The December 20th, 1998 Edition of Heat is a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE, which took place at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington. It was taped on December 14, 1998.


X-Pac opened the show by defeating Tiger Ali Singh in a non-title match.

Backstage, Shawn Michaels is shown chatting with Big Bossman, Ken Shamrock, and The Rock.

Since Scott Taylor is still injured, Brian Christopher teamed up with Kevin Quinn and managed to defeated the Hardy Boyz. Taylor sits on commentary and cheers on Christopher.

Backstage in the boiler room, Mankind looks forward to his 3 on 1 Fatal Fourway match.

Al Snow defeated Droz in a one-on-one regular match. Animal accompanied Droz, but left halfway through the match. Hawk made a return in street clothes and a cast on his arm. Hawk clobbered Droz then Snow hit his finisher for the win. After the match, Hawk promises to tell the world their "deep, dark secret".

Before their match, the Oddities wheeled out their Christmas present to the Headbangers. After the handbeangers were knocked from the ring, they opened the gift only to reveal George "The Animal" Steele who promptly attacked them, forcing the ref to call for the bell.

Backstage, D-Generation X walk around.

In the ring, D-Generation X share the microphone. Billy Gunn and Jesse James vowed revenge on Shawn Michaels, Ken Shamrock, and Big Bossman. Triple H rhetorically asked the Rock how many times he had to beat his ass. He also promises to break Test. The Rock and Test interrupt and respond. The Rock ran down each individual member of D-X. Triple H responded with a few choice verbal barbs of his own.

The New Age Outlaws scored a tag victory over the twin Disciples of Apocalypse after Paul Ellering tried to knockout Gunn with his briefcase, but Gunn ducked and Skull got knocked out instead. After the match, DOA beat down their now former manager for costing them the match.

Backstage Mankind tosses chairs and equipment around backstage while singing Christmas carols.

As expected the non-title Fatal Four-Way match between Mankind and The Rock, Big Bossman, and Ken Shamrock was a three-on-one affair setup to punish Mankind. The Rock was the one to get the pinfall over Mankind. After the match, Vince McMahon jumped in the ring, put a sock on his hand and delivered a mandible claw on Mankind. D-Generation X made the save and scattered the Corporation as the show ended.
