Match #1 - WWF European Championship
D'Lo Brown
Champion
def. Val Venis
Challenger
via DQ (15:23)
Notes: Val put on D'Lo's chest protector and was going to jump off the top rope when the ref, trying to stop Val, caused him to fall off. Val was ticked at the ref and later shoved him across the ring, causing the DQ.

def. "Kaientai"
Taka Michinoku
Dick Togo
Mens Teioh
Sho Funaki
w/Yamaguchi-san

Match #3 - Hair vs. Hair Match
X-Pac
w/Howard Finkel
def. Jeff Jarrett
w/Southern Justice
via Pinfall (11:10)
Notes: Federation Commissioner Sgt. Slaughter sent Southern Justice back to the locker room before the match. By losing the match, Jarrett's hair was cut off. The Headbangers, the New Age Outlaws, and Droz all came out to make sure it was done.

Match #4 - Mixed Tag Team Match
Sable &
Edge
def. Jacqueline &
"Marvelous" Marc Mero
via Pinfall (8:23)
Notes: Sable pinned Mero, even though it was a mixed- tag match, not an inter-gender tag match. Whatever.

Match #5 - Lion's Den Match
Ken Shamrock def. Owen Hart
w/Dan Severn
via Submission (9:16)
Notes: Dan Severn walked off in disgust as Shamrock reversed Owen's hold and made Owen tap out.

Match #6 - WWF World Tag Team Championship - No Holds Barred, Falls Count Anywhere Match
"The New Age Outlaws"
(Billy Gunn & Road Dogg)
Challengers
def. Mankind
Champion
via Pinfall (5:15)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Kane was a no-show to help defend the titles. Mankind really had no chance, and Gunn eventually made the pin. The NAO threw Mankind into a dumpster, and Kane was in it. Kane beat down Foley.

Match #7 - WWF Intercontinental Championship - Ladder Match
Triple H
Challenger
w/Chyna
def. The Rock
Champion
w/Mark Henry
(26:04)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Definitely one of the best ladder matches. Both men gave as much as they could. I'd say this match in on par with the old Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels ladder matches. Chris Warren and the DX band played Triple H to the ring.

Match #8 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Champion
def. The Undertaker
Challenger
via Pinfall (20:52)
Notes: Kane came out to help the Undertaker, but 'Taker waved him off. It was an outstanding match, and Austin hit the Stunner and got the pinfall. Undertaker took the title and handed it to Austin.
