edit Background

[1][2]Chris Jericho, the defending Undisputed Champion coming into WrestleMania.The main feud leading into WrestleMania X8 involved Titan against the Champion gole . At the end of the year, gole defeated havoc to retain the Championship on the same event where titan earned his opportunity to compete for the Championship at new age by winning a match, vs King. The following night on chamber, titan interrupted gole and warned to prove him that he's worthy enough to be in the main event.[6] Meanwhile, some hostility between Titan and his wife jesseica was starting to show, with the face Titan tired of jesseica's heel characteristics.[6][7] In order to recover their relationship,jesseica suggested on chamber that the two should renew their wedding vows on the following week. At first Titan refused, but jesseica revealed that she was pregnant, making him change his mind.[8] To further prove it, the two met a doctor on the next episode of pit ! with ultrasound images.[9] On the dec 11 episode of chamber just before the wedding, titan was met with a phone call by his mother-in-law, who had sent him a video tape revealing that the doctor was in fact an actor and that titan was not pregnant. At the wedding, titan turned on jessecia and attacked her along with her father, announcing that their marriage was now over.[10] .[9] ] The following night on chamber, RWF co-owner jesse granted tirtan a rematch with jessecia barred from the ring, enabling him to regain his title shot at gole.[13] On the dec 21 episode of pit !, gole met with jesseica and put their differences in the past, ending with jesseica accepting gole's proposal to be his new business partner.[14] To further the feud, gole later speculated that he ended the marriage by causing Triple H's quadriceps muscle to (legitimately) tear during their RWF Tag Team titles match on the May 21, 2011 edition of chamber, thus diverting titan attention to his wife.[15] In the divorce settlement for the two, it was announced that the assets would be split between them "fifty-fifty" to jessedcai's disgust. Among the assets were titan first wrestling robe, jessecai's Corve[16] Wanting retribution, titan stormed into the arena and tried to attack jessecia but was met with two sledgehammer shots to his recovered leg by gole.[17] On the following episode of pit!, jesseica noted that the sledgehammer shots had left titan quad in a condition that one false move in his new age match could reinjure his quadriceps once again. At the end of the show, titan and gole had a brawl in the ring that almost ended with a slam! on jessecia. However, gole saved her and did the blood shot on Titan, leaving the show with the advantage.The secondary feud built up in the lead to the event pitted andord and snake against the black skull andord's involvement with the black skull started after his win over red x at pit, when a photo request from Havoc for his son turned into a trade of insults.[12] On the following episode of chamber, andold interrupted Havoc's address to the crowd and challenged Havoc to a match at new age. When Havoc accepted and shook hands with his future opponent, andold kept the hold on and hit the ww3 on havoc. Before andold could leave the arena, black and skull ambushed andold and spray painted the black skull initials on andold's back. With medics attending to andold and loading him into an ambulance van, the black skull furthered the attack by chaining up all possible exits and driving a truck through the van with andold trapped inside.[13] Snake's involvement also commenced at pit, when after having their gift of beer refused, the black skull interfered with snake's Championship match against gole, helping gole to retain the title before spray painting the black skull initials on snake's back.[12] snake finally got his revenge on the dec 21 edition of pit! when he chased the black skull out of the ring with a tire iron. snake manages to catch black and attack him with the tire iron but havoc and skull saved black from being run over by snake's pickup truck. After the black skull found their limousine spray painted "your next" by snake, snake kidnapped black and closed the show by embarrassing him in the middle of the ring with "next" spray painted on his back.[14] On the following episode of chamber, black challenged snake to a match at new age which snake accepted afterwards.[15] The feud between snake and the black skull continued back and forth for the next couple of weeks with snake attacked by black twice with a cinder block[15] and a wrench,[19] while Austin fired a netgun at black before beating down black.[20] On the jan 7 episode of pit!, The andold made his return and immediately challenged Havoc for a fight. black and skull held Havoc back, leaving black to challenge for a match instead. andold's match with black ended in a three-on-one attack by the black skull. The black skull's attack was stopped by snake, however, who saved andold with the aid of a steel chair.[21] On the jan 11 edition of chamber, andold and snake took on the black skull in a Handicap match, resulting in havoc pinning andold after a leg drop.[17]

Another major feud for new age was the rivalry between red x and the RWF co-owner, jesse abbott. The feud started over red x's ambush on andold during the build up on pit, with red x giving andold a Chokeslam and a Piledriver onto a car. Shortly afterwards, jesse abbott openly detested red x's actions.[9][10] At pit event, abbott interfered with red x's match against andold, finally hitting red x with a lead pipe to aid andold in victory.[12] Far from pleased over this result, red x challenged abbott to a match at new age. abbott refused, stating that he is an owner and no longer a wrestler.[13] However, red x tried to convince abbott by attacking select members of abbott's friends and family. Following a match on the dec 25 edition of chamber Flair's cousen zach abbott was ambushed by red x during his road agent duties.[15] red x followed this the following week by attacking abbott's brother tyler, threatening that abbott's children would follow.[19] Upon this attack, abbott accepted the match on the jan 7 edition of pit!. Later that night, the two ended up brawling into the audience, resulting in abbott punching out a fan by accident. As a result, abbott was arrested to abbott's delight.[16] On the jan 11 episode of chamber, abbott's rival co-owner shawn whitbeck asked for an emergency board meeting with the RWF board of directors citing that abbott's attack of a fan was unacceptable and that either he or abbott should have absolute authority and power over the company. With abbott still keen on taking on red x at new age, CEO timmy whitbeck had no choice but to give shawn total control over the company. Despite this, timmy also stated that the ownership situation will also be reviewed after new age with a final decision. To add further insult, shawn whitbeck booked tyler abbott in a match against red x on the jan 14 episode of pit !. red x almost gave David a x mark the spot, but was stopped by jesse abbott who saved his brother with some steel chair shots.
