom event.

    Christian once again retained his Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Brian Christopher and after the match he was assaulted by a man dressed in police clothing and carrying a nightstick. The next week, Christopher introduced him as The Big Bossman and stated that he would be the one to help him regain the Light Heavyweight title before challenging Christian to a ladder match at Rock Bottom which was accepted!

    Triple H blamed The Rock and Kurrgan for the loss at Survivor Series and called upon Steve Blackman to team up with him for a tag team match at Rock Bottom and the match was set!

    --

    Rock Bottom – December 13, 1998

    Brian Christopher finally regained the Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Christian in a ladder match with the help of The Big Bossman.

    The Rock and Kurrgan were successful in their match, defeating the team of Triple H and Steve Blackman

    Test retained the European Championship by defeating Val Venis

    Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown won their first WWF Tag Team Championship by overcoming the team of Edge and Gangrel, The Brood

    Bob Holly continued his undefeated streak and won the Intercontinental Championship by defeating Test!

    Steve Austin retained the WWF Championship by defeating Viscera. During the course of the match, Triple H interfered on Austin’s behalf but hit him with a low blow following the match and called himself the puppet master, famously claiming “it was me Austin, it was me all along!”

    --

    Following the shocking ending of Rock Bottom, The Unholy Alliance would proclaim that now that Triple H was in charge, it was time for them to take over and destroy the WWF. WWF Champion Steve Austin would say that it doesn’t matter what odds were stacked against him, he would win every time. Triple H said that while he would love to take on Austin at the Royal Rumble, he was going to go ahead and give Ken Shamrock that opportunity and declared himself for the Royal Rumble match along with Viscera, The Undertaker and Kane. Austin would run Viscera down with his pickup truck and say that he was only the first victim of The Rattlesnake who was going to save the WWF!

    When a video was leaked of Light Heavyweight Champion Brian Christopher talking smack about his bodyguard The Big Bossman, the Bossman turned on him and beat him to a bloody pulp, injuring him in the process. Vince McMahon announced that the title had been vacated on the December 28 episode of Raw and the next week saw X-Pac return and win a Light Heavyweight battle royal to become the new champion on the January 4, 1999 episode of Raw!

    Edge and Christian of The Brood realized that Gangrel was simply using them and that it was time to branch out of their own and they attacked Gangrel and beat him down before declaring for the Royal Rumble match, however, Gangrel was not done and challenged them to a handicap match, which was accepted!

    New WWF Tag Team Champions Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown celebrated with beers and cigars in the ring before being attacked by the returning New Age Outlaws who would say that they deserve one last shot at regaining the tag titles at the Royal Rumble. Bradshaw and Brown agreed and said that if the Outlaws lose, they must leave WWF forever!

    Several qualifying matches were held for the Royal Rumble match and they were won by the likes of Owen Hart, Marc Mero, Jeff Jarrett and Tiger Ali Singh, setting up a star studded Royal Rumble!

    Bob Holly and Test’s feud continued with Test beating the hell out of Bob Armstrong, which, of course, did not sit well with Holly who agreed to put his Intercontinental Championship on the line and Test claimed that he was finally going to end Holly’s undefeated streak and regain his Intercontinental Championship!

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    Thought I'd finally drop in and leave some comments as I've been reading everything so far.

    The Unholy Alliance is an interesting storyline and to see Triple H commanding Taker, Kane and Shamrock feels odd as I'm not sure we've delved into why they are following his orders.

    A few things I'd just like some clarity on. Austin had his ankle broken but came back and had a Texas Street Fight with Michaels. Felt a bit soon as he was then out for months and never really got revenge on Shamrock.

    As for Michaels his departure wasn't explained. I know there hasn't been much backstage stuff as the storylines have been front and centre, which I like. But Michaels didn't go into the Casket Match with Taker like in reality so his back surely doesn't go out and force him into retirement. Knowing you he's probably due a comeback in a few months.

    I do like that the Tag Team Division and midcard title scenes are getting plenty of exposure and always changing, keeping the competitiveness of the divisions going. Holly as IC Champ is definitely different and it's weird to see Bradshaw team with D-Lo instead of Faarooq.

    Surprised to see The Outlaws leave as well as Cactus Jack. With Edge and Christian ending The Brood it would be interesting to see them break out and maybe start to be a dominant force in the tag division. I don't think they are ready for singles stardom just yet.

    As for the future it's looking like Triple H will win the title at Wrestlemania although a huge part of me wanted Kane to disobey orders in the Rumble forcing the rest of The Alliance to help Triple H eliminate him. Good to see Owen Hart still around too and it was great to see that he got a World Title reign.

    Keep up the good work Joey, I'll be reading for sure.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    January 25, 1999 – March 28, 1999

    Triple H and his Unholy Alliance continued to terrorize WWF Champion Steve Austin after he won the Royal Rumble match. However, Paul Bearer began plotting with Kane and The Undertaker to usurp Triple H as the leader. Steve Austin took advantage of this plotting and pitted Kane and The Undertaker against Triple H and Ken Shamrock. The four men would all engage in several brawls, with Kane claiming that he was the rightful winner of the Royal Rumble match. Vince McMahon decided to settle the score by booking Kane against Triple H with the winner facing Steve Austin for the WWF title at WrestleMania! The two were set to face off at St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.

    Intercontinental Champion Bob Holly began claiming that there was no one left for him to beat and that he would simply be the champion for the rest of his career. Owen Hart stepped up and called out Holly by saying that he cheated to win the Hart Family Dungeon match and that he wanted a rematch, this time for the Intercontinental Championship and Holly accepted for St. Valentine’s Day Massacre!

    Brian Christopher returned and called out The Big Bossman and said that it was time for revenge and challenged him to a match at St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, which Bossman accepted.

    Light Heavyweight Champion X-Pac continued his reign as champion, successfully defending the title against the likes of Scott Taylor and Taka Michinoku before seemingly meeting his match against Tajiri who knocked him out with a roundhouse kick. Tajiri would challenge X-Pac to a match for the title which would be accepted.

    WWF Tag Team Champions Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown would claim that they had no challengers and Vince McMahon decided that it was time for the first ever Tag Team Rumble match and scheduled it for St. Valentine’s Day Massacre with the winner facing Bradshaw and D-Lo at WrestleMania!

    Test would begin a crusade to retire the European Championship, claiming that it was useless and that it was time that he move on to bigger and better things but that’s when the giant known as Paul Wight made his debut, claiming that he hailed from the great country of France and that he was going to take the European Championship from Test and bring prestige back to it!

    --

    St. Valentine’s Day Massacre – February 14, 1999

    Tajiri won his first Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating 3-time champion X-Pac

    Bob Holly once again retained his Intercontinental Championship by defeating Owen Hart

    The Big Bossman destroyed Brian Christopher to claim the easy win

    Edge and Christian won the very first Tag Team Rumble which saw the returned of Hawk and Animal, Legion of Doom as well as the debut of Matt and Jeff Hardy, better known as The Hardy Boys. Edge and Christian earn a shot at the WWF Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania!

    Paul Wight won the European Championship by defeating Test

    Triple H retained his WWF Championship shot by defeating Kane in a match that saw Kane lay down for Triple H when he was commanded to do so, however, after the match Kane and The Undertaker beat Triple H to the ground

    --

    WWF Champion Steve Austin claimed that St. Valentine’s Day Massacre showed that there are cracks in the armor that is the Unholy Alliance and that at WrestleMania he would retain his title because Triple H is now weaker, however, Triple H claimed that the Unholy Alliance was back under his control because he has a secret that he is holding over them and that Kane and The Undertaker do not want to risk their livelihoods. Austin promised to find this secret but was unsuccessful in doing so in the build to WrestleMania as Kane and The Undertaker thwarted him at every turn.

    However, it ended up being Ken Shamrock inadvertently revealing the secret, that Kane and The Undertaker murdered their parents. This infuriated The Undertaker who would Tombstone Shamrock on the stage before Kane Chokeslammed him into the electrical equipment. Shamrock would attack The Undertaker the next week and challenge him to a match at WrestleMania which was accepted.

    Bob Holly would again claim that there was nobody in the back that could match his skills and that he would retain the Intercontinental Championship no matter who he was against. Former champion Test would declare his intent at a title shot, however, The Big Bossman also staked a claim. Former champion Gangrel also staked his claim and Mark Henry did as well claiming that it was time to break out from the Nation’s former shadow. Former champion Steve Blackman also stepped up which led to Vince McMahon scheduled a 6-pack challenge for the title at WrestleMania!

    X-Pac claimed that it was time for him to step up to the next level and he challenged European Champion Paul Wight to a match for the title at WrestleMania claiming that he once defeated Razor Ramon so Wight would not be a problem at all. Wight accepted the challenge.

    WWF Tag Team Champions Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown promised that Edge and Christian stood no chance at WrestleMania and Edge and Christian played a series of pranks against the champions infuriating them in the build to WrestleMania.

    New Light Heavyweight Champion Tajiri promised to take on all comers and the entire world was shocked when Jushin Thunder Liger, a staple in New Japan Pro Wrestling made his WWF debut to challenge Tajiri at WrestleMania!

    Meanwhile, the Legion of Doom and The Dudley Boyz began a feud where they both claimed to be the best team in WWF history and The Dudleys would put Hawk and Animal through tables in consecutive weeks before the Legion of Doom challenged them to a Tables match at WrestleMania which, of course, was accepted!

    Val Venis became embroiled in a feud with Owen Hart after making comments about Hart’s sister being in one of his films. Hart would challenge Venis to a match at WrestleMania to fight for his sister’s honor and Venis accepted!

    --

    WrestleMania 15 – March 28, 1999

    Edge and Christian won the WWF Tag Team Championship by dethroning Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown
