Stasiak trusts Austin, too. Austin sees Billy Kidman against the ropes, smiling. Does Kidman thinks he’s cool? More importantly, does he trust Austin? Kidman trusts Austin. Austin spots Tazz, and tells the “Beady-Eyed Wonder” to come into the ring. Tazz comes in and cuts Austin off. Austin then cuts off Tazz, but ends up letting him talk. Tazz says no one else has the guts to tell him this. Austin isn’t going to like this, either. “Tazz” chants start up. Speaking for the Alliance, Tazz says that they don’t like him. They’re sick of him treating them like trailer park trash. That’s right, folks, not just that regular trash, but trailer park trash. The extra dirty kind. Doesn’t he live by DTA? Well, Tazz thinks it stands for Don’t Trust Austin. Austin laughs. Stunner to Tazz! Austin beats the hell out of Tazz, as the Alliance leaves the ring. Austin tells them to wait, but the leave anyway.

Back in Rock’s lockerroom, Vince comes in to check on him. He hoped Rock and Jericho would put their differences aside after Monday night. He’s concerned about Rock’s elbow. He knows it’s not right that Rock has to defend his title. Rock says Vince’s concern is about as fake as Steph’s breasts. Vince asks if Rock can put his differences with Jericho aside for Survivor Series. Rock says Vince shouldn’t worry about it. He should worry about Jericho surviving. Period. Oooooh.
-RVD stretches, as the Booker Man comes in. Booker says he told Austin that RVD is the mole. Rob appreciates the honesty. He’ll return the favor one day when he has something bad to say about Booker. Booker implys that RVD is jealous of him. Rob wishes him good luck. Booker tells RVD to stay out of his way, sucka. But his name isn’t sucka, it’s Rob Van Dam.

Taker’s going to do what he does best, kick Austin and Angle’s asses, that’s what he’s going to do. VInce says that that’s a little out there. Taker agrees and says that maybe Austin and Angle need a few more partners. Taker says Vince can be his partner. Taker says that’s money. Vince is honored, but he didn’t bring his gear. Vince lets Undertaker be in the Handicap match. Taker is pissed that Vince is giving Austin an opportunity to come back to the WWF. Vince says it’s business, and he’s doing it for “us”.

Now, Christian is going to show New Jersey a championship jersey, as he puts on an Arizona Diamondbacks jersey. You can tell I’m not very sports oriented- I don’t even know what sport the Diamondbacks play (preparing for Diamondback fan hate mail).

Match of the Night: The matches weren’t nearly as good as last week, but I guess I’ll go with the Tajiri vs. Christian match. It could have been a lot better, but it wasn’t bad.
Quotation of the Night: Nothing really stuck out. The interrogation scene with Austin and RVD was pretty funny, though.
Man of the Night: The Undertaker. Whoopin ass and takin names. He deserves some credit for pretty good performances recently.
Sign of the Night: Christian Reeks of Reekyness!
Well, that wraps up another report. A little sidenote: To all the people who want to e-mail me a flaming homosexual who should never write for Rajah ever again, please leave me an e-mail address that I can actually REPLY to so I can tell you personally how stupid you are. Thanks. Also, I had a little goof last week. Edge wasn’t the winner in the Hardcore match, RVD was. Sorry about the typo, but I try to get these reports in as quickly as possible, and sometimes I overlook a few things. Whoops! Until next time, my loyal fans…and the people who wish syphilltic, grisly death upon me, too…the Captain thinks so!
