November 9th, 1998: Last week, Vince McMahon stripped The Rock of his #1 contendership and removed him from the WWF Title Tournament at this Sunday's "Survivor Series" pay-per-view. This week, the chairman is allowing The Rock to earn his way back into the tourney if he can defeat Mark Henry..... but if he loses, "The People's Champion" is fired from the company! "Stone Cold" Steve Austin calls out The Big Boss Man, who also has his sights set on Shane McMahon. The Undertaker steps into the ring with X-Pac, but the highlight is a post-match encounter with Kane where "The Big Red Machine" shoots a fireball out of his glove! And speaking of Kane, he looks to cause even more fire-related mayhem later in the night when he goes up against Edge. We get the first ever WWF Hardcore Championship match as Mankind proudly defends his title against his bitter rival Ken Shamrock. Steve Blackman goes one-on-one with Val Venis, and "The Big Valbowski" proceeds to tell us the reason why he could not possibly be the father of Terri Runnels' child. "The Road Dogg" Jesse James, D'Lo Brown, and Headbanger Mosh do battle in a surprisingly entertaining triple threat match with the aforementioned Shane McMahon acting as the referee. Goldust takes on Jeff Jarrett while the mischievous Debra McMichael seeks to make her presence felt. Al Snow is scheduled to face Tiger Ali Singh, but the Indian aristocrat volunteers a replacement for himself. Plus, Vince McMahon appears to be grooming Mankind to become his corporate champion, The Blue Blazer continues to interfere in other peoples' affairs, and we get a titillating montage of Sable working out!
Meanwhile in the political arena, a former wrestler/commentator shocks the world and becomes the governor of Minnesota!
