Video package on Kurt Angle airs.
Shawn Stasiak vs. Kurt Angle
They actually show footage of Shawn’s father Stan Stasiak to try to give us the idea he actually stands a chance in this match.

Small package by Angle gets 2 and he hits a powerslam for 2. Stasiak hits the F-5 and he goes up. Crossbody off the top misses and Angle hits the Olympic Slam for 3. Winner- Kurt Angle ** ( Angle looked comfortable in the ring in his debut; he looked like a natural mixing in the typical WWF styles with great looking mat wrestling. The crowd could not have cared less about the match and it looked like Angle’s debut was going to be a disaster so whoever made the call for Angle to cut a promo mid match was a genius and gave him a character to work with going forward. They struck gold with Kurt so this was one of the more important debuts in WWF history. )

Test and the McMahons race to the parking lot to check on Austin and Vince goes after DX as they appear. Triple H says they had nothing to do with it. Vince McMahon says to get him a car as he’s going to the hospital to check on Austin. ( Austin had lingering neck problems so he needed surgery to this is how they wrote him out. The payoff a year later sucked but it led to an epic match between Austin and Triple H in 2001, so there’s that. )
DX professes their innocence to Shane McMahon and Triple H asks if the main event is still a triple threat match. Shane says he doesn’t know what he’s going to do and kicks him out.
Survivor Series Elimination Match- The Hollys (Hardcore and Crash Holly) and Too Cool (Scotty 2 Hotty and Grandmaster Sexay) vs. Edge, Christian, and Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy) w/Terri

Hardcore dumps Crash to the floor and they trade counters until Hardcore blocks a Victory roll for 3. Winner- Hardcore Holly ***1/2 ( They did some awesome stuff during the match, so it was unfortunate to see the crowd not that into it and to hear the commentary team focus on the Austin angle rather than the match. At least three of these teams got super over in the coming months.)
Shane McMahon gives an update on Stone Cold and declares there will still be a Triple Threat match tonight but it will be without Austin.
The 411: This show felt more like an episode of Raw than a PPV. All of the classic Survivor Series elimination matches were thrown together, a majority of the show was taken over by the Stone Cold car angle, and the wrestling wasn't all that good with only two exceptions. If your a Big Show fan and want to see his crowning moment since coming to the WWF early in the year, then this show is worth a look. Otherwise, nothing to see here.
