"Road Dogg" Jesse James
def. "The Dudley Boyz"
(D-Von & Bubba Ray Dudley)
Notes: The Dudleyz had to win via table and DX had to win via dumpster. DX won the match, but the ref was checking on Tori, so the Dudleyz were able to get out of the dumpster. Tori was the last one they needed to put through a table, but she hid in the dumpster. The Dudleyz went after her but DX nailed them with chairs and they fell into the dumpster. Dogg and X-Pac left, not knowing Tori was still out there. The Dudleyz put her through a table.

The Rock
The Undertaker

def. Triple H
Vince McMahon
Shane McMahon
via Pinfall (17:54)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Rock pinned Vince. This was a match in which the title was on the line in a tag match. If Rock, Undertaker, or Kane pinned any member of the other team, that person would win the title. Triple H lost the title without being pinned at all.
