The lumberjacks for the main event were King Kong Bundy, Kama, IRS, the Heavenly Bodies, Rad Radford, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Tatanka, Men on a Mission, Henry Godwinn, Jacob & Eli Blu, Skip, Jean Pierre Lafitte, Mantaur, Savio Vega, Bam Bam Bigelow, Razor Ramon, Bob Holly, Duke Drose, Man Mountain Rock, Fatu, Techno Team 2000, the Smoking Gunns, the 1-2-3 Kid, Adam Bomb, & WWF IC Champion Shawn Michaels. The storyline leading up to the match was that "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase had supposedly bought off one of the lumberjacks, since Sycho Sid, a member of the Corporation, was in the main event, and Corporation members King Kong Bundy, Tatanka, IRS and Kama were among the lumberjacks. There was no turn by anyone.
There were two dark matches after the event, which were included on the VHS release. Bret Hart defeated Jean-Pierre Lafitte. The Undertaker (w/Paul Bearer) defeated Kama (w/Ted DiBiase) in a Casket Match.

When Jarrett got inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2018, he and James (now known as Road Dogg) performed a live duet of "With My Baby Tonight".
