Sunday Night Heat Match
"X-Factor"
(X-Pac & Justin Credible)
w/Albert
def. Steve Blackman &
Grandmaster Sexay
via Pinfall (2:40)
Notes: X-Pac pinned Blackman.

Match #1 - WWF Intercontinental Championship
Chris Jericho
Champion
def. William Regal
Challenger
via Pinfall (7:07)
Notes: Jericho used the ropes to get out of the Regal Stretch, and won the match with a suplex-lionsault combo.

Match #2 - Six-Man Tag Team Match
Tazz &
"The Acolytes"

(Faarooq & Bradshaw)
w/Jacqueline
def. "Right To Censor"
Val Venis
Bull Buchanan
The Goodfather
w/Steven Richards
via Pinfall (3:53)
Notes: Bradshaw pinned Goodfather. Goodfather failed to connect with the Ho Train, and Bradshaw quickly capitalized with the Clothesline From Hell.

Match #3 - WWF Hardcore Championship - Triple Threat Match
Kane
Challenger
def. The Big Show
Challenger
Raven
Champion
via Pinfall (9:19)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- The match started even before Big Show made his entrance. Well, I'd want to try and finish things off before he got in the ring, too. One cool part of the match featured Kane throwing Raven up against a wall, leaving a large imprint. Show was about to toss Raven off the stage in the entryway when Kane kicked them both off. Kane leapt down into the pit after them and pinned Big Show.

Match #4 - WWF European Championship
Eddie Guerrero
Challenger
w/Perry Saturn
def. Test
Champion
via Pinfall (8:04)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Dean Malenko and Saturn interferred.

Match #5
Kurt Angle def. Chris Benoit via Pinfall (14:01)
Notes: The best wrestling match on the card. Great moves and counter moves. Angle went for the moonsault, but Benoit got his knees up and then connected with the headbut. Benoit tried to roll up Angle, but Angle kept the momentum going into his own cover.

Match #6 - WWF Women's Championship
Chyna
Challenger
def. Ivory
Champion
via Pinfall (2:37)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- A pretty one-sided affair. Chyna just beat up on Ivory for two minutes, and I have to think they could have done something more with this match. All that buildup and history, and the climax isn't even three minutes?

Match #7 - Street Fight
Shane McMahon def. Vince McMahon
w/Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley
via Pinfall (14:11)
Notes: Shane came out and gave a shout out to the WCW wrestlers, high up in a luxury box. He then introduced Mick Foley as the special guest referee. During the match, Trish Stratus wheeled Linda McMahon down in her wheelchair, and then Trish turned on Vince and attacked Stephanie. A huge brawl ensued, including Linda getting up and kicking Vince in the grapefruits. Even Foley got in some shots. Shane went from pillar to post, kicking a garbage can in Vince's face and picking up the win.

Match #8 - WWF World Tag Team Championship - Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match
Edge & Christian
Challengers
def. "The Dudley Boyz"
(D-Von & Bubba Ray Dudley)
Champions
"The Hardy Boyz"
(Matt & Jeff Hardy)
Challengers
(15:40)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- There was interference from Spike Dudley, Lita, and Rhyno. The match was still pure carnage, and it was an unbelievable effort from all involved. Still like last year's better, though.

Match #9 - Gimmick Battle Royal
The Iron Sheik def. (See Below) (3:06)
Notes: Sgt. Slaughter should have freaking won this match, but he got his revenge by slapping the Cobra Clutch on the Iron Sheik. "Mean" Gene Okerlund and Bobby "The Brain" Heenan did commentary. I think Gillberg was to join this match to make it twenty men (or 19 men and one turkey), but didn't for whatever reason.

Match #10
The Undertaker def. Triple H via Pinfall (18:17)
Notes: Motorhead played Triple H to the ring. Didn't come off well on TV at all. Nearly a hardcore match for all the action outside the ring and the sledgehammer coming into play. Triple H hit 'Taker with it right as 'Taker was going to give him the Last Ride. Trips fought back, and was on the ropes with 'Taker in the corner when 'Taker countered with the Last Ride. That was it, and Bikertaker improves his WrestleMania record to 9-0.

Match #11 - WWF World Heavyweight Championship - No Disqualification Match
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Challenger
def. The Rock
Champion
via Pinfall (28:04)
Notes: -TITLE CHANGE- Match was really good at the beginning. Eventually, Vince McMahon came out and started helping Austin. He handed Austin a chair to use, and boy, did Austin wear it out. He really beat down the Rock. Rock kicked out a few times, but the beatdown was too much. Austin won the title, but sold out to Mr. McMahon to do it. The former arch-enemies shook hands. It was kind of a disappointing ending in the respect that it wasn't a clean finish, and it sure wasn't as exciting as a normal finisher could have been.
