June 15th, 1998: "Stone Cold" Steve Austin accuses Vince McMahon of masterminding the attack on him last week, but The Boss instead points the finger at an unlikely culprit. Paul Bearer then challenges Austin and The Undertaker to face Kane and Mankind tonight.......... inside Hell in a Cell! We get the first ever Tag Team Royal Rumble, with the winning team becoming the #1 contenders for The New Age Outlaws' WWF Tag Team Titles. In a King of the Ring qualifying match, The Rock goes one-on-one with the criminally misused Vader. In the second KOTR qualifier, we get a very interesting match-up as DX members Triple-H and X-Pac are forced to go head-to-head! A newly religious Dustin Runnels faces Marc Mero, who gets quite a big surprise when Mr. McMahon reinstates the previously fired Sable. Owen Hart & Mark Henry team up to do battle with former UFC competitors / awesome bad-asses Ken Shamrock & Dan "The Beast" Severn. Val Venis takes on Chainz in what turns out to be the final WWF match for the leader of The Disciples of Apocalypse. "Double-J" Jeff Jarrett squares off with Darren Drozdov (perhaps he should be called "Double-D"?). Avatar makes his return to the WWF to confront Jerry "The King" Lawler over the fact that Al Snow still has not gotten the meeting which was promised to him.
Plus, we get our final Edge vignette before his debut next week, and an underwhelming tag team makes its final appearance on "Raw."
Meanwhile over on "Nitro," The Big Show smokes a cigarette during his match!
