“We’ve had great discussions with Geoff Johns over there at DC. This is a really, really fun, cool time for DC right now because they’re really in a process of truly world building, and building out. We’re seeing that with Wonder Woman and Aquaman, and we have a few surprises down the line. So what we decided to do was actually create a scenario where Black Adam is having his standalone movie, Captain Marvel/Shazam will have his standalone movie, and then we’re building our world up that way and then we can come together at some other point.”
At D-Generation X: In Your House , Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated The Rock in under six minutes to retain the Intercontinental Championship.  The next night on Raw Is War , Austin was ordered by Mr. McMahon to defend the title in a rematch, but forfeited it to The Rock instead, handing him the title belt before hitting him with the Stone Cold Stunner .   The Rock feuded with Austin and Ken Shamrock through the end of 1997 and beginning of 1998.   On the March 30 episode of Raw is War , The Rock debuted a new Intercontinental Championship belt which was used to represent the title until October 2, 2011 , when the previous design was reused. Later that night, The Rock would also overthrow Faarooq as leader of the Nation of Domination to spark a feud between the two and successfully defended the Intercontinental title against Faarooq at Over the Edge: In Your House on May 31, 1998.
