The House Show 24 / 25: Twin Magic – WWF Breakdown and WWF Judgment Day

You can listen but you can’t touch the greatness that is this episode. Events are set up on one pay per view that pay off three weeks later on the next show. Which means The House Show proudly presents to you Twin Magic, a review of both WWF Breakdown In Your House and WWF Judgment Day In Your House!

On the Brie portion of the show, WWF Breakdown: In Your House. Taking place September 27, 1998 at the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario in front of over 17,000 fans. Those fans are there to see the latest chapter in Mr McMahon vs Stone Cold Steve Austin and tonight is a big one. Austin will defend the WWF title against both Kane and the Undertaker, but with a twist! If one triple threat match isn’t enough – there’s two! And the other one is in a steel cage. Ken Shamrock, Mankind, and the Rock battle it out to see who will be the number one contender to face the winner of the other triple threat match. Assuming there is an obvious winner and clear champion of course.

WWF Breakdown matches include:

  • Owen Hart vs. Edge.
  • Al Snow (with Head) and Scorpio vs Too Cool (Brian Christopher and Scott Taylor).
  • Marc Mero (with Jacqueline) vs. Droz.
  • Bradshaw vs. Vader in a Falls Count Anywhere match.
  • D’Lo Brown vs. Gangrel.
  • The Rock vs. Mankind vs. Ken Shamrock in a Steel Cage match to determine a new #1 Contender.
  • D-Generation X (Billy Gunn, Road Dogg, X-Pac) vs Jeff Jarrett and Southern Justice (Mark Canterbury and Dennis Knight).
  • Kane vs. the Undertaker vs Stone Cold Steve Austin. Kane and Undertaker cannot pin each other. If anyone interferes for Austin, he will lose the title.

Then on the Nikki part of the show is the stacked card from WWF Judgment Day: In Your House. Taking place weeks later on October 18, 1998 from the Rosemont Horizon in Rosemont, Illinois in front of over 18,000 fans. A new WWF champion will finally be crowned as the Undertaker faces Kane for the vacant title with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the special referee. These two events features some of the craziest and most memorable Attitude Era twists and turns.

WWF Judgment Day matches include:

  • Al Snow (with Head) vs Marc Mero (with Jacqueline).
  • LOD 2000 (Hawk, Animal, and Droz) vs The Disciples of Apocalypse (8-Ball, Skull, and Paul Ellering).
