The Secret Service told Okerlund and Heenan to leave because it was a restricted area. Walking into the arena, as President, was none other than Hollywood Hogan. Hogan walked down toward the ring, along with Eric Bischoff and The Secret Service, with music playing, ballons falling, confetti, ballons, and a gigantic United States Flags.

• Rey Mysterio, Jr. defeated Eddie Guerrero via Pinfall.
-Before the match, Eddie Guerrero once again offered Rey Mysterio, Jr. an LWO T-Shirt. Mysterio did not accept. Guerrero mainly worked on Mysterio's knee.

Guerrero continued with the advantage, as Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Pepe made their ways in. Guerrero was distracted by Chavo (who was on the apron), and was pushed into Chavo by Mysterio. Chavo flew into the guard rail, while Mysterio rolled up Eddie for the win. LWO members made their ways in. They began to attack Chavo, until Mysterio made the save.

-Eric Bischoff briefly discussed Hollywood Hogan's presdential running. Bischoff said Ric Flair wouldn't wrestle, since Flair didn't pass his physical. After J.J. Dillon fined Scott Steiner and Buff Bagwell, Bischoff said he would change things. Three of Bischoff's associates walked out. Bischoff told David Groom, who controls the money in WCW, he had no right to authorize a deduction from Scott Steiner's and Buff Bagwell's contract. The other two also had something to do with the authorization. Bischoff kicked all of his associates down, and beat on them.

• Scott Steiner and Buff Bagwell Interview.
-Before the match, WCW referee, Mickey Jay said WCW referees would have nothing to do with Scott Steiner anymore. Steiner bragged about how the women are all over him. Buff Bagwell criticized the injuries of referee Nick Patrick and J.J. Dillon. Bagwell said with all the money he and Steiner make, they would just buy their own referee. Steiner said after he called out Roddy Piper the week before, Piper got scared and no-showed. Steiner called out anyone. Chris Adams made his way in. Adams was taken out by both Bagwell and Steiner, and no one was officiating the match. Stiener put Adams in the Steiner Recliner, but immediately left the ring, along with Bagwell, the moment Rick Steiner ran down. Rick challenged Scott and Bagwell to a Tag Team Title match. Steiner and Bagwell accepted.

• Rick Steiner and Mrs. Judy Bagwell vs. Scott Steiner and Buff Bagwell went to a No-Contest.
-Rick Steiner's partner was suprisingly Mrs. Judy Bagwell (Buff's mom). Judy had the belt around her waist, and she and Rick completely took out Scott Steiner and Buff. Scott said he and Buff left the ring, and said they wouldn't wrestle the match because there was no referee. Buff told his mom to watch out, because he pays the bills. Rick and Judy challenged Scott and Buff to a Tag Team Title match for World War III. Buff and Scott accepted. Rick said they'll bring the Tag Team Titles, while Buff and Scott bring the referee.

-Chris Jericho was with his security guard, Ralphus. Jericho's hair was curled, and sticking up in the front. Jericho put down the Long Island crowd. Jericho pointed out he was supposedly 4-0 and Goldberg. Jericho said Ralphus told him Goldberg was not the arena, so Goldberg was supposedly not man enough to step up to Jericho.
