--The show opens with Vince and Steph. Vince is pissed that HHH attacked he and Steph at the wedding. Yes, she lied, but EVERYBODY lies now and again in a marriage, so Vince supports "Daddy's little girl", and promises that he will make HHH pay, starting with his title shot. Steph says that she's pissed about HHH and Linda, and it will all be dealt with in time. Tonight: Taker/Angle v. HHH/Maven
--Spike (w/o Tazz who was off someplace promoting TE2) d. Booker T (w/o Test who was sent to the back by Booker).
Booker squashes Spike until Spike sneaks in a win.
--Flair and Jericho squable about Jericho's cockiness in his attack on Austin. Flair says that Jericho will face Kane in a non-title match.
--Billy and Chuck exchange Valentines.
--Billy and Chuck d. The APA (via a box of loaded chocolates)
--Austin says that he's an addict. He's addicted to the WWF title. He says that he's going to add to his addiction by defeating Jericho at NWO. What? Defeating Jericho at NWO.
--William Regal d. Val Venis (with the knux)
Val cuts his standard towel promo, but instead gives the girl a heart attached to his tights and kisses her. Regal beats down Jonathan Coachman in a post match interview, but Edge saves.
--Jericho and Austin bicker and share a beer.
--Goldust d. Tajiri (w/Torrie)
Goldie goes after Torrie after the match, but RVD saves.
--Flair has an arguement with some tag teams about who gets a title shot, so he sets up Tag Team Turmoil at NWO with the winner getting a shot at Mania. Teams are: Dudley Boyz, The APA, Billy + Chuck, Storm/Christian, Too Albert and the Hardyz.
--Kane d. Chris Jericho (DQ, Beltshot)
After the match, Austin runs in and does a beatdown on Jericho.
--Vince talks with Hogan on the phone about how much he'll enjoy the nWo at NWO. Angle and Taker promise Stephanie that they'll dismantle Hunter. Steph asks for Hunter's heart, because it's Valentine's Day.
--An nWo Desire Video
--HHH/Maven d. Taker/Angle (DQ, Angle chairshots HHH)
The beatdown continues post match, until Flair tries to run in. Taker gets the better of Flair and Vince and Steph come out. Stephanie will ref Angle/HHH at NWO.

These mini Reeses cup things are addictive...
Nice. Very good recap, I like how you review a live show in a sports reporter style. It makes wrestling sound...legit. Nigel retains yet again and it makes me wonder what Gabe's vision of the successor to Nigel was.
