1 Lex Luger was originally supposed to be The Giant's partner, but Eric Bischoff wouldn't let him wrestle due to a broken wrist. The Giant agreed to wrestle both Outsiders by himself, and would give one of the tag belts to Luger if he won. During the match, Luger came down to the ring and put Nash in the torture rack to gain a submission. In order to make sure that the win was legit, the Giant chokeslammed Hall and pinned him. Even with the legit win, Bischoff still stripped Luger and The Giant of the tag titles the following night on Nitro.

    Giant, Hall, and Benoit first. Basically, Benoit and Hall took turns fighting the Giant for the first five minutes. Except for the first five seconds, Benoit and Hall didn't fight each other at all. Surprisingly enough, Hall broke up the Giant pinning Benoit after a choke slam. Toward the end of the first five minutes, the Giant charged Hall in the corner. Hall ducked and the Giant went over the top onto the floor and was the first man to be eliminated. That was a shocker! Jarrett, Savage, and Luger came out next. Before anyone else was eliminated, Mongo, Nash, and Steiner came out next. Kevin Nash clotheslined Jeff Jarrett over the top rope to eliminate Jarrett. Scott Hall reversed a piledriver to back body drop Mongo over the top rope to eliminate him. Piper came in. Scott Steiner was tossed over the top rope to be eliminated. Hall did it. Hogan and Rodman came out with Rodman carrying the heavyweight belt. Hogan took his time coming out and stayed outside the ring and didn't get involved. Note, no fourth man for WCW ever came out. Crowd started chanting "We want Sting!" Piper pulled a chain out of his tights to choke Hogan Hogan eliminated Piper over the top rope when Rodman pulled the top rope down such that Piper went over it. Hall and Nash tossed Benoit over the top to eliminate him after the Outsider's edge. Piper's team is eliminated! That means WCW or nWo must win. At this point, it's Luger against the entire nWo team. Luger mounted a comeback. Luger racked Savage and made him against the entire nWo team. Luger mounted a comeback. Luger racked Savage and made him submit. Luger then threw Nash over the top rope on the floor to eliminate Nash. Luger racked Hall and made him submit. With Nash distracting the referee, Rodman handed Savage the can of spray paint. While Luger had Hogan in the rack, Savage ran back in the ring and sprayed paint in Luger's eyes. Hogan fell on top of Luger for the pinfall. The nWo wins!
