The Godfather
Champion
w/Hos
def. Goldust
Challenger
w/Blue Meanie
via Pinfall (5:21)
Notes: The Godfather is the worst IC champ ever. And that is saying something when you look at some of the champs: Dean Douglas, Test, Albert, Val Venis, Road Dogg, etc. The title was whored out to nearly anyone in this era.

Match #5 - Boiler Room Brawl

Notes: Mankind escaped the boiler room but Test and Big Boss Man were waiting to beat him down. Show recovered and chased off Boss Man while Foley used Mr. Socko on Test.

Match #6
Triple H
w/Chyna
def. X-Pac via Pinfall (19:18)
Notes: Kane did a run-in and got in a few cheap shots on Triple H and Chyna. X-Pac did Shane's bronco-buster on Hunter and Chyna, but while he was on Chyna Hunter recovered and finished off X-Punk.

Match #7
The Undertaker
w/Paul Bearer
def. Ken Shamrock via Pinfall (18:49)
Notes: Bradshaw and Bearer distracted Kenny, but Undertaker got the relatively clean victory. After the bell, Bradshaw did a number on Ken with a baseball bat. But as for the match, nothing much to write home about. Kenny is a technical wrestler while 'Taker is more of a power wrestler. Just didn't seem to be much chemistry between the two in the ring.

Match #8 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship - No Holds Barred Match
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Champion
def. The Rock
Challenger
via Pinfall (17:07)
Notes: Shane McMahon was the guest referee, and if Austin laid a finger on him, Austin would be DQed and stripped of the title. This was mainly a bout for Austin to regain his "Smoking Skull Belt" from the Rock. Vince later came down and knocked out Shane, and had Hebner count the match. It was Vince who gave Austin his belt back. After the match, the Undertaker hijacked the McMahon limo with Stephanie still in the back.
