An intoxicated Scott Hall is shown walking around backstage carrying a paper sack with sounds like glass inside. He finds Doug Dellinger and tells him to go find out who wrecked his car. You know you’re in the nWo, right? Why should Dellinger help you? Dellinger suggests Hall go find some coffee, but Hall doesn’t like being told what to do – especially by a guy like Doug Dellinger. Ehh, who can blame him? Hall sarcastically tells Dellinger that his car will be easy to find because it’s the one that’s wrecked. Sounds like Scott Hall is ready to wrestle tonight.

Pretty dope Goldberg video to begin things. We don’t even see the Nitro intro yet!
