Into the Wrestling Vault: 5/5/10 or Cinco De Mayo 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.

Yesterday's venture into the wrestling vault dealt with Stone Cold's explanation or non explanation s to why he would join Vince and Triple H. During that write up, I mentioned that Austin joined forces with the evil corporate boss at Wrestlemania X-Seven. However, the Texas Rattlesnake didn't become teammates with The Game until the night after on Raw. The clip below is the th beginning of the Two Man Power Trip. Also of note, this was The Rock's final match in the WWE before he began shooting his role of Scorpion King in the latest movie in the highly successful Mummy franchise. Storyline wise, it was explained as Vince McMahon (in cahoots with the Powertrip) had indefinitely suspended The Rock. This was a brutal and enjoyable Steel Cage match but to quote Paul Heyman this is a night which remembered "for making history" as one fo the greatest Tag Teams of all time was formed.
