This fued really started during a transition period for X-Pac. He was fresh off his "friendly fued" with Road Dogg and was
trying to make a name for himself as one of the WWF's top heels. Most of the matches took place on the house show circuit and they
were always for the Hardcore Title that Blackman held. They brought the fued to TV on September 11, 2000 when Blackman defended his title
against X-Pac. Needless to say, Chris Jericho got involved to further their fued that was just starting to heat up.
