Into the Wrestling Vault: 5/4/10 Edition

Both Johnny C and I have made our hatred and dismay over the Linda McMahon induced PG-Era and overall state of wrestling well known. We firmly believe that wrestling was far better in the 90's and early 2000's. In fact, even the mid 2000's are much better than the horseshit that is shoved down our throats these days. Consequently, it's no surprise that both John and I have burned countless number of hours looking up old matches, and promos on Youtube, Daily Motion, and the dozens of other websites which host wrestling videos. Now that we have turned ourselves into fancy men (with our own blog) we figured to turn all those wasted hours into blog posts. So join us as we delve into the Wrestling Vault to relive our favorite videos.

I know I haven't done one of these for a while, and hopefully that will change in the near future. However, last Night's Raw forced my hand into visiting the wrestling vault. During the Cutting Edge segment, Edge made a reference to one of my favorite (yet underrated) Tag Teams of all time: The Two Man Powertrip. As much as I have gushed in the past about the awesomeness of the Powertrip, I was still taken aback by a WWE superstar actually making a reference to something from 9 years ago. I feel as if this moment needs to marked by something special, which is why we are to take a look at one of the examples as to why the Two man Powertrip was absolutely badass.

The events in the clips below take place on the Smackdown after Wrestlemania X-Seven. As most of you remember (if you don't, visit the link I posted above) at Wrestlemania X-Seven, Stone Cold Steve Austin did the unthinkable and joined forces with his longtime rival Mr. McMahon. The next night on Raw, those two were joined by Mr. McMahon's son in law Triple H, and together these three formed an unholy alliance which terrorized the WWE (sounds like it came straight out of a comic book). On Smackdown, Austin's longtime best freind Jim Ross sought to find out as to why the Texas rattlesnake had joined forces with his archrival and the man who ran him over with a car. Unfortunately for Ross, the interview didn't go over quite as well as he had hoped in his hometown of Oklahoma City.
