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 take you back to Fully Loaded: In Your House 2…

Val Venis vs Double J: Jeff Jarrett…

As the Undefeated Val Venis took on Jeff Jarrett, Double J’s hired help Southern Justice would get involved a number of times but it would be with a quick roll up on a surprised Jarrett that would give the win to Val Venis…

European Champion D’Lo Brown vs X-Pac…

This would not be for the championship as the champion refused to sign up for such a match as it would be only six days before that he would win the championship…

As the war between both factions this superstars would represent would give us yet another great match but it would be with great assist for the Godfather that would see the win go to the champion…

Faarooq & Scorpio vs Bradshaw & Terry Funk…

Just before this match got underway and much to the distress of his tag team partner, Terry Funk would announce that this would be his last match for six months while he “recharged his batteries”.

Scorpio would hit his four-fifty splash for a win over Terry Funk, Bradshaw perhaps a little upset over his partners announcement would go on to snap and attack Funk and even Scorpio and Faarooq when they tried to help…

Vader vs Mark Henry

The battle of the bulls would come not be a fast pace style match up, it was going to be a case of the unstoppable force meeting the unmovable object as this would be a show of strength and power to win this match…

And the world’s strongest man Mark Henry would prove dominate power with his big splash for the win …

New Age Outlaws Issue The Challenge…

Billy Gunn and the Road Dogg crashed the tag team champion’s address to the crowed and attacked Mankind and Kane claiming they don’t care who the champions were they wanted a championship match the very next night on Raw…

Disciples of Apocalypse vs the Legion of Doom…

Skull & 8-Ball (D.O.A) would dominate the match but Hawk and Animal would try to show a united front despite their differences as of late, D.O.A’s manager would think he was officially in this match the amount of times he got involved…

But his persistence would win out as one of his assists would help D.O.A win the match…

Dungeon Match: Owen Hart vs Ken Shamrock…

Set in the Stu. Hart Dungeon were some of the greatest superstars trained this would be a submission match where in the end Owen Hart would use a dumb bell to knock out Ken Shamrock and then (while he had Shamrock in a submission move) use his opponents hand to tap out…

2-out-3 falls Intercontinental Championship Match: Intercontinental Champion the Rock vs Triple H…

This match was originally set up as a champion vs champion match with neither title on the line but with the Rock costing Triple H the European Championship on Raw to D’Lo Brown, the match was changed in penalty of the Rock forcing him to put up his Intercontinental Championship…

This match would have a 30 minute time limit and unlike the first two falls were you can win by pin fall, submission, count out or disqualification, the last fall if needed could only be won with a pin or a submission…

It would be with a big assist my Nation’s member D’Lo Brown attempting to attack Triple H that would allow the Rock to take the first fall…

Yet it would be with the Rock taking out the Ref. that allowed D-Generation-X to respond as Chyna would come in and attack the Rock allowing Triple H to take the second fall…

Controversy would then follow the rest of the match with round one, as Triple H would have a seven second pin on the champ but the Ref. took so long to count the pin the Rock would kick out…

Controversy round two would see Triple H in a pin attempt but the Referee refusing to count signaling that the match was over, yet no one told him and after the refusal of the count only then did the bell ring calling for an end of the time limit and resulting in the bout being a draw…

But war is an ugly thing and it is something that is not denied as the Nation and D-Generation-X would sprint to the ring to continue their long rival hatred of each other if only to show that such a war was not over…

Bikini Contest Jacqueline vs Sable: hosted by the high alert pacemaker himself Jerry “the King” Lawler…

Both ladies would look mighty fine in their respective outfits but the top half of Sables was paint, the crowd loved the cheekiness of such a stunt and declared her the winner…

But such a stunt went against the wishes of Vince McMahon who warned her beforehand so it was no surprise that he would march to the ring and collect Sable (someone’s in trouble)

Tag Team Championship Match: WWF Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin & the Undertaker vs WWF Tag Team Champions Mankind & Kane…

This would be a strange partnership as Steve Austin was due to defend his WWF Championship against his tag team partner the Undertaker at Summerslam…

But Austin would only have one question coming into this match would he have a partner in a 2-on-2 tag match or was he walking into a trap and had to face all three men…

It would appear that the challengers would be on the same page despite the mistrust and hatred between them at one point it seems the Undertaker would not except the tag but when he did he would raise hell and tombstone his brother Kane for the win…

The Undertaker would leave Fully Loaded with both Tag Team Championship belts whilst leaving the WWF Champion alone in the ring, a message perhaps ringing loud and clear – the dead man would see the rattlesnake at Summerslam…

Thus closes the file of Fully Loaded: In Your House 23, the pay per view that would be a corner stone in the story line leading to Summerslam for so many superstars and we will see you all at the Summerslam report…

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
