I think it was more about getting heat on The Rock. I didn't mind because Rock still didn't get a win over Hurricane. Plus he used a chair and blindsided Hurricane, it isn't that bad. Atleast Hurricane was on TV.
But I do have one question, is the No 1 contender supposed to be taken out by a crutch shot?
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.
That was a stupid ending. Austin should have lost to Bischoff after that stunner, mostly because 1- his position in the eyes of the wrestling fans is such that nothing can hurt his popularity, and 2- it'd make the Rock seem like he has a chance at 'Mania, which he doesn't seem like he can do now. Plus it'd put some real heat on Bischoff for once. There's no reason for him to go over tonight if he's going over at 'Mania.
And man, would that be a reason for him to hate Rocky going into Seattle. It'd put just a little intrigue on a match that, otherwise, has little.
Loved the rest of the show, BTW.

A nice, small guarantee of heel heat for the Rock. What kind of beer did he have? Miller Lite, brewed in Milwaukee, in St. Louis, the home of Budweiser. I guarantee that the denizens of St. Louis noticed that.
As always I was happy to see The Hurricane on my screen hitting all of his spots, save the chokeslam, even though he had to wrestle that immobile lump of crap Rodney Mack. I didn't let that get me down, however, and thought the show was pretty good overall. Nice to see some change-up with the Dudleys, despite their explanation being "we turned temporarily bad to make money." Whatever happened to those good old fashioned values our heroes used to have? Maven makes me happy. No RNN update? For shame Randy, but still good to see him back in some capacity. I'm still holding out much hope that Booker gets to go over HHH cleanly at Wrestlemania. The main event, if you could call it that, was alrighty in my opinion as well. We got to see those crazy kids Austin and Rock mix it up thus making us all happy in return. Then again, I can't stand Austin so maybe I'm just happy because he not only got Stunned but also Rock Bottomed.
Thoroughly enjoyed tonight. Wasnt into it as much as usual but some of the thigns i liked were - the jeff and trish kiss- what a lucky man - Rock concert everything else was fine but nothing else really stood out. Preferred last week but im happy with what i got.

Mark out moments: Though not an Rvd fan his bump was sick! Big Poppa Pump w/ Stacy, nice angle starting. Any night you get a Stevie Richards match is gold! Goldust hit the "Flying Ass" move. Nice that shit is soooo funny! Randy Orton, I looked at him and thought he was a fan pretending that he was gonna hit Booker T because he did a little double pump. Then smack! I was like oh shit! I hate that Austin got in his 47 stunners, that sucked.
Larry was one of the masters of the stall. And, if this match is from the 1986 time frame, Leon 'Baby Bull' White was around the level of Earthquake Ferris on the AWA Food Chain. As for his firing: It has to be jealousy.
