Shane wins, Mankind loses

 Now we've seen it all.

Continuing the march to WrestleMania 15, the World Wrestling Federation broadcast an action-packed edition of Raw last night during which every WWF title except the coveted tag belts were up for grabs.

In the shocker of the evening, Shane McMahon, the son of fed owner Vince McMahon, won the European Title from X-Pac in a strange tag bout.

D-Generation X members Hunter Hearst-Helmsley were looking to avenge their loss to Chyna and Kane on the St. Valentine's Day Massacre pay-per-view. They demanded a rematch. Shane McMahon answered their challenge raising the stakes. He proposed that X-Pac put the Euro title on the line in a tag match. Eager to get their hands on McMahon, DX agreed.

Former DX valet Chyna interfered handing McMahon the Euro strap as Triple H brawled with Kane on the floor. McMahon clocked X-Pac in the head for the pin and the title win. Shane, Vince McMahon and members of The Corporation broke open the champagne in the locker room flaunting Shane's tainted victory.

It is rumored that Shane will grant X-Pac a rematch at WrestleMania.

Also on Raw, Mankind lost the WWF World Heavyweight title to The Rock in a ladder match. Paul Wight (formerly WCW's The Giant) chokeslammed Mankind off the top of the ladder as Foley had Socco buried deep down Maivia's throat. New WWF Hardcore champion Bob Holly successfully defended the strap against Steve Blackman with the help of Droz and freshman Intercontinental champion Val Venis dumped Ryan Shamrock and Billy Gunn to retain the belt.
