The Rock cooks


By TY PILSON -- Calgary Sun

 11,652 wrestling fans can't be wrong ... the WWF still rules in our town!

 In the first match of last night's Attitude extravaganza, Bradshaw -- one half of the Acolytes -- beat Bull Buchanan after the big man was disqualified when his mentor, The Big Bossman, cranked Bradshaw with his night stick.

 Dean Malenko defended his Light Heavyweight Championship, forcing challenger Crash Holly to tap out after slapping him in a submission hold.

 In a three-way elimination match for the Tag Team Championship, defending champions Edge and Christian kept the belts by defeating challengers Too Cool -- Scotty Too Hotty and Grandmaster Sexay -- as well T&A -- Test and Prince Albert -- who were accompanied to the ring by the buxom Trish Stratus.

 Stratus, a Torontonian and former fitness queen, took some shots at Calgary, but her physical appearance seemed to keep the crowd on her side.

 The British Bulldog Davey Boy Smith had a victorious return to Calgary beating the Lethal Weapon Steve Blackman. The Bulldog made the crowd wait a bit before he came down to the ring, receiving an expected thunderous applause and after getting in a few pose-downs with Blackman, finished the match with his trademark running bodyslam.

 Rikishi Phatu made short work of former U.S. Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle, getting a little help from Too Cool who came in to intercept Edge and Christian who were apparently at ringside to help out Angle.

 Kane made his return to the WWF in a surprise bout with the Big Bossman. Kane choke slammed Bull Buchanan and then the Bossman to win the match.

 Eddie Guerrero, accompanied to the ring by the Ninth Wonder of the World Chyna, beat Perry Saturn to retain his European Championship.

 The biggest applause of the night was saved for the Rock, who, along with the Dudley Boys, squared off against Triple H, Road Dogg and X-Pac of Degeneration X.

 The former WWF champion -- who once tried out for the Stampeders -- was treated to a hero's welcome. Fittingly, The Rock 'laid the smack down' on Triple H to earn a glorious win.
