Triple H, October 2011:

“When I grew up, I hated Hogan. I thought he was terrible and didn’t like to watch him. I was like Punk in a way. I liked the Steamboats and Flairs and the ones that could go. Would I be right in saying that Hogan was the wrong guy to go with, and they should’ve changed directions and gone with Steamboat because he was the better wrestler? Ludicrous.” - Triple H. October, 2011.

A Counterfactual History - The 2010s, Part One

Saturday, December 01, 2012

The previous decade is here.

This was Bret Hart's first WWF appearance since Montreal.  Shawn cut a promo on him to open the night.  Nitro got one last win to finish off Benjamin.  Rey beat Carlito.  Tatsu beat MVP.  D1 kept the straps, beating Defiance.  Sydal won the IC when Bret prevented Nitro from interfering, Nitro responded by superkicking him.  Matt cashed in his title shot and lost, Jericho keeping the belt; and in the main Christian won the blow off to his feud against Punk - and postmatch Edge and Matt, joining together, ended Maria's run in WWF.  

Harry and Tyson turned face, beating Hunter and Miz in the opener.  Cena beat his former partner Leviathan in a loser leaves town.  Hooligans beat Defiance and Orton punted Dean out of the group.  Rey went 7-0 at Wrestlemanias; Young Money won the tag titles; Sydal kept the IC over Tatsu; Jericho kept the WWF title over Regal; Bret/MVP beat Shawn/Nitro, the next night, Shawn turned face and got blasted into retirement by the new formation of the Clique - Nitro and Miz; Edge and Matt beat Punk and Christian in the main, and Edge turned on Matt postmatch to be the only man standing at night's end.

Bret's now WWF Commissioner, Regal is head trainer Underground, and he's targeting GDI.  Sheamus beat Orton; Mysterio beat Nemeth; Nitro took the IC; Danielson beat Punk, incapacitating him from going after Edge, as Bret had hoped; and Edge became WWF Champion, defeating Jericho.

Dos Caras, Jr.'s first unmasked match was here; Rey beat Nemeth again; Nitro beat MVP; Danielson beat Low Ki in the best match of the decade to that date; Edge kept the belt over Swagger and went nose to nose with Punk at show's end.
