Monday Night Raw
January 31, 2000
Commentators: Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler
I got a really wierd e-mail today. It was one sentence long and it said
McMahon will return tonight. For the last two hours I've been trying to
figure out who it was from and I got no clue, so TERMEDI@aol.com, if your
reading, you've sent me on a quest for the last 2 hours to figure out if you
really know what your talking about.
WWF title sequence once again to start the show right into the RAW title
sequence and the normal fireworks display. Welcome to the Igloo in
Pittsburgh, PA for RAW IS WAR!
**Tag Team Title Match**
New Age Outlaws vs. Al Snow/Steve Blackman (Head Cheese :-)
Once again, Road Dogg does a great job of getting over as a heel (really
sarcastic). There's a sign ringside that says "You are heels" RD and BA
should take notice of it. Blackman says he's gettin tired of all the names.
Al says what about one more? Snow Storm. Blackman says whatever and Al
hands him an umbrealla and rain coat. CHRIS BENOIT, EDDIE GUERERRO, PERRY
SATURN, and DEAN MALENKO show up in the front row and shake hands with Al
Snow. Ross says they haven't signed any contracts that he's aware of after
King makes fun of WCW while they talk about those four walking out. O.K.
back to the action. Blackman and Road Dogg start. JR turns into Fat Tony
and talks mainly about the WWF four instead of the match. Awesome power
move by BA with a huge gorilla press slam. Road Dogg with the knee drop for
a two count. Road Dogg isolated in the corner. Road Dogg with a low blow
and a tag to Gunn. Gunn hits a jackhammer but Snow interrupts the count.
Road Dogg gets thrown into the railing and then right on the laps of the WCW
four. Road Dogg attacks Chris Benoit and hell breaks lose as all four jump
the rail and attack the Road Dogg. Saturn suplexes BA and Eddie hits a frog
splash. All four in the ring. Malenko suplexes Road Dogg. Benoit to the
top for the head butt. The four leave the Outlaws laying in the ring. The
invasion has started!

Kurt Angle vs. The Rock
Angle goes right after Rock. Rock takes early control. Angle goes to the

he can find then spits water in his face. Angle grabs the mic and asks
what's wrong with these people. Says he was born in this town. Rock looks
up and asks how much time is left in the match (looks like a WCW production
mistake). Rock hits Angle from behind, takes the mic and says it doesn't
matter where you were born at. Back in the ring, Rock beating up on the
Rock. Low blow by Angle followed by a belly-to-back suplex. Rock fights
back, but Angle hits a belly-to-belly for a two count. Rock with a kick to

there or HHH will go after him. "10-9-8-Shut the hell up, I'm trying to
count-7-6-the hell with this, I'm coming to get you." Cactus Jack's Music
hits! Steph joins JR and Ross at ringside. Cactus says he invited four
guests and "you had the gall to throw them out of the building." Cactus

forgetting. Then he thought about bygones being forgotten and now he's
thinking maybe he'll just come in and take a piece of HHH's ass.
