The glass breaks and here comes the WWF champion and the one half of the tag team champions, Stone Cold Steve Austin. After Austin came, HHH’s song hits and he comes out with Stephanie. Stephanie grabs the microphone and asks for the audience’s undivided attention. HHH grabs the microphone and said that Kane is not the smartest member of his family. He said it was all simple, all he had to do was to stay away. He said that Kane should of been nursing his broken arm, but he is not smart. A$$hole chants broke. HHH told the fans to shut up before he beats them up. Then HHH tells Kane that he will give him a shot at the Intercontinental title at Judgment Day, and since Kane and Undertaker like to use chains so much, he said to make it a chain match. HHH calls out Kane to accept his challenge. Austin grabs the microphone and says that the SOB won’t come out because they kicked his ass. Austin tells HHH that he knows that Kane will get his ass kicked at Judgment Day. Austin said every time he walks into an airport everyone tells him that undertaker will beat him for the belt. Austin said that it won’t happen, he said he will take care of Undertaker. Austin said that he does not use chairs, chains, and he doesn’t jump people from behind like Undertaker. Austin says that Undertaker cannot make them famous, because they already are. He said what they can do is come out and make them EX-Tag Team champions. Undertaker’s music hits and he comes out on the entrance ramp with a chain around his neck. Undertaker says that he heard Austin called him a coward, he said he isn’t a coward, he said what he is saying is that Austin is full of crap and his eyes are starting to turn around. Undertaker tells Austin that on Sunday morning, he better goes to church and give his soul to the lord because his ass belongs to him. Undertaker talks to HHH and tells him that Kane accepts his challenge and as far as the tag team titles goes, he said they will fight tonight. Kane comes out from the crowd and attacks HHH and beats him with a chain and Undertaker runs in the ring and beats Austin and they clear the ring. So there you have it, tonight Steve Austin and Kane against HHH and Austin for the tag team titles.
