Mayhem in Manchester was a United Kingdom-only professional wrestlingpay-per-view event produced by the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) that took place on 4 April, 1998 at the Nynex Arena in Manchester, England. The event was released later in an edited form on VHS in North America and in the UK. With the sole exception of the "Old School" editions of WWE Raw on November 15, 2010, March 4, 2013, and January 6 2014, this was the last ever WWF event to feature the WWF New Generation logo with the posts, ring skirt, floor mats and steps as light blue with the ropes colored red, white and blue.

Another rivalry heading into the event was between WWF ChampionSteve Austin and Triple H. After Austin defeated Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania to win the WWF Championship, Michaels retired from professional wrestling due to back injury (He returned to wrestling at 2002), and then Austin continued his feud with D-Generation X members. It was announced that Austin would face Triple H for the WWF Championship at Mayhem in Manchester.
