Vader vs Marc MeroEdit
Marc Mero comes out and introduces Sable…who is Goldust dressed in drag as Sable. Sable came out midway and got into an argument with Goldust at ringside. Goldust shoves Sable, who then delivers a kick to Goldust's side. Mero sends Sable to the back as the two exchanged heated words. Vader squashes Mero for the majority of this match, flattening Mero with the Vader Bomb but Goldust takes a pair of coconuts out of his bra and waffles Vader with them for the disqualification.
D-Generation X Taunt Owen HartEdit
Backstage: DX is shown arriving at the arena.
In-Ring Segment: DX makes their way to the ring. HHH mocks Owen about being flushed over and over and he got the big flush an hour ago and he is in the sewer. HHH continues about tips and giving the whole thing. HBK has the mic and states that Tyson is the baddest man and HHH does an imitation of him. Shawn tells Tyson that this is HBK territory and that he needs to stay out of his way at the Rumble. Shawn decides to discuss Kane and Owen turns up on the Tron and tells them he knows about family and HHH responds that he is in the ring waiting for him, so Owen comes out swinging a crutch and a slew of refs come out to hold them back.

Undertaker confronts DXEdit
In-Ring Segment: Here comes DX with a huge announcement. It is about Paul Bearer and Kane splitting ways. DX is willing to accept Kane with open arms and then introduce him.

Shawn needs to be worried about the Rumble and the title and then goozles him and Chyna gets it to and has her up but HHH hits him with a crutch. Undertaker slowly turns to glare at him and Shawn superkicks him in the head and now they assault him. The fans erupt as the lights go out and out comes Kane as the beatdown continues. Kane shoves off HHH and goozles Shawn and HHH hits him and then decides to wisely run off and Kane heads after them with Kane in pursuit.
