1) The Godfather (Charles Wright) defeats Mideon (Dennis Knight) with a Cradle at 7:31

Fun Fact: On the 10/14 Smackdown, these two men met in the ring. However, following his pre-match ritual, Godfather offered Mideon a chance to take a night with his hoes instead of fighting. Well, being an ex-pig farmer, Mideon asked if Godfather had any farm animals instead. That went over as well as you would expect, and the match started up, with Godfather winning in 1:50. Post match, however, Viscera jumped in the ring and the two men decimated the Godfather, setting up this gargantuan rematch.

Ugh, I can’t wait until this mid-card gets freshened up. Some of these matches are just god-awful to watch. These thrown together matches are just pitiful. Sure there was some backstory from the previous Thursday, but this is still brutal. Mideon is storyline-less, and Godfather has hot chicks and strippers going around with him. The characters were entertaining, but the lack of any true talent was starting to cripple the lower part of the cards. Grade: 1.5

They should have taken a hint from their Smackdown match and kept this sucker under 2:00. After his brief European title run, Mideon should have been kept far away from all PPV matches, especially ones with wrestlers who aren’t very good themselves. Both men were great characters, but were very shoddy in the ring, and were more suited for 2 minute TV matches at this point. If anything, Godfather and his ladies were over enough o at least heat up the crowd, so it wasn’t a terrible idea to have him kick off the show, it is just too bad he didn’t face someone equally as over. Grade: 1

2) Fabulous Moolah (Lillian Ellison) beats Ivory (Lisa Moretti) to win WWF Women’s Title with a roll-up at 3:01

Fun Fact: The never-ending Fabulous Moolah & Mae Young resurgence that ran until Moolah’s death in 2007 all began in late 1999, when they were special guests at a TV taping and were completely decimated by Jeff Jarrett. Well, that wasn’t enough for these two bags, as they decided to stick around, and Moolah was given a title shot. The whole thing was funny for a few months, but the whole thing would just get old by 2000.

What? Are we all supposed to cry with nostalgia at this? Moolah was old 20 fucking years ago! Ivory has not been at her best since winning the title anyway, now this. Why bother even having the title if comedy is what these women’s debacles are for? Ugh, I have no more to say, it was that bad. Grade: 0

: I get the joke, it just isn’t funny. Mae Young bumps like a mother fucker though. Grade: 0

3) The Hollys defeat the New Age Outlaws by Disqualification when Billy Gunn (Monte Sop) uses a chair at 10:11

Fun Fact:
In a very confusing situation, the Hollys were set to face the Outlaws for the titles here, but first the Outlaws had to face the Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection on the 10/14 Smackdown. Well, in a stroke of genius, the Hollys interfere and purposely cost the Outlaws the titles, thus throwing away their title shot.

Man, this show is getting no better as we move along. The 3rd straight sub-2 star match on the show, the Holly cousins and the NAO put on a sloppy match with no flow or crowd heat. Rock ‘n’ Sock have the tag straps, and they’re not defending them, as Mankind and Rock are in singles matches. The Outlaws, once the hottest, most popular, most quoted tag team in the WWF, and my 2nd favorite team of all time next to the Road Warriors are definitely running on fumes right now. The Hollys are gaining some heel heat, but just not enough to carry this match. The end was kind of bush league, with Hardcore throwing a chair into the ring, and Billy drops the Fame-Asser on Crash on the chair. Whatever, let’s move on. Grade: 1.5

Not a great match, but it had some solid moments. The Hollys were really good in the classic Memphis-style heel tag role, so their cheating and double teaming really carries this match. The Outlaws, on the other hand, contribute very little to this encounter, and it is sad to see just how far they have fallen in just one year. The Hollys were slowly getting over and could have been mainstays in the tag division, but they came along at the wrong time, as the tag division was on the verge of becoming the strongest it had ever been since the late 80s. There really isn’t much else to say here, but this show has been slow to start out of the gate. Grade: 2

4) Chyna (Joanie Laurer) defeats Jeff Jarrett in a Good Housekeeping match to win WWF Intercontinental Title with a guitar shot at 8:37

Fun Fact: This is Jeff Jarrett’s final WWF PPV appearance. His final record is 8-15, 8-18 counting Rumbles. Here is the breakdown: 1-1 (0-3) at the Rumble, 1-1 at Wrestlemania, 2-1at Summerslam, 0-2 at Survivor Series, 0-2 at KOTR, 0-2 at In Your Houses and 4-6 at “other” events. Of his 23 non-Rumble matches, seven of them ended in DQ or countout; and he was 2-5 in those instances.

Fun Fact II:
This match is the blow-off to the women-beater angle that Jarrett had been doing since August. As of late, he had been claiming that Chyna belonged in the kitchen, not in the ring; so naturally we had a “Good Housekeeping” match.

The final match for Jeff Jarrett in a WWF ring almost didn’t happen. Some blame Vince McMahon. Others blame Jim Ross. For some reason, Jarrett’s contract expired the day before this PPV. So, with the fear he would bring the IC belt to Nitro, and not show up for this show, he was paid a “generous” one-time fee of $150,000 to drop the belt and leave. Now, this brings an interesting debate. Many feel putting one of the most prestigious titles in wrestling history around a woman’s waist is degrading. Others feel it was a fitting end to a very entertaining storyline. Either way, the match was average with a lot of weapons. Jarrett lies down and his WWF career, however up and down it was, comes to an end. Jarrett was a solid mid-carder for his entire career, but in terms of consistency, it wasn’t there until the very end. Chyna is the first woman to be IC champ, but now she gets involved in a better, meatier storyline, one that will unfortunately expose her shortcomings as a wrestler against men. Grade: 2

Well, it has been a hell of a run for ol’ Double J. We have followed his WWF career since 1994, when he debuted as an aspiring country singer with an attitude. We have watched him morph into a no-nonsense NWA throwback wrestler and then back into a country star and finally to a woman-hating redneck. We have also watched him slowly shed his Memphis style ring work that featured lots of stalling and cheap heat tactics in exchange for a more modern ground based style. He was always involved in upper-mid card feuds, but in his two runs with the Fed he was always a solid, yet mediocre heel, but every time he finally found a way to generate heat, he ended up leaving shortly thereafter. In 1995, he got over with the help of the Roadie and a long IC title run, but just before he was set for a big program with Road Dogg, he split. Then in 1999, just as he was becoming a believable upper-card threat, he headed for “greener” pastures and found solace in the waiting arms of his buddy Vince Russo in WCW. There are plenty of rumors surrounding his departure, with the most prominent being that Austin refused to work with him as some say Austin held a grudge from years past when he felt he wasn’t given a chance by Jerry Jarrett while others say that Jarrett, a devout Christian, had serious issues with some of Austin’s language and catchphrases, and wasn’t shy about it. With this theory floating around, it seemed even more suspicious that Jim Ross, the head of talent relations and Austin’s good pal, just happened to let Jarrett’s deal lapse without an offer to re-up. No matter the reasoning, Jarrett held up Vince for $150,000, dropped the title to Chyna in a solid match and then headed south for the biggest push of his career. The match itself is pretty stiff, and Jarrett definitely helps Chyna look good in winning the title. Chyna was given the ball, and was ready to run with it. Grade: 2

5) The Rock (Dwayne Johnson) defeats the British Bulldog (David Smith) with the People’s Elbow at 7:18

Fun Fact: Upon his return to the WWF, the Bulldog made one thing clear: he wanted to win the World Title, which had eluded him his entire career. On the 9/23 Smackdown, the Rock was facing Triple H, who was trying to earn a spot in the Six-Pack, and the Bulldog was assigned to be the guest referee. Well, six minutes into the match, Bulldog turned on Rock, grabbed him, gave him a Powerslam and then administered the three count. Well, on the 9/30 Smackdown, turnabout was now fair play, as Bulldog received a World Title shot against Triple H, but Rock was named guest referee. And of course, just as Bulldog had Triple H beat, Rock, with microphone in hand, counted 1-2-It Doesn’t Matter If The Rock Counts 3!The final build for this match happened on 10/11 Raw, as Rock and Mankind were set to face Bulldog and Val Venis. Towards the end of the match, the Rock brandished a long tray that he had been carrying to ringside with him. On that tray, you ask? A big old pile of dog shit. Yup. Well, as you can guess, the segment closed with Bulldog on the receiving end a Rock Bottom into the dog shit. Thus, the stage was now set.

Pretty rudimentary match for the Rock and another win, similar to his match with Billy Gunn at Summerslam. At least it gives Rock something to do for this show. This is Bulldog’s first singles match on PPV since he defended the European Title against Ken Shamrock at Summerslam 1997. It is cool to see the Bulldog back in the WWF, as he was put right in the title picture, and he deserved it. Not much to write home about, as Rock wins and moves on. Grade: 2

A pretty basic match here that kind of writes the Bulldog out of the Main Events and keeps the Rock busy until he moves back up into them next month. You could still see the ring rust on Bulldog, as was expected at this point, but Rock doesn’t really get into a groove either. Regardless, the match is a quick one and as quickly as this feud started, it ends. Sadly the most memorable part of the storyline was Bulldog getting Rock Bottomed on a tray of shit, but such was life in the Attitude era. Grade: 2

6) The Hardy Boys defeat Edge & Christian in a Ladder Match when Jeff Hardy grabs the money at 16:30

Fun Fact: On the 9/30 Smackdown, Terri Runnells announced that she had decided to offer her managerial services and a $100,000 prize to one lucky tag team. She chose the Hardys and Edge & Christian and announced that they would face off in the Terri Invitational Tournament Best-of-Five series. Edge and Christian won the first match on the 9/30 Smackdown and the second match on the 10/4 Raw. The Hardys then rallied from two down to win matches 3 (10/7 Smackdown) and 4 (10/14 Smackdown). They actually fought one extra match, because the original match 4 on the 10/11 Raw saw the teams fight to a Double DQ, so one more match was added. Terri then announced that the finals would take place at No Mercy and the money would be hanging from the ceiling, thus resulting in a Ladder Match.

Scott: This was for money and Terri Runnels’ services. These two teams were growing in experience, respect, and most importantly, guts. The spots these two teams hit with ladders, and their own bodies, are inhuman. They smack the shit out of each other with them, and give everything they have. They will do it again in the future, and those matches will be just as good, in some cases better. This was the first one, and it was spectacular. Terry was spectacular, as this was a good role for her: Hot slutty manager wearing barely anything. It actually woke the crowd up out of a slumber of what has been an uninteresting PPV. Grade: 4

Justin: If wrestling were covered by ESPN, this match would have turned up as an “Instant Classic” on ESPN Classic the very next day. These two teams had been putting out solid efforts since their respective debuts, but they had yet to have that breakout performance that really elevated them to the next level. Well, both teams decided this was their chance, and they basically go out and re-write the Ladder Match formula and establish the blueprint for all future TLC and Ladder matches that were to come over the next 5 years. Some of the moves they pull out are insanely creative, ridiculously dangerous and just breathtaking to watch. This is one of those matches that you just need to see, not hear about. The Hardys would actually get jumpstarted here, while Edge and Christian would still search around for the final piece of the puzzle, a piece that would finally fall into place in April of next year. Grade: 4.5

*** Rock comes out to the ring and challenges the winner of the main event to a WWF World Title match. As he’s leaving the ring Triple H comes out and beats the hell out of him with a sledgehammer. This comes into play later in the night. ***

7) Val Venis (Sean Morely) defeats Mankind (Mick Foley) when he reverses the Mandible Claw into a splash at 9:26

Fun Fact: On the 9/27 Raw, Mankind held a special “This is Your Life” ceremony for his good friend Rock. He gave him a few presents which included a “Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection” jacket and Rock’s very own sock puppet: Mr. Rocko. Well, he may have been a face, but he was still quite the dick, so Rock shit on Mick’s ceremony and continued to treat him as a dork that was beneath him. Later in the show, the ever present G-TV captured Val taking Mr. Rocko out of a trash can and stuffing his tights with it. That week on Smackdown, Mick called Val out and demanded that he return Mr. Rocko to its rightful owner. Val demurred and Mick proceeded to threaten him, but Val just walked out. Later in the night, Mick was involved in a brawl with the Dudley Boyz and was then attacked by Val who proceeded to place Mick in a testicular claw with Mr. Rocko. It was a bizarre sight to see, but Val was officially a heel now. On the next weeks Smackdown, Rock challenged Val to a singles match and this occurred (courtesy the icon, CRZ): MANKIND is out and grabbing the chair. Gut shot on Venis – but he ducks and Rock tastes the chair. Venis covers – 1, 2, NO! Mankind puts the Mandible claw on Venis – but Venis hits a low blow and pushes him into Rock, who promptly gives Mankind Rock Bottom. And there’s a Urinage for Venis as well. 1, 2, 3. (10:14) Mankind rips off his “Rock & Sock Connection” jacket and has a few words with the Rock. Rock has a few words for Mankind…are they breaking up? Well, it seemed as if Mick had finally had enough of Rock taking their friendship for granted and not reciprocating the love. The following week on Smackdown, the New Age Outlaws placed an open challenge for the Tag Team Titles, which Mick quickly snatched up for the Rock ‘n’ Sock. He then found his “best friend” and told him that they had a match with the Outlaws, but before he could get to the Tag Title part, Rock got quite pissed off with the whole thing and stormed off, claiming this is the LAST time the Rock ‘n’ Sock would ever team up. Later in the show, the teams faced off, and thanks to interference from the Hollys, Mick and Rock won the straps, much to the consternation of Rocky. The Rock ‘n’ Sock story does not end here, but for the moment it does, as nothing else occurred prior to this PPV, so we will continue the story next month at Survivor Series.

This stems from Val Venis stealing Mr. Rocko. Val was floating around aimlessly right now, and needed something to do. He would get back to a high profile storyline by mid-2000. Here, he beats Mankind through psychology, beating on Mankind’s neck throughout the match, and in the end, the two fall to the canvas, and Val lands on Mick’s neck and gets the pin. Foley needs a character refreshing, and soon he’ll get it. Grade: 2.5

A well worked match here in Val’s first major show as an upper-mid card heel. The story here was well woven and very intriguing, as the Rock ‘n’ Sock Connection was quickly crumbling, and Val was smack in the midst of the whole mess. The psychology here is top notch, as Val destroys Mick’s neck and garners the biggest win of his young career as he pins Mankind cleanly in the middle of the ring on PPV. Despite the beating, Mick manages to reclaim Mr. Rocko and Val is quickly fazed out of the Rock ‘n’ Sock storyline and into other matters. The heel turn was definitely good for him, as he had run out of things to do as the porn star face, and he did a good job with his new role. Grade: 3

8) X-Pac (Sean Waltman) defeats Kane (Glen Jacobs), Faarooq (Ron Simmons), and Bradshaw (John Layfield) in a Four Corners match

Kane pins Bradshaw with a Chokeslam at 8:25
X-Pac pins Kane with a Leg lariat at 8:32
X-Pac pins Faarooq with the X-Factor at 10:08

This was about as interesting as an Acolytes vs. X-Pac/Kane match. This relationship was deteriorating, as X-Pac and Kane were tag champs one minute, but once X-Pac changes his attitude, you knew this wasn’t going to last. Tori would become the focal point of the storyline, but for now, it’s just X-Pac winning the match, and building his character up to stronger mid-card levels, and would stay there for the better part of the next year. Kane is becoming more and more of sympathetic character as the announcers were always saying X-Pac was turning Kane into a human being. Then, as the story progresses, he made Kane even more emotional. That would continue on over the coming months. Kane has Tori as his girlfriend right now, still another sign he wants to be “normal”. She would take a bigger role soon. Grade: 2.5

Justin: A unique match that was hindered by its placement on the card, after the Ladder Match and before the heavily-hyped Main Event. In just a few months, X-Pac has gone from loveable, plucky underdog to a weird tweener, as he was still buddies with Kane but he then hooks up with the freshly reformed D-Generation X on the 10/25 Raw. He kept assuring Kane and Tori that the D-X stuff was “on the side,” and that he and Kane were tight, but that would all change very quickly. Over the past months, X-Pac had really brought out a new, fresh side of Kane that hadn’t been seen before. He convinced him to give up the voice box and try his best to speak on his own. He taught him that he wasn’t a freak and that he could be normal, even landing him a new girlfriend, Tori. He was humanizing Kane before our very eyes, which makes the upcoming months that much more difficult for him. The Acolytes were still a dominant tag team, but were quickly getting stale in the current incarnation. They too would get a new look as the Millennium dawned, one that would make them very big and marketable stars. The match itself is nothing special, but is just a chance to get X-Pac a big win to coincide with his upcoming turn. Grade: 2.5

9) Triple H (Paul Levesque) defeats Steve Austin (Steve Williams) in an Anything Goes match to retain WWF World Title with a Pedigree after the Rock accidentally hits Austin in the leg with a sledgehammer at 21:53

Fun Fact: Most of the build up to this match centered on lots of brawling, fighting and interfering between Austin, Triple H, Rock and Bulldog. The officially impetus for this match stems from the end of Summerslam when Triple H brutalized Austin’s knee with a steel chair, putting him on the shelf for a month. When Austin came back, he began hunting Triple H with a vengeance. The most shocking, yet bizarre occurrence took place on the 10/11 Raw when Austin baited Hunter into the backstage area and a brawl broke out. All of a sudden, Austin tosses Triple H into a coaches’ locker room where he comes face to face with a real live rattlesnake. The show fades on Austin laughing and Hunter screaming. Then, on the 10/14 Smackdown, Triple H showed up a disgusting mess, covered in bandages and gauze. Halfway through the show, they cut to the back, where Chyna kept claiming that Hunter couldn’t breathe and needed to go to the hospital. The rest of the show was built around his impending return from the hospital and eventually closed with this altercation (courtesy the beautiful CRZ): Triple H is back from the hospital and Chyna’s helping him walk. They enter the dressing room where Austin is. “Take a good look at it – take a good look – this is what you did to me – all right? This belt – it doesn’t mean my life – it’s not worth my life…to me.” Austin says “I don’t want it this way.” H says “You’re gonna get it this way. Here’s your Championship, take it.” Chyna says “I hope this makes you happy, Steve,” and while Austin turns to face her, H waffles him with the title and stomps away. Here’s a double-team. Why, I’m getting the impression that old H was just fine all along! Hey, maybe that WAS glass between him and the snake! H rips off the makeup – oh, hey, it was just makeup!! Austin’s head meets a steel door. “You stupid son of a bitch! This title means more to me than it will ever, ever mean to you!” Credits are up as H removes the stuffing (“swelling”) from his mouth and spits it onto Austin.

Scott: This is the first of three meetings over the next year-plus that would define the great rivalry these two would have. They have met in a one-one-encounter on PPV when they opened the Buried Alive show in October 1996. Even that match was entertaining, but now the stage is bigger, and the stakes are higher. Austin was named #1 contender in a match on RAW in September, and was slated to face the winner of the Unforgiven main event here in Cleveland. This was definitely the year of the “no DQ” main event. It seems every main event this year has no rules attached to it. Triple H was still fine tuning his heel persona, and was still trying to get over with the crowd. This match helped a lot. Austin beat the shit out of him with every available weapon in the arena. They fight through the crowd, near the entrance, and in the ring. Triple H was still green in a few ways, as he was visibly telling Austin what spots were coming up. At least he stopped doing that. Austin put everything into this match, considering it would be his last for 11 months. There is a great spot where Austin grabs a chair and systematically pummels the Game with it, just like Helmsley did to Austin after the Summerslam main event. In the end Rock, who said he gets the winner at Survivor Series, comes in to help Austin out, but whacks Austin by accident with the sledgehammer Vince McMahon took away from Hunter before the match. That enables Trips to make the pin, and retain the title. Austin beats the hell out of Hunter after the match, but the damage has been done. This would be Austin’s last title shot until Wrestlemania XVII, but we’re not even close to there yet. Great match, one of many that Triple H would have over the next year. Grade: 4

A really good brawl that officially, finally was supposed to put Triple H over the top for good as a Main Event heel. Unfortunately, while progress was made, a number of fans still weren’t completely buying it, and it would take a major shock and super-hot feud to finally get the Game over. Austin, on the other hand, is in a completely different position, as he puts over the up and comer and begins to prepare for life without wrestling. Stone Cold would try and hold things together for a few weeks, but it was soon revealed that his neck was so broken down and that he would need spinal fusion surgery; a surgery that would keep him out of the ring for a full 12 months. Knowing that he was fucked, Austin goes balls to the wall here and really does his best to put Hunter over. Rock interferes here as well to set up the Triple Threat Main Event at Survivor Series, which would be eagerly anticipated as the weeks wore on. This is a fun match and it was good to see Austin trying his best to make a new star. Grade: 3.5

Final Analysis:

Scott: This show was very hot and cold, as we had some real dogs in the beginning, and a couple of 4-star gems towards the end. The mid-card continues to be sub-par, but over the next few months that would change. I vaguely remember watching this show because it was the same night as the 15-inning marathon between the Mets and the Braves in the National League Championship Series. Austin will go on medical leave next month to have much needed neck surgery he’s blown off for over 2 years. Good thing, because he has been the motherfucker of professional wrestling in that time. Now with Rock as the resident face, and Triple H as the hot heel, Austin can take some time to mend wounds just like Undertaker. It’s been a while since two big time main eventers were off at the same time, but many were here to pick up the slack. The WWF is kicking WCW’s ass week after week, and there’s no sign Ted Turner is going to come back anytime soon. As for this show, I’ll call it thumbs in the middle. Final Grade: C+

October of 1999 will forever live on as one of the most controversial and important months in wrestling history. Mere weeks before this show a very desperate WCW lured head WWF writers Vince Russo and Ed Ferrera to Atlanta with promises of full autonomous control and a very big guaranteed contract. Both men jumped at the chance and left Vince McMahon and the WWF hanging in limbo. Many experts claimed that this was the shot in the arm WCW needed and that Russo and Ferrera, forever claiming they led the WWF resurgence, would rebuild the once proud promotion that had been destroyed over the course of 1999. Following their departure, Vince flipped out and made all non-wrestlers sign guaranteed deals. A few staff members, including creative team members Terry Taylor and Bill Banks, and left for Atlanta as well. Add a disgruntled Jeff Jarrett to the mix and this seemed like June of 1996 all over again. In addition to the disarray of the creative team, Steve Austin was headed for surgery that would keep him out of the spotlight for a year and the WWF now seemed like a ship without a rudder. Well, mainly thanks to a quick rebuild of certain Main Eventers combined with fresh writing and stories and a huge influx of talent, the WWF would make a seamless transition into the year 2000 and would leave WCW in its dust, as Russo wouldn’t end up making it past January in his new position. New head writer Chris Kreski would lead the WWF to its greatest year of combined storytelling and in-ring action in a long, long time. This show is a microcosm of the chaos that was going on at the time, as most of what was written for this show would end up being erased once Kreski took over. The show itself is significant and worth a watch due to the Ladder Match and Main Event, but other than that there isn’t much else going on. Final Grade: C+
