Monte, that is a great idea. I would have it that Austin makes the matches early in the night. Tell HHH he has to defend all the titles tonight. You have HHH ask him when the matches will take place. Austin tells him to just be ready. HHH asks Austin 3-4 times through the night, Austin says, "Just be ready." Then for the Main Event, it is 3 on 1. All the matches are taking place at the same time. They basically beat the crap out of HHH, stop Flair and Jericho's interference, all hit their finishers, and take turns pinning HHH, thus getting their belts. It wouldn't make HHH look THAT bad since it was a 3 on 1, the titles are back, and the HHH/Austin friction gets going. The run-ins are a must so that HHH doesn't get a babyface/underdog vibe to him. But it would never happen.
January 4th 1999 - The day WCW injected itself with 10 gallons of Liquid Anthrax...AKA...The day Hogan "Defeated" Nash to win the WCW title in front of 40,000.
I like Monte's idea, but the Euro and Hardcore titles should stay dead. They could TEASE bringing them back using Monte's three match idea, yet HHH would retain in the first two matches. Finally, after a hard fought contest, he loses the third match and the IC title.
I have an idea since Smackdown has a more "WWE Vibe" and RAW already has a "WCW Vibe" with the way the commentators are put and RAW having the formerly WCW World Title.
Stephanie comes out on Smackdown and makes a big deal that she some how was able to get control of the IC Title and bring it to Smackdown (since it used to be a RAW title).
Then next week on RAW, Austin or Bischoff should come out and be upset about what Stephanie has done and they want to one up her. Austin and/or Bischoff comes out and announces that they are bring back the new (WCW) WWE U.S. or T.V. Title. Both RAW and Smackdown can have their own competitions to crown their champions.

the U.S. Title IS also part of the World Heavyweight Championchip as the US and IC were consolidated when Edge (IC) beat Test (US) so if you want it back there has to be the above mentioned scenario of HHH losing it and THEN following what seems to be the natural progression have someone from SD challenge for the IC at a PPV and have it float over to SD.

True but didn't the IC Title get unified into the RAW World Title and now its back. So some one can just stand up and say "I want this title back" and it can happen. So (after seeing RAW bring back the IC Title) they still could bring back the TV and/or US Title.

Technically, wasn't the HHH/Kane match dubbed "Winner Takes All" not a "Unification" match like the Edge/Test one was?
That means when Hunter won, he won the I-C Title so he held both titles. They weren't consolidated into one title. Therefore, the 30 day defence rule comes into play, HHH was mysteriously stripped of the title, and now it's back.
Okay -- so they announced the I-C battle royal for Judgment Day last night (if this is in another thread I haven't read yet, I apologize). I'm just wondering who they could put in it, using the former I-C champions on Raw criteria. The way I figure it, you've got:
Chris Jericho Rob Van Dam Lance Storm Chief Morley (under a mask as `Mr. Morley') William Regal (maybe) Shawn Michaels Christian Goldust
And if you borrow from SmackDown's roster, maybe you could add:
Rikishi A-Train Eddie Guerrero Roddy Piper
The way I figure it, the other former Intercontinental champions they have (Austin, Rock, Nash, HHH) definitely aren't in the match. Unless they bring back old I-C champ retreads for one night (Honky Tonk Man, Greg Valentine, Randy Savage), I just don't see this being anywhere NEAR a 20-man battle royal.

It would be the first back to back 1-on-1 wrestlemania match between two wrestlers who did not meet as the result of a tournament in the HISTORY OF THIS GREAT SPORT*. (Edit: Pending your interpretation of Bret V. Yoko at WM 10)
