Stephanie then finished off Trish by rubbing her face in the soiled mat of slop!! Stephanie hugged her father and the two left the ring re-united as a family. As we headed to a commercial, Trish was shown heaving and sobbing in the middle of the ring, obviously embarrased that she was swerved by the McMahon’s & William Regal. Coming back from the break, JR reminded us with a replay of how Trish was set up and utterly humiliated.
Backstage, Michael Cole tried to ask Trish how she was feeling, after being humilated by Stephanie & Vince. Trish shoved Cole away and ran out of the camera shot. What a dork that Michael Cole is!! Match 5 : WWF Light Heavyweight Title MatchTaka Michinoku (w/Funaki) vs. Dean Malenko (c) Before the match started, Taka introduced his new girlfriend to Dean Malenko, and told Dean that he wasn’t the only Ladies Man in the WWF.

Taka hit a doublefoot dropkick to Malenko’s face, and gained a near fall. Dean battled back and placed Taka on the top rope and tried to hit a reverse suplex. Taka hit Dean with a reverse elbow to the face of Malenko and called for the Michinoku Driver.

Dean grabbed his belt and left the ring without incident. Winner & Still WWF Light Heavyweight Champion: Dean Malenko by submission Kurt Angle was interviewed by Kevin Hermie Kelly backstage. Angle said that he wanted to show his new side in the upcoming Hardcore Title match.

Its True..Its True! ** Commercial Break** The Right To Censor pulled up in the arena garage and forced the newly remade Kat to walk to the arena. Kat was not happy as she was crying. Raven hit the ring and said that he was going to allow the fans to genuflect on his greatest Hardcore moment..he recalled smashing a cinder block across the head of Al Snow..turning Crash Holly into a snivelling, whining brat… Y2J came out and interrupted Raven by recalling his favorite Raisin moment..his swirlie toilet moment..the time he bought his fashionable leather pants..or the time he told him to Shut the hell up! and Y2J ran to the ring and started the match.
Match 6 : WWF Intercontinental Title MatchRaven vs. Chris Jericho (c) Y2J jump-started the match by attacking Raven with an arial assault.

Ross told us that The King had left the table to prepare for his match with the APA against the Right To Censor and showed us how the Kat became the newest member of RTC. Backstage, The Coach tried to interview RTC, but Steven Richards said that The Kat — or Stacy — was not being held against her will as some have said because she was responsible for her own demise last night when she knocked out Jerry Lawler with the Women’s Title belt.
The Kat Stacy Carter tried to say she didn’t want to be part of the RTC but Ivory grabbed her hair and silenced her quickly by force. Kurt Angle was shown preparing for his match against The Big Show & The Rock. The cameras switched to show Big Show nailing two lockers with the names Angle & Rock on them.

Bradshaw tagged in and took the fight to Bull Buchanan, but was quickly beaten down in the corner of the RTC. Even though he was being triple-teamed, Bradshaw fought back and hit a fall-away slam on Val Venis. Outside the ring, the Kat jumped on Ivory and tried to choke her out. Steven quickly stopped the Kat’s attack, and he and the other members of the RTC took her to the back. Inside the ring, King got the win by pinning the remaining member of RTC left in the ring.
There was so much action, I missed who the losing member of RTC was..Sorry! Winner s: Jerry The King Lawler & The APA by pinfall Main Event time on RAW is WAR — The Triple-Threat Hardcore Title Match. JR said he thought the new attitude of Kurt Angle was menacing, as he threatened to do everything in his power to make sure the Rock wouldn’t be walking anywhere after their match tonight. Let me get this straight — Big Show is sent down to Ohio Valley Wrestling to lose weight and his attitude..he comes back fatter and with a larger attitude problem, and he is rewarded with a Hardcore Title push? I don’t get it..oh well — Onto the Match!! Match 8 : WWF Hardcore Triple-Threat Title Match The Rock vs. Kurt Angle vs. The Big Show (c) The Rock entered the ring,and immediately faced off with the former WWF Champion Kurt Angle.
