WWF Winnipeg Report: July 2, 1998


X-Pac Vs D-Lo Brown

D-Lo had control for most of the match until he missed a moonsault and X-Pac capitalized with a spinning heel kick

Bradshaw Vs Savio Vega

Bradshaw dominated for the most part, but a funny thing happened a few minutes before the end. Bradshaw had Vega in a small package and the ref began counting, but before he could hit three he stopped! Obviously, Savio was SUPPOSED to lift his shoulder up, but he forgot! The ref waited a few seconds and shouted "his shoulder was up!" A few seconds later, Bradshaw rolled up Vega again and this time, got the victory.

Jackyl/The Edge

The Jackal came out doing his usual speech about how he made Winnipeg famous and how lucky we were to have him in our presence. The Edge appeared in the rafters, and Jackyl began badmouthing him. Edge decended from the steps, got into the ring, only to be slapped by the Jackyl impressed, The Edge speared The Jackyl and beat on him for several minutes before returning to the locker room. Jackyl left the ring to the chant of "loser".

LOD 200O Vs DOA

This match was only a few minutes long, but Paul Ellering made an impact as his briefcase hit on Hawk's head led to a DOA victory.

Scorpio Vs Marc Mero

Mero was in control for the most part...that is, until Sable appeared. The distraction worked like a charm yet again as 2 Cold got the victory and shook Sable's hand before leaving. Jaqueline and Sable traded words before the blonde left to one of the biggest pops of the night.

Owen Hart Vs Ken Shamrock

Owen beat Shamrock for about 95% of the match. Boston crabs, leg into ringpost, spinning heel kicks...you name it, Owen used all his arsenal tonight. But as he was going for the Sharpshooter, Shamrock reversed it into his leglock submission and got the victory.

Jeff Jarrett Vs Steve Blackman

Blackman jobbed again as Tennessee Lee held his leg down as Double J scored the victory.

Vader Vs Marc Henry

Dubbed "The Battle of the Bulge", this was actually one of the better matches on the card. Each man used their weight to crush the other throughout the match, but in the end, chair shots by each caused a double disqualification.

Rocky Maivia Vs Road Dog Jesse James

Hmmm...yes, Hunter was supposed to wrestle The Rock, but for some reason, it didn't happen. This was a very good match with both men putting on a great show....except for one small thing. As both men were coming off the ropes, Maivia attempted a leap frog over Road Dog's head, but jumped too soon. He landed right on Jesse James' head and both men went down, James clutching his head and Maivia grabbing his crotch. Both men looked to be in legitimate pain for a few seconds and the referee made it up to an eight count before both stirred and got up. After the ref banished both the Nation members and Chyna from ringside, Maivia connected with the People's Elbow and the Rock Bottom in scoring the clean victory.

Kane Vs The Undertaker

You know, the light show is REALLY poor if it's not on TV! Nonetheless, Undertaker and Kane put on a good show in the main event (which, by the way was supposed to be Stone Cold Steve Austin Vs Mankind but both were declared 'injured' by Howard Finkle prior to bell time. It appeares as though the WWF is giving these two some well deserved time off). After a vicous chokeslam, the Undertaker went for a pin against his half-brother but Paul Bearer ran into the ring and pulled the 'Taker off his son. As Bearer argued with ref Hebner, the Undertaker booted him out of the ring and Tombstoned Kane scoring the victory.

All in all, it was a pretty decent house show considering the talent on hand. It looks as though Winnipeg will be vying for a pay-per-view event in the near future.
