  It wasn't a RAW.

But it was sure well-done.

With their typical pomp and circumstance, their fireworks and hardbodied Superstars, the World Wrestling Federation wowed a record wrestling crowd of 16,250 hardcore fans at the Canadian Airlines Saddledome last night.

And The Rattlesnake raised the curved roof off the place.

Stone Cold Steve Austin and his partner "The Big Show" Paul Wight won the main event match against The Rock and Big Bossman when Austin nailed Bossman with a Stone Cold Stunner -- while The Big Show laid the smack down on The Rock outside the ring.

Austin, the WWF champion, and Wight celebrated by guzzling "Steveweiser" beers tossed to them by the Saddledome crowd.

It was a magical night.

There were no disappointments.

Calgary's own Owen Hart received a tremendous pop and didn't disappoint the hometown fans when he and tag team partner Jeff Jarrett defeated the New Age Outlaws with Owen's trademark Sharpshooter applied after the lovely Debra showed the Outlaw Road Dogg her money-makers.

The Outlaws earlier eliminated The Brood in the three-way match.

In other action, Mankind defeated Goldust with his dirty, stinky Mr. Socko after Goldust used his own cleaner version of the footwear earlier in the bout.

Tag team champs Kane and X-Pac beat up on Triple-H and Test, much to the chagrin of Amazon woman Chyna.

Asian royalty Tiger Ali Singh was punked by the Godfather, who was accompanied to the ring by some sexy women.

Ken Shamrock, the World's most dangerous man, beat The Undertaker by disqualification.

Hardcore Holly pinned porn star Val Venis when the psychotic Al Snow interfered and hit Venis with Head.

In the sexiest match of the night, the lovely minx Tori pinned the lovely Jackie after tossing off the lovely Ivory in a triple-threat contest.

Everyone won in that encounter.

In early action, the Acolytes defeated the Disciples of the Apocalypse and D-Lo Brown battered Al Snow.

Snow berated his mannequin head sidekick and beat it up, much to the delight of the fans.

The WWF returns to the Saddledome Oct. 4.
