      >> RAW IS WAR REPORT
      Written By Joe DeLeon

      • Backstage, Vince McMahon, along with Tony Garea, came to terms with
      the referees that have been on strike. McMahon said that the WWF would
      back them up in every way possible, and they have all the authority in
      the ring. They all shook hands and they would resume their jobs on the
      show.

      • Triple H Interview, with Chyna.
      - Triple H said everytime he held the belt in the air, the fans could
      kiss his ass. He said he was the best wrestler, and he went threw
      everyone the previous night in the Six-Pack Challenge. He said the best
      part of it was when Stone Cold Steve Austin had
      no choice, but to kneel down and count the three for him. He said he
      pinned none other than The People's Champ, The Rock. He said Austin was
      next, and he would not rest until he beat Austin's ass. The British
      Bulldog made his way out. Bulldog said he had a deal with Triple H. The
      deal was if either of them became the champion, they would give each
      other a title shot the next night. Bulldog said he came to the WWF for
      one thing, and that was to become the champion. He said he would take
      the belt later in the
      night. Triple H then told him to calm down. He said he lied to the
      Bulldog, and wasn't giving him anything. Bulldog kept calling Triple H
      "game-boy." Bulldog said he would fight Triple H no matter what. Triple
      H said "screw you" and Bulldog attacked him, until Chyna made the save.
      Vince McMahon made his way out near the entrance-way. He congratulated
      Triple H for becoming the new champion. He announced that Triple H would
      have to defend the title in Greensboro, North Carolina against The Rock.

      Pritchard. You could not hear what they were saying.

      • Backstage, Mankind arrived with balloons and presents with some person
      under a sheet. He said he couldn't wait to see what The Rock would say.

      Hughes and Jericho were walking up the rampway, Road Dogg attacked them.

      • Backstage, Mankind was sitting down with the person that was covered
      up. Stevie Richards came dressed as Dude Love. Mankind asked Richards
      why he was dressed like that. Richards said it was because all the
      chicks would love him. Mankind laughed and spit out the soda he was
      drinking. When Richards walked away, Mankind told the person under the
      sheet that Dude Love didn't get any chicks, it was all part of the
      gimmick.

      • Backstage, Stone Cold Steve Austin made his way towards the ring.

      • Stone Cold Steve Austin Interview.
      - Stone Cold Steve Austin called out Vince McMahon. Austin said he
      reinstated McMahon for a Heavyweight Title shot against the champion the
      night after Unforgiven, which was then and there. McMahon said Austin
      was correct and thanked him. He said Austin would get his title shot,
      but he never said when. McMahon said it would be at No Mercey. Austin
      said if that wasn't what happened, he would stomp a mudhole in McMahon's
      ass and walk it dry.

      • Backstage, Chyna accepted Jeff Jarrett's challenge, but told Debra to
      be careful.

      • On G-TV, The Mean Street Posse where in their hotel room. Rodney, Joy
      Abs, and Terri Runnels just finished taking a shower together and you

      Blackman then went after head security official, Jim Dotson, who tackled
      Blackman the previous night on Unforgiven. Meanwhile, Droz attacked D-Lo
      at ringside, until Mark Henry scared him off. D-Lo wanted no part of
      Henry and pushed him away.

      • Backstage, Mankind made his way down to the ring with gifts in his
      hand. He invited Austin to the ring, but Austin passed the offer.

      • Mankind came down with the person in the sheet. He said he wanted to
      apologize for giving Socko to The Rock the previous night on Unforgiven.
      He called The Rock out. The Rock came out and said he did not have time
      to waste and wanted to know why he was in the ring. Mankind called out
      The Rock's sixth grade teacher out. The Rock remembered her and after a
      while he told a story how she wouldn't let him make pancakes in school
      and told her to get out. Mankind then introduced The Rock's old gym
      teacher. The Rock said that his coach made The Rock do sprints after a
      football game one day. He had his coach blow his whistle and then told
      him to stick it up his candy-ass. Mankind told "the jerk" to leave. He
      then introduced The Rock's high school sweetheart. The Rock said they
      used to kiss a lot on her parent's couch. He said she used to love The
      Rock's tounge. The Rock said one time, when they were kissing she, told
      him, in his ear, to go for "second base." The Rock then put his hand on
      her knee and worked his way up, but she cut him off. He told her to
      "pu-tang her ass out of there." Mankind made The Rock open his gifts.
      One was a jacket that said "Rock and Sock Connection." Another gift was
      a sock, called Mr. Rocko. Mankind introduced Yurpul the clown, who was
      the person under the sheet. The Rock asked her what her name was, but
      cut her off by doing his usual "It doesn't matter what your name is"
      line. Mankind said it didn't matter, because she would lead everyone in
      a Happy Birthday song to The Rock. They sang, and afterwards, The Rock
      told Mankind it wasn't even his birthday. Mankind said when he spent
      time with The Rock, it always felt like someone's birthday. Triple H
      then ran in with a sledgehammer. He went at The Rock, but The Rock got
      away.

      • The New Age Outlaws came down and had an open challenge to any tag
      team. In the backstage area, The Holly's wondered Road Dogg and Billy
      Gun met the super heaveyweight requirements. Hardcore said they should
      get the scale, as we went to a commercial break. After the break, Kane
      and X-Pac, who were back together, made their ways down to the ring to
      take on Outlaws.

      • The New Age Outlaws vs. Kane and X-Pac went to a No Contest, to let
      The Outlaws retain the Tag Team Titles.
      - As the match went on, Hardcore and Crash came down with the scale, but
      didn't make it on time, so they did color commentary. They soon
      interfered, resulting in a No-Contest. Kane, X-Pac, Road Dogg, and Billy
      Gunn all took out The Holly's and hugged in the end.

      • Backstage, Chyna made her way towards the ring.

      • On G-TV, Val Venis threw a soda can in the garbage and found the Mr.
      Rock sock that The Rock had earlier. He rolled it up and put it in his
      pants.

      • Jeff Jarrett came down with Miss Kitty and Tom Pritchard. He called
      out Chyna, who came out and said the only way she would fight was if she
      won, she would get a rematch for the Intercontinental Title at No Mercy.
      Jarrett accepted, saying there was no way
      he and Pritchard would lose anyway.

      with it over the head. Jarrett was knocked out, so after Chyna was hit,
      she landed on Jarrett for the pinfall.

      gave Triple H the Stunner. Both men were on the ground and the referee
      was out. When The Rock finally put his arm on Triple H for the pin

      in his locker room.

      submission, to retain the Television Title.
      - Ernest Miller insulted the crowd and the city of Atlanta. He
      challenged Sting to a Heavyweight Title match. He said he wasn't leaving
      until he got it, and if he didn't, he would whoop everybody. Chris
      Benoit made his way down to take up Miller on his challenge. Miller said
      he guess he would have to work from the bottom. He said he would begin
      his collection with Benoit's Television Title. After a lariat, Benoit
      signaled for his Diving Headbutt. Sonny Onoo entered the ring, went

      moving clouds was shown.

      • A video was shown of of Lex Luger lying in a coffin, with his soul
      saying, "Here lies a great champion who we will no longer see no more."

      - Before the match, Shane Douglas told Dean Malenko they would watch his
      back. Malenko didn't want their help, nor did Rey Mysterio, Jr. want his
      partners' help, so the three members of each team headed to the back.
      During the match, we saw a shot of
      Sid Vicious and Rick Steiner arriving. Mysterio took the match out of
      nowhere with a roll-up. He and Malenko shook hands afterwards.

      Laughing Matter Moonsault, but goldberg kicked out when the pin attempt
      was made. Morrus was soon speared and Jackhammered. Goldberg said he
      proved it all to Sid. He called Sid out in his hometown. He said he had

      Thunder, Rick Steiner said Sid had better things to do. Hammer signaled

      Steiner nailed in some punches. Steiner then took the win with the
      Steiner Bulldog.

      • Bret Hart Interview, Conducted by Gene Okerlund.
      - Gene Okerlund asked for the extent on Bret Hart's injuries after being
      attacked with a baseball back by Lex Luger. Hart said he had a few
      stitches but it would take a hell of a lot more to stop him. Hart said
      no one was more happier than him to be back. He said
      he was talking about respect. He said he used to respect Sting and
      Luger, but not anymore. Hart called both scum. Hart said Hulk Hogan was
      the "Elvis Presley" of wrestling. He said he was glad that Hogan was his
      partner. Ric Flair made his way out, at which point Hart said Flair was
      the best there is, the best there was, and the best their ever will be.
      Hart said he was honored to be Flair's partner later in the night. Flair
      said no matter what had happened in their lifetimes, they (Flair, Hart,
      Hogan) would kick Sting, Luger, and Diamond Dallas Page's ass. Flair
      confirmed that Hogan was taken to the hospital in the ambulance earlier
      in the show, however. He said he and Hart would kick ass anyway. Flair
      went crazy at this point, throwing elbow drops everywhere.
      Hart told the heels to bring it on.

      • Backstage, David Flair asked Torrie Wilson where she was. Wilson was
      with Kidman in The Filthy Animal's locker room. Wilson claimed she was
      in an accident at the airport, and she was sick. The Filthy Animals
      whispered and laughed in the background, with David asking who that was.
      Wilson said she was tired. David then hung up on her.

      • Konnan and Perry Saturn went to a No-Contest.
      - As Konnan and Perry Saturn wrestled a back and forth match, The Filthy
      Animals, Psychosis, and several others interfered. Shane Douglas made
      his way down to pull Perry Saturn out of the ring. Saturn didn't want
      any help. Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko made their ways down to side off
      with Saturn. Douglas argued with Benoit, Malenko, and Saturn as the
      segment concluded.

      • Backstage, Sid Vicious walked by his car, and then went back inside
      the arena. A tow truck then pulled up to haul Sid's car out of there.
      Goldberg told the driver he knew what to do, and told him to make sure
      he had it back at the arena at 11:00.

      • Diamond Dallas Page Interview, Conducted by Gene Okerlund.
      - Diamond Dallas Page told the crowd to shut the hell up. Page said he
      happened to be married to one of the most beautiful people in the world.
      He said sometimes people hated him. Okerlund claimed it was because of
      Page's ego, but Page said it was because of his wife. Page then said he
      delivered the goods and was the greatest two-time Heavyweight Champion.
      He said he, the new Lex Luger, and Sting would run through Bret Hart and
      Ric Flair later in the night. Page said it was his understanding Hogan
      missed his flight. Okerlund corrected him, saying Hogan was at the
      hospital.

      • Hair vs. Mask: Kidman defeated Psychosis (w/Chavo Guerrero, Jr.,
      Juventud Guerrera) with the Shooting Star Press.
      - A barber and his chair awaited Kidman near the entrance-way. Psychosis
      had the advantage with help from Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Juventud
      Guerrera. Kidman later set up Psychosis for the Shooting Star Press.
      However, Chavo nailed him with the Tornado DDT, as Guerrera pulled
      Psychosis out of the ring and argued with the referee. Kidman kicked out
      on two. The referee was distracted once again, as Guerrera nailed Kidman
      with the Juvi Driver. Psychosis made the pin attempt, but Kidman
      surprisingly kicked out once again. After nailing Psychosis with a
      facebuster, and taking out Chavo and Guerrera, Kidman hit the Shooting
      Star Press for the win. Kidman went to unmask Psychosis immediately, and
      almost got it off, but Psychosis kept it on. He, Chavo, and Guerrera all
      attacked Kidman. Kidman soon outmaneuvered them all, as The Filthy
      Animal ran in to assist him. Psychosis' mask was eventually removed,
      with him covering his face with a towel at one point, and then running
      off.

      • Backstage, Sting, The Total Package, Diamond Dallas Page, Elizabeth,
      Ric Flair, and Bret Hart made their ways toward the ring.

      • Ric Flair and Bret Hart defeated Diamond Dallas Page, Sting, and The
      Total Package (w/Elizabeth) by Disqualification.
      - Ric Flair immediately hit Sting with some low-blows. At one point,
      Bret Hart had The Total Package in the Sharpshooter, but Sting made the
      save. The heels worked on Hart. The hot tag was soon made to Flair.
      Flair set up Sting for the Figure-Four Leglock, but
      decided to stop at it, as Hart battled it out with Package and Page on
      the outside of the ring. Flair then put Sting in the Figure-Four.
      Elizabeth handed the baseball bat to Package, who used it to choke out
      Sting. Package then entered the ring and nailed Flair with the bat for
      the Disqualification. David Flair entered the ring to defend his father,
      but was beaten down by the heels and received the Diamond Cutter.
      Outside of the arena, an ambulance was empty. Package had Flair in the
      Torture Rack, while Sting had Hart in the Sharpshooter. The punishment
      continued on Hart and Flair. Hogan, who had a legbrace on, with one half
      of his jeans cut off, limped down to the ring. He took out the heels
      easily with punches and the bat.

      • Backstage, Sid Vicious found that his car had been crushed. He yelled
      out, "Oh My God." He got on top of the piece of junk and yelled out for
      Goldberg.

        ______________________________________________________________

        >> RAW IS WAR REPORT
        By WWF.COM

        Less than a week away from No Mercy, RAW began live from the Joe Louis
        Arena in Detroit, MI, the very same arena that saw Rikishi run over
        Stone Cold Steve Austin one year ago!

        Intercontinental Champion Eddie Guerrero came to the ring to address his
        situation with a number of World Wrestling Federation Superstars. He
        said he was tired of Chyna's moaning and crying, and that she was a
        whimpering pain in the ass! Then, Guerrero told Mr. Ass he would find
        his right foot kicking his ass, just like what would happen to Chyna if
        she came begging for forgiveness! Eddie ended his tirade by yelling at
        Mick Foley about his poor skills as Commissioner, and he said that he
        would take on anyone Mick wanted him to face! Immediately, Chris Jericho
        rocked the arena and challenged Guerrero to his Intercontinental Title!

        After the match began it looked as if Guerrero injured his leg, and the
        referee called for the bell. As Jericho stood over the fallen Guerrero,
        X-Pac ran out and attacked Y2J! As X-Pac celebrated, Mr. Ass came out to
        get him some of X-Pac! After a Fame-Asser, Jericho and Mr. Ass watched
        as X-Pac and Guerrero retreated to the back.

        A limousine pulled up with in the parking lot, and Kurt Angle eagerly
        greeted it. His new business partner Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley got out,
        and told Kurt to grab her bags, which he eagerly did!

        Earlier on Monday, Jonathan Coachman sat down and interviewed Rikishi on
        his thoughts about why he ran over Stone Cold.

        Immediately, Rikishi said that his admission of his crime has been
        positive. He said that his people are proud that he stood up to make a
        change. When Coach told Rikishi that The Rock wasn't proud, the Phat Man
        said that The Rock seemed confused; that deep inside, Rock was happy
        with what he had done because they are family. Rikishi expressed no
        remorse at all - he meant what he did. In the past, his people were held
        back and he didn't want to see it happen again. Rikishi said he doesn't
        care one bit about Stone Cold, and that he would crush Austin at No
        Mercy.

        In a match set up on HEAT, T&A took on the very angry Acolytes. The
        match was a slobberknocker, with both physical teams brutalizing each
        other. Test threw punch after punch at Faarooq and Bradshaw hammered on
        Albert. The beating finally stopped when Trish got up on the ring apron,
        distracting Bradshaw. Faarooq saved his partner and Bradshaw pinned
        Albert after a clothesline from hell.

        In the McMahon-Helmsley locker room, Triple H asked Stephanie why she
        was still assisting Angle. She said that when they had talked about it
        at home, she told Hunter she'd reconsider - like he told her he would
        do. But since he won't, she would continue to help Kurt. The Game asked
        what would happen if she was hurt. Steph just told him that it was a
        chance they'd have to take. The Game said he wouldn't be able to control
        himself if she got hurt somehow, and he walked away.

        Kurt came in and Stephanie guaranteed Kurt would win the title at No
        Mercy. The Game came back in and asked Stephanie to leave!

        In a European Title match, goodwill Ambassador William Regal took on
        Champion Al Snow, who was representing the United Kingdom, complete with
        a portrait of Regal! Regal, in great condition, took Snow from rope to
        rope. After Al missed a moonsault, Regal locked him in a submission
        hold, forcing Snow to tap out! William Regal waved graciously to the
        crowd as he accepted his new European Title!

        In his locker room, Triple H told Kurt that Stephanie was his
        responsibility - if she got hurt, it was Kurt's fault. Secondly, Triple
        H said, if Angle tried to make it anything other than a business
        relationship, it would be the last thing he ever did! Angle said okay,
        but smirked as the Game walked away!

        As Triple H was set to battle Kane, Chris Benoit came out to offer guest
        commentary. His entrance distracted the Game, who was immediately
        hammered by Kane. As Triple H was getting brutalized, Stephanie, who was
        watching in the back, told Kurt she needed to help Hunter because she
        knew Benoit would interfere. Before she could leave, Angle convinced her
        to stay in the back.

        In the ring, Kane continued to beat on Triple H. But after being down
        for most of the match, the Game came back and started throwing punches
        at the Big Red Machine. While Kane lie prone, Triple H went and attacked
        Benoit at the announce table!

        Then, Hunter gave Kane a Pedigree, only to get nailed by Benoit with a
        chair! After getting Triple H back in the ring, Benoit locked him in the
        Crossface, which the Game immediately tapped out of!

        Michael Cole introduced Stone Cold Steve Austin, who came out to a
        rousing ovation from the Detroit crowd. Cole then asked Austin how he
        felt returning to the scene of where he was hit by Rikishi, and Stone
        Cold said he was happy to be there, but upset because he couldn't whoop
        Rikishi's ass right then! Austin said he had Rikishi's picture
        everywhere, and every time he saw that picture, he was looking at a dead
        man! Cole asked Austin what he was going to do to him at No Mercy, and
        Austin said he was going to stomp a mud hole in Rikishi's huge ass, no
        matter how long it took!

        Rikishi interrupted from the parking lot - from the very spot he hit
        Austin! Then he said he may not be allowed in the ring, but he called
        Austin out to the back! Austin ran out to confront Rikishi, where he
        tried to run over Stone Cold again! As he drove away, Rikishi smiled and
        said that on Sunday, there would be No Mercy!

        X-Pac came out to the middle of the ring and called out Mr. Ass! When
        Mr. Ass came out, he laughed at X-Pac, only to be hit from behind by
        Eddie Guerrero, who had a huge wrap on his leg! As X-Pac beat on Mr.
        Ass, Chris Jericho ran out and started pounding on X-Pac with fists and
        a steel chair! Finally, the referees were able to restrain Y2J!

        Mr. Ass ran in to Commissioner Foley's office and demanded a piece of
        Eddie Guerrero. Foley replied by making a match for Mr. Ass against
        Eddie Guerrero at No Mercy!

        The Dudley Boyz took on Los Conquistadors, who J.R. said reminded him a
        lot of Edge and Christian. The match was surprisingly even, with the
        mysterious men in gold really taking it to the Dudley Boyz. After D-Von
        testified with a flying headbutt to the groin of one of the
        Conquistadors, Buh Buh called for a table! Before the table came out,
        one of the Conquistadors hit Buh Buh from behind and rolled him up for
        the win!

        The Road Dogg faced Right to Censor member Mr. Val Venis in a physical
        affair. The D-O-Double G really took it to Venis, but Val came back and
        started stomping on Road Dogg with his white shoes. After being locked
        in several submission holds, the Dogg came back and beat Mr. Venis when
        Naked Mideon ran out and distracted Val, allowing the Dogg to get the
        pin! Mideon even helped the Dogg out and laid out Mr. Steven Richards!

        Stephanie pounded on Kurt Angle's locker room door, telling him he
        wasn't focused. Angle looked overwhelmed and sighed deeply when
        Stephanie kept telling him he needed to focus more so he could beat The
        Rock.

        Stephanie then introduced next Sunday's HEAT host, the man who will
        interview The Rock and then beat him for the Federation Title, her new
        business associate, Kurt Angle!

        Angle said it was that the Joe Louis arena was famous, but not because
        it was where Stone Cold was ran down, but because it is the arena that
        Kurt Angle made his debut in! Stephanie said she would lead Kurt to the
        title, just like she led her husband there! Then Kurt went to the ring,
        where he would team with Edge and Christian against the Hardy Boyz and
        The Rock!

        The three-way tag team main event was action-packed. The Rock came out
        with his fists flying, nailing Edge and Christian and begging Kurt Angle
        to get into the ring. Angle got the tag and pummeled The Rock, as Triple
        H watch on from his locker room. As The Rock continued to be held back
        from making the tag, Edge came in and mocked the Hardys! The Rock was
        finally able to make the tag, and Matt Hardy entered the fracas and took
        out both Edge and Christian, even nearly pinning Edge! Again, Angle got
        the tag and had several near-falls on the isolated Matt Hardy. After
        recovering from some severe blows, Matt was able to tag in The Rock! The
        Rock was a house on fire, and had Angle pinned, but the referee was
        distracted by the Hardys and Lita fighting Edge and Christian on the
        outside of the ring. When the ref turned around to make the count,
        Stephanie pulled The Rock's leg, ending the count. Then, Jeff Hardy went
        to hit Angle with a Swanton Bomb, but Stephanie hit him in the knee
        before he could! Lita saw what she did, but Stephanie took the Women's
        Champions and slammed her into the ring stairs!

        When all was said and done, Kurt Angle pinned The Rock for the win, with
        a lot of help from his partner Stephanie! The two celebrated as RAW went
        off the air!

        >> NITRO REPORT
        By WCW.COM

        Mark Jindrak and Sean O'Haire d. The Boogie Knights
        The show started out with a match for the WCW World Tag Team Titles.
        DISQO and Wright talked smack on the mic before the action got underway.
        The challengers came out strong, sending their bigger opponents around
        the ring with quick, double-teaming maneuvers. After the patented double
        leapfrog, Jindrak and O'Haire took over on DISQO, with Jindrak bringing
        the Knight off the top with a huge Frankensteiner. Mickey Jay was
        knocked to the canvas as DISQO delivered the Chartbuster. Kronik ran in
        and gave both Boogie Knights the High Time, setting Jindrak and O'Haire
        up to retain their gold.

        Backstage, Kevin Nash told the Natural Born Thrillers to go talk to The
        Cat and not to book him for a match on the show.

        Outside, Goldberg arrived to the arena on his motorcycle.

        Backstage, The Thrillers came into The Cat's office. Sanders got a
        little overzealous and booked a match with Kevin Nash against Sting.
        Miller went one step further and made it a Lumberjack Match.

        Team Canada with Major Gunns d. Lieutenant Loco, Sgt. A-WALL, and
        Corporal Cajun
        Storm said the country of Australia was wearing thin on his nerves. He
        demanded that the Canadian national anthem play, but it was interrupted
        by the music of The MIA. A-WALL, Cajun, and Loco came to the ring, but
        conspicuous by his absence was their leader, General Rection. As the
        match got underway, Rection ran in from the crowd, pulling Storm off the
        apron to brawl, before WCW officials took the General to the back. Loco
        made a hot tag with A-WALL, who cleaned house on the entire Team Canada.
        With Loco back in, the Canadians once again gained the advantage. All
        six men hit the ring, with Duggan and A-WALL fighting up the aisle.
        Prime Time was put through a table on the outside. Major Gunns slid a
        chair into Cajun, but it backfired as it was dropkicked into his face.
        In the end, Storm took the win for his team after applying the single
        leg crab.

        Handicapped Match
        No Contest - "The Franchise" Shane Douglas with Torrie Wilson vs. The
        Filthy Animals
        Douglas bragged to the crowd that the United States defeated the
        Australians in every event in the Olympics. He challenged Konnan and the
        rest of The Animals to come to the ring for a handicapped match. The
        Filthy Animals came out and accepted, with Konnan promising to show
        Torrie what a real man was all about. In the ring, The Animals
        brutalized Shane as Tygress and Rey gave him a dual "face full of
        stuff". The Franchise pulled out mace and sprayed Konnan and Mysterio in
        the eyes before he and Torrie ran Tygress into the metal guardrail. With
        Konnan handcuffed to the ropes, Rey was destroyed, with only Charles
        Robinson there to try and cover him from more punishment.

        Backstage, as Palumbo and Stasiak argued about their loss to Goldberg
        last week, Kevin Nash arrived, telling them to shake hands and get over
        it.

        Backstage, Billy Kidman arrived and helped the medics load Rey Mysterio
        into an ambulance.

        "That 70's Guy" Mike Awesome and Crowbar d. The Perfect Event
        Big Sexy sat down with the announcers to add color to the commentary.
        Crowbar and Awesome worked over Palumbo early, squashing him with a
        moonsault and big splash combo for a near fall. That 70's Guy took to
        the air with a dive over the ropes to the outside, bringing Stasiak and
        Palumbo to the floor. Crowbar was in trouble as the Perfect Event
        doubled on him on their side of the ring. "Perfectshawn" delivered a
        superplex off the top turnbuckle on Awesome, but dropped the ball as he
        hit Palumbo on accident after Mike ducked a punch. Awesome got the
        pinfall on Stasiak for the win, prompting "Coach" Nash to enter the
        ring. He forced his two men to hug in the ring, even though they were
        hot at each other.

        Backstage, Shane Douglas challenged Booker T to a match for later in the
        show. Torrie called Pamela a bitch before walking away, to which Pam
        replied that it "took one to know one."

        Backstage, David Flair asked Mike Sanders to book him in a DNA Match
        against Buff Bagwell. Sanders said he would at Havoc, but told Flair
        that he had a different job for him later in the show.

        Kwee Wee with Paisley d. Johnny The Bull
        As the bell rang, Kwee Wee backed Johnny into the corner, bringing him
        out with a monkey flip. The Bull seemed to have injured his ankle on the
        move, giving Kwee Wee the opportunity to cover and score the quick win.

        Interview: The Cat
        Miller came out and immediately told Mark Madden that he "hated his fat
        ass." The commissioner and Ms. Jones proceeded to dance all over the
        ring, before Miller called for the music to stop. He called Mike Sanders
        to the ring, saying that they needed to put an end to the "dual
        commissioners." Sanders said that he would not fight The Cat on Nitro,
        but would face him for the commissioner's job at Halloween Havoc. After
        an exchange of insults, Kronik came out to take out The Cat. Goldberg's
        music played, and as Adams and Clark turned around on the stage to face
        him, he came through the crowd and headed into the ring. Goldberg told
        Kronik that they were both "next."

        WCW World Title Match
        Booker T d. "The Franchise" Shane Douglas with Torrie Wilson
        Scott Steiner joined the announcers at ringside, putting Torrie Wilson
        down. Backstage, Konnan told Tygress to wait in the back, as he had
        something to take care of. Booker started off on the offense, dropping
        Douglas to the mat twice with two big sidekicks. T brought Shane to the
        outside, but was reversed on a whip to the guardrail, slamming into it
        himself. Douglas focused on the upper body and neck of Booker, slowing
        the champion down. Booker fired back with a scissors kick, a sidekick,
        and a spinarooni. Kidman came out and grabbed Douglas, but was knocked
        off the apron and into Midajah at ringside. Steiner took exception and
        blasted Kidman from behind. Konnan and Jarrett joined the brawl outside
        the ring, as Booker hit the Bookend for the win over Douglas.

        Pamela Paulshock Interview: Scott Steiner with Midajah and Jeff Jarrett
        Midajah berated Billy Kidman in a different language, as Steiner echoed
        her sentiments in English. Big Poppa told Kidman that he would pay for
        running into Midajah. Jeff Jarrett told Konnan that he would put him in
        the hospital next to Mysterio.

        Goldberg d. David Flair
        The Nature Boy Ric Flair joined the commentators at ringside, as David
        awaited his opponent. Goldberg's music played, and the mystery was over.
        The young Flair jumped Bill from behind, but was immediately speared to
        the canvas. One Jackhammer for the road, and the streak continued. After
        Goldberg left the ring, Flair got up to help his son.

        Pamela Paulshock Interview: Billy Kidman and Konnan
        Kidman said he would take the challenge from Steiner. Konnan told
        Jarrett that he was going to take out his anger for Douglas on The
        Chosen One.

        "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner with Midajah d. Billy Kidman
        Big Poppa beat up an Australian fan at ringside before locking up with
        Kidman. Steiner used his power to his advantage, whipping Billy hard
        from corner to corner. After delivering a Samoan drop from the top rope,
        the Steiner Recliner was all that was needed to give Scott Steiner
        another check in the win column.

        "The Chosen One" Jeff Jarrett d. Konnan with Tygress
        As Konnan went through his pre match ritual on the mic, Jarrett
        attacked, getting this challenge match underway. The Chosen One brought
        a chair across Konnan's back several times on the outside, before
        heading back in. Tygress set up to deliver a "face full of stuff" on
        Jarrett, but Douglas came out and grabbed her by the hair. She slapped
        Torrie and Shane across the face, before getting blasted by Jarrett's
        guitar after Konnan ducked out of the way from Jeff's attack. The Chosen
        One brought K-Dogg down with The Stroke to get the 1-2-3. Jarrett
        applied the Scorpion Deathlock after the match in yet another attempt to
        get under Sting's skin.

        A clip was shown of Kevin Nash's visit to one of Australia's brewing
        companies. At the end of the day, the higher ups designed Big Sexy his
        very own Bottle label for "Big Sexxxxy Brew."

        Lumberjack Match
        "Big Sexy" Kevin Nash d. Sting
        Nash backed Sting into the corner on the first lockup, delivering a
        series of big knees and elbows. The Stinger slid down the back of Nash
        on a bodyslam attempt, throwing some heavy punches to the head of the
        "coach." Sting was able to turn Nash over in the Scorpion Deathlock, but
        The Natural Born Thrillers pulled their mentor to the ropes for the
        break. On a splash attempt, Sting was caught with a huge boot to the
        face, swinging the match back into Big Sexy's hands. Scott Steiner ran
        to ringside and jumped on Booker T, prompting the entire locker room to
        brawl from ringside to the back. Charles Robinson was knocked down in
        the ring, as Jeff Jarrett snuck up to ringside with his guitar. When
        Sting ran in for another splash, Nash ducked and Jeff took the
        six-stringer over The Stinger's head. Big Sexy fell on top of Sting just
        as Robinson awoke to count the tainted three-count.
