July 27th, 1998: It's the night after "Fully Loaded," which means we are now officially counting down the days until an epic "Summerslam!" New Tag Team Champions "Stone Cold" Steve Austin & The Undertaker must defend their titles against The New Age Outlaws just 24 hours after winning them. In an awesomely evil promo, Vince McMahon reminds Sable that she only has a job in the WWF thanks to him being her "knight in shining armor." The Rock puts his Intercontinental Title on the line in a Triple Threat Match against DX members Triple-H and X-Pac. Val Venis faces "Too Sexy" Brian Christopher, but the bigger highlight is a post-match promo from Yamaguchi-San that provides us with one of the greatest soundbites in wrestling history. L.O.D. 2000 take on Mark Henry & The Godfather, and this match is surprisingly noteworthy for two reasons: Hawk appears to be intoxicated and The Godfather now has some lovely ladies accompanying him to the ring. In a Brawl For All fight for the ages, Bart Gunn squares off with "Dr. Death" Steve Williams, which results in one of their careers being completely destroyed. Owen Hart issues an open challenge to anyone in the locker room, but he receives quite the shock when his arch-nemesis Jason Sensation shows up. Proud European Champion D'Lo Brown goes head-to-head with Vader in a non-title match. The Disciples of Apocalypse face the undefeated team of Faarooq & Scorpio because sometimes you just need to kill a few minutes of TV time. German bodybuilder Brakus quickly beats up a jobber, and then he is thankfully never seen again.
Plus, JBL makes his commentary debut, we go inside "Droz's World," and the WWF teases a match between former UFC competitors Ken Shamrock and Dan Severn!
Meanwhile over on "Nitro," Goldberg cuts his first ever in-ring promo, Eric Bischoff continues to be a terrible late night host, and WCW re-shows the entire 24-minute "Bash at the Beach" main event on free TV!
