The Undertaker's opponent was originally planned to have been The Big Show, since they were tag-team partners at the previous year's SummerSlam. But Big Show was sent down to Ohio Valley Wrestling because of a combination of attitude problems and weight issues, and Kane was brought in as his replacement.
In the triple threat main event, Kurt Angle legitimately got a concussion after the table prematurely broke during the botched pedigree attempt before Rock showed up. His performance during the match in such circumstances would lead to Vince having him win the WWF title 2 months later.
The Eddie Guerrero/Chyna-Val Venis/Trish Stratus match was for Val's Intercontinental Heavyweight Title and the stipulation was that whoever scored the pin would win the title. Chyna pinned Trish to win the title.
Dave Meltzer's "The Wrestling Observer Newsletter" rated the Chris Benoit-Chris Jericho 2 out of 3 Falls Match 3 1/4 stars, the TLC match 4 1/2 stars and the HHH-The Rock-Kurt Angle match 3 3/4 stars out of a maximum possible five.
The Steve Blackman-Shane McMahon, Chris Benoit-Chris Jericho, TLC and HHH-Rock-Kurt Angle matches are the only ones that broke the ten-minute mark. The HHH-Rock-Kurt Angle match was the longest, at 20:11. The Thong Stinkface Match between Terri Runnels and the Kat was the shortest, at 3:07, for obvious reasons.
