Near the end of the Goldberg vs. Lesnar match, a Hulk Hogan impersonator in the nosebleeds managed to get nearly the entire crowd focused on him instead of the match. This lead to many of the fan members noticeably turning their heads to the upper right of the TV screen and as well as "popping" for him and starting many "Hogan" chants. The crowd's attention would remain on the man until redirected to the match by a Goldberg Spear.
Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero, longtime friends outside the ring, would go on to leave this event holding both major WWE titles (the World Heavyweight and WWE Championship respectively). Less than four years later, both men would pass away (Guerrero in '05, Benoit in '07).
According to Brock Lesnar in Power Slam issue 162, he and Bill Goldberg did not want to be there performing in front of the fans. This was both their last matches with the company and resulted in fans ripping into Lesnar with chants such as 'You sold out' and 'Na, Na, Na, hey hey good bye'.
The match between Sable & Torrie Wilson against Stacy Keibler & Miss Jackie was billed as an evening gown match but was changed at the last minute to a normal rules Lingerie match because Sable had problems with her back.
Trish Stratus became a villain when she slapped Chris Jericho in the face here. She had become a fan favorite exactly three years ago when she slapped Vince McMahon (also a former lover) in the face at WrestleMania X-Seven.
