 William Regal (Alliance) vs Tajiri (WWF) with Torrie Wilson

 Regal gets a LOUD round of boos but doesn’t seem to care. Tajiri comes out, alone, to a loud pop, that seems to die off when people realize that Torrie isn’t with him.

Things start off with Tajiri kicking the living crap out of Regal, but Regal blocks and manages to get the advantage.

If you only know Regal as the GM of NXT, watch this match, because he was an incredible wrestler in his time. That said, this wasn’t a great match. The contrast in styles between Regal and Tajiri just didn’t quite mesh here.

Somewhere in this, Regal got a bloody nose, which put him in an even worse mood than he was before. We get a powerbomb set up that was sloppily countered by Tajiri.

This match ended oddly. It was plugging along and then Regal hit the underhook powerbomb and it was over. I wonder if it was stopped because Regal’s nose is bleeding pretty profusely.

Results: William Regal by pinfall after an underhook powerbomb. Even after the victory, Regal can’t let bygones be bygones, he hits Tajiri with another powerbomb before making his way to the back. Torrie comes running to Tajiri’s side, which brings Regal back. He grabs Torrie by the hair and gives her a sloppy powerbomb, just for the hell of it.

Comments: I couldn’t quite get into this match. It just never seemed to mesh and the ending was odd.

Next up is our first Title Unification Match: WCW US Title vs WWF Intercontinental Title. Though, unless my eyes are deceiving me, Test (who is in the Alliance) is IC champ, while WWF’s Edge is the US Champ.

We get a quick recap of the feud between Test and Edge, though since this is title for title, I’m not sure not sure it’s needed.

Backstage, Test is getting…oiled up for his match and acts like a jerk to the lady helping him. Stacey Kiebler comes up and compliments him. Test hits on her in a very self-centered way. Stacey doesn’t totally shoot him down (I would’ve, but that’s me) but wishes him luck and gives his butt a graze before leaving.

Meanwhile, Coach is interviewing Edge. Coach reminds Edge that not only is his championship on the line, but his job is too if he and WWE lose. Edge agrees that this is pretty heavy and that, on paper, things look pretty even. He and Test are tall, athletic, blond, and have odd first names. The biggest difference between them is that Test has been dumped by almost every chick (his words) on the planet. Edge says he isn’t worried about Test, he’s going to win. There’s a really bad pun about boots and it’s over.

 

WCW US Title/WWF Intercontinental Championship Unification Match: Edge (WWE) vs Test (Alliance)

 Test is out first to little reaction. It seems that Heyman’s mic isn’t working, thank God. Edge gets a much better reaction and Heyman’s mic is back (dammit).

We start with a collar and elbow tie up that reminds me of bulls locking horns. Neither guy is willing to give ground, but things finally start moving, but then we’re back to bulls until the fist start flying.

This match was really good but had its rough spots. Test isn’t the smoothest wrestler in the world and Edge was still a fairly young guy at this point. That said, this was a really good match and made both belts feel important.

There’s a lot of pin attempts in this match and it looked like Test could’ve won if he’d been able to fully capitalize on a missed splash by Edge.  Edge goes for a Sunset Flip powerbomb, but Test is too strong. Test goes for…something, but we never get to see what it was because Edge superkicked Test’s teeth out.

By this point, both guys are hitting haymakers and anything else they can think of to put the other guy down. Test goes for a pumphandle slam, which Edge counters into a pin attempt. Test goes for a spear and then a big boot, still can’t get three. He hits the pump handle slam but Edge still kicks out.

Test goes for a powerbomb that Edge counters with a hurricanrana and a spear, but still only gets two. Edge goes for the Edge-cution, but Test counters and goes for a Full Nelson slam, but Edge hits a Victory Roll for three. New Intercontinental Champion!

Result: Edge by pinfall after a victory roll. Test is livid, and Edge is elated. Edge is now safe from being fired, no matter who wins.

Comments: This was a really good match for both guys.

Backstage, Stephanie is pacing and looking worried. Angle appears and asks her what’s wrong. Stephanie says that after the fight Austin’s locker room and the fact that no one in the is getting along, Edge’s victory has her really worried. She talks about her and Shane’s investments in this alliance and that they could lose everything. She then comments that if this fails, she’ll have get a ‘real’ job.

Kurt tells her not to worry about it and defends Austin, but assures Stephanie that he’ll make sure Austin doesn’t screw the Alliance. This seems to reassure Stephanie and Kurt leaves.

In another part of the arena, Lita and Jeff are talking about Matt’s odd behavior lately. Matt comes out of the locker room and asks them what they’re talking about and assumes (correctly) that they’re talking about him. Lita tries to assure him that it’s nothing bad and that they’re just worried about him because of his odd behavior.

Matt takes exception to this and calls out Jeff and Lita for NOT acting strange, considering what’s on the line tonight, not just the tag titles, but their jobs if WWF doesn’t win. He then reminds Jeff and Lita that if they win their championship matches tonight, they’ll have job regardless of who wins the main event.

Jeff and Lita go along with this, and Lita seems reassured by Matt’s words. She goes to the Team WWF locker room… and bumps into Trish, who is acting a little guilty. Trish wishes Lita luck in the match and hurries away. Now Lita is visibly worried and upset.

(for the life of me, I can’t remember if they were going somewhere with Trish in this storyline. If they were, it got scrapped pretty quickly)

Attitude Of Aggression #292- The Big Five Project: King of the Ring ’93

The Big Four Project becomes the Big Five Project as the guys cover King of the Ring ’93 and Bret Hart’s fantastic run to the crown!

Attitude of Aggression

The Big Four Project officially becomes the Big Five Project here on Episode 292. It’s the Attitude Of Aggression and it is time to return for another installment in the chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s now Big Five PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys cover King of the Ring ’93. In the wake of the disaster that was WrestleMania IX, WWE rebounded in a huge way with the first ever PPV version of the King of the Ring Tournament. After being screwed out of his title in Las Vegas, Bret “Hitman” Hart would complete a legendary hat-trick en route to becoming the first, and only, back-to-back KOTR winner. The guys cover all that, including a watch along of the epic Semi-Final match between Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect. KOTR ’93 was also significant as it marked the official end of Hulkamania as Yokozuna emphatically reclaimed the WWF Championship from Hulk Hogan. All that plus Shawn Michaels retaining the IC title against Crush. King of the Ring ’93 was clearly the best PPV of 1993 for WWE (by a wide margin) and the guys have all the details for you here on another epic edition of the Big Five Project!

Classic WrestleMania

Attitude Of Aggression #291- The Big Four Project: WrestleMania IX

The guys review quite possibly the worst WrestleMania of all-time, as Yokozuna wins, and then loses, the WWF Championship all in the span of 5 minutes!

Attitude of Aggression

The Attitude Of Aggression returns for another installment of The Big Four Project, a chronological analysis, review, and discussion about WWE’s Big Four PPVs/ Premium Live Events. On this Episode, the guys face their ultimate challenge…. making WrestleMania IX interesting. Regarded by many as the worst WrestleMania of all-time, the guys do their utmost best to break the event down and to try and make sense as to how and why it was booked as badly as it was. WWE got the location right for WrestleMania IX, but everything else was very wrong. Filled with frustrating non-finishes, matches being made up on the fly, double Doinks, chloroform filled rags, and a bizarre finish done for the sole purpose of getting Hulk Hogan (of all people) over, WrestleMania IX was very bad indeed. The guys do find a few gems here and there though. Is it enough to salvage this event from the lowest level of WrestleMania hell? Join us here for to find out plus much more on another epic installment of The Big Four Project!
