    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!

    The Dudley Boyz retained their WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating The New Age Outlaws in a brutal Tables 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!

    --

    King of the Ring – June 28, 1998

    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

    Tiger Ali Singh finally won the European Championship by defeating Jeff Jarrett in a Steel Cage match and following the match, Bradshaw turned on Jarrett and sided with Singh who handed him a briefcase full of cash

    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

    The Rock retained his Intercontinental Championship by defeating Val Venis but after the match, The Rock was brutally assaulted by an unknown man

    Bob Holly, with the help of his manager Bob Armstrong defeated Goldust

    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.

    X-Pac regained the Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Kaz Hayashi and after the match he was attacked by Christian of The Brood

    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!

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    March 29, 1999 – June 27, 1999

    The night following WrestleMania 15 saw Vince McMahon announced Dan “The Beast” Severn as the new WWF Commissioner. Severn promised that there were going to be less shenanigans in the WWF with him in charge.

    Triple H fumed over his loss to Steve Austin at WrestleMania and called out Kane saying that he was going to kick his ass and show him who the real boss is but Kane did not take too kindly to this and hit Triple H with a Tombstone. Meanwhile, WWF Champion Steve Austin would sit back and say that he was going to let the two beat the hell out of each other so he doesn’t have to defend his championship but Dan Severn said that at Backlash, the WWF title would be defended in a triple threat match with Austin defending against Triple H…and Kane!

    Road Dogg made his WWF return under the ring name Jesse James Armstrong and picked a fight with Bob Holly saying that he stole his father, Bob Armstrong, from him and Holly simply told him that he was a disappointment to the Armstrong family and that his father wanted somehow who was actually worth a damn. Jesse James was livid and challenged Holly to a match at Backlash for the Intercontinental Championship and Holly accepted, saying that it would be his easiest defense yet.

    Jeff Jarrett came to the ring wearing a suit and he called himself the next big thing in the WWF. He made it clear that he was on his way to the WWF Championship and by the end of 1999 he was going to have it! The Rock interrupted him and said that ’99 is the year of Rocky and that if Jarrett has anything to see about it they can hash it out in a match and one is scheduled for Backlash!

    New WWF Tag Team Champions Edge and Christian that they now had a stranglehold over the tag team division of the company and would remain champions for the significant future. Former champions Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown felt otherwise and demanded a rematch for the titles, however, The Dudley Boyz also put their name in the hat for a shot at the titles. While many assumed a triple threat match was on the horizon, The Hardy Boys put their names in the hat and Dan Severn decided that there would be a fatal four way match at Backlash but that it would be the first ever fatal four way…ladder match!

    Owen Hart made a heartfelt statement about how he believed that it was time to retire from the WWF. He stated that he has accomplished everything that there is to accomplish in the company and that’s when Mark Henry hit the ring and thanked Hart for everything he has done for the business before attacking him and hitting him with a World’s Strongest Splash. The next week Hart stated that there was no way in hell he was retiring until he ended the career of Mark Henry and a match was scheduled for Backlash!

    Paul Wight became embroiled in a feud with Farooq and the two engaged in several hard hitting battles, all of which ended with a double countout as the two men fought to the back, however, Dan Severn announced that at Backlash Wight would face Farooq in a Falls Count Anywhere match but that the European Championship would NOT be on the line as Farooq did not earn a title shot.

    A rematch between Jushin Thunder Liger and Tajiri for the Light Heavyweight Championship was set up for Backlash.

    Mark Henry managed to defeat Owen Hart

    Jushin Thunder Liger retained the Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Tajiri in another match of the year candidate

    Edge and Christian retained the WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating The Hardy Boys, Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown as well as The Dudley Boyz in a fatal four way ladder match

    Jeff Jarrett scored a huge victory over The Rock

    Kane won his first WWF Championship by overcoming Triple H and Steve Austin, with the help of his brother The Undertaker

    --

    The Undertaker demanded a shot at Kane’s WWF Championship due to the fact that he helped him win it but Dan Severn informed The Undertaker that he has not earned a shot and that Steve Austin has a guaranteed rematch clause in his contract which will take place at Over the Edge!

    The Undertaker was livid about not getting a championship shot and took his frustrations out on the former leader of The Unholy Alliance Triple H. The two would brawl for several weeks before The Undertaker challenged Triple H to a Buried Alive match and Triple H accepted, stating that it was time to end The Undertaker’s career…for good!

    Bob Holly made it clear that he was right when he said that Jesse James Armstrong was an embarrassment to the Armstrong family and that there is very clearly nobody that can beat him in the WWF so maybe it’s time he go somewhere that has actual competition. However, former champion Ken Shamrock attacked and beat the hell out of Holly. The two would engage in several hard-hitting matches which saw Holly win by nefarious means. Dan Severn decided that Holly would be defending his title at Over the Edge…against Ken Shamrock!

    The Light Heavyweight division had basically cleared out with Jushin Thunder Liger standing tall at the top as champion but that’s when former WCW Cruiserweight Champion…CHRIS JERICHO! made his WWF debut by assaulting Liger and making it clear that he wanted the title and he was awarded a shot at Over the Edge by defeating Tajiri, Taka Michinoku and X-Pac in a fatal four way match.

    Edge and Christian’s reign as WWF Tag Team Champions continued with victories of The Quebecers (who would soon leave the WWF) and The Headbangers before being attacked by the newly formed tag team of Farooq (now Ron Simmons) and The Big Bossman who called themselves The Enforcers and both wore police gear. They dominated the tag team division for several weeks before being granted a shot at the titles at Over the Edge.

    Jeff Jarrett continued to call 1999 the year of Jarrett and said that his victory over The Rock proved that and proceeded to put out an open challenge to face anyone at Over the Edge which was shockingly accepted by…Arn Anderson! Jarrett said that Anderson’s career would come to an end at Over the Edge.

    Owen Hart’s feud with Mark Henry continued with Hart claiming that he wanted to end Henry’s career and challenging him to another match at Over the Edge, claiming that he would not rest until Henry was out of the WWF!

    Paul Wight would defend his European Championship against the likes of Viscera, Tiger Ali Singh and Steve Blackman before being challenged by…Flash Funk? Wight thought this was a joke but Funk stated that he was ready to move to the top of the company!

    --

    Dan Severn began hyping the annual King of the Ring tournament, stating that this year would be the best one yet featuring 8 of the WWF best and brightest stars would be participating with qualifying matches taking place leading up to the event.

    WWF Champion Kane would call out Triple H and agree to give him a shot at the WWF Championship at King of the Ring…in a Hell in a Cell match and Triple H accepted stating that he was finally going to win the title.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    June 28, 1999 – August 22, 1999

    New WWF Champion Triple H began to gloat about how it was now his time in the WWF and that finally the WWF would be going back to prominence. He would continue his promo before being interrupted by King of the Ring winner Jeff Jarrett who proclaimed that he would win the WWF title and that he wanted his championship shot at Fully Loaded rather than SummerSlam and Triple H accepted the challenge!

    Bob Armstrong called out both Bob Holly and Jesse James Armstrong and told them that he was equally proud of the both of them and that they needed to stop fighting but Jesse James wasn’t convinced as he would assault Holly week in and week out. Holly finally agreed to put the Intercontinental Championship on the line yet again at Fully Loaded but told Jesse James that if he loses, he will have to leave the WWF and James agreed!

    Bradshaw challenged Paul Wight for the European Championship by saying that he defeated Wight in the King of the Ring tournament and thus deserved a shot at the title and Dan Severn actually agreed with this and scheduled the match for Fully Loaded.

    Light Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho proudly displayed his championship belt and called upon any light heavyweights in the wrestling industry to come face him and that’s when he was assaulted by two Mexican wrestlers (later revealed as WCW’s Psicosis and Juventud) who would beat him down and claim that one of them would be the champion. Jericho recruited X-Pac to be his tag team partner for a match at Fully Loaded against the newly minted Latin American Connection of Psicosis and Juventud.

    The Enforcers continued their reign as WWF Tag Team Champions, however, on the July 19, 1999 episode of Raw, Edge and Christian successfully regained the championship and a rematch was scheduled for Fully Loaded.

    Olympic hero Kurt Angle made his WWF debut in early July of 1999 and immediately targeted Tiger Ali Singh and claimed that he was here to rid the WWF of evil foreigners and a match was scheduled for Fully Loaded with the stipulation being that Singh will leave the WWF if he loses!

    Ken Shamrock returned and immediately became embroiled in a feud with former stablemate, Viscera. The two would engage in brutal brawls before Shamrock challenged Viscera for a match at Fully Loaded and he accepted!

    --

    Fully Loaded – July 25, 1999

    The Enforcers regained the WWF Tag Team Championship by defeating Edge and Christian who had won the titles only 6 days prior

    Kurt Angle successfully defeated Tiger Ali Singh, forcing him to leave the WWF

    Jesse James Armstrong shockingly ended Bob Holly’s undefeated streak and won the Intercontinental Championship with the help of his father, Bob Armstrong

    The Latin American Connection won their debut match by defeating Chris Jericho and X-Pac and following the match they claimed that this was simply the beginning and that they would not be stopped

    Paul Wight managed to retain the European Championship by defeating Bradshaw

    Ken Shamrock easily defeated Viscera by breaking his ankle with the Ankle Lock

    Triple H and Jeff Jarrett fought to a double count out after brawling to the back and thus Triple H remains the WWF Champion

    --

    Following Fully Loaded, Jeff Jarrett claimed that he was screwed and demanded a rematch at SummerSlam. Triple H refused by Dan Severn approved Jarrett’s request but appointed a mystery enforcer for the match. Triple H attempted to find out who the enforcer was but was not able to do so. Jeff Jarrett claimed that he knew exactly who it was and that it would shock WWF fans when this person helped him to win the title!

    New Intercontinental Champion Jesse James Armstrong celebrated and gloated with his father Bob Armstrong. Former champion Bob Holly gave him a sincere congratulations but introduced the man that would be taking the title from him and that’s when…KANE made his return and Chokeslammed both Holly and Armstrong. The next week Dan Severn decided that there would be a triple threat match at SummerSlam for the championship.

    Paul Wight made it clear that he would not be losing the European Championship any time soon but that’s when Kurt Angle appeared and called Wight the next foreigner that he would force out of the WWF and challenged him to a match at SummerSlam and Wight accepted claiming that he was going to show that France is not to be messed with!

    New WWF Tag Team Champions The Enforcers were elated that they had regained the titles so soon after losing them but they were subsequently assaulted by the Latin American Connection which now had another unknown masked man with them. They continued to assault them for several weeks before the masked man revealed himself to be yet another WCW wrestler Konnan who introduced himself as the leader of the stable and challenged The Enforcers to a match for the titles at SummerSlam and they accepted.

    With Juventud and Konnan already scheduled to face The Enforcers for the WWF Tag Team Championship at SummerSlam, Psicosis set his sights on Chris Jericho’s Light Heavyweight Championship and Jericho accepted the challenge by saying that he was going to stop this invasion before it even started.

    Ken Shamrock would continue his run through the roster before being confronted by Steve Austin who stated that he was going to end Shamrock’s career before returning back to the top of the WWF and a match was scheduled between the two at SummerSlam.

    Owen Hart returned after a brief absence and stated that losing to Mark Henry two pay-per-views in a row caused him to rethink some things in his career and he said that as much as he would like one last run at the top, he would be calling it quits after SummerSlam in another one-on-one encounter with Mark Henry.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    August 23, 1999 – December 12, 1999

    WWF Champion Triple H once again gloated about how he retained his WWF title at SummerSlam by stating that even if Ric Flair had not gotten involved, he still would have retained the title because he’s just that damn good. There was no clear #1 contender for the title and Dan Severn scheduled a battle royal with the winner facing Triple H for the title at Unforgiven. The battle royal was eventually won by former European Champion Paul Wight who claimed that it was only a matter of time before the title came to France. However, Test assaulted Wight and seemingly injured his knee and Dan Severn scheduled a triple threat match for Unforgiven, if Wight was healthy enough to compete.

    Meanwhile, Jeff Jarrett called out Ric Flair and proclaimed himself as the new “Nature Boy” and that he was going to end Flair’s miserable career at Unforgiven and Flair accepted the challenge by saying “to be the man, you gotta beat the man.”

    New European Champion Kurt Angle called himself the greatest champion in history because he is an American hero and would not stand for anyone trying to take the title away from him. That’s when former ECW superstar Tazz made his debut and forced Angle to pass out to the Tazzmission before challenging him to a match at Unforgiven for the title, a match which Dan Severn would turn into a submission match.

    New Intercontinental Champion Kane came to the ring the night after SummerSlam and simply dropped the belt at his feet, claiming that he didn’t want it and that there were other things that he would accomplish in due time. With the title vacated, Dan Severn scheduled a tournament for the title featuring Bob Holly, Jesse James Armstrong, Steve Blackman, Val Venis, Mark Henry, Davey Boy Smith, Gangrel and The Godfather. The tournament would come down to Bob Holly and Mark Henry who will face off at Unforgiven to determine the new champion.

    The Latin American Connection continued to run roughshod over the tag team division with Konnan and Juventud defending the titles in matches against The Hardy Boys and The Headbangers before being assaulted by The Dudley Boyz who claimed that they wanted a shot at the titles and Konnan decided that they would get a shot but that it wouldn’t matter because they’d lose!

    Light Heavyweight Champion Psicosis was assaulted by former champion Chris Jericho who wanted his title back but Jushin Thunder Liger also staked a claim to a title shot and Dan Severn decided that it would be a triple threat match for the title!

    Triple H retained the WWF Championship by defeating Test in a match that was scheduled to be a triple threat but Paul Wight was not medically cleared in time

    --

    Triple H proclaimed that he proved his point that he would not be losing the WWF Championship any time soon and that he would be taking the month off. Dan Severn agreed that Triple H earned the right to not defend his title at No Mercy, however, Test and Paul Wight would be facing off with the winner challenging Triple H at Survivor Series.

    Jeff Jarrett and Ric Flair’s feud was not finished as Flair claimed that Jarrett’s victory was nothing but a fluke and that he wanted another shot to make Jarrett submit to the Figure Four Leglock and Jarrett agreed stating that he was finally going to put the old man out of his misery!

    The Dudley Boyz demanded a rematch against the Latin American Connection and they wanted it to be in a tables match and Konnan agreed for the No Mercy pay-per-view claiming that the Dudleys were going to taste some wood.

    Chavo Guerrero introduced himself as the new member of the Latin American Connection by aligning with Psicosis. Chris Jericho was none too pleased and challenged Guerrero to a match at No Mercy and Guerrero accepted. Psicosis claimed that he would put the Light Heavweight title on the line against the winner.

    Edge and Christian began pranking several members of the roster, many of which took it in stride but the team of Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown were not happy and beat the holy hell out of Edge and Christian before challenging them to a street fight at No Mercy and they accepted!

    New Intercontinental Champion Bob Holly introduced himself as the greatest champion in history and that he will not be losing his title any time soon because he has learned from the first time not to trust anybody. This is when The Rock made his WWF return and called Holly the biggest jabroni in WWF history and that at No Mercy he would be taking the title from him!

    New European Champion Tazz made a bold statement calling Kurt Angle the worst American hero in the history of the country and that he could never win a match against “The Human Submission Machine” which infuriated Kurt Angle who demanded a rematch and was granted one.

    Paul Wight earned a shot at the WWF Championship by defeating Test

    --

    Paul Wight was absolutely elated that he is finally getting his shot at the WWF title and called out Triple H who would not show and Wight called him a coward, saying that he knows he will lose at Survivor Series and the next week Triple H would attacked him with a sledgehammer, shattering his hand. Wight claimed that he would still face Triple H at Survivor Series and would win the WWF title!

    New Intercontinental Champion The Rock cut a promo on the entire roster stating that it was now his time to be the top dog in the company but he was assaulted by The Enforcers who beat him down. The next week, The Rock claimed that he was not deterred and he would put his title on the line in a handicap match at Survivor Series!

    The traditional Survivor Series elimination match for the year became increasingly clear as Konnan, Chavo Guerrero, Psicosis and Juventud would team up to take on the team of Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown. The teams would brawl for several weeks leading up to the event.

    Former Intercontinental Champion Bob Holly introduced his brother Mike Holly and told the WWF fans that The Hollys were going to run the tag team division of the WWF and challenged any team to a match for Survivor Series and the challenge was accepted by Edge and Christian who played a series of pranks on The Hollys.

    Ken Shamrock returned to the WWF and defeated several local athletes in consecutive weeks before demanding that Dan Severn give him some competition or that he would seek out the competition himself. Severn sent out Davey Boy Smith who was subsequently destroyed by Shamrock. Shamrock would then head backstage and assault Severn in his office. Severn was on the verge of firing Shamrock but decided to give him the chance to fight for his career at Survivor Series and scheduled himself versus Shamrock!

    Jeff Jarrett called Ric Flair’s win at No Mercy a fluke of epic proportions and that the new “Nature Boy” wasn’t going to stand for it. Ric Flair said that Jarrett had not earned the title of the “Nature Boy” but that he would put that title on the line at Survivor Series and if Jarrett won, Flair would retire…for good!

    The Dudley Boyz agreed to put their WWF Tag Team titles on the line in a tag team tables turmoil match at Survivor Series which will include The Headbangers, Too Much, The Hardy Boys and Val Venis and The Godfather.

    Jeff Jarrett ended Ric Flair’s career and won “The Nature Boy” nickname by defeating Flair in an emotional match

    Paul Wight won the WWF Championship by defeating Triple H with the help of Kane who Chokeslammed Triple H through the ring

    --

    New WWF Champion Paul Wight turned heel by aligning with Kane and claiming that dark days were ahead for the WWF and that they would destroy the company. Steve Austin made his return and went after them but was quickly laid out and beaten down. Austin came back the next week and said that he wasn’t afraid of them and that he wanted his WWF Championship back. Wight claimed that he would put the title on the line BUT wanted it to be in a handicap match. Austin, not one to back down, accepted the challenge for Armageddon!

    Hot off a major career victory, Jeff Jarrett challenged The Rock to a match for the Intercontinental Championship. The Rock originally did not accept but Dan Severn said that Jarrett had earned the shot and scheduled the match for Armageddon.

    The Hollys claimed that since they were victorious at Survivor Series, they were next in line for a shot at the WWF Tag Team titles but Dan Severn said that they had not yet earned a shot but after several weeks of victorious, Severn changed his mind and granted them a shot at Armageddon.

    Triple H, livid after losing his WWF title at Survivor Series and he proceeded to destroy half of the roster before being confronted by Ken Shamrock who would lay Triple H out several weeks in a row before a match at scheduled between the two at Armageddon.

    Dan Severn decided that Psicosis would be defending his Light Heavyweight Championship against every other Light Heavyweight on the roster and scheduled a 12-man battle royal for Armageddon. Psicosis, Juventud and Chavo Guerrero claimed that they would be working together to ensure that Psicosis remained the champion.

    Konnan and the Latin American Connection assaulted Tazz in the backstage area and Konnan proclaimed that he was going to become the new European Champion and that he would change it to the Mexican Championship because Mexico is the only country that matters. Tazz agreed to put the title on the line, stating that he would choke Konnan out.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    1999 Year End Awards

    Superstar of the Year


    Triple H

    Triple H had a phenomenal 1999 which started with his first Royal Rumble match victory, which he would subsequently put on the line against Kane but he was victorious in that match as well. Although he did not win the WWF Championship at WrestleMania, he made it clear that he was not done in the spotlight as he continued to weasel his way into title matches before finally defeating Kane to win his first title in a Hell in a Cell match. Triple H would hold the WWF Championship for 141 days before losing it to Paul Wight. Although he didn’t end the year in the win column, he is certainly not done yet and 2000 will be another big year for “The Game”

    Newcomer of the Year

    Paul Wight

    Paul Wight’s WWF career started with a championship victory in his very first match, winning the European Championship. He would hold the championship for the second longest reign in the history of the belt at 190 days, 17 days short of being the longest reigning champion. Throughout 1999, Wight would use his size to his advantage as he would win the majority of his matches before losing the European Championship to Kurt Angle, however, following the loss he was catapulted into the WWF Championship picture and he would win the title at Survivor Series. 2000 looks like it is going to be a very bright year for Paul Wight as he enters it as the WWF Champion, ending his first year in the WWF on a good note.

    Tag Team of the Year

    Edge and Christian

    Edge and Christian started the year by ending their alliance with Gangrel which was known as The Brood. They would go on to win the first ever Tag Team Rumble match to earn a shot at the WWF Tag Team Championship, which they would subsequently win. Following WrestleMania, they went on to beat the odds and win a historic fatal four way. They would, however, soon lose the titles to Ron Simmons and The Big Bossman but capture them for a second time in 1999 soon afterwards. While they would lose the titles again a few days later, Edge and Christian kept themselves relevant throughout the remainder of 1999 and are poised for a huge 2000.

    Holy Shit! Moment of the Year

    The debut of the Latin American Connection

    In early July, Psicosis and Juventud from the WCW made their WWF debut by assaulting the Light Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho. The two would proceed to pick up a victory in a tag team match at that month’s Fully Loaded event and shortly thereafter went after the WWF Tag Team Champions, assaulting them week in and week out before being joined by their de facto leader Konnan who would lead them to championship gold. Their debut and destruction of the tag team and Light Heavyweight divisions marked a change in the wrestling business as no one thought they’d see WCW stars invading the WWF.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    You sure did end the 20th century on a high note! LAC almost reminds me of a mix between the Mexicools and LAX, so I'm excited to see what measure of impact they have.

    I can't help but thinking Jeff Jarrett has a very good 2000, along with guys like Paul Wight continuing on that success. I'm curious as to how Triple H and Stone Cold come into the picture, because they are high profile guys but ended '99 on the losing side of things. I suppose those will be answered in this upcoming WrestleMania season.

    Plus, can we count out an appearance by Ric Flair in '00-02? I think he'd be key on-screen if you take that route. Wouldn't be surprised if he tries to avenge Double J in a new role, when and if he returns.

    Re: One Night in Montreal

    The Road to the Royal Rumble

    WWF Championship

    December 13, 1999: Following Paul Wight and Kane’s victory in the handicap match at Armageddon, the two men claimed that the end of the WWF is near and that the two of them together are a force to be reckoned with and they challenged The Dudley Boyz to a match for the WWF Tag Team Championship later that night which was accepted.

    In the main event, Paul Wight and Kane became the new WWF Tag Team Champions, defeating The Dudley Boyz. However, after the match had ended, Ken Shamrock hit the ring and held his own for a short period of time but was soon overwhelmed by the sheer size and strength of the two men.

    December 20, 1999: Ken Shamrock opened the show by stating that once upon a time, he was known as the “World’s Most Dangerous Man” and that he is ready to take that title back, no matter what it takes. Commissioner Dan Severn proceeded to book Shamrock in a match against Kane in the main event that night. Shamrock promised to break Kane’s ankle!

    Ken Shamrock managed to get a disqualification victory over Kane after Paul Wight got involved and the two viciously beat Shamrock and no one came to his aid as the show went off the air with Wight holding the WWF title high in the air with Kane by his side.

    December 27, 1999: Ken Shamrock confronted Commissioner Dan Severn and demanded a handicap match against Paul Wight and Kane but Severn informed him that he had to find a tag team partner to go against them. Shamrock was livid but spent the rest of the night search for a tag team partner.

    When it came time for the main event, Paul Wight and Kane awaited Ken Shamrock and the partner of his choosing. Shamrock came out and talked about how the man he selected as his partner had made a name for himself down South and introduced Chris Benoit to the WWF fans. Shamrock and Benoit would be victorious in the non-title match.

    January 3, 2000: On the first Raw of the new millennium, Dan Severn announced that Paul Wight and Kane would be putting their WWF Tag Team Championship on the line against Ken Shamrock and Chris Benoit but later in the night, Shamrock was found laid out in the back presumably having been attacked by Wight and Kane so the championship match would not take place.

    January 10, 2000: The WWF Tag Team Championship match finally takes place with Paul Wight and Kane defending their championship against Ken Shamrock and Chris Benoit, a match which would see Shamrock and Benoit claim victory to become the new champions with Shamrock claiming the pinfall on Wight.

    Following the match, Ken Shamrock would claim that since he scored the pinfall on Paul Wight, he should be next in line for a shot at the WWF Championship, something that Dan Severn happened to agree on and scheduled the match for the Royal Rumble with a contract signing taking place the next week!

    January 17, 2000: On the go-home episode of Raw, a contract signing was held between Paul Wight and Ken Shamrock for their WWF Championship match at the Royal Rumble. The signing was cordial enough but as any contract signing in the past it soon delved into a brawl which shockingly saw Shamrock put Wight through the table and end the show by holding the WWF title high in the air.

    The Road to the Royal Rumble

    Tag Team Rumble

    December 13, 1999:
    The Dudley Boyz would lose their WWF Tag Team Championship to the team of Paul Wight and Kane and were livid over the loss.

    Meanwhile, The Hardy Boys picked up a victory over Edge and Christian.

    December 20, 1999: The Dudley Boyz challenged any team in the back to a match to prove that the are the top team in the WWF, a challenge which was answered by Bradshaw and D-Lo Brown. Bradshaw and Brown picked up a surprising victory which led Bubba Ray and D-Von to trash the ringside area.

    The Hollys scored a victory over The Headbangers.

    December 27, 1999: Juventud and Psicosis of the Latin American Connection claimed that they should be the #1 contender's to the tag team titles and that the LAC was about to take control of the WWF once again and they assaulted The Hardy Boys and Edge and Christian in the backstage area with the help of Konnan and Chavo Guerrero. Konnan put out a warning to everyone in the WWF tag team division stating that the LAC was going to make the year 2000 hell for all of them.

    January 10, 2000: The LAC continued to run roughshod in the WWF tag team division, claiming victories of The Headbangers, Too Much and The Hollys. Konnan once again put out an ominous warning that there was no team capable of defeating them.

    January 17, 2000: With so many teams vying for a shot at Ken Shamrock and Chris Benoit's WWF Tag Team Championship, Dan Severn announces the second ever Tag Team Rumble, a match which will feature ever tag team in the WWF! Konnan was furious and said that the LAC should automatically get a shot at the titles but The Dudley Boyz were not having any of that and ended up putting Konnan through a table before tossing the remaining members of the stable over the top rope, signifying that thy should be the favorites in the match!
