Match #2 - Hollywood Backlot Brawl
"Rowdy" Roddy Piper def. Goldust
Notes: The match started in a backlot, and then the two chased each other to the arena and got there after the 5th match. Piper beat the crap out of Goldust until Marlena got him out.

Match #3
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin
w/Ted DiBiase
def. Savio Vega via TKO (10:38)
Notes: Austin won when the referee was knocked out and DiBiase gave him the Million Dollar Championship belt to use on Vega. Austin slapped on a sleeper hold and Vega's arm dropped three times.

Match #4
The Ultimate Warrior def. Hunter Hearst Helmsley
w/Sable
via Pinfall (1:38)
Notes: Dumbass Warrior (whom I have never liked nor ever thought highly of) got the victory over Hunter. I give all the credit to Hunter, for ever agreeing to do this job. After the match, Pettengil talked to the new guy, Marc Mero. HHH and Sable walked by, and HHH got in Mero's face.

Match #5
The Undertaker
w/Paul Bearer
def. Diesel via Pinfall (16:43)
Notes: Diesel hit 'Taker with everything in his arsenal, but two jackknives weren't enough. Undertaker ended up finishing of Diesel with the Tombstone.

Match #6 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship - Iron Man Match
Shawn Michaels
Challenger
w/Jose Lothario
def. Bret "Hitman" Hart
Champion
via Pinfall (1:01:52)
Notes: The damn match was over. Bret had Shawn in the Sharpshooter with 30 seconds left. Michaels would have given up, but when time expired, Bret released the hold and started to leave. That punk Monsoon ordered a sudden death period. And with no falls going down in 60 minutes, one happens in less than two in overtime. This was the first Bret Hart screwjob, in my opinion. A fantastic match though, except for this ending. They should have started the overtime period with Michaels in the Sharpshooter to be fair. I think the funniest part of the match was when Jose Lothario got knocked on his ass and the crowd laughed theirs off. But in the end: Screw you, Michaels, and nice job dropping an F-Bomb on live PPV.
