Match Observations:

Nothing really has been settled between Masato Tanaka and David Finlay. They
will surely meet again.

Speaking of meeting again, is it just me or do the new WWF World Tag Team
Champions Bret Hart and Val Venis have their work cut out in the form of
Steve Williams and Stan Hansen ?

Former Intercontinental Champion Hayabusa and former World Champion Al Snow
showed perfect chain wrestling in their encounter, and Hayabusa was able to
tie their match series at 1:1.

The Horsemen just plain don't get it, do they ? How often does Chris Benoit
have to tell them he wants no part of their organization before they stop
bugging him ? The question that remains is: what are the Horsemen up to ? What
was it with their big smiles ?

The Undertaker regained the Brawl For All title from Ken Shamrock, however
Shamrock has already made it clear that he wants to fight the Undertaker one
more time at the Survivor Series.

Once again, Rocky Maivia was instrumental in costing Hollywood Hogan an
important match. This time around, it was Shawn Michaels who gave Hogan all he
can handle and then some. Yet, once again The Rock made the difference between
victory and defeat.

Chris Benoit managed to regain the WWF title tonight, and he's already looking
forward to the WarGames match at the Survivor Series. Bran Christopher issued
a challenge to Benoit which he accepted almost immediately. This match will take
place on RAW the night after Survivor Series.

Speaking of the Survivor Series... this is the official card:

* The Horsemen will face WWF Champion Chris Benoit, the WWF World Tag Team
Champions Bret Hart and Val Venis and WWF Intercontinental Champion Kendo Ka
Shin in WarGames. Who will the fourth Horseman be ? We will find out shortly.
* Hollywood Hogan will team with Steve Williams, Stan Hansen and the returning
Rick Steiner against The Rock, Cactus Jack, Sabu and Dan Severn
* Hayabusa's team consisting of himself, Brian Christopher, Dave Finlay and
Jyushin Lyger will square off against Al Snow, Masato Tanaka, Shinjiro
Ohtani and Kensuke Sasaki.
* The Undertaker and the three Dudleys will take on the explosive team of
Shawn Michaels, Rob Van Dam (filling in for the injured Ken Shamrock) and the
debuting tag team of D-Lo Brown and Mark Henry.

Ken Shamrock has made it clear, BTW, that he will be at the Survivor Series as
well in some capacity. So will we. See you then !
