Match 1: WCW United States Championship Match Diamond Dallas Page vs Jeff Jarrett An unusual way to kick off the show as Diamond Dallas Page and Jeff Jarrett are the first match of the night on Halloween Havoc, it was at Bash at The Beach that DDP won the United States Title from Jeff Jarrett and Jeff Jarrett wants redemption tonight, will he re-capture the WCW United States Title at Halloween Havoc. Jarrett and DDP start the match by locking up in the center of the ring. DDP hits a hard right hand on Jarrett after Jarrett began taunting DDP's pose. Page begins to punch away at Jarrett and whips him into the ropes hitting a back body drop. DDP grabs Jarrett and tosses him over the top rope to the floor. DDP takes Jarrett to the outside and rams him into the steel steps and tosses him back in the ring. Jarrett fights back after a failed Diamond Cutter attempt by surprising him with a suplex. Jarrett then begins to go for the legs of DDP and Jarrett can sense becoming the WCW United States Champion once again, Jarrett goes to the top rope and hits an outstanding cross body on Page but only gets a nearfall. Jarrett then grabs Page and rams his head into the buckle and Jarrett takes the momentum in this match, Page tries to fight back but Jarrett continues to battle back. Jarrett whips Page off the ropes and hits a powerslam. Jarrett goes for the cover again but Page somehow is able to kick out at 2. Jarrett then goes for the legs of Page and tries to go for the figure-four leg lock but Page throws him off and Page kicks Jarrett in the gut and tries a suplex but can't do it cause of his bad ankle. Jarrett reverses it and tries to go for a suplex but DDP is able to reverse it and finally, he's able to hit a suplex on Jarrett despite his bad ankle. Page starts to make his comeback by heading to the top rope and nailing a big flying clothesline on Jarrett. DDP goes for the cover but Jarrett kicks out at 2. DDP and Jarrett exchange right hands with Page getting the better of them. Page runs off the ropes and hits a clothesline sending him and Jarrett over the top rope to the outside, and what a back and forth encounter this has been between the two. Page tosses Jarrett back in the ring and Page kicks Jarrett in the gut and hits a discus clothesline knocking Jarrett down. DDP goes for the cover again, but Jarrett still kicks out and DDP punches Jarrett and takes him into the buckle and Jarrett knees him in the gut and goes to the top rope again but DDP catches him with an inverted atomic drop and DDP whips Jarrett into the ropes and hits a big sideslam on Jarrett. DDP goes for the cover but Jarrett once again kicks out. And now DDP could be signaling for that Diamond Cutter, it's on it's way. DDP then grabs Jarrett and attempts the move but Jarrett pushes him off and kicks Page in the gut and Jarrett runs off the ropes hitting a powerful leaping DDT on Page. That had to have hurt Page right there. Jarrett goes for the cover again but Page kicks out. Jarrett whips Page into the ropes again but Page counters Jarrett's back body drop into the Diamond DDT, a move we haven't seen in a long while. And now Page wants to go for that Diamond Cutter again. Page sets up for the Diamond Cutter again, but Jarrett counters it one more time and takes DDP down by the legs and applies the figure-four leg lock. Jarrett applies the figure 4 on Page and Page might not have no chance to tap out. Page is somehow able to make it to the ropes but it looks like the damage may be done to Page's leg. Jarrett grabs Page and tries to go for another figure four but Page pulls him off and surprises Jarrett with the Diamond Cutter. Page covers, 1. 2. 3. And Page has retained the WCW United States Title, what a hard fought matchup by Page and Jarrett, and what a match to kick off Halloween Havoc.

But when he saw Hogan turn his back on the entire WCW at Bash at The Beach and when Hogan dropped those leg drops on his head, he remembers it in the back of his head. They were friends in the big leagues, Hogan even helped Savage win the WWF Championship, and they formed the Mega Powers together, and whether the good or bad personal issues they've had they got through it. But he doesn't understand why he would wanna turn on the business that helped make him a wrestler again and join those punks. Savage says that it's obvious that he wants to beat Hogan pretty bad for the hurtful things he's said to Miss Elizabeth. Okerlund asks speaking of Elizabeth. Elizabeth said on Monday Nitro in Hulk Hogan's promo that Elizabeth still loves him, is it true. Savage says of course he does love Elizabeth, and yes. They have had personal issues too, but that's in the past. All he wants is since he's come to WCW is to get the WCW Championship. And he wants to become WCW Champion, this is his chance. He's got a shot to make history tonight. Savage says that he wants Hulk Hogan at his best, and win or lose. He is going to fight for the heart of WCW, oooh yeah dig it.

WCW believed the Real Sting, but he was glad to see the Real Sting back last Monday Night, and he hopes that he's going to be watching because WCW has been missing Sting and the NWO's been going around dominating everyone. And now Luger is going to get a piece of his own for everyone when he takes on Sting and he also hopes that Randy Savage takes back what is rightfully WCW's, and that is the WCW Title, but right now, NWO Sting, it's time for a lesson to be taught.

Hogan grabs Savage and goes for a suplex on the concrete but Savage counters with a suplex of his own and Elizabeth although she is a member of the NWO begins to clap for approval.

Savage then picks up Hogan on the entryway and Savage picks up one of the headstones and cracks it over Hogan's skull. Savage then sees his monster truck, ohhh no. Savage is going to do it again. Savage is going to run over Hogan over with it. Savage then gets untop of the monster truck and picks up a microphone saying that he's going to run over the son of a bitch. Savage then gets into the monster truck and gets ready to run over Hogan, but Dibiase is in to save Hogan and Hogan rolls out of the way. Savage was close on running over Hogan once again and had he got the opportunity. Hogan would've been dead meat. Hogan then returns to the ring with Savage following but wait Dibiase has handed Hogan the WCW World Title Belt, this match is still No Disqualifactions and this match is legal. Savage enters the ring and doesn't realize that Hogan is playing possum. Hogan then tries to whack Savage with the WCW Title Belt but Savage sees it and hits a back atomic drop knocking Hogan down. Savage then grabs the WCW Title Belt and tells Hogan to get up and Savage waffles Hogan with the WCW Title belt. Savage goes for the cover, 1. 2. No, Hogan kicks out again.

Hogan kicked out of the signature elbow drop by The Macho Man. Savage is thinking what do I have to do to beat Hogan. Savage goes to the top rope again and goes for another elbow and here comes Elizabeth. Savage sees Elizabeth in the ring and tells her to get back outside, but wait a second Elizabeth sprays Savage in the face, it looks like a can of spraypaint. WHAT?. ELIZABETH JUST SPRAYED SAVAGE WITH THAT SPRAYPAINT!. Unbelievable. Elizabeth has fooled Savage all along. Hogan then picks up the WCW Title Belt and hits Savage with it. Hogan runs off the ropes and drops the leg on Savage. Hogan covers Savage to get the three count and retain the WCW Title with the help of Miss Elizabeth. Winner and Still WCW Champion: Hollywood Hogan
Hogan and Savage are both down, but Elizabeth has sold her soul to the New World Order. The Giant then comes out with a bag full of ice reviving Hulk Hogan. Hogan gets to his feet as Elizabeth begins to smile. But why?. Why would Elizabeth turn on the Macho Man. Hogan then hugs Elizabeth, Hogan and Elizabeth, they were in all of this together. They were in all of this together. This is shocking, Nash, Hall, Vincent, Syxx and Scott Norton all come out to celebrate with Hogan. Hogan then picks up the microphone and says if there's any question who the real king of Hollywood is, But is there any question who the real queen of Hollywood Is, Miss Elizabeth. Miss Elizabeth has seen the great light, she never loved Randy Savage, she's in love with a real man and that man is Hollywood Hogan. Hogan says that he's tired of WCW and Ted Turner and that if anyone steps in the ring with the NWO and Hollywood Hogan, then they too will be taken out, we cut backstage to the limousine and the driver opens up, and IS THAT?!. IT LOOKS LIKE RODDY PIPER!. HE'S A FORMER WWF SUPERSTAR!. RODDY PIPER IS HERE IN WCW!. Hogan and the rest of the NWO look on the Video Wall shocked as the familiar music plays in the arena. The NWO are getting ready to fight, And there he is. RODDY PIPER IN WCW!. Roddy Piper is here in WCW!. Hogan looks like he has seen a ghost, remember the undisputed history between Hogan and Piper, it was 1985 when they wrestled at the first WrestleMania, Hogan tells the rest of the NWO to leave the ring. Piper enters the ring and it looks as if WCW has shocked the world. Hogan begins to make his move but Piper has a mic in his hand and tells Hogan not to even think about it. Hogan and Piper then exchange Hi's with each other. Piper tells Hogan if he's bored and tired, well he's come here to break his monotony. Piper then tells the rest of the NWO to jolly off and take a break. Hogan tells Piper that there is a big lack of communication because when Hogan said that he made wrestling, when he made the WWF, when he said that he owned and controlled wrestling, now that he thinks about it, it was him and Piper running neck and neck, selling out Madison Square Garden, and even tearing down Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Federation. Piper tells Hogan to shut his big fat mouth for a second and it's his turn. He is not here to represent the WCW, NWA, SPCA, WWF, ECW, WCCW, USWA, The SOB. Although he can be one SOB when he wants to be. Hogan tells Piper to be careful, real careful. Piper says that he made a lot of money being real careful and he did it kicking Hogan's ass all the way to the World Wrestling Federation. Piper says that if it wasn't for Hollywood Hogan, Professional Wrestling Would Not be what it is today. Well he's got news for Hogan, he's come to Hogan for a reality check, Because Piper is just as big an icon in this sport as he is. And even though he never won the WWF Championship. He made the WWF rich himself too. And he's heard Hollywood Hogan made a lot of movies, well Roddy Piper's made a lot of movies himself. Piper says that he's just a big, a Hollywood Movie Star as he is. Piper tells Hogan that he's going to shoot with this one, he doesn't care, he's a multi-millionaire too. He was fighting when he was 15 years old and had over the best matches including Hogan. He's been stabbed 3 times. Hogan tries to speak again, but Piper tells Hogan to shut his mouth and tells Hogan where was he when he was 15 taking on elderly people in the garage?. Where was he?. Playing the Bass Guitar at a Bar and Grill?. Hogan speaks again and tells Piper that he would call a spade to spade, because they dominated the World Wrestling Federation together, The heck with the back story, they fought and teamed together and he doesn't have a problem with Piper, as he was on Hollywood making the movies in becoming a multimillionaire, he has to give the devil his due, they ran neck and neck. Piper then responds if Hogan remembers WrestleMania 1, If he hadn't knocked out Mr. T or took on the entire New York City Police Department or slammed a record over somebody's head, change the court back or have his way with Liberace. And they didn't hate Piper so much, does Hogan think he wanted to be cheering so much. Hogan goes to speak but Piper tells Hogan that he's the only guy that he has never been able to beat and he'll tell Hogan something else, he is as big an icon in this sport and whether or not, he has the guts to put his hand out and shake his hand and admit that it wasn't him that brought all these people here. It's all the fans that made Hollywood Hogan. It's all the fans that made Hulkamania, it's all the fans that made professional wrestling great. Hogan tells Piper that they've had wars to settle the score which never got settled but Hogan thought that Piper took time off with his family and was at peace with himself. But now that he sees Piper face to face, being the honest man that he is. He admits that Piper is big as a star as he is. Hogan and Piper shake hands as Piper tells Hogan to straighten up. Hogan tells Piper on the way to the bathroom, he's supposed to squat on this one. And that gets Piper upset again. Hogan tells Piper that he is messing with Hollywood Hogan and the NWO, Piper steps back in Hogan's world, and Hogan can see Piper's got the makeup on his face and the way he sees it. They could have the war that didn't settle the score. Piper tells Hogan that he is the reason he has no hair. Hogan then yells that his day is coming. Hogan then tries to leave the ring but he forgets his WCW Title Belt and Piper continues to rant on him telling him that he saw the act him and Miss Elizabeth pulled on his buddy Savage. Piper tells Hogan that this is his sport, and Hogan can have it for now, but he will not allow Hogan and the rest of his goons to run roughshot all over WCW. And if Hogan says he wants to settle the score, well Piper says this, Hogan and Piper's fight will not be for the WCW Championship, it will be Sunday, December 29. 1996, No time limit, no excuses, there must be a winner, the only way this match can end is by pinfall or submission. At Starrcade in his first WCW Match, he wants to fight Hulk Hogan. Hogan says that Piper wants this war to settle the score at Starrcade. He's on. Piper then tells Hogan that Hogan knew he saw things his way, but before he goes. He wants to leave Hogan a little parting gift. Piper then snatches the WCW Title Belt and hits Hogan in the face. Piper has made an impact here in WCW, he has challenged Hulk Hogan to a match at Starrcade, but not only that. He nailed Hulk Hogan with the WCW Title Belt. JJ Dillon has to sanction this match, but will it be official?. Piper leaves the ring and poses with the fans as Halloween Havoc goes off the air.
All signs point to Hollywood Hogan taking on Piper at Starrcade I wonder if the nWo WCW World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line in this match? I mean you have 2 icons of this sport going up one on one with each other...both have transcended the business both are Hollywood movie stars ran neck and neck in the WWF and now in WCW are set to cross paths again I wonder if the nWo will get involved in this match? But never mind since the title isn't on the line it will be a straight up fight to the finish then I wonder who that favors more?

WWF RAW - October 28. 1996
Clips are shown of the rivalry between Stone Cold and Bret Hart starting with Stone Cold attacking Brian Pillman at Mind Games, and Bret Hart returning to the World Wrestling Federation to accept the challenge of Stone Cold Steve Austin at Survivor Series, but tonight just three weeks away from Survivor Series. Bret Hart and Stone Cold will both be interviewed. Bret will be in Calgary, and live in the WWF Headquarters. Stone Cold Steve Austin, and plus a big Intercontinental Title Match between Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Marc Mero followed by Mankind taking on Crush.
Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are your hosts for tonight. Lawler talks about how the New York Yankees winning was big, well tonight, his prediction is that Hunter Hearst Helmsley is going to win the Intercontinental Championship for the second time.
Match 1: Mankind w/Paul Bearer and Papa Shango vs Crush For Crush, this is about redemption as his friend Kama who is now Papa Shango has turned his back on him and wants to take his frustrations out on Mankind. Crush gets the early advantage in on Mankind. Crush whips Mankind into the ropes and hits a clothesline taking him down. Remember, eight days ago. Mankind defeated The Undertaker in a Buried Alive Match, and now at Survivor Series, Mankind must have the opportunity to end The Undertaker once and for all for good. Mankind finally gets the momentum back in his favor, but Crush somehow makes a comeback and almost gets the win by hitting a powerslam on Mankind but Mankind kicks out at 2. Crush grabs Mankind and goes for the heart punch but Mankind counters the Heart Punch and delivers the mandible claw to Crush. Mankind takes Crush down and Crush has no choice but to tap out. And Mankind has just sent a message to The Undertaker. Winner: Mankind
After the contest, Mankind continues to apply the hold as Paul Bearer and Papa Shango all come in. Mankind and Paul Bearer hold Papa Shango up and wait a minute. Shango's got his voodoo stick, is he going to curse Crush?. Just as they get set to do it, Thunder and Lightning go off in the arena and the lights begin to flicker as The Undertaker's gong begins to sound in the arena. Then suddenly the voice of The Undertaker is heard. Taker says that he's here, the reports of his demise has been exaggerated. Taker says that at Buried Alive, Mankind got the best of The Undertaker when he had all of the superstars of the World Wrestling Federation to come help him defeat The Undertaker at his own game. But the fact of the matter is, Mankind can't kill what is already dead and he cannot destroy which does not wish to perish. And at Survivor Series, Madison Square Garden. The World will be witnessed to another rebirth of The Undertaker. Then suddenly, the lights flicker as something is lowering down the rampway as Taker continues to speak. Taker tells Bearer that after he's done with Mankind, it will just be him and Paul Bearer, nobody that will come and save Paul Bearer, And if they do, then their fate in the WWF is sealed. So The Undertaker's taken the liberty to preview to Paul Bearer his future and his fate, at Survivor Series, Paul Bearer and Mankind, This is what The Undertaker is going to have in store for Mankind and Paul Bearer. Shango gets out of the ring and pulls out the covers to reveal the shark cage with Paul Bearer on it. Taker says that it's going to be the same cage that Paul Bearer will be put in, and once after Mankind is done. Paul Bearer will pay for his deadly crimes he committed at Summerslam. Taker says that until Survivor Series is over, he will never rest in peace. But he can enjoy Mankind and Paul Bearer burn in hell for all of eternity. Taker then laughs as a lightning bolt strikes the ring. The Undertaker has played more mind games on Mankind and Paul Bearer.
Vince and Jerry turn it over to Dok Hendrix for the Survivor Series update. Hendrix announces that the night before Survivor Series, at the Beautiful Marriott, Eight new members will be inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame, just before Hendrix talks more. Stone Cold comes out and tells Hendrix that nobody cares about eight old farts getting a trophy handed to them. Austin warns Hendrix to do his damn job, then Hendrix goes over the Survivor Series card, including a new match, and it is a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match, and it will be captained by the Current Intercontinental Champion Marc Mero as Marc Mero teams up with Rocky Maivia, Yokozuna, Fatu and Jake "The Snake" Roberts to take on the team of Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Bam Bam Bigelow, Skip, Goldust and Brian Christopher. Hendrix talks about Bret vs Austin and talking about Bret being in Calgary. Austin says that how come is Bret live in Calgary and he says that the WWF flew Austin all the way from Texas. Austin says that things like this is people are going to get their ass kicked and that's the bottom line, and the bottom line is at Madison Square Garden. He is going to walk all over Bret Hart.
Match 2: Jushin Thunder Liger vs Sonny Rogers Jushin Thunder Liger has to be very upset about what happened with Tatanka joining the Nation of Domination and turning on him as well. Liger just completely squashes Rogers and hits him with the Ligerbomb to get the victory. Winner: Jushin Thunder Liger
After the Match. Faarooq, Tatanka, Mabel and The Public Enemy all come in to attack Jushin Thunder Liger, they begin to surround the ring, but wait a minute from the crowd is Ahmed Johnson, Just as The Public Enemy and Tatanka and Faarooq enter the ring, they begin to escape the ring. Ahmed and Liger stand tall in the ring with Ahmed grabbing the microphone and saying that Faarooq thought he was lucky last summer by trying to injure him and robbing him out of the Intercontinental Title. Well guess what, Ahmed's still standing, Ahmed says that he's back and he's got a score to settle with Faarooq. So at Survivor Series, Ahmed suggests that he and Faarooq settle things, last year at Survivor Series, Ahmed was the sole survivor, but this year, he wants to assemble a team to take on the Nation of Domination at Survivor Series, Ahmed says that he's already found his first partner and that is Jushin Thunder Liger. Ahmed says that at Survivor Series. Faarooq is going down.
Cameras cut to Bret Hart in his home in Calgary playing with his cat and Stone Cold in the WWF Studios with a lady trying to put make up on Austin, but Austin tells her to get the hell out of here and tells her that a hooker like her should hit the streets in that outfit.
A promo is shown of Flash Funk again as it says "Flash Funk is coming to Survivor Series".
Match 3: Billy Gunn w/Sunny vs David Haskins A squash for Billy Gunn as he's broke away from Bart Gunn and has joined up with the likes of Sunny. Gunn totally squashes Haskins. Haskins tries to get some offense in but Gunn is able to put Haskins away by hitting a rocker dropper followed by a diving leg drop off the top rope and gets the victory. Winner: Billy Gunn
Both Stone Cold and Bret Hart are on split-screens as the Interview between these two is a heartbeat away.
Vince McMahon then finally introduces Bret Hart and Stone Cold together as Stone Cold is in the WWF Studios and Bret Hart is in Calgary. McMahon thanks both Bret and Stone Cold for their patience. McMahon turns the first question over to Bret Hart. McMahon says that some say the reason is Bret took so long in making up his mind to come back to action, there are a number of reasons, but among them is he knew that Steve Austin was the man who had challenged you, was that one of the reasons why he was ready to make up his mind, Bret says not at all, looking at 12 years of his life and the more years in that, because he's grown up with wrestling without mauled by giants and great wrestlers for years, and it just took it's toll and he admits that Stone Cold is one of the greatest wrestlers and he knew immediately upon seeing him that he was dealing with a tough wrestler, but he had nothing to do with his decision, Austin says that basically he's saying yes Vince, Stone Cold is going to kick Bret's ass. Bret says that Stone Cold needs to clean up his language as far as Stone Cold kicking Bret's ass. He doesn't know if Austin's got what it takes to kick Bret's ass, because Bret is back in the WWF, he's been off for a long time and he's ready of this match. He is better than he's ever been in his whole life. McMahon cuts them off and says that Bret hasn't been in the ring since that fateful night of WrestleMania 12 at Anaheim, CA and that there must be some ring rust. Would it not have been more wise to accept Stone Cold's challenge. Austin tells Bret to answer. Bret says that there might be a little rust but maybe there won't, no one is going to know how good or bad. The seven months off has affected his wrestling style. Ever since he lost the WWF Championship, he thought he didn't have it in him anymore, but it doesn't really matter to him. He just wants to go in and accomplish a lot things in the WWF starting right now and what better way to take on Stone Cold who he said it before in his live interview and he will say it again, he is the best wrestlers of the World Wrestling Federation until November 17, McMahon asks if Stone Cold defeats him, this man has great confidence in himself and he's trying to make a name for himself. And Stone Cold wants to live off of Bret's reputation and McMahon asks if Bret could continue his comeback in the WWF if Austin does defeat him. Bret says that's a very likely possibility and he's thought about that and he is willing to accept defeat, if he loses, he can get right back up on his horse like a gun fighter and make the most of it, because Austin is the 1996 King of The Ring, but Bret is also a 1994 King of The Ring winner, and he's been WWF Champion three times. Austin then cuts him off and tells Bret to shut up, win, lose, draw. Bret, it ain't over between Bret and Austin, Austin tells Bret that Bret is going to have to kill Austin first and that's the bottom line and that's the truth. Austin will always be on Bret's ass. Bret tells Austin that is why he's the excellence of execution. Austin then impersonates Bret saying that he is the real best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. No longer is Bret the Hitman. Austin 3:16 is the Real Hitman, he won the 1996 King of The Ring and he sent both Razor Ramon and Roddy Piper packing to WCW. And he will also send Bret Hart to WCW after Survivor Series is over. Bret then says that everyone thinks that he's coming back and he has that built up impression in his head that he's going to clean the WWE up, he knows that it's gonna be a real hard job, no matter what. He is going to come at Austin at a 100% like never before. Austin says that Bret needs to accept the fact that it's Austin's house. McMahon says this interview is over and that they are running out of time. Austin then gets upset saying that he's been here all night and he's been looking for a fight, so he ain't leaving yet and he can stop counting him down because Austin's got a damn problem with the production assistant. Austin grabs the Production Assistant and begins to beat him down with kicks and punches. Austin tells the Production Assistant that it ain't fun and games to him. Austin then goes back and says that next week and mentions to Vince that he has it on good authority that Brian Pillman will be live from his home in Cincinatti, OH. They go to Bret and Brian's home, but why didn't they do it in Austin's house of Victoria, TX and if anyone is going to Brian's house next week, Well, Stone Cold will be there because if they are going to have a little party with a freak, he'll be there and that's the bottom line. Austin says that he will finish the job to Brian Pillman at his house like he did at Mind Games and that's the bottom line. Austin then grabs the production assistant and hits the Stone Cold Stunner. The commentators then say that Austin has gone out of control.
Match 4: WWF Intercontinental Championship Match Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs Marc Mero w/Sable The crowd are stunned that Stone Cold Steve Austin is going to come to Brian Pillman's next week that they are focused on the Intercontinental Title being up for grabs between Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Marc Mero, before the match. Vince says that Police have been called at the WWF Headquarters for Stone Cold. Helmsley and Mero have a brief exchange with lockups with Mero taking the advantage over Helmsley. Mero hits a few armdrags taking Helmsley down, and remember the last time the Intercontinental Title changed hands on RAW was when Marc Mero won it. Helmsley fights back and hits a high knee followed up by a clothesline. Helmsley goes for the cover but Mero kicks out at 2. Helmsley continues to dominate the match and nails a backbreaker on Mero. Helmsley goes for another cover but Mero kicks out again. Mero fights back and whips Helmsley into the ropes but Helmsley reverses it and Mero hits a flying forearm taking down Helmsley. Mero makes a comeback and hits an outstanding suicide dive taking down Helmsley, and remember both Mero and Helmsley will captain both their teams at the 1996 Survivor Series. Helmsley and Mero both get back in the ring and Helmsley nails Mero with a beautiful DDT. Helmsley then goes for the cover but Mero resilency kicks out again. Helmsley continues to dominate this contest and just beats down Mero but Mero fights back and hits a german suplex knocking Helmsley down to the canvas. Mero goes for the cover again but Helmsley kicks out at 2 again. Mero and Helmsley are putting on a back and forth clinic. Helmsley rakes the eyes and hits him with a spinebuster. Helmsley goes for the cover again but Mero kicks out at 2. Remember it's the Intercontinental Title, both these guys know what it's all about. Helmsley heads to the top rope and goes for something but Mero gets to his feet and climbs to the top rope on Helmsley and hits a superplex off the top rope. Mero goes for the cover again but Helmsley kicks out again at 2. Something's gotta give between these two. Helmsley kicks Mero in the gut and tries to go for a pedigree but Mero hits a back body drop on Helmsley. Mero then heads to the top rope and hits a beautiful cross body on Helmsley. Mero goes for the cover again but Helmsley kicks out again. Mero scoops up Helmsley and slams him to the canvas, and remember the Intercontinental Title is hanging in the balance. Mero then heads to the top rope and then sets up for the wild thing and he hits it. Mero hits the wild thing on Helmsley. Mero goes for the cover, 1. 2. But Helmsley's foot is on the rope. Mero can't believe it. Mero then lifts Helmsley up for something but Helmsley kicks Mero in the gut and goes for the pedigree, but again Mero catapults Helmsley down to the canvas and Mero grabs Helmsley and back suplexes him down to the mat, what a physical Intercontinental Title Battle this has been. Mero heads to the top rope again and goes for another Wild Thing but Helmsley rolls out of the way and Mero is in pain. Mero gets up only for Helmsley to kick him in the gut and finally Helmsley hits the pedigree on Mero. Helmsley covers Mero and the referee counts to 3 and Helmsley has won the WWF Intercontinental Championship for the second time. What a match. Winner and New WWF Intercontinental Champion: Hunter Hearst Helmsley
Hunter Hearst Helmsley has captured the WWF Intercontinental Title for the second time, And what a comeback Helmsley has had ever since his downward spiral of losing matches, but now he is the WWF Intercontinental Champion again for the second time in his career. Helmsley didn't need any help to do it. But you gotta tip your hat off to Marc Mero. He fought hard and is not ashamed of what he did. Marc Mero will be the Intercontinental Champion again soon, but tonight. Hunter Hearst Helmsley has the gold again.
After the show. One of the police officers begin to escort Stone Cold out of the WWF Headquarters with Austin telling the Police Officer that he's a star and when he's a star, he does whatever. Then Austin sees a set of blue lights and tells the Officer if he did this. The Cops tell Austin to calm down, but Austin says that Dunkin Donuts is over there, take two blocks to the right. Austin tells the Police Officers that he's not going to be arrested tonight because if he's arrested. Then he will sue the Police Department cause he's a star and he's got a big match against Bret Hart. Austin threatens them to tie his shoe, the cops then try to calm Austin down, but Austin just continues to harass. Austin says that they are not taking him to jail, because he's going to cooperate and he's leaving, but what he does to Brian Pillman next week, it will be something he's going to go to Jail for.
In the Arena. Vince talks about Next Week's show. Vince hypes the return of The Legion of Doom as they take on Bam Bam Bigelow and Skip in a Tag Team Match next week, and also Shawn Michaels will be in action taking on Papa Shango. And what will happen with Brian Pillman and Stone Cold Steve Austin?. Lawler prays for Austin's safety as RAW goes off the air.
- Battle of the captains for Survivor Series...Hunter Hearst Helmsley is on a roll I mean last week on RAW he beat Mr. Perfect he sent him packing out of the WWF and now Hunter Hearst Helmsley beats Marc Mero to become the new WWF Intercontinental Champion...now Helmsley is a 2 time WWF Intercontinental Champion and he is also a former King of the Ring winner in this diary too winning it in 1995 but now that he is once again the WWF Intercontinental Champion it only begs the question of who Helmsley will pick to join his Survivor Series team? I wonder who Marc Mero will choose to join his Survivor Series team?
- Marc Mero as captain and his 4 teammates for the 5 on 5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match are Rocky Maivia who will be making his WWF debut, Yokozuna and Fatu a tag team in there and the final teammate to make up the 5 is none other than Jake The Snake Roberts...that is quite a coup for Team Mero...and on Team Helmsley you have Hunter Hearst Helmsley the new WWF Intercontinental Champion, Bam Bam Bigelow & Skip a tag team, Goldust a former WWF Intercontinental Champion and then you have Jerry The King Lawler's son Brian Christopher as the 5th man for Team Helmsley...I can bet King will probably be so happy about that
- I can predict that next week on RAW we will see the Pillman's Got a Gun segment should Stone Cold Steve Austin go to Pillman's house next week
- Gotta love Austin...he does what he wants when he wants ain't no one gonna stop him and Stone Cold acting like Stone Cold in this interview with Bret Hart and the production assistant trying to count Austin down...Austin having to be escorted out by security...Austin is a star
- Billy Gunn beating a jobber...well Billy Gunn now he doesn't have Bart Gunn he is on his own now as a singles wrestler but now that he is on his own he has Sunny as his valet I mean we know what Sunny is all about but now that they are paired up together I mean sky's the limit for Billy Gunn
- The Nation of Domination have their team for Survivor Series that being Faarooq, Tatanka, Public Enemy and Mabel that is 5 superstars on 1 team already...but then again Ahmed Johnson he has his 1st member of his team and it is none other than Jushin Thunder Liger so it begs the question of who the other 3 teammates will be for Ahmed Johnson's team?
- Mankind beating Crush...well he had Papa Shango with him and he also had Paul Bearer with him so no doubt Crush was going to lose here it was essentially 2 on 1 well 3 on 1 if you count Paul Bearer so obviously Crush was distracted and that is all it took for Mankind to take advantage and then post-match as they are beating down on Crush you have Undertaker playing mind games on not just Papa Shango but on Mankind and Paul Bearer as well...Undertaker's gong the thunder and lightning the shark cage I loved every minute of it...you have to admit Mankind, Papa Shango and even Paul Bearer were afraid
- The Legion of Doom making their return to WWF and on RAW next week as they take on Skip & Bam Bam in a Tag Team Match I can't wait
- Shawn Michaels taking on Papa Shango next week...Michaels has to worry not just about him but also about Mankind and Paul Bearer not to mention Michaels has to worry about the WWF Champion Vader showing up as well as Vader's teammates but then Michaels has his teammates who are Sycho Sid and The Legion of Doom

WCW NITRO - October 28. 1996
A clip is shown of what happened at Halloween Havoc with Hollywood Hogan defending the World Heavyweight Title against Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth turning her back on Randy Savage to join the NWO, then another clip is shown of Roddy Piper making his WCW Debut confronting Hogan and hitting him with the WCW Title Belt but not before Hogan accepting Piper's challenge at Starrcade. But will J.J. Dillon make that decision because he is in the house and he will also talk about a new concept for World War III.
Eric Bischoff, Larry Zbyzsko and Bobby Heenan are your hosts for WCW Nitro, they talk about the outcome of Halloween Havoc. They also announce that they are going to see what happened at Halloween Havoc,
Match 1: Harlem Heat w/Sister Sherri vs Meng and Barbarian w/Jimmy Hart Despite the Outsiders winning the WCW Tag Team Titles at Halloween Havoc, the tag team scene is still heating up as Harlem Heat take on Meng and Barbarian. Meng and Barbarian have the upper hand in this match and they want to regain that momentum because of last night's victory, but there was one Dungeon of Doom Member that did not come out victorious and that was Kevin Sullivan. Booker T and Stevie Ray then regain the momentum in this contest, but Meng and Barbarian are just too strong and they wear down Stevie until Stevie makes the hot tag to Booker T who comes in a house of fire. Booker almost gets the win by hitting Meng with a sidekick but Barbarian breaks up the count. And that allows Stevie Ray to come in and we got a pier four brawl. Stevie clotheslines Barbarian and himself over the top rope to the floor. Meng grabs Booker and tries to go for a Tongan Death Grip but Booker counters it and nails Meng with a modified uranage, and Booker gets the win for his team. Winners: Harlem Heat
After The Match. Mean Gene Okerlund gets in the ring and interviews Harlem Heat asking about what happened at Halloween Havoc when The Outsiders won the WCW Tag Team Titles. Stevie talks saying that last night at Halloween Havoc, the WCW Tag Team Division took a hit when The Outsiders won the Tag Team Titles, but not only did it not kill the WCW Tag Team Division. It can make them stronger, there are a lot of things going on in WCW, but it's time that the Tag Team Titles return to WCW for good. And they don't care who they have to steamroll. They want the WCW Tag Team Titles. Booker speaks saying that this has been a tough year all around not only for them, but for WCW theirselves, but what Booker and Stevie saw last night when they saw Kevin Nash and Scott Hall have the WCW Tag Team Titles around their hands, it made them sick to their stomach. Booker says that if Nash and Hall want to put the WCW Tag Team Titles against a real team, try to come to Harlem so they can kick their punk asses, and together, WCW will unite just like it always has been against the New World Order. Just as Harlem Heat are leaving the ringside area, the cameras reveal to see someone with Black and White face paint and the commentators acknowledge that it's Sting, it looks like Sting is observing the show untop of the rafters. Sting is here on WCW Nitro tonight like he was last week.
Backstage. Mean "Gene" Okerlund interviews Eddie Guerrero. Okerlund asks Guerrero if why he requested this interview?. Guerrero says that tonight he wants to challenge Rey Mysterio for the WCW Cruiserweight Title because the last time he and Mysterio fought for the Cruiserweight Title, he was close, now he doesn't want to be close again, he wants another re-match at the Cruiserweight Championship and if Rey's got the guts, then all Rey has to do is accept Eddie's challenge.
Match 2: Jeff Jarrett vs Hardbody Harrison Jeff Jarrett was close on winning the TV Title last night but he gets to go one on one with Hardbody Harrison. Harrison gets some of the advantage in, but Jarrett is just on fire tonight and hits Harrison with that modified Russian Leg Sweep to get the victory. Winner: Jeff Jarrett
Outside the arena. A Limousine pulls up in the arena and it looks like the rest of the New World Order are here, it looks like they are still very happy despite Roddy Piper's appearance last night, Hogan speaks letting all the fans know that tonight is going to be a NWO Party. And look who is with Hogan and the rest of the NWO. Miss Elizabeth after turning her back on Randy Savage.
Nitro returns with a look at Sting still untop of the rafters. This has been a darker side we have seen from Sting ever since half of the WCW Superstars did not trust him at Fall Brawl in the War Games Match.
Match 3: Big Bubba w/Jimmy Hart vs Renegade Renegade hasn't had a lot of momentum going ever since this last year since he lost the TV Title, but he does put up a decent fight with Big Bubba, but Bubba fights back and gets the win with the Bubba Slam to get the victory. Big Bubba very dominant ever since he's joined the Dungeon of Doom. Winner: Big Bubba
After The Match. Jimmy Hart picks up the microphone and says that Last Night wasn't a great night for the Dungeon of Doom, Although The Dungeon of Doom won the six-man tag team match, Chris Benoit has gotten away, And now Woman has paid the price for it because of what Kevin Sullivan did to her last night. Mark Jimmy Hart's words, they are still not finished with the Four Horsemen, even though the war with the NWO is still going on. They are still not finished with the Four Horsemen.
In The Ring. Mean Gene Okerlund gets ready to announce J.J. Dillon who makes his way out to the ring. Okerlund talks about how Halloween Havoc was a huge success, including the surprise WCW Debut of Rowdy Roddy Piper who confronted Hollywood Hogan. Dillon says that Halloween Havoc was indeed a great success, but as far as the Piper/Hogan thing goes, there are a few things that need to be settled. Last Night, after Randy Savage lost the match. Nobody had not heard from Randy Savage, there was original plans that Randy Savage could've been on the show tonight, but he has not been seen all day or all night. The next thing he wants to address and that is yes, Roddy Piper has made his WCW Debut and he did challenge Hulk Hogan to a match at Starrcade. But, the main problem is. WCW Officials have not been able to confirm that match yet, because he and Eric Bischoff feel that it's best for the company that if this match happens, Piper and Hogan have to sit down and sign a contract. But from his understanding, Piper is not here tonight. But Friday Night before Halloween Havoc. Piper called WCW and he asked for their time and yes, the person he wanted to call out was Hollywood Hogan. He made a phone call directed to Eric Bischoff and Eric Bischoff gave him the go-ahead. But as far as the match between Piper and Hogan at Starrcade goes, unless Piper & Hogan both have a contract in their hands. The Match at Starrcade between Piper and Hogan has been put on hold for now. Piper is not here tonight, but he will be here at a future WCW Nitro Event to personally talk to Hulk Hogan. Another thing, the Cruiserweight Title Match between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio is on for tonight. J.J. then says one more thing, at the next PPV. They are going to do something unprecedented that has never been done in the history of WCW. A 60-Man Over The Top Rope Battle Royal, there will be 3 rings. If anyone is eliminated from the first and second ring, they can wait until they battle again in the third ring. Now these Superstars will be from WCW, but there will be some other talent like we've never seen here in WCW before. And the winner of this contest will have an opportunity to face the WCW Champion at SuperBrawl 1997 for the WCW Title. All WCW Superstars get a chance, and sadly. The NWO will have a chance to be in this match. So, that is all for the announcements and he hopes all the fans enjoy WCW Nitro.
Match 4: Lex Luger vs David Taylor w/Lord Steven Regal & Bobby Eaton Lex Luger fresh off a big win over NWO Sting is looking to get back at the WCW World Heavyweight Title as he takes on David Taylor in what is a physical contest between these two. Taylor gets in a bit of momentum against Luger and almost wins the match by hitting a diving shoulder block but Luger immediately kicks out at 2. Taylor tries to go for a piledriver on Luger but Luger counters it into a backbody drop and makes a comeback whipping Taylor into the ropes nailing a powerslam followed up by a flying forearm. Luger grabs Taylor and hits the Rebel Rack and Taylor has no choice but to tap out. Winner: Lex Luger
Just as Luger begins to celebrate his victory, he sees something in the crowd and that looks like the Real Sting still in the face paint. Luger begins to get out of the ring and the cameras see Sting leaving the arena and what has gotten into Sting lately?. This has been Sting's attitude since Fall Brawl. Luger goes backstage and tries to look for Sting, but Sting is nowhere to be found. Luger is on his hands and knees saying that he doesn't care where Sting is just as long as he accepts his apology and they need Sting back in WCW.
Match 5: The Thrillseekers vs The French Canadians w/Cpl. Parker The Thrillseekers just 24 hours after losing the WCW Tag Team Titles take on the French Canadians. The French Canadians also have regained Cpl. Parker as their manager, The French Canadians are also fresh off a big win over the Steiner Brothers in a Flag vs Flag Match. This is a great tag team match between all these four Canadians. Jericho and Jacques start the match off and Jericho gets the advantage in this contest. The Thrillseekers gain the momentum in this contest, But The French Canadians battle back in this match and wear down Storm. But Storm fights back hitting a double dropkick on both men and Storm makes the hot tag to Chris Jericho. Jericho comes in a house of fire and Jericho almost gets the win by hitting Pierre with a German Suplex but Jacques breaks up the count and here comes Storm hitting Jacques with a running clothesline knocking both men over the top rope to the floor. Jericho then hits a bulldog on Pierre and then goes for the lionsault but wait a minute Cpl. Parker's got his cane and he hits Jericho with it while the referee was distracted by Storm and Jacques's fighting. Pierre heads to the top rope and hits a diving clothesline on Jericho to get the victory not without controversy. Winners: The French Canadians
Match 6: WCW Cruiserweight Championship Match Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio Eddie Guerrero made the challenge and it is official, the WCW Cruiserweight Title between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio is on the line, Guerrero and Mysterio start the match off with a lockup in the center of the ring. Mysterio gets the better of the lockup but Guerrero hits him with a shoulder block and Mysterio nails Guerrero with a few armdrags. Guerrero rakes the eyes and whips Mysterio into the ropes and goes for a back body drop but Mysterio hits a tornado DDT and Guerrero fights back and goes for a suplex but Mysterio counters it with a suplex of his own and these two have great chemistry together in the ring. Guerrero whips Mysterio into the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Mysterio hits a dropkick taking Guerrero down. The two go back and forth for a good five minutes. Mysterio hits an outstanding cross body on the outside to Guerrero. Mysterio tosses Guerrero in the ring and whips Guerrero into the ropes but Guerrero reverses it and hits a tilt-a whirl backbreaker on Mysterio. Guerrero goes for the cover on Mysterio but Mysterio kicks out. Guerrero and Mysterio continue to fight on and both men hit each other with a modified cross body takedown and both guys are down and who will get the advantage, they both get off and begin to exchange blows with one another. Guerrero grabs Mysterio and goes for a powerbomb but Mysterio tries to go for a hurracarana but Guerrero grabs him and hits a modified electric chair drop on Mysterio. Guerrero goes for the cover again but Mysterio kicks out at 2. Mysterio battles back and hits a facebuster taking down Guerrero and these two are just pounding one another, it's all about the Cruiserweight Championship. Guerrero and Mysterio both head to the top rope and Mysterio hits a sunset flip modified powerbomb just as Guerrero was going for a hurracarana. And what a fight this has been between Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio. Mysterio goes for the cover but Eddie Guerrero kicks out at 2. Guerrero fights back and kicks Mysterio in the gut nailing not one, not two, but three suplexes, Guerrero calls this asumingly the three amigos. Guerrero heads to the top rope and goes for a frog splash but Mysterio rolls out of the way. Mysterio heads to the top rope and goes for the West Coast Pop, but Guerrero counters it into a powerbomb. What a back and forth contest, and it's here on WCW Nitro. Guerrero sets up Mysterio for another powerbomb but Mysterio counters into a hurracarana rollup, and the ref counts 3, and Mysterio has retained the Cruiserweight Title in this unbelievable match, after the match. Both Mysterio and Guerrero shake hands, and what an excellent match between these two. Winner and Still WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Rey Mysterio
A clip is shown of the Hogan/Piper confrontation at Halloween Havoc, Then it turns over to the commentators with Bischoff having a concerned look saying that he has to apologize to everyone for the match between Hogan and Piper at Starrcade being held up.
In the Ring, the NWO's music hits as they make their way down to ring, and the ring is filled with Champagne, and look who is sitting in the stands. A.C. Green. Hall is the first to speak saying his "Hey Yo" spiel. Hall says that last night history was made as him and the big man Kevin Nash won the WCW Tag Team Titles over those teenage heartthrobs The Thrillseekers and as far as they're concerned as far as the WCW Tag Teams holding a candle to Hall and Nash, that's not going to work. Because Hall and Nash have planned to become the best damn WCW Tag Team Champions of all time. So with that being said, they have spraypainted the WCW Television Title, the WCW World Heavyweight Title and now they are going to spraypaint the WCW Tag Team Titles and make it the NWO Tag Team Titles. Hall and Nash both simolutanesly spray the WCW Tag Team Title Belts. Nash is the next to speak and gives a shoutout to his two closest buddies up north. Nash says that ever since they've been taking over WCW. They've put people out of WCW. They got rid of Sting who is on the rafters, and they don't know where his allegiance is, but the truth be told. The New World Order has now dominated Pro Wrestling, They have taken what they wanted. Syxx then speaks and says that the titles they've took, the WCW Title, the Television Title and the Tag Team Titles, but he wants to let it be known then he wants the Cruiserweight Title, the NWO are going to take everything in their way. Hogan is the last to speak and tells the NWO'ites to make him feel at home. Hogan says that being the John Wayne of the 1990s came through the whole organization of the NWO. They've told everyone what would happen and as they strutted by the soldiers of the WCW. There was no question in Anyone Else's mind is the NWO was the only body, superior body in the Professional Wrestling Business, they conquered everything and won, they are the reason why they are beating the WWF in the ratings. But matters at hand, Randy Savage. Macho Man, if he was watching from his hospital bed, He wants Savage that he has nothing but the utmost respect for him. But Savage has lost everything now, Miss Elizabeth does not love Savage as Elizabeth smiles to what Hogan is saying. Elizabeth is in love with a real man and Elizabeth has proven that for over the years everytime when Hogan and Savage teamed up when they formed the Mega Powers. Hogan says that the whole WCW was put on Savage's back. And with all the powers in the little teeny Slim Jim, Savage couldn't cut the mustard and that's why he's not here tonight. And Savage will never be seen again in WCW as long as Hulk Hogan has something to say about that. Hogan moves on and says that the thing was so electric after proving that the NWO reigned supreme. Hall and Nash won the WCW Tag Team Titles, Hollywood Hulk Hogan showed the world that he was nothing but box office from Head to Toe. If there is a question in anyone's mind who the Superstar of the 90's is. Who is at the top of the list. It ain't Shawn Michaels nor Bret Hart and it sure as hell ain't Ric Flair. The Superstar of the 90's is Hollywood Hulk Hogan. But last night, one of the greatest wrestlers, the red haired stepchild Roddy Piper was man enough to admit that he idolized Hulk Hogan and couldn't lace up his boots, nor carry his bags. And when Hogan looked in Piper's eyes after he kept admiring his accomplishments. He saw the fear in his eyes, and as he turned his skirt and ran, that was the best decision of his life. And if Piper comes back to WCW like that stunt he pulled last night, he will make sure Piper never wrestles again. He will make sure Piper will go down and Hogan will prove that he was the best wrestler of the 1980's, so with that said. Let the Party begin, the NWO begin to pour the champagne onto their glasses and as they begin to toast and drink, The Four Horsemen's music plays as Ric Flair comes out not only with Arn Anderson and Steve McMichael, Benoit is not here because he's taking care of Woman. But look at this, The Steiners, Harlem Heat, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ultimo Dragon, Hector Garza, Glacier, The Nasty Boys, Meng and Barbarian, Lord Steven Regal, Eddie Guerrero, Big Bubba, Rey Mysterio, The Thrillseekers, Diamond Dallas Page and Jeff Jarrett, they're all out here to show solidarity for WCW. Flair grabs the microphone and says that last night at WCW Halloween Havoc. The NWO had the last laugh, but tonight like Flair's been saying all along, it's time to stand up for WCW and stand up to the New World Order, now Luger has left the building and he's trying to look for Sting, but they are still here, and it's time that WCW takes back what is theirs. The WCW Roster march the ring and it looks like we got a brawl on our hands. The WCW Roster seems to be taking control, Nash and Hall do fight back. The Giant tosses around Cruiserweights like there's no tomorrow. The Brawl spills on the outside and Flair and Hogan are the only two left and it's Flair getting the upper hand on Hogan and Flair takes down Hogan and look at this, he's going to lock the Figure Four Leg Lock on Hogan, but here comes Elizabeth. She begins to grab Flair by the hair, what the hell has gotten into Elizabeth?. Just as Flair makes her move on Elizabeth. Some Giant has come down to the ring and he starts to attack Flair, wait a minute that looks like Shark. We haven't seen Shark in a while. Shark is wearing a NWO T-Shirt as well. The NWO then take the advantage in their favor as they destroy people on the outside, then they begin to go to the ring to attack Flair. Shark hits not one but two powerful splashes on Flair. Hogan then begins to grab his leather belt and whips Flair with it many times meanwhile the rest of the NWO are keeping the WCW Roster at bay. Flair looks helpless, this is an all out attack. And wait a minute, There's Sting, is Sting here to save WCW. Or is he going to help out the NWO?. Sting sees what is going on, the NWO do not recognize him as they are still hurting Flair. Hogan then grabs Flair and Hogan picks him up and nails Flair with a piledriver, I swear that could've broke Flair's neck. And I think it did. Hogan may have crippled the Nature Boy here tonight. Hogan then instructs Nash and Hall to hold Flair up. Hogan grabs one of the champagne bottles and while Nash and Hall have Flair up. Hogan smacks Flair with the champagne bottle breaking glass everywhere. There is now Glass in the ring, also Debris as usual has begun to fill up, this is carnage. But why is Shark with the NWO?. Shark no longer works for WCW. Has he been reinstated by Ted Dibiase?. Hogan then grabs the spraypaint and paints on Flair's back saying NWO 4 Life. The NWO stand tall over a beaten and helpless Flair, as Bischoff says that if Sting and Randy Savage saw this. They would've been fighting alongside WCW. But they are not here. The NWO Stand tall in the center of the ring as Nitro goes off the air.

WWF RAW - November 4. 1996
Clips are shown of Last Week between Stone Cold and Bret Hart's confrontation with Stone Cold attacking the production assistant and with the security guard calling the police, but tonight. Kevin Kelly is live at Brian Pillman's home, but Stone Cold is coming to Brian Pillman's home.
Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are your hosts for RAW, but they cut us to Kevin Kelly who is at Brian Pillman's home in Suburban Cincinatti. Kelly says that in just a few moments he will be conducting a very special interview with Brian Pillman, The Interview was announced last week on RAW, and in the wake of the Announcement. Stone Cold Steve Austin threatened to show up at Brian Pillman's house. Tonight, Mr. Pillman is with his wife Melanie and their children had been sent to their Grandparents in the wake of this threat. Kelly says that Pillman is Tense, Immobile and Vulnerable, but what will Pillman do if Stone Cold carries out with this threat and shows up in Cincinatti here tonight, as well as Pillman's prognosis and recovery in just a few minutes live.
Match 1: Tag Team Match The Legion of Doom vs Bam Bam Bigelow and Skip Tonight is the RAW return of the Legion of Doom, we haven't seen the Legion of Doom in the WWF since 1995. But two weeks ago, they were announced as the partner of Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series. The match starts out with Animal and Skip. Animal unleashes his power on Skip and hits him with a clothesline. It seems like Animal and Hawk have not lost any ring rust at all. And they get this match quick and over by hitting the Doomsday Device on Bigelow to get the victory. Winners: The Legion of Doom
What a return for The Legion of Doom as Vince McMahon gets in the ring to interview The Legion of Doom. Vince congratulates The LOD on their victory and on their comeback. Vince asks the question is what drove them to come back?. Animal says that for over one year, they had to rethink their strategy and they had to refocus on their career, people are saying that time is winding down for The Legion of Doom, they've been all around the country, but it's time the LOD go away, but the truth is. The Legion of Doom will not go away. Animal says that they are back to win the WWF Tag Team Championship, now they've been 2-time WWF Tag Team Champions. And they want the gold back. Owen Hart, British Bulldog. They've been the WWF Tag Team Champions, but it's time The Legion of Doom gets back to the throne again. And make the Tag Team Division strong again. Hawk speaks and says that Owen Hart and British Bulldog may be a great team, but there's one thing they will never be and that's The Legion of Doom. OOOH WHAT A RUSH!. The LOD are back and seem movitated and focused to win back the WWF Tag Team Titles.
We go to Brian Pillman's house in Cincinatti as Kevin Kelly is ready to interview Brian Pillman, but before that they cut to the Survivor Series Report with Dok Hendrix. Hendrix talks about the incredible matchups including the return of The Undertaker against Mankind with Paul Bearer inside of a Shark Cage. And also not 1, not 2, but 3 10-Man Tag Team Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Matches, not to mention the big 8-Man Tag Team Elimination Match with Shawn Michaels's team taking on Vader's Team. They talk about the new Elimination Match just added as Bradshaw and Terry Funk look to settle their rivalry one more time when Bradshaw will have a team consisted of Tiger Ali Singh, Jerry Lawler. Papa Shango and Billy Gunn against the team of Terry Funk. Mark Henry. The debuting Flash Funk. Crush and Bart Gunn. But they talk about the Helmsley/Mero traditional Survivor Series Match. Comments are from one of the participants in Marc Mero's team and that is Rocky Maivia. Rocky says that he's glad to be a part of the World Wrestling Federation and he's very glad that he's got the chance just like his dad and his grandfather to be in the WWF, they say that anything can happen in the WWF, well let's just say with Rocky Maivia, Anything can happen, and his promise is one day be the best in the World Wrestling Federation. And what better way to show it off in the biggest stage in the World Wrestling Federation. The Big Apple, New York City, Madison Square Garden. He's just very excited for this moment and he can't wait to shine in there.
Back Live in Cincinatti, The Commentators take us to Kevin Kelly & Brian Pillman. Kelly says that this is a very tense scene in Suburban Cincinatti, After the unprovoked savage attack at Mind Games in September, He had reconstructive surgery once again on his ankle, and they could give him the prognosis and what the doctors have told him about his recovery?. Pillman says that he's alive and well. He's got excellent prognosis for 1997, and his new year's resolution is to come back to the WWF stronger than ever. But let's talk about Steve Austin's prognosis. He's been in bitter wars a few times in this sport, he's been in bitter feuds with bosses naming Eric Bischoff. J.J. Dillon, Kevin Sullivan and Ric Flair for that matter. But there's a fine line between business and private lives. Austin crossed the line, He's made it very personal when he injured him at Mind Games, and now they are operating on a whole different set of rules. Kelly tells Pillman that Stone Cold could be on his way to Pillman's house tonight. He can't move. McMahon interrupts the interview saying Mr. Austin is circling the neighborhood of Cincinatti in his truck. And whether or not from Pillman's standpoint if Pillman can hear Vince, it seems that considering his inability and physical well being with his wife Melanie. Pillman says that Steve Austin is very vulnerable as well, he attacked an injured man who recovered from a bad car accident Last April. Pillman was put in a coma for a week and never once did Stone Cold return his phone calls, all Stone Cold did was lure Pillman back into his life and he did a pretty good job about it. Pillman says Austin used him to get to the top and now with his match against Bret Hart at Survivor Series, he can forget about that. His rage has brought him to the fact that his best friend knows him better than anybody, because Stone Cold was Pillman's best friend, they went down the road together in the stinking WCW Hellhole. He knows his strengths and weaknesses and not only that his bravado. Vince asks if Pillman feels that he's a hostage in his own home. Pillman says that as far as he's concerned, Steve is a Deadman Walking!. Because when Austin 3:16 meets Pillman 9 Milimeter Gun, he was going to plant his sorry ass straight to hell, Kevin Kelly and Melanie try to calm Pillman down, But it's no use. PILLMAN HAS A GOD DAMN GUN IN HIS HAND!. WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING HERE ON MONDAY NIGHT RAW?!. One of the Cameramen are saying that Steve Austin is out there now. The cameras eventually cut to break.
Back from Monday Night RAW. Stone Cold has come to Brian Pillman's house and his friends are trying to go after Stone Cold, but Austin fights them off one by one. Austin beats them both down and throws one of them in the kiddie pool. Austin is a man possessed, he takes the other man through the window of his jeep. Austin then grabs the jeep door and rams his head into it. Austin is beating the hell out of Pillman's friends or presumably his neighbors out there.
Match 2: Tiger Ali Singh w/The Iron Sheik and Bob Backlund vs Savio Vega Tiger Ali Singh who just recently made his debut two weeks ago takes on Savio Vega. Vega hasn't had in any luck since he debuted in the WWF in August of 1994, he's had a little close calls, but he does get in a little bit of offense against Singh, the crowd however does not get into this match as they are focusing on what might be happening between Brian Pillman and Stone Cold Steve Austin, Austin beat up his neighbors and Pillman has his gun. Singh gets the win by hitting a diving bulldog off the top on Vega to get the win. Winner: Tiger Ali Singh
Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler take us to the phone with WWF President Jesse Ventura about what is going on between Stone Cold and Brian Pillman, Ventura says that he saw the interview, and yes. He did see the gun, he did see Stone Cold attack some of Pillman's friends. But with Pillman having a gun, in all of Ventura's years in the WWF that he has not seen anything like this go too far. Now if Pillman does shoot at Stone Cold Steve Austin, the match between Stone Cold and Bret Hart at Survivor Series is in jeopardy. But with Austin trying to put his hands on Pillman and Pillman wanting to shoot Austin, this is not good business for the World Wrestling Federation. Now if there is a point that if there's any violence in Pillman's house. He is going to take legal action against either Brian Pillman or Stone Cold Steve Austin. And for the USA Network, he apologizes if Pillman and Austin are taking this too far. Just as Ventura hangs up. Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler take us back to Brian Pillman's home.
They go back to Pillman's home with Melanie, Kevin Kelly and with Pillman with Gun in hand. Kelly says that Stone Cold has been making his way outside to the back of the house screaming and yelling. Pillman has this pistol out and we don't know what the hell is going on. Then suddenly Austin begins to break in the door with a glass as the commentators ask to call the police. Austin enters the house and Pillman HAS THE GUN IN HIS HAND!. HE'S GOT THE GUN IN HIS HAND!. HE'S READY TO SHOOT!. HE'S READY TO SHOOT!. But all of a sudden, the picture goes black and the satellite feed begins to go as McMahon says that the satellite feed is all they have and that they have no idea what's happening in Brian Pillman's house.
Back in the ring. Jim Ross is in the ring ready to interview the WWF Intercontinental Champion Hunter Hearst Helmsley as everyone is still stunned by what is happening here down at Cincinatti. A publicity stunt may have gone too far, Vince says that the producers have called the authorities and they should be located. Ross then tells Helmsley that last week. Helmsley's losing streak finally came to an end when he got back on track, 2 weeks ago, he retired Mr. Perfect and one week later, he beat Marc Mero for the Intercontinental Title. But at the 1996 Survivor Series. Helmsley must team up with Goldust, Brian Christopher, Bam Bam Bigelow and Skip to take on Marc Mero's team which consists of Rocky Maivia, Jake Roberts, Yokozuna and Fatu. Helmsley says that last week was a new beginning for Hunter Hearst Helmsley, see 1995. He had a strong 1995, and although he didn't win the World Wrestling Federation Championship, he was crowned the 1995 King of The Ring. The WWF Title is going to be his someday in the near future. But now, speaking of the future, let's look to the future. He is now a two-time Intercontinental Champion. And last week, he humiliated and embarrassed Marc Mero, he made history on live television by becoming the WWF Intercontinental Champion. And he will continue to make history just like he did when he sent Mr. Perfect packing and sent him away from the World Wrestling Federation for good. And the career of Mr. Perfect in the WWF is now tarnished, but the career of Hunter Hearst Helmsley has just continued, two years ago. He came to the World Wrestling Federation with a purpose. And that was to rat out the old. And that's what he did to Mr. Perfect, but at Survivor Series. He will lead his team to an army of victory. And he doesn't think Marc Mero's team has a chance. Because everytime he sees Marc Mero. He sees Sable. Helmsley then says that a relationship between him and Sable could have worked had Marc Mero not beaten him last spring. But now Helmsley sees Sable for who she is, and that is being trash. Helmsley says that trash like her does not deserve to be in the World Wrestling Federation. Then suddenly Marc Mero's music plays as he comes out on the RAW Stage with Sable. Mero says that he's heard enough talking for Helmsley and now it's his turn. Mero says that last week, Helmsley may have won fair and square. But they both know that Mero had Helmsley beat. He was closing in on victory. Mero says that in Helmsley's mind. Mero can beat him, and he just left Jesse Ventura's office just a few minutes ago and next week, he says that there will be a re-match between him and Marc Mero, but in not any kind of Intercontinental Title Re-Match, a steel cage match next week on Monday Night RAW for the Intercontinental Championship. Helmsley says that that's all fine and good, on one condition, he won't need his teammates for Survivor Series as long as Mero doesn't have his teammates, Mero says that Helmsley's on for next week. Mero says that he's going to kick Helmsley's ass for the remarks Helmsley said about Sable, and who knows. Helmsley might have a short reign as WWF Intercontinental Champion. Mero and Helmsley stare each other down as RAW goes to a break but the commentators tell us that they will try to give us more video footage of what's been happening at Brian Pillman's house.
Back on RAW. The Satellite Feed is still on, that's all they have in Brian Pillman's house. But a replay is shown of what happened earlier tonight with Stone Cold attacking Brian Pillman's friends and Stone Cold invading Pillman's house and that's the last thing we saw with Pillman having the gun in his hands.
Match 4: Shawn Michaels vs Papa Shango w/Paul Bearer What a matchup this should be as Papa Shango takes on Shawn Michaels, but the commentators are still hoping that nobody is hurt at Pillman's house and that things like that happen in the WWF. Shango gets a lot of momentum ever since he's aligned with Paul Bearer. He attacks Shawn in the first part of the match, but Shawn fights back by sending Shango over the top rope with a dropkick and Shawn hits a top rope plancha on Shango. Shango is able to fight back though and at one point tries to get a victory over Shawn by hitting a chokeslam on Shawn. But Shawn kicks out at 2. Shawn however fights back and tries to take the big man down and does so by taking down Shango with a bodyslam and a clothesline. Shawn goes to the top rope and hits an elbow drop and looks to go for Sweet Chin Music but Shango nails him with a powerslam. Shango then looks to signal for the end here, but the lights begin to flicker as The Undertaker's gong sounds, The commentators believe that The Undertaker's here. But the distraction enough by The Undertaker allows Shawn to nail Shango with the Sweet Chin Music to get the victory. What a win for the Heartbreak Kid thanks to the mind games by The Undertaker, and now Shawn can focus his attention to Survivor Series where he will team with Sycho Sid and The Legion of Doom to take on the WWF Champion Vader, the WWF Tag Team Champions Owen Hart and British Bulldog and James E. Cornette Winner: Shawn Michaels
The cameras recap to see what just transpired a few minutes ago with Pillman and Austin, Vince announces that the satellite feed has been reestablished and that they are going back live. They go back to Pillman's home where Pillman is being restrained by his friends and his wife Melanie. Kelly says that the Power's been restored and there's chaos. Nobody has seen Stone Cold Steve Austin, McMahon asks if anyone fired a shot. Kelly says that nobody got struck by any of the explosions and he doesn't know where Austin is, he saw the gun and he left, but then suddenly Austin comes back to the house, but Pillman's friends restrain him, no wait. PILLMAN'S GOT THE GUN AGAIN!. He tells Austin that he has this coming, we see Melanie on the couch bawling her eyes out, then it cuts outside to Pillman's home in where Austin is ready to leave with Pillman's friends dragging him out. But Austin is not going to leave peacefully. Austin then beats on Pillman's friends and attacks them with anything he can get his hands on. Austin then looks at the camera and yells at Pillman saying that if he was Pillman, he'd be careful, he's going to leave Pillman be, but the next time he sees Pillman in the WWF. He will cripple his career once and for all. Then suddenly the cops show up, and it looks like the police have surrounded Mr. Austin. Austin then puts his hands up like he's ready to surrender. Meanwhile in the house, Pillman is still restrained by his friends, assumingly a F Bomb is dropped. This is chaos not in the ring but at Pillman's home. Back outside, the Police have Austin's hands cuffed and it looks like Austin is going straight to jail. Then we go back to the arena in where Vince and Jerry talk about that they couldn't believe what they saw. Then suddenly Jesse Ventura is on the phone with Vince and Jerry Lawler. Ventura says that Stone Cold has crossed over the line and this was reprehensible. He told Austin or Pillman that if things got out of hand in Cincinatti, somebody would be in trouble and that person is Stone Cold, Ventura says that next week, he's going to give Stone Cold a cool off, he's suspending Stone Cold until Survivor Series, Stone Cold is barred on Monday Night RAW next week, but not Bret Hart, because Bret Hart will be on RAW. And if Stone Cold breaks his cooling off period, well his match with Bret at Survivor Series is cooled off, that's it. Vince thanks Ventura for his time and Vince and Jerry sign us off. But not before announcing another match for RAW as it will be Owen Hart and British Bulldog defending the WWF Tag Team Titles against Yokozuna and Fatu and also the steel cage match between Helmsley and Mr. Perfect for the Intercontinental Title.
Pillman's Got A Gun incident I love it...the Attitude Era is coming full swing and Austin I wonder if he will show up to RAW any way next week? I mean I can see Austin showing up not physically but via satellite from the WWF Headquarters or via satellite from Texas...either way I can see Stone Cold Steve Austin defying Jesse The Body...if anything it is only a matter of time before Stone Cold Steve Austin gives Ventura a Stunner I mean if he could hit it on Jim Ross and on everyone else what is to stop him from doing it to Ventura?
Shawn Michaels beating Papa Shango...huge assist goes to The Undertaker via Undertaker mind games and Papa Shango being so distracted by it Michaels takes advantage by hitting Sweet Chin Music on Shango to get the win...Undertaker didn't even have to get involved physically he wasn't even there he just pulled off his supernatural mind games that he plays on everyone else and Shango fell for it
Hunter Hearst Helmsley the WWF Intercontinental Champion and Marc Mero's rematch for the title I can definitely see one of if not both of their teams getting involved in this match getting the match thrown out as a result of this turning into a melee

A clip is shown of what happened last week between Stone Cold and Brian Pillman, it was very intense with Pillman grabbing a pistol attempting to shoot Stone Cold, all hell broke loose in Pillman's home. But thankfully no shots were fired. And the WWF have sincerely apologized for what happened. However, Stone Cold will not be in attendance tonight due to Jesse Ventura barring him from the building cause of what happened last week, but Stone Cold's opponent Bret Hart is here tonight on Monday Night RAW. And also tonight Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Marc Mero battle in a steel cage match for the WWF Intercontinental Title.
Vince McMahon and Kevin Kelly are your hosts for Monday Night RAW as they talk about what happened last week. Kelly says that he never experienced in his journalism career, he's been in the WWF for three months and he's never seen anything like what happened between Austin and Pillman. McMahon then goes on saying that they didn't know how serious this was. But thankfully no one was hurt last week, but Stone Cold has been barred from the building, but tonight. Bret Hart is in the house as he will talk about his match with Stone Cold at Survivor Series.
Match 1: WWF Tag Team Championship Match Owen Hart and British Bulldog w/Jim Cornette & Vader vs Yokozuna and Fatu Just 6 days before Owen Hart & British Bulldog team up with Jim Cornette and Vader to take on the team of The Legion of Doom, Sycho Sid and Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series. Owen and Bulldog have to defend their titles against Yokozuna and Fatu. Yoko and Fatu gain the momentum in this contest as they lost the titles at Summerslam to Owen and Bulldog and they want the belts back. Owen somehow battles back for his team and momentum changes in their favor. Owen and Bulldog continue to wear down Fatu until Fatu makes the hot tag to Yokozuna. Yoko makes a comeback in this contest and Yoko comes in a house of fire and almost gets the pinfall victory for his team by hitting a Belly To Belly on Bulldog but Owen breaks up the count. Fatu comes in and hits a superkick on Owen. Bulldog whips Yokozuna into the ropes and Yoko reverses it. Bulldog then tries a sunset flip but Yoko is just too big to be rolled up. And Jim Cornette begins to distract the referee and as Yoko tries to go down untop of Bulldog. Vader comes in the ring with the referee's back turned and drops Yokozuna with a massive clothesline allowing Bulldog to hit the sunset flip on Yoko and pin him to get the win, and Bulldog and Owen with the help of Vader have retained the WWF Tag Team Titles again. Winners and Still WWF Tag Team Champions: Owen Hart and British Bulldog
After the Match, as Owen. Bulldog. Vader and Cornette celebrate, Shawn Michaels's voice interrupts the Celebration as he brings alongside Sid and The Legion of Doom. Michaels says that tonight was a lucky night for Owen Hart and British Bulldog, but in New York City at Madison Square Garden at Survivor Series. Shawn Michaels is assembling the best team in the World Wrestling Federation. Sycho Sid and The Legion of Doom, and with the Legion of Doom and Sid at Shawn Michaels's side, there is no way they can lose and as far as Vader goes after he's done at Survivor Series with Vader's team. He is coming for that WWF Championship again. And if he can't win this match at Survivor Series, then he might as well not be in the WWF anymore. Michaels's team stares down Vader's team as Survivor Series is drawing closer and it's just six days away.
RAW comes back from break with a Survivor Series Report and Dok Hendrix is handling the report talking about all the matches that have been signed and sealed. And there's a breaking announcement for the match between Ahmed Johnson's team and Faarooq's Team. Teaming up with Ahmed and Jushin Thunder Liger will be the debuting tag team of Doug Furnas & Phillip Lafon, but we have yet to find out who one more partner is. Comments are from Faarooq's team with Faarooq doing the talking. Faarooq says that this feud between him and Ahmed has gone on for far too long and that at Survivor Series. Faarooq is going to finally put Ahmed and his partners in the hospital for good because they don't care who Ahmed's surprise partner is. They're going to massacre him too. Because this is a new Nation of Domination here in the World Wrestling Federation and Faarooq's dominance will not end there cause after he beats Ahmed's ass at Survivor Series, he's going to the top of the mountain and there's not a damn thing no one can do about it.
Match 2: Jake Roberts vs Tony Roy Jake Roberts who will be on Marc Mero's side at Survivor Series gets some much well needed momentum for himself as he dominates the match and puts Roy down with the DDT and that could be Brian Christopher's fate come Survivor Series if Roberts does eliminate him from the match. Winner: Jake Roberts
Match 3: Mankind w/Papa Shango and Paul Bearer vs Scott Taylor At Survivor Series. Mankind will take on The Undertaker, but tonight he looks to take out some well much needed anger out on Scott Taylor as Mankind is dominating the match, Vince McMahon announces that Stone Cold Steve Austin is on the phone. Austin is on the phone saying that the World Wrestling Federation does not need to apologize for what Brian Pillman almost did to him last week, he's considering on suing the entire Pillman Family for trying to have Brian shoot him in the head, and not only that maybe sue USA Network for what they did to him, it's unfair to Stone Cold Steve Austin. They treated him like a damn jackass. But at Survivor Series, he's going to use all that frustration and he's going to whip Bret Hart's ass and make him retire permanately and that's the bottom line. Austin then hangs up as McMahon apologizes for the profanity. Mankind gets the win by hitting the Mandible Claw on Taylor to get the victory. Winner: Mankind
After the match. The Undertaker's music blares in the arena as the lights begin to go out in the arena, then suddenly we hear Undertaker's voice. Taker says that at Survivor Series it is almost time for the Rebirth of The Undertaker. A Rebirth that is set to happen again. What Mankind and Papa Shango did at Buried Alive has made The Undertaker stronger. And at Survivor Series, when Mankind and The Undertaker step in the ring together. Mankind's going to see a new and improved Undertaker like never before. And he would advise Mankind for the next six days for God to have mercy on his soul, because The Undertaker will not. And after he takes care of Mankind, he is going to destroy Paul Bearer. And Paul Bearer cannot escape The Undertaker, his crime at Summerslam will not go unpunished. So the only thing that's left is for Mankind and Paul Bearer to both rest in peace.
Jim Ross is in the ring as some of the WWF workers begin to carry some of the cage doors to the ring just before the WWF Intercontinental Championship Match between Marc Mero and Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Ross introduces Bret Hart who comes out to a big reception. Hart will return to the ring at Madison Square Garden against Stone Cold Steve Austin at Survivor Series. Ross then gets down to it telling Bret that this is it, November 17. 1996 marks the return of Bret The Hitman Hart in the ring. It has been eight and a half months since WrestleMania 12 that we saw Bret Hart compete in the ring, but now Survivor Series. Bret Hart is going to return to action again, and before Bret has a few things to say. Jim Ross has gotten word from Jesse Ventura that the winner of this match will face the WWF Champion Vader at the next December's PPV. Bret says that he applauds Ventura for making the right decision. Something that he needed because ever since he lost the WWF Title at WrestleMania 12 to Shawn Michaels. He needed to find something and he found that. A lot of people were hoping he was going to retire. But Bret is back in the WWF. The World Wrestling Federation is Bret's home. And as far as retiring goes, he does not see that happening in the near future. Because The Hitman is locked and ready to skin some Rattlesnakes, now he will admit that Stone Cold is the toughest SOB in the World Wrestling Federation, but what Stone Cold doesn't realize is that he's in Bret's playground. He's in Bret's house. Bret says that Austin has broke in some momentum since he came to the WWF and he will give the devil his due, he won the 1996 King of The Ring, something Bret did in 1994. But Austin is no Bret Hart. Bret says that he came with a blowtorch to torch the Austin 3:16 down to the ground at Madison Square Garden. And Bret's headlined many Madison Square Gardens before. He's won the Intercontinental Title down there, he's been WWF Champion at that arena. And now he can't wait to get back in the ring facing Stone Cold Steve Austin to prove that he still has it. JR says that if Stone Cold does beat Bret Hart, then what becomes of Bret "The Hitman" Hart. Bret says that's a good question, he knows that his time in the WWF could be winding down soon. But from going to a tag team specialist to a main eventer. He's considered himself very well in the World Wrestling Federation. He's been a 3-time WWF Champion, a 2-time Tag Team Champion and 2-time Intercontinental Champion, but if Stone Cold does beat him, then he will take the win and he will come back and fight another day. Bret then says that he didn't come back here for money, he came back for all the people. He came back to once again be the WWF Champion. And at Survivor Series, his quest is going to begin after he beats Stone Cold Steve Austin and prove once and for all that he is the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. Bret then leaves the ring as the crowd pops for Bret as he makes his long awaited return to the ring at Survivor Series to take on Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Match 4: WWF Intercontinental Championship Steel Cage Match Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs Marc Mero w/Sable What a big feud this has been between Hunter Hearst Helmsley and Marc Mero, and we must inform everyone that this is the second time a Steel Cage Match has been on Monday Night RAW since January 18, 1993 when it was Hulk Hogan taking on Sycho Sid. Mero and Helmsley exchange blows right after the bell rings. Mero gets the momentum and rams Helmsley straight into the steel cage and that cage can rip your flesh wide open. Remember in this matchup, you have to win this match by either pinfall, submission or escaping the cage and also getting out of the cage door as well. Mero then heads to the top rope and hits a cross body. Mero goes for the cover but Helmsley kicks out at 2. Mero gains the momentum in this match and whips Helmsley into the ropes but Helmsley counters it into a facebuster and nails him with a clothesline and now Helmsley has regained the momentum back in his side. Helmsley grabs Mero and rams him straight into the cage wall. Helmsley continues to keep the momentum in this match. Mero tries to fight back but Helmsley kicks him in the gut and nails him with a DDT. Helmsley looks for the cover again but Mero kicks out at 2. Mero fights back as Helmsley tries to ram his head into the cage. But as Mero tries a move. Helmsley knocks him down with a high knee. Helmsley then tries to climb the cage but Mero gets to his feet and punches away at Helmsley so many times and Mero grabs Helmsley's hair and rams him into the steel cage. Helmsley then gives Mero a shot to the gut and hits a back suplex driving him and Mero back in the ring. Helmsley and Mero get back up and Mero blocks Helmsley's right hands and this time it's Mero gaining the momentum and look at Mero all fired up. Mero knocks Helmsley down with a dropkick and whips Helmsley into the buckle and hits a high back body drop. Mero heads to the top rope and hits a flying clothesline knocking down Helmsley. Mero goes for the cover again but Helmsley kicks out. And Mero begins to ram Helmsley a few times into the cage again. Mero then charges at Helmsley but Mero walks straight into a spinebuster by Helmsley. And Helmsley and Mero are both down. Helmsley then gets up and tries to crawl through the door but Mero grabs him and Mero picks up Helmsley and whips him into the ropes but Helmsley reverses it and Mero hits a big flying forearm taking Helmsley down. Mero then gets up and heads to the cage climbing on it but Helmsley grabs Mero by the foot and Mero is crouching on the top turnbuckle. Helmsley then gets on the top rope with Mero and hits a superplex off the top rope and both men are down. Helmsley goes for the cover again but Mero kicks out at 2. Helmsley then begins to grab Mero and it looks like he's setting up for the pedigree but Mero ducks and catapults Helmsley straight into the cage. Mero then goes to the top of the cage, he's scaling the cage. Mero then goes to the cage again and will he win the Intercontinental Title again?. Wait a minute, what is Mero doing?. Mero is untop of the cage. What is he doing, Mero looks like he might hit the Wild Thing off the cage. Mero then hits the Wild Thing off the top of the cage. Mero hit the Wild Thing and it looks like Mero is going to become the WWF Intercontinental Champion again. Mero and Helmsley are down here. Mero then gets up for a minute and then begins to climb to the cage. Helmsley is stirring to his feet and Helmsley is asking for the door to be open, but Mero is getting closer and closer. Finally the door opens and just as Mero makes 3 rungs to get out of the cage. Helmsley begins to sneak through the door and Helmsley has both feet touching the floor. Helmsley's escaped the cage and Mero's escaped the cage as well. But Helmsley used the door, so Helmsley has retained the Intercontinental Title in this steel cage match. Winner and Still WWF Intercontinental Champion: Hunter Hearst Helmsley
After The Match. Mero begins to get frustrated and just as Helmsley tries to escape. Mero begins to attack him and puts him back in the ring but here comes Bam Bam Bigelow, Skip, Brian Christopher and Goldust. And it's now five on one, it looks like we are seeing Survivor Series early. Mero is in the cage with these five guys and here comes Yokozuna, Fatu and Jake Roberts. Fatu, Yokozuna and Roberts try to make the save, but they are outnumbered, it is now five on four and look at this here comes Rocky Maivia, the new WWF Superstar. Rocky begins to climb to the cage door and look at this, Rocky is climbing the inside of the cage and he's untop of it. Rocky then flies off the top of the cage with a cross body on Bam Bam and Skip. What an unbelievable move in Rocky's first experience in the WWF Ring. Rocky put his own body on the line on his RAW Debut. Maivia begins to clean house with Mero's team and Helmsley's team begin to make a run for it. Maivia, Mero, Yokozuna, Fatu and Roberts all stand tall, but will they stand tall at Survivor Series?. McMahon and Kelly then sign us off saying that they will see everyone at New York City at Survivor Series.
- Camp Cornette retain their WWF Tag Team Championships with Owen and Bulldog retaining their titles against Yokozuna and Fatu mainly in part because of the WWF Champion Vader who basically beat the holy hell out of Yokozuna while the referee was distracted and Owen & Bulldog more or less took advantage with Fatu being isolated
- But yeah let's say Shawn Michaels his Survivor Series team of himself, Sid and The Legion of Doom wins at Survivor Series 1996 then what does that mean really in the grand scheme of things? Vader he has beaten Shawn Michaels not once but twice in big matches especially with that WWF Championship when it has been on the line hell the last time they were in the ring together Vader beat Shawn up so badly that the referee had to stop it because Shawn was so physically knocked out so what makes Shawn think that he has any chance not just at Survivor Series but in any match
- I wonder who the mysterious 5th partner will be for Team Ahmed as they go up against Faarooq's team of The Nation of Domination...whoever the 5th guy is it will probably be a surprise to us all
- Jake The Snake Roberts beating a jobber...well he needs as much momentum heading into Survivor Series considering he is on Mero's team
- Stone Cold Steve Austin is not happy at all and I don't blame him...Brian Pillman is a loose cannon who could have almost killed Stone Cold Steve Austin on live TV and Austin will he go through with his lawsuit and sue the WWF? Will he sue the Pillman family and the whole USA network? I mean if that happens Austin could take this whole company under
- Mankind beating a jobber well he didn't need Bearer or Papa Shango here in this match because he got the job done all by himself but at Survivor Series he has to face The Undertaker but not just in any match but a match where Paul Bearer will be suspended high above in a shark cage you can bet Paul Bearer is afraid of heights he will probably get vertigo just by being up there in the shark cage
- The Undertaker returning at Survivor Series 1996 after being buried alive makes sense...you want to save his return for a much bigger stage because if he were to show up on a RAW episode it just wouldn't have that same impact
- Bret Hart after he says when he is through with Austin he will set his sights back on the WWF Championship...well it makes sense but then again Vader is the WWF Champion and the last time he and Bret were in the ring together Bret came close to beating Vader but Vader still walked out champion
- In the main event Hunter Hearst Helmsley retains his WWF Intercontinental Championship against Marc Mero...well not due to controversy that's for sure because they both went out more or less at the same time but Helmsley's feet touched the ground first via escape but it was so close that you couldn't really call it. However, Hunter retains the title and honestly this match was so back and forth that realistically either man could have walked out champion. Helmsley retaining definitely was the right call. Post-match Survivor Series comes early as both teams brawl but then the newcomer The Rock Rocky Maivia shows up and he more or less makes his RAW debut by scaling the cage and hitting a Cross Body on to everyone. Rock cleans house in his debut and honestly what a way for The Rock to make his debut.

WWF SURVIVOR SERIES - November 17. 1996
Free For All: There was no free-for all matches, just interviews from Shawn Michaels's team and also the voice of The Undertaker telling his creatures tonight that there is going to be a new age of darkness and the Rebirth of The Undertaker saying that Mankind and Paul Bearer will both burn in hell followed by pyro hitting the ring with Todd Pettengill shocked.
Vince McMahon and Jim Ross are your hosts for Survivor Series. They talk about how this is the tenth annual Survivor Series, and Survivor Series is presented in Madison Square Garden for the first time. Vince talks about the match between Bret Hart and Stone Cold saying that he's rooting for Bret to win over Stone Cold. Vince then also announces the return of The Undertaker as well. But it's time for Survivor Series Action.
Match 1: Survivor Series Elimination Match Team Bradshaw (Bradshaw, Jerry Lawler, Papa Shango, Billy Gunn and Tiger Ali Singh w/Sunny, Bob Backlund and Iron Sheik vs Team Terry Funk (Terry Funk, Flash Funk, Crush, Bart Gunn and Mark Henry w/Flash's Funkettes) What a way to kick off with the Bad Blood still ensuing between Bradshaw and Terry Funk with both Bradshaw and Terry Funk starting the match off. Both these men begin the match by exchanging blows, both these guys used to be former partners as well, but this has been probably one of the best rivalries in 1996 between Terry Funk and Bradshaw. Funk whips Bradshaw into the ropes and hits a clothesline on Bradshaw. Funk then punches away at Bradshaw a few times and whips Bradshaw into the buckle but Bradshaw reverses it with a kick to the face and punches away at Funk. Bradshaw then whips Funk into the buckle into his corner and makes the tag to Papa Shango. Shango begins to attack Funk. And remember Shango used to be Kama. Shango whips Funk into the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Funk dropkicks the legs taking the big man down. Funk then makes the tag to Crush. And look at this. Crush is going right for Shango. Crush whips Shango into the ropes and hits a high back body drop. Crush goes for the cover but Shango kicks out at 2. Crush whips Shango into the buckle and throws hard punches at Shango. Crush runs off the ropes and hits a clothesline in the corner on Shango. Crush then makes the tag to Mark Henry, the big man. This is Henry's first Survivor Series Match and he might make the most of it here. Henry whips Shango into the buckle and hits an avalanche in the corner. Henry scoops up Shango and bodyslams him to the mat. Henry runs off the ropes and hits an elbow drop. Henry goes for the cover and Billy Gunn breaks up the 3 count.

Earlier Today, cameras caught up with Kevin Kelly and Rocky Maivia. Kelly asks Rocky how does it feel to make his debut in the World's Most Famous Arena. Rocky says that it's a big honor and priveldge to be working at Madison Square Garden in where his dad and his granddad wrestled in. He's had a lot of fun seeing his dad and granddad wrestle in the World Wrestling Federation and he hopes he makes them proud. Kelly says that Rocky's going to be in there with a lot of veterans like Jake Roberts, Yokozuna, and not only that people like Goldust and Hunter Hearst Helmsley and all the others, is he nervous going into tonight?. Rocky says that he's not nervous, he has full confidence in himself, he just hopes that tonight he will be the Last Man Standing in that ring. Kelly says that after tonight is over, what does the future hold for Rocky Maivia, Rocky says give it a few years or months, he will be looking for WWF Gold here in the near future, because that's what everybody says when they make their debut, they want the WWF Championship. Rocky says that in a few years and months, Rocky Maivia will one day become the best superstar of all time and that starts at Survivor Series.
A video clip is shown of The Undertaker vs Mankind, it all started with Mankind making his debut the night after WrestleMania to attack The Undertaker and not only that delivering three wins over The Undertaker at Summerslam, King of The Ring and recently Buried Alive when Mankind enlisted the help of a lot of WWF Superstars to eliminate The Undertaker and even Papa Shango, but The Undertaker's gloved hand bursted up from the grave declaring that he wouldn't rest in peace. But tonight, The Undertaker and Mankind will go one on one again, with Paul Bearer in a shark cage, and if Undertaker wins, he gets 5:00 minutes with Paul Bearer, no one is allowed to help Paul Bearer if The Undertaker wins, but if they do. They will be suspended.
Kevin Kelly interviews Mankind and Paul Bearer with Bearer protesting that he ain't going to be in the cage, he has confidence in his Mankind, he says that he doesn't want to be in the ring with The Undertaker because he's Paul Bearer and you're not. Mankind tells Uncle Paul to calm down and tells him to think back Buried Alive, he buried The Undertaker alive for good, and now The Undertaker is coming back for revenge. Well it ain't going to happen, because Mankind is finally home, he's finally at the bowels of New York City, Madison Square Garden in where he hitchhiked to watch Jimmy Snuka fly off the cage onto Don Muraco, and he kids himself not. He will put his own body on the line to beat The Undertaker and The Undertaker's spirit will be his and all his, so that he can never come back alive, and he and Paul Bearer can bury The Undertaker alive for good.
Mankind and Paul Bearer both make their way to the ring as the shark cage is in the ring. Bearer has a look of frightness and he begins to get scared, both Mankind and Bearer are in the ring as Bearer continues to argue with the referee as he tries to plead his case. He then tries to go to the outside of the ring but the referee stops him from doing so, then all of a sudden. The Lights go out as Undertaker's music plays in the arena, the fans at Madison Square Garden cannot wait to see The Undertaker, and look at this. The Undertaker is beginning to descend from above, and it looks like he has Batman Black Wings and look at his attire, it is all black. The Undertaker is back and he's ready to finally get a victory over Mankind. Undertaker then steps out of the wings and walks down to the ring where he brings the lights up in the arena. Taker gets in the ring and begins to stare down Paul Bearer, and it looks like Undertaker wants to get his hands on Paul Bearer already. Mankind then saves Paul Bearer and attacks Undertaker as the cage begins to go up and look at Paul Bearer, he's scared.
Match 2: Mankind w/Paul Bearer vs The Undertaker The fight spills to the outside with Undertaker and Mankind exchanging blows, I don't think the referee will be able to handle these two, he just might let it go at New York City, the commentators then say that the referee told Jesse Ventura that he was just going to let these two fight just like King of The Ring. Taker then takes Mankind in the ring and begins to attack Mankind and grabs Mankind's arm and lifts him up and throws him down to the mat and Taker grabs the arm again and goes for an armbar submission hold, look at The Undertaker. We are seeing nothing but new moves from The Undertaker. Undertaker is trying to get rid of that Mandible Claw Hold because Taker has been in that hold many times. The Phenom throws Mankind into the buckle and hits hard body shots on Mankind. Taker then whips Mankind into the buckle and hits a high back body drop. Undertaker runs off the ropes and goes for an elbow drop but Mankind rolls out of the way. Mankind runs off the ropes and clotheslines Undertaker and himself over the top rope to the floor. And look at this both these men are fighting outside again. Mankind grabs a chair and tries to hit Undertaker in the face with it but Undertaker boots the chair right in Mankind's head. Taker grabs Mankind and tosses him back in the ring. Undertaker then grabs the chair and puts it on Mankind's head and look at this. Undertaker gets untop of the apron and drops the leg right onto Mankind's head and that may have damaged Mankind's skull right there. Taker gets back to the ring and heads to the top rope and Mankind is back to his feet and Undertaker hits a unbelievable leaping clothesline onto Mankind. Undertaker goes for the cover but Mankind kicks out at 2. Taker and Mankind continue to switch the momentum to each other. Mankind is able to fight back eventually by nailing the piledriver on The Undertaker but only gets the 2 count. Mankind then punches away at Undertaker and whips him into the ropes but Undertaker misses a clothesline by Mankind and Taker hits a jumping DDT on Mankind. Undertaker grabs Mankind and it looks like it could be ropewalk time and look at this Mankind is grabbing the ropes and Mankind crotches The Undertaker and The Undertaker had his chance to do his signature ropewalk but Mankind stopped it and Mankind throws a punch and knocks Undertaker out of the ring. Both these men are going hard at it here, they are pulling out all the stops. Mankind kicks Undertaker in the gut and hits a neckbreaker onto concrete on the outside. Mankind tosses Undertaker back in the ring and Mankind hammers away at Undertaker and whips him into the buckle but Undertaker comes back with a clothesline and Taker goes for the arm again and goes for an armbar submission like move, can Mankind tap here. Mankind eventually gets his foot on the ropes and the hold must be broken. Undertaker grabs Mankind and whips him into the buckle and goes for a move but Mankind elbows him to the face and knocks Undertaker out of the ring. Mankind then gets on the apron and hits an amazing diving somersault on The Undertaker and both these men are pulling out all the stops here. Mankind tosses Undertaker back in the ring and Mankind grabs Undertaker and punches away at him on the buckle but Undertaker grabs Mankind by the throat and punches him many times. Taker runs off the ropes and hits a clothesline knocking Mankind down. Undertaker whips Mankind into the buckle and hits a running clothesline in the corner followed up by Snake Eyes. Taker whips Mankind into the ropes and nails a big boot followed up by a Leg Drop. Taker then grabs Mankind by the throat and goes for the chokeslam but Mankind counters it into a Mandible Claw, he's got the Claw locked in. Undertaker was working on that arm but it seems like that Mandible Claw still has effect. Taker tries to grab Mankind again and Undertaker is now down to the mat. Undertaker is darn near out of it. The ref raises Undertaker's hand one time, he raises Taker's hand twice. But Undertaker begins to get up and he's got Mankind by the throat. Taker eventually breaks free of the Mandible Claw and Undertaker hits the chokeslam but Undertaker's down also. Both men get up for a few minutes. Mankind gets up and so does Undertaker, Mankind and Taker exchange blows with one another. Taker whips Mankind into the ropes and look at this, Undertaker scoops Mankind up and he's going for the tombstone. But Mankind counters and hits Undertaker with the Double Arm DDT. And both Mankind and Undertaker are down again, but look at this Mankind is the first one to his feet. And what is Mankind doing?. Mankind's going to the top rope, ohhh no is Mankind going to attempt to do a Superfly Splash on The Undertaker?. This is like 1983 revisited all over again when Jimmy Snuka flew untop of the cage to Don Muraco. Is Mankind going to do this. Mankind then goes for the splash but Undertaker suddenly rolls out of the way and Undertaker gets back to his feet and so does Mankind. Taker scoops Mankind up and tombstones him to the canvas. Taker crosses the arms. 1. 2. 3. And The Undertaker has finally defeated Mankind. Winner: The Undertaker
And you know what that means The Undertaker is going to have 5 minutes of fun with Paul Bearer. The cage is lowered down and Bearer seems upset now that The Undertaker is going to get his hands on him. The referee begins to open up the cage and look at The Undertaker, he begins to grab Bearer and it's time that Paul Bearer finally pays for his crimes. Bearer gets out of the ring and tries to go backstage, but someone grabs Bearer and look at this, it's the Grim Reapers. They carry Paul Bearer up to the ring and Bearer is begging for his life. The Urn is still in the ring. Taker has the urn and Bearer is back in the ring and Undertaker has the urn and he clocks Bearer in the skull with it, revenge for what Paul Beaerr did at Summerslam when he betrayed The Undertaker. Taker then mounts Bearer and punches away at him and look at this Paul Bearer has been busted open from that Urn Shot. There is no one that can come save Paul Bearer, he's gotta go it alone. Taker grabs Bearer and hits a right hand knocking Bearer down again. Bearer tries to beg off but Undertaker's not having any of that. Taker then gets Bearer up and hits a big boot to the face. Undertaker is just unmercifully hurting Paul Bearer here. Taker then grabs Paul Bearer and lifts him up for the Tombstone Piledriver. And Undertaker hits him with the Tombstone. Paul Bearer has been tombstoned to hell by The Undertaker. Undertaker drags Bearer's lifeless body and the druids are still there and the druids begin to lift Bearer's lifeless body out of Madison Square Garden and probably out of the WWF for good, The Undertaker has finally got his hands on Paul Bearer after the betrayal. But the feud between Undertaker and Mankind is still way far from over. We've seen a much more aggressive Undertaker than we have ever seen. Undertaker then does his kneel pose to the people at Madison Square Garden. You can bet The Undertaker might have Mankind and Papa Shango on his mind after he just put a beatdown on Paul Bearer.

Michaels would get another shot at the WWF Championship, but if Shawn's team lost. Michaels would never challenge for the WWF Title as long as Vader is the champion. Shawn and Vader both never found any trouble finding their partners as Vader has Owen Hart, British Bulldog and Jim Cornette and Shawn Michaels has Sycho Sid and the Returning Legion of Doom.
Todd Pettengill interviews Shawn Michaels and his team. Pettengill says that tonight at Madison Square Garden is all or nothing for the Heartbreak Kid as he has assembled a team to defeat Vader's Team. Shawn speaks saying that ever since he lost the WWF Championship at Summerslam. He's been thinking about getting the title back in his possession. He wants to become World Wrestling Federation Champion, but if it means gambling his title shot against Vader then so be it. Because he's got the best team assembled in this ring, his good buddy Sycho Sid and the Road Warriors The Legion of Doom. Animal speaks and says that the reason they came back to the World Wrestling Federation is because they were tired of hearing Owen Hart and The British Bulldog complaining about them being the greatest tag team of all time, but The Legion of Doom are the best team in the WWF. They won the WWF Tag Team Titles in the same building at Sumemrslam 1991 and they are back at Madison Square Garden to help Shawn Michaels win. Hawk says that Owen and Bulldog think that they are cool, but the fact of the matter is, they are slime and Owen and Bulldog will be brought down by justice to the Legion of Doom. Ooooh What A Rush. Sid is the last to speak saying that he still has not forgotten about Vader. At Mind Games. Sid could've taken that title, but Vader got off that easy, but tonight when him and Vader are in that ring. Sid's not going to let Vader go away. Sid tells Shawn no disrespect to him because Sid is Shawn's friend, but tonight. He is going to make sure Vader will be the first man eliminated tonight. Shawn then speaks again saying that they are coming for Vader's team and when this night ends, he will get another WWF Title Shot.
Match 5: Survivor Series Elimination Match Shawn Michaels, Sycho Sid and The Legion of Doom vs Vader, Jim Cornette, Owen Hart and British Bulldog It is a must win situation for Shawn Michaels here tonight as him and his team take on Vader's team. The match starts off with Shawn and Owen and remember the history they had this past year, It was also one year ago that Owen Hart injured Shawn Michaels. Owen and Shawn lock up center in the ring with Owen delivering a side headlock only for Shawn to take him down with a shoulder block. Shawn runs off the ropes but Owen puts on the brakes and Owen runs off the ropes only for Shawn to leapfrog and hit an arm-drag takedown on Owen. Shawn then locks in an armwringer on Owen only for Owen to poke the eyes and Owen hammers away at Shawn and whips him into the ropes and goes for a back body drop but Shawn knees him in the face and Shawn goes for a clothesline but Owen tosses him over the top rope but Shawn hangs on to the ropes and skins the cat and nails Owen with a clothesline knocking him down. Shawn grabs Owen and throws him into the buckle chopping away at him. Shawn whips Owen into the buckle and hits a high back body drop and Shawn makes the tag to Hawk. Hawk comes in and stares down Owen. Owen then locks up with Hawk and look at Jim Cornette, he's on the outside when he should be on the apron with his teammates. Hawk shoves Owen to the mat when Owen attempted a lockup. Owen then makes the tag to Bulldog. Hawk and Bulldog stare each other down with Bulldog showing his muscles to Hawk. Hawk then takes offense to that and kicks Bulldog in the gut and whips him into the ropes and nails him with a clothesline. Hawk goes for the cover but Bulldog kicks out at 2. Hawk then makes the tag to Animal. Hawk and Animal whip Bulldog into the ropes and hit a double-team clothesline taking The Bulldog down. Animal runs off the ropes and hits a leg drop on Bulldog. Animal goes for the cover again but Bulldog kicks out again at 2. Bulldog eventually fights back and hits a bodyslam on Animal. Bulldog then makes the tag to Owen. Bulldog and Owen whip Animal into the ropes and hit a double clothesline. Owen and Bulldog do a good job of wearing down Animal for a bit, and we have yet to see Vader in this match as well. And speaking of Vader, here he comes. Vader hammers away at Animal and whips him into the ropes nailing him with a clothesline and look at Vader all over Animal. Vader is just beating Animal down in the corner. Vader attempts a splash in the corner but Animal ducks out of that and makes the tag to Sid. And here we go Sid and Vader. Two giants going at it here at Madison Square Garden. Sid whips Vader into the ropes and hits a big boot knocking the WWF Champion down. Sid then signals for the jackknife but here come Owen Hart and Bulldog. Hart and Bulldog whip Sid into the ropes only for Sid to nail them both with a double clothesline. Sid whips Bulldog into the ropes and htis a boot on him as well and does the same thing to Owen. Cornette somehow comes in and tries to hit Sid with an axe handle but Sid sees it coming and Sid grabs Cornette by the tie and knocks him down with a right hand. Sid's a one man wrecking crew. Vader then comes from behind and attacks Sid from behind. Vader whips Sid into the buckle and goes for a move in the corner only for Sid to meet him with a clothesline. Sid then picks up Vader and grabs him by the throat and it could be a chokeslam. Vader fights back and look at this Vader's got a choke of his own and Vader breaks Sid's chokeslam hold and hits a chokeslam on Sid of his own, what a tremendous chokeslam by Vader. Vader runs off the ropes and attempts a splash but Sid rolls out of the way and Sid has Vader by the throat and Sid look at the amazing strength chokeslams the 400-pounder Vader to the mat. Owen and Bulldog then come back in and attack Sid but here comes Shawn Michaels, Hawk and Animal and Cornette is still done. Shawn, Hawk and Animal continue to brawl with Owen and Bulldog while Vader's on the outside recovering. And wait a minute, Vader's got the WWF Title Belt. Vader's got the WWF Title Belt. Vader enters the ring and he enters it and whacks Sid in the face with it and that's a disqualifaction, Vader has been disqualified. Hawk charges at Vader only for Vader to hit him with the title as well. Vader then hits Animal with the title again and Shawn enters the ring and hammers away at Vader. Shawn tries to hit Vader with Sweet Chin Music but Vader catches him and nails him with a powerbomb. Finkel announces that the WWF Champion Vader has been eliminated by DQ. So Vader has been eliminated for using the WWF Championship Belt. Vader then walks away and it looks as if it's going to be a 4 on 3. Owen enters the ring and he is the legal man now. Owen then takes advantage of the weakened Sid. Owen whips Sid into the ropes and hits a spinning heel kick taking Sid down. Owen and Bulldog make frequent tags and continue to wear down Sid a whole lot until Sid fights back by hitting a double clothesline. And Sid makes the hot tag to Hawk. Hawk enters the ring and goes to work on both Owen and Bulldog. Hawk whips Owen into the ropes and nails a high back body drop and does the same thing to Bulldog. Hawk then gives Cornette a shot on the apron. Hawk then lifts Owen up and Animal is on the top turnbuckle and there's the Doomsday Device on Owen. But the referee is distracted by Jim Cornette and here comes Bulldog. Bulldog grabs Hawk and hits him with the running powerslam and Owen gets up and sees Hawk down and Owen heads to the top rope and hits an elbow off the top onto Hawk to get the elimination, it's now 3 on 3. Animal enters the ring and begins to take it to Owen and Bulldog. Animal is upset that Hawk's been eliminated, Animal holds his own with Bulldog and Owen for 2 minutes. Owen then surprises Animal with the enziguri and that allows Bulldog to nail Animal with the Running Powerslam and Bulldog is the next to eliminate Animal so The Legion of Doom are history and things do not look good for Shawn Michaels and Sycho Sid. Shawn enters the ring and goes at it with The Bulldog. Bulldog and Shawn have a great exchange with Bulldog gaining the momentum on Shawn, Cornette still hasn't been tagged in at all giving Bulldog and Owen momentum. Shawn eventually makes the tag to Sid after hitting Bulldog with the flying forearm. Sid comes in and goes to work on Owen and Bulldog. Sid grabs Owen and military press slams him to the mat and gives Bulldog a boot to the face. Sid is a one man wrecking crew again. Sid picks up Bulldog and goes for the chokeslam but here comes Owen. Owen goes for a double axe handle but Sid has him by the throat as well, Sid has both Bulldog and Owen by the throat and it looks like we could be seeing a double chokeslam but here comes Cornette. He's got the tennis racket and Sid lets Owen and Bulldog go cause he saw Cornette with the tennis racket and Sid kicks Cornette and Sid's got the tennis racket and he levels Owen and Bulldog with it and now Sid's been DQ'ed. First it was Vader and now it's Sycho Sid, it looks as if the tables are turned here. And now Sid is on the rampage. Even Shawn can't believe that Sid got himself disqualified so Shawn tries to calm Sid down and then Shawn and Sid get into it with Shawn pushing Sid and Sid coming back to push Shawn and Sid eventually leaves the ring, but more importantly he may have cost Shawn another chance at a WWF Title Match. Shawn is now by himself, it is now three on one and things do not I repeat, they do not look good for Shawn Michaels. Sid walks away and just as Shawn looks at Sid. Owen comes from behind to attack Shawn. Shawn's gotta fight for his life here. Owen does a pretty good job of wearing down Shawn for a few minutes and just as Owen whips him into the buckle to charge at him. Shawn knees him in the face and heads to the top rope and hits a picture-perfect moonsault on the Rocket. Shawn covers Owen and Owen's eliminated from that moonsault and it is now two on one. Bulldog begins to go to work on Shawn and just beats Shawn on the outside and takes him back to the inside so Bulldog can continue the work on Shawn. Shawn fights back and hits Bulldog with a flying forearm followed by a nipup. Shawn picks up Bulldog and nails him with an atomic drop followed by a clothesline. Shawn scoops Bulldog up and slams him to the mat and Shawn might be dropping that big elbow drop he's most famous to do and Shawn connects with it right into the chest on the UK Native and Shawn could be calling for Sweet Chin Music. Shawn goes for it but Bulldog drops him with a clothesline and that was perhaps Shawn's last chance. Bulldog then grabs Shawn and goes for the running powerslam but Shawn fights out of it and nails The Bulldog with Sweet Chin Music. Michaels covers Bulldog and eliminates him, and look at the look on Cornette's face. Cornette is in trouble. Shawn stares down Cornette and points at him saying "It's you and me". Cornette then looks to escape and Shawn runs after him. Cornette gets in the ring and just as Shawn gets in the ring. Cornette has the referee distracted again and here come Owen and Bulldog. Owen and Bulldog attack Shawn on the outside, but Cornette's got the referee distracted and Owen and Bulldog toss Shawn back in the ring and Cornette is confident in himself. Cornette then begins to stomp away at Shawn and Cornette just punches away at Shawn screaming at him. Cornette then picks Shawn up and tries to punch him but Shawn blocks it and punches Cornette and Cornette falls down to the ground. Shawn begins to beat on Cornette for a good portion of three minutes until he finally puts Cornette down with some Sweet Chin Music and that is enough to give Shawn Michaels his title match. Michaels pins Cornette to get the last elimination of this match. And Shawn Michaels will now receive his title match in the near future. What an outstanding comeback by The Heartbreak Kid. And you can bet HBK will name the time and the place in where he will receive his title shot soon. It might not be tonight, he could make his announcement tomorrow night on RAW. Who Knows. Winner: Shawn Michaels's Team and Sole Survivor: Shawn Michaels
A video clip is shown for the 1997 Royal Rumble in where it will be held at the Alamodome in Shawn Michaels's hometown San Antonio. TX on January 19, 1997.
The Commentators talk about the big match between Bret Hart and Stone Cold Steve Austin happening as they show a video clip of these two, it kicks off with Clips of Bret Hart fighting in the ring and applying his sharpshooter on various opponents, followed up with clips of Stone Cold Steve Austin dominating the WWF in the past year and conquering the 1996 King of The Ring followed by injuring Brian Pillman. But tonight who's house will it be in the World's Most Famous Arena?.
Todd Pettengill interviews Stone Cold Steve Austin saying that the winner of this match will face Vader at the Next In Your House. Austin tells Pettengill that he thinks that he's supposed to be intimidated by the way they're building Bret Hart up. Everybody talks about how he's the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. The real best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be will be Stone Cold Steve Austin, cliches are cliches and an ass kicking is an ass kicking and that's what Bret's going to experience, When Austin won the King of The Ring in 1996, he told everyone that his time has come and when he beats Bret Hart and goes on to In Your House, he will cash that shot and become the next WWF Champion and he will lead 1997 in the WWF as the WWF Champion, 1997 will be Austin 3:16 and That's the bottom line cause Stone Cold Said So.
Stone Cold's music plays in the arena as he comes out to a mixed reaction, some fans are cheering and some fans are booing. The fans seem to have grown very fond of Stone Cold of his attitude, but tonight this is going to be a big match, one for the ages. Who would ever thought we could see this match happening?. It's the 1996 King of The Ring winner Stone Cold Steve Austin vs the 1994 King of The Ring winner Bret Hart.
Todd Pettengill interviews Bret Hart saying that one of the biggest comebacks will happen at Madison Square Garden. Bret says that the one thing Stone Cold does not have going for him in this match is the fact that it is Madison Square Garden cause Bret's been in MSG before winning the Intercontinental Title at Summerslam 1991 and facing his stinky, rotten brother Owen at WrestleMania 10. He's had very big moments in this building and tonight it's going to be one of them. He's not running out of excuses. Bret says that he meant that Madison Square Garden is not a church, but it is holyground, he's got his fans and family out here and all around the world, and they have been waiting for this very moment, where he stands. They all will find out now, but remember one thing, he's not greedy for money, but respect. But when it's all said and done. Stone Cold will not only find out who the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be. But Stone Cold will respect Bret Hart.
Bret Hart's music then plays to a rousing ovation as the fans await the arrival for The Hitman, he hasn't wrestled in 8 months since that unforgettable Championship Match he had against Shawn Michaels. Bret makes his way to the ring to a big ovation. Will Bret culminate his big comeback with a win?. Or could this very well be his last match?. Bret said on RAW, Win or Lose. He's going to keep fighting. But the question is, does Bret still have any left of ring rust in him.
Match 6: Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Bret Hart Here's the moment everyone's been waiting for here at Madison Square Garden. And don't forget the winner of this match will face Vader at In Your House in December in Miami for the WWF Championship. Austin and Bret go face to face but Austin gets out of Bret's face by flipping him off. Austin and Bret lock up in the center of the ring and Austin throws Bret into the buckle but the referee restrains Austin and Austin begins to talk trash to Bret only for Bret to shove him back down to the mat, this time it's Bret getting the momentum with a waistlock on Austin. Bret and Austin then lock up once again and Bret counters Austin's waistlock. And Austin goes for the arm of Bret and takes him down. Austin locks in an armwringer but Bret counters into an armwringer of his own and Bret continues to go for the arm of The Rattlesnake. Austin fights back and continues to go for the wristlock but Bret snapmares him and goes for the arm again and Bret drives a knee into Austin's back and does it again. Austin then drives Hart into the ropes and Austin hits a nice drop toe hold but Bret counters it and gets into a hammerlock on Austin. Austin whips Bret into the ropes and hits a back elbow. Austin continues to hammer away at Bret and takes him into the buckle punching away at Bret and Bret blocks another punch from Austin and hits a right hand of his own and Bret punches away at Austin and clotheslines Austin over the top rope to the floor. Austin then backs out and goes straight to the outside. Austin then gets back in the ring and locks up with Bret again but Bret takes him down with an armdrag and goes for the arm of Stone Cold. Austin then rakes the eye of Bret and punches away at Bret and whips him into the ropes and goes for a back body drop but Bret kicks him in the face and rolls up Austin for a cover but Austin kicks out. Austin kicks Bret in the gut and whips him into the ropes and Bret hits a shoulder block and runs off the ropes and Austin goes for a clothesline. Bret tries for a move but Austin catches him and stunguns him into the ropes. And it looks like Stone Cold has gotten the momentum in his favor. Bret gets stunned and Austin nails him with a clothesline. Austin goes for the cover but Bret kicks out at 2. Austin then drags Bret into the buckle and punches away at him. Austin then exchanges the punches into chops and Bret is down and Austin begins to choke away at Bret. Austin gets out of the ring and drives a forearm right into Bret's throat. And this match has been all Austin thus far. It looks like Austin is set to end Bret's comeback. Austin waits for Bret to return to the ring. Austin grabs Bret by the hair and snapmares Bret back in the ring. Austin then grabs Bret and whips him into the buckle and Bret kicks him in the face and here comes Bret battling back with punches on Austin. Bret whips Austin into the ropes and goes for a backbody drop but Austin puts his head down and hits a neckbreaker on Bret. Austin goes for the cover again but the 3-time former WWF Champion is able to kick out. Austin then grabs Bret and applies a sleeper. Austin keeps that hold applied for 2 minutes until Bret lets go and look at this Austin and Bret exchange blows with one another but Austin wins the fight and begins to drive Bret into the buckle but Bret reverses it and hits a clothesline knocking Austin down. Bret picks up Austin and nails an atomic drop followed by another clothesline. Bret is now back on the offense. Bret punches Austin in the gut and hits a side russian leg sweep. Bret goes for the cover again but Austin kicks out at 2. Bret then grabs Austin and whips him into the ropes but Austin reverses it and surprises Bret with a Lou Thesz Press. Austin then hits a diving elbow and Austin goes for the cover but Bret kicks out at 2. Austin then grabs Bret and places him on the top turnbuckle and it looks like Austin could be using a superplex here. Austin then grabs Bret in a superplex position but Bret throws him down and Austin gets up only for Bret to knock him down with a flying clothesline. Bret goes for the cover again but Austin kicks out. And what a back and forth matchup this has been. Bret grabs Austin and whips him into the ropes but Austin reverses it and Bret comes charging at Austin only for Austin to throw him over the top rope to the floor. Austin demands the ref to count. Austin heads to the apron and hits a double axe handle on Bret Hart and Austin grabs Bret and rams his lower back into the ringpost. Austin is just punishing The Hitman here, total anhilation by The Rattlesnake. Austin tries another move on Bret but Bret surprises him and backdrops Austin into the security railing and Austin is stuck in the Barricade and Bret is able to fight back here and Bret takes Austin's face into another barricade and Bret tosses Austin back in the ring and Austin continues to go outside of the ring and Bret hammers away at Austin on the outside and Bret attempts a piledriver but Austin backdrops Bret into the spanish announce table but the table did not break. And Austin goes to work on Bret on the table and punches away at him. And this is an all-out battle between Austin and Bret. Austin grabs Bret again and bodyslams him into the spanish announce table and Austin gets to the apron again and hits another elbow on Bret and it looks like this match may be over here. Bret's comeback may be ruined here. Bret somehow gets to his feet and makes it back to the ring and Austin grabs Bret by the hair and suplexes him back in the ring and Austin heads to the top rope and hits a diving elbow off the top but Bret kicks out. Austin continues to wear down Bret here but every time Austin tries to put Bret away. Bret continues to kick out. Bret somehow makes a comeback and kicks Austin in the gut and hits a DDT on the Rattlesnake. Bret and Austin are both down and both men get to their feet. Bret tries to take a breather on the ropes but Austin runs off the ropes and hits a knee to the neck and goes for the cover again but Bret kicks out at 2. Austin then goes for the abdominal stretch and he's using leverage on the top rope and the referee sees it and threatens to disqualify Austin and Austin reluctanly obliges but not before shoving and flipping The Referee the bird. Austin does not want to get disqualified here. Austin and Bret begin to exchange blows again and this is a fist fight here in New York City. Bret finally gains the momentum and knocks Austin down with a right hand and now it's Austin being stunned. Bret whips Austin into the ropes and nails a back body drop on Austin. Bret then picks up Austin and hits another atomic drop and Bret runs off the ropes and nails another clothesline. Bret then picks up Austin and nails him with the piledriver and Bret covers Austin but Austin kicks out again. Bret and Austin are putting one hell of a show here in New York City. Bret grabs Austin and nails him with a backbreaker and now Bret is going to the top rope but Austin gets up and surprises him, something's gotta give between these two. Austin heads to the top rope. Austin attempted a superplex earlier, he just might do it again. And Austin connects with the superplex and both men are down. Austin covers Bret but Bret kicks out at 2. Bret and Austin get back to their feet but Austin kicks Bret in the gut and surprises him with the Stone Cold Stunner. Austin hit the Stunner, 1. 2. And Bret kicks out of it, my god, Bret has kicked out of it!. Nobody's ever kicked out of the Stone Cold Stunner. Austin gets upset and frustrated and grabs Bret by the legs and it looks like he's going to use the Sharpshooter on Bret, but instead he uses the Texas Cloverleaf and just a minute later, Bret makes it to the ropes and the hold must be officially broken. Austin and Bret, they have destroyed each other and they are exchanging blows again. Bret knocks Austin over the top rope with another clothesline and Bret runs off the ropes and hits an amazing suicide dive on Austin.

Bret's got the hold applied on Austin. What will Austin do. Austin eventually makes it to the ropes for a minute and the hold must be broken. Both men have used their finishing moves on one another, but neither one has gotten the victory with them, this is still anybody's match. Austin gets up and surprises Bret with the Million Dollar Dream. But wait a minute Bret uses the turnbuckle for leverage and rolls over Austin and look at this. Austin's still got the submission hold but the referee is counting 3. Bret pinned Austin's shoulders to the mat and Bret Hart is the winner of this match!. Bret Hart Wins!. Bret Wins the Match!. Winner: Bret Hart
What a return for The Hitman, and what a physical match this has been between Bret Hart and Stone Cold Steve Austin, this was pretty much physical, but Bret Hart has won this match and will face Vader at In Your House for the WWF Championship. Austin gets out of the ring and looks to attack Bret but thinks about it, instead he flips Bret the bird and Bret does the same in retallation flipping Austin off. But take nothing away from these two, this was an outstanding intense match. But the war between Bret and Stone Cold is not yet far from over, Bret said that he was back and now his next mission of his comeback is to become the World Wrestling Federation Champion again and it just might happen. Bret may have an early Christmas Present come December 15, 1996 that is if he stops the reign again of Vader. He stopped the reign of Vader at the Royal Rumble but can he do it again is the question?. Bret's had great Madison Square Garden Moments, but this one had to be his best moment in Survivor Series History. Bret then celebrates with the Crowd as the commentators thank us for an amazing Survivor Series at Madison Square Garden, The Hitman has returned in glorious fashion. Bret continues to shake hands with the fans as Survivor Series goes off the air.
- Bret Hart may have beat Stone Cold Steve Austin here but as far as being WWF Champion again by beating Vader it is not going to happen...Vader has been on another level ever since becoming WWF Champion back at SummerSlam 1996 and Vader has proven himself to be a violent vicious remorseless Beast in that ring...did you see what he did to Michaels the last time they were ever in a ring together? Beat him into submission so much that he was knocked out and what makes Bret think he stands any chance?
- Team Michaels beating Team Vader...well how many more title matches is Shawn gonna get? I am so sick and tired of seeing him in the title picture

WCW WORLD WAR 3 - November 24. 1996 - Norfolk, VA
Before the Intro of World War 3 begins, a clip is shown of what happened on WCW Nitro in where Eric Bischoff turned his back on WCW to become the mastermind of the NWO, The Commentators who are Tony Schiavone, Dusty Rhodes and Bobby Heenan announce that on Nitro tomorrow night, Eric Bischoff will be here to address his actions. Heenan tells us that he never thought he would see it happen but it did.
Match 1: WCW Cruiserweight Championship Triple Threat Match Dean Malenko vs Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero And we kick off the show with a Triple Threat Match between the three Cruiserweights, Dean Malenko, Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero. Eddie and Rey begin to form an alliance at the start to go after Dean. Eddie and Rey both toss Dean over the top rope and they go at it with one another. Eddie whips Rey into the ropes but Rey holds on to the ropes so he can hit a somersault dive on Malenko. Eddie goes to the top rope and hits a cross body on the outside knocking Rey and Malenko down. Eddie tosses Rey in the ring and whips him into the ropes and hits a backbreaker. Eddie goes for the cover but Rey kicks out. Eddie and Rey continue to fight for a good two minutes until Malenko comes in and hits a cross body taking down Eddie. Malenko goes for the cover but Eddie kicks out at 2. Mysterio gets in and hits a seated senton knocking Malenko down and Mysterio tosses Eddie over the top rope and Mysterio charges at Malenko but Malenko hits a nice spinning heel kick taking Mysterio down. Remember not only one of these three men can win the WCW Cruiserweight Title tonight, but one could spam the winner of the World War III Battle Royal and could wind up facing the WCW Champion Hollywood Hogan at a Later Date. Mysterio fights back against Malenko but Eddie gets up and hits a hurracarana knocking Mysterio to the outside. Malenko gets up and then kicks Eddie in the gut nailing a gutwrench suplex. Malenko goes for the cover but Mysterio breaks up the count. Mysterio then grabs Malenko and whips him into the ropes but Malenko reverses it and dropkicks Mysterio to the mat. The match goes on for a great five minutes with still incredible action. Malenko almost gets the win by dropping Eddie on his head hitting a German Suplex but Eddie kicks out at 2. Eddie and Rey then team up against Dean. Eddie picks up Dean and bodyslams him to the mat. Eddie and Rey then whip Malenko into the ropes and hit a high back body drop. But then Eddie turns on Rey and nails him with a shot to the back. Eddie whips Rey into the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Rey dropkicks the leg of Eddie and Eddie gets caught in the ropes and Rey runs off the ropes and does a modified dropkick to the head of Eddie knocking Eddie down. Rey then gets on the apron but Malenko gives him a forearm shot to the back and this match still continues to go on for a good portion of five minutes. Rey then hits a springboard leg drop on Eddie and tries to go for the cover but Malenko makes sure the three didn't go down. Malenko picks up Rey and hits the brainbuster on Rey and Malenko grabs the legs of Rey and goes for the cloverleaf and can Rey hold on here?. Malenko still has that hold synched in and here comes Eddie. Eddie surprises Malenko with a bulldog breaking the hold. Eddie then kicks Malenko in the gut and hits what he calls the Three Suplex Amigos. Eddie heads to the top rope and hits the frog splash on Malenko, and that should be it. Eddie hooks the leg, here's the cover. 1. 2. 3. And we have a new WCW Cruiserweight Champion. Eddie Guerrero has captured the WCW Cruiserweight Title. What a victory for Eddie Guerrero capturing his first title in WCW. But Eddie could have another big night if he wins the 60-Man Battle Royal. Winner and New WCW Cruiserweight Champion: Eddie Guerrero
Mean "Gene" Okerlund is at the outside of the arena waiting the arrival of Rowdy "Roddy Piper", we know Hollywood Hogan and the NWO are here. But Roddy Piper has been spotted in Norfolk, but there has been no sign of him, then suddenly a limousine pulls up in the arena and it's Roddy Piper, He is here tonight and he's got a contract in hand. Okerlund asks Piper for his time. Okerlund tells Piper that he revealed Eric Bischoff as the mastermind last week on WCW Nitro and now Piper is here tonight to look for redemption. Piper says that first things first, yes he did reveal Eric Bischoff as the man behind the NWO. Because ever since Hogan, Hall, Nash and the whole rest of the NWO all ran roughshot on WCW. Well it was time for Roddy Piper to have a chance to end the NWO Group. Piper says that when he dropped that bombshell, Bischoff, he was wetting his pants.

He won the WCW World Heavyweight Title, he's held the belt for 8 months. And ever since this NWO crap started, it was under his head and that's how he lost his edge and not only that, he lost a great friend in all of this, Sting. Luger says that he knows Sting has been hiding in the rafters for far too long, but WCW and himself included needs to know where Sting stands. But as far as The Giant goes, he was a traitor to the NWO all this time because Hollywood Hogan gave him all these deals, but tonight he's going to make sure The Giant falls, and after he wins the Television Title. He is going to win the Battle Royal and eliminate the rest of the entire NWO and get back his WCW Championship.

A clip is shown of the situation between Hollywood Hogan and Roddy Piper, the whole thing escalated at Halloween Havoc in where Piper made his WCW Debut to challenge Hollywood Hogan, and also Piper revealing Eric Bischoff to be the mastermind of the New World Order leading to an NWO attack on Piper but Piper was able to thwart that.
Roddy Piper makes his way to the ring with contract in hand and what a big moment this is to see the legendary Rowdy Roddy Piper. Piper grabs the microphone and says that there isn't any sense in waiting, he's waited far too long for this, he's got the contract and he demands that Hollywood Hogan get out here. Then the NWO Music plays in the arena and suddenly Eric Bischoff, Ted Dibiase and Vincent all come out together. The fans are definitely screaming "Bischoff Sucks". It was proven that Bischoff was behind the New World Order, but where is Hogan?. Bischoff has a microphone and tells Piper that Hollywood is a little busy and he's got a couple of scripts and he's back taking a look at them, but however earlier today. He gave him his power of attorney, a business thing. an NWO Thing. Bischoff says that he's happy to take a look at whatever contract Piper has and by the power vested in Bischoff, he would be happy to sign it for Mr. Hogan. Piper cuts him off and Tells Vincent when he was in the WWF as Virgil. He taught him to how to fight. Piper tells Vincent to get out of his way, and second of all. He calls Bischoff a peon and a benedict arnold. Piper tells Bischoff that he's one of the new kids on the block, lost from the block because he's old because he absolutely has power from Hogan. Piper then tells Vincent he taught him to fight and then tells Bischoff that he ain't finished. He then says that he's been doing this gig for 28 years and not once, has he head his hair ripped or his nails done or his testicles chopped off. Piper says that if Bischoff wants to take over WCW and the NWO. He could care less, but if he thinks for one minute that he's going to trust Benedict Arnold, he's wrong. Piper says that he's tough enough. Bischoff then begs off as Piper gets in his face and Bischoff tells him that he could fine Piper. Piper responds how much would his fine be if he knocked Bischoff out. He doesn't care about the money and this is going nowhere and if it's the way that it's going to be. Bischoff then has the pen and Bischoff goes to sign the contract but Piper tells Bischoff to get his hands off the contract and says that he will fight Hogan in Nashville and if the rest of the NWO comes out, he couldn't care less. He doesn't care if he gets knocked out and the referee catches these kids. The fight is going to go on, there will be No Disqualifactions and No Countouts, and there is going to be a winner. He's here for the fight of the century and if Piper takes the fight and Bischoff has Hogan in here. The fight will end on December 29, 1996. Piper then begs Hogan to come out, then the NWO Music plays again as Bischoff continues to scream at Piper and suddenly Hogan comes out with Miss Elizabeth, The Giant, Syxx. Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, The NWO Sting and Scott Norton. Piper is outnumbered here. Hogan tells Piper that Piper has a problem now. Piper tells Hogan that he admits that, but it never stops him, Piper suggests that Hogan gets in the ring and get to signing the contract. The NWO then get in the ring and look at this Piper is in dangerous territory. Hogan tells Piper that he's going to sign it but like he says he's got a real big problem, Hogan says that he's used to dealing with individals, he dealt with Randy Savage and Sting and their ass is out of WCW. He's used to dealing with the #1 Contenders, he is used to dealing with people that are up to his speed. Hogan says that he will sign his contract, but when Piper was Hogan's equal years ago. He couldn't get it done. Piper couldn't beat Hogan on his best day not even at WrestleMania 1. Not even at the War to Settle The Score. Hogan says that since he's self righteous. Mr. Big Shot who will straighten out the world. Hogan tells Piper to show the hip. And they want the whole world to see it. Piper reveals his hip to reveal his tights. Hogan tells Piper that he's going to show the whole world what he's been talking about. Hogan then grabs the kilt and shows the fans Piper's hip. Hogan says that he doesn't usually pick on cripples, nor handicaps. But since the whole world seems to like Piper. The whole world wants to see the War that Didn't end the score. It will be a pleasure to sign the contract. Hogan signs the contract and says that he can't wait to beat Piper's ass at Starrcade, No Disqualifaction, No Countouts. And Piper will always be Hollywood Hogan's Bitch. Piper then slaps Hogan and begins to tackle him down, but suddenly the Rest of the NWO swarm over Piper and Hogan hammers away at Piper and Hogan slaps him in the face but Piper breaks free and begins to choke Hogan ripping his shirt off, but the NWO continue to fight him off and look at this. Hall's got the Abdominal Stretch on Piper, Hall grabs the kilt and there we see the scar. Hogan picks up the chair and Hogan nails Piper with the chair to the hip. Hogan then grabs the spraypaint and spraypaints NWO on Piper's hip. Hogan then picks up the microphone and tells Piper that at Starrcade, he is going to break him in half and Piper will be retired for good. Hogan then spits in Piper's face as Bischoff begins to smile. Then Piper gets to his feet and overturns the table and Piper takes off his jacket and look at this he's ready to fight some more. But Piper is in no shape to fight. Piper still has the microphone and says that at Nashville on December 29, 1996. If that's the best Hogan can do. There will be no retreat and no surrender. And He won't be down as Hollywood Hogan's bitch, the only thing Hogan will be is Piper's bitch. Look at Piper, despite his attack. He is still standing tall. At Starrcade. The match is finally going to happen, there will be no rules, no disqualifactions and no countouts.

WWF RAW - November 25. 1996
Clips are shown of last week between the confrontation between Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels until Steve Austin and Vader came down to interrupt and it led to a four-way brawl. But tonight, one of the men that were in the brawl is here tonight and in action. It's the RAW In-Ring Return of Bret Hart as he takes on Bradshaw. And also speaking of returns, to kick off RAW is the Return of The Undertaker and he's in action up next on Monday Night RAW.
Vince McMahon and Jerry Lawler are your hosts for Monday Night RAW. Lawler is very happy saying that tonight Bradshaw is going to embarrass Bret Hart here tonight and he for one can't wait to see the look on Stu and Helen's face on TV.
Match 1: The Undertaker vs John Chrystal The Undertaker has returned to Monday Night RAW ever since being Buried Alive and ever since getting a big victory over Mankind at Survivor Series and also getting his hands on Paul Bearer, and Papa Shango is the next on The Undertaker's hitlist. Undertaker completely dominates Chrystal as Chrystal never gets any offense in and we've noticed also too that The Undertaker has started to wear all black attire. Taker grabs Chrystal and chokeslams him to the mat. And we all know what's next. Taker scoops Chrystal on his head and hits the dreaded tombstone piledriver on Chrystal and gets the victory. Winner: The Undertaker
After The Undertaker gets the pinfall victory, he grabs a microphone and says that at Survivor Series was not only the end for Mankind, but the end of Paul Bearer, and now the last victim in Paul Bearer's conspiracy is Papa Shango. Taker says that at Season's Beatings II. He doesn't want any one on one match with Papa Shango, The match he's chosen for Papa Shango's demise is a Rest In Peace Match. Taker tells everyone that there are no rules in a Rest In Peace Match that means The Undertaker has all authority to beat Shango's carcass all over Palm Beach. Taker tells Shango that there will be nowhere to run at Season's Beatings II and after he beats Shango, then it will go on to the 1997 Royal Rumble because he's heard that Stone Cold Steve Austin will be the first man in the Royal Rumble Match, so no matter what happens win or lose. He's going to enter The Royal Rumble Match, and after he disposes of Shango, he will take all 29 men's souls and go on to WrestleMania 13 to become WWF Champion again and if anyone has a problem with it, then they can rest in peace. Undertaker has thrown down the gauntlet, not only has he challenged Papa Shango to a match at Season's Beatings, but he is also joining Stone Cold Steve Austin in the 1997 Royal Rumble Match. The first two have drawn their name in the hat early. Undertaker and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Match 2: Non-Title Match Hunter Hearst Helmsley vs Bob Holly Hunter Hearst Helmsley has been on a roll since he's won back the WWF Intercontinental Championship and he takes on Bob Holly in a Non-Title Match. Holly gets in an amount of offense but Helmsley somehow battles back in this match and just taunts Holly making it enough for Holly to make a comeback in this match and almost gets a close victory by hitting a dropkick on Helmsley. Helmsley battles back in the match and looks set for the pedigree. But Holly counters out of the pedigree and backdrops Helmsley to the mat. Holly goes to the top rope and this could be big for Holly. Holly heads to the top and hits a cross body on Helmsley. Holly covers Helmsley, 1. 2. 3. Bob Holly has beaten the WWF Intercontinental Champion. Holly has beaten the WWF Intercontinental Champion, what a victory for the former Nascar Driver who has upset the WWF Intercontinental Champion and Helmsley has gotta be beside himself. Helmsley kicks the ropes in frustration and begins to argue with the ref but it doesn't matter because Holly has beaten the Intercontinental Champion. Winner: Bob Holly
Vince and Jerry show the fans what happened moments ago in where Vince does his "Anything Can Happen" cliché and it did because Bob Holly has defeated Hunter Hearst Helmsley. Lawler screams saying it was a fluke. Helmsley wasn't feeling well tonight. Vince and Jerry take us to Bob Holly who is talking with Jesse Ventura. Ventura says that he's really proud at what Bob Holly accomplished tonight, so next week. Holly will have another match with Helmsley, and it will be for the Intercontinental Championship. Kevin Kelly comes up and tells Holly how he's feeling about beating Helmsley. Holly says that he's been in the WWF for two years and he had a big rocky start, but tonight. He finally got something in him and next week, he is going to repeat deja vu all over again and become the Intercontinental Champion next week.
In the Ring. Jim Ross is getting set to interview The Nation of Domination and here they come, all members of the Nation of Domination, Last Week. Ahmed Johnson challenged all of the Nation of Domination Members to face him in a Gauntlet Match and if Ahmed wins, he has his one-on-one match with the leader Faarooq. Ross talks to Faarooq saying that this feud between him and Ahmed has been well documented since WrestleMania 12 since Ahmed won the WWF Intercontinental Championship and since Faarooq has come to the WWF to form his own brand and at In Your House. Ahmed could have his chance if he beats the members of the Nation of Domination which is Tatanka, The Public Enemy and Mabel and then after. Ahmed can have his one-on-one match with Faarooq anywhere he pleases. Faarooq interrupts JR and tells him that it's not going to happen. This thing between him and Ahmed has gone on for far too long because Ahmed knows that there's no room for them here in the World Wrestling Federation. And since Ahmed won the Intercontinental Title. He's done everything under the sun to rid the world of Ahmed and that happened last summer when they put Ahmed in the hospital because there's only room for one African American here in the World Wrestling Federation and that's Faarooq, not Ahmed Johnson. Faarooq tells the world that Slick has talked to him and Slick's found out about Ahmed Johnson's past. Faarooq tells the world that when Ahmed has a child, his father was verbally abusive to him and his brothers. Whenever Ahmed did something wrong. His father beat the hell out of him when he was a child, he used a leather belt to whip Ahmed and his brothers. And also poured boiling water on Ahmed's stomach too. And Slick also told Faarooq that Ahmed was also a violent kid himself, because at the age of 12. He beat a kid up with a baseball bat and they sent him to a Foster Home. And also, Slick told Faarooq that Ahmed was a football star himself. Well Faarooq was a football star himself, but there's a reason Ahmed failed in football is because he couldn't be the next Ron Simmons. Because he had to run to the Dallas Cowboys, but as far as Faarooq goes. He carried the Florida State Football Team and he became an All-American twice, something that Ahmed could never do. And at Season's Beatings 2. When all of the Nation beat Ahmed Johnson, Ahmed's world will come crumbling down, because Ahmed will go down as Faarooq's boy that could get his bags. What a disgusting remark by Faarooq and The Nation of Domination, they have exposed Ahmed's past childhood. You gotta wonder what Ahmed must be thinking by now.

Gunn gets the win by hitting the modified leg drop rocker dropper on Rogers to get the victory. Winner: Billy Gunn
