Bischoff falls to Austin, but The Rock gets the final word

In an attempt to tip the scales in his favor, Eric Bischoff arranged to have Chief Morley accompany him to the ring for a no-disqualification match against Stone Cold Steve Austin on RAW. But unfortunately for Bischoff, Morley couldn't keep the Texas Rattlesnake at bay and neither could The Rock.

The People's Champion came out of nowhere to nail Stone Cold with a Stunner that looked to have secured a win for the RAW GM. But somehow, Stone Cold kicked out and delivered a round of Stunners to Morley and Bischoff before getting the pinfall! The Rock, clearly agitated but more smug than ever, attacked Stone Cold with a Rock Bottom before delivering a final insult by toasting a few beers to his WrestleMania opponent.

Booker T didn't have to wait until WrestleMania to get his hands on Triple H, but the ever-cautious World Heavyweight Champion was ready with an ace in the hole. With Booker T on the prowl at ringside, The Game was in jeopardy of falling victim to an upset by Goldust. Suddenly, a hooded figure nailed Booker with a crutch! The hooded figure, it turns out, was none other than Triple H's Evolution ally, Randy Orton! Triple H pulled out a convincing win over Goldust, giving Booker T even more incentive to take down The Game at WrestleManai XIX

Speaking of WrestleMania, which comes to Seattle's SAFECO Field and will be live on pay-per-view on March 30, another match for the biggest sports-entertainment spectacle of the year was announced on RAW. The Women's Championship will be on the line with Victoria defending the title against Jazz and Trish Stratus in a Triple Threat Match!
