Debra distracts Billy Gunn
Kemper Arena, Kansas City, Missouri
26th August 1999
Jeff Jarrett Vs "Mr Ass" Billy Gunn
Jeff Jarrett as the reigning Intercontinental Champion was having problems with Billy Gunn and more recently, Chyna!
On the previous episode of Raw is War, Chyna had signed herself up to be the number one contender for the Intercontinental title on the recent episode of RAW but Jeff Jarrett had responded to this by smashing a guitar over her head! Billy Gunn had later responded to this by smashing another guitar over Jeff Jarrett thanks to a mistake by Debra's new assistant, Miss Kitty.
This set up a singles match on the first ever episode of Smackdown! and Billy Gunn took quick control which forced Debra to spring into action with her trademark distraction routine. It didn't quite work as she expected but it bought her man some time. Jeff Jarrett went on to take control of this short match but then we saw an angry looking Chyna walking down the ramp! Jeff Jarrett shouts for Miss Kitty to hand him a guitar but Chyna snatches it and then goes to hit her with it but Miss Kitty ducks and Debra gets struck down by Chyna instead! Debra appears to be quite hurt and Jeff Jarrett wants to come to her aid but Billy Gunn grabs and pins him seconds later.
After the match, Jeff Jarrett tends to his injured manager while Chyna has the last laugh on Billy Gunn, landing a low blow on him and she walks up the ramp.
