Match Observations:

First things first. The fans in attendance were absolutely IN SHOCK when Jim
Cornette turned on Owen Hart, his longtime protege, enabling Justin Bradshaw to
win the WWF Intercontinental Title on his second show in. Owen Hart swore he'll
be getting back at Cornette, although he didn't reveal how.

The Eliminators beat up Rick Steiner backstage, which led to him no-showing the
Steiners' title defense against Kronus and Saturn. Rocko Rock from the Public
Enemy offered the younger Steiner his assistance in return for a title shot on
a later card. Steiner accepted, and the two really kicked some serious butt. The
Eliminators seemed totally off seeing Rocko Rock tag up with Scott Steiner as if
the two had been teaming forever. Kronus and Saturn got their composure back
together towards the end of the match and almost put away Steiner with the Total
Elimination, however Rocko made the save in time, and Steiner put Saturn away
with the Frankensteiner and a handful of tights.

Steve Austin certainly turned some heads when he did what neither Vader, nor
Ric Flair or the Undertaker were able to do despite several attempts each: he
pinned WWF World Champion Eddy Guerrero, and he did it clean in the middle of
the ring to boot ! Guerrero got some revenge when he made Austin submit to a
scorpion deathlock later on, but the psychological damage probably was done.

Guerrero is only a few weeks away from his biggest and most dangerous challenge
to date and goes into the match having lost to a newcomer to the WWF. The odds
do NOT look good.
