Cover StoryWRESTLEMANIA IS IN THE BOOKS!
WRESTLEMANIA I RESULTS
Wrestlemania, Madison Square GardenWelcome to the show. Big news is Brock Lesnar is fighting the Rock in the main event for the WWF belt, and Brock has not yet re-signed his new deal with WWF. Brock is expected to re-sign before he heads to the ring tonight. Vince must be sweating bullets."Macho Man" Randy Savage (6 tokens) won the 30 man MITB battle royal, last eliminating Batista. ***
Match was too long. WWF needs to cut this down to 20 men next year as there was a lot of dead weight in there. Match didn't really get going until it was just the superstars in there. Savage earned the W with the most eliminations (6). After the match Macho Man teased cashing in tonight or tomorrow on RAW. Then he changed tunes and said he was holding in his hand the main event of Wrestlemania 2 and would watch the rest of the roster fight each other all year to determine his opponent. Dig it!Demolition Axe (5 tokens) and Smash (3 tokens) defeated the Broken Hardy Boys with DECAPITATOR. ***
Hot opener. Both teams had the match won numerous times broken up by dramatic pin saves. Broken Matt (4 tokens) can't make one last save and Brother Nero (6 tokens) takes the fall. A lot of fans want to see the Broken Hardys vs. The Brothers of Destruction but it looks like Demolition isn't out of the title picture yet. John Cena (5 tokens) submits HBK Shawn Michaels (4 tokens) with STFU. ****
Another incredible match. Both kicked out of each others finishers before HBK was forced to tap. HBK jumped right up after the finish and left ringside looking annoyed as Cena celebrated. After the match Cena told Gene Okerlund to now refer to him as "The New Mr. Wrestlemania". That might have been a shot at Shawn in response to his quick exit.News out of the locker room is that Vince and Brock have still not finalized Brock's new deal. Rumor is Brock is stalling, asking for more $$$. Stay tuned.HHH buries Bret "the Hitman" Hart (4 tokens) w PEDIGREE. *
This was a squash. After months of teasing a long, drawn out and elaborate entrance (which was mocked by Hart), HHH instead jumped out of the crowd during Hart's entrance and attacked Bret with the sledgehammer before the bell. It was over soon after. I guess this confirms the rumors that Bret Hart is not re-signing with WWF when his contract is up after 2 more appearances. This felt like HHH had just run Hart out of the fed. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat (6 tokens) won the WWF INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE defeating the Ultimate Warrior (5 tokens) with a small package. ****1/2
This was a showcase for Warrior for several minutes and looked like it could be a squash before Steamboat made a memorable comeback. Steamboat basically weathered the storm and once Warrior was gassed, Dragon kept trying for the small package and finally got it. After the match Warrior spoke to the IC title in tongues before presenting it to Steamboat and raising his opponents hand in victory. The two hugged then Warrior left ringside and Steamboat celebrated in the ring. Maybe the best match so far. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin pins Bruno Sammartino (2 tokens) after a STONE COLD STUNNER. **
After having awesome build up leading to the match, this was a bit disappointing. Bruno took a brutal stunner only a few minutes into the match and didn't get up. After the match Austin drank beer and celebrated with the fans.
The Brothers of Destruction defeated The Shield to retain the WWF TAG TEAM TITLES. **
Undertaker and Kane (3 tokens) rolled 3 coffins to ringside. Both Moxley (9 tokens) and Black (7 tokens) got stuffed into 2 of them. This terrified Reigns (3 tokens) who froze in fear before taking a TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER by Taker to end the match. This looks like Moxley and Black are headed out of the WWF and back to the Indy circuit as WWF has decided to not re-sign either. Taker tried stuffing Reigns in the 3rd coffin after the match but Roman escapes. Reigns vs. Taker in a singles program looks to be in the mix.Crazy drama before the Hogan - Andre match when Stan "the Lariat" Hansen and Bruiser Brody tried storming the ring from the crowd as Hogan waited for Andre. Madison Square Garden security and the NYPD brawl with Hansen and Brody as Hogan looks on. There must be 30 cops out there. This does not look to be part of the show. Hansen and Brody are going out in hand cuffs. After about ten minutes things finally clam down and an angry looking Andre finally makes his entrance. Andre the Giant (5 tokens) with Bobby the Brain Heenan pins Hulk Hogan (5 tokens) with UNDERHOOK SUPLEX. ****
Bobby Heenan is going crazy at ringside after the W. Hogan looks emotionally destroyed. Hard hitting match that had the fans on the edge of their seats. After the match Hogan wants a handshake from Andre, and Andre almost does it before a crazed Heenan talks him out of it and escorts the Giant winner away. Heenan is adamant that Andre is now done with Hogan and poised for a WWF title shot. The main event is about to go on and word backstage is Brock is refusing to sign his new deal until after the match. Vince must be ready to throw up. Brock Lesnar (2 tokens) destroys the Rock (9 tokens) to win the WWF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT BELT with an F5. **
This was as dominant a victory as you could expect. Rock couldn't match Brock's power and crumbled after multiple F5 slams.After the match Vince McMahon comes out with a contract and a pen for Brock. Brock just laughs and walks off leaving Vince shocked and humiliated in the ring. This better be hype for tomorrow's RAW. If Brock shows up on NITRO with the WWF belt look out.
See you next for Monday Night Wars results!

Breaking News:HANSEN & BRODY BAILED OUT OF JAIL BY MYSTERY MAN.
Stan "the Lariat" Hansen and Bruiser Brody were bailed out this morning after spending the night in a NYC jail cell following their attempt to hijack Wrestlemania and storm the ring from the crowd before the Hogan - Andre match.
Rumors are swirling that the attack was premeditated and designed to injure Hulk Hogan. Furthermore, insiders are claiming Hansen & Brody were hired to take out Hogan. But by whom?
MR. PERFECT HEADED OUT OF THE WWF?
Brock Lesnar and Bret Hart aren't the only WWF wrestlers whose contracts are up. PWI has learned that Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig has a contract that expires today. This is especially interesting considering Perfect has been the heavy favorite to join HHH and Evolution as the team searches for its fourth member. Now insiders are saying Perfect could jump ship to the NWA and instead join the Four Horsemen. Behind the scenes, HHH and Ric Flair may be engaged in a tug of war for Hennig's services. Stay tuned!

Fun mix of guys and some really cool booking.
Thanks bud. I’ve never really been able to keep a consistent LOW fed going, so we will see where this goes. My head is filled with ideas, so just getting them written down is a start. At the very least I am hoping to build a foundation I can always come back to. Of all my attempts at running a LOW fed, this is the one I’m hoping sticks. Never really been happy with any of my other attempts and lose interest. So fingers crossed!
I really love the passion this community has for LOW and would love to catch up w the rest of you guys and some of your killer feds.
