–Gene Okerlund interviews WCW Champion Hulk Hogan in a dark room. Hogan says he misses Andre the Giant and how it was unfair the Pontiac Silverdome did not chant Andre’s name. He does his best to act dramatic, sniffing Andre’s old shirt, as he says he felt Andre’s presence when the Giant threw the shirt at him at Bash at the Beach and that rumors of Andre having a son were true. Hogan concludes by saying that the time has come to rise and face the challenge of the Giant again and to do so he will have to fight through the Dungeon of Doom. That journey will start on next week’s Main Event.
