Up pops Shawn Michaels, who announces that since McMahon doesn't want the title shot, it goes to the runner up, as per the WWE Rulebook. Therefore Austin gets the title shot.

Fairly good tag team match, with the salt peter working wonders, as Debra strips more and more. That is not working, so the Blue Blazer, who is a black man this week, runs in and nails Shamrock with a guitar. Likely Koko B. Ware under the mask or at least I have assumed. In this, Jeff Jarrett and Owen Hart score the pin and we have new WWF Tag Team Champions.
Shane McMahon is out, to humble Kane and make him apologize. X-Pac comes out, in an attempt to recruit Kane to DX and then Kane turns and beats the ever living snot out of X-Pac, on the orders of Shane. Shane McMahon then gives X-Pac a Bronco Buster, giving him retribution for when X-Pac did the same to him a few weeks ago.

Al Snow and Road Dogg defeated Gangrel and Edge
Good Hardcore style tag team match, with all four of them battling each other throughout this match. Bluedust shows up to give Al Snow Head, and Al Snow uses Head. crashing through the table and the Brood crashes through tables and Snow and Road Dogg score the win in this Hardcore Tag Team Match.
Al Snow and Road Dogg are attacked by the Acolytes as a Hardcore Title Match is set up. Undertaker shows up and promises doom and gloom.
The Rock retained the WWF Championship against Triple H in an I Quit Match.
Usual at least decent match, with the Corporation getting involved and Kane has his hands on Chyna. Kane threatens a Choke Slam on Chyna and Triple H has no choice but to quit. Chyna is let go and the Rock wins, with Triple H getting nailed right in the groin, for Chyna to turn heel and join the Corporation. Swerve!
