  1. Intercontinental championship:
    Hunter Hearst Helmsley (ch) [w/Curtis Hughes] def. Goldust
    Much wrestling took place outside the ring in this powerwrestling match. Goldust knocked Hunter with the IC belt that Hunter had got into the ring, but only got a two count. Hunter could eventually win the match with a pedigree
  2. Ahmed Johnson def. Faarooq [w/Nation of Domination] (DQ)
    Faarooq tried a lot of illegal moves, for one thing he brought a whip inside the ring, but Ahmed got it. The disqualification of Faarooq was because of his gang, Nation of Domination, coming in and starting messing around with Ahmed
  3. Vader def. Undertaker
    Undertaker showed a lot of strength, even surviving a Vaderbomb in the earlier part of the match. Later, Paul Bearer showed up, and when Undertaker was about to attack Paul Bearer, Vader got in between and Bearer could hit the Undertaker with the urn. Vader won the match with yet another Vaderbomb, and then Vader and Bearer left the ring together. The Undertaker chokeslammed the referee after the match, thinking that he should have seen Bearer's outside interference
  4. AAA Six man tagteam match:
    Perro Aguayo, Canek & Hector Garza def. Fuerza Guerrera, Heavy Metal & Jerry Estrada
    As always, the Mexican wrestlers gave a great show of technical and acrobatic wrestling, even though it had a bit too much powerwrestling to really show the Mexicans' superiority in the sport. Even though the match was most entertaining, the audience seemed very uninterested about it

    Rightful winner: Bret "Hit Man" Hart (18).
    However, since the referees didn't see Steve Austin being thrown out of the ring (they had their hands full with getting Mankind out), he was judged as the winner, and was to be given a title shot at Wrestlemania XIII. However, instead of that, a "final four" match was setup at In Your House XIII.

  6. World Wrestling Federation Championship Match:
    Shawn Michaels def. Sycho Sid (ch)
    This was a psychological match with much powerwrestling. Sid had the advantage in the beginning, where he tried to tire Shawn. Shawn came back with air maneuvers, which however were stopped by Sid. When Shawn tried to apply his special move, the "sweet chin music", Sid could stop that too, reversing it into a powerbomb, after which he (again) went for Shawn's manager, Jose Lothario. Shawn stopped him though. Later on, Sid managed to get the referee unconscious, by slamming him with Shawn. He then covered Shawn, but the new referee that came running to the ring only counted to two. Shawn then gave Sid the same treatment he got at Survivor Series '96, that is, he slammed him with a TV camera. Shawn could then, after another "sweet chin music", get a slow pinfall by the newly awakened referee.

WWF European Championship

1997-02-26 (televised 1997-03-01), Deutschlandhalle, Berlin, Brandenburg, Germany
  1. Salvatore Sincere def. Alex "The Pug" Porteau
    The opening bout was a bit boring at start, with both men desperately trying to get the other one to submit to a pin. Sincere could finally get a pin fall after having Porteau in a Full Nelson.

    Between these two matches, German ring-announcer and commentator Carsten Schaeffer, with help of Billy Gunn, awarded a lucky winner with a DF1 digital receiver for the combined DSF/DF1 competition that had run through the Deutschland Xpress Tour.

  2. Doug Furnas & Philip Lafon def. Bob "Spark Plugg" Holly & "Man-O-War" Aldo Montoya
    This match was a true display of sportsmanship from both teams. It was also a display of power wrestling (as often is with the American wrestling in general). Furnas and Lafon won after a Half Nelson followed by a slam.

    Here The Honky Tonk Man arrived, apparently helping out in the American commentator position.

  3. Hunter Hearst Helmsley def. Bret "Hit Man" Hart (dq)
    The audience was definitely on Bret's side, he's said that his German fans are the best, and it seems like that. After a slow start, it showed up to be a match in which Bret seemingly wanted to injure Hunter, working on his leg, for example with a Figure 4 leglock around the ring post. The match ended when Bret had Hunter hanging up-side-down from the ring ropes, and the referee (Earl Hebner) told him to let Hunter go. Bret then pushed the referee away, which costed him a disqualification.
  4. Intercontinental championship:
    Rocky Maivia (ch) def. Vader (dq)
    Even though Vader certainly knew how to throw his weight around, the match was surprisingly even. Vader tried many of his powermoves, but could not get Rocky pinned. In the end, Rocky wanted to end the match with a flying cross-body, but didn't get a pin position. Mankind then entered the ring, and hit Rocky with the urn, which got Vader disqualified.

    In the pause that now followed, we were informed about the most recent developments in the WWF championship ranks. In the arena, one could hear that through the commentators' microphones, Honky Tonk Man was singing (or whatever).

  5. WWF championship:
    Sycho Sid (ch) def. Mankind
    Mankind showed one of his interesting talents, when he gave an interview in German before the match. There, he said that all WWF stars were in "Lebensgefahr" (danger of life), and that "ich bin kein Mensch, ich bin Mankind" (I'm not a human, I'm Mankind). This slow powerwrestling match showed a lot of action outside the ring. Even though Mankind was booed at by the audience, he got the advantage when he applied the Mandible Claw to Sycho Sid, but Sid, in a display of great strength, could get out of it. Sid won the match with a powerbomb.

    Ahmed Johnson was interviewed by Carsten Schaefer, and being asked if he would accept Faarooq's challenge for a match at Wrestlemania XIII. Ahmed accepted, dedicating the match to his German fans, but he said that this time, he wouldn't be alone.

  6. The Sultan def. Flash Funk
    Flash Funk showed off his great techniques, but The Sultan got the advantage with his powermoves. The Sultan won after turning a headscissors into a camel clutch.
  7. Ahmed Johnson def. Leif Cassidy
    Ahmed won the match on a piledriver, followed by a spinebuster, a pearl river plunge and then the pin.
  8. WWF European championship final:
    British Bulldog (tag ch) def. Owen Hart (tag ch)
    The championship final was interesting, since it was between the two tag team champions. British Bulldog was, not unexpectedly, the audience's favourite, but there were a number of Owen fans too. Since they have been wrestling as a tag team, they knew each other's style quite well, which made it a technical match. The Bulldog showed an impressive bow & arrow on Owen. You could see that they were friends, since they didn't do any foul moves, except when Owen faked a leg injury, which made Bulldog quite angry. There were a lot of pin attempts from both wrestlers, Owen applied a sharpshooter on Bulldog, but he got to the ropes, so Owen had to let go. Bulldog won the match on a victory roll, which made him the first ever WWF European champion. Even though there were some heated feelings in the interview that followed, it seems as if they're still friends.

Wrestlemania XIII

1997-03-23, Rosemont Horizon, Chicago, Illinois, USA

Watch on WWE Network.

  1. Four team tag elimination match:
    Headbangers def. Godwinns, New Blackjacks, Doug Furnas / Phil LaFon
    As always with matches with more than two teams, it was a bit messed up at times, but even with that, the Furnas/LaFon team could show off their good wrestling technique. First elimination was a double countout of the New Blackjacks and the Furnas/LaFon team after some brawling outside the ring. The match ended when Headbanger Mosh pinned Phileas Godwinn after a frog splash.
  2. Intercontinental championship:
    Rocky Maivia (ch) def. Sultan
    This match contained of mostly boring power wrestling, where Sultan dominated most of the match. Rocky managed to get a pinfall over Sultan nevertheless. After the match, Rocky was interviewed, when the Sultan attacked him from behind. Rocky Johnson, the father of Rocky Maivia, entered the ring and defended Rocky.
  3. Hunter Hearst Helmsley def. Goldust
    It was an even match with a certain amount of foul play in it. The audience was clearly on Goldust's side. Hunter Hearst Helmsley won the match after a pedigree on Goldust, when he tried to protect Marlena from Helmsley's "manager" Chyna.
  4. Tagteam championship:
    Owen Hart & British Bulldog (ch) vs. Vader & Mankind (2xCO)
    Owen and Bulldog seemed to have gotten past their personal differences they had after their match for the European Championship. There was a lot of action outside the ring, where, for example, Vader attacked Bulldog with the urn. The match ended in a double countout after Mankind and Bulldog jumped out of the ring while Mankind had a mandible claw applied.
  5. Submission match:
    Guest referee: Ken Shamrock (of UFC "shooting")
    Bret "Hit Man" Hart def. Stonecold Steve Austin
    This match was at top speed from the beginning, but it was more a brawl than a wrestling match, with both wrestling resorting to ugly tactics. At some times they were even wrestling out among the audience... Bret Hard worked much on Austin's bad leg, but Austin didn't submit even though he was in pain. The match ended after Bret hitting Austin with the ring gong, after Austin tried to choke him with the microphone cables. Bret got Austin into a sharpshooter, which rendered Austin unconscious. Even though him winning the match, Bret continued attacking Austin, but referee Shamrock stopped him with a belly-to-belly. After waking up, Austin applied a stone-cold stunner to Shamrock.
  6. Chicago street fight:
    Legion of Doom & Ahmed Johnson def. Nation of Domination (Faarooq, Crush & Savio Vega)
    Since this was a Chicago street fight, foreign objects were allowed inside the ring (and outside), and much was used, like, for instance, the french-canadian commentators' table. Crush covered Hawk for the win, after hitting him with a piece of plank.
  7. Championship match:
    Undertaker def. Sycho Sid (ch)
    Bret Hart came into the ring and started humiliating the injured Shawn Michaels who was a commentator, and then continued with Undertaker and Sycho Sid. He said that the title should be his. Sid powerbombed him and called him a cry-baby, and then Undertaker started the real match by attacking Sid from behind.
    Much action took place outside the ring, for example when the Undertaker was slammed against the Mexican commentators' table. Both wrestlers tried to get a quick victory, but none succeeded. Sid almost won the match with a tombstone(!) on Undertaker. Hart once again entered the ring, fighting Sid, which made it possible for Undertaker to win the match.

Summerslam 1997

1997-08-03, East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA

Watch on WWE Network.

  1. Steel-cage match:
    Mankind def. Hunter Hearst Helmsley
    Chyna stopped Mankind from coming out, knocked the referee, and threw in a chair for Hunter to use, but Mankind used it against Hunter, and catapulted him against Chyna who was outside the cage. Mankind then climbed out, almost, but climbed back in and performed an elbow drop from the cage top. Then he climbed out and won the match, even though Chyna attempted to pull Hunter out of the ring. Instead of the Mankind music, the Dude Love (Mankind's alter ego) was played, which made him appear as a totally different person.
  2. Goldust def. Brian Pillman
    Stipulation: If Pillman lost the match, he would have to appear in one of Marlena's dresses on the following Raw is War. Goldust won a pinfall after Marlena interfered.
  3. Legion of Doom def. The Godwinns
  4. European Championship:
    British Bulldog (ch) def. Ken Shamrock (dq)
    Stipulation: If Bulldog lost the match, he would have to eat a can of dog food. Bulldog threw the dogfood in Shamrock's face, which made him very angry. Shamrock replied by hitting Bulldog in the head with the dog food can, which got him disqualified. After the match, Shamrock placed a sleeper hold on Bulldog, and refused to let go. When the officials finally got him to let go of it, he began to do belly-to-belly:s on the officials.
  5. Eight man warfare:
    Los Boricuas (Savio Vega, José Estrada, Miguel Perez, Jesus Castillo) vs. Disciples of the apocalypse (Crush, Skull, Eighth ball, Chains) (no contest)
    A high pace match, with Los Boricuas tagging in and out very often. A bit into the match, the third team, Nation of domination, lead by Faarooq and Ahmed Johnson, showed up, and made the match and in a general brawl between the three groups.
  6. Intercontinental championship:
    "Stone Cold" Steve Austin (tag ch) def. Owen Hart (ch)
    Stipulation: If Stone Cold did not win, he would kiss Owen's ass. This ending of this match was the one of the worst I've seen. Stone Cold was obviously hurt after a pile-driver from Owen, but instead of getting a certain pinfall, he walked around doing nothing at all. After a while, Stone Cold rolled him into a pin situation, which would have been extremely easy for Owen to get out of, if he just had wanted to. (Stone Cold actually suffered a broken neck during this match.)
  7. Championship match: Guest referee: Shawn Michaels:
    Bret "Hit Man" Hart def. Undertaker (ch)
    Stipulation: If Hit Man did not win the title, he would not wrestle in the US again. In the match that everybody knew who would win, we saw a lot of pin and submission attempts from both sides. The obvious ending came when Shawn by mistake had knocked the Undertaker with the chair he had found Bret taking into the ring. Shawn Michaels was planning on hitting Bret with it, since he refused to confirm that he had taken it into the ring while Shawn was knocked outside the ring, and also spit Shawn in the face.

    This was interesting, since the only Canadian on Team Canada was Phil LaFon, but it still was quite an interesting match, with Goldust being counted out because he refused to get into the wring and wrestle, claiming to have a broken arm. Team Canada won the match when Bulldog put Vader out by hitting him with the ring announcer's bell

    Kane seemed to be even more resistant to wrestling moves than the undertaker is. Kane won over Mankind by pinning him after a tombstone
