Hollywood Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Elizabeth, and the Disciple show up to the building in a black limo. They seem to be in high spirits despite having to deal with the Warrior last week and the fact that he’s starting a REVOLUTION tonight. They go straight from the limo the ring to discuss what they want to discuss. Bischoff pulls out a pen from his jacket to prove a point that the pen is the most powerful thing in the universe [besides Hollywood Hogan, of course]. He has managed to get rid of Vader and Johnny B. Badd with a pen, and he’ll continue to keep whoever he wants out or in [looking at you, Eddie Guerrero] he chooses. Notice how Steve Austin wasn’t mentioned. Hogan wants to beat somebody up real bad tonight. He calls DDP a “puke” and says he doesn’t have the power or the stroke around here to bring Warrior to Wargames. As for WOYAH, the people might as well forget about him because the last time he and Hogan met, Warrior ran away from him for eight years. He announces Bischoff is the man with the stroke around here and Warrior won’t be at Wargames. Hogan is losing his voice at this point. Hulk can’t wait to get his hands on the nWo Wolfpac at Fall Brawl. Now that DDP will be in Wargames all alone, Hogan will rip him limb from limb, win Wargames, and go on to make Goldberg drop to his knees to beg Hogan to stop beating him up and declare that Hogan is in fact the man. As God as Hogan’s witness, he will make Goldberg beg for forgiveness. 4-LIFE, BROTHER. Now worship the ground Hogan walks on, ladies and gentlemen. Cut it short, Hogan’s throat is GONE.

We open the show with a horrific view of Ric Flair lying comatose on an operating table with his head stitched up. If you didn’t watch Fall Brawl, you might think he was dead.

HOUR NUMBER ONE! Your hosts are Tony Schiavone, Larry Zbyszko, and Mike Tenay. Realizing all he has done for his career, Tony feels like he can’t do the show tonight and walks off. We see more brutality from Fall Brawl including the nasty bump Chris Benoit takes over the ropes into the Wargames cage as well as Curt Hennig slamming the cage door on Flair’s head. Buy the replay, ya’ll.

This is a hot Charlotte crowd that doesn’t seem to remember their hero has fallen. SHUT UP AND BE DEPRESSED.
