Raw starts with highlights of last week’s WWF Tag Team title match from Smackdown.
Then they show highlights of when Vince was telling Rock and Chris Jericho to shake hands (from the Rebellion PPV).
Vince McMahon comes out. Right here in this very ring tonight, Y2J Chris Jericho goes one on one with the Rock for the wCw title. Vince is expecting them to beat the hell out of each other. He hopes that after the match, they would have settled their differences. He is here tonight to make a major announcement. An announcement that will make WWF history. He said last week, Shane had an announcement last week saying a wrestler will defect and join the Alliance, and it was Kurt Angle. Angle’s turn wounded the WWF. Nonetheless, his announcement tonight, is not to wound the Alliance, but to be the death nail for the Alliance. He said someone from the Alliance is joining the WWF tonight! It’s not only someone from the Alliance, it’s someone from team Alliance. That individual will join the WWF at the Survivor Series and will make WWF history. Vince said perhaps he should let us know who it is. He said I’m Vince McMahon, I can say anything I want, do anything I want! That individual is Stone Cold Steve Austin! He said maybe he shouldn’t of said it but he did.
Austin’s music hits and he comes out to the ring. Austin tells Vince to shut up. He tells Vince that he has a big mouth. Who the hell do you think you are? “I’m Vince McMahon”, Austin tells him to shut up, what! He says Vince talks trash. Stone Cold Steve Austin has got to be Stone Cold Steve Austin and he delivers the stunner on Vince. After the stunner, Vince was trying to get up and he was smiling.
During the commercial break, Austin went backstage and the Alliance were all lined up and giving him a dirty look. Austin tells them that Vince is lying and he tells them to knock that look off their faces, their pathetic.
Ivory vs Lita
Ivory attacks Lita and puts her in the corner and delivers a couple of hits. Then Ivory takes her down and delivers a leg drop, 1,2 but Lita kicked out. Lita tried to fight back, but Ivory hits her and delivers a bulldog, 1,2 but Lita kicked out. Ivory hits Lita across the face. Slapjack take down by Ivory, 1,2 and again Lita kicked out. Ivory drags Lita’s face on the rope. Lita takes down Ivory by the hair and both women are down. Lita fights back with a couple of right hands. Clothesline by Lita. Head scissors take down by Lita, followed by a Russian leg sweep, 1,2 but Ivory kicked out. Clothesline by Lita. Lance Storm comes out and grabs Lita, but Matt comes out and pulls him off the apron. Lita turned around and Ivory hit her and delivered face buster for the win (modified X-Factor).
Austin was telling Debra that the Alliance think he’s going to join the WWF. Shane comes in, Austin told him that the Alliance looked at him like a piece of trash, they looked at him like Shane was looking at him. Shane tells Austin that he trusts him and Shane says, his dad is a liar. But there is a little truth to what Vince said. Someone is most likely joining the WWF at Survivor Series, but it might not be Austin. Kurt Angle comes in, and Austin gives him a dirty look, Angle tells him not to worry, he doesn’t believe Vince. He asks Austin if he has his back tonight against the Undertaker, Austin replies back by saying, I gave you your Gold medals, but where is the hat? Angle tells him he was changing and left it in the dressing room, Austin was upset that Angle wasn’t wearing his hat. He tells him he’s got his back.
