Place: Memphis, Tennessee

(Blue Meanie) with the Curtain Call.
At one point, Goldust had Bluedust in the corner for the Shattered Dreams Kick, but Bluedust had one leg down.

Bob Holly defeated Al Snow
via Pin fall, to become the new Hardcore Champion.
As previously announced on Sunday Night Heat, Al Snow was the new Hardcore Champion, since Jesse James suffered a major injury caused by an attack the previous night on Raw Saturday Night. Snow and Bob Holly, who were JOB Squad members, were scheduled to go one-on-one in a Hardcore Title match after getting into a brawl on Raw Saturday Night. Both men took it to the backstage and outside area, where they used several objects to their advantage. The majority of the match took place on the outside, in 30° weather. They took it to the banks of the Mississippi River, which was near The Pyramid. They both tossed each other into the freezing river, and continued to brawl. They took it to a chain-linked fence, where Holly wrapped it around Snow, to make the pin. Holly came back into the arena to obtain his Hardcore belt. The crowd gave him a huge ovation.
Pre-recorded footage was shown of The Ministry of Darkness talking on WWF.COM's audio broadcast. The Undertaker said we would see a massacre later in the PPV, as Mideon took on The Big Bossman.
The Big Bossman defeated Mideon
with the Sidewalk Slam.
Mideon handed his jar of water and an eyeball to Jerry Lawler. In a matter of time, The Big Bossman won the match with the Sidewalk Slam. Following the match, the rest of The Ministry of Darkness made their ways down to surround and attack Bossman. The Undertaker made his way down. Bossman was hauled out by The Acolytes.
Backstage, Kevin Kelly interviewed D-Lo Brown. Kelly asked if Ivory was the person to take care of Debra McMichael and make them become the Tag Team Champions. D-Lo said Ivory was the perfect woman for them, and they would become the champions. D-Lo said if Debra interfered at all in his and Mark Henry's Tag Team Title match with Owen Hart and Jeff Jarrett, Ivory would tear her clothes off.
Owen Hart and Jeff Jarrett
(w/Debra) defeated D-Lo Brown and Mark Henry with Jarrett's Figure-Four
Leglock, to retain the Tag Team Titles.
Owen Hart and Jeff Jarrett showed tremendous teamwork to wear down D-Lo Brown. As D-Lo gained the advantage, he went for the Lo-Down, but was interrupted by Debra. As the referee was distracted, Owen Hart slammed a guitar across the knee of Mark Henry (this will explain why he will be out for a while), which let Jeff Jarrett strap Henry in the Figure-Four Leglock, to let him and Hart retain the Tag Team Titles. Following the match, Ivory and Debra got in yet another cat fight, but were pulled apart by both tag teams.
Backstage, Kevin Kelly asked Mankind if his knee injury suffered from the hands of The Rock on Sunday Night Heat would affect his Last Man Standing Heavyweight Title match. Mankind said it would take a lot more than a knee injury to stop him from fighting The Rock.
Val Venis (w/Ryan Shamrock)
defeated Ken Shamrock via Pinfall, to become the new Intercontinental Champion.
Billy Gunn was the special Guest Referee. Val Venis did his sexual joke in the beginning, saying, "The Big Valbowski has a heart on for you." Ken Shamrock dominated in the beginning, and later hit Venis with a DDT. Shamrock had the pin, but Gunn wouldn't make the three-count. Shamrock got up and said, "What the f*ck?" Venis went for the Money Shot, but Shamrock super plexed him off the top rope. Shamrock hit a belly-to-belly suplex, and strapped Venis in the Ankle Lock. Venis made it to the ropes with help from Ryan Shamrock. Ryan slapped her older brother, after he got onto her for helping Venis. Shamrock then entered the ring, and Venis finished him off, to become the new Intercontinental Champion, thanks to Gunn's fast three-count. As Venis and Ryan made their ways back with the gold, Gunn beat down Shamrock in the ring.
Kane and Chyna defeated Triple
H and X-Pac with Kane's Choke slam.
Triple H did his usual "Are You Ready?" introduction in the beginning, and said " ... And, Chyna, come out here and get your butt kicked you big jacked up b**ch." During the match, Shane McMahon took it upon himself to make his way down and do color commentary. X-Pac took it to Chyna, and went for the Bronco Buster, but missed. At one point, X-Pac and Kane were on the outside of the ring, and X-Pac clocked McMahon. Kane and Chyna wore down X-Pac in the ring, until Triple H was finally tagged in. The referee was knocked out. After riding Chyna with a Bronco Buster, McMahon spoiled the fun by clothes lining X-Pac. X-Pac left the ring to chase after McMahon. Meanwhile, Triple H was left alone in the ring with the heels. Triple H was set to hit Chyna with the Pedigree, but Kane stopped the maneuver. Kane slammed Triple H to the canvas with a Choke slam, and then placed Chyna on top of Triple H for the pin fall.
Last Man Standing Heavyweight
Title Match: Mankind and The Rock went to a Draw.
Howard Finkel announced the rules of the match were, of course no holds barred, and you lost if you could not make it to your feet by a 10 count. Michael Cole mentioned that he had a conversation with Jim Ross backstage about the match between The Rock and Mankind. The Rock and Mankind took it to the outside of the ring almost immediately. The Rock was DDT through a table, but got back up in time. Mankind brought The Rock back down to the ring, and threw him into the steel stairs. Mankind went for a Mr. [Corporate] Elbow, but The Rock got out of the way, to gain the advantage. The Rock did his commentary skit, as he took Mankind to the outside of the ring. Mankind elbowed The Rock off from the apron to the announcer's table. The Rock made it to his feet on time, but as a result of the maneuver, Mankind started limping. Mankind was about to slam the steel stairs into The Rock inside of the ring, but The Rock countered by kicking the stairs into Mankind's face. The Rock worked on Mankind's injured knee with a chair. At one point, the chair flew out of the ring, and landed right on The Rock's head, knocking him out, but later getting up. The Rock threw Mankind off the apron, where Mankind's head hit the announcer's table, while his knee banged into the ringbell. The Rock then threw the steel stairs right onto Mankind. The Rock placed Mankind back in the ring, and executed the Corporate Elbow. The referee begun the 10 count, with The Rock demanding that he count faster on the microphone. The Rock started to sing on the mic, but Mankind caught The Rock with the Mandible Claw. The Rock got back up to his feet, and was DDT'd into a steel stair. The Rock used the referee to get to his feet at the last minute. Mankind pulled Mr. Socko out and shoved it down the throat of The Rock. The Rock countered the move with the Rock Bottom. Mankind got back up, and both he and The Rock simultaneously hit each other with chairs. Both did not get up, resulting in a draw. The crowd chanted, "Bullshit." Mankind and The Rock received medical attention, and were hauled into ambulances.
Steel Cage Match: Stone Cold
Steve Austin defeated Vince McMahon.
The winner of the match would receive a Heavyweight Title shot at WrestleMania XV and there were no Team Corporate members allowed at ringside, or Vince McMahon would fire them. Stone Cold Steve Austin destroyed McMahon in the beginning, staying outside of the ring. The two brawled around, and weren't even inside of the steel cage. Vince McMahon climbed up the cage, with Austin following. Austin threw McMahon off the cage, who landed on the Spanish announcer's table. Medical attention arrived for McMahon. He was put in a neck brace, and placed on a stretcher. Shane McMahon came out to check on his father's well-being. Austin smiled all the way. The medics asked if McMahon knew where he was. Howard Finkel was in the process of announcing Austin as the winner, but Austin said it was bullshit, and he made guarantees of what he would do (bloodshed, go onto WrestleMania by beating McMahon's butt). Austin asked if McMahon was still breathing, and he was. Austin wheeled the gurney McMahon was on into the cage. Austin hit McMahon with the stretcher several times. Austin tossed McMahon back in the cage, and the bell rang, to indicate the match continued. Austin removed McMahon's neck brace. As Austin was stepping outside of the cage to take the win, McMahon flipped him off, which caused Austin to re-enter. McMahon attempted to climb out of the cage, but Austin was able to get him off by slamming McMahon into the cage, which caused him to bleed. Austin was about to step out of the cage, but decided to come back in. At that point, Michael Cole noted the mistake Austin made in the Royal Rumble. After Austin hit the Stunner on a bloody McMahon, and was about to make his way out of the ring, Paul Wight (The Giant) came in and attacked Austin. McMahon attempted to make his way out, but the cage gave way. Austin then managed to make his way out of the cage for the win. Austin would go to WrestleMania XV on 3/28 to take on the WWF Heavyweight Champion.
* Chants of "Jerry" were heard throughout the show for the possible future Mayor of Memphis, Tennessee.

WWF Royal Rumble - January 25, 1999
Big Bossman d. Jesse James with the Bossman Slam. This was a regular match and not for the Hardcore title, so James retains that belt.
Ken Shamrock d. Billy Gunn by forcing Gunn to tap out from the anklelock. Shamrock retains the WWF Intercontinental title.
X-Pac d. Gangrel with the X Factor to retain the WWF European title.
Sable d. Luna in a strap match to retain the WWF Women's title. Both women had touched three turnbuckles (touching all four was the object of the match). Terri Power interfered to help Sable touch the fourth.
The Rock d. Mankind in an "I quit" match to win the WWF World title. Mankind took a fall from a platform onto a large piece of electrical equipment, causing it to spark. Rock had Mankind apparently out cold and someone played a tape of Mick Foley saying "I quit" from an earlier interview when he said, "I will never say 'I quit'".
Vince McMahon (really) won the Royal Rumble to gain a World title shot at Wrestlemania XV. Order of entry and elimination (note: This list below may not be perfect, and in some cases people were eliminated at the same time, but this should be very close):

-- Entry was each 90 seconds, after we had heard 60 on the WWF's "Byte This" internet show and 120 during Heat.
-- After Austin eliminated Golga, McMahon left the ring and went into the crowd. Austin chased him and beat on him until he got ambushed by Corporation members. He was taken from the building in an ambulance, which he would later commandeer a drive back to the arena. McMahon returned and did commentary for the match until he and Austin were the last two in the Rumble.
-- Mabel appeared at Heat as a surprise opponent in Mankind's "warmup" match ordered by McMahon. He was eliminated by Undertaker's Ministry and thrown into a hearse by his followers.
-- Kane cleared the ring, but eliminated himself to go after people from the "mental institution" trying to capture him.
-- Mark Henry was eliminated easily by Chyna seconds after she entered the ring. Chyna was then clotheslined out by Austin.
-- Austin was pushed out by McMahon
after The Rock distracted him long enough for McMahon to recover from Austin's
