Isaac Yankem and Bret Hart cut dueling promos against each other from inside of a steel cage to hype their match tonight.  Jerry Lawler adds his thoughts for good measure.  The setting looks cool as the ring is only illuminated by a few stage lights while the rest of the arena is dark.

Since this is the new fall season, Superstars gets a new theme song for the first time in more than a year, with it being a knockoff of the Monday Night Football theme asking “Are you ready?”  The funny thing with an intro like this is that half the talent in it had quit or was released by January 1996 so they had to redo the lyrics, all of which were tied to a specific superstar.
