CushDX went to the WCW
House Show last night (4/25) in
Minneapolis; in the only
memorable moment of
the night, Curt put his hands on his head (like Rick Rude)
and swayed his hips
(like Rick Rude). After doing a Rude impersonation, he
pointed at the sky. I
guess this was Curt's tribute to his longtime friend.

situation in WCW:
Q: Are you still
working for WCW?
A: At the moment I am
not working for WCW, but may very well be in the near

The program was the
night after Backlash, where Stone Cold Steve Austin (SCSA)
defeated The Rock,
retained the WWF Title and retrieved the Smoking Skull
Also, The Undertaker drove off with Daddy's Little Girl
in the back of her
limo. It began with a tribute to those killed in the
school. This was
followed by stills of the SCSA / Rock match and the
A limo pulled into the
arena with Mr. McMahon and The Stooges, Pat Patterson and
After the RAW opening,
JR and James Cornette were at the announcers desk.
The Rock came to the
ring and said he did what he said he would at Backlash,
"whooped SCSA's candy
@$$." He did his
Texas Trailer Park bit and
that got a
chant of "Austin"
going. He said he was still "The People's Champion." He then
called Shane a
"steaming piece of monkey crap" because he didn't stay out
way and that led to
Shane, The Corporation
and The Mean Street Posse (Rodney and Pete Gas) came to
the ring. Shane was
greeted by a chant of "@$$hole." He accused The Rock of
Corporation down, saying he was more interested in talking
mic and into the
camera than in winning the match. He said The Rock is the
who is a piece of
The Rock said he was
"three seconds from laying the smack down on Shane's candy
@$$." With that Triple
H tried to sucker punch him, but The Rock blocked it. He
didn't block Chyna as
she creamed him. The Rock decked Triple H and Chyna. The
attacked The Rock and Shane choked him with The Bossman's
Stick. They left The
Rock laying in the ring.
The Rock recovered and
called after Shane. He asked him if he had the guts to
face him one-on-one.
Shane accepted. The President of Shane's insurance company
had a stroke. They
will meet in the Main Event later.
We saw Mr. McMahon,
with The Stooges, in his locker room. He was adamant that he
didn't want the police
brought in. He said he brought everything The Undertaker
wanted and said "that
SOB better not harm DLG."
After a commercial, we
again checked in with McMahon. He was waiting to hear
from The 'Taker.
We saw Shane and The
Corporation in their locker room laughing at The Rock.
called him "The
The first match was a
non-title tag team match pitting X-Pac and Kane v. The
Brood, Gangrel and
Edge, accompanied by Christian. The Brood did their Ring Of
Fire entrance and
Gangrel his spewing thing. During the match, X-Pac did his
Bronco Buster on
Gangrel and when Christian came in, he was wiped out. Kane
Chokeslammed Edge and
the carnage was ended. The lights went out and The Brood
attacked Kane on the
floor. When the lights came back on, Kane had been hit with
a Bloodbath. The Brood
was gone and when X-Pac went over to check on Kane, he
was Chokeslammed into
the crowd. Note to X-Pac: Playing with fire is dangerous,
however, playing with
Kane cane be fatal.
Winners - X-Pac and
Loser - Kane
Big Loser - X-Pac
We stopped in The
Rock's locker room, where he was getting ready for his
of, I mean match with
Back to McMahon, where
the phone rang.
McMahon spoke with The
'Taker on the phone. The 'Taker assured him DLG was fine.
McMahon told him he
brought everything The 'Taker wanted, turning control of the
WWF over to him. The
'Taker instructed McMahon to deliver the documents to a
nearby hotel by 10 PM,
but said they had to be delivered by SCSA. He called DLG
"his soul mate."
SCSA came to the ring
to a major pop to talk with Michael Cole, but ran Cole's
@$$ off. He said he
did exactly what he said he would at Backlash, and "kicked
The Rock's sorry @$$."
McMahon came to
ringside and pleaded with SCSA to help him. He explained
The 'Taker had DLG and
needed his help. SCSA said he had been thru hell the past
15 months a/c McMahon
and wasn't interested. He told McMahon to kiss his @$$.
McMahon left dejected,
disproving the old adage that "Nice guys finish last."
McMahon just did and
he isn't one.
Back in the locker
room, the downtrodden McMahon told The Stooges he would have
to make the delivery
The next match pitted
Val Venis v. D-Lo Brown, accompanied by Ivory. Prior to
the match, we saw a
clip from last night's Heat from the Handicap Match that saw
Venis face D-Lo and
Ivory. Gender challenged Nicole Bass came down and
annihilated Ivory and
wanted some of The Big Valbowski. Venis headed for the
hills. Venis started
to do his "Hello, ladies" bit but D-Lo came in and the
match got underway.
Venis had D-Lo down when It came down again looking for Val.
He was distracted
allowing D-Lo to plant him and win the match. It came into
ring and eyed Val
lovingly. Val was violently ill. Ivory jumped on its back.
Bad mistake Ivory. It
threw her into Wednesday and again focused her attention
on Val. Val ran for
his life. Be Afraid Val, be very afraid.
Winner - D-Lo Brown
Loser - Val Venis, and
an even bigger one if It catches up with him
We saw SCSA walking
backstage. He ran into The Big Show who told him that The
'Taker has DLG. SCSA
said he didn't care.
Michael Cole talked
with Bad @$$ and Road Dogg backstage. Bad @$$ said Triple H
forgot where he came
from and was going to remind him.
The next match was Bad
@$$ v. Triple H, accompanied by Chyna. The match was even
until Bad @$$ hurt his
left knee. From there on Triple H worked on the knee. When
@$$ came back and was
after Triple H on the floor, Chyna smashed him face first
the ring post. This
brought Doggie to the ring, but Chyna held him off. Triple H
nailed Bad @$$ with
The Pedigree and that was that.
Winner - Triple H
We saw Shane and The
Corporation discussing strategy.
We then saw X-Pac
searching the arena for Kane.
The next match was a
tag team event pitting Mankind and The Big Show v. Test and
The Bossman. Prior to
the match we saw stills from last night's Boiler Room
Brawl between Mankind
and The Big Show, won by Mankind, who was attacked by Test
and The Bossman on his
way out of the boiler room, with The Big Show helping
him. We also saw a
clip from last night's altercation between Test and The
Bossman. The Bossman
hit The Show with a low blow, proving he really isn't very
bright. He headed out
of town with The Show in pursuit. Meanwhile Mankind took
over on Test and fed
him Mr. Socko. He didn't ask for dessert.
Test and The Bossman
went at it after the match, with Bossman using his Night
Stick on Test.
Winners - Mankind and
The Big Show
We saw McMahon waiting
for The 'Taker.
We saw SCSA watching
the program on a monitor.
We followed X-Pac on
his quest to find Kane. If he's lucky, he wont.
We saw Hardcore Holly
fighting backstage wit Al Snow. He demanded a rematch for
The Hardcore Title he
lost to Snow at Backlash.
We finally got to go
into the Cleavage home, where a very large young man was
trying to eat some
cereal. His "mommy" (and why don't all mommies look like
that?) came in with a
pitcher of mothers' milk.
Another shot of The
The next match was a
non-title one pitting JJ, accompanied by Debra and her
"puppies," v. The
Godfather, accompanied by five Ho's. He did his "Pimpin'
easy" bit to a nice
pop. JJ took exception to it not being an Intercontinental
Title match and
challenged The Godfather to make it one. The Godfather
but added a
Stipulation (there's that word again), that if he wins,
becomes one of his
Ho's. JJ agreed. Debra seemed quite willing. Val Venis came
to ringside during the
match and exchanged loving glances with Debra (do I smell
a new costar?). It
came to ringside and Val took off, fearing for his life, or
worse, It might get
her paws on him. JJ was distracted by this and that allowed
The Godfather to roll
him up and pin him. Welcome to the Ho Train Debra. Sorry,
not tonight. Owen Hart
came down and prevented her from joining The Godfather in
the ring. She looked
disappointed. The Godfather celebrated with the Ho's
Winner - The Godfather
- Retains the Intercontinental Championship.
We again saw McMahon
waiting for The 'Taker.
We saw PMS, Jacqueline
and Terri Runnels, stroking a young stud. Terri was
looking real fine
The next match was
Bradshaw v. Nutso, who came down with a baseball bat. Prior
to the match we saw a
stills from Backlash of Bradshaw attacking Nutso with a
bat. As Nutso headed
to the ring, Farooq jumped him from behind and threw him
into the ring.
Bradshaw and Farooq were pounding the crap out of Nutso.
raced in and made the
save. Nutso went a bit wild and pounded the announcers
desk and other
equipment with the bat. He then went back in the ring and
Test, but nothing more
came of it. Could it be that Nutso has found a kindred
We saw Shane headed to
The next match was
either the Main Event or Shane's last few moments on earth,
as he was set to face
The Rock. The Rock beat the crap out of the little
ingrate. The MSP,
Rodney and Pete Gas, came in to help their little buddies
got their @$$es kicked
also. Triple H stormed in out of the crowd and jumped The
from behind. The Rock
fought back, but Chyna came in and also nailed him from
behind. This allowed
Triple H to employ The Pedigree, knocking him out cold.
abused the unconscious
Rock. The crowd chanted "Rocky" without the "Sucks." The
People's Champion is
apparently back. Triple H and Chyna stomped The Rock as
held the referee away.
They finally left him lying in the ring.
We saw McMahon still
waiting for The 'Taker. He left after a awhile.
We saw The 'Taker, his
Fat Friend and the Ministry of Darkness (MOD) somewhere
in the arena. They had
DLG, who was sobbing and whining to be let go.
X-Pac came to the ring
and called Kane out, wanting to know where he stood. As
he waited, Canadian
Country, JJ and Owen, came in from behind and blasted him.
The lights went out
and then Kane came to the ring. JJ and Owen must have
thought they were
safe, so they kept pounding X-Pac. Wrong! Kane kicked both
their @$$es and
Chokeslammed JJ. X-Pac went up to Kane to find out what was
going on. Wrong. He
got Chokeslammed. Kane is one Chokeslamming son-of-a-gun. He
then carried his
little buddy back to the locker room area.
The lights went out
again. It happened so often tonight, one had to wonder is
the arena was paying
their electric bill or not. When they came back on, DLG was
tied to The 'Takers
Symbol. The MOD carried her into the ring and leaned it
across the top rope.
The 'Taker said not to blame him for what was going to
happen, that McMahon
failed to live up to his end of the bargain and SCSA had
showed his true
colors. Do you smell a SCSA/Taker Title Match at the next
Fat Boy began
performing a "wedding" ceremony, marrying DLG to "her Lord
Master." She refused
to accept The 'Taker. Do you suppose her parents warned her
against marrying the
dead? If she did, would their children be alive or dead, or
perhaps the undead?
Nutso raced in with
his trusty Louisville Slugger but was forced to eat it by
MOD. The Big Show came
down and cleaned house, except for The Dead Man, who hit
a home run with the
bat. Fat Boy completed the ceremony and The Dead Man was
about to kiss the
bride, when our hero finally showed. SCSA tore up MOD with
Acme steel chair. The
'Taker took off. SCSA untied DLG and was rewarded with a
hug. Touching spot.
McMahon came to the ring and DLG hugged her daddy. Even more
touching. SCSA didn't
know whether to be happy or get sick over all the
"feelings" he was
watching. The program ended on that happy note.

Submitted by reader:
Just wanted to pass on
a little story for all the Booking Sheet readers who have
"horror" stories about
meeting their favorite superstars. I just got back from
attending the live Raw
in Hartford, Ct. We had borrowed a parking pass from a
friend who has a store
in the Hartford Civic Center, so we got to park where all
the wrestlers park
their cars. We spent about a half hour after the show in the
parking garage, and
got to see everyone who was on the card that night - the
Ken Shamrock, and even
Good Ol' JR! After a while, security cleared all the
fans out that had
gathered (by accessing an elevator) and we decided that we
better head to our
car, since the three of us were the last people there.
Just as we were about
to leave, who walks right down to us, but Stone Cold Steve
Austin! We had not
known it before, but we were sitting inches from his car the
whole time! After the
Champ put his luggage in his trunk, he said goodbye to
his assistant, and
then turned right to us! To be honest, we would have been
thrilled just to be
able to tell the story that we were "inches" from our
favorite wrestler, but
the man WENT OUT OF HIS WAY to say hello to all three of
us, and shook each of
our hands! My girlfriend's little brother got the thrill
of his life, and I
tell you what, I am 28 years old, and for a few moments, I
was 15 again! its nice
to know that with all the negative stories we hear and
read out there that
situations like this still happen!
