December 28th, 1998: Because Shawn Michaels refused to help out Shane McMahon last week, Vince McMahon vows to fire him live on "Raw" tonight only five short weeks into HBK's tenure as commissioner! "The Road Dogg" Jesse James is initially booked to defend his Hardcore Title against Val Venis, but Vince replaces Val with Mankind in an attempt to drive a wedge between DX and Foley. Two months after vacating the Intercontinental Title, Triple-H gets a chance to regain the belt when he takes on reigning champion Ken Shamrock. In another DX vs. Corporation match, X-Pac puts his European Title on the line against The Big Boss Man. And in a third match between the two stables, DX member Billy Gunn goes one-on-one with the newest member of The Corporation: Kane. The newly-named Pretty Mean Sisters seek to continue their torment of Mark Henry, but "The World's Strongest Man" receives some unexpected back-up from his "girlfriend" Chyna. Sable is scheduled to defend her WWF Women's Championship against..... The Spider Lady? Owen Hart & Jeff Jarrett team up to face the unlikely team of Steve Blackman & Goldust. Edge steps into the ring with a still-covered-in-blood Al Snow, who apparently hasn't bathed since he received a bloodbath 13 days ago. Plus, Shane helps Vince train for the Royal Rumble match in an amusing montage, Dan "The Beast" Severn makes a surprise return, and an unsuspecting Dennis Knight comes to the arena because "He" told him to be there.
Meanwhile over in WCW, Kevin Nash ends Goldberg's winning streak at "Starrcade 1998" and Ric Flair challenges Eric Bischoff on "Nitro" for control of the company!
