On this date in WWF history: Stone Cold Steve Austin has a Breakdown: In Your House

Starts at the 4:50 mark

On September 27, 1998, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin was forced to defend his WWF Championship against the brothers of destruction, Kane and The Undertaker, in a triple-threat match at the Breakdown: "In Your House" pay-per-view from the Copps Coliseum in Hamilton, Ontario.

And what Stone Cold storyline would be complete without a Mr. McMahon screwjob?

Aside from the fade to black as Vinny Mac's limousine sped away with the title to close the show, pro wrestling fans were left scratching their heads because it was unclear as to who the new champion was. That's because both "The Deadman" and "The Big Red Machine" had covered "The Rattlesnake" for the pin.

See for yourself:

While many fans hated the outcome of the match, if nothing else, it set up the Zamboni attack the very next night on Monday Night RAW.

Any Cagesiders out there marking out for this angle? Or does it still taste bitter?
