When he was booked against returning enhancement star Duane Gill, it became obvious McMahon would do everything in his power to pave the way for the disheveled star to become champion. The same could not be said for Austin, who would endure a brutal beating from Big Boss Man in the first round of competition, leaving him prone for defeat in the ensuing rounds. The Rock's scheduled opponent, Triple H, was unable to compete, so he squared off with the aforementioned Big Boss Man.
Unfortunately for the bodyguard of the Chairman, he rushed the ring and was immediately rolled up by The Great One, who earned his first victory of the tournament in three seconds.

Mankind would survive a battle with Al Snow in the quarterfinals, Austin received a bye and Rock benefited from botched interference by, you guessed it, Boss Man in order to scoot by Ken Shamrock, setting up an interesting semifinal round. A physical war and the best match on the show to that point, The Texas Rattlesnake overcame chicanery and was in a position to cash his ticket to the finals when he dropped Mankind with a Stone Cold Stunner and covered.
With the official down, Shane hit the ring and smacked the mat twice. He pulled up before the three and flipped Austin the bird, revealing the first step in a master plan to screw over the company's top star.

Boss Man again attempted to cost Rock the match but ate a nasty right hand from The Deadman, who was none-too-pleased with the corporate bodyguard's involvement in his match. Undertaker would see his dreams of winning the title disintegrate before his very eyes as his brother, and nemesis, Kane interfered and attacked Rock, drawing a disqualification.

A brutal, chaotic brawl, the finals set the stage for every match those two wrestlers would have with each other in the ensuing months. Late in the bout, Rock grounded Mankind, looked over at the McMahons and raised his eyebrow. Then, in an ode to the Survivor Series main event finish, he trapped Mankind in the Sharpshooter.
Vince called for the bell, and the fans in St. Louis sat in stunned silence, realizing Mankind never tapped out and worse, they had all been played for fools. Rock, Vince and Shane embraced in the center of the ring and celebrated the fact they had pulled the proverbial wool over the eyes of WWE fans and Superstars alike. For weeks leading into the show, both he and co-writer Ed Ferrara dropped hints, subtleties and happy coincidences that eluded to the fact Rock and the McMahons were fooling the entire WWE Universe.
