Bradshaw was going for the powerbomb but Benoit rolled out. Benoit went to capitalize, but JBL caught him in a school boy and won.
Match 2. Extreme Rules - Foley vs. Flair
These two men literally hate each other. So, I put them in a match where they can exude the most pain on each other. Foley fell to the outside. He grabbed a garbage can and began chasing Flair. Later, Flair pulled a ladder out from under the ring. More weapons were added to the match. Foley locked in the Mandible Claw to win.

Match 5. WWE vs. WCW - Kane, Triple H and Test vs. Show, Scott Hall and Warrior
Once enemies, Hall and Warrior are teaming up for the greater good against WWE tonight. This is not an elimination match; one fall to a finish. Hall and Triple H were the legal men. They looked like they didn't want to face each other. They eventually did as Triple H hit him with the Pedigree. All 6 men got involved throughout the match. Triple H hit a Pedigree on Show and got the win.
After the match, Test and Kane shook hands. It looks like they are an official team.

After the match, Triple H, Angle and X-Pac came out. HHH signaled that he wants Taker's title.

Later, both men were on the ladder again. Ultimo hit a modified RKO from the top. He climbed back up and pulled down both titles.
Match 4. 6-pack Challenge - Rock vs. Austin vs. Triple H vs. DDP vs. Goldberg vs. Sting
These six men are, in my opinion, six of the top 20 Superstars in modern wrestling times (1996-now). Austin was the first eliminated as Rock flipped him over the top. Sting was busted open from Triple H's knee smash. Rock pushed HHH out of the ring. Rock then tossed out DDP for his third elimination. Goldberg was on the apron and Sting punched him off.

Main Event. Last Man Standing - Angle vs. Undertaker WWF Championship
This match is going to be brutal. I'm guessing it will go 15 minutes. About a minute into the match, JBL ran down and attacked both men. Taker hit Angle with two fall away slams. About two minutes later, he hit the Last Ride. Angle was able to hit the Angle Slam. Taker wasn't affected as he hit a Tombstone to win. The match lasted 5:59. I was way off.
After the match, Angle low blowed Taker.
Recap: I was looking forward to seeing both tag titles with WWE teams. The cage match was really good. The LMS match was too short.
RVD is making is first appearance on Raw. Rey is back on Raw for one night only. About four minutes into the match, Rey hit a Lous Thesz Press. RVD hit a heel kick and the 5-star Frog Splash. RVD then hit a belly-to-belly suplex which led to a pin and won.
This is an odd pairing of Angle, Gunn and Triple H. Angle and Triple H were partners, then enemies and now it seems like they are on the same page again. JBL is Hardy's partner! JBL was brought to the outside and went after Triple H. Mr. Ass hit the Fame-Asser on JBL but only a 2 count. Triple H distracted the ref on multiple occasions.

Two of the best tag teams in all of pro wrestling. There are tables surrounding all four sides of the ring. As if the tables weren't enough, a chair was laying in the middle of the ring. Jeff hit the Twist of Fate and then the Whisper in the Wind on Mr. Ass. Jeff is on fire! He hit the Swanton Bomb on Dogg. Matt set up a table and Jeff slammed Mr. Ass through it to win the titles.

Savage received a chair shot and began bleeding. After about 10 minutes of neither man climbing a ladder, Jericho pulled down his title to retain.
Match 4. nWo vs. 4 Horsemen WCW Tag Team Championship
Benoit and Nash start the match, but Hall was quickly tagged in. Benoit and Malenko were double teaming Nash outside the ring. After receiving a long beating, Hall tagged in Nash. Benoit hit the Three Amigos. Nash hit the Jackknife on Malenko but instead of going for the pin, he brought in the steps. Malenko reversed the second Jackknife. Benoit had Nash in the Crossface but he broke out. Nash hit a swinging neck breaker on Benoit and won.
Match 5. Hell in a Cell - Taker vs. Angle vs. Triple H WWF Championship
Since both men won #1 contender's matches, they are both getting a title shot. All three men got their shots in. Taker hit Triple H with a Tombstone. Angle then hit HHH with three German suplexes and then an Angle Slam. Taker was going for a chokeslam but Triple H reversed it. Triple H hit Angle with the Pedigree. After the finishers, it went back to a grapple fest. After another round of finishers, Angle knocked Triple H out with the Angle Slam.
Main Event. Cage - Goldberg vs. Steiner WCW Championship
I'm hoping that Goldberg retains. He hit Steiner with a military press. Steiner returned the favor with a running power slam. Steiner was climbing the cage and Goldberg went to bring him down twice. Both times Steiner threw him down. He finished climbing and won the belt.
Recap: The WWF tag match was really good. The finish was underwhelming. The ladder match took so f'n long. They didn't even attempt to grab the title for about 10 minutes. I thought that the Four Horsemen were going to win the tag titles on multiple occasions. The Hell in the Cell was the greatest AI-fought match I've seen. That was a quick cage match.

The newly-turned Edge and Christian get a title shot. I wonder if X-Pac will interfere in the match. Edge and Christian were working well as a team. X-Pac made his first appearance as he gave Mr. Ass some advice. A few minutes later NAO were in control, beating down both Edge and Christian. Gunn made the hot tag to Dogg and Edge did the same. The Outlaws retain after a double gut buster to Christian.

Match 5. Inferno - Undertaker vs. Kane WWF Championship
How appropriate is it that these two are in an inferno match? The temperature reached 500 degrees a couple of times early in the match, but nothing happened. The fourth time it reached the high point, Taker threw Kane through the fire to retain the belt.
Main Event. Hell in a Cell - Nash vs. Goldberg WCW Championship
This is the payoff of weeks of build for this match. Nash hit two chokeslams but no pin attempt. Goldberg hit a Jackhammer and got a long 2-count. Goldberg was taking out all the stops trying to win the belt. Nash hit him with the Jackknife. Out of nowhere, Goldberg hit the spear but Nash reversed the Jackhammer.

Main Event. Last Man Standing - Nash vs. Goldberg WCW Championship
How fitting that after what Nash did to Goldberg on Nitro that they are in a LMS match. As Goldberg was heading to the ring, Steiner attacked him from behind.

Goldberg couldn't get up from that and Nash retained.
