"Stone Cold" Steve Austin vs. Shawn Michaels
These two men are the tag team champions, going against one another. After these two fight all over the place, knocking out two referees in the process, a third referee comes out to disqualify both men. That doesn't stop them, though, as Michaels and Austin continue to brawl.



The Undertaker (WWF Champion) vs. Faarooq with the Nation of Domination
Savio Vega and Crush argue outside the ring, which gets Faarooq distracted. Undertaker tombstones Faarooq, and retains the title
