Note: This review was done based on the vote and opinion on our readers and lots of discussion between Scott & Justin and is in no way meant to downplay the tragedy that occured during the show.

Fun Fact:
This is the first secondary PPV that does not have the “In Your House” tag attached to it.

Sunday Night Heat:

1) Meat (w/ PMS) defeats Brian Christopher
2) Hardy Boys defeat Goldust & Blue Meanie
3) Mideon defeats Vince McMahon

Pay Per View

1) X-Pac (Sean Waltman) & Kane (Glen Jacobs) defeat D-Lo Brown (AC Connor) & Mark Henry to retain WWF Tag Team Titles when Kane pins Henry with a chokeslam at 14:43

Fun Fact: The plucky underdog and his misunderstood monster teammate stunned Owen Hart and Jeff Jarrett the night after Wrestlemania to win the Tag Titles. Kane had the belts with Mankind in 1998, but this is X-Pac’s first taste of tag team gold since another big upset: The 1-2-3 Kid and Bob Holly defeated Bam Bam Bigelow and Tatanka at the 1995 Royal Rumble.

A very hot crowd watches a good opener between 3 good workers…and Mark Henry. Why Henry is wrestling in slacks and a dress shirt is beyond me, but he honestly wrestled a good match here. The champions actually have good chemistry, and have put a shot in the arm of the tag team division. The pace of this match is a little slow, but it does work here due to the diligent work of D-Lo and the general slowness of Mark Henry. Ivory was looking pretty good on this night with a two-piece combo, but otherwise didn’t bring much to the match. JR did a nice job of pumping up the fact that X-Pac was teaching the Big Red Machine some versatility to his moveset, and how to be “a human being”. Kane even stole a top rope Plancha from his “brother” The Undertaker. A pretty good sized opener to get our show started.

Justin: This was a solid tag team opener that showcases our new champs. JR put X-Pac put over as courageous and resilient all through the match, which helps get him over as a face. X-Pac is only 26 here, according to JR, which means he is just 34 now, which is surprising. Both Kane and X-Pac got a huge pop from the fans and they were really over at this point. There was also some pretty good heat for D-Lo. I also question why Henry was wrestling in dress clothes, but I guess it was playing off the Sexual Chocolate theme. Kane hits a huge dropkick at one point which was pretty impressive. X-Pac plays face in peril throughout the match, which made this team so good, because he was great in that role and Kane was a perfect hot tag monster. Henry & Brown worked the heel tag role very well here, as well using power offense mixed with some speed to dominate X-Pac. Kane wins with the Chokeslam on Henry to polish off a good match with a hot crowd.

*** Michael Cole tells us that Vince McMahon injured his ankle during his Heat match with Mideon, and may not co-referee the World Title match. ***

2) Al Snow (Sarven) defeats Hardcore Holly (Bob Howard) to retain WWF Hardcore Title with a power bomb through a table at 12:51

Fun Fact: These two are in a Hardcore Title match together for the 4th straight PPV. Holly won at St. Valentine’s Day Massacre and Wrestlemania, in the 3-way with Billy Gunn, and Snow won at Backlash.

Fun Fact:
Al Snow’s other “friend” was Pierre, the head of a deer. Hardcore Holly destroyed Pierre a couple of weeks before this match.

These two are quite used to each other, as they’ve been beating the hell out of each other since February, and this one is no different. They move all over the arena, including the women’s restroom and the concession stand. One funny moment has Holly hitting Snow with a tray of powdered sugar at the Funnel Cakes stand. They also put some stiff moves on each other in the ring, with Holly kicking out of the Snow Plow and Snow kicking out of a chair shot. Al hits a big power bomb to retain his title and even the PPV series at 2 apiece. The crowd got quiet in the middle but the last couple of minutes picked up again. Two title matches so far, two retained titles.

The crowd gave a good pop for Snow and Pierre here, as he was reaching his peak in popularity in the WWF. They battle backstage into the concession areas and JR makes a funny reference that they aren’t near Tupelo. The match started off kind of slow but picked up when they left the ring. Snow has an awesome airbrushed shirt that says “Hardcore Reindeer Pierre” and has a picture of a deer on it. As they battle into the bathroom a guy is ordering 3 cheeseburgers and Lawler busts on him which was funny. The match slowed down a bit again in the ring and kind of dragged on a bit too long as the crowd started to lose interest, but Snow wins with a powerbomb through a table to a good pop. It was a solid enough match that went on too long, although based on what happened right after; I wish it went on all night.

*** The planned Intercontinental Title match between the Godfather and the Blue Blazer is cancelled when Owen Hart, who was supposed to come down from the rafters in a superhero-type entrance, fell 80 feet to the ring due to his harness apparently coming loose, his head snapping off a turnbuckle. As JR explains the situation to us the cameras stay on him and the crowd. Jerry Lawler is in the ring with the EMTs as they try to keep Owen alive. They then showed a promo piece for the mixed tag team match. JR made it very clear that this was not part of the show, and it is very, very real and then Lawler returns to the table clearly concerned and lets us know that, in his words: “This is not good.” ***

3) Val Venis (Sean Morley) & Nicole Bass defeat Jeff Jarrett & Debra (Marshall) when Venis pins Jarrett with the Money Shot at 6:06

Fun Fact: Nicole Bass was stalking and protecting Val and saying he owed her for the protection. That included the infamous “Brass Trombone in my brass section” comment. Bass was coming in on a good dime and needed something to do after showing up at Wrestlemania to help Sable retain her Women’s Title, only to have Sable get fired for being a bitch. Leading into the show, Val and Debra had been making eyes at each other every week, which was starting to anger Jarrett. On one memorable Raw, after Val was knocked silly, Bass gave him mouth to mouth, which Val actually ended up enjoying.

Scott: It is apparent that the entire mood of the show has changed completely as Debra and Jarrett are clearly upset during the pre-match promo and walking down the aisle. The storyline was a little bizarre as Nicole Bass wants Val, Val wants Debra, and Jarrett wants to kick Val’s ass. JR and Jerry are doing their best to get into this match but obviously everyone’s minds are elsewhere. The crowd was into it, obviously because they had no idea what was going on. From a workrate perspective it was what you’d expect. Jarrett and Venis are solid guys, but the two women were completely clueless, and this just should have been a singles match between the guys. The match was average as for the moment everyone’s minds were on Jarrett’s tag team partner.

This couldn’t have been easy for Jarrett or Debra as they were fairly close to Owen around this time. JR is struggling to get back on track too here and at this point I am not sure if Owen had passed and if he had, if they knew yet. Debra, who was very over, was looking super hot here and both she and Val get a pretty good pop from the crowd. Val messes up his shtick, saying they are in Kansas instead of Missouri, which is understandable, but it gets him some boos from the crowd. JJ and Val do most of the fighting and do a good job out there all things considered. At the end, Bass tears off Debra’s shirt to a massive pop and then JJ was going to blast Bass with the guitar, but Val caught him with a back suplex and Money Shot for the win. In a mini celebration, Bass lays a kiss on Val after the match and Venis liked it.

4) Billy Gunn (Monte Sop) defeats Road Dogg (Brian Armstrong) with the Fame-Asser at 11:12

Fun Fact: Billy Gunn craved singles fame and was tired of being pegged as a Degenerate and a tag team wrestler, and subtle commentary recently started saying how Billy was being held down. Billy completed the heel turn when he assaulted X-Pac on the 4/26 Raw and then he turned on Dogg when he tried to stop him. Gunn beat X-Pac on the 5/2 Raw which led to a big brawl with Road Dogg afterwards. They fought in a 6-man tag match against each other the week before but this is their first one-on-one encounter since the IYH: Revenge of the Taker PPV in April 1997.

A match that was tough to watch for me, since this was my favorite tag team since their inception in late-1997. Trying to watch this show continued to be difficult with what was happening to Owen Hart at the time. Road Dogg in his pre-match speech said that he was thinking of Owen. In any event this match was slow and plodding with a lot of restholds. These two definitely had the chemistry to be a fantastic tag team, but as singles stars they just didn’t have the total package. Doggie had the charisma but was a marginal worker. Mr. Ass had pretty much the same limited ability, but without the charisma. Unfortunately the Billy Gunn push had to run its course, and this was a big step for him. This was an average match to forward a push.

Road Dogg got a really big pop as he made his entrance and his mike work wais quite abbreviated on the way to the ring but he still hits the in ring intro. We get to hear “Ass Man” for the first time on PPV, and Billy had some heat but probably not as much as they were hoping for. Throughout the match, Lawler pushed Gunn big time as the leader of DX. The bout itself was kind of slow and the crowd was up and down the whole time. JR and Lawler were definitely not as amped as earlier at this point, which made the match seem a big duller as well. JR also played up how they know each other very well which makes it tough to outsmart each other in the ring. The restholds definitely slowed things up as well and every time Dogg battled back, Gunn hit a nice power move to keep control. Gunn hit Dogg with the bell hammer outside of the ring, clotheslined Dogg with his wrist tape and hit the Fameasser for the win and some mild heat. All in all, this was a pretty bland match that pretty much set the tone for Billy’s bland solo run.

5) The Union defeats the Corporate Ministry in an 8-man elimination match


Bradshaw (John Layfield) pins Test (Andrew Martin) with the Clothesline from Hell at 3:43
Ken Shamrock makes Bradshaw submit to the Anklelock at 4:43
Big Show (Paul Wight) pins Faarooq (Ron Simmons) with a chokeslam at 7:35
Big Show and Viscera (Nelson Frazier) fight down the aisle and don’t return at 12:10
Mankind (Mick Foley) knocks Big Boss Man (Ray Traylor) out with the Mandible Claw at 14:45

Fun Fact:
The Union consisted of four men who were blamed for the Corporation’s pre-ministry failures and were fired. They then waged a war against the now combined Corporate Ministry, which included Shane McMahon usurping his father as head of the group the night after Backlash. This was when Shane really took over as a big time heel and carried the heel side of the storyline for this two-month stretch while Vince played his tweener role to perfection.

A match that had two of the most bizarre theme songs I’ve ever heard. The Corporate Ministry theme was a morph of Vince’s theme and Taker’s theme, but the Union theme was an odd rock riff that would never be heard again. Other than Shamrock and maybe Foley, we’re dealing with all power guys and not much fluidity. It was cool that Big Show’s chokeslam was called the “Showstopper” but that probably was short-lived to that being Shawn Michaels’ nickname, not that it really mattered in 1999, but I digress. You can tell Foley was hurt because this match was up to almost 12 minutes and he didn’t get in the match until then. Big Show impressed the most here, as he looked very strong against everyone and even slammed the huge Viscera to the mat. Foley gets the final pin and the match is over, and it was what it was: A slow match involving a myriad of power guys that was done to put Big Show over as a monster and Foley the Union leader who gets the job done.

The crowd gives a huge pop for the Union but just mild heat for the Corporate Ministry. The match was basic early on as the Ministry worked over Test, and they remain quiet and restless for the opening minutes. Test put up a good fight and looked strong when he was in there, but Bradshaw beat him clean with the CFH. Shamrock came in to a good reaction and looked pretty good as he eventually made Bradshaw tap out to the Anklelock. Ken then hit a huge belly to belly on Faarooq and went to the Anklelock, but Boss Man pulled him to the rope. As usual, Ken refused to break the hold and hit the suplex on the ref to get DQ’d. The Union regained control, however, as Show came right in and drilled Faarooq with the Chokeslam for the elimination. Show then hit Boss Man with a huge clothesline and tackle and Boss Man decided to head back to the dressing room, but Show followed and brought him back in. Viscera and Show ended up on the floor and fought to the back, but aren’t legal or counted out, and they just left. Lawler just randomly says they are counted out a few minutes later. I guess it was an easy out to avoid Show having to job clean on PPV. Mankind was barely in the match, which I am sure had to do with his bad knee, and we would learn more about that a couple of weeks after this show. The match slowed way down with Boss Man and Mick being the last two. The crowd tried to stay into it, but they faded until Mankind hit the Socko Claw for the win to end a pretty boring match. The heat was there, but the match was just too basic and flat. Still, Mankind is put over strong and gets a really good pop when he wins.

*** JR tells the world live on PPV that Owen Hart died from his injuries. We both thought it was much earlier in the card, but it was 3 matches between the accident and this announcement. ***

6) The Rock (Rocky Johnson) defeats Triple H (Paul Levesque) by disqualification at 11:26

Fun Fact: The Rock’s face turn was slowly but surely going to happen, and after he lost his second straight title match to Steve Austin at Backlash, Shane decided that he had outlived his usefulness. So when the Corporate Ministry was combined, Rock combined efforts with Stone Cold, which pretty much pushed him fully on the face side. On the 5/2 Raw, Rock and Austin were forced to face each other in a lumberjack match, but instead they combined forces and attacked the Corporate Ministry. As they fought up the ramp, Triple H tossed Rock off the stage, breaking his arm (in storyline obviously) and Undertaker tossed Stone Cold off the stage. On the 5/17 Raw Rock and Undertaker fought in a casket match. Triple H interfered and re-injured the broken arm, then locked Rock in the casket and pummeled it with a sledgehammer.

Fun Fact II:
Before the match, Rock was doing a promo when Chyna appeared on camera and started jawing with him. With Rock distracted Triple H came from behind and attacked Rock. All of a sudden Mankind, his match just completed, jumped in and saved Rock from the beating and attacked Triple H. Trips finally took Mankind out with a lead pipe. These events led to the 5/31Raw when Triple H defeated Mankind in a no DQ match by whacking Mankind’s knee with a sledgehammer. In reality Mick Foley needed knee surgery, so this was a way to get him off camera for a couple of months.

Fun Fact III:
Triple H debuted his “Our Time” theme, at least the first version of it. It would be tweaked over the next few months.

Scott: Obviously from this point on the show is secondary, as once the world knew that Owen Hart was dead, the rest of the night was pretty weird. These two wrestled a legendary match last year at Summerslam, and now with whoever the #1 contender is in limbo, this match went a long way as to that. To JR and the King’s credit, they tried to keep the energy level up under the circumstances, and the match was very good. You can see Triple H changing his look and attitude to a more serious, very intense competitor. You can also see his body starting to chisel a bit too. This was where the steroids rumors started as by the end of the year he’d be totally ripped. The match is solid as always as both men go all out, with Rock’s “broken arm” and Triple H exploiting it. Trips knocks out Earl Hebner to cause the DQ, but the action goes on for another few minutes. Rock knocks Triple H around but both men have made their point. They hate each other, and this feud is just beginning.

Before the match started, Hunter tried to get the ref to count Rock out after the pre-match beatdown, but he made his way out to the ring, cast still on. Oddly, JR sounded a bit more upbeat than he did the past few matches and I wonder if was relieved after making the horrible announcement in a strange way? Either that or he was just sucking it up and trying his best to put everything out of his head. The crowd was just red hot for Rock. The match had lots of brawling and once Hunter took over he worked the broken arm, ripping off the cast. Earl eventually got into it with Hunter, so he just drilled him, drawing the DQ. The match was solid but the ending was really weak. Rock landed a chair shot after the match and then the two of them brawled all around the ring with Rock dominating. Chyna got involved, but gets taken out as Rock hits the Rock Bottom and then goes for the People’s Elbow on a chair. However, Chyna distracted Rock and Hunter beat him down with a chair until Mankind made the save. The match was well worked, the crowd was hot all the way through and JR and King were surprisingly solid as well, all things considered.

7) Undertaker (Mark Callaway) defeats Steve Austin to win WWF World Title after interference involving Vince and Shane McMahon (guest referees) at 22:58

Fun Fact: Well, this all started after Backlash when Stephanie McMahon was kidnapped by the Undertaker. The next night on Raw Taker was going to “marry” Vince’s daughter in an “unholy wedding.” Taker apparently wanted control of the WWF and wouldn’t give Stephanie up until he got it. Here’s what happened, courtesy of John Petrie’s recap from the RSPW archives: The lights go out and the Ministry of Darkness make their way to the ring, carrying Stephanie on the Undertaker’s cro–symbol. Stephanie is laid against the ropes and Paul Bearer begins a ceremony of some kind, reading from a book he’s carrying. Quickly it’s apparent that this is a WEDDING ceremony, and that Steph is being hitched to the Undertaker. When asked “will you–“, she screams “nooooo!!!!” Ken Shamrock runs in to make the save, but he’s grabbed by Faarooq and Bradshaw, held down for a monster splash from Viscera (big “ooh!” from the crowd). Backstage Shane McMahon is preventing the Corporation from making the save. Paul Wight tries to make the rescue, and he manages to take out the Acolytes, Viscera and Mideon, but falls victim to the Undertaker and a baseball bat shot (the bat having been dropped by Shamrock when he hit the ring). Ross and Cornette are disgusted at the actions of the Undertaker and his Ministry. *KEE-RASH!* “Stone Cold” Steve Austin charges down the ramp, leveling Mideon along the way. Austin and the Undertaker trade blows in the ring. Mideon attacks, but Austin takes him out again. The Undertaker quietly slips out the other side of the ring. Austin grabs a steel chair and starts nailing Ministry members. Mideon continues to get the worst of it, suffering a Stone Cold Stunner as well before it’s all over. Austin unties Stephanie from the symbol, and she gives him a big hug, which he, the reluctant hero, isn’t sure how to handle. Vince makes his way to the ring and Stephanie hugs him. The show closes with Austin and McMahon trading looks, Vince grateful, Austin wary as always. On the 5/3 Raw, Shane, now fully in control of the Corporate Ministry, confronts his father and reveals he was behind the kidnapping, the burning cross on the house, the teddy bear, everything. This was when the Raw ratings were really going through the roof and absolutely crushed Nitro week after week. The main event of the 5/10 Raw was Shane, Undertaker, and Triple H vs. Rock, Austin, and Vince. The overrun rating was an unheard of 9.3, with an overall show rating of 8.1, the highest rated Raw in WWF history. It also helped that Nitro wasn’t on that night, probably due to the NBA Playoffs on TNT. They would have gotten crushed anyway. There were some other cool visuals during these Raws, like on 5/17 when Austin tied the Undertaker to his own symbol and raised it through the rafters.

Fun Fact II:
Shane McMahon had made himself the special guest referee for this match. However on that highly rated 5/10 Raw, Commissioner Shawn Michaels came out to announce that Vince McMahon would be the other referee for the title match. However, earlier on Heat, Shane had announced that Steve Austin would have to face Mideon before the PPV. Vince objected, and Shane said Austin could get out of the match if Vince took his place. Vince agreed but, with his Stooges and the Union trapped backstage, he got his ass kicked by the Corporate Ministry. He was taken from the arena in an ambulance and it was unknown if he would be able to come back to referee the match.

Our main event is a match between two men who know each other very well. However both men are not 100%. Since winning his first WWF title in March 1998, Austin has gone balls to the wall in every match and every feud. Well this is the first match where you may start to see the residual effects of his broken neck from 1997, as he’s a little more methodical than in the recent past. As for the Undertaker, it’s pretty well known that he’s been in constant pain from nagging injuries since mid-1998. His groin was torn, his ankles hurt, and he hadn’t taken an extended break since 1994. This once again was a match completely storyline-driven, as this started the night after Backlash when Taker was about to “marry” the kidnapped-Stephanie McMahon in an unholy wedding. The Raws during this stretch were absolute must-see TV, particularly due to the awesome job Vince did as the tweener-face who was helping Austin for the sake of his family and his company. We’re not sure at this point if the wrestlers knew about Owen Hart’s death, but they pretty much went about as professionals as if nothing was wrong, which to this day still brings up debate as to whether they should have continued this show at all. The crowd in the arena was going insane, so its unknown if they were actually told about Owen the same time we were told at home. On the other hand they did see Owen fall, so I’m sure it was in the back of all the fan’s minds. The match is solid, but way too long and the end is very cluttered, as both competitors and referees fall to the canvas and somehow Taker gets a pretty weak pin and he’s the new champ. Obviously they wanted to go home with this quick after what happened earlier in the night, so it was “Get it over with and go off the air.”

Shane came out first to referee the match and Pat Patterson headed out in a ref’s shirt after him and JR surmised that he was replacing Vince. They jaw at each other, but Pat stayed there as Undertaker made his way out. Shane and Pat go at it again and Patterson ate a Taker chokeslam to put him out. Austin then came out to a monster pop as usual and JR and King were pretty much their usual selves by this point. Austin started off hot, but Shane’s distraction turned the tide in the match for Undertaker. The match was a standard Austin/Taker brawl with Shane running interference where need be. The storyline of Vince being out and Shane in as ref was definitely paid off throughout the match with the biased actions of Shane. The crowd was rabid for Austin during the whole match and I like how they played it as Vince sacrificing himself for Austin. I wish Vince wasn’t the higher power and they kept the quasi-face run going a bit longer to see more interaction between the two and that also would have given Shane a chance to continue to grow as the main heel figure. A couple of cool spots occurred when Taker gets his fist and head put through the stained glass windows along the aisle. Austin hit the elbow off the second rope, but Shane screwed him on the count again, like at Survivor Series. Austin then tossed Taker into Shane and hit a chairshot, leading to Brisco coming in as a ref and getting a 2 count. Taker took out Brisco and the crowd started a big “HBK” chant, but Shawn was not in the house. Taker regained control late in the match and Vince hobbled out to the ring. Austin hit the Stunner and Vince counted, but Shane stopped him before 3, again screwing Austin. Austin yanked Vince around and Shane shoved Vince into Austin, who got rolled up, which allowed Shane to hit the fast 3 for the win. Austin beat up Taker after the match and then laid stunners on the whole Ministry as Shane celebrated with the title. Shane and Taker walked off with the title as Austin remained in the ring, screwed again. The match was pretty long, but it never really slowed down too much and the crowd stayed in it the whole way and the commentary was pretty good as well.

Final Analysis:

Scott: There really isn’t much to say. The show started decent enough, but once the accident with Owen happened, and most certainly once it came out that Owen had died, the show just felt average. Obviously there were many storylines advanced, including a new WWF Champion, the advancement of Triple H’s character, and the growing run of Billy Gunn. This is one of those shows you don’t remember much of on its own, but at the same time you’ll never forget it, and for all the wrong reasons.

The debate surrounding this night was always whether or not the show should have continued. I understand why people say it should have been stopped, but I also see where Vince’s point of view lies as everything happened so fast. The logistics of sending everyone home, cutting short the open satellite time and subsequently providing refunds to everyone in the arena and at home could have been mind boggling. Then again, a human being did fall from the rafters and die shortly after during the show, so it kind of puts everything else in perspective. If he had to do it all over again, I am pretty sure he would have stopped, but who really knows. I think their main problem was the angle they took in defending themselves. Instead of using the lame “he would have wanted the show to continue” line, they should have admitted that they may have made a mistake in continuing, but that everything happened so fast, they panicked and decided to go on. But, I guess that just isn’t Vince’s way. The show itself is forgettable, but a lot of the storylines leading into it were pretty important in the long run, especially Shane’s ascension to the throne. As I mentioned above, I wish they would have explored Shane as the dominant heel a bit more and left Vince as the semi-face aligned with Austin and Rock. If they would have left him face longer, his eventual heel turn would have meant a lot more and made him even more over. That is all I really have to say on this show, but in a way it was cathartic to toss the tape in and rewatch it for the first time since 1999, so I would recommend doing the same if you have a copy.
