Raw Feb 1998 - The New Age Outlaws push the dumpster off the stage

What do people think about this angle, for those who have not seen it in a while, here's what happened, Terry Funk under his Chainsaw Charlie persona and Cactus Jack were in the midst of a hardcore match, they had challenged each other earlier in the day to find out who the real king of hardcore was, Cactus placed Funk in the dumpster climbed the titantron and dropped an elbow in the dumpster, at that point, the Outlaws who had been feuding with them, came out, closed the lid on the dumpster and pushed it off the stage, with JR screaming 'Don't do that, there's people in there'

At that point, the show seemed to stop as the entire locker room came out to assist the medics with Cactus and Funk, I think this was one of the first times the heel-face line was divided as you had the Headbangers, Flash Funk and Savio Vega help to load them in the ambulance, Sunny was in floods of tears [she looked genuenly upset] Vince Mcmahon [who was not fully Mr Mcmahon yet] came out to assess the situation, at one point it was hinted at that even the Outlaws regretted doing it.

I cam't remember a time before this where everyone had thought a heel went too far, Jerry Lawler [a full on heel at the time] said it was stupid and Kevin Kelly said the Outlaws are fathers and what must their children think of them [the first time I can recall an announcer saying that about a heel's action]

This moment is never really talked about, what did everybody think?

LOL, this event was in Indianapolis. My friend was in attendance and said people were getting pissed that it took a whole hour. As well as laughing at them going off stage.

I remember Sunny crying and saying "That's my dad", about Terry Funk, which is still fucking weird. Funny segment though. Got Outlaws even more over for being assholes. Especially their celebration afterward.

The next week, they re-enacted the whole segment using dummies or blow up dolls. This too was hilarious. I think it was Billy Gunn, performing CPR on a dummy, saying "We're all they've got!"

I was watching it last night and the amount of replays they showed were overkill, I was wondering if Raw lost viewes to Nitro that night

That's the angle that pushed the New Age Outlaws characters over the edge so to speak.

I always thought that was a lame bump really.

I think Sunny was referring to Terry as a father fiqure.


It looked very real with The Outlaws apologizing to Vince

They probably overdid it with the replays but it was still an awesome angle and a very entertaining feud. Helped establish one of the most entertaining tag teams ever.

Also remember JR talking about how people were doing crazy things "just to get over" during that segment. An early example of that kayfabe-defying element in the Attitude Era.


Press Play to wake up.

And then join the 100 Years Alan Pardew Club!
