Alright, Over the Edge this Sunday. Austin not even throwing a punch is the exact opposite of his character. Kind of a pointless promo here. Robert Gibson winning what would be a pretty lackluster fatal four way is a disappointing. Man, Morton and Gibson just were a waste of space in 98. I pray you keep the straps away from them. Great Light Heavyweight match. Keep this division relevant, please. It would be nice to have good in-ring matches on Raw with these guys, but you've been doing a good job of that so far. Not a bad win for Bradshaw. I see Shamrock retaining his title without a doubt, though. LOVED the Goldust promo. Lone Gladiator is bad ass nick name. Really short Raw main event. Great feud advancement with Foley and Taker. Funk and Hart winning was best, as it gives Funk a chance at beating Hunter this Sunday at Over the Edge. Waltman and Hart put on a good at match IRL at KOTR, so I expect nothing else at OTE. Edge saved this part of the show. Jacqueline stripping a jobber to his under wear probably sent the crowd dead silent. Man, I love Al Snow. He's a great character, and he can play off himself, which is awesome. Mark Henry with the win in another fatal four way is decent, I guess. Huge main event, Kane chokeslamming Austin to "hell" is awesome. Good close to the show. Not a bad show, some high points and low points.
Over the Edge
Shame the Lightweight match didn't make it onto the card. It is stacked, though. Oh poop, it's Dan Severn! Cornette's stable is huge. I like it. Great Goldust promo.Women being stripped down to their body? Vintage Attitude Era. Glad Hart and X-Pac got a decent amount of time in the ring. Nice post-match attack from Sean. No shocker with The Rock picking up the win. I could see Rock winning King of the Ring, if I'm honest. Foley being Makind only re-assures my belief that you are going with HIAC at King of the Ring. Glad that Mankind picked up the win, even though I see Taker winning their next battle, if there is one. Not so sold on Shamrock getting himself DQ'd. At least it keeps Shamrock with the strap without hurting Bradshaw. That is great and not so great booking in one match. Mind f**k. Happy to see The Outlaws retain their tag titles. I have no idea who can take them, at the moment. No strong faces teams active at this time. I Quit match sounded great, and was the perfect match type for Funk to "retire." I'm pretty sure Funk isn't done, but I bet EWR is having him retire in June. Big main event. I hated when the main events ended by DQ back in the Attitude Era. Stone Cold not standing tall to end the show is different. Maybe there won't be a HIAC match, and perhaps a Fatal Four Way? Interesting, many things you can do right now. It was a great PPV for back in 98, I can say that. It had a pretty strong under card. Good stuff, can't wait for King of the Ring.
Keep track of how Shamrock is working with a broken hand thanks to Bradshaw. Would you rather a 290 pound Texan put you out indefinitely or you get away with the title AND your health? Sure, uncharacteristic for a face to do, but think of it from that perspective.
