-Both men began to use the guardrail and eventually went into the croud. A row of chairs was also used as Horace was near ringside saying that he was the leader.

Vincent missed with the slapjack, but Stevie Ray nailed him with it, and then put im INTO the slapjack for the win and control of the nWo Black & White.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Mark Madden was shown backstage interviewing Chris Jericho about his match later tonight. Jericho didn’t say much except how bad Saturn looked.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Kevin Nash pinned Rey Mysterio, Jr.
-As always, Nash began to hype up the crowd with his “Wolfpac in the house” saying. Mysterio did a good job taking the upper hand in the match with many spectacular maneuvers, but at one point Luger tripped him and Nash began to dominate the match. Nash finally got the Jack-Knife Powerbomb for the pin.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Jerry Flynn pinned The Cat/Sonny Onoo *Karate/Handicap Match*

Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Hak pinned Bam Bam Bigelow and Raven *Triangle Hardcore Match*
-The ring was a total mess with a ton of objects in the very beginning. Bam Bam Bigelow first took everyone down with a trash can. A ton of other things were in the ring such as a mailbox, ironing board, cookie sheet, hockey stick, fire extinguisher, and more. The crowd chanted “ECW” at times during the match. Hak kept popping up each time he was knocked down. A table was brought in, which Hak was put through. Hak caned Bam Bam Bigelow. Chastity came into the ring, to protect her brother Raven from a hit from Hak’s cane. Hak shoved Chastity out of the way and clocked Raven with the cane. Another table was brought in, which prompted Tony Schiavone to say, “There must of been a buffet before the match.” Chastity threw in some tape to Raven, which he used to wrap around the hands of Hak. Raven clocked Hak with four chair shots. Bigelow entered the ring and gave Raven Greetings from Asbury Park, but Bigelow chose not to pin him and instead grab another table. As Bigelow went for a moonsault, Chastity used the fire extinguisher on him, which caused Bigelow to crash onto a table. Out of no where, Chastity used the fire extinguisher on Raven, and turned to the side of Hak. Hak finished off Raven with a Russian Legsweep for the win.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Chris Benoit/Dean Malenko pinned Barry Windham/Curt Henning *Tag Team Championship Lumberjack Match*
-The lumberjacks consisted of Chris Adams, Prince Iaukea, Norman Smiley, Hugh Morrus, Kendall windham, Bobby Duncum, Jr., Meng, and Kenny Kaos. Both teams mostly used the lumberjacks on the outsdie to their advantage. Later in the match, Malenko put Henning in the Texas Cloverleaf, but Windham quickly made the save. Some brawling began on the outside between the lumberjacks themselves, as Arn Anderson knocked out Henning. Benoit hit his driving headbut for the pin.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Saturn pinned Chris Jericho *Dog Collar Match*
-When Saturn made his way out, he had a variation of a Marylin Manson song and was wearing make up with green contacts and a dress made out of chains. Ralphus got sent backstage because he would not listen to Jericho. At one point, Jericho strapped Saturn in his Lion Tamper, but Saturn pulled on the collar which choked Jericho. Saturn then hit two consecuative Death Valley Drivers for the pin.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Mark Madden and Chad Damiani were shown backstage interviewing Mikey Whipwreck. Whipwreck said he did a great job and was happy with his performance.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Booker T. pinned Scott Steiner *Television Championship*
-The match began with Steiner taunting Booker T. As the match progressed, Booker almost had a pin, but Bagwell pulled him out of the ring to let Steiner take the advantage. Again, when Booker went for a high-flying maneuver, Bagwell knocked him off again. As Steiner motions for Bagwell to hit Booker T. with a chair, he moves out of the way and Steiner gets nailed and covered for the pin.
Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬¢Ric Flair pinned Hollywood Hogan *First Blood/Cage Heavyweight Championship*
[If Flair wins, he is permanant President of WCW, but if Hogan wins Flair has to retire from wrestling in WCW.]
-Before the match begins, Flair tells the ref to use good judgement and not stop the match for a little scratch. Hogan gets the early advantage in the match as the cage gets lowered. At one point, Hogan hits the figure four in the middle of the ring, but releases the move. Hogan than moons Flair who is soon to be very bloody. The ref, however, does not stop the match. The crowd begins to cheer for Hogan, as he tries for a pin, but pins do not count. Flair hits Hogan with a foreign object and his head gets busted open. David Flair walks out with his girlfriend as the crowd continues to cheer for Hogan. The match continues like this for quite a while until Flair puts the Figure Four on and the ref counds for the pin. Ric Flair is the 14 time Heavyweight champion.
