How I Would Book… Who Ran Over Stone Cold?

SPOILER ALERT from fifteen years ago, but I think it’s a safe bet to assume that nearly every wrestling fan on earth knows that Rikishi ran over Stone Cold with a car. Even if you were not watching wrestling during the attitude era, the WWE have referenced the storyline several times on WWE YouTube videos, the WWE Network and even on episodes of RAW and SmackDown! Many fans and wrestling experts over the years have criticised the WWF’s decision to have Rikishi be behind the attempted murder of the top wrestler in the company. With that said, are there many other solutions that would have been better than Rikishi? Could I have booked the “Who Ran Over Stone Cold” storyline better than WWE? Well, let’s find out!

Before we dive into the analysis of Rikishi as the culprit, let’s run down the storyline itself from Survivor Series 1999 to Survivor Series 2000.

Stone Cold Steve Austin had been embroiled in a triple threat WWF Championship feud with the champion Triple H and The Rock. A triple threat match was promoted for Survivor Series 1999 and a triple threat match was ended up what we got. Unfortunately, it did not include the Texas Rattlesnake. Triple H provoked Austin during a backstage interview before the match. This led Austin towards the parking lot, where he was ran down by an unidentified assailant.

Austin was sidelined for nearly a year, to take care of actually injuries that he was working with at the time. He returned at Backlash 2000 for a one-off appearance to help The Rock against Triple H and made his full return to the WWF at Unforgiven 2000. He was on a quest to track down the man who had ran him over, even not pressing charges as a means to lure the man out. Austin’s methods of tracking down the attempted killer included interfering in several matches, getting on the bad side of Commissioner Mick Foley. Foley suspended Austin, conducting his own investigation into the crime.

After major suspects like Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kurt Angle and The Rock were called out, Foley eventually got to the bottom of the case. Stone Cold Steve Austin was actually ran over… by Rikishi.

Rikishi, who had not appeared on WWF television yet when Austin was ran down, admitted to the crime. He claimed that he did it for The Rock, as the WWF had been keeping down Samoans like himself and The Rock for years. Austin was getting in the way of The Rock’s success, leading to Rikishi doing what he did. This led to Austin getting his revenge on Rikishi, destroying the big man in a No Holds Barred match and then trying to hit RIKISHI with a truck.

The plot thickened for the Austin mystery, as it would later be revealed that Triple H was secretly the one that had orchestrated the hit-and-run and put Rikishi up to do it.

20001009_rikishi

The biggest problem with the official solution is that it almost seemed like the culprit was too random to be a legitimate suspect. Mick Foley even mentioned it during the reveal that Rikishi wasn’t even in the WWF at the time of the hit-and-run. Therefore, it’s likely to assume that the WWF had no idea who the suspect would end up being when they shot the angle. Rikishi’s initial reasoning  for running down Austin seemed very out-of-place, as it didn’t seem enough of a justification to explain Rikishi going after Austin. Rikishi wanting to help out The Rock could be viable but the whole Samoans being held down story had nothing to do with Austin. Yeah, Austin is one of the most successful wrestlers of all time and is a 100% American. However, it’d still seem odd that Rikishi would resort to murder because of this.

Now obviously, Triple H being thrown in as the mastermind behind of the whole thing did sort of write out this explanation a little. Rikishi still could have theoretically felt how he did about The Rock and the Samoan lineage, but Triple H does give Rikishi more of a valid reason for running down Austin. After all, Triple H was the one that led Austin out into the parking lot and hated his guts. Him getting Rikishi to run down Austin makes a lot more sense than Rikishi doing it for his Samoan lineage.

While Triple H being the mastermind does involve someone that was a big part of the story at the time of the attack, Rikishi played no part in the story at all. Rikishi was a joyful babyface that got over with his dance moves more than his ruthless aggression. There seemed to be no hint of Rikishi possibly having a dark side to him, so him all of a sudden being an attempted murder does seem a bit unfathomable. It’s actually funny when watching back Rikishi’s run ins with Triple H and the McMahon-Helmsley regime in 2000. Rikishi feuded with Triple H, and even faced him for the WWF Championship one time, while secretly having conspired with him to commit attempted murder! Then again, Rikishi running down Austin would explain why Triple H would give Rikishi a title shot in the first place. I guess that was Rikishi’s grand reward.

In a way, Rikishi being the culprit was good for attempting to get over the next big star in WWE. Rikishi did get elevated as a main-event heel but ultimately ended up flopping in that role. Sticking your backside in people’s faces doesn’t exactly come off as an evil thing to do. Considering it’s Rikishi’s rear end though, I guess it kind of is! Rikishi really didn’t work as a badass, monster heel and quickly turned back into a babyface just before the Invasion angle kicked off.

wwf_armageddon_2000_background_no_logo_by_mrawesomewwe-d52n5sv.png

When coming up with an alternative solution, we need to think of people that not only were relevant to the story but were also strong enough to be able to work as a top heel. As much as someone like Kurt Angle being the culprit would make sense, as he would have been someone that would gain from Austin being out of the picture, he would have no real motivation other than that. It’s not like he would have met Austin at the time, as he made his in-ring debut at Survivor Series 1999 itself. As much as fans would believe this to be a fitting irony-pleasing solution, Angle doesn’t work in this role for me.

Then you’ve got to think about the other big culprits that were highlighted as the two prime suspects by Mick Foley. Triple H would have been too obvious of a culprit, even though he wounded up being written into the official solution anyway. Right after Austin was ran down, Vince McMahon immediately accused Triple H and D-Generation X of committing the crime. Him being the culprit would be rather anti-climatic.

The Rock, on the other hand, became the top babyface when Austin wasn’t around. As outlined by Mick Foley, The Rock (as well as Triple H) had the most to gain from Austin being out of the picture. At the time of Austin’s return, The Rock was the WWF Champion. Being the top babyface, his popularity rose to new heights. With The Rock being suspected so heavily leading into the official solution, him also being the suspect would be another anti-climatic reveal. Another reason for the Brahma Bull not being culprit is that the WWF would be passing up on some serious merch sales with The Rock now being viewed as a villain.

Really, we’re looking for someone that you’d least suspect. Someone that had been shown to be sinister enough to pull off devious acts like this in the past. We’re looking for someone that would do something as a means to fulfil a much grander master plan. Who would fill this role? Why it is someone that did feud with Stone Cold Steve Austin in 1999. It is someone that wasn’t actually there at Survivor Series 1999 and was unaccounted for. It was someone that has a history for making his foes rest in peace. The man that should have been the culprit was… the Undertaker.

51092291

This may be a tough pill to swallow. The Undertaker did only come back as a babyface American Badass in May 2000. It would be somewhat of a letdown to see this new babyface run down our beloved Stone Cold. Then again, considering Undertaker would turn heel just a year later anyway, I think we can work a turn into this angle without hurting the Undertaker.

If you think about it, Undertaker is one of the rare people in the Attitude Era that would actually resort to murder so casually. He’s set his brother on fire repeatedly and even hanged Big Boss Man following their WrestleMania 15 Hell in a Cell match. Heck, he’s even faced Steve Austin in a Buried Alive match. I think it’s safe to say that he’d be willing to run over Austin with a corner.

The biggest issue with this is simple, and it’s actually what Kurt Angle mentioned on an edition of SmackDown! when HE was accused of running over Austin. One of the biggest parts of a murder mystery is motive. What’s the Undertaker’s motive? Why would he turn his attentions to Steve Austin? Well I have a question for you in response… why does the culprit’s motivation have to necessarily be focused at the victim? Obviously, some sort of disdain has to be present in order to consider attempting murder and Taker did feud with Austin that same year. However, what if Undertaker’s motivation was not to solely eliminate AUSTIN from the equation. While taking out Steve Austin was an added bonus, Undertaker’s real end-game was to mess with the man that had forced him to leave the WWF. Undertaker’s real end-game was in fact to remove Mr McMahon from power.

In September 1999, Undertaker “left” the WWF after refusing to take part in a Casket match with Triple H. Mr McMahon threatened to take away Undertaker’s spot in the WWF title match at Unforgiven, leading to the Undertaker walking out of the company. Jim Ross specifically stated when Undertaker made his return at Judgement Day 2000 that he was “going after McMahon” when challenging the Faction. Clearly, some hostility still exists between the two men. After all, McMahon losing power in the WWF in 1999 led to the Undertaker losing the WWF Championship and never gaining an opportunity to get it back. This could have been Undertaker’s ultimate revenge, especially after blindly following Vince’s orders when he was the “higher power” of the Corporate Ministry.

corpmininstry

Picture it like this. Mr McMahon was the first one shown to be outraged after Austin was run over… other than Jim Ross I guess. McMahon lashes out at DX following the incident. Knowing how much McMahon hated Triple H at the time and with Triple H’s title match with two other men coming up later that night, obviously Vince would come to the conclusion that DX was behind it. This is the Undertaker being the puppet-master, pulling McMahon’s strings by taking out one of the competitors in the running to dethrone Triple H as WWF Champion. In response, McMahon inserts the Big Show into the WWF Championship match and Big Show wins the title because of Vince. Just prior to his departure from the WWF, Undertaker had been teaming with the Big Show as part of an unholy alliance. It makes perfect sense that Taker would reward Big Show by manipulating events in order to get the title on the big man.

From behind the scenes, Undertaker is causing dysfunction within the McMahon family. Let’s start of with Stephanie, who turned on her dad and aligned with Triple H at Armageddon. Undertaker was the one that had abducted Stephanie, following the orders of Mr McMahon. Little work needed to be done on Taker’s end, with Mr McMahon having pushed Triple H’s buttons by costing him the championship at Survivor Series. McMahon made things personal with Triple H, so Triple H retaliated. Of course, Triple H hatches a master plan with Stephanie. Stephanie wanted to get revenge at her father for the abduction plan from before so she went with the man that Mr McMahon hated the most. Vince is being torn apart as daddy’s little girl has been taken away from him by the enemy.

Undertaker-American-Bad-Ass-645x370-610x370

Shane and Linda would also get involved, leading to the WrestleMania 2000 fatal four way match with the McMahons in every corner. McMahon would be emotionally torn by having to compete with three members of his family. Not a lot can be said about the Undertaker during this period as he really can’t do much else to mess with McMahon until he comes back. Why not have McMahon regain control with Triple H and Stephanie? If he’s in charge by the time Undertaker comes back, Undertaker can be there to personally remove him from power again. At Judgement Day, his crusade with McMahon begins. He attacks him and the McMahon-Helmsley regime during the big Triple H/Rock Iron Man match. His main intentions when he comes back is to fight the regime, oust McMahon from power and win the WWF Championship. At King Of The Ring, The Rock wins the WWF Championship instead of him during a big six man tag team match but it’s not too much of a loss as at least the regime didn’t win. Undertaker will get back at The Rock, which I will get to later.

Following King Of The Ring, Vince left to become a “genetic jackhammer” while Mick Foley took over. It would have been better to say that the beatings from Undertaker, Rock etc. would force him to leave but as long as McMahon is gone. Now Undertaker can try to win back some gold. He does this initially by going after the tag team titles with Kane and then feuding with his brother. Not a lot happens for the Undertaker at this point, but he does get involved in the WWF title picture at Unforgiven 2000. How ironic, considering that he was initially barred by Mr McMahon from getting a title shot at Unforgiven last year. Here’s where I would change things up. Instead of Undertaker failing to win the championship, he wins the title in a fatal four way match also involving the champion Rock, Kane and Chris Benoit. On the very same night that Taker wins the title, Austin makes his return to WWF.

Stone-Cold-Stunner-to-Undertaker

Austin coming back is an unexpected and unwanted situation for the Undertaker. With his title reign only just getting started, Mick Foley and Austin beginning their investigations, and The Rock getting his rematch at No Mercy, how does the Undertaker turn the attention and suspicion away from himself? Why simple. Turn The Rock and Austin against each other. It is suddenly played up by Undertaker and a number of other wrestlers about how The Rock had to most to gain from Austin being ran over. This builds up all the way to No Mercy, where The Rock challenges Undertaker for the WWF Championship. Austin was initially suspended by Mick Foley, but Foley reinstates Austin after getting an anonymous tip that the culprit would reveal himself at the pay-per-view.

Up until the main event, we get no word from the culprit. Nobody comes clean. Ausitn doesn’t hear anything. Then the main-event comes around, with Austin coming down and going crazy. He pulls the referee out of the ring and grabs a chair. He sees and targets Taker, going for a chair shot but accidentally nailing The Rock. Undertaker then hits Austin with a chokeslam. Undertaker takes advantages and retains the title when the referee awakes. Undertaker then picks up a chair and unleashes hell on Austin and The Rock. Undertaker grabs the mic and laughs. He then asks the question of who had the most to gain from Austin being run over. He simply replies by saying “me” and that Austin’s search was over. Undertaker was the one that ran over Austin.

Stone_Cold_vs_Undertaker_-_Buried_Alive

Austin initially challenges Taker for the title at Survivor Series 2000, with it ending in a no contest after Austin takes out Taker in a similar fashion to Triple H in real life. Undertaker retains the title at Armageddon 2000. Then Mick Foley resigns as Commissioner which changes everything. Undertaker would have mentioned in an explanation that he did what he did to remove Austin and McMahon out of the equation and win the WWF title. Now Vince is back and in charge. Therefore, McMahon is going to make Undertaker pay. Undertaker vs The Rock is booked for Royal Rumble, with Vince’s reasoning being to make amends with The Rock after Vince turned on him at WrestleMania 2000. Sure. Whatever works. Undertaker loses the championship following interference from Stone Cold. Stone Cold wins the Royal Rumble itself, leading to No Way Out. Instead of Triple H, Undertaker is the one that faces and beats Stone Cold in a three stages of hell match.

That effectively is when the storyline ends. However, with Steve Austin and Mr McMahon’s alliance after WrestleMania 17, there is a lot more potential with the dynamic of Undertaker, McMahon and Austin. Imagine Stone Cold Steve Austin working with the boss to take out the man that tried to kill him. You could do the Power Trip angle if you’d like, having Undertaker and Kane battle Austin and Triple H. This could also add a lot to the Invasion angle, especially when it comes to Austin and Taker. You could have Austin and Taker initially not trust each and then eventually bury the hatchet (well bury the hatchet as much as you could, considering Taker tried to kill the man). Alternatively, you could have Austin join the Alliance and led the group against the WWF led by the Undertaker. The possibilities are endless.

Or if you’d prefer for the storyline to finish at WrestleMania 17, simply have Undertaker hold the championship all the way to WrestleMania. Austin wins the Rumble and Undertaker is the WWF Champion. This leads to the ultimate showdown in Texas between Austin and the man that ran him over more than a year ago. In the ultimate act of revenge for Undertaker running him over, Austin makes a deal with the devil himself Vince McMahon. McMahon was manipulated by Undertaker for so long, so Vince helped Austin DEFEAT the Undertaker at WrestleMania. The streak and Undertaker’s title reign is ended by Stone Cold Steve Austin.

That about wraps up this edition of How I Would Book. I have to admit, this one was rather fun to write. I’d seen many different solutions but after thinking of a number of different options, Undertaker being the mastermind actually fits in with the storyline well. I’d love to hear of any other alternative solutions from fans so feel free to leave a comment or tweet me @TomRobinson5199. Don’t just do it for me. Do it… for The Rock. Thanks for reading everyone.

EXTREME WARFARE REVENGE: Random Moment – Rob Van Dam On Dan Severn

This was something class that made me laugh looking back! Basically in an old WWF game I did, Rob Van Dam had to work Dan Severn on an episode of RAW. Sadly, Van Dam didn’t take too kindly to former WWF star and UFC fighter Dan Severn working to stiff!

RVD

Hehe! There’s gonna be some backstage heat on that blue chipper Dan Severn!

EXTREME WARFARE REVENGE: WCW 1998 PART 5 – UNCENSORED

Previously on WCW EWR….

Raven finally fulfilled his prophecy and defeated Sting to become the NEW WCW World Heavyweight Champion at Superbrawl. But he didn’t do it alone… he had the help of Sting’s arch-nemesis from a couple of months ago the “Macho Man” Randy Savage. This dawned a new era in WCW as Savage, his manager Sable and The Big Bossman joined forces with Raven and Public Enemy to form the Exiles!

Benoit and Jericho retained the United States and TV Championships respectively. The Outsiders FINALLY won the feud involving themselves, WCW President Ric Flair and Arn Anderson. The Steiners turned heel and began feuding with Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam. The Guerreros started feuding with each other to determine who was the best Guerrero. Hogan beat DDP at the PPV while Mutoh def. Roddy Piper…

 

 

SO… UNCENSORED!

uncensored

Pre-Show – The Big Bossman and Perry Saturn def. Chris Benoit and Jushin Thunder Liger

As much as I’d hate to put my United States Champion in the pre-show, Benoit at this time never had a feud. He had just wrapped up his feud with Randy Savage (which he won) and Savage was feuding with DDP. So I figured why not team him with Jushin Thunder Liger (who, as you know, has history with Benoit on my game) and put them against two members of the Exiles. The Big Bossman (who started off as the bodyguard of Savage) and Perry Saturn, who I had just resigned after firing him and put him with the group. Saturn got the victory in this pre-show and he and Bossman gained overness which is good news for the stable. For those of you unsure about where this leaves Benoit, don’t worry. Big plans were in place for him…

 

Match 1 – The Steiners def. Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam, and the nWo’s Curt Hennig and Bam Bam Bigelow to become the number one contenders for the WCW Tag Team Championship

The Steiners and RVD/Mysterio both continued to give me good ratings for their feud and I figured why not shot in another team in there and make it a three-way match at Uncensored? Bam Bam and Hennig had become a tag team within the nWo so they were selected. I decided to make this for a WCW Tag Title shot and the Steiners went over on RVD/Mysterio because they’re feuding. Also, RVD/Mysterio beat the Steiners at our last PPV, so I had to give the Steiners the win here. They never won the tag titles though when they had their title shot on Nitro…

 

Match 2 – Eddie Guerrero def. Chavo Guerrero in a Falls Count Anywhere match

The ending to the feud between the Guerreros. After months of costing each other matches and trying to prove their superiority, these two finally settled things once and for all at Uncensored. Eddie got the win and had a HUGE feud coming his way! This match got 100% match quality which I was thrilled with but I kinda wanted a higher overall… 😦

 

Match 3 – Keiji Mutoh def. Rowdy Roddy Piper

I don’t remember this being the feud-ending match, and I think I ended it a couple of weeks later on Nitro. Either way, Mutoh still won the match and the feud. I didn’t really give Piper any big wins in this feud but I really wanted Mutoh and his faction to go over.

 

Match 4  – The Outsiders (c) def. Big Show and Booker T in a Cage Match to retain the WCW Tag Team Championship

The end to a very short feud which started right after The Outsiders beat Flair and Anderson at Superbrawl. Being the two biggest faces available for a feud, Show and Booker were put together for a short but good feud for the tag titles. These two had tagged before so it made sense. However, they were never going to win the belts or the feud. The Outsiders retained but these teams gave me some surprisingly good ratings in the feud.

 

Match 5 – Diamond Dallas Page def. Randy Savage

So yeah, this feud was a very successful one. This was the first one-on-one match of the feud between the Exiles’ Savage and DDP. DDP got the win CLEANLY in the match between the two which kept DDP’s overness up after he lost the feud to Hollywood Hogan. By the way, I legitimately tried to have DDP go over in the feud with Hogan but Hogan’s Creative Control messed up those plans. So I made it up to DDP by giving him the first win in the feud with Savage. Joint-second highest rating of the show for this match and things only got better from here!

 

Match 6 – Hollywood Hogan def. Ric Flair (If Ric Flair won, the nWo would disband. If Hollywood Hogan won, Ric Flair would be removed as WCW President)

This was a high-stakes match as the Hogan/Flair feud began. WCW President Ric Flair was on a crusade to end the nWo and had been feuding with the Outsiders before this. Hogan took a stand against Flair by attacking him the Nitro after Superbrawl. Flair responded by firing Hogan, but Hogan was brought back by Eric Bischoff. Hogan and Flair fought at Uncensored with big stakes. If Flair won, the nWo would be history. If Hogan won, Flair was done as WCW President. Hogan won the match after interference from Bischoff, who took charge of the show after Flair’s dismissal. However, Flair was nowhere near done with Hogan and Bischoff…

 

Match 7 – Chris Jericho (c) def. Bret Hart via disqualification to retain the WCW Television Championship

If Screwjob was an option in this game, I would have ended this match like that. Here’s the situation. I wanted Jericho to win the feud tonight but I didn’t want Bret to lose overness by losing clean. I had done Jericho retaining the title by interferences, count outs etc so many times. So I decided to have Bret Hart get DQ’d by the referee after hitting Jericho with the belt. Bret would get pissed and be like “THIS IS BULLSHIT!” and proceed to attack the referee. This would be the last match in the feud and it ended with a bang… 95% OVERALL! 100% MATCH QUALITY! I think it’s safe to say this feud was a success because both Bret and Jericho had 100% overness after it!

 

Match 8 – Raven (c) def. Sting in a Last Man Standing match to retain the WCW World Championship

This was the highly-anticipated rematch between former champion Sting and the reigning champion and Exiles leader Raven for the WCW Title. These two ended their feud here and I wanted them to go all out with some kinda screwy finish in which Raven retained. I know I’ve done a number of interferences in this card but this one needed an interference. I was going to have Savage interfere, but he had already interfered in the Superbrawl match. So I instead made a major swerve… I had Eddie Guerrero interfere! Eddie was highly-over at this point and he had wrapped up his feud with Chavo. So why not have him target Sting? Eddie wasn’t going to be joining the Exiles, but him and Sting was going to be fun to watch!

88% overall and this PPV might have been my highest PPV at that point. Fun fact. We were competing against Wrestlemania on the same day and we WON the buy-rate wars! Uncensored beat the WWF’s flagship PPV! HAHA!

Uncensored ended a bunch of feuds and we had a couple of exciting feuds on the way and some title changes at our next PPV, which I believe was Spring Stampede! So stay tuned!

The Worst Idea I’ve Ever Had For A Storyline!: War Of Justice – WWE vs WWF

Alright guys. I’m back and I feel that this has to be shared… because it’s so bad!

Before I upload another highlight video blog onto this site (video’s up on YouTube so all systems ago) I have to show you guys what I found on my computer. This was something that I MYSELF wrote as an idea for a WWE 13 storyline which I was going to do and upload to Community Creations and luckily… I never did it. I had just unlocked all of the Attitude Era guys on the game and I was going to do a storyline where the WWF’s best would take on the WWE’s best in a major invasion storyline. Already sound’s crazy! I found this on my computer and I will let you guys see how bad of a booker and writer I was! This was set in 2013 just before Royal Rumble 2013 by the way. The guys in capitals are who you were supposed to play as. It’s called…

That’s all I got to!

You know when the storyline ends with CM Punk kidnapping Vince McMahon, that you’ve got one fucked up storyline! I honestly don’t remember writing this but it says on top of the document “Idea For WWE 13” so it must have been thought up by me sometime after I got the game for Christmas. I don’t remember if I was just incredibly drunk when I thought to myself “Hey. Let’s do a time-travelling storyline and put it on Community Creations” or if I had just watched WCW 2000 non-stop for 10 hours. I really don’t get how this idea came to be!

I really don’t get why it’s called War Of Justice either!

 

This was by far the worst storyline I have ever written. I’m no Vince Russo like. I can’t put together masterful wrestling storylines like him, but good this was even worse than anything you’ve ever seen before!

 

Anyway… coming up will be the next video highlights blog post. I’ll give you a hint… one of the greatest triple threat matches of all time! In the meantime, check out my Bobby Roode vs James Storm highlights!
