Mankind's nonsensical promo before the match is so great. Really fun match with a hot crowd to hype Breakdown when these three have a cage match. I'm not sure why Cornette and Shane are the ones doing commentary. Undertaker and Kane show up at ringside near the end and start taking the guys out one by one. Finally, Rock is left alone with Undertaker and Kane and tries to fight both before getting beaten down. Vince is happily watching on and Austin takes the opportunity to attack Vince from behind while Undertaker and Kane are distracted.

Cornette and Shane doing commentary for this is odd as I thought it was Heat. ANyway, this match was disappointing to me and hindered by the 3 way tropes. The BOD show up and again take it to all three men but especially The Rock. Vince is giddy at this but Austin is able to sneak up from behind and steal in a few shots before the BOD make chase. Pretty tame go home angle. (**)

Ross and Lawler were filming their parts for Man on the Moon. Cornette is doing yeoman's work trying to carry Shane all the way through this broadcast, and he mostly succeeds in getting the storylines over while Shane just cheerleads obnoxiously. This has a lot of 3-way cliches like the triple sleeper and one guy lying comatose on the floor, but the action down the stretch heats up, with Shamrock and Rock working really well together--as you'd think considering how often they've wrestled each other all year. No finish and presumably no #1 contender for next week--not that it will end up mattering anyway.
