SINGLES MATCH The Undertaker defeated A-Train: Two referee bumps occurred and then the Undertaker won after a choke slam! Undertaker was about to power bomb A-Train when Sable got in the ring to try to stop him. Undertaker held Sable so that Stephanie McMahon could slap Sable around. Sable gave Stephanie her dreaded finisher (the evil eye) as she was leaving the ringside area..
IN THE RING Eric Bischoff: Eric Bischoff was ready to reveal what happened in Linda McMahon’s bedroom, when he addressed Vince McMahon. “What are you doing running around eating hamburgers when you’ve got a hot juicy delicious filet mignon at home?” Bischoff then said that he and Linda McMahon did it again, and again, and again..
GRUDGE MATCH: Shane McMahon defeated Eric Bischoff: Jonathan Coachman got involved and turned heel, smashing Shane McMahon with repeated chairshots! Eric Bischoff then took it upon himself to turn the match into a NO DQ FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE match. Bischoff ordered the production truck to turn off Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler’s mics, and told The Coach to announce the match alone.. The Coach kept interfering while calling the match on the house microphone. Stone Cold Steve Austin ran down and stomped and eventually stunned Jonathan Coachman.. Stone Cold ordered the production truck to turn Jim Ross & Jerry Lawler’s microphone back on. Austin was about to leave Shane McMahon to do his business. Shane lifted Bischoff’s limp and and slapped Steve Austin (signifying being physically provolked). Austin obliged by giving Bischoff a big stunner in the ring! Shane won with an elbow off the top rope through the spanish announcers table!!

ELIMINATION CHAMBER FOR THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE Triple H defeated Bill Goldberg and Randy Orton and Kevin Nash and Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho to retain the World Heavyweight title: Bill Goldberg prooved his marketability when he slipped and fell during his sparkly entrance. Triple H wore long wrestling tights, probably to hide whatever brace he has on underneath. Shawn Michaels & Chris Jericho (as expected) started the match. Randy Orton was the next participant to enter the chamber. Kevin Nash entered next and was eliminated two minutes later after a Shawn Michaels superkick! Triple H enters next and got caught with a superkick from Shawn Michaels! Triple H fell back into his chamber, where he stayed for several minutes because of his injury. Kevin Nash got to his feet and powerbombed Shawn Michaels, Randy Orton, and Chris Jericho before leaving.. Goldberg then entered the match last (work less, paid more!) and speared Randy Orton and pinned him for the elimination. Goldberg speared Chris Jericho through the bullet-proof (plastic) glass of one of the Pods. Goldberg then speared Shawn Michaels, who was coming off the top rope! Goldberg eliminated Michaels after a jackhammer!!! Goldberg then eliminated Jericho after yet another jackhammer. HHH was hiding inside one of the Pods, so Goldberg smashed the glass to get him! Ric Flair was running around at ringside and passed a sledgehammer in to Triple H! Triple H blocked the spear and hit Goldberg with the sledgehammer, followed by a pinfall! Ric Flair & Randy Orton entered the Chamber and the Evolution handcuffed Goldberg to the chain walls. Triple H repeatedly whacked Goldberg with a sledgehammer, busting him WIDE OPEN!!!
