The show began with Joey Styles in the ring. He was interrupted, however, by
Chris Candido and Tammy Lynn Sytch, who came out and announced that they had
hired some "protection" for the World title match later in the evening with Taz.
The protection turned out to be six time ECW World Tag Team Champions the Dudley
Boyz. Taz' music played and he hit the ring, thus starting the main event.

-ECW World Heavyweight Champion "Human Suplex Machine" Taz defeated
Chris Candido (with Tammy Lynn Sytch) by submission to the Taz-mission in under
a minute. The Dudley Boyz then hit 3D on Taz, who was carried out of the Arena.
Dudleys then challenged any team to a match, as they have done at the last
several PPV's.

-ECW World Tag Team Champions The Dudley Boyz (with Sign Guy Dudley & Joel
Gertner) defeated Balls Mahoney & Spike Dudley when The Dudleys pinned Mahoney
following the 3D. Balls accepted the challenge, and was later joined by
Spike. However, they could not overcome the tag champs.

-Super Crazy defeated TAKA Michinoku following a Crazy Bomb (powerbomb cradle).

The Dudleys Boyz discovered a hit list in the locker room with Joel Gertner.
They then attacked the first man on the list, Nova.

-Yoshihiro Tajiri defeated "The Extreme Stud" Little Guido (with Big Sal E.
Graziano) following a brainbuster.

In the locker room, The Dudleys attacked "Rugged" Rod Price.

-"The Man to Beat" Lance Storm (with "Beulah") defeated "Innovator of Violence"
Tommy Dreamer (with "Head Cheerleader" Francine) following a spin heel kick off
the top rope. Storm had stuffed a trash can over Dreamer's head, and then hit
the kick off the top.

The Dudley Boyz attacked Jack Victory in the locker room area. Taz then
challenged the
Dudleys to a handicap match for the main event.

-ECW World TV Champion "Mr. PPV RVD" Rob Van Dam (with "The Man Who
Calls it Right Down the Middle, the Manager of Champions" Bill Alfonzo) defeated
"The New F'n Show" Jerry Lynn following a 5-star Frog Splash. This one went for
over a half hour, a TREMENDOUS match. I can sum it up in four words: Match of
the year.

-Justin Credible came out and told the world how he had grounded the Great
Sasuke, caned the Sandman out of ECW, and broken Shane Douglas' ankle in his own
hometown of
Pittsburgh. "Judge" Jeff Jones then appeared, and informed Credible
who he would be matched up against.

In the back, the Dudley Boyz (along with a returning "Big" Dick Dudley) attacked
Chris Chetti.

-Sid (with "Judge" Jeff Jones) defeated "Hardcore Icon" Justin Credible (with
"Sexiest man on Earth" Jason and Jazz (AKA "Namelesswoman")) by disqualification
when Lance Storm interfered. After the match, Storm and Credible set Sid up on a
table, but Sabu appeared and attacked both Lance and Justin. He set Credible up
on the table along with Sid, but Storm pulled him off before Sabu could put him
through the table. Instead, it was just Sid who was put through the table by
Sabu, as Storm and Credible ran for the back. Afterwards, Sid turned on Jeff
Jones and powerbombed him twice.

-ECW World Champion "Human Suplex Machine" Taz defeated ECW World Tag
Team Champion Buh Buh Ray Dudley (with Sign Guy, D-Von & "Big" Dick Dudley
and Joel Gertner) by submission when Buh Buh Ray submitted to the Taz-mission.
Before the bout, Taz had declared "FTW" rules (falls count anywhere, no DQ).
Happy ending within sight for Scott Hall and family
By Mike Mooneyham
Sunday, May 16, 1999
Pro wrestling, with its phenomenal popularity and controversial characters, has
become fertile fodder for the likes of trash tabloids and other similar sources
that specialize in embellishing what's wrong in society today.

Read all about Sable's heartbreak over her fhusband's drunk driving accident
that claimed his and three others' lives (the accident occurred nine years ago
and involved her first husband, not present spouse Marc Mero). Learn the sordid
details concerning the nasty divorce between superstar "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
and wife Jeannie (the two parted ways amicably and without much fanfare). You
get the picture.

I guess one can say pro wrestling has arrived. Regrettably its presence on
shelves at the supermarket checkout counter has validated its popularity and

Every once in a while, though, a bright spot emerges. Someone digs his way out
of a hole. These aren't exactly the kind of sensationalistic stories you'll find
on the covers of tabloids. But they exist.

Just a few months ago Scott Hall was written off by many as "the next Brian
Pillman waiting to happen." His own wife didn't give him much of a chance the
way he was going, but she never gave up hope. If it took everything she had, she
wouldn't allow it to happen. Even though she forced the issue with a divorce
last year, she never stopped caring and refused to relent.

Dana Hall's mission was far from easy and, in the opinion of many, not even
achievable. She recoiled at the image of her children watching their father's
police mug shot aired on the local television news. Report after report of
drunken stupors, totaling car after car, and even the company he worked for
exploiting his real-life character on television stacked the odds clearly in
favor of failure and invitable tragedy. But, as far as the Halls are concerned,
that's ancient history. The story isn't over, but the picture is much brighter
now. A happy ending is within sight. Scott Hall continues to make strides in
putting his personal and family life back together.

Hall, who so far has taken most of this year off not only to deal with
well-documented substance abuse problems, but also to patch up his relationship
with his wife (the two remarried earlier this year) and spend time with his two
children, had been scheduled to return to WCW as part of a Horsemen angle and
was slated to do a run-in during the Ric Flair-Roddy Piper match at Slamboree.

Feeling he needed more time at home with his family, Hall wisely asked for an
additional three months off. When he returns, it will be in a limited capacity,
working only television and pay-per-views. Recent reports that circulated of a
separation between the Halls were unfounded, perhaps stemming from the fact
Scott had spent some time in his nearby home (the Halls have three residences)
while making arrangements to move back in with his family. No one expects the
road to be without a few bumps and curves along the way. its hard to think
about the possibility of abandoning a million-and-a-half-dollar yearly salary.
The glare of the spotlight can be as addictive as the strongest drug known to

Sometimes there's a price tag attached to doing the right thing.

• Henry Marcus, who put
Charleston and Columbia on the wrestling map during his
half century as a promoter, will celebrate his 88th birthday on Friday.

The ageless wonder who made the phrase "Hold your own ticket!" a lasting memory
for more than one generation of wrestling fans, now resides in

• Our thoughts and prayers remain with Brian Hildebrand (WCW ref Mark Curtis),
who continues to hold his own in his fight against stomach cancer. Brian, whose
weight had dropped to 75 pounds, recently was hospitalized and had a catheter
inserted that enabled him to be fed intravenously around the clock, and his
weight has pushed back up to nearly 100 pounds.

Brian plans on taking part in the second annual Brian Pillman Memorial Show May
19 at
Cincinnati Gardens.

In response to "Underrated wrestlers" in issue 248:
Ok.. first of all.. Bradshaw
HAS ABSOLUTELY NO BUILD. Hes fat. Itlooks like
hes been drinking a 12 pack of beer after every match. His gut hangsover his
belt worse than Flair. His mic skills are most definately not"above-average"
as you stated. If anything just simply average. Bradshaw does deservea push,
as i think he is a very hard worker. But he needs a better gimmick.And thats
exactly why Kane has held so many belts. Not because his mike skills suck, but
because THE FANS LIKE HIM. Supply and demand. Simple as that.
