April 29th 1999​
For many months, The Undertaker along with his Ministry of Darkness had vowed to take control of the World Wrestling Federation. The only force standing in his way was the McMahon family and the Corporation. However, when The Undertaker targeted Stephanie McMahon this began to break the spirit of Vince McMahon. Shane McMahon saw this as an opportunity to usurp his father and become the leader of the Corporation so that they could take out Stone Cold Steve Austin once and for all to get back the WWF Title.

Continuing at the 1999 Pay Per View Backlash, Vince McMahon had helped Stone Cold Steve Austin retain the title at the expense of The Rock to put a stop to Shane's power trip. However while this was happening, The Undertaker kidnapped Stephanie McMahon. On the following RAW, Shane McMahon fired The Rock from the Corporation and The Undertaker's unholy marriage to Stephanie was stopped by Stone Cold Steve Austin. Behind the scenes however, a merger from hell was in the works. On the pilot episode of Smackdown! dated April 29th 1999, Shane McMahon interupted a promo between mortal enemies The Rock & Stone Cold Steve Austin and shocked everyone as out standing beside him moments later was The Undertaker. Shane went on to declare the formation of the Corporate Ministry, a combination of the remaining Team Corporate and Ministry of Darkness members. The mission of this new faction? To destroy common foes, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock & Vince McMahon and rule supreme in the Federation! Who would rise to meet this deadly new threat?
