Tonight, In This Very Ring: A Collection of Wrestling Timelines

If you're thinking about an ultimate Austin-Jarrett feud, IIRC, Austin wouldn't feud with Jarrett because of bad blood they had from 1989-1990 (I forget what the reason was) and, since Austin was the top draw at the time, this is believed to be one of the reasons Jeff Jarrett left...

OTOH, if this leads to a Dr. Death-Austin feud, that would be fine, too...
Well Austin's beef with JJ is primarilly with daddy Jarrett, according to both Russo and Pritchard. When Austin was coming up in the USWA, Daddy Jarrett actually stiffed him on his pay so badly that he had to eat boiled potatoes for much of his run there. One such incident that boiled this over is when Austin first got that check, Jeff came behind him, slapped Steve on his shoulder and said "Keep on staring at it boy, it ain't gon make it no bigger!" Steve's never forgotten that incident because the first stiffing of Jarrett came in October, Russo wanted Jarrett to go up against Austin right after Mania to get the heat going.
 
The NWA Invasion: No Way Out of Texas
No Way Out of Texas: In Your House

Venue: Compaq Center in Houston, Texas
Attendance: 16,110
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

(Dark: Marc Mero d. Savio Vega)

The Headbangers d. The Nation of Domination (Kama Mustafa/Faarooq) (w/Mark Henry)

We replace Mero and Goldust with two Nation members for the opening match. Stage Dive to Faarooq wins it for the pair.

Taka Michinoku (c) d. Pantera for the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship
The Godwinns d. The Quebecers


Two OTL matches before we start seeing some changes.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette and Bradshaw) d. The Artist Formerly Known as Goldust (w/Luna Vachon) for the NWA North American Championship

And like with the Cornette Call, Jarrett puts Dustin away with a Figure Four and this begins a change in Dustin. As long as he wears the facepaint, he will always be a loser. All that jazz.

The Rock (c) (w/D'Lo Brown) d. Ahmed Johnson for the WWF Intercontinental Championship

And we send off Ahmed with a big IC title bout. Rock Bottom and he's done.

Kane (w/Paul Bearer) d. Vader
Cactus Jack/Chainsaw Charlie/Owen Hart/Stone Cold Steve Austin d. The New Age Outlaws/Triple H/Ken Shamrock (w/Chyna) in an Unsanctioned Eight-Man Tag Team Match

Mostly OTL match, but replacing Vega with Shamrock. Same finish as the OTL match, though. Plus, Kane/Vader stays as well.

The NWA Invasion: WrestleMania XIV
WrestleMania XIV

Venue: FleetCenter in Boston, Massachusetts
Attendance: 19,028
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw win a Battle Royal to determine the #1 contenders to the WWF Tag Team Championship

Entrants: Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw, Los Boricuas I (Savio Vega/Miguel Perez Jr.), Los Boricuas II (Jose Estrada Jr./Jesus Castillo), The Truth Commission (Recon/Sniper), Bart Gunn/Chainz, The Nation of Domination I (Mark Henry/D'Lo Brown), The Nation of Domination II (Faarooq/Kama Mustafa), The Quebecers, The Rock 'n' Roll Express, The Headbangers, Too Much, Disciples of Apocalypse (8-Ball/Skull), Steve Blackman/Flash Funk, the Godwinns and LoD 2000.

So, okay. I decided that instead of Bart Gunn, we're gonna have Dustin join the NWA. It helps that he has the heritage behind him. They last eliminate the Legion of Doom, becoming the #1 contenders for the tag titles. The NWA has a shot at WWF gold.

Taka Michinoku (c) d. Aguila for the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship
Triple H (c) (w/Chyna) d. Owen Hart for the WWF European Championship

Two OTL matches.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Marc Mero (w/Sable) for the NWA North American Championship

And Jarrett now goes after the slightly more serious Mero, but he still gets caught in the Figure Four, not helped by Sable failing as a valet at ringside.

The Rock (w/D'Lo Brown, Kama Mustafa, and Mark Henry) d. Ken Shamrock for the WWF Intercontinental Championship by disqualification
Cactus Jack/Chainsaw Charlie d. The New Age Outlaws in a Dumpster Match for the WWF Tag Team Championship
The Undertaker d. Kane (w/Paul Bearer)
Stone Cold Steve Austin d. Shawn Michaels (c) (w/Triple H and Chyna) for the WWF World Heavyweight Championship (Guest Enforcer: Mike Tyson)

And there's all the OTL matches. It's a slow build to when the NWA stable starts causing some trouble. Right now, they're building members.
 
The NWA Invasion: Unforgiven
Unforgiven: In Your House

Venue: Greensboro Coliseum Complex
Attendance: 21,427
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

The Nation (The Rock/D'Lo Brown/Kama Mustafa) (w/Mark Henry) d. Faarooq/Ken Shamrock/Steve Blackman in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

Faarooq's out of the Nation! And he takes a Rock Bottom! The Nation is still in Domination mode!

Triple H (c) d. Owen Hart for the WWF European Championship
Luna Vachon d. Sable in an Evening Gown Match

Two more OTL matches, but with Dustin no longer in Luna's corner.

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Rock 'n' Roll Express (c) for the NWA World Tag Team Championship
Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (w/Jim Cornette) d. The New Age Outlaws (c) for the WWF Tag Team Championship

And we put Dustin and Bradshaw in two tag title matches back to back. First, the two cement themselves as the best of the NWA by beating out Cornette's old enemies the Rock 'n' Roll Express for the NWA tag belts. Following a seven-minute beatdown on Gibson and Morton, next are the Outlaws, who clown Bradshaw and Dustin. And then they get outdone as well, thanks to Dustin's methodical attacks and Bradshaw's stiff brawling. They finish with Dustin hitting the Curtain Call (or Rebel Yell, loathe as I am to use anything from Jim Jividen's works nowadays) to Ricky Morton and Bradshaw destroying Billy Gunn with a lariat.

The Undertaker d. Kane (w/Paul Bearer) in an Inferno Match
Dude Love d. Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) for the WWF Championship by disqualification

And we keep these matches from OTL... should I have 'Taker lose the inferno match? Would that be a good idea to build up a future match between the two? Anyway, new tag champions! NWA! NWA!
 
The NWA Invasion: Over the Edge
Over the Edge: In Your House

Venue: Wisconsin Center Arena in Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Attendance: 9,822
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Legion of Doom (w/Sunny) for the NWA and WWF Tag Team Championships

And to start things off, we have Dustin and Bradshaw defending both sets of titles against former NWA tag champs, the LoD. Animal takes the Lariat here.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Owen Hart for the NWA North American Championship

Rather than joining the Nation, Owen decides he's had enough of Jarrett's Fargo strutting and talking himself up and he's gonna take the North American title from him. After a good ten minutes between the two, Owen taps to the Figure Four as Jarrett docks a big win.

Marc Mero d. Sable

OTL match.

Kaientai (Sho Funaki/Dick Togo/Men's Teioh) (w/Yamaguchi-San) d. Taka Michinoku/Steve Blackman in a Handicap Match

We get the surprise betrayal here rather than with Val Venis. Surprise, Blackman! Taka's working with the rest of Kaientai! Have a kick to the head for being such a sucker! It's a shorter match due to the swerve, clocking in at five minutes.

The Rock (c) d. Faarooq for the WWF Intercontinental Championship

We'll give that extra five minutes to this match. Rock Bottom keeps it for Rocky.

Kane (w/Paul Bearer) d. Vader in a Mask vs. Mask Match

OTL match.

The Nation (D'Lo Brown/Kama Mustafa/Mark Henry) d. D-Generation X (Triple H/New Age Outlaws) (w/Chyna and X-Pac) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

OTL match, but we sub out Owen for Henry. D'Lo hits the Lo-Down on Triple H to score the pin here.

Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) d. Dude Love in a Falls Count Anywhere Match for the WWF Championship (Guest Ref: Mr. McMahon)

Yep. Of course, this stays.

The NWA Invasion: King of the Ring, Part 2
King of the Ring 1998

Venue: Civic Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Attendance: 17,087
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

The Headbangers (Mosh/Thrasher/Puke) d. Kaientai (Taka Michinoku/Funaki/Dick Togo) (w/Men's Teioh) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

Because why not? I always love the idea of Headbanger Puke. Droz just fits in so nicely with them. Stage Dive to Togo wins it for the Headbangers.

Jeff Jarrett (w/Jim Cornette) d. Ken Shamrock in a King of the Ring Semi-Final

In a flip from OTL, Jarrett wins against Shamrock, advancing to the finals. He hits the Stroke to win it.

The Rock d. Dan Severn (w/Jim Cornette) in a King of the Ring Semi-Final
Too Much d. Al Snow/Head (Guest Ref: Jerry Lawler)
X-Pac (w/Chyna) d. Owen Hart


Three OTL matches. Yeah, NWA World Champion Severn got beat in the semi-finals, but that was due to interference.

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The New Age Outlaws (w/Chyna) for the WWF and NWA Tag Team Championships

And the NWA keep the tag titles once again. Rebel Yell to Road Dogg ends the match.

The Rock d. Jeff Jarrett (w/Jim Cornette) in the King of the Ring Final

So, I was gonna go with Jarrett, but since Austin won't work with Jarrett, I had to give the win to Rocky. However, he does put on a good showing and probably leaves Rocky with a receipt of a bad leg after losing. Attacks him during the crowning, attacks Rock's leg with the scepter and locks him in a Figure Four and just fucks up his leg (kayfabe)

The Undertaker d. Mankind in a Hell in a Cell Match

Last OTL match.

Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) d. Kane (w/Paul Bearer) in a Falls Count Anywhere Match for the WWF Championship

Because I refuse to do a First Blood match with a masked Kane. That's stupid and it wouldn't matter anyway since Austin took the belt back the next day.

The NWA Invasion: Fully Loaded
Fully Loaded: In Your House

Venue: Selland Arena in Fresno, Califonia
Attendance: 9,855
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Val Venis d. Men's Teioh (w/Kaientai)

Put together a mini-feud of Venis fighting Kaientai, just something to have.

D'Lo Brown (w/The Godfather) d. X-Pac (w/Chyna)

OTL match.

Cactus Jack/Terry Funk d. Faarooq/Scorpio

We put Cactus here with Terry and they win the match with a piledriver to Faarooq. Just a simple little tag match.

Mark Henry d. Vader

Another OTL match. So far it seems we got a pattern for this show of OTL match to altered match.

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Disciples of Apocalypse for the WWF and NWA Tag Team Championships

And the NWA keeps again! No one can stop Dustin and Bradshaw! NWA! NWA! NWA!

Owen Hart d. Ken Shamrock in a Dungeon Match (Guest Ref: Dan Severn)

See? Here's an OTL match now.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Rock (c) in a Two-Out-Of-Three-Falls Match for the WWF Intercontinental and NWA North American Championships

The match starts with Jarrett getting a DQ loss by smashing King Rocky's wounded leg again. However, he recovers the point by quickly sweeping the leg and pinning Rock. Five minutes in and both men are tied. Another twenty minutes of match follow and Double J targets the leg the whole match, soon getting Rocky in the Figure Four, forcing him to tap and taking the IC title. The NWA has done it again! They've taken another belt from the WWF!

Jacqueline d. Sable in a Bikini Contest by disqualification (MC: Jerry Lawler)

Sigh...

Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) d. Kane, Triple H and the Undertaker in a Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWF Championship

And instead of the tag title main event, we get a fatal four-way for the big gold. Triple H takes the Stunner here for the loss, with the NWA stable soon stepping out to taunt Stone Cold. They're coming for his belt, but Austin tells them to bring it, maybe give Cornette a Stunner as a warning.
 
The NWA Invasion: SummerSlam 1998
SummerSlam 1998

Venue: Madison Square Garden
Attendance: 21,588
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Heat: The Disciples of Apocalypse (w/Paul Ellering) d. Legion of Doom
Heat: Gangrel d. Edge
Heat: Vader d. Too Much

Change up the Heat matches. Have DoA beat LoD, Gangrel begin his induction of Edge into his Brood and let Vader kill Too Much because that's fun.

D'Lo Brown (c) d. X-Pac for the WWF European Championship

Just let the two put on a good, solid midcard match. Lo Down to X-Pac ends it.

Kaientai (Taka Michinoku/Sho Funaki/Dick Togo/Men's Teioh) (w/Yamaguchi-San) d. The Oddities (Giant Silva/Kurrgan/The Insane Clown Posse) (w/Luna Vachon and Golga) in an Eight-Man Tag Team Match

Yeah, flip this result and let Kaientai win this one out. All four members of Kaientai pin Giant Silva to win the match.

Val Venis/Sable d. Marc Mero/Jacqueline in a Mixed Tag Team Match

And we replace Edge with professional cuckolder Val Venis. Moneyshot to Mero wins the match for them.

Ken Shamrock d. Owen Hart (w/Dan Severn) in a Lion's Den Match

A rare OTL match for this show.

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The New Age Outlaws in a No Disqualification Match for the WWF and NWA World Tag Team Championships

The NWA cannot be stopped! Bradshaw is much more destructive with plunder and just wrecks them both. Rebel Yell to Billy Gunn keeps both sets of belts.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Triple H (w/Chyna) in a Ladder Match for the WWF Intercontinental and NWA North American Championships

It's Triple H vs. Double J! The story here adds Cornette's personal disdain with Triple H over the whole Curtain Call, maybe have Cornette point out the only reason Hunter wasn't fired was that he had his buddy Shawn backing him. All that fun shooting that made people watch Cornette back then (and really now too.) Jarrett manages to grab both belts, overcoming Triple H and maintaining control over the IC title.

Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) d. The Rock and The Undertaker in a Triple Threat Match for the WWF Championship

Undertaker forces his way into Rock's match, though Rock ends up taking the fall here to the Stunner. Austin keeps, hits a Stunner on Jarrett as he charges in for the post-match attack. Cornette watches from the ramp and thinks. He's thinking...

Ironically, SummerSlam was where I was gonna stop as it was around where the OTL NWA was dead (give or take a month) but I'm gonna keep them going until we can get that world title. Dr. Death joined back in May, but rather than doing the Brawl for All, we've been building him up with wins on TV. He's not there yet, but I think I know when he'll take it.
 
On a side note, the reason why Steve Austin left in 2002 instead of putting over Brock Lesnar was this: Austin was not opposed to putting Lesnar over; he just thought there should be a proper build to it (and putting it on Monday Night Raw would do neither any favors)...

The NWA Invasion: Breakdown
Breakdown: In Your House

Venue: Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario
Attendance: 17,405
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Heat: Golga (w/Giant Silva, Kurrgan and Luna Vachon) d. Puke (w/The Headbangers)
Heat: The Hardy Boyz d. Kaientai (Dick Togo/Men's Teioh) (w/Yamaguchi-San)
Heat: The Disciples of Apocalypse (w/Paul Ellering) d. The Headbangers (w/Puke)

The Headbangers lose all their matches here and Togo and Teioh take the loss here for Kaientai.

Owen Hart d. Edge (w/Gangrel)


OTL match but with Gangrel on the outside, occasionally interfering, but Owen wins.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. Vader

Because we need an exit match for Vader and we need a PPV debut for Dr. Death. Also, hoss fight. Never forget the hoss fight. Doctor Bomb vs. Vader Bomb and the Doctor Bomb wins it! Dr. Death has arrived!

D'Lo Brown/Scorpio d. Too Much

Why D'Lo and Scorpio? Why not D'Lo and Scorpio, I say! 450 Splash to Brian wins it for them.

Gangrel (w/Edge) d. Al Snow (w/Head)

Just a good old fashioned brawl ending with an Impaler to the Snowman. Also, Edge joins the Brood. Fun!

Marc Mero (w/Jacqueline) d. Val Venis (w/Sable)

Give Mero a win with the TKO.

The Rock d. Ken Shamrock and Mankind in a Steel Cage Match to determine the #1 contender for the WWF Championship

Same match from OTL.

The NWA (Jeff Jarrett/Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw) (w/Jim Cornette) d. D-Generation X (X-Pac/New Age Outlaws) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

The NWA continues to overpower the goofball DX Army. Figure Four to X-Pac wins it for them.

Kane and the Undertaker d. Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) in a Triple Threat Match for the WWF Championship

You know the finish of this one. Undertaker and Kane can't pin each other, so they pin Austin at the same time, resulting in the title being held up.
 
The NWA Invasion: Judgment Day
Judgment Day: In Your House

Venue: The Rosemont Horizon
Attendance: 18,153
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​
Heat: Puke (w/The Headbangers) d. Steve Blackman
Heat: The Oddities (Giant Silva/Golga/Kurrgan) (w/Luna Vachon and the Insane Clown Posse) d. Los Boricuas (Jesus Castillo/Jose Estrada/Miguel Perez Jr.) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match
Heat: Kama Mustafa (w/Mark Henry) d. Faarooq

Puke gets a singles win against Blackman, the Oddities match is from OTL and Kama hasn't made the switch to Godfather yet and is joined by Henry in thrashing Faarooq.

Al Snow/Scorpio d. The Headbangers (Mosh/Thrasher)

Just a basic opening tag. The mismatched team of Al and Scorp win here after a Snowplow and 450 to Thrasher.

Legion of Doom d. The Disciples of Apocalypse (w/Paul Ellering)

I wanna say that this is the match that wraps up this angle. I think that's right. OTL match, just without Droz and Ellering involved.

Christian (w/Gangrel and Edge) d. Taka Michinoku (c) (w/Yamaguchi-San) for the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship

OTL match.

Val Venis (w/Sable) d. Marc Mero (w/Jacqueline)

Just have them trade wins. Moneyshot victory. This might be a perpetual feud.

X-Pac (w/Chyna) d. D'Lo Brown (c) for the WWF European Championship

OTL match.

Dustin Rhodes/Bradshaw (w/Jim Cornette) (c) d. The New Age Outlaws for the NWA and WWF Tag Team Championships

How many times have these teams fought now? Well, this is gonna be the last one as, during a call for a hot tag, Road Dogg suddenly walks in, picks up Billy Gunn and hits him with a Pumphandle Slam, letting Dustin pin him. Road Dogg has turned on DX! We have promos in the following RAW of the Dogg talking about his history with Cornette, working in SMW and the history of the Armstrong family. He admits that since he's joined the WWF, he's betrayed his roots. He's not a roadie, he's not an Elvis wannabe and he's not a jive-talking whiteboy rapper. He's Brian Armstrong, damn it! He's tired of being a childish clown for you punk kids to laugh at! He's going back to his roots!

I'm thinking that now Brian will be holding the tag belts with Bradshaw while Dustin chases the European title.

Jeff Jarrett (w/Jim Cornette) (c) d. Mankind for the NWA North American and WWF Intercontinental Championships

We keep up the shooty nature of this angle by having Jim promo about how Mick used to be a real man's man. When he was Cactus Jack, he was a mad bastard, but he had Corny's respect. He loved seeing Cactus drop the elbow. Now he's a nutcase living in the sewer, wearing a sweatsock on his hand and kissing up to Vince. Mick brings his usual manic brawling, but Jarrett's methodical and he puts Mankind away with the Figure Four.

The Rock d. Owen Hart

The winner is declared #1 contender for the WWF title, which will basically mean entry into the Deadly Game.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. Dan Severn (c) for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship (Guest Ref: Ken Shamrock)

Rather than the injury angle that they ran in OTL, we have Severn meet Dr. Death here for the NWA World title. It's a huge match as both men had been hyped up, Severn as the Beast and Dr. Death having an undefeated run that started back in May. Shamrock tries to play it down the middle, but the tension between him and Severn boil over and Ken clocks Dan, leaving him open for a Doctor Bomb.

Kane vs. the Undertaker for the WWF Championship ended in a No Contest (Guest Ref: Stone Cold Steve Austin)

Really, nothing wrong with this. Gotta do the Deadly Game, don't we?
 
The NWA Invasion: Survivor Series 1998
Survivor Series 1998

Venue: Kiel Center in St. Louis, Missouri
Attendance: 21,200
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

Heat: Too Much d. The Hardy Boyz
Heat: The Legion of Doom d. The JOB Squad (Bob Holly/Scorpio) (w/Al Snow and Head)
Heat: Val Venis d. Tiger Ali Singh (w/Babu)
Heat: Gangrel (w/Christian and Edge) d. Steve Blackman
Mankind d. Duane Gill in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament

Apart from a change to LOD to JOB, these are ALL OTL matches. Really, the meat of the changes to the TL is in the tournament. And speaking of.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. Al Snow (w/Head) in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament

Instead of Jarrett, we get Dr. Death. And he demolishes Al here. Doctor Bomb after Doctor Bomb. Doctor Bomb onto Head! It's a slaughter before he mercy kills him with a pin.

Stone Cold Steve Austin d. Big Boss Man in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament
Steven Regal vs. X-Pac in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament (Double Count-Out)

OTL matches, though Austin just lands a quick Stunner and takes out Boss Man.

Ken Shamrock d. Dan Severn in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament

Now here's a match worth seeing. Dustin's booked elsewhere on the card, so we bring in Severn to work a match with Shamrock. We can shave the only three minutes off Austin/Boss Man to make that 20 seconds and maybe half Regal X-Pac down so this goes past ten minutes. Shamrock gets Severn to tap at 13:01, making this the longest match in the first round.

The Rock d. Billy Gunn in the First Round of the Deadly Game Tournament

A quick Rock Bottom to Gunn wraps up the first round. Triple H was out on injury, so we sub in another D-X member to take a quick fall.

The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) d. Kane in the Quarterfinals of the Deadly Game Tournament

OTL match.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. Mankind in the Quarterfinals of the Deadly Game Tournament

Mankind is furious at the treatment of his good buddy Al Snow, so he goes wild on Dr. Death, but the hoss makes sure to wreck him too. Tears up Mr. Socko for added heat (Our second mascot murder if we count Head getting crushed when Al got Doctor Bombed onto him) and Mankind also falls to the Doctor Bomb.

The Rock d. Ken Shamrock in the Quarterfinals of the Deadly Game Tournament

OTL match. Maybe take a bit off for Mankind/Dr. Death, but this ends the same.

Sable d. Jacqueline (c) (w/Marc Mero) for the WWF Women's Championship (Guest Ref: Shane McMahon)

OTL match again.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. Stone Cold Steve Austin in the Semifinals of the Deadly Game Tournament

Oh, hell yeah! Dr. Death vs. Stone Cold! Two of the toughest sons of bitches duking it out right here. Just give them OTL time to duke it out, have Cornette sneak in a racket shot at a critical moment to set up for the Doctor Bomb. Dr. Death advances to the finals!

The Rock d. The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) in the Semifinals of the Deadly Game Tournament

And one more OTL match as the Rock is going up against Dr. Death.

The NWA (Dustin Rhodes/Brian Armstrong/Bradshaw) (w/Jeff Jarrett) d. The Headbangers (Mosh/Thrasher/Puke) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match for the NWA/WWF World Tag Team Championships

Hell yeah! Six-man tag! Team NWA is joined by Jarrett on the outside and they're tearing up the Headbangers. Pumphandle Slam by Armstrong to Mosh keeps the tags in the NWA. But that's not what you all came here for.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Rock for the WWF World Championship

And the NWA now holds the three major titles in the WWF. Really, the European title is just gonna be gravy at this point. Doctor Bombs aplenty for Rocky. He plays babyface the whole way. Nation members block the NWA from interfering, but it isn't enough to save him from the Doctor Bomb. It's all over for Rocky and the NWA are finally on top. Cornette is overjoyed, as he should be while Doctor Death simply walks off with a belt over each shoulder.
 
The NWA Invasion: Capital Carnage
Capital Carnage

Venue: London Arena
Attendance: 10,500
Announce Team: Jim Ross/Jerry Lawler​

(Dark: Mark Henry d. Steve Blackman)

The Brood (Gangrel/Edge/Christian) d. The Headbangers (Mosh/Thrasher/Puke) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

We kick off tonight's special London PPV with the Brood dominating the Headbangers. The Ministry won't really be in focus here since we're coming up on the end of the TL, but this is a wild brawl, ending with an Impaler to Mosh. Get the crowd going.

Al Snow d. Tiger Ali Singh

Have I mentioned that I do not allow Tiger Ali Singh to win ever? I've done this PPV three times and Tiger has never won. And never will.

Owen Hart d. D'Lo Brown

I feel bad for leaving Owen off the cards on this one. No excuse but laziness, so we'll have him work a match with D'Lo here. Get a win just to throw him a bone.

Dustin Rhodes (w/Jim Cornette) d. X-Pac (w/Chyna and Triple H) for the WWF European Championship

Dustin gets strapped up again, adding more gold to the NWA. X-Pac tries, but as fast as he is, he can't keep Dustin down. Rebel Yell puts X-Pac away.

Val Venis/Sable d. Marc Mero/Jacqueline in a Mixed Tag Team Match

And this will wrap up Mero, taking one more Moneyshot before he leaves the company.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Ken Shamrock for the NWA North American/WWF Intercontinental Championships

This'll be a good match. Jarrett and Shamrock are boys, so they'll work great together. Figure Four wins it for Double J.

Triple H (w/Chyna) d. Billy Gunn

See, Billy failed to take the WWF title, which Hunter had hoped would give him an easy way to the belt, so he was kicked out of D-X, which has continued to dwindle. Pedigree to Billy makes this match quick.

Brian Armstrong/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Legion of Doom (w/Paul Ellering) for the NWA/WWF Tag Team Championships

We wrap up the Road Warriors here too. As former NWA tag champions, they have the right to this match, but it goes to Armstrong and Bradshaw. To add insult to injury, Brian puts Hawk on his shoulders, followed by a flying clothesline from Bradshaw. Doomsday Device! It's all over and the NWA keep again!

Dr. Death Steve Williams (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Rock for the NWA/WWF World Championships

And the Rock gets another shot Dr. Death, but it goes no better. D'Lo and Henry keep back the NWA invaders again, but still, it all ends in a Doctor Bomb.

Stone Cold Steve Austin d. Kane, Mankind and the Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) in a Fatal Four-Way Match (Guest Ref: Gerald Brisco)

We finish tonight with the only OTL match on the card. Can't go wrong with this four main eventing.
 
The NWA Invasion: Rock Bottom
Rock Bottom: In Your House

Venue: General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia
Attendance: 20,050
Announce Team: Michael Cole/Jerry Lawler​

Heat: Matt Hardy (w/Jeff Hardy) d. Brian Christopher

Give Matt a nice little win here on free TV.

Heat: Faarooq d. Big Boss Man

Just to do. Dominator win.

Val Venis d. Billy Gunn

Billy, not out of DX, is jobbing for a while. It's gonna be a rough time for Billy.

The Headbangers (Mosh/Thrasher/Puke) d. The Oddities (Golga/Kurrgan/Giant Silva) (w/Luna Vachon) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

We expand the OTL match to a six-man. Stage Dive to Kurrgan wins it. The Oddities are coming to an end.

Triple H (w/Chyna and X-Pac) d. Ken Shamrock

Give Hunter some more momentum by having him beat the World's Most Dangerous Man. Pedigree gets him the win.

The Brood (Gangrel/Edge/Christian) d. The JOB Squad (Al Snow/Bob Holly/Duane Gill) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match

Gonna be a lot of six-man tags tonight. We switch Scorpio for Gill, with Duane taking the Impaler from Christian to end the match.

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Owen Hart for the NWA North American/WWF Intercontinental Championships

We give a shot to Owen, but there's no one who can stop the NWA. Another racket shot costs a face as Owen soon falls to the Figure Four.

The NWA (Dustin Rhodes/Brian Armstrong/Bradshaw) (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Nation (D'Lo Brown/Kama Mustafa/Scorpio) (w/Mark Henry) in a Six-Man Tag Team Match for the NWA/WWF Tag Team Championships

Another six-man tag! Despite the efforts of the Nation, the NWA keeps again after a stolen Doomsday Device to Scorpio.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. The Rock (w/Mr. McMahon and Shane McMahon) for the NWA/WWF World Championships

Really sorry, Rock. That's three straight losses in a row. This might be the most unrealistic part of the TL. Nation and NWA are pretty much wiped from the tag match, but a guitar shot from Jarrett costs Rock this one, leaving him open for a Doctor Bomb. Vince and Shane are here to help Rocky as Mr. McMahon is more than sick of these damn NWA bastards running his show. Cornette gives a nice hard racket shot to Shane and one for Vince to keep them at bay.

Stone Cold Steve Austin d. The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) in a Buried Alive Match

And one more OTL main event. Austin wins the right to enter the Royal Rumble Match next year.
 
The NWA Invasion: Royal Rumble 1999, Part 1
Royal Rumble 1999

Venue: Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim, California
Attendance: 15,000
Announce Team: Michael Cole/Jerry Lawler​

(Dark: Christian (w/Edge) d. Jeff Hardy (w/Matt Hardy))

Heat: Too Much d. The JOB Squad (Bob Holly/Scorpio)

Flip the result here. JOB Squad kind of needs to lose for their gimmick to work.

Heat: Mabel d. Big Boss Man

Make it fast, I want to minimize the presence of Mabel as much as possible.

Brian Armstrong/Bradshaw (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. D-Generation X (Triple H/X-Pac) for the NWA/WWF Tag Team Championships

Things continue to go bad for D-X as the NWA beat them here for the tag belts. Triple H becomes furious with X-Pac, and he gives him a Pedigree on the way out.

Dustin Rhodes (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Billy Gunn for the NWA European Championship

You read that right! It's no longer the WWF, but the NWA European Championship. And poor Billy Gunn falls to the Rebel Yell as Dustin keeps it the NWA European Championship.

Sable (c) d. Luna Vachon (w/Shane McMahon) in a Strap Match for the WWF Women's Championship

Our only OTL match tonight, so how about that?

Jeff Jarrett (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Ken Shamrock for the NWA North American/WWF Intercontinental Championships

Just another Jarrett/Shamrock affair to keep things good. One more match before the Rumble.

Dr. Death Steve Williams (c) (w/Jim Cornette) d. Mankind in an I Quit Match for the NWA/WWF World Championships

Oh yeah, it's this match. Sure, I think the spots will be different based on the styles, but it's a brawl all the same. Maybe not ten chairs shots to the head, thankfully. Maybe one or two sprinkled in. Mankind takes at least five Doctor Bombs before finally calling it quits. And gets one more Doctor Bomb before Williams leaves.

That wraps up the preliminary matches and next up, it's time for the Rumble!
