~ Smackdown comes on the air with highlights of Steve Austin’s on-going war with Stephanie McMahon on Raw. We specially get clips of Stephanie cheating Austin out of his match and costing him a shot at the #1 contendership. We then get a shot of Austin walking into the parking lot and pacing, perhaps waiting for Stephanie to arrive. Uh-oh!

~ We then go to the intro with Michael Cole and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcoming us to the show. Tonight The Undertaker, Kane and William Regal do battle for a shot at Kurt Angle and the WWF Title on Raw. And the WWF Champion himself is in action as Angle meets The Rock. Must be non-title since it’s on free TV. The annoucners also fear for Stephanie’s safety once she arrives as Austin can’t be in a good mood after Monday. Read more…

~ This New Year’s Night edition of Raw comes on the air with highlights of Stephanie McMahon’s rampage on Smackdown. We then get a shot of Steve Austin arriving at the building (on time for once, even!) when Earl Hebner runs up to him saying that Stephanie wants to speak with him in her office. Austin says it’d better be about his title shot.
