WWF Snap of the Night by SlimJim: Tazz and Spike Dudley winning the WWF Tag Team Championship.
Tazz and Cole hype the Royal Rumble. He says two legends in wrestling will go at it at Royal Rumble…Ric Flair and Vince McMahon. Cole reminds us that Flair is the 16 time World Champion. We are shown the “Cocky” video of Rick Flair. (A nice little montage of some of the highlights of Flair’s career.) Tazz says that this match is going to be down right nasty.
Backstage: We see the Dudleyz and Stacy Kiebler walk into MSG. St. Slaughter greets them and they ask Slaughter where their dressing room is. Slaughter gives them directions. Bubba tells Slaughter he is a legend in the WWF. He smiles and says he remembers when Slaughter would stand in the middle of the ring yelling, Maggot, Loser, Wimp… They converse about the old times. As the Dudleyz walk away Slaughter says “Yeah, see ya ex-champs.” Bubba looks down and stops walking. Bubba asked why Slaughter had to go there? Slaughter says, “Because you lost. You lost the championship to a couple of punks, a couple maggots.” Devon walks around behind Slaughter. Devon starts to beat down St. Slaughter. Both Dudleyz start to kick St. Slaughter calling him maggot, gomer, that he’s all washed up… The Dudleyz challenge him to find a partner a match later tonight.
Backstage: Saturn walks up to St. Slaughter and shows him a special forces coin. Saturn offers himself as St. Slaughter’s tag partner. They bond over their military experience. Slaughter accepts Saturn as his partner and says, “Simper Fi Do or Die”. (forgive me if this phrase is misspelled).
Interview with Spike Dudley
EC Dub chants start up. Spike tells Cole that he has a piece of corn stuck in his teeth. (the three laugh) Spike talks about how great it is to win the tag titles in MSG. He can’t think of anything better. Cole talks about Tazz and Spike being in ECW together and asks what made them decide to pair up. Spike said that back in 1996, Tazz is actually the person that called him up and said he should be a part of ECW. Spike says that Tazz saw potential in him and he’s grateful. He said it makes perfect sense that the two people that know the Dudley’s style the best should have won the titles off them. Tazz asks Spike what he thinks about challenging the Dudleyz to at Tag Championship match at Royal Rumble. Spike says, “You know me Tazz. I’ll put up the title to anyone, anywhere. To the Dudleyz or anyone at Royal Rumble or any PPV. I don’t care. If you want it, come get it.” Cole says he has an idea. He says that since the three of them are all together in NYC tonight what do they say to the three of them going out tonight. Spike says that he’d have no chance of picking up any women if Cole were there. Tazz doesn’t know if his wife will let him. Spike says that if Tazz wants to hit the town later tonight, he’s got it… End of Interview.
Backstage: Spike is met by Steve Oedekerk, Star of Kung POW. Steve is telling Spike he can give him the key to getting any woman he wants. Spike readily accepts the advice. — During all this discussion Steve is talking but very much like an English dub over the voices in a ninja movie, Steve’s voice is dubbed over his own voice. Quite comical. — Woo, the unibreast from Kung POW, pulls Spike off with her. Spike shrugs and says it’s better than being with Tazz. Steve Oedekerk plugs his new movie, Kung POW.
