Royal rumble hype
So the Royal Rumble is gone thanks to the site moving to a new server.
....No worries, I can get that back up faster than y'all can say Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovalcanocanoiosis.
Wait, let me start spelling it, Pneumonouh..... Royal Rumble hype.
January 24, 1999
Live from the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, CA
Austin, there is no chance in hell....no chance in hell you'll ever again be the World Wrestling Federation Champion!
The Royal Rumble.
Austin has drawn #1. It's unanimous.
Oh come on!
And the second man will be Vince McMahon.
Give it up ladies & gentlemen for, the most omniscient, the most omnipotent sports entertainer....Mr. Vincent K. McMahon!
If you want me to beat Vince McMahon's *** all night long, give me a hell yeah!
That individual who eliminates Austin will be $100,000 richer!
Eh, eh! Oh no, there ain't no way that's going to happen!
One man left standing.
I HATE AUSTIN! I HATE AUSTIN!
Vince McMahon, I will win the Royal Rumble.
There is no chance in hell.
I'm going to get me some.
You will know that "Austin 3:16 says I just whipped your ***!"
The 1999 Royal Rumble: No Chance In Hell!
***The opening pyro explodes as the Royal Rumble's theme song, "No Chance In Hell" plays, and the camera cuts to the arena, looking at thousands of fans, and some holding signs for those who have attended the Royal rumble from the sold-out Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, CA.***
JR: We are live in Southern California. The sold-out Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, on a night Mr. McMahon guarantees Stone Cold Steve Austin has no chance in hell to win the Royal Rumble Match! Hello everybody, I'm Jim Ross with Jerry "The King" Lawler at ringside and King, what a night it is going to be! The Royal Rumble Match....30 participants, a shot at the WWF Championship at Wrestlemania, and a $100,000 bounty at stake.
King: And for the first time ever in the history of the Royal Rumble, a woman. Chyna is entered in the Royal Rumble. Wow!

***Road Dogg makes his entrance and gets some decent pop from the crowd.***

Howard Finkel: His opponent in this Hardcore contest....representing Team Corporate, weighing 297lbs....One half of the World Wrestling Federation Tag Team Championship....The Big Bossman!
JR: Bossman laying out the challenge, Road Dogg accepted. But I find it awfully suspicious that The Corporation....Mr. McMahon went ahead and made this a Hardcore Championship Match when it was originally scheduled to be a non-title match, but Road Dogg has found his mix in this type of atmosphere.
King: Oh, so you're suspicious about that, right? So that they would stack the deck in The Bossman's favor and that makes you suspicious. The Road Dogg is the Hardcore Champion. Of course he should have to defend his title.

Big Boss Man climbs each turnbuckle in turn, garnering heat from the crowd as he celebrates his victory.
Howard Finkel: Here is your winner, and neeeewwww World Wrestling Federation Hardcore Champion....The Big Bossman!
JR: Road Dogg took a little too much time, and Bossman countered with the Bossman Slam, and just as quick as that, Bossman picks up a huge victory!
King: Oh boy, this is great. What a feather in the cap for The Corporation! We have a new Hardcore Champion!
JR: So Bossman picks up the win, and coming up next folks, the Intercontinental Championship is on the line between Badd *** Billy Gunn and Ken Shamrock.
***Video hyping the Billy Gunn vs Ken Shamrock feud plays***
2 weeks ago on RAW, Billy Gunn moons Ken Shamrock's sister, who is sitting at ringside attending the show. Shamrock took offense and snapped, attacking Billy Gunn in the process.

Mankind asks The Rock how it feels to be in a match that he can't win, but Mankind can't lose.
How is The Rock going to make Mankind say "I quit"? A Corporate Elbow here and a Corporate Elbow there. The Rock plans on sprinkling a Rock Bottom here and a Rock Bottom there. The Rock's gonna take Mankind out to the English announce table, and The Rock's gonna go down the line....Spanish announce table, French announce table, ho ching ming chow, Chinese announce table. All the languages down The Rock's Rumble. Then The Rock is gonna drag Mankind down Know Your Role Boulevard. Hang that right, right there on Jabroni Drive, and there it is....The Smackdown Hotel. Take Mankind's candy *** from room to **** room until it's checkout time.
Mankind says he will not say them here or there. He will not say them anywhere. Mankind says he will not say those words. He will not say "I quit".
The Rock says indestructable The Rock's ***. The Rock plans on proving to Mankind, and the millions, and millions of The Rock's fans. When it's all said and done, Mankind will realize that even though Mankind has one ear, The Rock has two....which means The Rock is gonna hear that S.O.B scream "I quit".
Mankind says There will be no disqualification, no countout, no Corporate members at ringside, and no stopping the match for excessive blood loss....because mark his words, at the Royal Rumble, there will be excessive blood loss, and he's not going to let The Rock get off easy. There will be no knockouts, because if there is, he's going to wake him back up to knock him back down again. It may be an I Quit Match, but he's not going to use submission holds. What he is going to do very simply is beat the living hell out of The Rock until he can't take it anymore, and The Rock will look up at him with that ridiculous eyebrow, and he says the two magic words, "I quit"!
***End of video promo. The camera cuts backstage, where Dok Hendrix is interviewing The Rock***
Dok Hendrix: Well, here we go Rock. It is showtime, the table is set. The big question is simply this: Will you be able to do what no one has ever done, and make Mankind utter the words, "I quit"?
The Rock: First and foremost, Dok....know your role and SHUT your mouth! I tell you what, Mankind: There's something about this whole situation that really befuddles The Rock....because you see, The Rock isn't just some roody poo candy *** on the corner of Know Your Role Boulevard and Jabroni Drive, that you're just gonna have your way with The Rock. Well, nah-ah....because tonight, in front of the thousands of Rock's fans here tonight, all chanting his name, and the millions, and millions of The Rock's fans watching live, The Rock guaran****tees to prove to you that The Rock is The Great One, and The Rock is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment today, and after you utter the words "I quit", The Rock will go down as being the best **** WWF Champ there ever was. If you smeeeell what The Rock ***takes off sunglasses*** is cookin'! ***The Rock does his eyebrow***

***Mankind's music plays and he comes out to a standing ovation***
Howard Finkel: His opponent, weighing 287lbs, the World Wrestling Federation Champion....Mankind!

King: Right, and when somebody throws Stone Cold Steve Austin over the top rope, and when both of his feet hit the floor, he's out of there and somebody's a hundred thousand dollars richer!
JR: And we're going to kick off things with Stone Cold entering #1, Mr. McMahon #2....and there's a serious rivalry between these 2.
King: Without a doubt!
***Video promo plays, hyping the Austin vs McMahon rivalry, and the events that led up to The Royal Rumble. The Cameras eventually pan back to ringside.***
Howard Finkel: Ladies & gentlemen, it is now time for the 1999 Royal Rumble Match. Here are the rules: In just a moment, those individuals who are numbers 1 & 2 will enter the ring and the match will begin. Then, every minute and a half thereafter, another superstar enters the ring according to the number that they drew. Remember, in this contest, it is every man for himself. Elimination occurs when a superstar is thrown over the top rope, and both feet must touch the floor. If an individual is thrown through the ropes and onto the floor, that does not constitute elimination. Again, over the top and onto the floor both feet touching. The winner of this contest will be the last person that is in the ring after all participants have entered and that winner of the match will then meet the World Wrestling Federation Champion at Wrestlemania 15!

***The Corporation celebrates the victory as Mr.McMahon drinks a cold one to insult Stone Cold Steve Austin as the show goes off the air***
Looks like I was able to fit the Royal Rumble PPV into 3 posts after all. I'll see what I can do about RAW. I might be able to get RAW up later this week.
RAW IS WAR
January 25, 1999
Live from the America West Arena in Phoenix, AZ
A video plays, recapping what had happened last night at the Royal Rumble.
It's my life in a box
And charred to beat
Taking chalk in my arms
It's the soul of me
You want fire,
ashes see me laying face down
What has caught the thorn.....IN YOUR EYE!
Introductory Segment: The Corporation cuts a promo
Shane McMahon introduces the winner of last night's Royal Rumble, Vince McMahon. Vince McMahon struts his way to the ring and celebrates his huge victory with The Corporation. Vince says he's going to Wrestlemania. He came, he saw, he kicked Stone Cold's ***! However, he wasn't the only total and absolute victor at the Royal Rumble. There was someone else. Someone who made Mankind say....no....no....someone who made Mankind scream "I quit, I quit"! Give it up for the new WWF Champion. Give it up for The Rock! The crowd boos loudly. Vince says just to show his appreciation, since The Rock personally came down to ringside, right there during the Royal Rumble Match, and he personally saw him throw Stone Cold Steve Austin single-handedly over the top, the $100,000 from Shane McMahon's trust fund is going to go to The Rock in cash. Vince says a well-informed source told him that The Rock didn't get much rest last night. Vince says he knows The Rock was out celebrating all night. Vince addresses the stipulation of the Royal Rumble Match, which states the winner goes on to Wrestlemania to face the WWF Champion. Vince says he's signed some papers which removes him as the #1 contender at Wrestlemania. He waives all rights and privileges as the #1 contender to face The Rock at Wrestlemania. However, he reserves the right at the appropriate time to single-handedly name the person that The Rock will be facing at Wrestlemania. Vince says he told Stone Cold that there was no chance in hell of him winning the Royal Rumble and quite frankly, as far as Vince is concerned, Stone Cold will never ever again step into the ring with the WWF Championship. Vince says Stone Cold has simply run out of chances.
Stone Cold comes on the titantron, calls Vince a jack***, and tells him to look on the screen. Vince asks Stone Cold where he is and Stone Cold says he's in Texas. Vince says that makes sense because he's sure Stone Cold is humiliated. He's sure Stone Cold can't even come out of his house. He's sure people are walking up to him and saying "Aren't you the guy that Vince McMahon threw over the top rope?". Stone Cold says that sounds fine, but he's going to Wrestlemania. Vince assumes Stone Cold means he's going to buy a ticket to go to Wrestlemania. Stone Cold says no and calls Vince a dumb S.O.B. Stone Cold says he's going to Wrestlemania to face the Champion. Right beside Stone Cold is WWF Commissioner, Shawn Michaels. Michaels says he's healing **** well. Michaels says everybody's wondering what ole' Stone Cold is doing in his home. Stone Cold doesn't need protection, but that's what he's going to give him anyway. He's going to protect Stone Cold from Vince and The Corporation, but more importantly, he's protecting Stone Cold Steve Austin from himself....because Vince knows as well as he does that if Steve was in that building tonight, he would open up a can of whoop*** of which the likes have never seen. Michaels says that it's his understanding that Vince filed papers, giving up his rights to go to Wrestlemania against the WWF Champion. He also understands that Vince plans on appointing a replacement to go to Wrestlemania. Michaels says that's not going to happen as long as he is the Commissioner of the World Wrestling Federation. Michaels says both him and Stone Cold have been reading the rules in the WWF rule book, and it says that if the winner of the Royal Rumble either is unable or unwilling to go to Wrestlemania to fight the Champion, then the runner-up gets all rights and privileges. Michaels says last night, when Vince filed those papers, Vince checked himself out of the main event at Wrestlemania, and Stone Cold Steve Austin has been checked in.
Stone Cold says he's sure he scrambled Vince's brains in with the chair last night, but he doesn't want Vince to get too worked up just yet, because he's got a proposition for Vince. What he'll do is this: He would love to have the World Wrestling Federation Title back on his shoulder once again, and that's the bottom line. Stone Cold says he might want to beat the hell out of Vince even more than he does the Title. So to get Vince's *** in the ring, on the next PPV, St. Valentine's Day Massacre, he will put up his rights for the WWF Title shot at Wrestlemania if Vince will face him in a match. If Stone Cold loses the match, he loses the right to face the WWF Champion at Wrestlemania. Vince asks after the humiliation Stone Cold suffered last night, Stone Cold wants some more of him? Stone Cold says at any moment last night, he could have thrown Vince's *** over the top rope. Stone Cold says he made the big mistake, and Rocky brought his square-headed *** out there, and it was a bunch of BS from there. Stone Cold says he screwed up and it ain't going to happen again. Stone Cold says on his best day, Vince can't lace one of his boots. Vince says Stone Cold's got him interested, so go ahead. Stone Cold says it seems to him what Vince does best is run, so the match he is suggesting this to be is a Steel Cage Match. Vince doesn't have to pin him, he ain't gotta make him submit, all he got to do is run around that **** ring long enough, and if he beats Stone Cold out over the top and on the ground, then that means he wins. Stone Cold says if Vince has the guts to do this, then give him a **** answer. Vince discusses this with The Corporate Team for a minute and says Stone Cold's on, he's got his match! Stone Cold says he will guarantee Vince and the world, that he will beat Vince's *** all over that **** cage, he will walk over Vince's limp, bloody carcass, and Stone Cold Steve Austin will walk right into Wrestlemania to face The Rock, and if he can't beat that S.O.B, he should never wrestle in the first place....and that's the bottom line cause Stone Cold said so!

Segment #3: Triple H cuts a promo
DX comes out to the ring as Billy Gunn is set to take on Goldust next. Triple H says he knows what the people wants to hear, but they're not gonna get it tonight, because he's got some business to take care of. Since last night, he's been listening to Rocky in the back run his mouth making people say "I quit". HHH says he doubt The Rock made Mankind say "I quit", and he **** sure knows The Rock can't make him say it. So here's the proposition: HHH and The Rock tonight, right here, in this ring, I Quit Match! HHH says he knows how The Rock thinks, and he's a step ahead of him. HHH tells The Rock to bring the belt because he know The Rock knows the last time they got in the ring, and there was a belt on the line, HHH walked out of MSG 5lbs heavier, carrying The Rock's gold. HHH says he's asking The Rock for just one time, to be a man, put the belt on the line, I Quit Rules for the WWF Title. This is The Rock's chance....no guts, no glory....and if The Rock's not down with that, he's got 2 words for him!
Match #1: Goldust vs Billy Gunn

Goldust staggers back, and is on the receiving end of a Piledriver from Billy Gunn. Billy Gunn hooks the leg. 1...2...3!
Segment #4: Mankind arrives in the building
Mankind is seen entering the America West Arena. What is he doing? He's not scheduled for a match tonight?
Segment #5: The Oddities get set for a match, but get interrupted by The Rock
The Oddities are in the ring, getting set for a match which is about to take place when The Rock's music hits. The Rock and grabs the mic, and says before The Rock checks all 4 of those goofy ***** in the Smackdown Hotel, show some respect for the WWF Champ and hit the road before The Rock lays the Smackdown on all their candy *****. The Rock signals for The Oddities to leave the ring and they leave. The crowd begins to chant "Rocky Sucks!". The Rock tells the crowd they can chant their "Rocky Sucks" all they want, but finally The Great One is the WWF Champ again. Now, first order of business, Triple H: He comes out here, he runs his mouth, and wants to be a big shot. He wants to be like The Rock, but obviously he's not. He comes out here and he makes his little challenges. The Rock says he's got a set of you know what as big as his house and he plans on tonight, going one-on-one with HHH's roody poo candy ***. The Rock says HHH talks about titles and MSG, but first and foremost, HHH never, ever beat The Rock and if it weren't for Chyna kicking The Rock in the People's jewels, HHH would have never won the match. Now what The Rock plans on doing tonight, is taking his big right hand, his WWF Championship, and beat HHH's *** from pillar to post in front of the thousands of Rock's fans here tonight, and in front of the millions, and millions of The Rock's fans watching live. If ya smeeeeeeeell what The Rock is cookin'!
The camera pans back to the parking lot, where Mankind is approaching the armored truck with The Rock's $100,000. Mankind attacks both security guards and steals The Rock's money! The Rock is absolutely livid as Mankind makes his way to the stage!
Mankind's music hits and he comes out on stage to a huge pop from the crowd in Phoenix, AZ. Mankind asks the crowd to give a nice round of applause to The Rock, because he's got Mankind's belt, but while they're at it, give Mankind a round too because he's got The Rock's money. Mankind is giving The Rock's money away to the crowd! Mankind tells The Rock to watch his step and hold it right there. Mankind gives some more money to the crowd, saying it's for piano lessons. Mankind tells The Rock one more step, and he'll throw it all away. Mankind pockets some of The Rock's money for himself and throws more at the crowd. Mankind says he's going to give The Rock credit where it's deserved. After last night's match, Mankind felt like he's been hit in the head with a chair about 11 times, and he guess he have been. He felt like his head has been split wide open, and he guess it has. He felt like he had been **** near electrocuted, and he guess he have been....But he also felt like something was very, very wrong. Mankind says he may have been unconscious, but he does not remember saying the words "I quit", which means either Mankind's completely lost his mind, or he never said those words at all. So what we have is a little bit of a mystery. So what Mankind did is he woke up early, and with the help of a very talented production team, Mankind thinks he has solved the mystery. Mankind directs everyone's attention to the titantron, where Mankind did an interview with Shane McMahon on Sunday Night Heat.
Mankind: You are sadly mistaken you pretentious little twit. You see, Mankind does not whimper, but it will not be I, it will be The Rock, and he'll be screaming the magic words "I quit, I quit, I QUIT"!
Shane McMahon: Thank you very much for those kind words, Mick.
*End of video*
Mankind asks what Shane McMahon meant by "Thank you very much for those kind words, Mick". Mankind addresses the I Quit Match and says no matter what The Rock did, he couldn't get him to say the words "I quit". Mankind directs us to the titantron again, where every time asked Mankind to say "I quit", he wouldn't say it. Mankind says even though he was knocked unconscious, well magically, the 2 words appeared. Mankind directs us once again to the titantron.
The Rock: Mankind, your monkey *** says "I quit"!
Mankind: I quit, I quit, I QUIT!
*End of video*
Mankind asks The Rock if he thinks the people are stupid and also asks if those words sound identical to the words he said on Heat. Mankind says the way he looks at it, The Rock didn't make him say the words. The Rock didn't win the match, and The Rock sure as hell isn't the Champion. Mankind throws some more of The Rock's money at the crowd and warns The Rock that if he takes another step, Mankind's got a real loose hand. Mankind says he's got an idea: The way he sees it, there's going to be an awful lot of bored people. Millions and millions of bored people on Valentine's Day. So what Mankind's saying, what he's asking, what he's demanding is Mankind vs The Rock in a rematch for the WWF Title at St. Valentine's Day Massacre....but it's not just any rematch, because in this match, the both of them are simply going to beat the living hell out of each other until only one man is left standing. At St. Valentine's Day Massacre, it will be Mankind vs The Rock in a Last Man Standing Match! Mankind tells The Rock to make up his mind and make it up real quick. Mankind says he'll give The Rock his money back, but he thinks it's going to be a couple of dollars short because Mr. Socko is going to go on a little spending spree. The Rock tells Mankind he's got his shot! Mankind says he'll see The Rock's *** at St. Valentine's Day Massacre and tells The Rock to have a nice day! Has The Rock let his ego get away from him again?

I promise you, Stone Cold Steve Austin will be annihilated. He'll be massacred. He'll be in worse shape than Gangrel is in right now if that's possible!
Segment #10: Mankind cuts a promo
Mankind comes down to the ring to a huge ovation from the crowd.
JR: What an ovation for this man, Mankind. As we heard last week, Mankind issued a challenge for the Rock in 2 weeks at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre PPV.
King: I'm just going to tell you something: The Rock isn't going to take this lying down, because at the Royal Rumble, Rock made Mankind scream "I quit"! The Rock's once again the champion, but Mankind stole The Rock's money and used it as a bargaining chip for a title shot!
JR: It was a **** tape recording. Mankind never said "I quit", King!
Mankind: Thank you very much. To tell you the truth, after that I Quit Match at the Royal Rumble, I don't feel all that good. I probably don't look all that good, but last time I checked, I sure as hell never said the words, "I quit". So you see....
***Do you smell what The Rock is cookin'? The Rock's music hits and he comes out on stage as he gets showered with boos from the crowd as they chant "Rocky sucks".***
The Rock: Now I tell you what, Mankind. You come out here and you run your mouth. You talk like a big shot, like you're The Rock, but obviously you're not. Now, after the I Quit Match in which The Rock beat your roody poo candy *** all across the arena....when it was all said and done, and the thousands, and thousands of The Rock's fans were done chanting his name, you screamed "I quit" not once, not twice, but 3 times. So now, after the I Quit Match-up, you want another shot at The Great One? Now, although The Rock stands up here custom made from head to toe, he dresses like a million dollars, he makes millions of dollars. Not only is The Rock extremely articulate, but he is pretty **** good looking on top of all that. After the 2 past weeks, you realize that now Mankind....that The Rock is all those things, including the most electrifying man in sports entertainment today. Now you look at The Rock when The Rock is speaking to you. On top of all that, The Rock agreed to your matches. Now you have something that belongs to The Rock and it happens to be $100,000. So Mankind, bring The Rock his $100,000 before The Rock whips your monkey ***.
Mankind: Hey, hold on a second now Rock, because you see, I feel a little bad about that. First off, there's no longer $100,000. It's down to about $72,000. Secondly, I consider myself an honorable man and I did say if you gave me a title match, I'd return the cash, but I changed my mind! Just to show you though that I'm a truthful guy, I'm just going to agree with everything you said. You do dress like a million bucks, you do make millions of bucks, why you even look pretty **** good too. But it is my humble opinion that you are without a doubt, the biggest horse's *** in sports entertainment today! Now Rock, I will admit you have given Mankind some of the ******* matches I've ever had, and now we're about to have another one in just 2 weeks, Rock.
The Rock: Now you make your little challenges and The Rock accepted. In about 2 short weeks, if you thought The Rock was rough on your candy *** in the I Quit Match, then come St. Valentine's Day Massacre, The Rock will proceed to bash your living brains in like you ain't never felt before. Mankind, in 2 weeks when it's all said and done, and the millions, and millions of The Rocks are through chanting his name, and The Rock stands over you still the WWF Champ, you're gonna realize why The Rock is The Great One, why The Rock is the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, and why The Rock is without a shadow of a doubt, the best **** WWF Champ there ever was. If you smeeeeeeeell what The Rock is cookin'!
JR: Folks, in 2 weeks at St. Valentine's Day Massacre on PPV....Last Man Standing....Rock vs Mankind for the WWF Title! Oh wait, they're at a pawn shop. Mr. McMahon has found Austin in a pawn shop!
King: Good! I guess we're fixin' to see Stone Cold Steve Austin attack Mr. McMahon and get fired on the spot, haha!

JR: Hey, wait a **** minute! The druids are The Brood!
King: But The Ministry Of Darkness destroyed these guys earlier tonight! What is happening?
JR: Well, perhaps it was a ritual. Maybe a way for them to prove themselves to The Undertaker! Has this been a part of a long drawn-out initiation?
King: I'll tell you something: now there's going to be a real massacre on St. Valentine's Day. Now I know it!

It's eating you up inside, you know **** well it is! C'mon, stand up! Yeah, c'mon. C'mon Austin. What's the matter, huh? C'mon you chicken***, c'mon! Stand up! Hit me!

***The lights go out. Kane's music plays, his pyro explodes on cue as Kane makes his way down to the ring.***
JR: Through hellfire and brimstone Kane walks. Perhaps the most destructive force in the WWF today. Last week King, X-Pac offered Kane a chance to join a real family, DX. Kane responded with a thunderous Chokeslam on X-Pac, and rejoined The Corporation. Kane must think being part of The Corporation is better than the threat of being sent back to the insane asylum.
King: Well, I'll tell ya what was great last week: Shane took Kane right down to his knees. Not one knee, but both knees. It was so great to see. Kane get down on both his knees and apologize. It just goes to show how much power The Corporation holds here in the World Wrestling Federation, so you better mind your P's & Q's, JR!
Triple H wastes no time in going after Kane. Triple H dodges a clothesline from Kane and delivers a flurry of rights at Kane. It takes a while, but Kane eventually is brought down to one knee. Triple H rebounds off the ropes for the attack, but Kane grabs him by the throat and throws him into the steel cage. What a show of power by Kane there!

HHH tries to fight back, but Kane delivers a knee to the midsection. Kane suplexes HHH. Kane goes for an elbow drop, but HHH moves out of the way and Kane sits right back up. Both men get back to their feet, Triple H scores with some punches, and tries to throw Kane into the steel cage. Kane blocks it with his foot, and sends Triple H face first into the steel cage. Kane lifts his arms up, and then signals them down much like he does before the match to set the pyro off in the corner. His pyro goes off and the lights dim to a dark red. Kane rakes the face of HHH across the mesh of the steel cage. The lighting in the arena eventually goes back to normal. Kane picks Triple H up in a bear hug and rams his back into the steel cage. Triple H begins to battle back, but Kane turns the tide once more with an uppercut. Triple H crawls towards the door, but Kane is there to drag him back to the middle of the ring. HHH battles back again, this time with a knee to the solar plexus, and whipping Kane into the steel cage 3 times. Triple H goes for the door again, but Kane is there to grab him by the leg. Kane does an elbow drop in HHH's leg. Kane goes to the top turnbuckle and with tremendous agility, hits his diving clothesline on HHH.

HHH goes to whip Kane in the other corner, who reverses it and charges at Triple H. HHH counters with a boot to the face. HHH runs at Kane but gets decked with a clothesline. Kane tries to climb up the cage. HHH tries to stop him, but Kane kicks him away. HHH tries a second time and is successful this time around, yanking Kane off the cage and sending him crashing to the mat below. Again Kane sits up, and now Triple H tries to make it out of the cage by climbing up the side. Triple H is near the top, but Kane grabs him. Triple H kicks Kane back down. Triple H is almost over the top when Kane grabs him by the throat. Kane is going to Chokeslam Triple H from the top rope! Triple H scores with a low blow, saving himself from disaster as Kane straddles the top rope. Triple H rams Kane's head into the steel cage 3 times. Kane gets back up between the ropes and the steel cage, but Triple H rebounds off the ropes and hits him with a high-knee. Triple H measures Kane. Triple H hooks the arms and sets Kane up for the Pedigree. Kane counters with a back body drop, sending Triple H into the steel cage. Kane measures Triple H and grabs him by the throat. Triple H is going for the ride. Chokeslam! Kane is going to walk through the door, but then X-Pac runs down to the ring and slams the door twice into Kane's head. Kane sits back up and this time tries climbing out over the side of the steel cage. X-Pac climbs the steel cage and intercepts Kane at the top. Triple H is now climbing the steel cage as well. Shane McMahon runs down the aisle and into the steel cage. Shane grabs Triple H, but he kicks Shane off. Triple H climbs out over the top and lands on the floor. Triple H wins!
JR: Triple H wins! Bah Gawd Triple H beat Kane! And Shane is furious!
King: I'm gonna tell you one thing: That X-Pac is gonna pay for this. Shane McMahon will make X-Pac pay!
JR: X-Pac with a ton of guts, Triple H with revenge. Kane and the boy wonder, Shane left reeling.
Kane goes up the ramp after Triple H and X-Pac, but Shane stops him.
Shane McMahon: Kane, stop. Hold it right there, Kane. Let them have their little moment. You two listen to me: This isn't over yet! No, no. It's gonna be long, and it's gonna be painful for DX. 2 weeks at St. Valentine's Day Massacre....I'm issuing a challenge. The 2 of you vs myself & Kane! It's on! Oh, yeah boy! It's on!
King: What does that mean?
JR: MY GAWD, Triple H & X-Pac vs Shane McMahon & Kane! What's gonna happen between then? Goodnight everyone!

***Video plays hyping The Rock vs Mankind in a Last Man Standing Match at St. Valentine's Day Massacre for the WWF Title. Once the video ends, the pyro explodes and the camera cuts to the arena to kick off the show***
Kevin Kelly: In 7 days time, who will be the last man standing when The Rock defends the WWF Title against Mankind? Also next Sunday at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, Stone Cold Steve Austin enters the steel cage against this gentleman, Mr. McMahon!
Introductory Segment: Vince & Shane McMahon cut a promo
Shane & Vince McMahon, accompanied by Gerald Brisco & Pat Patterson come down to the ring receiving momentous heat.
Vince McMahon: St. Valentine's Day Massacre 1 week from tonight....and on St. Valentine's Day, my son, Shane will step into the ring. However, I hope this doesn't upset DX....because you know I'm a very fair human being. So therefore it would be unfair to see X-Pac go one-on-one with my son, Shane. It wouldn't be fair at all. Because let's face it, you would totally annihilate and humiliate X-Pac like he's never been humiliated before! So therefore in the interest of fairness, that's why my son, Shane has decided to make this match next Sunday, a tag team match. So Triple H & X-Pac will square off against my son, Shane and his tag team partner....Kane! Well, if you want to talk about a massacre, there are going to be a number of them 1 week from tonight. On St. Valentine's Day, what a massacre it's gonna be: The Last Man Standing Match. The Rock going one-on-one with Mankind for the WWF Championship. But let's think about how this match came about, because quite frankly Mankind is nothing more than a thief. You see, at the Royal Rumble, The Rock annihilated Mankind. He could have finished him off there, and then Mankind steals $100,000 in cash from my son's trust fund. That was a gift to The Rock! Holds it over his head, blackmails Rock! Blackmailed heem to a match! Hadn't it been for that, Mankind wouldn't have gotten a title match as we speak. Nonetheless, I'm confident that 1 week from tonight, The Rock will remain the WWF Champion and indeed Mankind in all likelihood, you'll never wrestle again. As a matter, I predict that you'll be massacred and butchered so bad by The Rock, you may never even walk again. And then that would bring us to Stone Cold Steve Austin. A lot of people think Austin showed restraint when he walked away from me. Ha, no, no, that wasn't restraint, but it was cold. It was Stone Cold fear. Now Austin, you may not necessarily be afraid of me, but you are afraid of defeat. You are afraid of history repeating itself because it just eats you alive that me, Vince McMahon took you and threw you over the top rope single-handedly and became the winner of the Royal Rumble. So Austin, you go ahead and put up that #1 spot of contension at Wrestlemania, because you know I have a plan.
You know I have a fool-proof plan. You don't know how, all you know is that Vince McMahon is going to defeat you 1 week from tonight. And indeed Austin, your career will be massacred. After it's all said and done, there you are left inside that steel cage, Vince McMahon is on the outside, who knows what a heaping mass of chili you're gonna turn into once again Vince McMahon defeats Stone Cold. Just to make sure you're ready for the match Austin, I tell you what I'm gonna do: You and Mankind deserve each other, no doubt about that. So therefore, we should book a little warmup match tomorrow night. One-on-one....Mankind vs Stone Cold Steve Austin. Good luck, Austin. Good luck, Mankind. And by the way, to both Mankind as well as Stone Cold, from the bottom of my heart, Happy Valentine's Day. I thank you very much.
Kevin Kelly: And not a hint of sarcasm in his voice either. A heartfelt greeting from Mr. McMahon to Stone Cold and Mankind. He orders for them to meet each other tomorrow night on RAW, 6 days away from St. Valentine's Day Massacre. They could massacre each other tomorrow night! Well, it's apparent Mr. McMahon has designed to not only impact not only St. Valentine's Day Massacre next Sunday, but potentially also Wrestlemania by ordering Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mankind to meet tomorrow night on RAW. What a blockbuster announcement to kick off the hour!
Shane McMahon: What did you expect from Vinny Mac? My Pops is the man! He takes things into his own hands and gets the job done!

Segment #1: Michael Cole interviews Al Snow
Michael Cole: Al Snow, Big Bossman's the Hardcore Champion, you and Road Dogg are looking to challenge him for the title. You 2 have done all kinds of things. You've went through tables, chair shots, anything imaginable. What are you going to do to prove that you're truly hardcore?
Al Snow: What am I gonna do? What am I gonna do? What am I gonna do? I don't know. I might break a broom over his head *Al Snow breaks a broom over his head*. I might stick him in a trash can *Al Snow puts a trash can over his head and runs face first into the trailer of the production truck*. I might hit him with a chair *Al Snow hits himself in the head with a chair*. Maybe throw him into the concession stands *Al Snow ransacks the concession stand*. Or maybe I'll spray him with a fire extinguisher *Al Snow sprays himself with a fire extinguisher*. If that doesn't work and he's still coming, I'll find a table and put him through it *Al Snow puts himself through a table*. It doesn't matter what I do though. The only thing I will do though, is I'm gonna take that belt from Bossman and I'll make Road Dogg pay for turning on me. You both want to play the game? You both want to try to be Hardcore? You think you're Hardcore? I don't think so!
Shane McMahon: Al Snow is off his rocker. He has lost it. Al Snow's obsessed with the Hardcore Title!
