down wearing his usual ring attire, except for a black tie. George Martin, former
NFLer with the New York Giants, was the first to present a humanitarian award from the "M.A.N" charity. Martin said he appreciated the contribution he made
to his charity, but it had been a bit less than romised. He also said it took a while

behind and Kane came out of the casket and attacked Austin, to the delight of McMahon. Kane took
Austin and dumped him into the casket as the show ended.
