The match of Barry Windham and Curt Hennig against Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko was the final of a double-elimination tournament. Entering the match, Benoit and Malenko had already lost once while Windham and Hennig were undefeated. Malenko forced Windham to submit with The Texas Cloverleaf for the first fall. Windham pinned Malenko for the second fall and the Tag Team Championships after choking Malenko out with his belt.

Kevin Nash pinned Rey Misterio, Jr. after an Outsider's Edge from Scott Hall. As a result of the match, Misterio was forced to unmask; had Konnan and Misterio won, Miss Elizabeth would have been shaved bald. This match was originally supposed to involve Lex Luger as Kevin Nash's tag team partner against Misterio and Konnan, but Luger suffered a bicep injury at the hands of Misterio three days earlier on Thunder and was immediately replaced by Scott Hall.

Hollywood Hogan pinned Ric Flair after David Flair turned heel and used a Stun Gun on his own father, joining the nWo Elite in the process.
