Stunning win for Stone Cold


By GLENN COLE -- Toronto Sun
  It took more time to build the steel cage for the Fatal Four Way main event -- 15 minutes -- than the combatants spent in it at the SkyDome yesterday.

The Undertaker, Kane, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin spent much of the first four minutes brawling outside of the ring much to the delight of those on hand for the World Wrestling Federation matinee event.

The Rock spent most of his time battling Kane while the Undertaker, wrestling in a T-shirt and jeans because his luggage was lost at the airport, was trading blows with Austin.

At one point Austin, Kane and the Rock turned on the Undertaker, but in the end it was Austin who took care of business, delivering a Stone Cold Stunner on The Rock in the 13th minute while the 'Taker and Kane battled up the ramp to the dressing room.

Interestingly, The Rock, who was booed the first couple of times he appeared at the SkyDome, received a huge ovation from the fans. While it was not as great as that given Austin, it was close.

The match sent most of the fans home in a good mood after a card which struggled to get going with three mediocre matches which saw the Legion of Doom lose again (sigh!) to the Disciples of the Apocalypse; Tiger Ali Singh pin Al Snow and a repackaged Steven Regal top Steve Blackman.

It seemed the preliminary boys were anxious to get their matches out of the way as they had to shuffle off to Buffalo for a card last night. This afternoon they are in Montreal before travelling to Ottawa for a card this evening at the Corel Centre.

The best match of the first half featured Too Much -- Brian (Too Sexy) Christopher and Scott (Too Hot) Taylor -- losing to the bizarre duo of Gangrel and Christian. Christopher's dad, Jerry (the King) Lawler, would have been proud of his offspring's in-ring antics with Taylor as the two light heavyweights drew loud hoots from the crowd of 15,000.

Meanwhile, Sable and Edge teamed up to defeat Marc Mero and Jacqueline; the New Age Outlaws used their quickness and smarts to take care of the much heavier D-Lo Brown and Mark Henry; and X-Pac conked Jeff Jarrett on the head to win the guitar-on-a-pole match.

Ken Shamrock, who was booed heavily, bested Mankind in a Toronto street fight which looked more like a stroll down Yonge Street.

About the only time the world's most dangerous man drew a positive reaction was after he body slammed ring announcer Jason Sensation before dumping the annoying impersonator out of the ring.

The next WWF card in Toronto is Monday, Feb. 8 for a Raw Is War show. Bell time is 7:30 p.m.
