• Vince McMahon Interview
-Vince and Shane McMahon made their ways out, along with Gerald Brisco, Pat Patterson, Commissioner Slaughter, and The Big Bossman. Vince said a damn fool was a person that doesn't kiss the boss' ass. He introduced The Rock, and as The Rock made his way out, the fans chanted, "Rocky Sucks." The Rock said that his phone was ringing off the hook the last day, and people were asking him why he sold out. He said all of the fans were pieces of trailor park trash, saying we work everyday from 9:00am-5:00pm on minimum wage. The Rock was talking about how he never forgot how the fans chanted, "Rocky Sucks" and "Die Rocky Die." He said he plans on layin' the smack down on us, with the most devastating move - The Corparete Elbow. He said he would rather kiss Vince's ass than the fans'. Vince directed our attention to the Titan Tron, to show us footage from Survivor Series. Stone Cold Steve Austin was shown on the screen instead, entering the building. Austin was taken off the screen, and the McMahon's and The Rock recapped the master plan they built. Austin came down to the ring. Austin had positive feedback from the fans that The Rock was a sell-out. He pulled out a contract that stated he would get a Heavyweight Title shot against The Rock later in the night, and even had Shane McMahon's words on the Titan Tron, that said, "Austin would get a title shot the day after Survivor Series." Vince and Shane said Austin already had his shot, but Judge Mills Lane appeared on the screen, saying that on November 2, Shane McMahon signed a contract that would let Austin get a title shot on Raw is War.

The Rock got out quickly and tried to go to the back, until Austin hit him with a clothes-line. Austin got thrown into the crowd and he and The Rock started brawling through there.
