–Tony Schiavone and Bobby Heenan are calling the matches and they are live from Norfolk, Virginia.
–Gene Okerlund interviews Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, and Sting. The crowd gives Hogan a mixed reaction as he talks about how he has not fully embraced the dark side and is going back to his babyface persona. He sheds his black gear, which Sting tosses into a black container that explodes. The problem is that the fire gets to be too much, so Sting has to keep going back to the container to pour water on it or keep down the smoke. WCW technicians are eventually forced to put it out. Savage tells Sting that he is cool with him again as Sting acts like a star-struck teenager. Hogan says that Savage’s arm is not actually hurt and goes into a crazy rant about a “rag sheet” that said the Giant was going to win – the rag sheet in question being a copy of Dave Meltzer’s Wrestling Observer – and how the Internet has the “real scoops.” The Observer copy is burned as regular fans at home have no idea what Hogan is talking about.
