Hulk Hogan (1986) vs. Steve Austin (1998) II
When TIME collides II
Mean Gene: Hi everyone, Gene Okerlund here. Everyone was shocked when "Stone Cold" Steve Austin of the famed WWF Attitude defeated Hulk Hogan for his WWF Title, about two months ago. We also saw WWF Attitude's Rocky Maivia defeat "Macho Man" Randy Savage in a totally unfair manner, in my book. Also, the British Bulldogs defeated DX to unify the Tag Titles. Now, its payback time of sorts as Hulk Hogan will take on Steve Austin inside the confines on a Special 30 foot high "Thunder Cage" nicknamed by WWF Attitude as "A Hell in a Cell."
The World Wrestling Federation and Hulkamania along with WWF Attitude proudly presents When TIME collides II!
Match One: Paul Orndorff (1986) vs. Owen Hart (1998)
Orndorff comes to the ring with Bobby Hennan, while Owen comes out with Mark Henry. This would be a classic match-up. Orndorff would attack Owen before the bell, and start to kick Owen's head and upper body. Paul would start to punch on Owen's head but Owen would roll over and start punching Paul's head. Paul would exit outside and regroup with Bobby. Paul reenters the ring, but Owen dropkicks Orndorff and outside goes Paul again. It doesn't seem like Orndorff can get the upper hand at all.
Orndorff renters the ring. Finally, they both lock up and Orndorff grabs Owen into a headlock. Owen breaks out of it, throws Paul in the ropes Shoulder Block. Paul again runs outside the ring, but is thrown back into the ring by Mark Henry. Heenan complains to the ref, but to no avail as Owen places Orndorff into the Sharpshooter.
From out of nowhere, King Kong Bundy enters the scene. WHAM! Bundy has thrown Owen off of Paul, but here comes Mark Henry who belly to belly suplexes the big Bundy. Bundy rolls out of the ring, but Orndorff has a steel chair and he feeds it to both Owen and Mark Henry. As the ref turns back around, Orndorff places the Piledriver on Owen. 1-2 The Rock and Kama roll in for the save! As Maivia beats on Orndorff the Ref DQs Owen. The fans have a mixed Roar as Big John Studd comes down the aisle to help the Heenan Family. Studd slams Mark Henry, and proceeds to beat the living tar out of "The Rock." The Nation escapes the ring, as Bobby Hennan screams at them!
WINNER: Paul Orndorff by DQ [WWF Hulkamania]
MATCH 2: Ken Shamrock (1998) vs. Ted Arcidi (1986)
Anyone remember Ted Arcidi? This muscleman had little to no heat but was also misused by the WWF. Sure Ted was no wrestler, he was a bodybuilder who unlike Hulk Hogan, only knew how to spit and drool and scream "Arrrgh!" Still, I think he could still prove to be a challenge for Shamrock, who is a madman!
The match begins with Arcidi attacking the back of Shamrock! Arcidi would deliver several Irish Whips to Shamrock thus making Shamrock very dizzy. Arcidi would underestimate Shamrock on a clothesline attempt, thus being on the receiving end of a spear by Shamrock. Shamrock would then pound on the head and ears of Arcidi until Arcidi's face was nothing but blood. Shamrock would be nuts and the ref would have to stop the bout and get guards to contain the mad monster. Of course, Shamrock does win by Ref. stopping the match.
WINNER: Ken Shamrock when Ref stops the match! [WWF Attitude]
MATCH 3: Hillbilly Jim/Uncle Elmer/Cousin Junior (1986) vs. Southern Justice/Jeff Jarrett (1998)
One word, boring! However, we do need a match against the old Hillbilly Clan and the new, don't we? Still, it would be funny if HOG and PIG had to resort back to their old Hillbilly roots to defeat these monsters! I see a win by Uncle Elmer splashing on PIG's chest!
WINNER: Hillbilly Jim/Uncle Elmer/Cousin Junior by pinfall. [WWF
MATCH 4: The Truth Commission [What are they called now?] (1998)
vs. Nickoli Volkov/Iron Sheik (1986)
The newly turned Truth Commission would be no match for the evil Russian and the evil Iranian! This match would be over in just a matter of minutes.
WINNER: Nickoli Volkov/Iron Sheik by pinfall. [WWF Hulkamania]
MATCH 5: WWF Intercontinal Championship Match: Rocky Maivia (1998)
vs. Tito Santana (1986)
"Remember Chicko Santana loves to cheat!"
Classic match-up against the Rock and Tito. Rock would control the early minutes of the match-up. However, the Rock would get the advantage with a clothesline! Now the Rock does his usual stuff he lands a perfect People's Elbow goes for a cover 1-2- KICKOUT! Rock goes for a chinlock, but to no avail as Tito powers out of it. Elbow to the gut, elbow to the gut shoulder block by Tito and THE FLYING FOREARM!
Wait a minute, where's the ref?? The ref has been knocked out, who could have done this? Here comes Macho Man' Randy Savage into the ring with a steel chair. HE HITS ROCKY IN THE HEAD WITH THE CHAIR HE HITS TITO IN THE HEAD AS WELL! What is Savage doing, he is throwing The Rock on top of Santana!
Instant replay shows Savage pulling the ref out of the ring and swamping him with a chair! Its Chaos as WWF Commish Slaughter and President Jack Tunney come out to ringside and declare the match a NO CONTEST.
WINNERS: Match Ruled NO CONTEST! Rocky Maivia remains WWF Intercontinal
Champion! [WWF ATTITUDE]
MATCH 6: Mark Mero (1998) vs. The Junk Yard Dog (1986)
Mark Mero comes to the ring with Jackie, the Dog comes to the ring with his bone and his THUMP! The two lock up, and Mero cleverly slips away and gut shots the Dog, the Dog is down! Mero going for a punch, oh wait the Dog is up on one knee and got fire in his eyes. The Dog stands up, HEADBUTT DOWN GOES MERO! JYD gets on all fours DOGBUTT! DOGBUTT! DOGBUTT! Mero is outside being consoled by Miss Jackie as the Dog barks!
Mero re-enters the ring and locks up again! Knee to the gut by Mero. Beautiful kneelift, the dog falls down! Elbow drop by Mero into the Dog's Throat! The dog is choking gasping for air. Mero goes up to the top rope. . . .the MEROSAULT! ONE TWO THRE no the Dog kicks out! UH OH! The Dog is wild eyed!
PUNCH! No effect, the Dog is doing his own "Hulking Up!" Mero tries again for a punch no effect! Another attempt, no the Dog throws a punch! Mero is down! The dog grabs Mero back up again and with a mighty thrust HEADBUTT! ONE TWO KICKOUT!
Wait a minute, what is Jackie doing? She has a steel chair Mero has the refs attention Jackie strikes the JYD with the CHAIR! NO EFFECT! The Dog grabs Jackie and kisses her! The Dog turns around kick by Mero Mero grabs the Dog and sets him up for the TKO wait a minute here comes Sable down to ringside Mero accomplishes the TKO and the Dog is dead [Out cold dead that is. . . .] Mero is about to win this match but all of a sudden he sees Sable he looks up in shock! Mero starts to rant and rave and scream Jackie goes over to take care of Sable but it does Mark Mero no good as the Dog grabs the tights of Mero and ONE TWO THREE scores the pinfall victory.
After the match, Jackie tries to thwart Sable but the Dog saves the day. We see the end of this match with Jackie and Mark running out of the arena as Sable and the JYD dance to the JunkYard Thump "Another One Bites the Dust!"
WINNER: The Junk-Yard Dog [WWF Hulkamania!]
MATCH 7: King Kong Bundy/Big John Studd vs. Mark Henry/Kama
As result of the Orndorff/Hart match, both factions of the WWF booked an instant Bundy/Studd vs. Henry/Kama.
This would of been a classic. Studd locks up with Kama quick knee to the gut, and a quick body slam by Studd! The fans are cheering for the Hennan Family! Studd lands an ELBOW 1-2-KICKOUT!
Studd tags in to Bundy! Bundy throws Kama into the Turnbuckle Avalanche! - BIG SPLASH! 1-2- Mark Henry tries to make the save goes for the Splash BUNDY GOT UP AND HENRY HAS SPLASHED KAMA!
Wait a minute! Henry stands up the Hennan family is in trouble now! NO WAIT A MINUTE HENRY HAS SPLASHED KAMA AGAIN! Henry is picking Kama up BACKBREAKER! Sets him up for Bundy who goes for a SPLASH! Mark Henry has joined the Hennan Family MY GOD!
The Rock, Owen, and D. Lo rush down to the ring but it is too late the damage has been done! MARK HENRY HAS JOINED WWF Hulkamania's Heenan Family!
WINNERS: NO CONTEST!
After the match, Mean Gene tries to figure out why Henry joined the Hennan family:
Henry: What is the Nation? The Nation is full of a bunch of fools! I want to be part of a winners group and that group has got to be the Bobby Hennan Family!
MATCH 8: HELL IN A CELL FOR THE WWF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Hulk Hogan (1986) vs. Steve Austin (1998)
