WWE Pay Per View Classics

Thought out the history of the WWE the fans have come to wittiness many evolutionarily moments, superstars have come and gone… main event players taken though injury others though retirement and then there are those who were cut down in their prime…

Championships that have stood for decades, held by true champions gone as new championships took their place…Matches that have always been there…replaced of those of high danger levels with riskier moves…

So each week we take a look back at the past pay per views and show the results of some of the most incredible rivalries on some of the greatest stages in some of the most beautiful arenas around the world…

(The above post will always stay the same but for each post the following of course will be different)

We now take you back to the days of the corporate ministry where the new WWF Commissioner would try to leave his mark not once but twice…we welcome you to WWF Rock Bottom: In Your House 26  

The Match: Tag Team: Val Venis & the Godfather vs D’lo Brown & Mark Henry:

With divas in every corner a big assist has to be given to Jaqueline who make the distraction for Mark Henry to pin Val Venis…

The Match: Tag Team: Headbangers (Mosh & Thrasher) vs the Oddities (Kurrgan & Golga):

The Oddities would have the advantage in this match with their size and power but this alone would not prove enough as Mosh got a quick pin over Golga for a major upset victory…

The Match: Owen Hart vs Steve Blackman:

In a hard hitting brawl with in which Own Hart hitting an exposed turnbuckle he himself made that way but rallied back to hit Blackman with his dragon sleeper.

But Blackman would hit back and in Owens own home town Blackman applied Owens own submission maneuver the sharp shooter this would be all the insult Owen Hart would allow as he walked back to the locker room intentionally getting himself counted out…

The Match: Six Person Tag Team: the Job Squad (Al Snow, Bob Holly & Scorpio) vs. the Brood (Gangrel, Edge & Christian):

It would be the strange taking on the supernaturally bizarre in this fast pace match up as the newly formed team the Brood would pick up their first victory when Christian pinned Scorpio…

The Match: a Striptease Match: Jeff Jarrett vs Goldust:

With a stipulation in the match that if Jeff Jarrett took the victory then Goldust would have to strip but if Goldust was to come away with the win then it wouldn’t be Jeff Jarrett but his assistant Debra that would “bare” all…

Goldust would have the match won but with a timely distraction from Debra the ref never saw the pin, and with several pin attempts each the crowd were firmly in the corner the bizarre one, all hoping for a “gold” victory…

Debra would even go so far as to hit Goldust with Jeff Jarrett signature guitar aiding Jarrett to pick up the win but the new commissioner Shawn Michaels would take exception to this, reversing the decision, disqualifying Double J and giving Goldust the win coursing Debra to bare all much to the delight of everyone even Debra who was warming to the attention quickly…

But Jarrett would storm to the ring as she was more than half way home as they say to cover up his assistant and take her to the back…

The Match: Tag Team Championship: Tag Team Champions the New Age Outlaws vs the Hardcore Champion the Big Boss Man & the Intercontinental Campion Ken Shamrock:

With four title holders in the match, two in which had the chance to leave at the end of the night as double champions the challengers would dominate the match…

Of course it helps immensely when you have the new commissioner Shawn Michaels in your corner and it would seem that time and the numbers were catching up with the champions…

Michaels would go so far as to distract the ref as the Big Boss Man would go to work with his nightstick but the tag team champions would not be denied as Billy Gunn would roll up Shamrock for a quick pin to not only retain their championships but foil the plan of the commissioner for a second straight time…

The Match: WWF Championship: WWF Champion the Rock vs Mankind:

The Rock would go into this match with a disadvantage thanks to an attack from Mankind during an interview, the rules of the match stating that if the champion was unable to compete for any reason then the championship would change hands and with such damage done the Rock’s ribs would have Vince visiting Mankind’s “office” to try to the get the match thrown out…not…going…to….happen…

But with Vince and Shane in the champ’s corner it would be more of a 3-on-1 handicap match then a 1-on-1, Vince would even go so far as to call for a disqualification against Mankind for a legal maneuver forcing Mankind to take out the Ref. and time keeper to keep the match going…

The plan almost went belly up as Shane clocked the Rock with the Championship belt whilst aiming for Mankind but the deranged one would not be denied as Vince and Shane looked lost as the Rock would pass out to the Mankind’s submission giving him the win and coveted WWF Championship…

As the crowds would raise the roof in cheer for Mankind’s victory, Vince was looking for anything to get the title back to the now recovering former champ and lo and behold he would find a way…

Stating that in order for a championship to pass hands one would have to get a victory by either pin or submission meaning the latter of the two one would need his “victim” to tap out not pass out…

Vince was gracious to give Mankind the win but as the Rock was never pinned or tapped out he was still the champion

The Match: Buried Alive: Stone Cold Steve Austin vs the Undertaker:

This would be a must win for the rattlesnake as a victory would guarantee him an entry, a coveted spot in the following month’s Royal Rumble…

And it would appear that the Undertaker would cost him the chance only for someone who perhaps hates the dead man more than the rattlesnake to come to his aid…

Kane still upset over the vile and abrupt parting of the ways would come and tombstone his brother allowing Austin to win the buried alive match and as Austin 3:16 says he’s going to the Rumble…

Thus closes the classic file of Rock Bottom: in your house pay per view that which would a corner stone for the story line leading up to WrestleMania…

Been a fan of the WWE since 2000, watched a few from the early years online, wasn’t a fan of where the “Powers that be” were taking the company but it has gotten better with the brand split, I thought that it was a format that worked
