McMahon on the brink

By TIM BAINES -- Toronto Sun

The World Wrestling Federation is on the edge of something big -- and its maniacal, diabolical owner Vince McMahon appears to be on the edge of insanity.

McMahon foreshadowed the event on RAW when he suggested he was about to do something wrestlers would regret, fans would regret and even he might regret.

McMahon, with a Jack Nicholson-like twinkle in his eye, had a brilliant performance on Smackdown!

At the end of a long soliloquy, McMahon said: "I'm going to inject the WWF with a lethal dose of poison. If anyone is going to kill my creation, it will be me ... and the nWo."

As WWF co-owner Ric Flair would say ... Whoooo!

Kevin Nash (the former Diesel) and Scott Hall (Razor Ramon) have signed and Hulk "Hollywood" Hogan, is right behind.

Look for Daddy's little girl, Stephanie, to return to her father's side to try to destroy the WWF.

Leading the good guys will be Stephanie's storyline husband and real-life main squeeze Triple H. A split between the two should happen before Wrestlemania.

  • Triple H will meet the WWF champion at Wrestlemania after winning the Royal Rumble, eliminating Kurt Angle last. The third-last competitor in the 30-man, over-the-top-rope competition, was Mr. Perfect, while Austin was eliminated fourth last. The Undertaker was knocked out of contention when he was distracted by Lita and sent over the rope by Tough Enough winner Maven. Deadman Inc. made Maven pay, tossing his head through a popcorn machine. Speaking of The Undertaker, look for Deadman Inc. to feud with The Rock.

  • Rumble results: Chris Jericho over The Rock; Tazz and Spike Dudley over The Dudley Boyz; William Regal defeated Edge for the Intercontinental title, with the help of brass knuckles; Trish beat Jazz and a bloodied Flair pounded McMahon in a street fight.

  • It looks like Mr. Perfect, who at age 43 looks to be in great shape, and Goldust aren't just one-shot wonders. Perfect was assaulted by Stone Cold Steve Austin on RAW, while Goldust cut promos for both RAW and Smackdown!

  • The Godfather is back, but pimpin' obviously ain't easy. He showed up at The Royal Rumble with 12 of his lovely ladies ... but don't call them Hos. The Godfather has restructured his empire and now operates The Godfather's Escort Service, completely above-board, he says.

  • Val Venis threatened to unleash the Big Valbowski during RAW, but also faced the scorn of Austin, who delivered a stunner.

  • The WWF is trying to determine the No. 1 contender to face Chris Jericho at the No Way Out pay-per-view. Angle beat The Rock and Austin defeated Booker T to set up a showdown tomorrow night on RAW.

  • ProWrestling.com suggests Goldust will feud with The Rock early this spring, right about the time The Scorpion King is released.
