Recap
1 July 2002 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews

For the third time in its history, SummerSlam returned to Madison Square Garden in 1998. 1998 actually marked the 10th anniversary of SummerSlam, so it was only fitting that the main event would be a battle of two WWE legends. Stone Cold Steve Austin defended his WWE Championship against the Undertaker in the main event in what was deemed the "Highway to Hell." Ultimately, Austin would pin the Undertaker to retain his title. Also at SummerSlam 1999, Triple H defeated The Rock in a brutal ladder match to net his second Intercontinental Championship, and the New Age Outlaws topped Mankind and Kane to nab their third Tag Team Championship.

European Champion D'Lo Brown defeated Val Venis by DQ The Oddities defeated Kaientai X-Pac pinned Jeff Jarrett in a Hair vs. Hair Match Edge & Sable defeated Marc Mero & Jacqueline Ken Shamrock defeated Owen Hart in a Lion's Den Match New Age Outlaws defeated Mankind & Kane to win the Tag Team Championship Triple H defeated The Rock in a Ladder Match to win the Intercontinental Title WWE Champion Stone Cold Steve Austin pinned Undertaker
