Drop, to retain the Intercontinental Title.
- The Blue Meanie did his variation of Sable's grind, saying, "This is for all
the men who want to be be, and all the women who came to see me." The Godfather
did his Ho Train and Pimpin' Ain't Easy introduction. The Godfather said he
wouldn't offer the ho's to Goldust, because they didn't like him. As the match
went on, The Blue Meanie handed Goldust some powder. Goldust was about to use it
on The Godfather, only to get it thrown into his own eyes. Goldust then put
Meanie through the Shattered Dreams Kick. When turning around, The Godfather

was just taking care of Stephanie and he hoped Shane didn't mean all that he
said. Stephanie said Shane knew exactly what he was saying when he put his word

a pecking order and he would show X-Pac what it was. He once again said he made
X-Pac and he would break him.

• Triple H (w/Chyna) defeated X-Pac with the Pedigree.

to retain the Heavyweight Title and capture his own custom-made belt.
- The Rock wore Stone Cold Steve Austin's custom-made Heavyweight Title belt.
Shane McMahon handed a ring crew members Austin's belt and said to take it to
his office. Austin and The Rock took it down the aisle. The Rock nailed Austin
with a fire extinguisher. The Rock then threw Austin into the steel set of the
entrance-way. The Rock was suplexed onto the floor. The two continued to tear
apart the set by throwing each other into it and battled it around the
production area. Thus far, Shane had shown no favoritism. Back near the ring,
Austin was Rock Bottomed through the Spanish announce table. The Rock then did
his commentary skit on the Spanish announcing area. Shane handed The Rock a
chair, but Austin fought back. The two then took in the crowd. The Rock took a
WWF camera and filmed Austin as he threw out insults. Austin then nailed The

another Stunner, but The Rock pushed Austin away, into Shane. The Rock then hit

Stephanie's limousine. Stephanie told the limo driver to wait for her dad. The
Undertaker then turned around and said, "Where to Stephanie?" and started to
evily laugh, as Stephanie screamed and realized it was The Undertaker. Austin
drunk away on beers as the show went off the air.
I talked to Georgie when I got home and she told me that Sid is saying that he
was never booked for the Cyberslam show on 4/3. All I can tell you is I know for
a fact that he was booked for that show, sent a ticket, and even changed the
ticket to a later flight in the day before eventually not showing up at
Cyberslam, so he did no-show that card. He also told Georgie that he received
some bad checks, as have many of the ECW workers recently. That may very well be
true, and if it was, he should just say that is why he didn't show up. He was at
the Queens show, reportedly looking for replacement checks. As bizarre as this
sounds, I was told he came up north and was actually visiting the WWF. The
rumors continue to make the rounds that Shane McMahon wants to bring Sid back
in. If he comes back to the WWF, again, it just goes to show that there are very
few bridges in this business than can actually be burnt.

WCW has always had a smaller ring than the WWF. WCW's ring is square, while the
WWF ring is a rectangle. The WCW probalby uses a smaller ring to offer more
tickets to sell. When wrestlers switch between the two leagues, they need time
to adjust to the different dimensions of the ring, which can be a hassle for
them. I always thought that the WCW ring was too small as well.

Many people have been thinking about who the leader of DX could be, and you
don't see anyone that "fits". Well, of course you don't! DX is a gimmick. If
you have a degenerate gimmick, and you can be in DX. Only the DXers have
Degenerate gimmicks. Would 1-2-3 Kid fit in DX? Hunter Hearst Helmsley? The
Roadie? RockaBilly? Of course not. But they got
NEW gimmicks, so they fit.

Nobody can just "join" DX. Nobody will fit. Unless they change somehow. None of
the wrestlers who were ever in it could have been thought of as "Degenerates"
until their new angle. IF DX NEEDS more members, they won't have problems
finding any, there will just be a slight change.
