Bra and Panties Match: Torrie Wilson and Stacy Keibler vs. Trish Stratus and Lita
WWF vs. WCW/ECW: Steve Austin, Undertaker, Kane, Chris Jericho, and Kurt Angle vs. DDP, Booker T, Rhyno, and Dudley Boyz- These kind of matches are not really my thing, though this wasn’t horrible. Steve Austin turns yet again and joins the WCW/ECW faction. Jim Ross has been hyping this as the match that will decide the fate of the WWF. Well, the WWF loses but nothing ever happens. Over-hyped match.

Chris Jericho vs. Rhyno- Very Sloppy match by Jericho as he slips a few times, misses some of his moves, etc. He still wins though, although his punishment should have been a loss.
Hardcore Title, Ladder Match: Rob Van Dam vs. Jeff Hardy- Cool match that could have been a bit better but still worth watching. Jim Ross is constantly saying that these two should ease up on the high-flying moves. SHUT UP JR!

Immunity Battle Royal- Test wins so he can’t be fired for at least a year.
Women’s Title Match- Ivory vs. Lita vs. Jacqueline vs. Molly Holly vs. Trish Stratus vs. Jazz- Jazz, here to debut today, but gone tomorrow. Trish wins the vacant women’s championship.
Winner Take All, WWF vs. Alliance: Big Show, Kane, Undertaker, Chris Jericho, and The Rock vs. Shane, Booker T, Rob Van Dam, Kurt Angle, and Steve Austin- This is the order that they came to the ring and the order that they were eliminated. Predictable with Austin and Rock the last two. Jericho attacks The Rock to turn heel as The Rock picks up the win for the WWF. No more Alliance.
