Re: WWF 2001 - The Monopolized Era
Official Preview for RAW is WAR!
April 2, 2001
Off the heels of arguably the greatest WrestleMania of all-time, RAW is WAR! will be airing live from Fort Worth, Texas on TNN!
In one of the greatest and most memorable nights in wrestling history, 5 of the 6 Championships decided changed hands. But none were no bigger or more discussed than the biggest one of them all, the World Wrestling Federation Championship. In an astounding main event, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin battled in an epic encounter. But the most shocking of events took place, as Steve Austin joined forces with the man everyone believed hated him the most, the Chairman of the World Wrestling Federation himself, Vince McMahon!! In the words of Jim Ross, Austin shook hands with 'Satan himself,' after proving to be victorious over The Great One and once again stood tall at WrestleMania as the NEW World Wrestling Federation Champion. There should no doubt be an explosive situation when Austin stands before the fans in attendance in Fort Worth, when he no doubt will be asked the question on the mind of almost, if not every single WWF fan in the world -- why Austin, why?
WrestleMania also saw the second installment of one of the most innovative matches in this generation. The Tables, Ladders, and Chairs II arguably set the bar higher than it ever was set before in front of 67,925 strong at the Reliant Astrodome, as Edge & Christian captured the World Tag Team Championships for the 7th time in their illustrious history as a tag team, and painted a similar picture to last year when they won the Triangle Ladder Match to become the Tag Team Champions at WrestleMania 2000. The Hardy Boyz and The Dudley Boyz should both prove to be in attendance this evening and should begin their hunt to gain the Tag Team Championships that they came so close to gaining, or in The Dudley's case, retaining. We have learned that Edge and Christian will be taking on Too Cool in a non-title match, and Jeff Hardy will be taking on Edge and Christian's new found friend Rhyno in singles action. Don't miss what should be two indicators of where the top three teams in the World Wrestling Federation are after last night's hellacious thriller.
All of this, plus Chris Jericho defending his Intercontinental Championship against X-Pac, and plenty more tonight on RAW is WAR!
Edge & Christian vs. Too Cool
Chris Jericho (c) vs. X-Pac - Intercontinental Championship Match
Jeff Hardy vs. Rhyno
OOC: RAW, if all goes right tonight, could be up as early as tomorrow. If not, expect it by mid-week.
