WWF Attitude Era Series Part 110: WWF St. Valentine's Day Massacre
Goldust pinned Bluedust
Yeah, let's get this one over with. Goldust does have one more run left in him as far as the Attitude Era is concerned and Goldust defeats the Blue Meanie handily, and then Blue Meanie is now with Goldust right now after that because why the hell not. Curtain Call gets the win for Goldust. Match sure was not much.
Bob Holly defeated Al Snow to win the vacant WWF Hardcore Title
This is a classic brawl. Winner of this match gets the title that was vacant after Road Dogg's injury/rehab. Snow's crazed quest for the title continues, as they brawl and we have some fun action. Both men brawl into the Mississippi River. Bob Holly managed to wrap Snow in a fence and this is enough to hold him down for the pin. The first and best match between these two in 1999, although their other matches were nothing to sneeze at.
Big Bossman pinned Mideon
This is a first hour of RAW is WAR match. Bossman scores the win with the Bossman Slam. Then the Ministry beats up Big Bossman. Much like the opener, nothing much to really speak about.
WWF Tag Team Champions Jeff Jarrett and Owen Hart defeated D'Lo Brown and Mark Henry
Kind of a let down given that Jeff Jarrett, Owen Hart, and D'Lo Brown was in that one. Mark Henry wasn't quite awesome yet, being rather green, but he can throw people around rather well. The guitar is used on Mark Henry's knee and the champions retain the title. Jarrett and Owen during another time would have had some really awesome tag team matches. Like a year later if they were around but circumstances dictated otherwise.
Val Venis defeated Ken Shamrock to win the WWF Intercontinental Title
This match was about as good as you would expect. Billy Gunn is the special guest referee. This was the match where Ken Shamrock yelled "slap me" at the top of his lungs and his storyline sister, Ryan, slapped him. Billy Gunn manages to play right into the finish of this match and Shamrock is rolled right up for the pin rather easily. Val Venis is the new WWF Intercontinental Champion.
Chyna and Kane defeated Triple H and X-Pac
Good enough match, with X-Pac shining a lot, but Triple H, Kane, and Chyna had their moments throughout this match. The finish played into the storyline set up rather well. Kane hits the Choke Slam on Triple H, which allows Chyna to get the pin. Good tag team match to continue the DX and Corporation feud.
The Rock battled Mankind to a double knockout in a Last Man Standing Match, allowing Mankind to retain the WWF Championship.
Good match and even through I should hate the finish due to the fact it was screwy, I didn't really mind it all that match. Rock hurt the knee of Mankind on Heat and it plays into the match. We have the usual stellar brawl between these two. Both men nail each other with chairs and get knocked out, unable to reach the ten count. Mankind keeps the title because champion retains on a tie.
Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated Vince McMahon in a Steel Cage Match
This was an entertaining battle. Say what you want about Mr. McMahon but when it comes time for him to take a beating, he'll take one. Austin pulls McMahon off of the steel cage and he crashes right into the table at ringside. Austin gives McMahon a beating with McMahon barely getting anything. This is what the fans want, Mr. McMahon trapped in a cage with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Paul Wight, the future Big Show, makes his WWF debut, popping up through the ring and throwing Austin right through the cage. Since Austin is outside of the cage, he wins. Finish actually worked once again.
A memorable St. Valentine's Day Massacre Pay Per View, kicks us further down the road to Wrestlemania XV, with Stone Cold Steve Austin going up against the WWF Champion Mankind, or so it seems. However a spanner is thrown in the works. What will Paul Wight do on his first night? Let's find out as the WWF Attitude Era Series continues with Part 111.
