The December 13, 1998 Edition of Heat is a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE, which took place at the General Motors Place in Vancouver, British Columbia. It was a live show that served as the lead-in to In Your House 26: Rock Bottom.
Vince McMahon opened the show. He reiterates that there is "No Chance in Hell" that Steve Austin will win the championship. He dedicates tonight's PPV to the Rock. He instructs the audience to pay homage to the Rock then he unveils giant Rock posters. He mocks Canada's bilingualism for cheap heel heat. He urges Canadian to renounce their citizenship, crawl to Washington DC and beg for American citizenship.
Backstage the Rock is being examined by a doctor who says the Rock's ribs may be too hurt for him to wrestle tonight. Mankind watches this on a monitor and he heads down to ringside. He gets a microphone and notes that the fine print of his match contract states that if the Rock fails to wrestle for any reason, then the WWF Title title becomes his.
Since Scott Taylor was injured last week at the hands of Droz, Brian Christopher faced jobber Kevin Quinn in a singles match, but was defeated by a surprised rol-up. Taylor and Christopher leave very upset.
Michaels, Big Bossman, and Ken Shamrock come out and address D-X. Michaels announces that D-X is barred from ringside during the Tag Team Titles match. He then gives the New Age Outlaws a warm-up match next.
The announcers interview Vince McMahon backstage. He explains that The Rock will not forfeit the title to Mankind, instead he will reason with him and outsmart because he's unlikely to be smarter than the average Canadian fan.
Cole showcases the grave that will feature on the PPV's Buried Alive match.
The New Age Outlaws came out for their warm-up match and their opponents are revealed to be The Acolytes. After a few minutes, Big Bossman and Ken Shamrock run-in and attack the Outlaws. Shawn Michaels runs down and saves the Outlaws while the Acolytes attack the Bossman and Shamrock. The lights go off and Undertaker's music plays. Instead of showing up, he voice-overs a threat to Austin and lightning strikes the gravestone.
