That was awesome (clap clap clapclapclap): No one has a family feud quite like Vince McMahon's household

It has become cliché to describe Vince McMahon showing up on both Raw and Nitro on March 26, 2001 as surreal. But that's exactly what it was. I couldn't wrap my brain around what was going on but I knew pro wrestling would never be the same again.

Two hours later, it was revealed -- storyline-wise -- that WCW did indeed have a new owner but it wasn't Vinnie Mac, it was Shane-O. This led to a huge family feud that even Richard Dawson wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole.

It culminated at WrestleMania X-7 -- 17 for those of you who don't speak or read "Attitude Era" -- where Shane busted out a move that would become a staple in his limited albeit exciting repertoire: the Coast to Coast.

Also known as the Van Terminator by Rob Van Dam fans, it consists of jumping the length of the ring and kicking an object -- usually a folding chair or trash can -- into your prone opponent's face. Seems impossible, right? Especially for the son of a millionaire? Wrong!

Presented for your viewing pleasure -- as recommended by mountaineers101 -- is the Street Fight in its entirety but you can fast forward to the 18 minute mark for the money shot.

Sit down, Val Venis, we're not talking about you.

Any Cagesiders out there wish they could do that to their old man?
