Austin welcomes MLW’s Court Bauer to the show to discuss WWE’s In Your House 16: Canadian Stampede.
Austin says that this Canadian crowd was one of the hottest crowds he ever worked in front of. Austin worked in a 10-man tag match, and his team of babyfaces were immediately forced to work as heels on this night since they went up against The Hart Foundation in Canada. During this time, Bret Hart and The Hart Foundation were enormous heels in the United States but they were huge babyfaces in their home country of Canada.
Bauer says that this was a very good show overall, and he thought all the matches and packages were timed out very well. The broadcast team for this show was Vince McMahon, Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, and they were phenomenal on this night. Austin agrees entirely, noting that a lot of fans didn’t like McMahon as lead commentator, but he thinks that’s one of the greatest three-men booths of all time.
The opening match of the evening was Triple H (w/Chyna) versus Mankind. Austin thought this was a great match, and he specifically enjoyed the understated, yet powerful performance from Chyna. He says that Chyna had an incredible impact on the business and she needs to be in the WWE Hall of Fame. Even though this match ended in a double count-out, Bauer thought the finish was irrelevant because these two men had a great bout that set the tone for the evening.
