Stone Cold comes out with Paul E, Steph, & Shane…along with new theme music. JR and Cole run down SCSA while they get in the ring. You know, Stephanie sounds like Nurse Joy (Thats for you Williams). She isn’t surprised that we are angry, but they shoved it down our throats. They said that WCW/ECW would with the 10 man match, and they did. They said that the WWF would die, and they are, now that they have the WWF Champion in their corner. Paul E on the mic. He hates to say it, but they told you so. The number one brand of sports entertainment is now the ECW/WCW Alliance. Shane on the stick. He says the WCW/ECW will be a much better brand then the WWF. A brand that will set a higher standards in sports entertainment. He then want introduce the WWF Champion, Stone Cold Steve Austin. SCSA on the mic. Asshole chant. If there is one thing that SCSA is about, it’s appreciation. He finds that he is no longer appreciated. He saw Vince hug Kurt Angle behind his back, and hugging Angle like he wants to replace Austin. He is paranoid, and thinks that Vince is calling back The Rock. He says that he thinks SCSA is not good enough for Vince. He then tells the fans are not going to kick him around anymore. So, he jumped to a team that would appreciate him. He then says that he likes competition, and will not back down from anyone. Kurt Angle’s music hits! The crowd is firmly behind Angle. He then mocks Angle’s American Pride. He knows KA wants a piece of Austin, but he has a scared look in his eyes. Angle rushes the ring, and takes out Austin with a big time belly to belly suplex! The owners are holding back Austin, will Angle stands high in the ring.
