The stipulations regarding the three-team (NWO [Hollywood Hogan, the Outsiders and Randy Savage], WCW [Lex Luger, the Giant and Scott Steiner] and Team Piper [Roddy Piper, Chris Benoit, Jeff Jarrett and Steve McMichael]) were: If Team WCW wins, the NWO are stripped of all their titles and can not wrestle for three years. If Team Piper wins, Roddy Piper gets a cage match with Hogan for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship. If Team NWO wins, they can challenge for any title they want at any time. The NWO won, though the stipulation was forgotten.
