LG: "And his opponent, being led to the ring by 'The American Dream' Dusty Rhodes and representing Dusty's Dream Team, from Chicago, IL, weighing in at 450 lbs., THE ONE MAN GANG!"

Crowd boos.

Gang squashes Stasiak and finishes with the 747 splash at 2:30.

LG: "Here is your winner, THE ONE MAN GANG!"

OMG's stablemates, the Nasty Boys and Crush, come out and join in a post-match beatdown. Then the JWL-Tron lights up with an image of Paul E. Dangerously.

Paul is in a gymnasium.

PAUL: "Last week, I announced that I would be bringing my Dangerous Alliance to the JWL. I said that I would be bringing elite athletes, who stand in decided contrast with the has-beens and no-talents in Dusty's Dream Team. With that in mind, allow me to introduce the first member of the Dangerous Alliance. He is a true athletic phenomenon. He was an NCAA Champion with the University of Minnesota. The youngest WWE World Heavyweight Champion ever. I give you...

BROCK LESNAR!"

"That's right, the monster, the Next Big Thing, BROCK LESNAR, is coming to the JWL. I'd just like to show everyone what BROCK LESNAR can do."

We see clips of Brock's path of destruction through WWE.

PAUL: "This goes out as a warning, not just to Dusty and his so-called 'Dream Team,' but to everyone in the JWL. Brock Lesnar is just the beginning. We will make the JWL more DANGEROUS!"

Rhino attacks Taker from out of nowhere. Rhino stomps Taker and gores him into the ring steps. Rhino then grabs a mic.

RHINO: "YOU CAN'T BEAT ME UNDERTAKER! YOU CAN'T BEAT ME!"

Having made his point, Rhino leaves.

Charlie and EZ aren't happy, but leave without incident.

Molly and Thug put on an exciting, well-worked match, with Molly using her speed and technical skill to counter Thug's size, power and brawling style. Both women get several near-falls. Molly hits a Swinging DDT and finishes with the Molly-Go-Round at 9:00 to retain.

We'll be singing
When we're winning
We'll be singing

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down

Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away

He drinks a vodka drink
He drinks a lager drink
He drinks a cider drink
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him
Of the better times:

"Oh Danny Boy
Danny Boy
Danny Boy..."

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down

Pissing the night away
Pissing the night away

He drinks a whisky drink

We come back to see Joey Styles attempting to interview Al Snow and Ken Shamrock about their main event match tonight against Shawn Michaels and HHH.

AL (talking to Head): "I know that we're the underdogs. But you saw Steve Blackman make Shawn tap out. They can be beaten. Hall and Nash? You see how slow they are. By the time they got to the ring the match would be over. We can do this! Man, sometimes you are just so pessimistic. (Turns to Joey) So, Joey, what were you asking again?"

SHAMROCK: "Shawn Michaels, HHH, we will make you tap!"

Back to the ring.

JWL World Tag Team Title: The Faces of Fear (w/"The Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan) © vs. High Standards (Kurt Angle and Christopher Nowinski, w/Mr. Bob Backlund)

LG: "The following tag team contest is for the JWL World Tag Team Championship and is scheduled for one fall."

("Pomp and Circumstance" plays)

Crowd boos.

LG: "Introducing first, the challengers. Being led to the ring by Mr. Bob Backlund, at a total combined weight of 491 lbs., from Pittsburgh, PA, KURT ANGLE! And from Watertown, MA, CHRISTOPHER NOWINSKI, HIGH STANDARDS!"

(The Faces of Fear's music plays)

Crowd cheers.

LG: "And their opponents, being led to the ring by 'The Taskmaster' Kevin Sullivan and representing the Dungeon of Doom, at a total combined weight of 610 lbs., from the Kingdom of Tonga, MENG and from the Samoan Islands, THE BARBARIAN, they are the JWL World Tag Team Champions, THE FACES OF FEAR!"

JR tells us that the FOF defeated High Standards to win the belts at JWL WrestleMania I, and that Angle and Nowinski demanded a rematch.

Barbarian and Nowinski start, and Barbarian quickly overpowers the younger Nowinski. Barbarian controls with power stuff, hitting a flying clothesline for 2. Then a powerslam for 2. Nowinski fights back and takes Barbarian down to the mat. Nowinski gets a rolling cradle for 2. Another for 2. Then a belly-to-back suplex for 2. Nowinski tags in Angle, who controls with matwork and submission stuff, putting Barbarian in the face-in-peril role. Barbarian fights back with some more power stuff. Backlund cheats nonstop from the floor, drawing Sullivan's attention. They rant away at each other, finally leading to blows. The managers fight to the back, where refs and officials break up the fight. Back in the ring, Barbarian fights off a double team and makes the hot tag to Meng, who comes in to a huge pop. Meng cleans house, finishing with the Tongan Death Grip on Nowinski to retain at 9:00.

LG: "Here are your winners, and STILL the JWL World Tag Team Champions, THE FACES OF FEAR!"

Main Event: Al Snow (w/Head) and "The World's Most Dangerous Man" Ken Shamrock vs. "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels and HHH

LG: "The following tag team contest is our main event and is scheduled for one fall."

("Break It Down" plays)

Crowd boos.

LG: "Introducing first, representing the Clique, first from San Antonio, TX, weighing in at 237 lbs., 'THE HEARTBREAK KID' SHAWN MICHAELS! And his partner, from Greenwich, CT, weighing in at 246 lbs., HHH!"

"WHAT DOES EVERYBODY WANT? WHAT DOES EVERYBODY NEED? WHAT DOES EVERYBODY LOVE?"

Crowd cheers.

LG: "And their opponents, being accompanied to the ring by Head and representing the Shooters, first, from Lima, OH, weighing in at 234 lbs., AL SNOW! And from San Bernardino, CA, weighing in at 235 lbs., 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS MAN' KEN SHAMROCK!"

Snow and Shawn start. We get some exciting matwork and aerial action for the first few minutes. Snow gets a hiptoss and a dropkick for 2. Snow goes to work on Shawn’s knee, getting some 2 counts off of legbars and leglocks. Shawn fights back with slams and a bulldog, adding a powerslam for 2. Shawn stomps on Snow and tags in HHH, who controls with his knee stuff, putting Al in face-in-peril mode. HHH hits a facebuster and a kneedrop for 2. Al fights back and goes to Head for advice. Based on this advice, Al goes for a backdrop suplex and gets it for 2. Al follows by working over HHH's knee, capitalizing on his history of injuries and nullifying the majority of his offense. Al tags in Shamrock, who goes nuts with big suplexes and submission work. HHH escapes and tags in Shawn, who walks right into a big belly-to-belly suplex for 2. Shamrock dismantles Shawn's leg nonstop, leading into the anklelock for the tapout at 10:00!

LG: "Here are your winners, the team of AL SNOW AND 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS MAN' KEN SHAMROCK!"

HHH objects and attacks Shamrock but Al makes the save with Head.

X-Pac and the New Age Outlaws attack after the match, but Bam Bam Bigelow, Big Van Vader and Norman Smiley make the save, and the Shooters and the Clique brawl to end the show.

End of show.
