Hey all. Just got back from SS, well a couple hours ago actually. Anyway, right after Goldberg took the 123, Austin's music hit. He came out and called out Vince(with Big Show). Vince came out and Austin brought up the fact that it was his birthday. VKM lied and said he was 50, the crowd jeered him, he then said he was 53, Austin said the crowd showed give him a hell yeah if we thought he was lying. Of course, the crowd obliged. Vince then admitted he was 58.
Stone Cold called out the whole lockerroom to come out. Everybody and I mean everybody came out. They overfilled the ring. Austin passed out beers to wrestlers. Each of the McMahons gave Vince a hug and Linda gave him a kiss(to a huge pop). Austin led the crowd in singing happy birthday to VKM. Austin tried to get VKM to sing to us, but we wouldn't. Trips got on the mic, and convinced Show to do a spinaroonie, but you couldn't see it since the ring was so crowded. Austin tried to get Trips to sing to VKM. While doing so, Austin asked Triple H what his "impression of the PPV was?" Triple H said, "First of all, I'm a professional wrestler, I don't do impressions." Everybody laughed their asses off, in the ring and out. Triple H got Pat Patterson come up their and sing, "My Way." After his performance, Austin gave VKM the mic and the crowd cheered for a speach. He thanked the crowd and the party ended.
It was a pretty cool way to end the show. I couldn't find Zach Gowen or Goldberg in the crowd, but I couldn't be sure because it was so crowded.

Goldberg was probably in the back getting his leg treated by the docs, since it was gashed all to hell in the Chamber match.

"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

Woooo! (You beat me to it, dude!)

This was all sorts of fun! When kgriffey says "everybody", he really-really means everybody! All the wrestlers from both shows (How often does that happen any more?), from Shaniqua all the way up to HHH still dripping from the Elim Chamber. The ring was totally packed. Big Show was easy to locate in the crowd. Rey was sitting on a ringpost, so he could see. (As they were dragging Goldberg off after the Elim Chamber, they were showing a pretty nasty-looking gash on the back of his left leg -- he may have missed the party getting patched up.)

Other parts that I liked: After Vince finally admitted to 58, he told all of us, "I've got one thing to say -- I'm going to outlive every damn one of you!"

Austin was trying to get Vince to sing. Vince countered with "I'll sing as soon as we see a Takeroonie." Taker: "I need Booker T to show me how to do it. Where is Booker?" HHH: "You don't need Booker to show you how. Big Show's been practicing." With very little convincing, we get a totally awful BigShowARoonie -- very funny.

When they talked Pat Patterson into doing "My Way" he was actually pretty good!

The whole thing was great fun, & went til about quarter after 8. But Austin never did get Vince to sing.

If you were in that arena and love the McMahon's then last night must have been nirvana

I thought it was interesting you said people like Shaniqua was out there even though she had no spot on the PPV. I wonder out loud if that's a normal occurrence in going Sunday PPV show when you are not scheduled to do anything, and they weren't traveling with the crew for houseshows because I'm pretty sure there were no houseshows this past weekend.

Sounded like a real sight to see Emma, having everyone out there from both brands as one. Usually you only see that during real sad situations. But this being a happy and joyous situation must have ruled, I think it's a first time I remember this happening... Love to see it, especially seeing who's hanging with who and who's friendly with who. I find the break kayfabe interaction of the superstars really interesting and fun to witness. So any more scoops Emma (or any other poster that was at SummerSlam).

Me fail English? That's unpossible

I'd noticed that there weren't any house shows booked too, & wondered (not out loud) whether that meant that everybody not working was getting a summer vacation week. The other possibility was that they specifically wanted to have an "all employee" event, so made it a weekend. (I have this feeling that I had wrestlers all over town all weekend, & never managed to trip over any of them. I hope at least they were staying at one of the nice resorts, & not just the downtown hotel near the arena.)

When Austin called for Vince to drag his sorry carcass out to the ring, I figured we were going to get a heel/face improv between them. I'm not positive that Vince knew Austin was going to do this. Vince brought Big Show out with him, for protection. They started a little bit that way, but as soon as Austin said it was Vince's birthday & eevrybody started streaming out, it was kayfabe out the window. And the whole crowd flipped right along with that. (It was a actually little funny at Raw last night. A good number of the people there last night had been at SS live, & when Vince first appeared, some people forgot that we're back in kayfabe & we're supposed to hate Vince. So he actually got a bit of legit fond applause before everybody remembered that we needed to be doing heel heat.)

I can't emphasize that word everybody enough. Everybody from both casts, including all the road agents, refs, on-air support people, etc adds up to something in the 70-80+ people neighbourhood. They were coming in in a continuous stream for minutes. All piled into the ring, & still attempting to leave enough room for Vince & Austin to do some schtick, & for Big Show to do his BSaroonie. It was packed in there -- there was no "who was hanging with who", it was "where can I wedge in?" :-) I'm not especially a camera person, but I really wished I had one for that sight.

They were filimig the whole thing -- they film everything. Maybe-maybe they'll show part of it on Confidential sometime -- that'd be great.

That? Is awesome. I love it when they break (what's left of) kayfabe and have realtime interaction.

The BigShowARoonie sounds hysterical, but doesn't surprise me. Isn't he known for being a big (ha!) ham backstage? I faintly remember him doing a Hulk impression during a Christmas party that was priceless.

On a tangent, but while I'm talking about Show -- I watched an old tape of Nitro I have laying around the house, and did he or did he *not* come to the ring with a drink and a cigarette?! Was this part of his gimmick, or had WCW really deteriorated that badly?

Edited because Nitro and Thunder were indeed two different shows, no matter what people say.

During May and June 1998, Giant came to the ring smokin'. Here's an example from the 15.6.98 Nitro:

CHRIS ADAMS v. SMOKIN' GIANT - hey! This is a no smoking facility! It runs like this: Adams: "C'mon, let's fight!" Giant: "Wait, I'm smoking." Adams: (punch kick) Giant: (KO punch) "Wait 'til I'm done smoking, dammit!" Adams: (weak attempt at a superkick) Giant: (chokeslam) - cool to see him keep the cigarette in his mouth while he's doing the chokeslam! (:42ish)

And, even during that last match, Tony Schiavone STILL managed to say "Karl Malone" THREE times in the midst of his non-commentary.

Oh, thank you!

Much appreciated, CRZ.
