Into the Wrestling Vault: 5/7/10 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.

Time to come clean, my original plan was to chronicle the entire rise and downfall of the Two man Powertrip week. Unfortunately, the best laid plans never quite come to fruition. If everything had gone according to plan, you would be seeing the Kane vs Triple H (for IC Title) match from Judgement Day. In the match, Triple H ending up losing the Intercontinental Championship, because Stone Cold's mistake, and it marked the beginning of the end for the Two man Powertrip. On Saturday, you have gotten to see Undertaker vs Stone Cold Steve Austin from the same PPV.

It's too bad I couldn't find the links to either one of those matches, since I never got to tell a somewhat chronological story about the rise and fall of the Powertrip. However, I did find the link to the Two Man Powertrip's last match together, and what a match it was. In my not so humble opinion, I think this is the best Tag Team match in the history of Raw. What adds tot he allure of this match is the fact that Triple H tore his quad (first time) during the match, but still finished it out. As much as I don't like him, you have to respect the guy for gutting it out and finishing the match especially since he wasn't scheduled to bury anyone. The injury signaled the end for one of the greatest Tag Teams of all time. RIP Two Man Powertrip.... You will always be missed.
