WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH
Triple H defeated Scott Steiner to retain the World Heavyweight title: Another horrible match (what a shocker) with crowd hating Scott Steiner and referee Earl Hebner.

The Rock defeated Hulk Hogan: Hulk Hogan hit the leg drop and had the match won but the lights suddenly went out. When the lights came back, referee Sylvain Grenier (a developmental wrestler) appeared to be knocked out. Vince McMahon came down to ringside and hollared at Hulk Hogan.

The Rock left with the referee while Vince McMahon beat on the Hulkster repeatedly..
