|CROWNED PRINCE OF HARDCORE
It all started with a Hardcore match against Roaddog in which Al lost the match outside in the snow, Roaddog unable to wrestle at the PPV St.Valentines day Massacre,so a match was set against Bob Holly for the Hardcore belt at the P.P.V.,Al wrestled Bob down to the banks of the Mississippi,but he cheated and wraped Al up in wire fencing to win the Hardcore belt
Bob then became "Hardcore Holly" .PPV Backlash against Holly,Al pined Holly after Al knocked him into a table,making HEAD the Hardcore champ,Holly kidnap HEAD telling Al he would not get HEAD back till he got a title shot
Al looking for some spiritual guidence finds it in a stuffed Deer head named Pierre
Al got HEAD back from Bob who tryed to make Al look stupid by saying that Al must have a match with HEAD and win,only then would Al be Hardcore champ,and Bob the ref,So Al had the match and beat HEAD but in the end it was Pierre the Deer head that pined HEAD to become Hardcore champ
Bob took poor Pierre and beat the stuffing out of him,Al was upset and tryed to get the WWF Dr to help poor Pierre but it was too late,Pierre had gone to Deer head heaven,Al angery at Holly told him he would wrestle Holly at the Over the Edge PPV in a title match,Al tossed Holly through a table to retain the Hardcore belt
Al wrestled many matches on the road against Holly and Blackman,it got to be that nobody would wrestle Al because they thought he was crazy,so Al made the Minis sign a contract to wrestle him,those evil minis used Salad Tongs on Al
Then that cross dresser Droz wrestled Al in an evening gown match,but once again Al was the winner.Prince Albert hammered a rail road spike into HEAD's head,Al felt HEAD's pain and needed someone any one to take away the pain
Al has match on Raw against Boss Man who Al asks to take away the Pain,but all Boss Man did was hand cuff Al to the ring in Hard time fashion
July 1999 Fully Loaded PPV,Al faced The Boss Man again,and with a headache Al asked Boss Man to stop the pain,Al worked Boss Man crying Hard Time,Al tossed hot coffee on atBoss Man didn't have the guts to take away the pain,but hand cuffed Al to a fence to win the Hardcore Belt...
As Al is seating back stage a Dog comes up to Al and it starts talking to Al,Al thinks this Dog,"Pepper",is going to help him win the Hardcore belt back from Bossman at SummerSlam....
Al tries to get Pepper to go to the ring with him but Pepper was too chicken,so off Al went to the ring,Al and the Bossman battled outside the arena and into a bar where with help from Roaddog and a night stick to the Bossmans back,Al pined Bossman to win back the Hardcore belt,later as Al is making his way back to the arena he finds Stevie Richards and the Blue Menie trying to jump start Pepper
On the very first Smackdown Bossman Shoooots to Al that he wants a title shot,Al takes Bossman up on the offer,not to smart on Al's part as Bossman beats Al to win the Hardcore Belt,not only that but Bossman kidnapes Pepper
Al all upset makes little posters of the missing Pepper,later Bossman shoooots to Al that he will give Pepper back to Al if Al will meet him in his Motel room,Al shows up and wants Pepper back,Bossman tells Al that that is what he is tring to do,Bossman asked Al to have a seat cuz he has made Al supper,Al didn't want Supper,he wanted the damn dog back,so anyway,Bossman sets a plate of food in front of Al to eat,looked like Beef and noodles,so Al takes a bite,little did Al know but he was eating Pepper,Bossman had deep fried the little dog
Al freaked and lost his mind,first he thought he was Avatar,then he thought he was Leif Cassidy,Bossman was shoooting in the ring that he could take on anybody,so who should come down the ramp but the Bulldog,he beats Bossman for the belt just like that,out comes Al dressed as Leif,Al take a note he has writen and shoves it into Bossmans mouth as he lay on the mat,Al then made his way up the ramp,the Bulldog just gives the Hardcore belt back to Al
Al wanted to get even so Al came up with an idea,why not get even with Bossman by scaring him with some mean evil looking doggies.So Al went out and got himself 6 big Rottweilers
Al and Bossman then had a Pepper on a Poll match in which the remines of Pepper were in a doggie bag on a stick,Bossman was just about to win the match when out come the evil Rottweilers,well Bossman tossed the bag across the ring and Al got it,Al later made a nice little grave for Pepper and layed him to rest
Al comes up for an idea for a match to get even, a cell within a cell match with the big bad doggies around the ring for the Unforgiven PPV,Bossman takes Al up on it and it turns out to be the worst match at the PPV,the dogs didn't care and the Bossman made Al look bad
A 3 way dance for the Hardcore belt,Al vs Bossman vs Big Show,poor Al gets slammed into a table by Big Show,Bossman beaned Big Show with the night stick,rolled Big Show over to get the pin,Bossman wins the Hardcore belt
That was the end of Al and the Hardcore belt,it was later held by Crash Holly and Steve Blackman

Another early Hardcore Champion was Al Snow, who would often take his matches through the backstage area and outside the arenas.'I try to be as creative as possible in hardcore matches, but a lot of the time it's a group effort,' Snow said. 'You see these hardcore matches and sometimes eight or nine people can get involved, and all of those people also have to be in on the creative process.
I like hardcore matches, they're fun and entertaining, but they really take a toll on your body.'One particularly memorable storyline took place following Summerslam 1999, when Snow and The Bossman were feuding for the title.
Snow had been carrying a little dog to the ring with him, named Pepper. The Bossman kidnapped the dog and cooked him up--feeding Al some 'Pepper Steak!' Of course, The Bossman didn't really kill any dogs, but it made for a hell of a storyline!'
It was a fantastic storyline, and I still have people coming up to me to this day, and asking me if I really did ring that dog's neck and cook him up', The Bossman said. "If you check out J.R's cookbook, you can get the original recipe on how to fix Pepper Steak. You need a live Chihuahua, and a bunch of baking (bacon?) grease!'
