The Rock came out as RAW began live at the sold-out Hartford Civic Center in Hartford, Connecticut. The "Great One" said he only had one problem and "that is a piece of 200 pound steaming, stinking piece of monkey crap, Shane McMahon!" Shane and the Corporation emerged from the back, and Shane promptly fired The Rock from the Corporation! Not only that, but Triple H, Chyna, Big Boss Man, Test and Shane himself ganged up and The Rock and assaulted him! The Rock got back up and challenged Shane to a match later on RAW, and Shane accepted!
Backstage, Vince McMahon told Mr. Brisco and Mr. Patterson that his only objective was getting back Stephanie, and Vince had brought everything to the arena that the Undertaker had asked him to bring.
In tag team action, Edge and Gangrel took on Tag Team Champions X-Pac and Kane. X-Pac delivered a spinning heel kick to the back of Edge's head, which sent Edge flying right into Kane, who dropped him with a chokeslam for the win. After the match, the Brood gave Kane a blood bath. After the lights came back on, X-Pac was the only one standing around the ring area. Kane may have thought that X-Pac had given him the blood bath, as the Big Red Machine picked up his tag team partner and chokeslammed him over the ring rail and into the crowd.
During the commercial, the Undertaker called and told Vince that he would get Stephanie back once the Undertaker had the papers McMahon had brought to the ring--but the Undertaker didn't want Vince to deliver them, he wanted Stone Cold Steve Austin to do it! Vince went out to the ring and asked the Texas Rattlesnake to help him, telling him, "Vince McMahon needs Stone Cold Steve Austin." The Federation Champion responded, "Stone Cold Steve Austin needs Vince McMahon to kiss his ass!"
Next up, Val Venis took on D'Lo Brown, accompanied by Ivory. Nicole Bass interrupted the match when she came out and told Val, "You owe me, and you know what I want." The adult film star completely forgot about the match for a moment, which gave D'Lo the opportunity to nail him with the Sky High for the win! After the match, Bass went into the ring, and Ivory jumped on her back and tried to get revenge for the chokeslam Bass gave her on HEAT. Bass just threw Ivory down to the canvas and then turned her attention to Val. Val recovered quickly and escaped to the backstage area, a terrified look in his eye.
For the second straight night, former members of D-Generation X collided as Triple H (with Chyna) took on "Badd Ass" Billy Gunn. With a large assist from Chyna, HHH was able to finish off Mr. Ass with the Pedigree.CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE
