The show opens with the new tag team champions X-Pac and Kane. X-Pac says that they are out there because Jeff Jarrett and Owen Hart have been whining for the past week since they lost the tag titles to them. X-Pac says he's ready to prove it wasn't a fluke by challenging them tonight. This brings out Jarrett and Hart and Debra. They insist that they weren't ready and they accept the challenge. This brings out the New Age Outlaws. Billy Gunn says that they are the true number one contenders for the tag titles. X-Pac decides to make tonight's match a 3-way for the tag titles. Everyone leaves, happy with the match-up.
Ken Shamrock is shown tearing up the backstage area.
Ken Shamrock destroyed Midian in a singles match. After the match, he continues the anklelock and demands that Midian tell him where Ryan Shamrock is. When referees run out to break the hold, Shamrock attacks them (giving a belly-to-belly suplex to Jimmy Korderas), then thrashes the surrounding ring area. He then grabs a microphone and challenges Undertaker to be there on tomorrow night's RAW in Detroit. He tells "Mark" that he is willing to die for his sister.
X-Pac hypes up Kane and tells him that they need to act like a team.
Lucas interviews the Rock and asks what he's going to do with Steve Austin's belt. The Rock says that he doesn't know why Austin wants such an ugly belt back, he'd redesign it with a Brahma Bull. The Rock promises that at Backlash he's going to win the belt properly.
Mankind pushes a cake dedicated to Mr. Socko backstage.
Jim Ross is in the ring. He announces that he will be doing play-by-play at ringside starting tomorrow at RAW. But tonight he brings out Mankind. He says that the cake shouldn't say "birthday" and instead should say "birthplace". Also he congratulates Al Snow for winning the endorsement of Laz-E-Boy which he considered strange since Snow doesn't usually sell chairs. After Mankind leads a song of "Happy Birthplace", he states that he is going to go into seclusion inside a boiler room for two weeks after which he will invite and defeat the Big Show. He then celebrates by tossing pieces of cake into the crowd.
