his opponent would be at In Your House. McMahon said he hadn't made his
mind up yet. McMahon said Austin will know soon who his opponent will be. Austin talked about
the fact that McMahon hates him because of the way that he acts. Austin said he thinks
McMahon wants to be the WWF champion himself. Austin then said that he'll put the
WWF title on the line on this show. Austin then challenged McMahon to be the man
he faces for the title. McMahon said he wouldn't do it. Austin then said that if he didn't want the match, he had to pick a WWF official to fight him for the title.

his mind. Austin said McMahon can't leave because he's already beaten
up his limo driver and the limo has 4 flat tires. Austin
then left the ring with McMahon in shock.
