WrestleMania Rewind: Undertaker overwhelms Sid (WM13)
By GLENN COLE - Toronto Sun

The World Wrestling Federation heavyweight title has returned to the Dark Side.

Thanks to a little help from an enemy, The Undertaker is once again WWF champion.

The Pale Destroyer, who previously won the belt from Hulk Hogan in 1991 only to lose it mere days later, laid out defending champion Sycho Sid with his patented Tombstone in Wrestlemania XIII's feature match at Chicago's Rosemont Horizon last night.

Sid was furious because another ex-heavyweight champion, Calgary's Bret (Hit Man) Hart, became a major factor in the match.

Hart, who recently lost the WWF title to Sid after a one-day reign, had rattled the big psychopath to the point that the Arkansas leviathan lost his concentration, enabling the Undertaker to apply his devastating move.

Many post-Wrestlemania cards had Sid battling Stone Cold Steve Austin, ostensibly for the championship, with the Undertaker up against Hart for a championship shot. Clearly, the WWF will change direction as the Undertaker begins his second reign.

Earlier in the evening, Hart earned the duke over Austin in a sometimes-vicious submission match which saw Hart pound Austin's face into a crimson mask.

"Whoever crosses my path is going to find out I am the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be," Hart said after his match. "I'm fed up with being backstabbed. It's a whole different set of rules now."

Ahmed Johnson and the Road Warriors won their Chicago Street Fight over the Nation of Domination -- all eight members -- while the Headbangers earned a shot at the WWF tag title by winning a four-team elimination battle against the Black Jacks, the Godwinns and Phil Lafond-Doug Furnas. Owen Hart and Davey Boy Smith retained the tag-team belts against Vader and Mankind.

In another championship bout Rocky Maivia retained the Intercontinental strap by defeating The Sultan.
