During the opening match, Booker T pinned Eddie Guerrero when he knocked Guerrero off the top rope followed by a missile dropkick. After the match, Eddie accused his nephew Chavo Guerrero Jr. of being on Booker T's side. Eddie then attacked Chavo from behind, while he was walking up the aisle.

Chris Jericho then retained the WCW Cruiserweight Championship against Dean Malenko, by submission with the Liontamer. Following the match Gene Okerlund came out to interview Malenko. Okerlund reminded Malenko that he lost his matches during four consecutive PPVs, and asked where Malenko would go from here, to which Malenko responded "home."
