    • Mr. McMahon said he was ok with that as long as the two worked together after their match as key members of the Federation's team at Survivor Series.
    • The chairman said he had an announcement to make that night that would make Federation history.
    • Kurt Angle's defection to the Alliance last week wounded the Alliance, admitted Mr. McMahon.

    • He felt he needed to let the cat out of the bag right there during RAW.
    • Vince announced that the man who would switch sides would be Stone Cold Steve Austin!
    • Before Mr. McMahon could explain the reasons for his assertion, the sound of broken glass signified the Texas Rattlesnake's journey to the ring.
    • The Federation Champion grabbed the microphone and stood less than a foot from Mr. McMahon's face.
    • You sure got a big mouth don't you son? Stone Cold growled. Who in the hell do you think you are?
    • Stone Cold refuted Mr. McMahon's claim.
    • Stone Cold said the bottom line was that Stone Cold Steve Austin has got to be Stone Cold Steve Austin.
    • With that, the Federation Chairman fell victim to a Stone Cold Stunner!
