Survior Series '98: WWF World Title Tournament. Granted, it was a one night thing, but it was still a tournament.
And about the proposed way to get the IC Title to Smackdown, very good, I like it, doubt it happens though. I see Brock winning at Summerslam personally. He almost has to.
D'oh. Don't know how I missed that one. Good call.

That is a good idea. I feel that any time the IC champ takes on the World champ the IC champ should have to forfeit the title. As soon as the WWF announced that the Warrior was going to forfeit the title I knew that he would beat Hogan at WM6. Any other time in WCW or WWF when the secondary champ took on the world champ the world champ one. Wait GB beat Hogan but that is the only one I can think of. With all the new guys on SD it could be a good oppurtunity for them to show off Orton, Cena, and the rest. Plus I like tournaments. Which was the only good thing about WCW at the end. They were stripping all the belts every other week.

There was another tournament in Sept/Oct of '98 as well for the IC title after Triple H was stripped of the title due to injury. Ken Shamrock beat X-Pac in the final.

I was about to mention the Shamrock IC tourney win. One of the first RAWs I remember watching (I got back into wrestling as an adult as a WCW mark). The one-night tournament format makes for a good show, I think.
I personally think RVD should get the match for Vengeance to be title vs. title shot. RVD wins and then faces Angle at Summerslam for the title. But such are the dreams of me, and are not likely to be seen in reality.
Re: Tazz/Angle You've gotta love wrestling fans. We're the only people who'd argue over the legitimacy of a win in a fixed sport. But that's what makes us great.
