On this date in WWF history: Paul Bearer goes head first into a sewer

The Attitude Era was pure insanity and it that fact was never more evident than this date in history when Paul Bearer went head first into a sewer, courtesy of Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Ah, the good old days. When WWF superstars were carted off to the nut house and shoved down manholes after being threatened in front of live audience.

On November 30, 1998, Paul Bearer was trying to get Kane taken to the funny farm, as part of his recent heel turn with the Undertaker, who recently betrayed "The Big Red Machine." Unfortunately for ole Percy Pringle, Stone Cold Steve Austin wasn't havin' it.

"The Rattlesnake" helped Kane get 'Taker carted away (after clowning him with a shovel) and exacted revenge by stuffing Bearer down a Baltimore sewer.

As far as the "Attitude Era" was concerned, this was just another Monday night on Raw.
