Austin, Triple H getting caning from brothers
By MR. X -- Ottawa Sun
Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H are fast becoming a wrecking crew in the WWF.

They steamrolled their way to the tag-team championships by defeating Kane and The Undertaker at last Sunday's Backlash pay-per-view. They followed that by battering Kane's arm and pounding The Undertaker the following night on Raw. But, finally, there was some payback.

The Undertaker took out his frustration on Austin during Smackdown. Stone Cold was left with "glass in his eye" and was loaded into an ambulance. The driver turned out to be The Undertaker, again bad news for Austin.

One of the highlights of Backlash was Shane McMahon's death-defying leap from the top of a tower onto The Big Show. While McMahon didn't fully hit his mark, the jump was still an amazing piece of bravery. Shane won the Last Man Standing match.

Other matches saw: William Regal defeat Chris Jericho with plenty of help from the Duchess of Queensbury rules; Rhyno retain his hardcore title over Raven; Chris Benoit over Kurt Angle in overtime in a 30-minute submission match (it was tied 3-3 at the time limit) in what was one of the best bouts of the year; Matt Hardy retain his European title over Christian and Eddie Guerrero.

  • Guerrero came to Matt Hardy's rescue during Smackdown. What's up with that?

  • The WWF is preparing Chyna for a heel turn.

  • Rikishi returned to action on Smackdown with a loss to The Undertaker.

  • Hulk Hogan has been meeting with Universal in hopes of putting together a wrestling promotion possibly to be aired on Fox.

  • The WWF has announced its list of wrestlers who so far have been retained from WCW: Mike Awesome, Lance Storm, Elix Skipper, Sean O'Haire, Chuck Palumbo, Mark Jindrak, Shawn Stasiak, Stacey "Miss Hancock" Keibler, Hugh Morrus, Chavo Guerrero Jr., Lash LeRoux, The Wall, Shane Helms, Shannon Moore, Evan Karagias, Jamie Knoble, Kaz Hayashi, James "Yang" Yun, Jason "EZ Money" Jett, Mike Sanders, Allen "Kwee Wee" Funk, Johnny the Bull, Reno and Kid Romeo.

  • The WWF is hot on the trail of former ECW star Rob Van Dam, according to Rick Scaia's Wrestleline report.

  • Despite a couple of setbacks, the WWF is remaining quietly optimistic it can re-launch its WCW product on TV, June 16 on TNN. A more likely scenario is an early September start.

  • The Rock's string of 42 straight pay-per-view appearances ended last Sunday. Edge, who had a streak of 24 shows, was also missing from action.

  • Jerry Lynn won the light heavyweight title on Heat.
