Outside the United Center, Eric Bischoff yells at building security and Doug Dellinger to keep Ric Flair out of the building. He’s an easy guy to spot: big nose, white hair, and goes WOO all the time. He’ll also be surrounded by the ugliest people you’ll ever see, so KEEP THEM OUT.

We quickly go back to last week on Nitro where Sting was being fitted with a neck brace and a stretcher as a result of his backstage brawl with Bret Hart.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, and Mike Tenay. Tony announces that the Sting versus Hogan match has been signed for December. Weird that he never mentions the word “Starrcade”. The contract signing took place this past Tuesday night during the Assault on Devil’s Island TV movie starring Hollywood Hogan, Carl Weathers, and that blonde chick from all the Cinemax movies who married Gene Simmons. Anywho, Tony gives Hogan some credit mentioning that the premiere was one of the top four highest-rated cable TV movies in the history of our sport. After we see the same clips we saw last week of the movie, they re-air the contract signing. Now let’s get to the ring! Read the rest of this entry
