We start the clip with Kevin Sullivan and Stan Hansen talking with Gordon Solie. Hansen says he can’t trust anybody around here and tells the good guys that he’s going to start looking out for himself. When Hansen mentions Ole and Gene Anderson, they come over and bully him into the ring. As Kevin Sullivan goes to help Stan, the Great Mephisto shows up and grabs Sullivan as they begin brawling. Mark Lewin runs over and grabs Sullivan from behind and slaps on the SINGAPORE SLEEPERHOLD. Some jabronis try and help out. Ole Anderson goes to help Mephisto and Lewin while Hansen beats up Gene.
