On this date in WWF history: Arnold Schwarzenegger terminates Triple H on Smackdown

Surely you've wanted to bitch slap Triple H at some point or another. Because you can't, take joy in watching Arnold Schwarzenegger do it on this date in WWF history on SmackDown.

On November 11, 1999, World Wrestling Federation (WWF) brought Hollywood action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger onto Thursday night Smackdown! to promote his craptacular new movie, End of Days.

The segment, which was actually taped on November 9, featured a series of cheesy spots that had Ah-nuld intermittently mingling with the WWF roster, but the high water mark came in the main event, when he bitch-slapped Triple H to close out the show.

If his choreography was any stiffer, Mike Chioda would've been throwing up the "X" sign.

The rest of us were just throwing up.

Any Cagesiders out there remember face-palming their way through this "special attraction?" Or were you still stuck in 80's mode and marking out for the last action hero?
