Vader &
Mankind

Challengers
w/Paul Bearer
DRAW Owen Hart &
The British Bulldog

Champions
via Dbl Countout (15:50)
Notes: Mankind slapped the Mandible Claw on the Bulldog, and wouldn't let it go, even after they tumbled out of the ring. Since they were the legal men, they were counted out.

Match #5 - Submission Match
Bret "Hitman" Hart def. "Stone Cold" Steve Austin via TKO (22:03)
Notes: This was a hell of a match, probably the best of this era. Austin was tough, but Bret beat the snot out of him and got the Sharpshooter on. With blood pouring down his face, Austin tried to break it, but to no avail. Shamrock stopped the match because Austin was unconscious. Bret then made his heel turn by laying in a few cheap shots after the bell until Ken Shamrock intervened.

Match #6 - Chicago Street Fight
Ahmed Johnson &
"The Legion of Doom"

(Hawk & Animal)
def. Faarooq
Savio Vega
Crush

w/Nation of Domination
via Pinfall (10:46)
Notes: Animal pinned Crush. The match itself wasn't bad, but the fact that it followed such a magnificent contest didn't help it.

Match #7 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship
The Undertaker
Challenger
def. Sycho Sid
Champion
via Pinfall (21:19)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- That bastard Shawn Michaels joined commentary, and his 'injured' knee looked quite fine. Before Sid and 'Taker got going, Bret Hart came out and vented a little bit until Sid powerbombed him. Bret came back down to ringside and hit Sid with a chair, and then got in Sid's face on the apron. Sid grabbed him, and Bret just dropped, pulling Sid's throat down onto the top rope. This was right in front of Hebner, but I guess that wasn't powerful enough for a DQ. But it was enough for Undertaker to get in the Tombstone, and it was over.
