Raw starts with highlights of Smackdown's main event between the Dudley Boyz vs Rock and Kurt Angle. They show how Test, Booker T and Shane McMahon got involved.
The World Wrestling Federation champion, Kurt Angle comes out. Kurt says he has some unfinished business with the Dudleyz. But first, he has some sad news. Word on the street is that Stone Cold will not be showing up tonight. Or Austin might want it to be a surprise and show up out of nowhere. Kurt says that Austin hasn't been seen on TV since he beat him for the WWF title. Austin, are you embarrassed? Ashamed? Hung over? What? Kurt says that there is no shame in losing against an Olympic Gold medalist. He said there is no shame in tapping out. Kurt says he doesn't want to embarrass him, so if he is back there, he should stop playing games and come out to the ring, right here right now. Austin didn't come out. The Rock's music hits and The Rock comes out.
The Rock says he doesn't know where Austin is tonight and quite frankly, he doesn't care. But what the Rock cares about are the Dudley Boyz. The same Dudleyz that put Kurt through tables, the same Dudleyz that are here tonight. Kurt says "Oh Testify Rock, testify". Rock makes fun of the Dudleyz, but the bottom line is this, tonight Kurt and Rock can whip their candy asses. Shane McMahon comes out.
Shane says that he's so excited that he wants to take on the Dudleyz tonight, and since he owns wCw, he will force the Rock to compete in that very ring, in a special handicap table match against the Dudleyz and he is forcing the Rock to put up the wCw title. If Rock is able to put Devon or Bubba through a table, he wins. But if Bubba or Devon put him through a table, he loses his title. Shane says that if Kurt Angle interferes in the match, he will strip the Rock from the wCw title.
The Rock thinks that Shane, with all the money he has and everything, he is without a doubt the biggest asshole walking god's green earth. Kurt Angle says that he knows what he means when he says "strudle". He says Austin is one giant strudle. As for Shane McMahon, he doesn't think he has a strudle. Shane says not only he has a strudle, he has the whole damn bakery down there. Shane McMahon challenges Kurt Angle for the WWF title tonight. Kurt accepts his challenge and says he'll see if he has a strudle or a twinky.
Shane walks towards the ring. Shane was on the apron, then the Dudleyz sneak up from behind and they attack Rock and Kurt. Devon throws Rock to the outside. Shane and Devon hammer away on Kurt Angle. Devon brings in a table. Bubba powerbombs Kurt Angle through the table. The Rock comes in and tries to fight back, but the Dudleyz Boyz out-numbered him and delivered the 3D on him.
Paul Heyman had a fax machine on the announcing table. It rings and it's a letter from Stone Cold Steve Austin. Heyman reads the letter. Austin is not embarrassed or ashamed because he lost his WWF title.... Nothing important at all. Just explains that he's not scared, embarrassed or ashamed.
