Sunday Night Heat Match
Chavo Guerrero def. Scotty 2 Hotty via Pinfall (6:46)
Notes: WCW gets the first win.

Match #1
Edge &
def. Lance Storm &
Mike Awesome
via Pinfall (10:09)
Notes: Awesome had Edge up on his shoulders when Christian came in with a spear. Edge fell on top of Awesome and got the pin.

Match #2
Earl Hebner
w/WWF Referees
def. Nick Patrick
w/WCW Referees
via Pinfall (2:50)
Notes: Mick Foley was the guest referee. After some brawling outside the ring, Foley sent the extra WCW refs to the back, and that didn't sit well with Patrick. He was jawing with Foley and Hebner picked up the win. Patrick did more yelling at Foley until Mr. Socko ended the debate.

Match #3
"The APA"
(Faarooq & Bradshaw)
def. Chuck Palumbo &
Sean O'Haire
via Pinfall (7:16)
Notes: Bradshaw pinned Palumbo after the Clothesline From Hell. The veteran experience beat the youthful strength.

Match #4
Billy Kidman def. X-Pac via Pinfall (7:12)
Notes: X-Pac got a little cocky and instead of the Bronco-Buster, he got a boot to the balls. Kidman then won with the Shooting Star Press.

Match #5
Raven def. William Regal via Pinfall (6:33)
Notes: Raven couldn't do it cleanly, and Tazz came down and took out Regal. What a besmirchment by these ECW thugs.

Match #6 - Six-Man Tag Team Match
Shawn Stasiak
Hugh Morrus
Chris Kanyon
def. The Big Show
"The One" Billy Gunn
via Pinfall (4:22)
Notes: Morrus pinned Gunn. A chaotic match, and the WCW referee was pretty fair. Show gave chokeslams all around to avenge the loss.

Match #7
Tajiri def. Tazz via Pinfall (5:43)
Notes: Tajiri hit Tazz with the green mist and after a quick kick to the chops got the pinfall.

Match #8 - WWF Hardcore Championship
Rob Van Dam
def. Jeff Hardy
via Pinfall (12:30)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- I'm not a fan of Jeff Hardy or RVD, but I'll give them both credit. This match gave some credibility back to the Hardcore Championship.

Match #9 - Tag Team Bra & Panties Match
Trish Stratus
& Lita
def. Torrie Wilson &
Stacy Keibler
Notes: Mick Foley was the guest referee, the lucky SOB. Stacy and Torrie look great, but they had zero experience and no chance.

"Team WCW/ECW"
Booker T
Diamond Dallas Page
D-Von Dudley
Bubba Ray Dudley
w/Shane McMahon, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley, Paul Heyman
def. "Team WWF"
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Kurt Angle
The Undertaker
Chris Jericho
w/Vince McMahon
via Pinfall (29:02)
Notes: Kurt Angle was on fire, taking out Shane, Bubba Ray, and getting the Olympic Slam on Booker T. He went for the cover but that bastard Austin turned on the WWF and kicked Kurt in the head. One Stunner later, he threw Book on top of Kurt and the WCW/ECW Alliance got the enormous victory.
