Match Observations:

Tragedy struck the world of wrestling at 8.15 pm when Vader power-bombed the
Undertaker. Mark Calloway landed wrong taking bump and broke his back in the
process. According to to those who have spoken with the Undertaker's doctors, a
comeback sometime in the near future is considered impossible. There is very
high a chance he will never wrestle again.

On the other side of the fence, Chris Benoît is riding high after winning the IC
title from a devastated Dean Malenko. Ted DiBiase immediately asked Benoît for a
rematch, which he accepted. As Dean Malenko started smiling again, Benoît told
him: "You want my title back ? This time, buddy, you'll have to play by my
rules - submissions only ? Fuck you ! Either you sign for a regular match or you
won't ever get a title shot again. Now we're fighting in MY backyard."

Lex Luger seems to be back on his way to the top. Yokozuna was step one, Rude
step two. Who's next ?

It is no secret that Bam Bam Bigelow has some unfinished business with Vader,
since Vader never managed to beat him and has ducked him ever since their draw.
Does this look to be a probable WrestleMania main event or what ?

Maybe it won't as Bret Hart and Luger also may have something to say about that.
See you in 30.
