August 24th, 1998: It's the go-home episode of "Raw" before "Summerslam," and some major developments are occurring on The Highway To Hell. After months of speculation as to whether or not The Undertaker and Kane are in cahoots, we finally get our answer: The Brothers of Destruction have united for the first time! The Undertaker confronts WWF Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin six days before their title match, but Vince McMahon interjects and asks The Dead Man an important question: is he a friend to the chairman or a foe? Meanwhile, Kane's tag team partner Mankind wants to resolve their differences tonight...... inside Hell in a Cell! In a rather uncomfortable promo, The Rock confronts Chyna and basically threatens her with sexual assault (the star of "Baywatch" likely won't want to re-watch this segment anytime soon). The WWF finally pulls the trigger on a Ken Shamrock / Dan Severn match, but it disappointingly goes for less than three minutes. The Brawl For All comes to a long overdue conclusion with the championship bout: Bart Gunn vs. Bradshaw (and let's just say that I hope someone will send footage of this fight to Mauro Ranallo). Val Venis goes head-to-head with Taka Michinoku in what proves to be the final encounter in this epic(?) feud. The New Age Outlaws square off with Southern Justice, although the match is almost completely ignored due to Jeff Jarrett's antics outside the ring. X-Pac battles Gangrel as Edge continues to take an interest in the WWF's creepy new superstar. Kurrgan goes one-on-one with Marc Mero, who requests that the rest of The Oddities be banned from ringside. Plus, we get an appearance from Shawn Michaels, a wrestler gets his boots filled with piss, and Hawk provides us with some drunk kayfabe-killing commentary!
