January 1st 1998 (12:00 am)

The New Year ticked in down at WWF headquarters and Vince sat in his chair, head in hands. WCW couldn’t be toppled from the mountain. Was the new “Attitude” era really the right thing to do? Vince looked over some paper work when there was a knock at the door.

“Come in”

Matthew Brown, a booking team member walks through the door.

“You wanted to see me, Vince?”

“Yes sit down, sit down. Matt be blunt with me, is this Attitude Era a mistake?”

“WHOA, is that Vince McMahon doubting himself? Vince the ratings are up and the show is just so good. Your doing great, hey, I’ve disagreed with a few of your moves, but on the hole everything’s looking good.”

“Then why aren’t we beating WCW in the ratings, Ted Turners trying to run me out of business Matt!”

“Of course he is but trust me, they have the star power now but they aren’t building on it. Vince, if you so worried let me be head booker and I guarantee we will drive WCW out of business.”

“WCW out of business? You’re crazy but that’s why I called you here. I want you to become our new head booker. I’m of course, going to have final say on everything but I want you to make the ideas. You and me think alike Matt and I need someone else to help me here.”

“Vince, that how it is now! Me and you running the whole book.”

“No. I want to officially make you head booker and YOU will do all the work and you will run it by me.”

“HA, making me earn my pay? Vince I’m disappointed!”

“HAHA, Matt I promise you a hefty pay rise and a huge say in what goes on here. What do you say?”

“Where do I sign?”

Matt and Vince shake hands and the WWF’s future is in new hands, sort of.

The opening credits end and a hype video for the Royal Rumble is played. After the video ends the cameras focus in on our commentary team: Kevin Kelly and Michael Cole.

Cole “Welcome everybody to WWF Superstars. We’re just over a week away from the Royal Rumble and what a night it’s promising to be.”

Kelly “Your right there Cole, I mean along with Owen Vs HBK, Undertaker Vs Mankind and all the other great matches, we have the royal rumble it self.”

Cole “I love the rumble and Mr McMahon had a special announcement regarding the Rumble this past Monday night on RAW.”

Video Clip – RAW Rebound

“Ladies and Gentlemen we are less than 2 weeks away from the ROYAL RUMBLE. And as ever the main event will be a 30 man royal rumble to determine the number 1 contender to the WWF Championship and a chance to go and fight for it at Wrestlemania. However in the interest of entertainment we will not be announcing the entry order. I do guarantee you however that all your favourites will be in and it will be a totally random draw. However there is one exception and that is the number 30 spot.  Next week two randomly chosen participants will fight it out for this last spot in the rumble.”

This week in our main event Owen Hart teams with Steve Austin and Steve Blackman to take on Rocky Maivia, Shawn Michaels and Triple H. Which team can harness the momentum for the Royal Rumble?

Also tonight Mankind takes on Ken Shamrock. With Mankind’s mental state and Shamrock’s short fuse who knows what will happen.

Dilo Brown and Kama Mustafa will also team to take on The Headbangers. Following Superstars on Saturday, will these two be able to keep it together for The Nation?

Also, two randomly chosen superstars will fight it out for the number 30 spot in the Rumble. Which lucky two will it be?

The New Age Outlaws will surely have something to say about their title defence to The Legion Of Doom.

It’s the last Raw before the Royal Rumble so make sure you tune in this Monday.

Confirmed Matches

Number 30 Match: ??? Vs ???

Dilo Brown and Kama Mustafa Vs The Headbangers

Ken Shamrock Vs Mankind

Other than the travesty of TAKA, this is shaping up to be pretty good. It's just a pity you changed the Blackman/Triple H match - I like Blackman, and a Cage match between him and Trips would have drawn mass mark-outage back in the day.

Pyrotechnics go off and the camera pans to the ring and shows a lottery machine and then we are taken to Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler sitting at their commentary position.

Jim Ross “Welcome ladies and gentlemen to the last Monday Night RAW before the Royal Rumble. We have a great main event for you tonight, the team of Owen Hart, Steve Austin and Steve Blackman will take on The Nation’s Rocky Maivia and DX’s Shawn Michaels and Triple H.”

Jerry Lawler “This match is huge JR. Which ever team wins will have such great momentum going into the Royal Rumble and all 6 men have huge matches against each other. And of course 4 of them will be in the Royal Rumble too.”

Jim Ross “And we mustn’t forget the huge 30 entrant match either.”

Vince McMahon’s music plays and he appears from the back.


Jerry Lawler “What does McMahon want?”

Jim Ross “I would imagine it has something to do with the number 30 Entrant Match tonight.”

Vince enters the ring and is handed a microphone from the ring announcer.

“I’m here simply to draw the two men who will participate in the Number 30 Entrant match. So lets get down to business because that match will be next.”

Sunday 16th January – Oklahoma

<The show opens with a video playing the highlights of the feud between Owen Hart and Shawn Michaels.>

Jim Ross “Welcome everybody to the Royal Rumble! I’m J.R alongside Jerry “The King” Lawler and what a night we have in store King.”

Jerry Lawler “Well J.R I wasn’t too happy with the reception I got from your hometown fans, but your right, tonight we have some incredible matches to settle some big scores!”

Jim Ross “Least of all the World Heavyweight Championship match.”

Jerry Lawler “That right J.R. Shawn drove Bret Hart out of this federation and Owen wants revenge.”

Jim Ross “And of course there’s the Royal Rumble. 30 men and only 1 man can fulfil his dream and go on to Wrestlemania.”

Jerry Lawler “And J.R talking of Rumble’s it’s time for “The King” to teach some manners.”

Jerry Lawler Vs TAKA Michinoku (If TAKA wins the “The King” will never wrestle again, if “The King” wins then TAKA vacates his Light Heavyweight Title.)

<Jerry Lawler makes his way to the ring first from his commentary position. He walks into the ring and waits. TAKA’s music plays and he comes running out to the ring.>

TAKA takes the early initiative and pummels “The King”. Eventually King pokes TAKA in the eye and hits a nice suplex. Now King is pummelling TAKA and backs him up into a corner. King misses with a splash and TAKA rolls him up for a near fall. TAKA now hits some of his highflying moves and keeps things going at a quicker pace. TAKA nails a hurricanarana for a near fall. At this point Brian Christopher comes down to the ring and distracts both the referee and TAKA. King takes advantage and nails a low blow and covers for a very near fall. King bounces TAKA off the ropes and TAKA ducks King’s clothesline and suicide dives to the outside and hits Christopher. King has the referee’s attention as both Christopher and TAKA struggle to their feet on the outside. TAKA goes to throw Christopher into the steel steps but he reverses and sends TAKA crashing into the steel steps. Christopher throws TAKA back in and “The King” nails the Piledriver for the win.

Winner: Jerry “The King” Lawler

<King and Christopher celebrate in the ring .>

Austin Is Here

<The cameras switch to the back and show Stone Cold pulling up in a monster truck tattooed with Austin catchphrases.>

Jim Ross “The rattlesnake is here and he’s just one of 30 men who could fulfil their dreams tonight!”

DX is your solution

<The cameras go the back and show Shawn Michaels and Triple H talking.>

Triple H “Shawn look I’m not happy about this. Blackman is unpredictable and I have to face him in a steel cage! Man this is screwed up. McMahon’s screwing me over!”

HBK “Hey Hunter listen, I know how you feel McMahon screwing me, hell he’s screwing DX over ever since we came to the dance. DX should have the power but McMahon has it all. But as for your match tonight, damn it Hunter Blackman’s nothing to you, you’re the “King Of The Ring” baby.”

Triple H “That doesn’t count for nothing in a steel cage.”

Shawn Michaels “Like hell it don’t, Hunter do you remember what you did to Mankind to win that final? You Pedigreed him through a table and that was in a match with disqualifications, imagine what will happen in a steel change where anything goes. Use the steel cage as your partner and let your wicked side, kick in. I know you will do it for DX Hunter.”

Triple H “You know Shawn your right, Damn it I’m Triple H. What about McMahon though? I’m sick and tired of him telling us what to do.”

Shawn Michaels “Starting tomorrow tonight DX is recruiting baby.”

D’lo Brown Vs Kama Mustafa (Special Referee: Rocky Maivia)

<The Nation’s theme music plays and all three men walk out together: Rocky in his referee shirt.  D’lo and Kama look hesitant but Rocky is ushering them forward.>

Rocky forces both men to shake hands before the match and they reluctantly agree. D’lo starts off the offensive with some brawling. D’lo hits a suplex and covers for a 2 count. Kama comes back into it now and wins the fistfight with D’lo. He pushes D’lo into the corner and chokes him. Rocky issues a 5 count and Kama refuses to break the hold. Rocky finally drags Kama away and begins to tell him off. D’lo quickly goes behind Kama and rolls him up for a near fall. Kama gets up and nails D’lo with a clothesline and begins to argue with Rocky. D’lo nails Kama from behind and hits a back suplex for a near fall.

<Steve Austin’s music plays and he runs out to the ring.>

Austin pummels all three members of The Nation, knocking D’lo and Kama outside and then hits a stunner for good measure on Rocky.

<Austin calls for some beers and begins to salute the crowd.>

Jim Ross “The rattlesnake struck The Nation when it was vulnerable.”

Jerry Lawler “The Nation still has problems to sort out J.R.”

Result: No Contest

An Interview With The Outlaws

<The action switches to the back and Michael Cole standing by with The New Age Outlaws.>

Michael Cole “Tonight Road Dogg and Billy Gunn, you defend you titles against one of the greatest tag teams in WWF history. How confident are you especially considering they 2 weeks ago on RAW?”

Road Dogg “First of Cole, they cheated to beat us. Second of all they are not all the great, I mean did you see what they did this past Monday night.”

Billy Gunn “These guys bring a whole new meaning to the term “Road Warriors”!”

Road Dogg “They don’t stand a chance against The Outlaws, we’re younger, we’re better looking, we don’t collect our pensions and we just plain better. TELL UM GUNN!”


WWF Tag Team Championship: Legion of Doom Vs The New Age Outlaws ©

<LOD’s music plays and LOD appear from the back with their customary spikes. They enter the ring take off the spikes and are ready for action. Next the champions music plays and The Outlaws make their way to the ring as soon as they enter LOD begin.>

Animal and Hawk clear house and pose to the crowd. Road Dogg comes back in and is dominated by Hawk. Hawk pounds Road Dogg for a bit and hits a few nice slams. Road Dogg reverses an Irish whip and Billy Gunn kicks Hawk in the kidneys sending him down. Road Dogg tags out and Billy Gunn comes in. Gunn beats on Hawk with some hard offence and tags back out to Road Dogg who continues the assault. Hawk manages to reverse a Road Dogg suplex and tags in Animal. However Billy Gunn had the referee distracted and sends Animal back outside. Road Dogg drags Hawk back into the Outlaw corner and tags in Billy. Billy dominates Hawk some more before tagging Road Dogg back in. They go for a double clothesline but Hawk ducks under and hits one of his own on the rebound. Hawk gets the hot tag to Animal and Animal goes crazy beating the hell out of Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. Hawk recovers to take Billy Gunn to the outside with a clothesline over the top rope. He follows him outside and hits a suplex. Animal has Road Dogg up on his shoulders and Hawk now climbs to the top rope. LOD hit the Doomsday Device for the win.

<LOD celebrate in the ring with the belts.>

Winners and new WWF Tag Team Champions: Legion Of Doom

The Showstoppa

<Michael Cole is in the back with Shawn Michaels.>

Michael Cole “Shawn, Owen seems to have your number as of late. Are you worried this motivated Owen will take your title tonight?”

HBK “WHAT!? Are you serious? Let me tell you something Michael, I’m H.B.K. I have already beat one member of the Hart family: the more talented one and made him flee the WWF, why in the hell would his younger crappyier brother bother the showstoppa? Owen listen to me boy: I don’t care how many family members I have to go through. The Hart family means nothing to the Showstoppa. I mean it getting a little ridiculous though I admit. Every week there seems to be a new Hart. Who next? Momma Hart? Grand Papa Hart? How about Great Cousin Dufus: who just so happens to be your niece too. Don’t ask Cole! Cole, you see this title on my shoulder: it signifies I’m the best. And Cole you know I’m the best. And tonight Owen Hart will find out the meaning of Sweet Chin Music.”

<HBK walks off.>

WWF European Championship Match, Steel Cage: Steve Blackman Vs Triple H ©

<The cage is lowered around the ring.>

Jim Ross “This should be a war zone “King” I can’t see Triple H surviving Blackman one on one with no help.”

Jerry Lawler “Oh ye of little faith! Triple H is the “King Of The Ring” and no doubt he can do it alone.”

<Steve Blackman’s music plays and he makes his way to the ring. He looks at the cage for a while. The referee opens the door for him and he enters. DX’s music plays and Triple H comes out alone. He spits some water out his mouth and does the “suck it” sign as fireworks go off behind him. He walks cautiously to the ring and looks at the cage and Blackman. He enters.>

The Match starts with a tie up and Blackman throwing Triple H to the floor. Blackman uses his marital arts background to control the early going. Triple H in desperation throws Blackman head first into the cage. Triple H brawls for a while and pounds on Blackman. Blackman hits back with a stiff roundhouse kick to the face. Blackman picks Triple H up and hits a big DDT. Blackman begins to climb slowly but Triple H catches him right at the top. Triple H back pummels Blackman in the ribs until he falls off. Blackman grabs Triple H on the way down and pulls him down. Triple H now controls brawling and using the cage as a weapon. He tries to escape through the door but Blackman drags him back in. Blackman now dominates using some martial arts and the cage as a weapon. Blackman busts Triple H open by throwing him catapulting him face first into the steel. Blackman picks Triple H up and Triple H hits the low blow and then the pedigree. He covers for the three.


Jerry Lawler “Triple H did it! Triple H retains! Triple H retains!”

Jim Ross “Well I’m be damned. I didn’t give Triple H a chance but damn he proved me wrong tonight. He went to hell and back and he did it alone!”

Jerry Lawler “I told you J.R Triple H is the next big star here in the WWF.”

Winner and still WWF European Champion: Triple H

Owen Is Ready

<Owen Hart is shown warming up backstage.>

Jim Ross “Tonight is Owen’s big night. Can he defeat Shawn Michaels and finally claim the elusive WWF Championship?”

Mankind Vs The Undertaker

< Mankind’s music plays and the lights dim as he appears from the back. Undertaker wastes no time and assaults Mankind from behind with a steel chair. He begins to pummel him and throws him into the guardrail. He finally throws him into the ring so the match can begin.>

Undertaker pummels Mankind for the opening of the match until Mankind clotheslines Taker to the outside but Taker lands on his feet, he drags Mankind out by his feet and throws him into the steel steps. He then removes the monitors from the Spanish announce table and grabs Mankind by the throat. Mankind elbows Taker in the head and whacks his hand off the announce table. He then rolls Taker on and climbs to the top rope. He jumps off and Taker moves out the way. Taker then Irish whips Mankind in to the ringpost and throws him back in the ring. He signals for the Tombstone and hits in for the 3.

<Undertaker continues the assault and nails Mankind with a chair.>

Jim Ross “Undertaker has lost it.”

Jerry Lawler “And this fans love it. They’re sick!”

Winner: The Undertaker

Every Man For Themselves

<The cameras pick up Animal and Hawk celebrating their victory.>

Hawk “What a great night: we’re once again tag team champions.”

Animal “And things are about to get even better when I win the Rumble and go to Wrestlemania.”

Hawk “Whoa wait a second there, what did you just say?”

Animal “When I win the Rumble and go onto Wrestle………….”

Hawk“Stop right there, nobodies winning that Rumble but me!”

Animal “I have all the respect in the world for you but even your not getting in my way Hawk.”

Hawk “We’ll see about that.”

Jim Ross “It’s everyman for himself!”

Jerry Lawler “There’s no room for friends in the Rumble J.R.”

WWF Championship: Owen Hart Vs Shawn Michaels ©

<A hype video for the match is played.>

<Owen Hart’s music plays and he comes to the ring. He poses on the turnbuckles before warming up on the ropes. Shawn Michaels music hits and he comes from behind the curtain. He poses on the rampway as fireworks go off and struts to the ring. He enters the ring and does the DX sign to more fireworks.>

The match starts off very even with both men jostling for position and a upper hand. Shawn finally gets it with a well-placed drop kick. Shawn controls for a while in a fast paced match. Owen reverses and Irish whip into the corner and Shawn goes of the ringpost and to the outside. Owen follows him outside and throws him into the guardrail. Owen pummels Shawn and throws him back into the ring. Now Owen controls the match for a bit a fast pace. Shawn manages to counter a hurricanarana into a hotshot on the ropes and once again it’s back and forth action between the two at a high tempo. Owen misses with a clothesline and nails the referee by mistake. Shawn capitalises with a low blow and goes outside for a chair. He re-enters but Owen dropkicks it straight into his face. Now Chyna comes down and assaults Owen and set him up for HBK to hit with the steel chair. Owen ducks and it hits Chyna! Owen enziguiri’s HBK and covers for the three but there no referee! Owen tries to revive the referee while HBK slips outside and grabs the title. HBK re-enters the ring and as Owen turns around nails him with it. HBK covers and the referee recovers for a very very near fall. Shawn starts arguing with the referee and Owen rolls him up for a near fall. Shawn and Owen both get up at the same time and being to brawl. Owen gains the upper hand and takes Shawn down with a bodyslam. Owen signals for the sharpshooter and locks it in. Shawn gets close to the ropes but Owen drags him back into the centre. Shawn eventually taps out.

Jim Ross “MY! WHAT A MATCH!”

Jerry Lawler “Owen Hart did it J.R!”

<Owen celebrates and poses to the crowd with the belt.>

Winner and new WWF Champion: Owen Hart

Jerry Lawler “Who’s next?”

<Billy Gunn comes running down to the ring.>

Billy Gunn helps Taker beat on Triple H and then hits Taker. Taker turns around and throws Gunn into the corner and begins to choke him. Triple H clubs Taker from behind and bounces him off the ropes and nails him with a knee to face. Triple H then turns his attentions to Billy Gunn and tries to eliminate him.

Jim Ross “Billy Gunn’s almost gone.”

Jerry Lawler “He better hope this is help.”

<RVD runs to the ring.>

RVD goes to help Triple H but Undertaker gets back up and throws all three over the top with only Triple H hanging on.

Jim Ross “Undertaker is unstoppable.”
