June 1st, 1998: It's the night after "Over the Edge," and things continue to get even crazier in the WWF! For the first time ever, The Undertaker breaks his "Dead Man" character and cuts a worked shoot promo demanding that Vince McMahon give him a shot at the WWF Title. The boss somewhat gives him what he wants as he then schedules a match on "Raw" for the #1 contendership: The Undertaker vs. Kane! D-Generation-X battles The Nation of Domination in a six-man tag team elimination match, but a returning superstar ends up angering both sides. Dude Love was not able to win his title match at "Over the Edge," and this failure may end up costing Mick Foley his job. In our first King of the Ring Qualifying Match of the night, Steve Blackman takes on "Marvelous" Marc Mero, who introduces us to his brand new valet. In our second qualifier, Faarooq goes head-to-head with Jeff Jarrett, who now has a repackaged tag team watching his back. And in our third qualifier, Terry Funk almost kills himself attempting to defeat Mark Henry. L.O.D. 2000 & Droz take on The Disciples of Apocalypse in a Chicago Street Fight, a.k.a. sloppily brawling in an alleyway with a bunch of weapons. Val Venis cuts his first ever in-ring promo (spoiler: it's not very good) and then he goes one-on-one with Papi Chulo. Taka Michinoku defends his Light Heavyweight Championship against the still-employed-by-WWE-in-2016 Funaki. Plus, Vader provides us with the greatest soundbite of his entire career!
Meanwhile over on "Nitro," Sting finally tells the world whose side he is on.... but did he make the right choice?
