This week’s Woman Crush Wednesday takes us to Wrestlemania X-7 and the Shane McMahon vs Vince McMahon Street Fight.
There was a lot going on in this storyline. Shane had just bought WCW from under his father’s nose. Meanwhile, Vince was having an affair with Trish Stratus. Linda was in a comatose-like state and “heavily medicated.” Shane was fighting for her honor.
The match itself was more of a story than an actual match. Mick Foley was the special guest referee. Trish brings Linda to ringside, but she slaps Stephanie McMahon and they brawl to the back. Vince then puts Linda in the ring and makes her watch what he is about to do to Shane. Linda then gets up out of her chair and delivers a kick to, as Jim Ross calls it, the McMahon Family Jewels. The pop Linda receives when she gets up is HUGE. It shows that when Vince plays the heel card right, people want to see him get his ass kicked.
I apologize for the video, it is the best I could find.
