Flashback to Survivor Series with HBK winning the World Heavyweight Championship. The flashback continues into last Monday with RVD defeating Booker T and Chris Jericho for the #1 Contendership for the World Heavyweight Championship. RVD faces HBK tonight on RAW for the Championship.
1st Match: The Dudleys vs. Chris Jericho and Christian for the World Tag Team Titles
The Dudleys back together facing off against the World Tag Team Champions Jericho and Christian. Big "POP" for the Dudleys and the crowd wants the tables. Bubba and Christian start out the match with a lot of fast action. This is not a technical match by no means. Devon gets beat down by the Champs with neck breakers. Devon tags in Bubba. Bubba back drops the Champs. Devon tags back into the match and gets beat down by Jericho. Jericho rolls up Devon for the quick win.
Enter - Eric Bischoff and the Big Valbowski (Sean Morley)
The Big Valbowski (Sean Morley) is named the New Chief of Staff and his first order of business is to restart the tag match because Devon and Jericho had their shoulders on the mat. They restart the match but TNN goes to a commercial break. What happened there? That sucked!
Back to action with Jericho and Bubba in the ring going at it. Buuba and Devon get Christian in a 3-D and pin him for the Championship Gold. Wait, Shawn Morley comes back out. The pin fall does not count because Bubba was the legal man not Devon who covered for the win. They have to restart the match. Bubba and Jericho back in to action. They get Jericho into the head dive off the top rope. Get the tables. No, the referee won't let them do it. Bubba gets hit by a lionsault. Christina uses a tag belt to hit Bubba. Jericho gets Bubba into the walls of Jericho for the tap out.

Flashback to Stacey nailing Richards' with the "wiener slinger" in the Testicles. Richards is trying to power wrestle against Test. Richards slows down by using a chin lock. Not a lot of action going on here. The King says that Stacey's best attributes are her umm puppies, not, her legs. Test over powers Richards' with a front twisting, reverse neck breaker.

4th Match: Trish Stratus vs. Victoria for the Women's Championship
Victoria is beating Trish with hard right hands and elbows to the back. Victoria trips Trish into the bottom rope. That looked like it really hurt. Trish rolls up Victoria for a near fall. Got to love the roll ups. Very quick covers by Victoria. No offense from Trish at all as they are making Victoria into a bigger heel. 3 quick roll ups by Trish result in a shot to her throat by Victoria and she gains control again. Victoria is really punishing Trish. Threw her into the steel ring steps. Trish gets the upper hand with a couple of clotheslines. Now the action picks up with Trish giving Victoria the frankensteiner. Only a two count. Victoria gains the upper hand and gives Trish the Widows Peak. Nasty move.

Back with a short feature on Eric Bischoff
Flask to the back with the Tag Champs looking for their clothes. Christian is worried about "shrinkage." They see the Dudleys on TV with their bags. The Dudleys ask the crowd who wants free clothes. Bubba says that they have more clothes than the Godfather has ho's. The Dudleys are throwing the champs clothes into the crowd. Bubbas gets ass cream out of one of the bags. The Dudleys invite the champs to come get their clothes. Spike walks behind the champs and gets the towels. The champs actually had no clothes on. Funny Bit.
