Reposted from @curbsidehero531 On the April 10, 2000 edition of WWF “Raw is War” HHH defended his WWF Championship against Taka Michinoku. Taka has enlisted the services of the APA to ensure there was no outside interference. Taka with a headscissors, a dropkick, a spinning heel kick and a low dropkick for a two count. Hunter whipped Taka in the ropes, but Taka hit another dropkick. Boot to the face by Taka, punch to the face and Taka hit a Tornado DDT for a two count. Hunter with a knee to face followed by a clothesline that sent Taka over top to the floor. Hunter sent Taka face first into the barricade at ringside. Back in the ring, Hunter hit a jumping knee to the face. Hunter attacked Taka against the ropes, he wouldn’t stop, so referee Earl Hebner pulled Hunter back by the hair. Hunter and Hebner shoved eachother twice each. Taka came back with punches followed by a forearm to the face. Hunter stopped his momentum with a punch to the throat. Hunter dumped Taka out of the ring near where the Acolytes were. Hunter threw Taka into the steel steps with Hebner getting in Hunter’s face with Hunter saying “I don’t give a fuck what you say” to Hebner. Funaki took advantage of that by hitting a dropkick on Hunter that sent Hunter in the APA guys. That led to Bradshaw hitting a clothesline on Hunter. Bradshaw on the apron to distract, Funaki with a missile dropkick and Taka hit a moonsault press off the top that barely connected, but Hunter sold it anyway. That got a two count with JR freaking out about how close it was. Shane and Vince McMahon went down to the ring, so the APA went up to them. Vince and Shane tried getting past the APA but couldn’t. Just ten, the team of Bull Buchanan and Big Boss Man attacked the APA from behind with nightsticks. Taka went up top and hit a missile dropkick on Hunter. Taka wanted the Michinoku Driver, Hunter blocked it and hit a Powerbomb counter to a hurricanrana attempt. Hunter hit a Pedigree on Taka for the pinfall win to retain the WWF Championship at 5:53. Post match, HHH hit a Pedigree on Funaki, and posed with the heavyweight title.
