September 5th, 1998 "Saturday Night Raw":
Vince McMahon comes up with an evil scheme to get the WWF Title taken off his arch-nemesis, and that plan apparently includes making The Undertaker and Kane incredibly angry throughout the entire night.
The New Age Outlaws defend their newly-won Tag Team Titles against The Rock & Mark Henry, but Chyna seeks to make The Nation pay for their actions last week on "Raw."
D'Lo Brown puts his European Title on the line against X-Pac in a precursor to what will become a pretty solid feud throughout the fall of 1998.
In a match which somehow main events this show, the new-look Jeff Jarrett goes head-to-head with Scorpio.
Val Venis squares off with Vader because you can never have too many V's.
The Oddities go up against L.O.D. 2000 and Droz, but Hawk's personal demons continue to plague him.
Ken Shamrock & Steve Blackman have apparently patched up their differences, so they unite to face The Disciples of Apocalypse.
Edge takes on Marc Mero while the commentators continue to speculate about Edge's past with Gangrel.
Southern Justice do battle with The Headbangers because these are apparently two of the strongest tag teams on the roster at the moment.
Too Much and Los Boricuas have a match, but the most noteworthy aspect of it is the fact that Jesus Castillo is wearing atrocious dad jeans.
Tiger Ali Singh continues his humiliation of greedy Americans by having a sardine-chomping Babu make out with a young woman from the crowd.
Plus, Al Snow gets a sitdown interview with Jim Ross despite the fact that he and Head are supposed to be gone from the company.
